Nature's Sunshine Products, Body Detox (100 Capsules)
Used in Herbal Medicine to promote bowel movement by direct action on the large intestine.
Used as a stimulant laxative.
How It Works:
Cleansing and detoxification of the body promote good health and general wellbeing. Herbs can be used to support the cleansing and removal of waste through the intestines. In traditional systems of herbal medicine it is believed that the combination of certain complementary herbs can have a synergistic effect. Body Detox contains a combination of traditional herbs that support proper waste elimination. The digestive system feeds the entire body and must function properly to ensure the efficient elimination of toxins. The colon, in particular, must function properly to carry waste materials from the body. The liver and kidneys are also important detoxifying organs. The liver aids in the digestive process by secreting bile that emulsifies fat, and also controls the metabolism of various nutrients and serves as a reservoir for many of these nutrients. The kidneys act as a filtration system during the production of urine.
Dosage (adults):Take eight capsules at bedtime a few hours before or after taking other medications/health products. Allow at least 6-12 hours for laxative effect to occur. Take 2-3 times per week but if results are not observed, increase use to once daily.
