The Benefits of a Gentle Detox

If your body’s natural toxin processing is sluggish, optimal health may elude you.

Health benefits of gentle detoxing

Detoxification through bio-transformation is your liver’s job, and the kidneys work to eliminate the toxic by-products, which leave in sweat, breath, liquid and solid waste.

By cleansing, you can enhance your liver and kidney function and intestinal motility. Cleansing with herbs supports your ability to detoxify and eliminate environmental toxins.

Why Herbs Support Cleansing

Tasting some herbs prepared as tea can stimulate digestion and elimination. Herbs have an array of antioxidant polyphenols that improve the liver’s conjugation of toxins. The Institute for Functional Medicine asserts that “consuming more antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients [like polyphenols] may support the liver and promote efficient biotransformation and elimination.”

Flor•Essence® is a tea concentrate that works as a cellular cleanse for the whole body. It is a proven source of rare and important antioxidant polyphenols.

Flora Flor•Essence®

Flor•Essence®’s formula includes 8 great traditional medicinal herbs; burdock, sheep sorrel, slippery elm, Turkish rhubarb, blessed thistle, kelp, red clover, and watercress. They provide several unique phytochemicals known to activate different aspects of detoxification in the liver.

Consuming these herbs has been recommended by traditional healers for centuries, now we know that their ingredients promote cell health to enable better processing of an array of harmful compounds.

Can I protect myself from toxins naturally?

The best way to protect your cells from oxidative damage is to get plenty of fresh air and water daily. Getting optimal amounts of antioxidants can help the body to weather environmental stressors, and moving your body regularly, ideally until you are perspiring and breathing heavily, is important too.

Also, avoid the worst sources of exposure to phthalates, glyphosate and PCBs. Avoid drinking from disposable cups, and eat mostly organic fruits, legumes, seeds, grains, and vegetables. If meat is a key part of your meals, favour the smallest herbivores in the food web. Eliminate refined oils and those in plastic and use fewer and only unscented personal care and cleaning products.

Flor•Essence® is one of a kind

The herbs in Flor•Essence® are certified organic, extracted with pure water, and bottled in glass, to best support cleansing and detoxifying. They work synergistically to safely and effectively support the body’s organs to remove what can otherwise damage DNA and accelerate aging at the cellular level.

Flor•Essence® is tested for a wide variety of quality markers including heavy metals, pesticides, and active ingredients in the herbs.
