Supplements for the Karma Kleanse
The following supplements, with brief descriptions, will be used in the 30 day cleanse
Psyllium Husk – a bulk-forming laxative, is a natural element that is rich in soluble fiber. A widely used colon cleanser, psylluim husks are purported to help rid the colon of excess waste that can build up and cause health complications.
Bentonite Clay – a unique clay due to its ability to produce an “electrical charge” when hydrated. Upon contact with fluid, its electrical components change, giving it the ability to absorb toxins. Bentonite is known for its ability to absorb and remove toxins, heavy metals, impurities, and chemicals.
Fenugreek Seed – contains mucilage, a demulcent (an agent that forms a soothing film over mucus membranes) that can relieve pain and inflammation in the intestines and stomach. Fenugreek also stimulates enzymes that break down glucose molecules, making it an effective sugar regulator as well.
Green Smoothie Powder – a high potency superfood supplement containing a wealth of ingredients. Usually containing many green veggies such as kale, broccoli and spinach.This popular green superfood drink powder includes enzymes and probiotics.
Lecithin Granules – has many health benefits. It adds creaminess to recipes and is a source of choline, which helps dissolve fat and cholesterol and can help regulate your kidney, liver and gallbladder function. Lecithin is an essential nutrient that is required by your body, but not made in adequate amounts.
Flax Seed Oil – comes from the flax plant, or Linum usitatissimum, and is sometimes known as linseed oil. Besides supplying a rich source of omega fatty acids, flaxseed oil contains alpha-linolenic acid, or ALA, a precursor to biological omega-3 fatty acid. The University of Maryland Medical Center reports that essential fatty acids, such as omega-3, may help reduce inflammation and work toward preventing heart disease and arthritis.
Digestive Enzymes – supplements play an important role in enabling the digestive system and colon to function more effectively. Digestive enzymes are produced naturally in the human body and can also be found in raw fruits and vegetables. However, based on the typical American diet, the average person doesn’t produce or consume enough digestive enzymes.
