Detoxification Begins in the Colon
Colon cleansing is a vital step in the detoxification process. The colon is one of the primary eliminative organs, designed to remove waste from the body. But when it does not function efficiently, some of the waste matter and toxins it contains can be reabsorbed into the body with a deleterious affect to health.
Take a look at some of NSP's most popular and effective colon-cleansing products.
CleanStart®-Clean up for the New Year
The CleanStart cleansing and detoxifying program provides a complete and balanced herbal cleanse to help protect the body from waste that can affect your health. CleanStart is a convenient, gentle and effective 14-day cleanse that strengthens the waste-filtering process, supports natural elimination and improves energy and a sense of well-being. Each program contains 28 drink packets and 28 capsule packets. These packets deliver 10 grams of fiber daily to absorb and remove waste. Fiber in the apple cinnamon flavor drink mix comes from psyllium hulls. The citrus flavor drink mix contains fiber from psyllium hulls and modified maltodextrin. Other important ingredients include aloe vera (soothes and protects bowel tissue), chlorophyll (prevents odor), bentonite (absorbs toxins) and special herbs (to flush the body of environmental toxins and enhance elimination). Each capsule packet contains two capsules of LBS II® (an herbal formula for the lower bowel) and one capsule of Enviro-Detox.
Tiao He® Cleanse-Cleansing Brings Balance and Energy
Tiao He Cleanse is a long-time cleansing favorite. This 10-day cleanse is a natural way to achieve balance (tiao) and energy (he) in the body. This program combines the knowledge of Chinese and Western herbalists and contains essential fibers to add bulk to the diet and improve elimination of toxic waste in the colon. It also contains nutritive herbs to support and build the digestive and intestinal systems and improve elimination.
Colon Cleansing - The Whole Story
Take a moment and think about something you probably don't think about too often: your colon. Consider the cumulative effects of the years (or decades) of donuts, potato chips, beef steaks and soft drinks. Sure, your digestive and intestinal systems take care of some of that accumulated junk. But, these systems were not made to run on refined flours and sugars.
As food passes through the digestive system, nutrients are extracted and absorbed. Then the waste material enters the colon. Colon contractions push the waste along while the body reabsorbs much of the water and mineral salts. The colon works most efficiently with diets full of whole grains and raw fruits and vegetables. The fiber from these diets creates mass that passes through the system more quickly and easily. Highly processed and refined foods that are common in today's diets lack fiber and pass through the system slowly, allowing toxins in the waste to be reabsorbed into the body. One common and easily recognizable effect is occasional constipation. Less obvious problems that may develop from an inefficient colon include lack of energy, respiratory issues, bad breath, non-cystic acne and dry skin.
Colon cleansing rids your body of waste buildup. It has been practiced for centuries. Nature's Sunshine offers convenient cleansing products that will deep-clean your intestinal system and restore it to top operating condition.
LBS II® - Healthy Bowel Support
LBS II is a great lower bowel stimulant and natural herbal laxative that can be used to augment any cleansing program. It is a key component of CleanStart. LBS II combines strong, purgative herbs with protective, gentle and soothing herbs to enhance waste elimination and encourage a clean colon. Contains cascara sagrada, buckthorn, ginger, licorice, Oregon grape, red clover, dog grass, turkey rhubarb and capsicum.
Para-Cleanse with Paw Paw - Clean out Foreign Invaders
Contrary to popular belief, parasites affect a large percentage of the U.S. population. In spite of government regulations, inspectors, drugs and general cleanliness practices, we can be affected through international travel, undercooked foods, contaminated water, day care centers, household pets and antibiotic use.
The 10-day Para-Cleanse program was formulated to cleanse the body and make it less hospitable to these foreign invaders. Each Para-Cleanse packet contains Paw Paw Cell-Reg, Chinese Herbal Pumpkin Combination, Caprylic Acid Combination and Elecampane Combination.
