The Environmental Defense System


St. John’s Environmental Defense System is a 2-Part System designed to eliminate glyphosate and other pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, and toxins from the body using clinically validated ingredients. 


The Environmental Defense System consists of Formulas 1 and 2 as well as a third supplemental formula for use as a simplified or stand alone product. 


St. John’s is finding that many companies try to be elusive when discussing the ingredients of their products.   We are thankful for ours! 




Formula 1:


  • Fulvic AcidThe electrical charge of fulvic acid allows it to ‘catch’ heavy metals, toxins and other harmful substances in your body. Once caught, it quickly works to break down these harmful substances to make them more water-soluble. When these toxins take on a more water-soluble form it makes it easier for them to be flushed out of your body. This makes fulvic acid a natural detox for your body.

  • Bentonite ClayBentonite clay molecules carry a negative electrical charge while toxins and impurities carry a positive charge. When the clay is ingested into the body, the positively charges toxins are attracted to the negatively charged surfaces of the clay molecule.  They are then flushed from the system.

  • L glycineGlycine is a non-essential amino acid that is produced naturally by the body. It is one of 20 amino acids in the human body that synthesize proteins, and it plays a key role in the creation of several other important compounds and proteins. Glyphosate (N-phosphonomethyl glycine) and its commercial herbicide formulations have been shown to exert toxicity via various mechanisms. It has been asserted that glyphosate substitutes for glycine in polypeptide chains leading to protein misfolding and toxicity.  Taking supplemental glycine has been shown to prevent this mimicry from happening.


Glyphosate chelates or removes micro and macro nutrients from the plants they are applied to. You read that correct. The foods you are eating have LESS nutrition than they should because of glyphosate being applied in such large amounts. We, the American people, are then fed the glyphosate that is sprayed on these plants. This glyphosate then does to YOU what it does to the plants. It binds to your micro and macro nutrients and removes them leaving your immune system depleted and you susceptible to pathogens. Once the glyphosate gets into your body, it is recognized by your body as “glycine” which is an essential amino acid found in your cells. Your body then replaces your glycine with this foreign glycine look-alike and then replication happens. We all know what happens after that. We have toxic cells wreaking havoc all over our body! This has also been linked to autism. From the liver to the gut to the brain and all over, glyphosate is causing damage on a daily basis and is legally being saturated on everything.


Glyphosate in Food is Now Finally Getting the Blow it Deserves (boldbusiness.com)


  • Bifidobacterium breve. Bifidobacterium longum. Bifidobacterium infantis. Lactobacillus acidophilus. Lactobacillus plantarum. Lactobacillus casei-  Your gut probiotics are destroyed by glyphosate ingestion, so adding probiotics back are imperative.


Another issue that rode the wave to the top of the glyphosate trip was gut health in general. Glyphosate was created to KILL LIVING ORGANISMS. You are a living organism with a lot of organisms living inside of you. As soon as that glyphosate hits your mouth, it starts to work destroying your good bacterium from your mouth all the way to our gut and then to your intestines. With all of your good friendly bacteria gone, it leaves all the bad bacteria to flourish causing systemic inflammation, bacterial infections, overgrowth of yeast that will not go away, acid reflux, bloating, weight gain, inability to lose weight, and the list goes on. Glyphosate has also been shown to cause Celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, and colon cancer. It is not a GLUTEN sensitivity… it is a GLYPHOSATE sensitivity!!

Formula 2:





  • Berberine-  Berberine has been shown to detox and remove glyphosate from the body.

  • SilymarinGlyphosate interferes with the liver's ability to process fats, causing them to accumulate in the organ.  Glyphosate also damages genes that regulate fat metabolism in the liver.  Taking silymarin has been shown to counteract these issues and nourish the liver.


Studies show that liver damage occurs at lower than “legal” limits, for as short as a 2 week period. Glyphosate causes liver inflammation which leads to a host of problems including liver fibrosis, cirrhosis, cancer, and it is also responsible for the most common form of liver disease… non alcoholic fatty liver. Non Alcoholic fatty liver has risen worldwide right along with the rising use of glyphosate.

  • ManganeseManganese is stripped from the body by glyphosate.  Manganese is an important nutrient that is required in small amounts for multiple essential functions in the body:
  • Mn superoxide dismutase protects mitochondria from oxidative damage
  • Chondroitin sulfate synthesis depends on Mn (deficiency leads to osteoporosis and osteomalacia)
  • Lactobacillus (often deficient in autism patients) depend critically on Mn for antioxidant protection
  • Lactobacillus probiotics also can treat anxiety
  • Reduced gut Lactobacillus leads to overgrowth of the pathogen, Salmonella
  • Sperm motility depends on Mn

  • Dandelion Root ExtractGlyphosate seems to have acquired the ability to destroy the renal tissues of thousands of farmers when it forms complexes with a localized geo environmental factor (hardness) and nephrotoxic metals.  Dandelion Root helps to nourish, protect, and repair damage done by pesticides.

