11 Minute Read

Mold is a common problem in homes, apartment buildings, and even commercial spaces… especially if they are older or have ever experienced pipe or water damage. Exposure to mold can have serious health consequences, prolonged inflammatory issues, and impacts on your immunity. It's important to be able to spot the signs of toxic mold exposure so you can detox from mold exposure as fast as possible. 

Mold is a type of fungus that grows in damp, humid conditions, and it can release spores that can cause respiratory problems, allergies, and other health issues. Mycotoxins, or toxic compounds that are naturally produced by certain types of moulds (fungi) naturally manifest in the liver because the liver is  responsible for processing those toxins which enter the human body. Because of this, it is paramount to detox and flush the liver of external and internal toxins daily.

In this article, we will discuss mold exposure symptoms, how to detox from mold exposure, and how Juna's Chlorophyll Detox Drops can support daily detoxification.
