Every body needs to cleanse its digestive tract and this combination of herbs is safe and soothing to use.
Dandelion root continues to be used by European herbalists to treat diabetes and liver diseases. They regard Dandelion as one of the best herbs for building up the blood and for helping with anemia. It has the ability to cleanse obstructions and stimulate the liver to detoxify poisons. Two tablespoons of Flaxseed provide 4 grams of fiber, which is important for keeping the gastrointestinal system healthy. Much of the fiber in flax is soluble fiber, which attracts water and forms a gel. Soluble fiber slows down the emptying of the stomach, making one feel full longer, and it helps stabilize blood sugar. Marshmallow is very soothing for any sore or inflamed part of the body. It is a mucilaginous calcium-rich herb used to soothe and heal mucous membranes such as the lungs, digestive tract and bowels. Triphala is made up of equal parts of three herbal fruits: Harada, Amla and Bihari. The first fruit promotes digestion and treats acute and chronic constipation. The second is believed to increase gastric emptying and possesses anti-microbial properties. The third is a source of protein, oils and linoleic acid, an omega-3 essential fatty acid. Licorice protects against chemical damage to the liver, cleans the liver, provides energy, sooths the intestinal tract, works as an adrenal agent, and is a mild laxative. Ginger strengthens the digestive system since a lack of proper digestion can cause a malfunction of the glands of the body.
