  Strengthen the Immune System. Cleansing impurities and flooding the body with high-grade nutrients strengthens the immune system. Some studies indicate that a healthy dose of high-grade, absorbable protein will strengthen your immune system by as much as 500%.

Love Your Liver. A clean, healthy liver supports metabolism and burns fat. A healthy liver promotes normal thyroid function and when the thyroid is healthy, your metabolism and energy levels escalate.

Support Healthy Brain Chemistry. When your body can effectively absorb and digest fats and protein, it converts these nutrients into healthy brain chemicals. When your brain chemistry is aligned, you will make healthier food selections.

Restore Antioxidants. Toxic compounds create "free radicals" that have the potential to damage cellular DNA - leading to cancer, weakened immune systems and accelerated aging. Antioxidants are substances that block free radical formation and destroy already formed free radicals.

Free yourself from stress. In herbal medicine, adaptogens are used to help the body "adapt" to imbalances that stress the body externally and internally. Replenishing the body's needed adaptogens assists in the body's own self-regulatory systems, thus reducing stress.

Maximize Absorption of Essential Nutrients. Maximizing absorption of nutrients helps fuel the body to support all major organ systems including the circulatory, musculoskeletal and neurological systems.

Aid Digestion. Herbs such as suma, peppermint, fennel seed and licorice have beeen used in many cultures to support and ais in digestion. Peppermint is a nontoxic digestive remedy that can provide relief from gas, bloating, nausea and gastric upset. Peppermint has a calming effect on the smooth muscle of the intestinal tract and is felt to promote the flow of bile from the gallbladder into the small bowel, aiding in the digestion of fats.

Rejuvenate Your Cells with Ionic Minerals. Minerals are the key to enzyme activation in our digestive tract. When minerals are present, our intestines allow for ultimate absorption of vitamins and essential nutrients. Our modern lifestyle has taken its toll on our digestive/ elimination organs. Ionic (charged) minerals are the most easily absorbed by our body.

Support Your Vital Organs. If your body is overwhelmed with impurities, gentle cleansing herbs and essential nutrients allow it to eliminate toxins through the liver (the major detoxifying organ of the body), colon, urinary tract, sweat glands, skin pores and the lymphatic system much more effectively.

Lose Weight and Feel Great. Studies have shown that fat cells provide the perfect environment for holding on to toxins. It is our
body's natural mechanism for protecting itself from dangerous, often deadly toxins. Cleansing supports the body's ability to flush fat and increase metabolism.

Eliminate Unhealthy Cravings. A healthy body will crave healthy things. An unhealthy body will crave unhealthy things. Cleansing and replenishing allows the internal body to create an environment that craves good, nutritious food.

Enhance Cellular Communication.
Our cells want two things: good nutrients and a clean environment in which to communicate. Cleansing provides our cells with both.

Build Muscle. Cleansing and then replenishing with pharmaceutical grade organic whey protein (the highest grade whey protein avail- able) provides the body with essential amino acids that are the building blocks for the development of lean, dense muscle.
