Barleygrass (Hordeum vulgare)
Barleygrass is a gluten-free superfood rich in digestive enzymes, probiotics and prebiotic fibre, essential amino acids, dense concentrations of minerals, vitamins, and a powerful antioxidant (superoxide dismutase). Barley grass supports digestion and detox. It has an affinity with the blood, being rich in chlorophyll, the ‘blood of plants’.
Beetroot (Beta vulgaris)
Known for its affinity with liver and blood, beetroot gives strong support to detox activity via the stomach, liver and bile duct, supporting blood purification and bowel-regulating mechanisms in the body. Betaine in beetroot supports stomach acid production, normal cholesterol levels and a healthy liver.
Coriander leaf (Coriandrum sativum)
Heavy metal chelator
This culinary herb supports chelation and removal of numerous heavy metals from the body, including mercury, aluminium and lead. With strong antioxidant and antiseptic properties, coriander leaf (cilantro) is one of the best detox and digestive herbs available.
Fennel seed (Foeniculum vulgare)
Fennel supports fat metabolism in the liver and the flushing of pathogenic toxins via kidneys, with strong antioxidant protection against free radical damage. Aromatic oils support calming muscle relaxation and bowel tone if flatulence and bloating occur.
Ginger Root (Zingiber officinale)
This warming circulatory tonic herb supports fatty tissue detox, and is a catalyst for the action of other herbs. Ginger is gastro-protective and carminative for digestive ease and bowel regularity, and antioxidant-rich for cell protection from free radicals.
Lemon Peel (Citrus x limon)
High vitamin C benefits immune health, supporting lymph glands to detoxify. It supports alkalinity, liver detoxification pathways, healthy cholesterol and fat metabolism. Lemon peel is naturally fluid-balancing with prebiotic fibre for healthy bowel action. Pectin supports sugar metabolism for healthy weight management.
Peppermint (Mentha piperita)
Its carminative properties, similar to ginger and fennel, take the ‘gas’ out of the gastrointestinal tract. Peppermint supports stomach emptying and tones the colon while supporting the detox effect of each herb via capillary dilation. Helps minimise any unpleasant symptoms of detox.
Wheatgrass (Triticum aestivum)
A rich source of B vitamins, zinc, copper, iron and manganese, enzymes, antioxidants, chlorophyll and complex proteins, wheatgrass complements barleygrass as another gluten-free superfood supporting detoxification, blood cleansing and healthy digestive function.
