Benefit from the knowledge of the Superfood
Do you have a question about nutritional cleansing? Are you a new cleanser, but unsure how to use the products? Not to worry—we’ve put together some of the most common questions and answers. As you begin a new journey, we hope these FAQ will assist you.
Q. Why do I need nutritional cleansing?
A. Toxins and stress in our modern environment subject our bodies to continual risk of poor health. Once you begin cleansing you’ll notice you’ll feel cleaner (like the feeling you get after a shower), and more energized. You’ll be healthier, too. Next time you look in the mirror you may also notice you are a few pounds leaner.
Q. How does nutritional cleansing work?
A. Over time, the human body has had to adjust to natural toxins in the environment, often with significant help from certain plants that provide special active components. Nutritional cleansing enlists a blend of these botanicals along with vitamins and minerals to support the body nutritionally for the modern world’s onslaught of new toxins.
One of Our Products Contains the Following:
Ashwaghanda (Withania somnifera), also known as Winter Cherry, is classified in Ayurvedic medicine as a plant that helps the body resist stress. The plant helps reduce oxidative stress, supports liver health and detoxification, and has potential for slowing aging.
Yellow Dock (Rumex crispus) leaves, sometimes used in salads, can help encourage bile production, serving the needs of the liver for ridding itself of toxins. In larger doses, it can serve in helping with constipation.
Bilberry, Blueberry and Raspberry. These three berries are well known for their antioxidant activity and are touted for supporting vision and mental health. They also assist in strongly supporting detoxification. Raspberry’s content of ellagic acid provides strong free-radical scavenging activity.
Aloe Vera Gel consists of polysaccharides, glycoproteins, amino acids, vitamins and minerals. The gel can help soothe and reduce inflammation in the gut and colon, may enhance bioavailability of vitamins C and E and its natural antioxidant activity can help reduce oxidative stress.
The gel’s polysaccharides have been studied for their ability to balance the immune system and their actions as natural detoxifiers, helping to move along biochemical processes in the liver to neutralize toxins.
Pau d’Arco (Tabebuia heptaphylla) is an herb with a history of use in Paraguay for a wide variety of ailments. It nourishes cells within the digestive tract and can help the body resist infection. The plant may help reduce inflammation and guard against damage from cumulative toxins.
Burdock Root (Arctium lappa) has a historic use as a blood purifier and helps rid the circulation system of toxins. This thistle relative offers components that help protect the liver.
Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra), or DGL, is commonly used for detoxification in Asia and helps offer protection to the liver. Its antioxidant activity helps protect DNA against damage. We use the deglycyrrhizinated version of licorice root so there’s no contraindication for people with high blood pressure.
B Vitamins are needed to support your metabolism to break down fats and carbohydrates. Daily B vitamins can also support your immune system and help maintain muscle tone, healthy skin, and steady energy.
