"We have a lot of compounds that we've extracted from plants, pure things like curcumin and resveratrol and quercetin. And we have all the biochemical data on the pathways that they target. But even the drug companies know how good these are for the different pathways. But the reason they don't use them is because they have poor bioavailability and you can't get them into the system. So we need some way to cheat the normal absorption and increase it" [6:28] -Dr. Shade

"You need something that moves toxins and something that catches toxins. We call it push catch or mobilize and bind. The catch the toxins is simple. Those are what we call the binders. The most characteristic of them, and simplest of them is activated charcoal." [28:25] -Dr. Shade
