It has been proven beyond doubt that environmental toxins have been invading our bodies, causing oxidative damage to cellular lipids, proteins and DNA with health shattering consequences.
The body’s detoxifying organs, the liver, kidneys and digestive tract are inherently programmed to cleanse the body but nonetheless are dependent on each other. Any impairment in one of these organs may cause disorders in the others. Keeping the liver, kidneys and digestive tract clean and functional is imperative to sustaining a viable defense against environmental and metabolic toxins for retaining a prime state of health.
LIVAFECT - LIVER CLEANSING FORMULA
The liver is the body’s main detoxifying organ, inherently capable of neutralizing and eliminating metabolic waste products and harmful chemical residues. However, when the amount of toxins surpasses the liver’s threshold capacity, the overwhelmed liver loses its capacity to detoxify and function. The consequences: increased toxicity, disorders in blood sugar, blood lipids and blood pressure, a compromised immune system and a total metabolic decline.
PROVEN LIVER SUPPORTIVE INGREDIENTS
|Chicorium (seeds) – chicorium (chicory) has a long history of herbal use and is especially notable for its tonic effect upon the liver and digestive tract. Chicory is a great natural source of liver supportive, essential saccarides.|
|Bacopa (leaves) – known as a “brain herb”, Bacopa has been used traditionally to boost neuro-functionality. Studies in humans indicate that Bacopa extract has anti-anxiety, cognitive enhancing effects.

KidnX - KIDNEY CLEANSING FORMULA
The kidneys’ primary function is to maintain the body’s fluid homeostasis by regulating mineral concentrations and by filtering and neutralizing toxins and metabolites. In conjunction with the liver, the kidneys are important regulators of blood pressure, glucose metabolism and red blood cells formation.
Accumulated toxicity, a high intake of refined salt (sodium chloride), inadequate water intake, and excessively high protein intake are some of the most notable causative factors to kidney disorders with symptoms including formation of kidney stones, urinary tract infections, water retention, salt intolerance and elevated blood pressure.
PROVEN EFFECTIVE KIDNEY SUPPORTIVE INGREDIENTS
|Triplala – an Ayurvedic herbal remedy made from three equal parts of fruit extracts (embilica, terminalia bellirica and terminalia chebula) with potential cleansing, digestive healing and anti-cancerous properties. Triphala has been gaining the reputation as a natural aid for body detoxification, removal of undesirable fat and prevention of cancer – proving to induce cellular toxicity in tumors but spared normal cells. By virtue of its blood purifying, glycemic balancing and metabolic protective properties, Triphala can be useful as a natural kidneys’ cleansing and metabolic supportive aid.|
|Boerhaavia (punarnava) – punarnava means body rejuvenation – Boerhaavia has been traditionally used in Indian herbal medicine to rejuvenate the urinary system, relieve edema and kidney disorders.

Tribulus terrestris – native to Europe, southern Asia and northern Australia, tribulus has long been used as a tonic and an aphrodisiac in Ayurvedic medicine. It has been claimed that besides its potent tonic, metabolic rejuvenating properties, tribulus has testosterone boosting properties, apparently by stimulating gonadotropin-releasing hormones (GnRH). The active ingredient in tribulus terrestris is believed to be protodioscin, a natural plant steroid, cousin to DHEA. In animal studies, tribulus has shown to enhance sexual activity more than synthetic testosterone. Tribulus is most reputable for its body tonic properties, which together with its attributed androgenic strengthening qualities, makes it a great natural kidney supportive herb as well as an overall metabolic restoring aid.

DigestX - A SYNBIOTIC, CLEANSING FORMULA
Probiotics are friendly gut bacteria that play a critical role in the digestion and absorption of food and nutrients. Friendly gut bacteria are vital to protection against pathogenic microorganisms and are key contributing factors to the sustainability of a healthy immune system
MAX SYNBIOTIC DEFENSE AGAINST DISEASE-CAUSING BACTERIA, YEAST AND FUNGI
Probiotics bacterial cultures are needed to assist the body’s naturally occurring gut flora, which can be swiftly disrupted and destroyed by antibiotic drugs, common pollutants in food and water, excessive sugar intake and harmful bacteria. A high ratio of harmful bacteria over beneficial gut bacteria can be detrimental to the person’s health and well being.
Symptoms of imbalanced gut flora include yeast infection, constipation, skin infections, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcers, stomach inflammation, tooth decay, gum disease, vaginal infections, food allergies, lactose intolerance, glucose intolerance, fatigue, undesirable weight gain and a weakened immune system.
DigestX contains a potent blend of thirteen live probiotics strains, including the most beneficial Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium bifidus with pre-biotic food (from chicory, oat grass and barley grass), combined with gut cleansing herbs and chlorophyll to yield maximum synbiotic defense against harmful disease-causing bacteria, yeast, and fungi, while inducing a natural cleansing and healing impact on the digestive tract and the whole body.
WHY DIGESTX’S SYNBIOTIC FORMULA IS SUPERIOR TO OTHER SUPPLEMENTS
Probiotics are mainly active in the small intestines. Their beneficial impact is limited and questionable without pre-biotic food (nutrients that help increase probiotics population). Cutting through the misconceptions, pseudo-science and false claims often provided by supplements manufacturers, the truth is that there is no published evidence that probiotics supplements are capable to fully restore the body’s natural flora, when these have been killed off. In fact, the evidence shows that probiotics bacterial levels in feces disappear within days when supplementation ceases.
Proper incorporation of probiotics with pre-biotics yields a synergistic synbiotic effect, promoting a spontaneous increase in the body’s natural flora population with a superior, long lasting impact on the body. Compared to the impact of probiotics alone, which can’t survive long without pre-biotic foods and are also limited to the small intestine mainly, a synbiotic formula such as DigestX can potentially induce a long lasting effect, benefiting both the upper and the lower part of the digestive tract.
|Improve lactose tolerance – certain lactobacillus probiotics stains can potentially help lactose intolerance, individuals digest lactose by converting the milk-sugar lactose into lactic acid, allowing a greater tolerance to dairy.|
|Protecting against colon cancer – some probiotics strains have demonstrated anti-mutagenic effects, apparently due to their ability to bind to carcinogenic substances, such as those formed in cooked meat. Animal studies confirmed that probiotics can protect against colon cancer.|
|Anti-inflammatory – probiotics foods and supplements have shown to modulate inflammatory responses such as inflammatory bowel syndrome, by manipulating cytokine (hormone-like substances) function.|
|Improving mineral absorption – lactic acid producing probiotics are believed to improve trace minerals absorption, particularly in individuals on a high phytate vegetarian diet.|
|Fight harmful bacteria – evidence shows that probiotics therapies help prevent bacterial and yeast infections as well as related diseases.|
|Relief from irritable bowel syndrome and colitis – probiotics strains have shown to improve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and benefit treatments for ulcerative colitis.|
|Improved muscle protein utilization – probiotics have shown to enhance protein digestion and increase the rate of protein utilization in the muscle.|
