Detoxification

Before detoxifying, it is important to consider what is being detoxed as well as the specific support necessary for success. For instance, mercury detoxification is very different from intestinal parasite cleansing, mold infection, chemical exposure, xenoestrogens, radiation and electromagnetic damage, and clogged channels due to poor digestion. The products on this page are mainly focused on the liver and blood. The most general formula is the Liver Tune Up and the most specific and advanced is Guduchi. It can be taken after the basic detoxification is complete.

Ayur Blood Elixir, 4 oz.

Blood cleansing is a very important part of health since the quality of the blood determines the ability to provide nutrients needed by every cell in the body. The main herb in the Ayurvedic pharmacopoeia used for cleansing the blood is manjistha, a deeply red root that has exquisite properties, enabling it to remove excess pitta without side effects. Since blood circulates throughout the body, the action is systemic and improvements in complexion, liver health, kidney function, and stamina should occur. To manjistha, Indian sarsaparilla has been added as an additional support for the lymphatic system, hibiscus for the heart, guduchi for detoxification, and ashwagandha for neuroregeneration and strength. This elixir is also rich in antioxidants, and being composed of some of the world"s best rasayana herbs, it aids regeneration and rejuvenation.

Alcohol: 38-40%

Contents: Proprietary blend of Manjistha Root, Rubia cordifolia, Anantamool Root, Hemidesmus indicus, Hibiscus Flower, Hibiscus sabdariffa, Guduchi Stem, Tinospora corifolia, Ashwagandha Root, Withania somnifera, and Jaggery in Distilled Water, Organic Alcohol, and Vegetable Glycerin.

Bhringaraj Extract, 2 oz.

In the Ayurvedic medical system, bhringaraj is regarded as a rasayana or longevity herb.

In Siddha Medicine, the leaves are used with ghee to disgorge phlegm lodged in the tongue and tonsils, one of the preparations for serious rejuvenation. The leaf extract is a powerful liver tonic but mild enough for children to take for biliousness associated with intestinal parasites. As those familiar with Ayurvedic medicine would expect, a liver herb will tend to have a positive influence on the eyes and skin as well as the liver and blood.
