About the Blend 

Deep Cleanse is a detoxifying and cleansing blend to help us manage the chemicals and toxins that we are exposed to as part of our urban lifestyle. An accumulation of toxins from our daily consumption of processed food and interactions with environmental pollution increase our vulnerabilities to illnesses and diseases, and poses risks to our vital organs.

Our bodies are made to digest natural foods (with no added preservatives and fats) in around 4 hours of consumption and thereafter it will enter into detoxification and cleansing mode as part of the body’s metabolism process. The digestion of processed foods takes longer, up to double the time (8 hours). The toxic overload of modern life and an unhealthy diet often results in the body being unable to eliminate the toxins effectively and efficiently. Signs of an overloaded system experiencing a slower metabolism rate include symptoms such as weight gain, fluid retention and fatigue.

Burdock Root has been shown to act as a blood purifier as it helps remove heavy metal (e.g. mercury, lead, cadmium) toxins that is commonly found in our daily diet of grains, seafood, meat and vegetables. Burdock root also cultivates healthy bacteria growth in the gut to aid the digestion process. Red Dates further supports this detoxification process in both the liver and digestive tract. Rich in amino acids, red dates form the building blocks for essential proteins in the liver (main organ for detoxification); it is also rich in fibers which helps bulk up stool to facilitate bowel movements.

Following which, the bouquet of flowers in this blend, Apple Flower, Peach Flower and Rose will gently stimulate the gut to allow a good cleanse of the bowels. Rose in particular has also been known to help with improving one’s mood and relieve PMS symptoms.
