The Importance of Internal Cleansing
for Digestive Health
By Garden of Life Health Writers
can eat an organic diet rich in raw foods and healthy proteins raised
in the purest manner. You can filter your water and even the air
circulating in your house. All this may reduce your exposure to
toxins, but can you ever escape them? Not 100% of the time, this is
why the effects of a toxic environment are felt in everyone’s body.
Nowhere is this more evident than in the digestive
system. Think about this. What happens to all the toxins that
accumulate in the body? Of course the body wants to eliminate them.
While the liver works overtime to remove toxins from the blood, the
digestive system is the primary means of removing toxins from the
blood, which are later passed out of the body.
As little as 100 years ago, when environmental
toxins were far less of a concern, our digestive systems functioned
much, much better. Food was broken down into its individual
life-giving nutrients, which were assimilated into the bloodstream and
carried to various parts of the body.
The introduction of pesticides and herbicides into
the foods we eat, the decreasing quality of our water, and modern
manufacturing methods that spew toxins into the air, however, have all
served to change the equation where digestive health is concerned.
Since digestion is vitally important to overall
health, it makes sense that anything that limits or hampers
digestion—such as toxins—also limits your ability to achieve
extraordinary health. Your body has amazing capabilities, but those
capabilities are finite. The harder your body works at one thing—like
detoxifying—the fewer resources it has to perform other vital
The answer is to eat more cleansing foods, just like
we did 100 years ago. Eating lots of organic raw whole foods like
fruits and vegetables is the place to start. Consuming fermented
foods, once a staple in our diets, also contribute to healthy
digestion, but a modern invention to our diets can also help.
Juicing—in particular, juicing young cereal grasses—is a great way to
get your nutrients and promote internal cleansing.
It also helps to be very intentional about
cleansing. Taking time to periodically engage in 10-day cleansing
regimens with a specific cleansing diet, aided by a cleansing
supplement, can ensure that you are doing everything possible to aid
digestion through healthy detoxification.
A good rule of thumb—and an easy way to remember to
cleanse—is to engage in a cleansing regimen with the change of the
seasons. That way, every winter, spring, summer and fall, you’re
giving your body what it needs to cleanse itself and to achieve great
digestion and extraordinary health.
How to Rid Toxins that Build Up in Your Body Over
Living in the modern world, you are constantly
exposed to a large number of non-nutrient non-functional chemical
toxins. Although normally present in small amounts, these chemicals
can and do accumulate in the body over a period of time.
Nearly all environmental chemicals and toxins find
their way into the body because they are in the air you breathe, the
water you drink, and the food you eat. Excess toxins can make you feel
lethargic, tired, run down and impact your health on many levels.
That’s why you need to cleanse regularly, which can reduce the toxic
load on your body.
Cleanse by Garden of Life represents a whole new way to
cleanse—one that’s easy to do, fits your schedule, and leaves you
feeling lighter on your feet. This 10-day cleanse system works in
harmony with your body to naturally release and remove toxins so
you’ll feel like a better you.
Perfect Cleanse is a complete 10-day cleanse program
that allows you to go about your normal daily routines. It does not
contain the harsh laxatives like some cleanses do, so you won’t live
in constant fear of cramping, bloating or having to find the nearest
The triple-action formula is used only at night so
that you don’t have to set your watch during the day to remind
yourself to take your supplements or be labeled at work as that crazy
health nut who is always on some kind of cleanse.
Perfect Cleanse was designed as a gentle cleansing program
that works in synergy with your body’s detoxification system.
Detoxification is a normal internal cleansing process that your body
uses to eliminate toxins such as chemical pollutants, as well as those
produced internally by the body.
The gentle cleansing process starts with
Perfect Cleanse Purify. Taken a half hour before dinner,
Purify contains botanicals that support the liver, thereby aiding in
the body’s cleansing function.
Perfect Cleanse Capture, taken a half hour after dinner,
contains fibers specifically chosen for their ability to capture
toxins and safely move them through the digestive system.
Perfect Cleanse Remove, taken at bedtime, helps with the
effective elimination of intestinal content the following morning.
Perhaps the most unique feature of Perfect Cleanse
is what it doesn’t have. In other cleanse products, certain fibers are
great at capturing toxins, but during digestion they can break down
and release those toxins back into the digestive system. The
patent-pending fiber used in Perfect Cleanse was specifically chosen
for its ability to resist breaking down. Since the organic fiber is
grown without chemical pesticides and herbicides, this also means you
won’t be introducing any new toxins into your body during the cleanse.
That may be the very definition of a Perfect Cleanse.
