Detox: Internal Cleaning for the New Year…A New Beginning

With all the chemicals our body has to filter out, it’s really important to cleanse your body systems.  Use the following five Shaklee products to provide a thorough detoxification as part of your personal internal cleaning.

1) Alfalfa:

Alkalizes and detoxifies the body, especially your liver. Used for centuries to treat numerous conditions including kidney stones, fluid retention, arthritis, sinus problems, body odor, bladder infections, allergies, asthma, and hay fever. A wonder herb, often called the “King of All Plants”, alfalfa is one of the most complete and nutritionally rich foods available. Shaklee’s Alfalfa Complex is so much better because it is made from premium quality alfalfa, goes through a rigorous herbal evaluation process to ensure protection of the natural plant from first planting to final manufacturing.  Shaklee Alfalfa Complex is grown without pesticides, herbicides, or inorganic fertilizers and contains no fungicides, bactericides, synthetic hormones, growth regulators or chemicals. It goes beyond the certification of “organic”.  For more information on Shaklee Alfalfa Complex or to order it online go to: Shaklee Alfalfa Complex.

 

 

2) Herb-Lax:

Constipation and irregularity are a by-product of our modern diet. Both contribute to toxic build-up in the blood and lymphatic system. Shaklee’s Herb-Lax, originally formulated by Dr. Shaklee with an enhanced proprietary blend of nine herbs including senna leaf, is the perfect choice for colon and cleansing health. For occasional irregularity, Herb-Lax is very safe and gentle in cleansing the entire system of toxins without the harmful effects of chemical laxatives. It softens stools and makes them easier to eliminate. For more information or to order Shaklee’s Herb-Lax online go to: Shaklee Herb-Lax

 

3) Liver DTX:

Your skin is the largest external organ of the body and your liver is the largest internal organ. The liver helps your body detoxify, and performs hundreds of other important functions. Shaklee’s Liver DTX Complex supports liver function by providing antioxidant protection to cells and for liver cell repair by supporting protein synthesis. It helps maintain bile flow to eliminate compounds detoxified by the liver. Liver DTX also helps to combat allergies, bronchitis and free radical damage due to toxicity. It also helps with bad breath and body odor, increases immunity and helps lower cholesterol levels.  For more information or to order Shaklee’s DTX online go to: Liver DTX Complex

 

 

4) Optiflora:

There’s an old saying that goes, “death begins in the colon”. Keeping the colon clean helps to keep bad bacteria in check and allows good bacteria to flourish. Good bacteria must be in the colon to restore good health. Shaklee’s Optiflora System is arguably one of the biggest breakthroughs in supplementation in the last few years. This patented Daily Colon Care System is guaranteed to deliver 500 million live friendly bacteria to the intestine. The microflora in many other competitive products never make it that far. Using Optiflora daily is a good idea for everyone, but especially if you have digestive problems, heart burn, gas or bloating, constipation or diarrhea, have taken antibiotics, suffer from psoriasis, eczema or acne, have food allergies, are afflicted with colon or rectal cancer, prone to cold sores or have candida, yeast infections or autoimmune diseases.

5)  Fiber:  Let’s face it: We don’t always do what’s best for us. While the FDA recommends that we eat 25 grams of fiber a day for a 2,000 calorie diet, most Americans typically consume half of that amount. And yet the benefits are clear: a healthier colon as well as better digestion and regularity.* So how can you get the fiber you need on a “regular” basis? Each serving of Shaklee Fiber Plan Tablets provides 3 grams of dietary fiber with just 5 calories – making it simple to do what’s good for you.

Breakfast, a necessary “break” in the “fast”

Did your mom tell you to always eat your breakfast because it is the most important meal of the day? Well, she was right. Eating a healthy breakfast is important for both short term and long term mental and physical health. (more…)

Soy Protein

I hear some people say that soy is good for you, and some say that it is bad?  What is the story?
