InViteⓇ Health Podcast, Episode hosted by Amanda Williams, MPH
Today I want to talk a little bit about the impact that air pollution has on our overall health, including the detoxification process, heart health, liver health and brain health. It’s very essential that we really get into why it is that healthy lifestyle choices, such as the foods you eat, the supplements you take and limiting your exposure to things that can be detrimental to your health.†
How does this impact inflammation?
Let’s talk about chronic low-grade inflammation. If you keep that in check in your middle ages, you’ll do much better when you get into your 70s. This is one of those areas that you always want to be aware of and you want to make sure that you are incorporating good omega-3 fatty acids into your everyday diet.†

A study that came out of the UK talked about how air pollution may be linked to heightened dementia risk. They said that air pollution is now an established risk factor for heart disease, stroke and respiratory disease, but they really wanted to look at the impact of air pollution when it came to neurodegenerative disorders, such as the development of dementia.†
The researchers looked at data from over 130,000 people in the UK between the ages of 50 and 79. These are people who had not been diagnosed with any cognitive dysfunctions. The researchers then looked at their exposure to air pollution based on their proximity to the airport or heavy traffic road areas. They wanted to see if there was a correlation between how the air pollutants themselves were actually impacting the overall brain. Interestingly enough, they were able to draw that conclusion. They found that those who were living in areas with the highest percentage of pollutants in the air had about a 40% greater risk of being diagnosed with dementia than those that were living in areas where air pollutants were much lower.†
Nutrients to help mitigate the impacts of air pollution
So what can we do to mitigate the harmful impacts of air pollution? This is where products such as the Detox HxⓇ and the Oranges HxⓇ both come into play.†
When you’re looking at the Detox HxⓇ, for example, this is basically combining key nutrients and antioxidants that really help the body when it comes to the proper detoxification of all these different things that we’re exposed to. It contains NAC, which is this really wonderful nutrient that helps our body in terms of enhancing our glutathione production. Glutathione matters because it is the body’s primary antioxidant. However, toxins and pollutants in the body can cause glutathione levels to diminish, which leaves us open to a lot of cellular damage.†
You can also combine the Oranges HxⓇ with this. This formulation is very beneficial for heart health, brain health and liver health. It contains key nutrients, such as the amino acid taurine, which plays a role in cardiovascular health, eye health and liver function. This formulation also provides antioxidants in the liver. The more antioxidants we have in our system, the better off we are when it comes to being able to fend off oxidative stress. The Oranges HxⓇ is a simple supplement to take because you just mix a scoop in with water, but you’re getting really important nutrients.†

When we think about what we do every single day, I think we frequently overlook the impact of pollutants. Oftentimes, people try to eat healthy and take supplements like a multivitamin and fish oil, which is all great. But if you’re in the city, you have to think about other things that can arise, such as your overexposure to air pollutants. Nutrient-rich supplements such as Detox HxⓇ and Oranges HxⓇ can help.†
