Intestinal Detox Formula #2
This formula contains the 3 most powerful and effective absorbers and neutralizers known, Clay, Charcoal and Pectin. This formula also contains 4 of the most soothing and demulcent herbs known for the intestinal mucosa (the lining of the colon). These herbs are Flax seed, Psyllium seed, Slippery Elm bark and Marshmallow root. Flax seed is an oily seed and these oils are protective to the colon lining. Rich in omega 3 and 6 Essential Fatty Acids and oils, these EFA s are highly soothing and anti- inflammatory to the intestinal wall and are a natural laxative. It also is a great softening agent and helps to liquefy old, hardened faecal matter for easy removal. Psyllium seed and husks are so effective, they are listed in almost every major medical text as a treatment for irritable bowel. Psyllium is highly anti- inflammatory and also normalizes bowel action. While it will ease diarrhoea and slow the passage time of faecal contents by bonding with the water, it also relieves constipation and speeds up the passage of faecal matter by increasing and bulking up the volume of the stool. Slippery Elm inner bark is highly mucilaginous. When mixed with liquid it produces a soothing and slippery paste that coats and protects the bowel, reduces inflammation and absorbs excess acid. Marshmallow root has been used for centuries in Traditional European Medicine to alleviate intestinal irritation. These 4 herbs working together create an incredible soothing, coating anti-inflammatory paste that clings to the lining of the colon. Finally, Peppermint leaf is added to this formula for a few reasons. First, it is highly anti-spasmodic to the entire digestive tract, reducing spasms and reducing the pain caused by them. Secondly, it is carminative in action, reducing, relieving and moving gas. Gas can be created when doing any deep bowel cleansing because intestinal and gastric fluids react with old, putrid faecal matter that is being lifted off the walls of the colon. Ingredients: Flax seed, Apple Fruit Pectin, 100% pure Activated and Ventilated Italian Green Clay, Psyllium seed and husk, Slippery Elm inner bark, Marshmallow root, Peppermint leaf and Activated Charcoal.
