It contains traditionally used herbs to support the natural cleansing action of five organs to aid in the elimination of waste from your body and help restore an efficient flow in the digestive system.
Features and benefits
- Simple holistic two-week detoxification program
- Helps “kick-start” your healthy diet and lifestyle management program
- Easy-to-take capsules, three times a day for your convenience
Blackmores KickStart Detox contains herbs that have been used in traditional Western herbal medicine for their actions on the 5 organs of elimination - kidney, liver, gallbladder, bowels and skin.
- Globe artichoke may help stimulate an increase in bile flow. This action may help support detoxification through the elimination of waste from the digestive tract.
- Bitter orange is regarded as one of the best herbs to use in traditional Chinese medicine for what can be described as 'stagnation', 'sluggishness' or 'stuffiness' of the abdominal area.
- Burdock is used in Western herbal medicine as a diuretic and alterative to help remove accumulated waste products via the kidneys and skin.
A toxin is a substance that can have minimal to serious detrimental effects on the body. The body processes toxins in two main ways:
1. Neutralisation - occurs via complex enzymatic processes in the liver
2. Excretion and elimination - occurs mainly via the liver & kidneys
The liver is the most important organ of detoxification. It produces and secretes bile that helps to bind fat-soluble toxins for excretion. If detoxification pathways are overwhelmed, inhibited or fail, toxins may accumulate in body tissues, most frequently in fat tissue.
This highlights the importance of nutritional or herbal support for detoxification processes for any person undergoing rapid weight loss - as fat tissues are likely to release stored toxins into the circulation.
