Choosing a healthier way of life, the "scents"able way.

Healthy Intestines

Leave a comment

We have been walking through a series discussing health and wellness that is focusing on cleansing the body. The first in the discussion was a gentle, total body cleanse called the 5-Day Nutritive Cleanse. From there we dove into the importance of a healthy colon. Today, we’ll move onto the intestines.

Function of the Small Intestine

The small intestine is part of the gastrointestinal tract following the stomach. It is where the vast majority of digestion takes place. There are three parts to the small intestine: duodenum, jejunum, and ileum.

In the duodenum fats are broken down by the bile secreted by the liver and gallbladder, carbohydrates are broken down by enzymes secreted by the pancreas and from the duodenum itself. Absorption into the blood stream of most of the nutrients takes place in the jejunum. The ileum finishes nutrient absorption and empties into the large intestine via the ileocecal valve. If the intestinal tract is not functioning properly, nutrients aren’t properly absorbed and delivered to the body amongst other things.

Intestinal Cleanse

Intestinal cleanses usually consist of fiber which helps to loosen and expel undigested and fermenting materials in the intestinal tract (this stuff, just sitting in our intestines, can prevent the body from absorbing necessary nutrients). Fiber moves along the intestinal tract like a brush scrubbing it clean but also as a sponge to absorb impurities and toxins as it moves it to the colon and out of the body. Let me share two companion supplements that work well together, ICP and Digest + Cleanse.

ICP™ helps keep your colon and intestinal tract clean with an advanced mix of fibers that scour out 3208residues. A healthy digestive system is important for the proper functioning of all other systems because it absorbs nutrients that are used throughout the body. ICP provides ingredients such as psyllium, oat bran, and flax and fennel seeds to form a combination of soluble and insoluble fibers. Enhanced with a special blend of essential oils, the fibers work to decrease the buildup of wastes, improve nutrient absorption, and help maintain a healthy heart.* ICP provides two grams of dietary fiber, one gram of soluble fiber, and one gram of insoluble fiber per serving.

 

3293Digest + Cleanse™ soothes gastrointestinal upset and supports healthy digestion.* Stress, overeating, and toxins can irritate the gastrointestinal system and cause cramps, gas, and nausea that interfere with the body’s natural digestive and detox functions. Supplementing with Digest + Cleanse will soothe the bowel, prevent gas, and stimulate stomach secretions, thus aiding digestion.* Digest + Cleanse is formulated with clinically proven and time-tested essential oils that work synergistically to help prevent occasional indigestion and abdominal pain.* Precision Delivery softgels release in the intestines for optimal absorption and targeted relief and to help prevent aftertaste.

Proprietary Digest + Cleanse; Blend (Peppermint (Mentha piperita)† leaf, Caraway (Carum carvi)† fruit, Lemon (Citrus limon)† peel, Ginger (Zingiber officinale)† root, Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare)† seed, Anise (Pimpinella anisum)† fruit), Coconut (Cocus nucifera) meat oil [virgin], coconut (Cocus nucifera) meat oil [fractionated], gelatin, glycerin, and aqueous coating solution (oleic acid, sodium alginate, medium-chain fatty acids, ethylcellulose, and stearic acid).
