Welcome to the Revolutionary World of Quicksilver Scientific – The Leader in Detox & Delivery!
Quicksilver Scientific Founder & CEO, Dr. Christopher Shade obtained his PhD in environmental metals chemistry from the University of Illinois. During his PhD work, Dr. Shade patented analytical technology for mercury speciation analysis and later founded Quicksilver Scientific, Inc. to commercialize this technology. Shortly after starting Quicksilver Scientific, Dr. Shade turned his focus to the human aspects of mercury toxicity and the functioning of the human detoxification system. He has since researched and developed superior liposomal delivery systems for the nutraceutical and wellness markets; and his clinical analytical techniques for measuring human mercury exposure are unique and more comprehensive than anything in the industry. Thanks to Dr. Shade’s deep understanding of mercury and glutathione chemistry, he was able to design this breakthrough system of products for detoxification that support and maximize the natural detoxification system. Formulated to target specific detoxification pathways, Dr. Shade’s bundles and protocols combine his knowledge for maximum effect. These bundles create a powerful entourage effect that helps the body maintain homeostasis and metabolic balance for optimal health.
The Detoxification System
Detoxification is a natural process inherent to the human body. Over time, our bodies accumulate a variety of toxins from our environment, food sources, and “silver” mercury amalgam tooth fillings: and as we accumulate more toxins, we become less effective at detoxifying ourselves. Efficient detoxification depends on a series of seamless reactions that bind toxins to shuttle molecules and “escort” them out through a series of doors. The glutathione system is the most important of the detoxification systems and includes glutathione and the enzymes that work with it. The detoxification process proceeds in three parts or “phases”, Phase I, Phase II, and Phase III. Dysfunction of the detoxification system is the most common and insidious root cause of toxic element and compound accumulation in the body. True health requires that all phases function in balance, or the whole system cannot work properly. Quicksilver Scientific’s CEO & founder, Dr. Christopher Shade, PhD, is an expert in mercury research.
Successful Detoxification of Mercury and other Heavy Metals (e.g. lead, cadmium, arsenic) requires three Fundamental Conditions:
- Fully-functioning Phase III detoxification transport system (MRP1&2, OATP)
- Fully-functioning Phase II enzyme, Glutathione S-transferase (GTS)
- Adequate intracellular glutathione levels
Quicksilver Scientific’s Therapeutic Detoxification System is the ONLY detox system that specifically targets all three detoxification requirements!
Disruptions in Natural Body-wide Detoxification
Intestinal inflammation inhibits elimination of toxins by causing a strong down-regulation of the body’s natural detoxification pathways. Unfortunately, exposure to pesticides, chemicals and certain toxins, such as the corrosion by-products of dental mercury amalgam (”silver” fillings) contributes to intestinal inflammation. In addition to inflammation, it has been demonstrated that a build up of metals alone slows the transport proteins. The data suggests that continuous removal of metals from the intestines is essential for the proper daily functioning of natural detoxification processes. The continuous removal of metals is also critical for any successful practitioner-directed detoxification program.
Consequences of Impaired Detoxification
- Downregulation of toxin transporters
- Downregulation of Phase II detoxification enzymes
- Under expression of cellular antioxidants
- Relative overexpression of oxidative Phase I enzymes
- Systemic toxicity and oxidative stress!
- Increased susceptibility to chronic disease!
