Well it’s that time of the year again to consider a body cleanse with a detox. The goal is to attain proper functioning and optimum health by detoxifying the body of toxins and harmful chemicals. If you have never attempted any detoxification programs it is important to check with family practitioner before you begin.
Detoxification should not be done if you are pregnant, breast-feeding or suffer from heart problems, diabetes or chronic conditions. Besides taking herbal supplements and starting any detox diets make sure to include digestive enzymes and probiotics. They help with digestion and maintain a healthy intestinal flora which aids in complete digestion and assimilation of nutrients.
Herbal remedies that can be considered to help detoxify the body and internal organs are: Milk Thistle; Aloe Vera; Burdock; Fennel; Artichok; and Dandelion. Combinations include: Ultra Fyber Cleanse by Canadian Bio.
