Benefits of Cleanses
Toxic substances are everywhere, including in our bodies. They are formed through the normal chemical reactions of daily living. Healthy cleanses allow us to detox our bodies by eliminating the potentially harmful substances that can lead to bad health if allowed to accumulate. If done correctly, cleanses can increase energy levels, promote weight loss, reduce cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure and sharpen mental focus.
After only 3 days, SHREDDERS had this to say about the trial cleanse:
“4.6 yay!!! My husband lost 3! The cleanse was just what we needed to get us back on track after vacation! …the program was easy to follow, and take along when we went out. Thanks Dr. Ian Smith for the opportunity!!! ” – Helene
“I am thrilled to announce I lost 5.6 pounds. I think the program delivered just what it stated and more. I feel detoxed and I also feel I got a new Jumpstart on my journey” – Dorothy

Health Benefits of Purple Power Detox Smoothie
The Purple Power Detox Smoothie has everything and then some when it comes to a detox. The combination of the two most popular berries – strawberries and blueberries – are a flavorful start to this cleansing concoction. Blueberries are truly a detox super food. They are jam-packed with fiber, vitamin K, manganese, and vitamin C, and loaded with antioxidants, which give them a bluish color. These antioxidants are crucial for maintaining a healthy liver – the body’s major detox organ. Strawberries add significant doses of vitamin C, manganese, fiber, and folate, as well as more antioxidants to help fight diseases and keep the body primed to cleanse. Flaxseed oil magnifies the drink’s cleansing power by adding more fiber, which helps the gut eliminate excess toxins.
Want to blend the perfect smoothie?
Follow this simple formula:
1. Pour liquids in first for efficient blending.
2. Add your base. Your base may consist of soft and hard produce. You can then add fibrous foods such as nuts and dried fruits next and frozen fruits last.
3. Ice goes in last to help pull all the other ingredients down into the blades for even mixing.
