Toxins are in just about everything we come into contact with. They enter our body through the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, and even through our skin.
Our bodies haven’t adapted quickly enough to flush out the countless man-made chemicals, toxins, and pollutants that are now present in our everyday lives.
It’s a manifestation of a larger problem. The world we were designed to live in millions of years ago has changed.
Did you know that pesticides sprayed on fruits and vegetables today are the same family of pesticides used for nerve gas in WWII?
Getting rid of these toxins will help you live a healthier life. It will help support your immune system, clear your mind, balance your hormones, and much more. It will simply help you feel more energetic and healthy.
Toxins are everywhere in our bodies. And the best place to start getting rid of them is in your colon.
Because when your colon doesn’t work right, it can have a snowball effect on your entire body.
All of the food you eat eventually winds up in your colon. And what your body doesn’t use can remain as waste byproducts and toxins.
Our modern world can cause fecal waste to get backed up. Sometimes to the point of having 10 to 20 pounds or more of putrefied waste trapped in your colon.
This can cause you to feel bloated, constipated, fatigued, and just plain terrible.
The truth is having a toxic digestive system is one of the main reasons people are not as healthy as they could be.
When toxins overwhelm your large intestine, it goes into bunker-mode. It protects itself by producing extra mucous. This gunk sticks to the sludge produced by a low fiber diet creating a build-up that narrows the colon.
This build-up makes your colon work less efficiently and slows down the time it takes to rid your colon of fecal matter.
The good news is there are steps you can take to put your colon back in balance. Steps you can take to help maintain healthy bowel function and start feeling better.
One of the best ways to do this is with a colon cleanse.
A colon cleanse can reduce the level of toxins in your digestive system and help you maintain more regular and healthier bowel movements.
There are many natural ways to safely cleanse your colon. Here are three that I recommend:
Cascara Sagrada – This plant extract helps to stimulate the muscles of your colon to contract, helping to push waste out of your body. It also helps strengthen and tone your colon, bringing bowel function back to normal.
Slippery Elm Bark – This herb acts as an “internal soother.” It absorbs toxins which can cause intestinal imbalance. It helps stabilize gastritis, diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, and even hemorrhoids.
Natural Blood Pressure Miracle
Today, I’m going to tell you how you can lower your blood pressure – naturally. There’s a crunchy red root that works wonders with lowering bloodpressure. And here’s the kicker… no side effects.1
To put that last statement into context: Here are just some of the side effects of nitroglycerin used in may blood pressure tablets:
Nausea and vomiting
Rapid or slow heartbeat
You don’t have to worry about any of these with my natural solution.
I’m talking about beetroot.
Just a small amount of beetroot or beetroot juice can help reduce your blood pressure.
Here’s how it works.
When you eat it, the beetroot is mixed with your saliva and bacteria on your tongue. This combo turns into nitric oxide (NO2). It’s the chemical from the lining of your blood vessels that makes them expand.
When NO2 gets to your stomach, another reaction occurs, and the nitrate is recirculated throughout your body.
This recirculation is what causes your blood pressure to drop. You see the biggest drop 3-4 hours after eating beetroot. But the effects last for up to 24 hours. 2
When these naturally produced nitrates are circulated through your body, your blood vessels relax. This lets your blood flow easier and reduces strain on your heart.
The result? Lower blood pressure.
You can get the most out of beetroots by either chewing them raw or throwing them in your juicer.
Here’s a fresh juice recipe you can try:
Fresh Beetroot and Vegetable Juice:
2 raw organic carrots 3 organic celery sticks 1/2 an organic cucumber 1 organic beetroot
Roughly chop all the vegetables, put them in your juicer, and blend.
