Importance of Effective Cleansing

Importance of Effective Cleansing

Saturday, April 2nd 2005

Cleansing is an important process for those who have digestive, bowel or liver problems. Keeping the detoxification pathways healthy and fully functioning aids the prevention of toxin build-up and the removal of accumulated toxins and waste products. This helps prevent antioxidant damage, disease, fatigue, digestive disturbances and other associated symptoms.

Nature's Way Thisilyn Daily Cleanse

Nature's Way Thisilyn Daily Cleanse is a complex daily cleansing formula for those who whish to help support their detoxification pathways and bowel function on a daily basis. It is recommended for use on its own or as a continuation product after the comprehensive Thisilyn Cleanse Tri-Phase 15 day program has been completed.

Included in the Thisilyn Daily Cleanse are six natural dietary fibers combined in an easily dispersed formula to capture toxins and other impurities throughout the intestine. Psyllium husks, Oat bran and Guar gum provide fiber to absorb toxins and give a gentle bulk laxative effect. Lignamax is a nutritionally rich natural flax lignan product from organic, non-GMO, kosher-certified flaxseeds to provide lignan, fiber, mucilage and omega-3. Lignans have antioxidant, anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. Grapefruit pectin may help maintain healthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) provides a powerful prebiotic boost to support the maintenance of healthy intestinal microflora.

Additional to the six fibers, Thisilyn Daily Cleanse contains the following herbs:

· Artichoke is both protective and restorative to liver tissues, promotes bile production, enhances excretion of cholesterol and enhances flushing of accumulated fluids.

· Turmeric is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory herb. It helps protect the liver and is excellent for those exposed to toxic chemicals. Turmeric helps to stabilize the body's microflora and has a significant effect on reducing serum triglyceride levels and helping prevent blood platelet aggregation.

· Dandelion root is a bitter digestive and bile stimulate, mild diuretic and mild laxative. Dandelion is used to assist with liver and kidney detoxification, disturbances in bile flow, loss of appetite, dyspepsia and to stimulate urine flow.

Thisilyn's patented processing significantly improves the digestive absorption of Milk thistle's bioflavonoid complex - silymarin. In fact, Thisilyn is twice as bioavailable as other Milk thistle brands - meaning twice as much silymarin actually reaches the liver. Silymarin promotes healthy liver function via three distinct actions on the liver:

1) Protection of hepatocellular membranes
2) Increased antioxidant activity
3) Regeneration of damaged/injured liver cells.

Thisilyn Digestive Cleanse - with Triphala

Nature's Way Digestive Cleanse is the same formula that is found in the Thisilyn Cleanse Tri-Phase 15 day program - Herbal Digestive Sweep.

Along with the bowl laxative effect of Cascara and the soothing, anti-griping actions of Peppermint, Ginger, Fennel and Marshmallow, this formula also contains Triphala, reported to be the most popular Ayurvedic herbal tonic formula in India.

Triphala is a Unique Detoxifier

Triphala, is the most popular Ayurvedic herbal formula of India, since it is an effective laxative which also supports the body's strength. The constitution of vegetarian Hindus cannot tolerate harsh laxatives anymore than vegetarians in other countries. Because of its high nutritional value, Triphala uniquely cleanses and detoxifies at the deepest organic levels without depleting the body's reserves. This makes it one of the most valuable herbal preparations in the world. Triphala combines both nutritional as well as blood and liver cleansing actions.

Because of its high nutritional content, Ayurvedic (Traditional Indian) doctors generally do not regard Triphala as a mere laxative. Some of the scientific research and practical experience of people using it down through the ages has demonstrated that Triphala is an effective blood purifier that stimulates bile secretion as it detoxifies the liver, helps digestion and assimilation, and significantly reduces serum cholesterol and lipid levels throughout the body. As a result, it is regarded as a kind of universal panacea.

Each of the three herbal fruits in Triphala, Harada, Amla and Bihara take care of the body by gently promoting internal cleansing while at the same time improving digestion and assimilation. The three fruits have been scientifically studied and confirm some of its known traditional benefits. These include the lowering of cholesterol, reducing high blood pressure, benefiting circulation, improving digestion and regulating elimination without causing any laxative dependency.

Harada, has a bitter flavour and possesses laxative, astringent, lubricant, antiparasitical, alternative, antispasmodic and nervine properties. It is therefore used to assist acute and chronic constipation, nervousness and anxiety.

Amla has a sour flavour. It is used to treat imbalances that include ulcers, inflammation of the stomach, intestines, constipation or diarrhea, liver congestion, skin eruptions, infections and burning feelings throughout the body.

Bihara is astringent, tonic, digestive and anti-spasmodic. Its primary flavour is astringent and the secondary is sweet, bitter and pungent. Specifically Bihara purifies and balances excess mucus, assists asthma, bronchial conditions and allergies.

Triphala is a completely balanced energetic formula. When taken regularly over a long period, it gently assists the elimination and purification from the tissues of the entire body.

The liver is also supported with the inclusion of Thisilyn Milk thistle extract. Thisilyn's patented processing significantly improves its absorption. Silymarin promotes healthy liver function via three distinct actions on the liver.

1) Protection of hepatocellular membranes
2) Increased antioxidant activity and
3) Regeneration of damaged/injured liver cells
