Did you know? The digestive and intestinal systems feed the entire body and must function properly to ensure the efficient absorption of nutrients. The colon, in particular, must function properly to carry waste materials from the body. The liver and kidneys are also important detoxifying organs. The liver aids in the digestive process by secreting bile that emulsifies fat, and also controls the metabolism of various nutrients and serves as a reservoir for many of these nutrients. The kidneys act as a filtration system during the production of urine. Cleansing and detoxification of the body promotes good health and general well-being and is considered an important first step in the healing process. Herbs can be used to support the cleansing and removal of waste through the intestines. In traditional systems of herbal medicine, it is believed that the combination of certain complementary herbs can have a synergistic effect on activating the body’s cleansing organs and promoting elimination of toxic build up.
