Cleansing to Support Your Body

Eating a healthy diet, getting adequate sleep, managing stress, and exercising on a regular basis are all important factors to promote good health and keep our bodies running smoothly.

Our bodies have organs of elimination that manage toxins daily:

  • The Liver – changes or detoxifies harmful toxins into substances that can be safely eliminated from the body.
  • The Lungs – expel toxins through breathing (e.g., Carbon dioxide).
  • The Colon – eliminates toxins from the liver and waste that has accumulated in the intestines.
  • The Kidneys – receive water-soluble waste from the liver so that it can be further filtered and eliminated through the bladder.
  • The Skin – eliminates waste and toxins through sweat.
  • The Blood – flows through the vascular system and carries oxygen and nutrients to the body’s cells while removing harmful waste.
  • The Lymphatic System – eliminates poisons from cells through a network of vessels that extend throughout the body.

However, our modern world can put added stress on these organs due to the environment we live in, the food and beverages we consume, the products we use in our homes, and put on our bodies, and the waste byproducts that are naturally produced within our own digestive tracts.

For centuries, herbs have been used to naturally cleanse the body.1 There is archaeological evidence that early humans ate both raw and cooked plants and consumed herbs such as willow, St. John’s wort, yarrow, chamomile, bupleurum, and more.2 Chinese Herbal Medicine and Ayurvedic medicine use herbs as the basis of their treatments.

Don’t forget the Fibre!

Fibre and water are important to keep things moving through your digestive tract, which is especially important while cleansing. When you think of fibre, imagine a household sponge; think of the rough green part of the sponge as insoluble fibre, it SCRUBS the digestive tract clean. It does not dissolve in water or break down in the digestive system, it provides bulk to strengthen and tone the muscles of the bowel and helps to sweep the walls of the bowel clean. The yellow part of the sponge is soluble fibre, it ABSORBS. It breaks down in water and forms a gel to help trap waste for removal from the body.

FibreSMART® is a flax-based, dietary fibre supplement that can be added as a powder to water or juice to help support daily bowel health. It contains both soluble and insoluble fibre from flaxseed, acacia gum, and guar gum, and includes L-Glutamine, Marshmallow Root, Slippery Elm Bark, and Triphala to keep things running smoothly.

The human body wants to be in a state of balance; it wants to be healthy. Support it with the proper nutrients, water, exercise, supplements, rest, and play, and it will cleanse, reconstruct, and keep you safe.
