What is the role of binders and are they part of BodyBio's approach to cellular wellness?Updated 5 months ago

Binders are substances that latch onto bile acids, forestalling their reabsorption within the digestive tract, and as a result, lower cholesterol levels. However, it's important to exercise caution when using binders, as they are best employed after the integrity of the cell membrane has been re-established through phospholipid and fatty acid therapies, and when cholesterol levels and bile flow have been optimized.

It's also crucial to bear in mind that binders can inadvertently strip the body of beneficial minerals. While gentler binders such as zeolite, charcoal, and chlorella are often more accommodating, harsher binders can potentially pose challenges. You can delve into further details on this topic through the following link: NCBI - Bile Acid Sequestrants.

At BodyBio, our focal point is cellular wellness, particularly the well-being of cell membranes, and binders do not form part of our core ecosystem. However, this doesn't imply that binders should be categorically avoided. In certain circumstances, especially in cases of mold toxicity or exposure to other toxins, binders can be a valuable ally.

We highly recommend consulting with a healthcare professional who possesses expertise in both cell membrane health and the judicious use of binders to ensure a balanced and targeted approach to your well-being.
