Sheep Sorrel provides oxygen to tissue at the cellular level. It also provides strong immune support. Sheep Sorrel has a long history of traditional use as an astringent, diuretic and laxative.


Slippery Elm Bark
helps soothe the digestive tract because it contains large amounts of mucilage. This bark is especially noted for soothing inflammatory irritation.


Turkish Rhubarb Root
helps detoxify the bowel, cleanse the liver and fight abnormal cell division. Also helps to normalize bowel movements and is considered a safe and effective laxative.



Red Clover
Research shows that red clover helps to combat microbes that could cause problems. It is a blood purifier that facilitates the elimination of toxins and waste through the skin, kidneys and bowels.


Blessed Thistle
helps digestion by increasing the flow of gastric juices, thereby helping to relieve dyspepsia, indigestion and the headaches associated with liver congestion.


Kelp
contains an abundance of minerals. This marine plant is a great source of iodine, which helps regulate energy levels. The alginates found in kelp have many beneficial effects, the most important of which is gathering and removing heavy metals from the body.



Watercress
is a rich source of chlorophyll, vitamins A and C, and many minerals, including iodine. It has been used traditionally as a detoxicant and restorative.
