575 mg per capsule – 90 vegetable capsules
GI Tract: DeTox-It regulates internal or external inflammatory conditions. Take it daily when traveling to foreign countries for anti-microbial protection. Cleansing for dermatological conditions.
A common condition seen in the clinic is symptoms of wetness and heat congesting in the lower burner. These symptoms can be very similar to Candida or other related fungal infections. Formulas that have been traditionally used to treat this pattern, such as the Decoction to Purge the Liver Fire with Gentiana – Long Dan Xie Gan Tang, often yield incomplete results and may even damage the Yin if taken too long. GI Tract: DeTox-It was developed to address these types of conditions using herbs that have been found to kill fungi, parasites, and a broad range of pathogens. It is also important to support the immune system that is usually over-burdened by a continuous battle with the Wet and Heat Evils which have congested in the lower burner.
GI Tract: DeTox-It includes these types of herbs in the formula as noted in the herb groupings:
Clear Heat Toxins:
Sophora Root (Ku Shen) is used in TCM formulas to treat dysentery, parasites, ringworm, and fungal skin conditions. It is a broad spectrum of anti-fungal and anti-infective. Its mild diuretic effect aids in eliminating Wetness and Heat. Sweet Wormwood, also known as Artemisia Annua, (Qing Huo) has been the center of medical studies showing an extremely effective treatment of malaria. It is also used traditionally to treat dysentery and other intestinal Wet Heat type conditions and parasitic infections. Mahonia (Oregon Grape Root) clears Wet Heat and acts as a broad-spectrum anti-infective. Black Walnut (husk) is used in almost all formulas to kill and purge intestinal parasites. It is also used as an anti-fungal both for internal and skin-related conditions. Cat’s Claw (Uncaria tomentosa) is often used as an aid and restorative for stomach and bowel disorders, including Crohn’s disease, leaky bowel, colitis, diverticulitis gastritis, ulcers, and intestinal flora imbalance. Reishi Mushroom (Ling Zhi) is used in this formula to strengthen the immune system, help protect the Liver organ, and detox a wide range of pathogens. Yellow Dock is considered to be a powerful blood and liver cleanser. It is used for a wide range of diseases of the blood and skin. Licorice Root (Gan Cao) helps with the general detoxing functions and supports the Spleen Qi.
Pau d’ Arcu (Tabebuia) is a traditional South American herb regarded highly for its anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-fungal, and immuno-stimulant actions. Nettle Leaf nourishes Yin and Blood and cleans toxins (through its mild diuretic actions). It is considered to be one of the finest blood-building herbs in Western Pharmacopoeia. (Cat’s Claw)
