Archaeological evidence indicates that the use of medicinal plants dates back to 60,000 years ago. These ancient cultures utilized plants, herbs and spices to cleanse the body, fight off infection, treat diseases, and maintain overall health and longevity. Currently, at least 7,000 medical compounds described are derived from plants and of those used in modern medicine today, 80 percent are used for the same therapy as their traditional uses. With the help of nutritional supplements and the plant extracts found within CLEANSE, it is possible for anyone to easily harness the power of these nature made medicines. Each ingredient found within CLEANSE has undergone scientific analysis for it’s proposed use and effectiveness. Once you read the findings, you will never look at your produce…or your yard…the same again.
Ginger Root Extract 4:1
Ginger is a versatile herb whose stem is used widely in many products including beverages (Ginger beer and tea), sweets (Gingerbread, cookies), and as flavoring in main dishes (stir-fry). In studies, ginger and ginger root extract have been shown to be effective for treating nausea and preventing vomiting by aiding the digestive system. In addition to stimulating the gastrointestinal tract, it also has analgesic (pain relief) and antibacterial properties. These GI protective attributes are thought to be due to its role as a free radical scavenger, an antioxidant. Currently, it is used throughout the globe as a remedy for the common cold, coughing, nausea, menstrual pain, osteoarthritis, poor blood circulation, and motion and morning sickness.
Green Tea Extract
Extracted from the same leaves that produce green tea, black tea, and oolong tea, green tea extract has been shown to have antioxidant properties twice as great as Vitamins C and E. It also possesses anti-inflammatory properties, and anti-obesity effects. Catechins, a type of polyphenol, are the molecules present in green tea that are considered to be responsible for it’s benefits. Animal studies have revealed that catechins have anti-carcinogenic properties, leading to use of green tea extracts as alternative treatment in cancer patients for it’s possible effects.
Dandelion Root Extract 10:1
Although you likely associate Dandelion with nostalgic childhood memories of blowing their seeds into the wind only to now consider it a nuisance weed, Dandelion has managed to make itself present in supplementation and even human consumption. Dandelion possesses active phytochemicals that are used to increase urine production, act as a digestive stimulant treating upset stomach and constipation, and as an anti-inflammatory to improve swelling. You may look at this “weed” differently next time if you consider the potential for its uses.
Celery Seed Extract 4:1
The seeds of celery were described for their use as a pain reliever around AD 30, making this plants use much more than just a vehicle for peanut butter. Compounds within the seeds have been shown in studies to lower blood pressure by increasing blood circulation and urine output. In addition, it shows antibacterial effects against H. pylori, a bacterium causing gastritis, heartburn, and ulcers.
Fenugreek Extract (50% fiber)
In foods, Fenugreek is used because of its sweet flavor, is the main ingredient in imitation maple syrup, and is often used to mask the taste of medicines. Despite the natural sugary sweet flavor of the plant, its seeds have shown the ability to actually lower blood glucose levels in diabetics and to increase overall insulin sensitivity in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome. Although this is a result of activity of chemical compounds within the seeds, it is also due in part to their high fiber content, which interferes with sugar absorption and delays emptying of the stomach.
Milk Thistle (80% Sylmarin)
Sylmarin, the active compound in milk thistle extract, is a complex mixture of polyphenols and is used worldwide for the treatment of liver disorders, including cirrhosis and hepatitis. Extensive research has reported the beneficial role of this natural compound through its anti-oxidative effects, effects on inflammation and fibrosis, as well as protection against liver toxins including alcohol and medications. Components of Sylmarin have also been shown to have antifungal properties, potential anti-cancer effects, and is showing promise in the treatment of diabetes type 2 and skin cancer. Currently, milk thistle extract and its active ingredients are being utilized in clinical trials for the treatment and prevention of a variety of cancers. These promising results and potential benefits from the use of milk thistle substantiates its given nick names of “blessed mik” and “Virgin Mary milk.”
As a pharmaceutical drug used in the treatment of Tylenol overdose, cytic fibrosis, prevention of kidney damage from radiocontrast used in medical imaging, Influenza A virus, and as a treatment for a number of psychiatric disorders, N-Acetylcysteine is on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines. Derived from the amino acid L-cysteine, N-acetylcysteine is in turn a building block for glutathione, one of the body’s main antioxidants. In additional to the ability to reduce free radicals, it also possesses some anti-inflammatory effects.
Red Clover Extract (8% saponins)
Red clover contains “isoflavones” which are converted to “phytoestrogens” in the body, which are similar to the female hormone estrogen. In human studies, red clover extract has been shown to be effective in reducing menopausal hot flashes and in improving hair and skin appearance, libido, mood, sleep, and tiredness in postmenopausal women.
Garlic Extract 4:1
Garlic is an herb most commonly used as a flavoring for food however, it is also used to treat and prevent a wide range of conditions. Many studies have found that supplementation with garlic led to reduced atherosclerosis in humans and is known to cause vasodilation, lowering blood pressure. It also plays a role in reducing cholesterol and triglyceride levels, has been shown to prevent some complications of diabetes mellitus, and has antimicrobial activity.
