Let’s take a look at what exactly is in each scoop!

flax

Flax Seed

NutraCleanse™ is made with ground flax; by grinding this tiny seed, it is easier for your body to digest and absorb all those nutrients. In addition to fiber and protein, flax seeds contain Omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for heart and brain health. Also packed into that little seed are lignans, a type of phytonutrient that helps lower cancer risk. Flax seed is also ideal because it contains a mix of both soluble and insoluble fiber, which keeps your digestive system running smoothly, lowers cholesterol, and helps keep you fuller longer. Furthermore, some studies have shown consuming flax to be helpful with hot flashes in postmenopausal women.

psyl

Psyllium Husk

Psyllium husk is a common fiber supplement, making it a great ingredient to up that fiber intake. This increased fiber helps with digestive health and is also helpful in lowering cholesterol to help maintain a healthy heart and prevent heart disease. While some forms of fiber can cause digestive issues if too much is introduced at once, psyllium husk is a bit gentler and has been shown to help with digestive issues like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

dandelion

Dandelion Root Powder

Though it’s been used for thousands of years, dandelion root is a relatively new health food in North America. It’s great for detoxifying the kidney and liver, improves digestion, and is full of cancer-fighting antioxidants. But, the nutrients don’t stop there! Dandelion root is also high in vitamins A, B, C, and D, as well as the minerals zinc, iron and potassium. Due to this vitamin and mineral content, dandelion is sometimes suggestion for treating anemia as well as mood disorders like depression.

burdock root

Burdock Root Powder

Burdock root comes from burdock, a popular vegetable in Asia. Burdock root has been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years for supporting lung and stomach health. It’s also great for the skin and hair, helping to ease conditions like eczema, acne, and dandruff. Burdock root is rich in antioxidants—containing even more than most fruits and vegetables—and has been shown to be helpful with detoxifying the blood and liver. Burdock root is also high in vitamin B6, a frequently suggested nutrient for tackling PMS symptoms.

fenugreek seed

Fenugreek Seed Powder

Fenugreek seed is another ingredient found in NutraCleanse™ that’s amazing for your digestion. It’s actually been shown to help slow down the digestion of carbohydrates, which means that sugar is released into your blood stream more slowly for sustained energy. Because of this, it’s a great supplement for those who are pre-diabetic or diabetic. Rich in fiber, fenugreek helps all aspects of your digestion, treating indigestion, constipation, and acid reflux.
