Detox-N-Cleanse is a 100% vegan Food supplement. Detox-N-Cleanse is a synergistic blend of foods and food extracts intended to help support healthy colon, urinary, metal, and other detoxification. Pollution can be a serious issue , so many naturally-minded individuals are justifiably concerned about detoxification.
The outside air is polluted, the indoor air is polluted, water is polluted, and the industrialized food supply is polluted with toxins. There are vehicle exhausts, industrial gases, industrial chemicals, chlorinated-fluoridated-plasticized tap water, molds, pesticides, herbicides, preservatives, radiation, colorings, perfumes, colognes, medications, printer/copier dusts, paints, carpet out-gassing, cleaning supplies, and a host of other pollutants. Even toys are still found containing toxic chemicals (and even those that have supposedly “safe” materials, like plastic, can still outgas).
Detoxification from toxins makes a great deal of sense in this chemically-altered modern world.
“The etiology of many neurodegenerative diseases has been only partly attributed to acquired traits, suggesting environmental factors may also contribute. Metal dyshomeostasis causes or has been implicated in many neurodegenerative diseases” . Some believe that heavy metals also predispose people to candidiasis/systemic mycoses and/or intestinal issues [3-4].
Acerola Cherry is one of the most vitamin C dense Foods . Not only does it have free radical scavenging abilities, it also has been shown to increase the antioxidant abilities of some other foods . “Acerola…contains bioflavonoids” , anthocynins, and quercitin . One study concluded that vitamin C “supplementation provides a protective effect against exercise-induced airway narrowing in asthmatic subjects” . Vitamin C has been used to help detoxify from aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury, nickel, and more . Acerola cherries also contain soluble and insoluble fiber, and such fibers are often part of successful colon cleanses.
Apple Pectin has been shown to support and improve colon health [10-13], and it also provides fiber . Apple pectin exerts “a scavenger effect in the intestinal digestion and portal circulation system as an anti-inflammatory food” . Apple pectin has been successfully given as a radioprotection agent to reduce radiation levels in those affected by Chernobyl [14-15]. It has long been used for those with dyspepsia and other digestive complaints .
Bioflavonoids are found in acerola cherry, cilantro, collinsonia, garlic, wheat grass, and other plants. Bioflavonoids, such as Quercitin dihydrate have long been used for toxicities. Even the PDR admits that quercitin may “have benefit in some allergic conditions, in conditions characterized by capillary fragility, in chronic prostates and in some cancers…Quercetin is one of several flavonoids that have effects on mast cells and basophils…it might be useful in some allergies, such as hay fever. Quercetin can help prevent the release of histamine and other mediators of allergies, possibly stabilize cell membranes so that they are less reactive to allergens” . “The major active biological constituents in Citrus herbs are flavonoids, especially hesperidin, naringin and alkaloids, mainly synephrine, with beneficial medical effects on human health” . Quercetin is often advised for those with asthma, allergic rhinitis, or hay fever . Bioflavonoids are also sometimes simply called flavonoids. Citrus bioflavonoids have been found to have anti-allergic effects and may be useful to improve symptoms associated with seasonal allergic rhinitis .
Chlorella is a special type of algae. Chlorella is often used for heavy metal and other forms of detoxification. It has the ability to absorb mercury, cadmium, arsenic and other heavy metals . The PDR states, “Chlorella…contains chlorophyll, car otenoids, such as astaxanthin, canthaxanthin, flavoxanthin, loraxanthin, neoxanthin, and violaxanthin. Chlorella also contains the xantho phyll, echinenone…Chlorella has putative anticarinogenic, immunomodulatory, hypolipidemic, gastric mucosal-protective and detoxification activities…In rats, chlorella was found to promote the excretion of dioxin…Chlorella had demonstrated ability to protect against gamma-radiation, as well as a number of drugs and various toxic chemicals” . Live chlorella has been found to remove lead from waste water .
Chlorophyll is contained in chlorella, cilantro, and wheat grass. Chlorophyll has been used to help detoxify from fluoride and as well as toxic substances [5,9]. It “may ameliorate some drug side effects” . Chlorophyll is often a component of successful colon detox programs.
Cilantro Coriandrum sativum is also known as Chinese parsley. It has been found to accelerate the excretion of lead and mercury through urine . It has also been found to remove both inorganic and methyl forms of mercury . Another study concluded that cilantro “has suppressive activity on lead deposition, probably resulting from the chelation of lead by some substances contained in Chinese parsley” .
Collinsonia Root is also called stone root and has tonic effects, which may be due to its essential oil and rosmaric acid . It contains a relatively unique bioflavonoid 2,5-dihydroxy-dimethoxyflavone, along with the flavones “baicalein-6,7-dimethyl ether (2), norwogenin-7,8-dimethyl ether (3), and tectochrysin (5-hydroxy-7-methoxyflavone)” . It is most often used for stomach complaints, hemorrhoids, or constipation [28,29], while its tonic effects within the bowels help maintain a state of calm (and also helps the bowels function more naturally). It is “[o]f reputed value in Varicose Vein conditions and for Hemorrhoids” . It has long been used in combination with ox bile to help support bile flow and deal with indigestion . Collinsonia root “is used for calculi, kidney stones, urea (bladder semolina), bladder inflammation, dropsy and gastrointestinal disorders” .
