Flax Seed: Ground flax and whole flax may have the same nutritional content but your body is able to receive far more benefit from ground flax. This is why NutraCleanse uses Ground Flax Seed. The goodness in flax is wrapped up in a hard, shiny seed coat that’s hard to crack, even with careful chewing. No messy grinding for you as we take care of that and add these amazing ingredients as well.
Psyllium Husks: Psyllium is often prescribed as a laxative agent, according to the website MedlinePlus. It works by absorbing liquid in the digestive tract, forming a soft stool that is easy to pass. Each tablespoon of psyllium contains 9 g of fiber, which may aid in creating a sensation of fullness, and in treating diarrhea and high cholesterol. To prevent side effects, it is important to drink adequate liquid when using ground psyllium husks, as this allows the fiber to pass through your intestines.
Dandelion Root Powder: Dandelion has been used in many herbal remedies around the globe, the most outstanding of which are; as a liver cleanse and as blood purifier and diuretic. Dandelion root has shown to help the liver produce more bile. This is later sent to the gallbladder and assists in its contraction leading to the release of this stored bile which can help assimilate fats.
Burdock Root Powder: Burdock Root has vital ingredients such as calcium, arcigen, flavonoids, chlorogenic acid, potassium, and a host of other elements that can be helpful to the body. It is very low in calories and is a good source of non-starch polysaccharides: inulin, glucoside-lappin, mucilage, etc., These help act as a laxative. Inulin acts as prebiotic and helps reduce blood-sugar level, weight and cholesterol levels in the blood.
Fenugreek Seed Powder: Fenugreek has a very interesting history and its uses are varied. Most outstanding is it’s tendency to stabilize blood sugar and lower cholesterol levels.
“All disease begins in the colon.” Hippocrates
Constipation is a serious health problem affecting over half of all North Americans.
Optimally, it is healthiest to have 2-3 bowel movements daily. Failure to eliminate waste from the body on a daily basis causes a host of problems. It slows down the rate at which wastes move through the colon, leading to toxins being absorbed into the body. This “auto-intoxication” can, over a period of time, cause auto-immune disorders as well as problems such as obesity, gas, bloating, diverticulitis, headaches, depression, even colon cancer.
Causes of constipation
The number one cause of constipation is a lack of adequate intake of dietary fibre on a daily basis. Dietary fibre is generally obtained from plant foods, and consists of the portion of the plant which is generally not digestible. For optimum colon health, a lifelong daily intake of 25-30 grams (about an ounce) of fibre is required. The average diet provides UNDER HALF OF THIS AMOUNT!
Insufficient water intake is also a contributing factor. It is important to drink at least 3 glasses of water a day in addition to liquids such as coffee, tea, milk etc……….
Finally, lubrication of the colon (also known as the large intestine) is essential for regularity. A daily intake of 1 tbsp. of flax, borage, olive oil, or fish oil contributes to proper elimination of waste.
Laxatives alone are not the answer
Neither pharmaceutical nor herbal laxatives are a long-term solution to constipation. Why? Because these types of products mask rather than correct the real problem, which is lack of daily fibre. They are often habit-forming and do not restore the colon’s natural function.
