Our bodies naturally detoxify everyday as part of a normal body process. Detoxification is one of the body’s most basic automatic functions of eliminating and neutralizing toxins through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph and skin.
Unfortunately in this day and age, with the pollution found in the air, water and food we eat, our bodies have a hard time keeping up. Our chemical loaded diet with too much animal protein, too much saturated and trans-fats, too much caffeine and alcohol radically changes our internal ecosystem.
Body systems and organs that were once capable of cleaning out unwanted substances are now completely over-loaded to the point where toxic material remains inside our tissues. Our bodies try to protect us from dangerous substances by setting it aside, surrounding it with mucous and fat so that it will not cause an imbalance or trigger an immune response (some people carry up to 7 extra pounds of mucous that harbours this waste).
Detoxification through special cleansing diets and colonics is the best way to assist your body’s natural self-cleaning system. It is especially important for immune-compromised diseases like cancer, arthritis, diabetes and chronic fatigue. However, even if your diet is good, a spring cleanse can revitalize your system and rid your body of harmful bacteria, viruses and parasites.
Suitable for all diets and those with the following conditions:
· Bad breath bowel congestion or stomach bloating
· Excessive sweating; body odour
· Suffering from kidney or liver toxicity
· Constant blocked nose and or running nose
· Wanting to lose body fat or wanting to gain muscle tone
· Arthritis & rheumatism
· Suffering from varicose veins, cellulite
· Suffering from high or low blood pressure
· Copious amounts of phlegm in the throat or nose in the morning
· Suffering from digestive problems, constipation or haemorrhoids
· Skin problems like age spots, rashes, pimples and acne

So why cleanse & detox?
Have you ever washed greasy dishes without hot water or dish soap? The dishes don't get clean, do they? When toxic metals and chemical food additives get inside your body, it takes a strong "cleanser" to scrub your body clean from the inside out. Toxins such as lead, mercury, and the side effects of aspartame's by-products of formic acid and formaldehyde, block nutrients from getting into normal body cells in the same fashion a lead shield blocks radiation during an x-ray. If toxins are present within your body, oxygen and the body's "food supply" cannot get inside your cells to supply needed nutrients, nor can the cells' waste products get out. Diseases, such as cancer, now have an environment in which to form. When these body toxins are removed, your body can then restore a healthy balance.
We need to clean and detoxify our body every day, to prevent food that is undigested and unabsorbed becoming 'toxic waste' in our body, to prevent this toxicity permeating into our intestinal walls and becoming re-absorbed into blood capillaries and reaching all parts of our bodies - thus increasing our risks of developing chronic illnesses. In addition, the World Health Organization has forecasted colon cancer to be the number one cancer killer disease in developed countries in recent years. This discomforting fact has led to many medical professionals to openly declare colon cleansing as a route to longevity.
Bloating with abdominal distension is a big health problem today. It is usually due to gas in the large intestine, produced by fermentation in the bowel. As we age, small pocket of tissue may balloon out from the bowel, giving rise to the condition called diverticulitis. Within these small pockets (diverticula) food may lodge, become stale, ferment, and produce large amount of gas. The intestine may end up coated with food remnants that form small centres of fermentation. It is quite common for the sufferer to wake in the morning with a flat stomach and for the abdomen to swell as the day progresses, so that by bedtime the swelling resembles a six-month pregnancy. During the night lack of food and sugar in the intestine allows fermentation to abate. After a breakfast that contains sugar and yeasts, the fermentation in the bowel flares up again.
Bloating can also be caused by less efficient digestion as we age, with the result that we become more and more bloated throughout the day with each successive meal. Rich fatty foods of any kind including alcohol and coffee test the aging gut more than others. As we get older the intestines no longer contract synchronously and smoothly so their activity becomes more and more disorderly, promoting fermentation and preventing gas from escaping.
Abnormal gut movements can cause pain and entrapment of wind so that it builds instead of moving on down. So we can become bloated, distended and uncomfortable with a sense of fullness, wind--even nausea.
Taking SOG-3 can help to relieve trapped wind, because aside from aiding peristalsis, SOG-3 contains friendly bacteria like lactobacillus to keep unfriendly fermentation bacteria under control. SOG-3 also contains lots of fruits, veggies, and plant fibres - these help prevent solids bulking up in the large intestine so you can move them on out.
Provides complete nutrition to strengthen the immune system
Each serving of SOG-3 has more calcium than milk, more potassium than bananas, more fibre than oatmeal, more friendly bacteria (probiotics) than yogurt, more protein than a half dozen egg whites, and more greens, cofactors, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other phytonutrients than a basket of fruits and vegetables, plus omega-3 essential fatty acids and selected herbs. SOG-3 is designed to be hypoallergenic and to have a low glycaemic response. It is a blend of organic and all natural foods that have been optimized with the most bio-available and usable nutrients and co-factors in existence. Including stabilized probiotics for healthy intestinal function, herbs to enhance major body systems, antioxidants to protect against free radical damage, vitamins and minerals to optimize the naturally occurring vitamin and mineral profile of food. With amino acids to optimize the naturally occurring amino acid profile of the plant proteins, and a custom enzyme complex to maximize the delivery of nutrients to the body.
