A Revolutionary Approach to Internal Cleansing
For years, internal cleansing has been the primary way for people to begin a natural health program. Unfortunately, most people are not aware of the unwanted effects that can accompany a cleansing program.
Tri-Cleanse is different, offering you a beneficial internal cleanser without the unpleasant gas and bloating that accompany many other products.
Tri-Cleanse combines a unique blend of fibers and herbs with the legendary Triphala compound of India. As the fibers swell and moisten, promoting complete and efficient cleansing, the Triphala compound gently tones, adding strength to the eliminative tract. Simultaneously, the digestive aids ginger, anise, and wild yam, support the "digestive fire", preventing the gas and bloating that often occur when bulking fibers are used alone.
The Complete Internal Cleanser
Dietary fiber supplements add extra bulk to the daily diet, ensuring that you receive adequate amounts for optimal elimination. Tri-Cleanse combines the husks of the most widely used bulking agent, psyllium, with three other fibers: flax seeds, guar gum, and oat bran.
Flax seeds are highly nutritious, and, like psyllium, become extremely demulcent (soothing and lubricating) when wet. Planetary uses flax seed that has been partially defatted to prevent rancidity. Guar gum and oat bran are nutritive fibers which soothe the digestive and eliminative systems.
Many internal cleansing products rely solely on bulking agents. Though beneficial for elimination, bulking agents alone may interfere with the digestive process. Digestion is considered to be a "hot" process, involving hydrochloric acid, and an active "breaking down" digestive medium. Bulking fibers are hydrophilic, meaning they become very wet and therefore dilute the gastric juices. This is why many people who undergo internal cleansing with bulking fibers complain of gas, indigestion and abdominal bloating.
A Balanced Combination
The care that went into the formulation of Tri-Cleanse reflects Planetary Herbals' philosophy of creating balanced combinations you can depend on. The cooling nature of its vital fibers is balanced by the warming carminative herbs ginger and anise. Bitter wild yam root enhances the assimilation of foods.
Triphala: The Essential Difference
Triphala is a uniquely balanced herb-food preparation that has literally centuries of traditional usage within the East Indian Ayurvedic tradition. An honored household supplement in India, Triphala consists of three fruits. Harada is the most widely used Ayurvedic herb, and, of all the herbs in Tri-Cleanse, the most cleansing. It simultaneously imparts powerful toning action. Amla or Indian Gooseberry is sour and astringent, promoting digestive secretions as it tones. It is a rich source of vitamin C, which nourishes to assist the tissue in regaining its strength and integrity. Additionally, its sweet and demulcent properties are pleasantly soothing. Behada, the most beneficial of the three fruits for ridding the eliminative tract of excessive mucus, also stimulates the production of digestive enzymes as it tones.
Triphala is unique because it supports the eliminative system by toning rather than by irritating. Many internal cleansers include dependency-forming ingredients like senna and buckthorn that irritate intestinal tissue in order to stimulate muscular contractions. Triphala instead tones the eliminative tract for beneficial cleansing.
Tri-Cleanse: Part of a Healthy Lifestyle
Regular and consistent use of Tri-Cleanse can be a significant part of your daily routine. A healthy lifestyle, which includes a whole foods diet, daily exercise, relaxed mealtimes, and careful chewing of food, can help support digestive and eliminative health.
