The Whole Body Cleanse by Enzymatic is a detox program designed for a 10 day detox. There are 3 parts to this kit.
Detox Activation, Acidophilus Pearls and Fiber Fusion all 3 of which are trademarked terms.
Let's look at each in turn…
Detox Activation (tablets) – this is the guts of the program really because it has the detox herbs that will do the heavy lifting of dealing with the toxins that are the target of the program.
The herbs used are standard detox and digestion herbs and are listed below. There are 2 groups of herbs used. One is a general digestive formula and the second is focussed on detox
Milk Thistle – major liver detox herb
Marshmallow – very effective and flexible herb used to soothe and heal the colon. Also used in cystitis.
Slippery Elm – major soothing herb used to help with many detoxes as it coats and soothe the colon helping the body detox and protecting the lining of the colon while doing so.
Peppermint – used to stimulate the flow of bile and so detox the liver and gall bladder. Major digestive herb.
Fennel – powerful detoxer and diuretic used to help heal arthritis and gout Also helps regulate the menstrual cycle and reduce period pains – perhaps by its ability to reduce fluid retention.
Fenugreek – used to lower fevers, treat gastric ulcers and gastritis. Said to be anti-diabetic and to reduce cholesterol. Very nourishing and calming.
burdock – traditionally used as a cleanser and blood purifier
boldo – has many uses from gallstone to giddiness, including constipation, cystitis and hepatitis
red clover – the skin is a major organ involved in detox and many skin conditions are treated with Red Clover
black radish excellent detoxer also used to help weight loss
dandelion major detox herb for liver
turmeric helps a particular detox pathway in the liver. It helps to protect the liver as it does its job of handling the toxins
ginger calms the digestion. Soothes nausea.
artichoke major detox herbs for the liver. Also acts as a diuretic
Looking at the herbs used we can see that they add up to a very credible detox formula.
Next we move on to the Acidophilus Pearls. It is very important when we detox and especially when we do a colon cleanse that we use a live culture of friendly bacteria.
Detox means that many toxins are going to be moved along the colon and this could cause some damage to the bacteria living there and they are essential for our health. The "pearls" which are capsules have 2 bacterial cultures which are Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium longum.
These cultures are in a capsule.
Lastly we get to the fibre component. First of all, fibre is not "just" fibre! Fibre is pretty complicated and does a whole host of things. The blend used is their own and is a mix of psyllium husk, glucomannan, oat bran, guar gum marshmallow and last but not least pectin from citrus fruit.
The instructions for taking the capsules come with the kit and need to be followed carefully. The kit is designed to be used as a 10 day program at present which may be too intense for some people. It may be better for some people to taker fewer capsules over, say, 2 weeks or more and do the detox slower.
My approach would be to advise users to take a week before they detox to clean up their diet. Drop sugar, fried foods and alcohol and get a little exercise and you will be better able to benefit from the cleanse. In particular I'd recommend taking plenty of water with the fibre! It will swell up and it is supposed to and if you take the fibre and not the water you will feel awful!
As a friend of mine says, "It all else fails, read the instructions."
The detox kit may be purchased direct from the manufactures but seems to be cheaper at Amazon and some other retailors.
Is this for you? The Whole body Cleanse by Enzymatic is a well designed formula which will help you detox but which may be a little too intense for some especially if their diet was poor.