Garlic has been used to help detoxify from aluminum, arsenic, beryllium, lead, mercury, and nickel . “Garlic is used internally as an adjuvant to dietetic measures for elevated lipid levels. The herb is also used for prevention of age-related vascular changes and arteriosclerosis”. “Garlic contains compounds that help prevent nitrites—common substances found in foods as well as a variety of every day pollutants—from transforming themselves into nitrosamines, harmful compounds that can trigger cancerous changes in the body” . Garlic has anti-oxidant effects which means it can reduce toxicity associated free-radical damage. “Garlic contains the trace elements germanium and selenium, which have been thought to play a role in improving host immunity and ‘normalizing’ the oxygen utilization in neoplastic cells” . Garlic compounds have been found to inhibit lipid peroxidation, which “is considered to be one of the main features of aging in liver cells” .
Methionine is an essential amino acid and a precursor to l-cysteine . “L-methionine may protect against the toxic effects of hepatoxins, such as acetaminophen” and “methotrexate” . Methionine is a powerful antioxidant…which inactivates free radicals…As levels of toxic substances in the body increases, the need for methionine increases” . Much of the methionine in the body is converted into S-adenosylmethlonine, which is an active agent for many enzymatic reactions. Various methionine-containing compounds have been used to help detoxify from aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, ethanol, lead, molybdenum, mercury, nickel, and thimerosal [9,33]. A study involving chickens revealed that the odor, hence contents, of fecal matter is influenced by methionine supplementation . It has been speculated that people with diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s would benefit from methionine-containing compounds .
Modified Citrus Pectin (from inner citrus peel) is one of the most effective known natural detoxifiers. It has been found to be effective for many heavy metals . A urinary output study found that it can reduce toxic metals like lead and cadmium in people with supposed “normal” levels of those toxins . Additionally, has reduced lead in children with toxic lead levels . It has been claimed that, “Even though modified citrus pectin is strong enough to soak up toxins and heavy metals in your system like a sponge, it is also gentle on your system. Not a single person in these human trials reported any side effects. Modified citrus pectin is one of the safer forms of toxin removal because it does NOT deplete essential minerals your body needs. So while it eliminates toxic metals and pesticides like lead, cadmium, and mercury, it doesn’t deplete your body of zinc, calcium, or magnesium” . Pectin has been used to help detoxify from mercury and nickel . “Heavy metals like mercury, lead, cadmium and arsenic have been implicated in a wide number of health problems, including arteriosclerosis, hypertension, multiple sclerosis, impaired immune function, and an overgrowth of Candida albicans. Research exists showing the effectiveness of pectin in chelating (binding to) heavy metals and removing them from the body” . It has been studied for prostate issues “for further chemopreventive and chemotherapeutic analysis in vivo”. Detox-N-Cleanse contains PectaSol® (which is a registered trademark of EcoNugenics, Inc.) as this particular version of modified citrus pectin has been perhaps the most extensively tested for efficacy in detoxification.
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) is the delivery form of l-cysteine , which is an amino acid. It is a reducing agent that has proven antioxidant activity for scavenging free radicals . “Cysteine helps detoxify harmful toxins and protect the body from radiation damage. It is one of the best free radical destroyers. N-acetylcysteine aids in preventing side effects from chemotherapy and radiation therapy” . NAC is sometimes used “for boosting intracellular glutathione levels”  and it more effective than even glutathione itself to do that . At high doses, it has been found to be an antidote for acetaminophen poisoning and Amanita phalloides intoxification” . Various cysteine-containing compounds have been used to help detoxify from aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury, and nickel [9,42,43]. NAC seems to be able to reduce nitrates and serum levels of the medication carbamazepine . NAC has “antioxidant properties and chelating ability” and a rat study found it had protective effects against lead toxicity for the kidneys . According to one study, “N-acetylcysteine prevents memory deficits, the decrease in acetylcholinesterase activity and oxidative stress in rats exposed to cadmium” .
Slippery Elm is an herb long used for successful colon cleansing. “The main focus of Slippery Elm is the GI Tract where it can provide nutrition, a soothing coat over stomach and intestinal ulcers, soothing the colon…and to absorb foul gases . “Slippery elm contains large amounts of mucilage, which will coat the surface of the mucous membranes or surface of wounds and sores when it comes in contact with water…Slippery elm has been successfully used as a demulcent and emollient” . “It has also been known to ‘draw out’ toxins, boils, splinters, and other irritants” . Historically, it has been used “in the treatment of gastritis and gastric or duodenal ulcers” . Some believe slippery elm is “effective for protection against stomach ulcers, colitis, diverticulitis, gut inflammation, and acidity. Slippery elm is also useful for diarrhea, constipation, hemorrhoids, irritable bowel syndrome, and to expel tapeworms” .
Wheat Grass Triticum aestivum is a highly akalizing Food . It has long been used to re-invigorate health, and for other complaints of fatigue . Wheat grass is rich in chlorophyll . Wheat grass has been used to help detoxify from fluoride and as well as other toxic substances [5,9]. “Wheat grass is used as a general health tonic and… a…beneficial role of wheat grass in ameliorating hyperlipidemia and the associated oxidative stress” . It may help with certain types of IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) [5,50].
CNN reported about a small American study recently found 232 unnatural chemicals in the umbilical cords of newborn human infants . We are living in an age where there are too many chemicals and other toxins in the environment.
Detox-N-Cleanse contains natural vitamin C from acerola cherries (and no isolated ascorbic acid), herbs, and other plant extracts that support healthy detoxification. It is the choice for natural health professionals interested in 100% Food detoxification.
