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.
Black Walnut Hulls (Juglans nigra)
A valuable cleansing herb in a short-term intensive detox. Black walnut hulls support bowel regularity and elimination of most common pathogens from the intestines and other tissues. A great tonic for the digestive tract, gallbladder and spleen.
Harakeke (Phormium tenax)
Our native flax root is called the “aloe vera of NZ” for its tonic effect on digestion and bowel regularity. Harakeke supports detoxification, elimination and intestinal health with astringent, alterative, laxative and calming actions.
Horopito (Pseudowintera colorata)
Our native pepper tree is a warming herb supporting a cold constitution and weak digestion. Horopito has scientifically proven antiseptic, antioxidant and carminative properties. It supports natural relief of temporary discomfort due to the flushing of toxins.
Kawakawa (Macropiper excelsum)
New Zealand’s most versatile native herb, its big heart-shaped leaves are a tonic for the stomach, liver, kidney, bladder and bowel – it supports the entire alimentary canal from ingestion to excretion. Kawakawa moderates the temporary toxic load in the bloodstream, so your detox experience feels easier. Great for skin, respiratory and cardiovascular health too.
Liquorice Root (Glycyrrhiza glabra)
Adding natural sweetness to the mix, this great liver protective and adrenal tonic supports sugar regulation and helps manage cravings. It supports healthy bile flow, blood detox, and bowel regularity while soothing GI tract membranes and supporting healthy gut flora to thrive in the colon.
Marshmallow (Althaea officinalis)
A soothing and protective mucilaginous herb, marshmallow has a cooling and moistening action on mucous membranes while strengthening bowel action. Tonic and nutritive properties support digestive health and effective bowel elimination of released toxins. A naturally soothing herb that supports trouble-free detox.
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.
Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis)
This is a nutrient-rich digestive tonic and calming, liver protective herb that supports healthy bile flow from the gallbladder. Rosemary helps clear the head and supports blood cleansing while detoxing. A key antioxidant, rosmarinic acid supports normal cell expression as well as gastrointestinal health.
Wormwood (Artemisia absinthum)
This is one of the best bitter tonics for nourishing a protective internal environment in the body against harmful organisms. Aptly named, wormwood’s stomach and liver-toning, bowel regularity and nervine actions make it a wonderful tonic for digestive health.
