Decrease toxic build-up in the body
Many health professionals agree that most, if not all, major diseases start in the colon.
Killer diseases today are non-infectious rather than infectious, with heart disease, colon cancer, lung tumors, gallstones, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, obesity, and diabetes listed as today's most troubling health problems. These diseases and many others have been related to diets which are low in starch and fiber, and high in fat, sugar, and highly refined foods. The very best diet cannot promote good health if the colon is clogged with a collection of waste.
Nutri Cleanse contains the following ingredients
Sometimes referred to as "colon's broom", Plantago Blonde is a fabulous crude fiber that has twice the bulking capacity of bran. This non-digestible fiber helps scrub the convolutions in the intestinal tract, loosening and cleaning putrefying toxins, while acting as an intestinal lubricant. Because of its content of mucilage, it is used as a demulcent. It absorbs and retains water and, therefore, creates a natural "laxative effect."
A dietary fiber from ground endosperms of the seeds of Cyamopsis Psoroliodes. Guar is a digestive fiber used throughout the food industry as a thickening agent. It helps regulate the rate of absorption of nutrients, including sugar, spreading it over a longer period of time. The result is a slower rise in blood sugar levels and a less rapid subsequent drop.
A single cell member of the Chlorophycene (green algae) family. Its nutritive value, high plant protein and chlorophyll content make it one of the world's best foods. Nutri-Cleanse contains a special broken cell wall chlorella which has been shown to increase its digestibility and bio-availability.
Truly nature's aid to digestion. Aloe Vera is loaded with enzymes, minerals and vitamins!
Research has proven that carotenoids have antioxidant, anticarcinogenic, and immune enhancing properties. Dunaliella Salina microalgae contains the powerful carotenoid family alpha and beta carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin and cryptoxanthin. This powerhouse combination protects against free radical cell damage responsible for premature aging, cataracts, cardiovascular disease, and other chronic diseases.
Also known as Green Ginger, this herb's use dates back to 1520 b.c. in ancient Egypt. It was highly prized as anti-parasitic. It is often used as a bitter digestive aid, with the powerful ability to fight off intestinal invaders such as pinworms and roundworms. It promotes the secretion of bile and other digestive juices. Bile being alkaline or basic in nature helps in the decomposition of breaking down of foods. In addition it helps neutralize excess acids thereby helping reduce prolonged acidity and acidosis
Capsicum helps aid circulation in cold extremities and is very useful in inflammations, stomach and bowel disorders, fevers and pleurisy. It also helps relieve the body of excessive mucous.
One of the best herbs for chronic constipation. It is not habit forming. It increases secretions of the liver (bile), is a good intestinal tonic and promotes peristaltic activity of the bowel. A good intestinal tonic and promotes peristaltic activity of the bowel.
Associated with killing and expelling parasites. Assists in the elimination of toxins.
A very useful herb for cleansing the system during fasting. Has a natural laxative effect that increases the intestinal peristaltic movements.
High in Vitamin C, Rosehips are used to strengthen circulation and act as a respiratory aid which activates membranous and urinary secretions.
Often referred to as the king of the vegetables, Garlic is nature's antibiotic. It has a rejuvenation effect on all body functions, stimulating the lymphatic system to throw off waste materials.
The type of bacteria normally found in a healthy intestinal tract. It helps maintain a balance of friendly bacteria that aids in digestion and promotes proper elimination of wastes. A healthy digestive tract also results in improved adsorption of nutrients.
An excellent blood cleanser that helps build blood hemoglobin levels. It strengthens the immune system. It assists in the oxygenation of the bloodstream. It is particularly important for people who live in cities and are exposed to smog and smoke (American Journal of Surgery). It breaks down poisonous carbon dioxide. It serves as an infection fighter and a natural deodorizer. Some say it is the richest land source of trace minerals.
As we look back through a half century of Medical History, we find that the so called killer diseases of the day were the result of infectious diseases such as diptheria, measles, polio, tuberculosis, pneumonia, hepatitis and many varieties of chronic sepsis.No longer are these the major health hazards.
The current major killer diseases are noninfectious rather than infectious, with coronary heart disease (CHD), diverticular disease of the colon (DD), large bowel cancer, lung tumors, gallstones, varicose veins, obesity and diabetes listed as today's most troubling health problems.
All of these diseases have been related to diets which are characteristic of economically developed countries. These countries have moved to a diet low in starch and fiber and high in fat, sugar and highly refined foods. As an example, in third world countries, some 70% of the body's energy is provided by starch carbohydrates, food retaining its natural complement of fiber. In these countries, fat provides only 10 -15% of the energy and protein and is mostly of vegetable origin.
In affluent societies, however, a little over 40% of the body's energy is derived from carbohydrates and approximately half of this is from sugar.
Fiber in the diet influences every stage of food consumption and digestion. The removal of fiber from food reduces the necessity for chewing and, thus, increases the rate of energy uptake. The sense of satiety relative to energy consumption is reduced and, along with it, the predisposition to over-nutrition with resultant obesity. The energy from fiber-rich foods is absorbed from the bowel more slowly. Some studies have cited this reduced rate of energy absorption as a protection against diabetes.
Fiber plays its greatest role and influence in the large bowel where it helps the onward propulsion and final elimination of bowel content. According to some medical experts, it provides protection against certain gastrointestinal diseases by its ability to increase the bulk and maintain the softness of colon content.
Depending on the source of fiber, this is achieved by holding water in the lumen of the gut or increasing the bacteria mass which constitutes a major portion of the stool bulk. The average stool output in third world countries is three times that of western affluent countries (300-500 grams as compared to 80 - 120 grams).
A deficiency of fiber in the diet is the major cause of constipation, increased stool weight and shortening of intestinal transit time. It has been shown that fiber alters fecal pH and influences the metabolism of both cholesterol and bile acids, which have been implemented in the cause of both gall stones and Coronary Heart Disease (CHD).
Some specific diseases related to dietary fiber deficiency include diseases attributed in part to reduced volume and increased viscosity of large bowel content.
Reduced volume & increased density of feces in the large bowel causes increased effort on the part of the muscles in the gut wall when propelling intestinal content forward. This pressure increase is largely responsible for protrusions forced through the wall of the gut's lining membrane (diverticula).
It is generally accepted that dietary factors, primarily excessive fat intake, are responsible for colorectal cancer. Fiber increases bulk. This dilutes carcinogens, no matter what their cause. Fiber reduces the duration of a toxin's contact with the bowel mucous by increasing its speed of onward movement through the gut. It binds various toxic substances, rendering them innocuous.
It appears, even though there are other possible factors, that the shearing force caused by the passage of hard fecal mass through the anal canal is the major cause of hemorrhoids.
Foods rich in fiber have a low energy-satiety rate. They require more chewing and, thus, prolong the time spent eating. Consequently, a sense of satiety is achieved before excessive energy consumption. This, alone, reduces the development of obesity.
Fiber in the diet reduces the energy consumed and slows digestion. It also increases the viscosity of the contents of the upper intestine. This reduces the rate of energy absorption, which, in turn, helps avoid an excessive demand for insulin output.The presence of fiber is considered a major protective factor against the development of diabetes.
Studies have confirmed that consuming certain fibers can assist in lowering of serum cholesterol levels within the body. This can lessen the likelihood of certain kinds of coronary heart disease for some people. Some researchers are studying the possibility that fiber can bind both fat and cholesterol in the foods we consume and make it less available to the body.
The very best of diets can be no better than the very worst if the body's sewage system, the colon, is clogged with a collection of waste and corruption.
