Detox has become somewhat of a buzz word. In this hectic world of stress, pollution, food processing, genetically modified, fast food, microwavable meals and then more stress - our bodies have to deal with alot.
Even the way our food is manufactured, hidden sugars and fats, lots of chemicals, pesticides, herbisides, preservatives, e numbers - you get the picture.
So when people ask me, do I think people should do a Detox? My answer is HELL YES!!
We can look at juicing, eating organically where we can, forget the five a day and start looking at 25 a day. Drink 3-5 liters of water a day, cut down on red meats, glutan, breads and eat raw foods as often as we can, then that would be amazing.
Howewer - this is not always possible in our hectic modern lifestyles.
If we start thinking about the above introductions to our diet, then this would be massively beneficial. Many of us do require some help. This is where something like the Soul Nutrition Detox Complex can help us dramatically.
SO how can the Soul Nutrition Detox Product help us eliminate this army of toxins that have built up in our bodies over the years.
Pysllium husk is often referred to as a colon cleanser, and as a by-product of this – a natural weight loss tool. Once taken, it will bulk and form a mass in the colon, as this is transported through the intestinal tract taking waste with it – the husks will ‘scrub’ the intestines clean as they move along.
If taken before a meal, the husks will have time to expand giving a full feeling, helping to prevent overeating!
This can help those with bigger appetites to consume less, which can help to instill a healthier relationship with food in the long term. Consuming less food long term will inevitably help your stomach to shrink in size, therefore it will eventually become natural to require less food to reach satiety – in addition to added benefits of lower cholestrol and blood pressure!
A healthy bowel may not seem like a significant health priority to some, however – you’ll be surprised how many problems will disappear once you’ve sorted out your digestive problems! Nothing worse than going about your day feeling sluggish and uncomfortable
Unique, wild and natural by habitat, cranberries are rich in phyto-nutrients (naturally derived plant compounds), particularly proanthocyanidin antioxidants, which are essential for all-round wellness. The berries are indeed containing numerous chemical substances that may offer protection from tooth cavities, urinary tract infection, and inflammatory diseases.
Antioxidant compounds in cranberries such as oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC’s), anthocyanidin flavonoids, cyanidin, peonidin and quercetin may prevent cardiovascular disease by counteracting against cholesterol plaque formation in the heart and blood vessels. Further, these compounds help the human body lower LDL cholesterol levels and increase HDL-good cholesterol levels in the blood.Research studies show that cranberry juice consumption offers protection against gram-negative bacterial infections such as E.coli in the urinary system by inhibiting bacterial-attachment to the bladder and urethra.
Benefits of Inulin
Fiber is any type of carbohydrate the body can’t digest. It moves through the intestines intact and continues into the colon to serve as a food for the bacteria there. Fiber has no caloric value, but it’s essential to good health.
The fiber in inulin is soluble, which means it dissolves in water. It dissolves in the stomach and then forms a gelatinous substance that:
removes cholesterol as it passes through the digestive tract
It promotes digestive health.
Your gut contains between 15,000 and 36,000 species of bacteria. Only a small portion of the bacteria in the body has the potential to be harmful. Good bacteria provide many health benefits. Inulin stimulates these bacteria to grow.
Inulin aids digestion by increasing the number of good bacteria in the gut, particularly Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli. These bacteria help:
fend off unwanted pathogens (bad bacteria)
stimulate your immune system
Inulin also adds bulk to your stool and increases the frequency of your bowel movements. You may have more bowel movements, but inulin slows overall digestion. This enables your body to better absorb nutrients from the food you eat.
The potential benefits of Konjac soluble fiber are:
Regulation of lipid metabolism, reduce blood lipid and cholesterol.
Reduction of blood glucose.
Reducing risk of constipation and cancer of lower digestive tract.
Improvement of diet for diabetics.
Konjac fiber slows the absorption of sugar and cholesterol from the digestive tract, helping to control sugar levels in diabetics and reducing cholesterol levels.
Konjac may promote weight loss in obese adults, even in the absence of a calorie-restricted diet. When obese adults consumed Konjac fiber one hour before each meal for eight weeks, they lost an average of 5.5 pounds of body weight—with no other changes to their eating or exercise patterns.
Konjac creates a feeling of satiety or fullness through its water-binding effects. By creating a thick gel, Konjac delays gastric emptying and slows the release of sugar into the bloodstream, which helps to lower levels of insulin and blood glucose. Additionally, Konjac improves blood-lipid profiles and can lower systolic blood pressure. Because of these effects, Konja can greatly benefit individuals with metabolic syndrome or diabetes.
Konjac works in a similar way to other water-soluble fibers. It is able to attach itself to bile acids in the gastrointestinal system and move them out of the body in the form of excrement. This makes the body convert other cholesterol into bile acids, which can lower cholesterol and reduce the amount of other fats in the blood.

How Can Rhubarb Help You?
Fat Loss Factor
One of the medicinal benefits of the rhubarb roots is that on account of the presence of two major purgative constituents, this herb is known to be very beneficial in the treatment of diarrhea. The rhubarb root when consumed tends to increase the contractions of the colon and also helps in the cleansing of the colon. The purgative constituents of the Chinese rhubarb are also effective in getting rid of any bacteria that may be causing the diarrhea.
Another one of the benefits of the rhubarb root is that it is promotes weight loss on account of the effect it has on the digestive system as well as the colon. The rhubarb root is responsible for helping in processing the food that is consumed so that it is eliminated from the body in the proper manner. Additionally, the intestinal action of the rhubarb root also hampers the absorption of fat which would have otherwise accumulated in the body cells.
Licorice root has been used to soothe gastrointestinal problems. In cases of food poisoning, stomach ulcers, and heartburn, licorice root extract can speed repair of the stomach’s lining and restore balance. This is due to the anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties of glycyrrhizic acid. Studies claim that glycyrrhic acid can suppress the toxic bacteria H. pylori, and can even prevent it from growing in the gut. However, research also shows that patients suffering from peptic ulcer disease, heartburn, and gastritis have improved symptoms when taking DGL. DGL is the safer form of licorice and is able to be taken over the long term if needed.
