Spring Cleanse

We can hear the whispers of spring in the distance as winter comes to a close and the days are getting longer again. We’ve spent these colder months boosting our immune systems, building our resilience, and keeping warm. Adding products like Vitamineral Earth™ and MycoForce Immunity™ to herbal teas and warm superfood elixirs has been crucial to our foundation of health as we have been fighting off winter bugs and keeping ourselves nourished. We’ve also been supporting our immune systems with Truly Natural™ Vitamin C, Shilajit Supreme™, and Oxygen Extreme™. Now, with the whisper of spring in the air, we are excited to be gearing up for springtime cleansing!

Why cleanse? For starters, colon health is a priority if we are to thrive in this modern world. The colon (large intestine) is our body’s main channel of elimination for undigested food and metabolic wastes as well as any toxins we consume or are exposed to. Our liver dumps the toxins and waste products it has filtered from our blood into our bowels via the bile fluids. In addition, our lymphatic system (the primary system for waste removal from the cells in all our tissues) dumps metabolic wastes, foreign invaders neutralized by our immune system, and toxins into our colon in order to remove them from our body. It is imperative for our health that our colon is functioning optimally so as to be doing its job of eliminating all these substances from our body.
Unfortunately, life in the modern world is not always conducive to colon health. Many factors can negatively influence the health of our colon and produce constipation: consumption of refined carbohydrates and sugars, high fat/low fiber foods, chronic dehydration, stress, lack of exercise, and various over-the-counter and prescription drugs.

Only one bowel movement a day is an indication of fairly significant level of constipation. Ideally, we should have three significant bowel movements every day. Otherwise, we are eating more than we are eliminating and thus slowly accumulating uneliminated fecal material in our intestinal tract. As our colon becomes backed up and toxic, our entire body becomes toxic and suffers the consequences. Health begins in the colon. Change the health of your colon and you change your life.

We are proud to offer you a variety of hard-core, effective, whole food, vegan cleanse products to support you in cleansing and nurturing your body. The HealthForce SuperFoods™ cleanse family includes the following products: Intestinal Drawing Formula™, Intestinal Movement Formula™, SCRAM™, Liver Rescue™, Vitamineral Green™, and Vitamineral Earth™.

The HealthForce SuperFoods™ cleanse products are formulated to meet a variety of cleansing needs. Remember, substance is everything and not just about the products you choose. The substance of your life is everything you put into it. Commit to realizing your full potential! HealthForce SuperFoods™ cleanse products in conjunction with a whole food, organic, plant-based diet with emphasis on dark leafy greens and fresh, high-water-content vegetables and fruits will give you the foundation you need to live a full and healthy life. Try enhancing meals with fresh herbs and spices (cilantro, ginger, cayenne, cinnamon). Switch to a quality sea salt/crystal salt source. Prioritize self-care that includes quieting the mind, meditation, deep breathing, healthy sun exposure, fresh air (have you considered houseplants?), staying hydrated, exercise (try rebounding/qigong/yoga), dance, time in Nature, saunas/heat therapy, and restoring the microbiome (research making your own cultured foods!).

Intestinal Drawing Formula™

Intestinal Drawing Formula™ is the ultimate intestinal health support product. It nourishes, soothes, lubricates, and detoxifies the intestinal tract. Mucilaginous water-soluble fiber from slippery elm, nopal cactus, marshmallow root, flaxseeds, and kelp soften any impacted fecal matter in our intestinal tract. Oils in flaxseeds also help to soften and loosen any uneliminated material present. Bulking fibers (flax) and charcoal in Intestinal Drawing Formula™ sweep through our intestinal tract like a broom, helping to remove toxins and any old, uneliminated material which may be present. The mucilaginous fiber (from slippery elm bark, nopal cactus, marshmallow root, flaxseeds, kelp, and carob pod) and activated charcoal in this formula also draw in and absorb toxins in the intestinal tract, thereby assisting your body to eliminate and not reabsorb these poisons.

Intestinal Drawing Formula™ is also formulated to support liver function with the addition of plantain leaf to help cleanse the liver and nopal cactus, which contains antioxidant flavonoids that help neutralize free radicals before they overtax the liver.

When we detoxify and improve health in our intestinal tract, we affect all other areas and organs of our body in a positive way. Truly, intestinal detoxification must be at the forefront of any protocol for improved health.

Intestinal Drawing Formula™ will help the bowels move correctly. For some people, however, especially those with significant bowel restrictions/obstructions, the healthy bulking properties of Intestinal Drawing Formula™ can cause constipation. If more powerful bowel moving action is required, or you have a sluggish bowel, use with Intestinal Movement Formula™. These two products are synergistic in their functions and work together to provide comprehensive detoxification of the intestinal tract.

