Health Benefits of NutraCleanse™ Ingredients

NutraCleanse™ is known for being a clean and effective product that boasts only 5 ingredients: flax seed, psyllium husk, burdock root powder, fenugreek seed powder, and dandelion root powder. Our customers know that NutraCleanse™ is simple, wholesome, and above all, healthy.

But why?

Here are the many health benefits of the 5 ingredients that make up NutraCleanse™:

Flax Seed

Flax is typically the best-known of the 5 ingredients, and people are correct to associate it with fibre and better bowel movements, but the health benefits go much further than that! Flax also has been proven to lower cholesterol[1], and slow the digestion of sugars.[2] It’s also high in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.[3]

In other words? It’s a GREAT food to incorporate in your everyday routine.

Psyllium Husk

Like flax seed, psyllium’s health benefits include being naturally very high in fibre, and it’s effective as a mild laxative.[4] It’s also heart-healthy, and can contribute to weight-loss.[5]

Burdock Root Powder

Burdock is an herb that is commonly used as a medicinal tea ingredient. Here’s a list of the health benefits that it’s typically known for, according to The University of Maryland Medical Center[6]:

  • Purifies blood to clear the bloodstream of toxins.
  • Used as a diuretic to help eliminate excess water by increasing urine output.
  • Can be used as a topical remedy for skin issues like acne, eczema, and psoriasis.

Fenugreek Seed Powder

According to Dr. Mercola, fenugreek seed powder can help lower cholesterol, slow the absorption of glucose in the intestines, prevent constipation, calm PMS and symptoms of menopause, and maintain brain health.[7]

Fun fact: fenugreek is also considered an aphrodisiac.[8]

Dandelion Root Powder

Teeming with vitamins and minerals, dandelion root is also used to treat constipation, liver problems, kidney disease, heartburn, and skin problems.[9]

Its health benefits also extend to helping boost the immune system.[10]

Bottom Line

Knowing exactly what fabulous benefits NutraCleanse™ possesses, why not try to incorporate it into your everyday diet? Food products like NutraCleanse™ are often so undervalued and overlooked, but sometimes it’s simple—and NutraCleanse™ is simply fabulous.

Is Dandelion Root Anti-Cancer?

We know that the ingredients we put into NutraCleanse™ is good stuff, but as it turns out, it’s really good stuff. Composed of flax seed, burdock root powder, fenugreek seed powder, psyllium husk, and dandelion root powder, our product has been praised by many for being comprised of ingredients that treat a variety of ailments, such as constipation and IBS (irritable bowel syndrome).

Now, it looks like one of the ingredients might be a cancer-killer.

The Research

Dr. Siyaram Pandey is a professor of chemistry and biochemistry at the University of Windsor, and in February 2015, CBC News reported that he was the principle research investigator in a clinical study that observed whether dandelion extract could kill such cancers as leukemia and lymphoma in humans.[i]

According to researchers at the Winsor Regional Cancer Centre, tests “showed that dandelion tea, containing dandelion root extract, killed cancer cells in a lab.”[ii]

The idea for this study was born years earlier, when, in Windsor, a terminally ill leukemia patient began to treat herself with dandelion root and had incredible success. Global News reported in 2012 that the patient was 3 years in remission and on a “steady diet of dandelion tea.”[iii]

The Suggestion

We’re not saying our product kills cancer, but we are saying that the ingredients that our product is created with are stellar for good health and overall maintenance. While other products may have a list of 40 ingredients, our product has only 5, including dandelion root.

Unwanted weed? Not anymore.
