Support Wellness Through Cleansing

Support Wellness Through Cleansing

If you’re looking for a way to stay healthy, herbal cleansing may help. While eating a healthy diet, getting adequate sleep, managing stress, and doing exercise is important to support overall health, herbal cleansing may be a great addition. It can easily fit into your daily routine, requires no fasting or giving up solid foods, and will support the body’s natural toxin and waste elimination process. Think of it as another way to help your body stay healthy, like eating right and exercising.

Our bodies have organs of elimination to manage toxins, but our modern world can put added stress on these organs from the environment, our food and water, and even within our own digestive tracts. Cleansing is a way to support these organs and has been used by cultures all over the world for centuries.[1] Herbal cleanses are used to improve digestive function, protect the liver, and gently cleanse the bowel. Formulas typically come in convenient vegetable capsules or tinctures and contain ingredients from natural sources. They can last for a week or as long as a month, depending on individual needs.

Here are some common signs that indicate you may need to cleanse:

  • Lethargy or fatigue
  • Indigestion
  • Gas or bloating
  • Constipation or irregularity
  • Yeast or urinary tract infections
  • Brain fog
  • Insomnia
  • Skin problems such as acne
  • Weight issues
  • Fluid retention
  • Frequent headaches

For more than two decades, Renew Life® has been a leader in herbal detoxification cleansing kits.

CleanseSMART® is a two-part, 30-day herbal cleansing program specifically formulated to cleanse the entire body, with added focus on the body’s two main detoxification pathways, the liver and the colon. Designed to reduce the toxic load in your body and relieve occasional constipation, CleanseSMART® contains silymarin, a mixture of flavonolignans isolated from the botanical seed milk thistle, an herbal ingredient traditionally used for liver protection.

Rapid Cleanse® is a three-part, 7-day full body cleanse designed to detoxify your body. It combines soluble fibre with herbs, minerals, and amino acids and is helpful if you are struggling to find the time for a longer program.

Sometimes people may only want to focus on the colon or need extra help to keep the bowels moving regularly.

CleanseMORE® is a colon support formula designed to help relieve occasional constipation and promote bowel movements. It contains Cape Aloe, Rhubarb and Triphala to help stimulate the smooth muscle contraction of the colon, magnesium oxide to draw water into the intestine and marshmallow root and slippery elm bark & bud to help soothe the intestinal tract. Note: do not take in conjunction with CleanseSMART® or Rapid Cleanse®.

Don’t forget the Fibre!

Fibre and water are important to keep things moving through your digestive tract which is especially important while cleansing. You can increase fibre intake by eating more fruits, non-starchy vegetables, whole grains, nuts and legumes or you can take a daily fibre supplement such as FibreSMART®. FibreSMART® is a flax based, dietary fibre supplement that can be added as a powder to water or juice to help support daily bowel health. With 5 grams of flax-based fibre per serving, it helps to keep the digestive tract running smoothly with naturally sourced ingredients such as Marshmallow Root and Slippery Elm Bark.

Renew Life® products are formulated with high-quality ingredients to help you achieve and maintain optimal health. They go the extra mile to ensure products are precisely delivered within the human body to optimize absorption and thus potency. Perhaps as equally important as the ingredients that are in the products are the ingredients that are not in the products. To keep you smiling, we are committed to providing supplements with no artificial colours, unnecessary preservatives, or unnecessary added ingredients of any kind.
