The health of your blood is vital for life and the maintenance of a strong immune system.
Many health conditions develop from an over-acid blood pH resulting from accumulated toxins in the blood. Most of these toxins are acids formed by the natural wastes of the body and the foods we eat. These acids are normally eliminated when the body's organs are functioning properly.*
Blood quality must be healthy for the lymphatic system to filter toxins out adequately. The acid and alkaline quality of the blood should always be balanced. The pH factor ranges from a scale of pH-1 to pH- 12. A pH of less then 7 is acid and more than 7 is alkaline. Healthy blood should be slightly alkaline, between a pH of 7.3 and 7.45.
When a poor diet consisting of excess sugar, white flour, fatty foods, caffeine, alcohol and chemical food additives and preservatives are consumed, the bloodstream can become congested with toxins, fat, cholesterol and mucus that accumulates in the organs. This may lead to further deterioration of the blood quality and negatively affect the lymphatic system.*
When a failure of the mechanisms responsible for maintaining a balance between acid and alkali takes place, an abnormal level of acidity in the blood causes a condition own as acidosis. Acidosis can create an unhealthy internal environment that leaves the body's health vulnerable.*
Blood Cleanse™ is a proprietary blend of herbal ingredients to help supply nutritional support to the blood and for healthy heart function.*
Burdock Root is an excellent herbal blood purifier that detoxifies the blood and lymphatic system.* It is high in iron, and can help build blood during times of low hemoglobin.* In the botanical classification of herbs, blood purifiers help remove toxins from the blood and can also remove excess moisture that provides an environment for pathogens to grow in. Blood purifiers stimulate the immune system to fight off pathogens. Burdock root promotes healthy kidney function by working through the kidneys to remove acids from the blood.* It is especially helpful with skin conditions, and supports liver and gallbladder function by stimulating bile secretion and digestive juices.*
Dandelion Root is an excellent blood purifier that neutralizes acids and has a strong alkalinizing effect on the body.* Dandelion is rich in minerals and potassium that are easy to assimilate. It has strong antioxidant activity, being high in Vitamins A and C, and supports liver and gall bladder function.* It stimulates the liver to promote detoxification of toxins.*
Echinacea is recognized as one of the most powerful blood and lymphatic cleansers in the botanical kingdom.* The root is used as a tonic and blood purifier that neutralizes acid conditions and aids in lymphatic stagnation.* The chemical compounds in Echinacea that are responsible for the immune enhancing activity are polysaccharides, fatty acids and glycosides.* Echinacea enhances T-cell activity and stimulates the production of white blood cells to promote strong immune systems.*
Red Clover Blossom is an excellent blood purifier that helps promote and boost the immune system.* It also has anti-inflammatory properties.* Red Clover contains compounds including genistein and daidzein. The tocopherol present in Red Clover is responsible for its antioxidant activity.*
Carotenoid Complex - Carotenoids are pigments synthesized by plants that give them their orange, yellow and red colors. Along with Vitamin A and C, beta-carotene is considered an important antioxidant in nutrition.* The upper intestinal tract is responsible for converting beta-carotene into vitamin A in the body, as it is needed. Antioxidants assist the body's immune system to quench free radicals before they damage healthy cells.* Free radicals are unstable molecules that circulate in the body and can be caused by exposure to food additives and chemical preservatives, rancid oils, processed foods, radiation, UV sunlight and environmental pollution. They are responsible for many degenerative health conditions. Recent research has revealed other carotenoid compounds, found in various vegetables and fruits, that can destroy free-radical causing agents.* For example, alpha-carotene may have 10 times more powerful antioxidant activity than beta-carotene and zeaxanthin may provide even stronger protection.* The potential health benefits of carotenoids show much promise in promoting healthy heart and circulatory systems, enhancing the immune system and in providing protection against age-related and eyesight conditions*
Chlorophyll is the pigment that makes plants green. Through photosynthesis, it absorbs sunlight energy and converts it into plant energy. When we consume Chlorophyll, it is transferred into our blood and cell tissue. Scientifically, its molecular structure closely resembles human hemoglobin, the pigment that makes our blood red. When taken internally, Chlorophyll can oxygenate human cells by helping to build red blood cells.* Chlorophyll neutralizes acids and toxins in the blood and helps eliminate them from the body.* Its detoxifying and immune enhancing qualities may be helpful for heavy metal build up and optimal health. Chlorophyll is rich in vitamin K. Vitamin K forms a compound in the body that inhibits the formation of calcium oxalate crystals which in turn promotes healthy kidneys*
Choline is a lipotropic that plays an important role in metabolizing lipids like cholesterol and fat.* Lipids are fats and fat-like substances that are essential to health and are found in every human cell. The primary function of lipotropics in the body is to regulate the build up of excess fat in the liver.* Choline helps eliminate toxins from the body by supporting liver function.* Choline combines with inositol, in the body to form lecithin. Lecithin breaks up cholesterol and moves it through the bloodstream. Choline is responsible for detoxifying the metabolic waste generated by the breakdown of proteins in the body.*
Folic Acid is part of the B complex family and works together with B12 in the breakdown of proteins in the body.* One of its most important roles in the human body is helping with the formation of red blood cells.* It also triggers the production of Hydrochloric Acid which can prevent intestinal problems.* Folic Acid supports liver function.*
Copper is present in every cell. It is a trace mineral necessary for the conversion of iron into hemoglobin.* It is essential for the utilization of vitamin C and the absorption of iron.* It is an important blood antioxidant that keeps cells healthy.*
Phosphorus plays a role in every metabolic reaction of the body because it is present in all of our cells. Phosphorus makes up a part of the molecular structure of phospholipids. Phospholipids are important constituents of cell membranes that are involved in fat metabolism as well as inhibiting the accumulation of too much acid in the blood.* For example, Lecithin is a phospholipid.
Vitamin B12 is an important nutrient for the nervous system and promotes energy levels in the body.* It plays a major role in the formation and regeneration of red blood cells.* B12 works with folic acid in the breakdown of proteins. It is helpful with assisting the body to absorb carotene.*