Intestinal Movement Formula™

Intestinal Movement Formula™ is an effective, gentle, balanced, non-habit-forming herbal laxative. This superior formulation is highly effective, yet gentle, and is designed to support maximum colon cleansing and proper bowel function with little or no discomfort. With herbal components like whole leaf aloe ferox and nopal cactus, this formula also supports digestion and blood sugar balance. Intestinal Movement Formula™ also contains a diverse array of vegan enzymes (protease, amylase, cellulase, lipase).

Your goal with Intestinal Movement Formula™ is to take enough product to stimulate 2-3 significant bowel movements a day. Do not take so much that you stimulate diarrhea.

Some people may find that they do not have a movement until day two, which is okay. Just continue to experiment until you find the appropriate dosage to produce 2-3 significant bowel movements per day.

When including Intestinal Movement Formula™ in a cleanse protocol, keep in mind that if you tend towards a sluggish bowel and therefore need a lot of Intestinal Movement Formula™ to have normal bowel function, you may need to purchase an extra bottle to complete your cleanse. You may also need to continue on the Intestinal Movement Formula™ after the cleanse is over to maintain proper bowel function (2-3 significant bowel movements per day). As you transition your diet to include more high fiber whole foods, and your system heals, you should be able to slowly back off from using this product and have proper bowel function on your own (additional or longer cleanses will help hasten this process).

Note: Intestinal Movement Formula™ is not intended for long-term continuous use.

SCRAM™

SCRAM™ uses therapeutically effective quantities of herbs to provide the ultimate defense against pathogenic organisms. SCRAM™ combines the time-honored cleansing power of cloves, black walnut hull, and wormwood to support healthy intestinal balance. A variety of pathogens can infect the intestinal tract, causing a wide range of symptoms, from fatigue and loss of appetite to severe bloating, cramps, and constipation. These may include parasites, fungi, and yeasts. SCRAM™ is designed to kill these harmful pathogens.

Extracts of milk thistle seed, high in antioxidants and valued for its anti-inflammatory properties, and chanca piedra, traditionally used to promote the liver’s normal function to purge harmful substances, are added to support the liver. These herbs taken together in a single formula can promote optimal support during cleansing. Available in VeganCaps™.

In addition to using SCRAM™ to support pathogen removal, it is important to adopt and/or maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle so these unhealthy invaders do not return. We recommend a whole food, vegan, high-fiber, organic, clean diet with emphasis on fresh, high-water-content foods; large amounts of fresh vegetable juices, quality exercise, adequate sunshine exposure, positive thinking, and all things healthful.

Liver Rescue™

Liver Rescue™ contains beneficial levels of the most powerful liver herbs known: milk thistle (Silybum marianum), dandelion root (Taraxacum officinale), chanca piedra (Phyllanthus niruri), and turmeric (Curcuma longa). The herbs in Liver Rescue™ work together synergistically to support liver function, produce bile flow, and support detoxification. These potent herbal extracts provide powerful direct antioxidant levels, plus they increase our liver’s ability to naturally produce the even more powerful metabolic antioxidant enzymes superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione peroxidase.
The liver performs over 500 known metabolic functions that keep your body in balance and is the largest solid organ in the body. A healthy liver function is crucial for overall health.

Did you know your liver’s functions include:

  • detoxification – removes harmful viruses, bacteria, yeasts, drugs, metabolic wastes, and environmental toxins
  • cholesterol production and control, including the conversion of cholesterol to bile acids
  • balances blood sugar by releasing glycogen when blood sugar is low
  • stores nutrients such as vitamins A, D, E, K, B12 and the minerals iron and copper
  • digestion and metabolism of the fats, protein, and carbohydrates from our diet
  • produces proteins crucial for tissue repair, immune function, and blood cells
  • breaks down and detoxifies excess and old hormones and neurotransmitters to maintain balance
  • produces crucial body hormones and enzymes
  • helps maintain healthy circulation and blood pressure

Why is Liver Rescue™ an important component of the HealthForce SuperFoods™ cleanse product family? Whenever our body is attempting to remove a lot of toxins, such as when we are doing a cleansing program or are simply exposed to a lot of environmental toxins, our liver needs to have efficient and balanced Phase I and Phase II detoxification systems in place or we may experience what is known as a “cleansing reaction.” In this unpleasant situation, our body begins to throw off toxins through other organs in order to get them out of our body ASAP, producing uncomfortable symptoms such as diarrhea, mucus discharge, rashes, fever, headaches, nausea, brain fog, or fatigue. Cleansing reactions are often a sign that our liver is not functioning optimally and needs support. The liver plays a central role in all metabolic processes in the body and also efficiently eliminates environmental toxins. When your liver is toxic and dysfunctional, your entire body suffers. Liver Rescue™ offers high therapeutic potency liver support herbs that work together to support liver function detoxification (both Phase I and II).
