Metallothioneins  

These amino acid based proteins in the body help in eliminating toxins that we absorb on a daily basis. Increasing their production can enhance the body’s detoxifying potential. When ascorbate, magnesium and polyphenolics are high, metallothionein soaks up and chaperones the toxic minerals out of the body efficiently. When these nutrients are low, especially in those with a weakened immune system or a chronic illness, cells shift to survival mode from elective protective mode – metallothionein production is down regulated and toxic minerals become biohazards.
