“Cleanse – Elimination Support” is a unique formula designed to support the removal of harmful gut microflora, toxins and waste from the intestinal tract, whilst concurrently introducing
During a “detox” there is an increase in toxins passing into the intestinal tract for eventual remove. It is therefore particularly important to support effective “elimination” during this time. We’ve created “Cleanse – Elimination Support” with this in mind, taking some of nature’s best cleansers and detoxifiers and put into one product.
1. Diatomaceous Earth (24%)
Is made from naturally occurring siliceous sedimentary mineral compound from microscopic skeletal remains of unicellular algae-like plants called diatoms. The diatomaceous earth contained in “Cleanse- Elimination Support” is Organic Food Grade quality that has been ground up into a powder which feels like talcum powder. It is approximately 3% magnesium, 88% silicon, 3% calcium, 3% sodium, 2% iron and many other trace minerals.
Diatomaceous Earth anecdotally has been attributed to a vast array of health benefits. For our purposes we were drawn to featuring diatomaceous earth in Cleanse due to it’s purported ability to “scrape” the intestinal walls cleanse and it’s ability to eliminate harmful microflora, including parasites.
We use Diatomaceous Earth sourced from “Fossil Power” here in Australia. For a more detailed overview of how Diatomaceous Earth works, please click here.
3. Activated Charcoal Powder (24%)
The activated charcoal powder used in “Cleanse – Elimination Support” is an ultra fine food grade powder made from virgin coconut shells.
The high temperature removes all the oxygen and activates it with gases like steam. What is produced is a highly adsorbent material with millions of tiny pores that capture, bind, and remove poisons, heavy metals, chemicals, and intestinal gases which have thousands of times more weight than the charcoal itself. Just two grams of activated charcoal powder has about the same surface area as a football field. The porous surface has a negative electric charge that attracts positively charged unwanted toxins and gas. For more information on how Activated Charcoal works, click here.
3. Organic Baobab Powder (24%)
Baobab powder is produced from fruit coming from the Baobab tree, native to South Africa.
Baobab fruit is extremely high in antioxidants, being a particularly rich source of vitamin C (gram for gram it has 6 x the amount of vitamin than an orange). Further, baobab’s antioxidant power is demonstrated by an ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) value twice that of pomegranate and cranberries and higher than goji berries.
Finally, baobab is also renowned as an excellent fiber and prebiotic source. One heaped teaspoon of baobab makes up some 33% of your daily recommended intake (RDI) of fiber. It also has a high level of the soluble fiber pectin which acts like a sponge in the blood soaking up excess fat and cholesterol . Fiber also improves the function of the colon and taken regularly often has a mild laxative effect.
4. Inulin Powder (24%)
Inulin is “resistant starch” which is getting a lot of attention these days as an excellent prebiotic. Resistant Starch means that this fiber is not able to be digested in the upper digestive tract. Instead it sweeps through until reaching the lower digestive tract (colon), where only here exists microflora which can feed on this starch. It turns out to the a resistant starch that beneficial microflora thrive on.
4. Aloe Vera Extract Powder (2%)
We use a highly concentrated extract form of Aloe Vera taken from the bitter sap of the leaf which is the most therapeutic.
Aloe improves food digestion and absorption, and enhances the presence of friendly bacterial by acting as a prebiotic. Aloe’s mannose polysaccharide is also effective at killing yeast (candida) and helps normalize pH levels.
For promoting detoxing, aloe vera is potent in activating the liver to produce more glutathione. Glutathione is the “master anti-oxidant” that is critical to the production of white blood cells. Aloe vera is also a “tonic adaptogen” that helps balance blood sugar and enhances the liver, digestive system and skin.
Finally, Aloe Vera powder has a mild laxative effect.
4. Organic Stevia Leaf Powder (2%)
Stevia is an all-natural sweetener with zero calories, zero carbohydrates and a zero glycaemic index. Research has shown that stevia does not affect blood glucose levels or interfere with insulin.
