How Pesticides Scramble Your Immune System

How Pesticides Scramble Your Immune System - ecoNugenics

In today’s fast-changing world, immune support is a top priority. The last thing you want to do is damage this precious defense system. But there’s a good chance you’re doing exactly that when you take a bite of your next meal—even if it’s made with “organic” food. 

The unfortunate truth is that toxic pesticides and agricultural chemicals are so widely used that they end up everywhere. It’s called “pesticide drift” and it means that these harmful poisons wind up places they shouldn’t— in organic fields, schools and residential areas…and inside your body. 

This doesn’t even account for the exposure you get from eating conventionally grown, non-organic foods—because sadly, in many cases that’s all that you may find available right now… 

Not Your Grandma’s Chicken Soup

Your immune system is a carefully balanced, precision-tuned network of powerful players. When running smoothly, it can tackle a problem quickly and retreat when no longer needed—so you don’t get an immune over-reaction, like an inflammatory autoimmune flare-up.

But the truth is, your body didn’t evolve to handle the barrage of toxins you battle every day in the modern environment.  This collective accumulation of environmental chemicals has been termed, “toxic soup.” The findings that are emerging around this “toxic soup effect” are not looking good—especially when it comes to immunity.

Cytokines and Pesticides

Immune cells—and the complex communication signals they send out, called cytokines—are especially sensitive to these toxins. Specifically, human data shows that pesticide exposure impacts your immune system by disturbing the delicate balance of cytokines.

Research shows that certain pesticides fuel the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, like TNF-alpha, Interleukin 6, and others. Other pesticides disrupt the balance of cytokines that help regulate immune response and prevent immune overreactions.

Keeping cytokines in balance is critical during these times. That’s because data is pointing to a phenomena called the cytokine storm—an explosion of inflammatory cytokines— as a driving factor in the complications around emerging global challenges.

Gut Health, Immunity and Glyphosate

Exposure to pesticides and agricultural chemicals spells bad news for the good bacteria in your gut. The worst offender is glyphosate, the most widely used agricultural chemical in the US.

Glyphosate is especially bad for your microbiome—the delicate ecosystem of friendly flora in your gut. Friendly bacteria play vital roles in nourishing and optimizing your immune system. But glyphosate reduces the diversity and health of these bacteria, effectively derailing your immune system—while at the same time, creating an environment for nasty microbes to take over. 

Targeted Pesticide Detox and Defense

Protecting your body from the impacts of pesticides—especially glyphosate—is essential for a healthy, robust and precision-tuned immune system.

ecoNugenics founder and master formulator Dr. Isaac Eliaz is all too familiar with the effects of pesticide exposure in his patients. These observations, together with the alarming data on the impacts of glyphosate and other pesticides, led Dr. Eliaz on a quest to solve this widespread issue with an effective, natural solution.

After extensive research and clinical application, he perfected the formula, GlyphoDetox.



The first supplement of its kind to actively detox and defend against pesticides, GlyphoDetox promotes gut health and nutrition with powerful antioxidants and essential detox nutrients.

This expert blend of four natural detox ingredients targets a broad range of pesticides and agricultural chemicals, and safely removes them from the body. At the same time, ingredients in GlyphoDetox work to block these toxins from being stored in sensitive organs and tissues, like the thyroid. 

GlyphoDetox can be used alone to defend against pesticide exposure. But for the highest level of detoxification support and health renewal, GlyphoDetox is also designed to synergize with ecoNugenics other research-based detoxification formulas: 

PectaClear® Environmental Toxin Cleanse for heavy metals and environmental toxins, including radioactive particles. 

ecoDetox® Total Body Detox for optimal function of the liver, kidneys, skin and other elimination systems.