Sri Lanka went as far as to claim that there is mounting evidence pointing at chemical products used in agriculture, suggesting that CKDu should be renamed “chronic agrochemical nephropathy”.

  • Burdock Root ExtractRecent evidence has found that burdock root contains active ingredients in its root system that can remove toxins from the bloodstream. Research also found that burdock root effectively detoxified blood and promoted increased circulation in the surface of the skin.

Roundup is the most widely used pesticide and herbicide worldwide. Roundup is a suspension of glyphosate plus a lot of other harmful chemicals. Most of these disturbing studies were done using glyphosate on its own, when in reality, as glyphosate is combined with other chemicals found in Roundup its effects are intensified. 99.8% of urine samples tested from France had recordable levels of glyphosate and the most recent CDC study showed that in the United States, over 80% of people have glyphosate in their body. Almost everyone you know has some side effect they are dealing with from glyphosate in their bodies and likely have no clue what the culprit is.

Glyphosate is used on the majority of corn, cotton, wheat, soybeans, and sugar beets even if it is labeled as NON GMO. Glyphosate is used as a drying agent that is applied after the crop is harvested. It will not wash off of the plants or food. It is then served to you in your meals, made into the clothes you wear, fed to the animals you eat, and ends up in your tap water, lakes and rivers. If you take collagen or consume gelatin or any other animal product that is not organic, it is fed GMO glyphosate ridden food that is then transferred to you.

It has been shown in studies with human and animal cells that long exposures to low doses of glyphosate can cause endocrine system disorders, hormone issues, masculinization of females, feminization of males, and reproductive issues. It has also been shown in medical studies that glyphosate breaks down the blood brain barrier, crosses and allows aluminum and other toxic chemicals and metals into the brain which can lead to Alzheimer’s disease. Studies have also linked glyphosate with several auto immune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, muscular sclerosis, and has been shown to deplete manganese, a micronutrient vital to your thyroid health.

Roundup has been shown in studies to cause embryonic development failures, premature births, birth defects and it has also been found in childhood vaccines. Moms Across America published the findings of 5 childhood vaccines tested and all 5 were positive for glyphosate. The MMR vaccine which has been linked to autism showed 25x higher levels than the other vaccines tested for glyphosate. This is yet another link with autism and glyphosate. Autism has risen worldwide with the rising use of glyphosate. Most of these glyphosate studies have been done on oral ingestion of glyphosate so injecting glyphosate into your body only amplifies the toxicity.

Poisons such as Chloropicrin, DDT, Agent Orange, Paraquat, Atrazine, and Glyphosate were designed to help companies gain more profits from mass food crop sales.  Unfortunately, this profit has come at the expense of the entire population of the Earth.  The mentioned poisons have all been removed from the market or are under current legislation or civil court litigation regarding their dangers to the public heath.  There are now numerous studies that have proven the dangers of poisons such as glyphosate, the main ingredient of Roundup, the accumulation of these poisons in the tissue of humans and other animals, and how this accumulation of poison is contributing to a myriad of health disorders.  Many of these health disorders and conditions are new or rare, with a direct increase of particular health disorders in direct relation to the increase of herbicide and pesticide use on commercial and personal crops. 

Seeing such a need for a system designed to detoxify these pesticides as well as heavy metals, St. John’s Nutrition has spent many sleepless nights researching, formulating, and testing what is the most important formula since our Covid-19 Protocol. 

Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to protect yourself from glyphosate. It is not going to be easy or fun to make these health saving changes at first but until glyphosate is banned most humans, animals, and plants will be constantly coming in contact with it whether through rain, water, food, clothing, or just breathing.


Last year, a study in Mississippi collected and tested air and rainwater samples for glyphosate. The results showed 86% of air samples and 77% of rainwater samples were contaminated with glyphosate. That “spray” also travels up to 3 miles and lands on everything along the way whether it is your child riding their bike outside, your BBQ grill, your swimming pool, dog park, kids playground, organic neighbor farms, or anything within 3 miles of the spray.




Here are a few ways to help decrease your daily intake of glyphosate:




Avoid all vaccines until glyphosate is banned.


Avoid white table sugar, use organic cane sugar instead


Avoid all gelatin unless certified organic. Glyphosate is stored in the animals they get the gelatin from.


Do not use Roundup.


Do not let anyone use Roundup anywhere near your home.


Eat organic foods as much as possible. Next best is NON GMO. Look for the USDA Certified Organic on the label. Companies are very tricky and will call themselves organic in their name but not have that certification on the label.


Be careful with the meat you eat, as most cattle and chickens are fed glyphosate saturated crops; eat only organic meat or chicken.


Be sure your tap water is purified – that it’s gone through a filter that takes out chemicals such as glyphosate. Don’t cook with unfiltered water.


At a restaurant, ask for bottled water.


Detox glyphosate from your body regularly.
