By combining two powerful ingredients, Cascara Sagrada and Senna, along with a host of supplemental natural ingredients, our formula helps promote two crucial body functions related to your colon.
One function is peristalsis, the action of the colon that contracts and pushes matter outward. We call this the "doer." The second function helps soften your stool, drawing moisture into the bowel to make it much easier for you to have a movement. As an extra benefit, it means that your movement will be gentler. We call this the "helper."
- Take one pill daily.
- Drink at least 8 glasses of water each day.
*What's the difference between My Gentle Detox and My Gentle Cleanse?
There are a few differences between the two detox formulas, but the main difference is the amount of Cascara Sagrada and Senna in each product. This means that My Gentle Detox (orange) has more emphasis on peristalsis--but still softens your stool, while My Gentle Cleanse (blue) has more emphasis on softening your stool--but still assists with peristalsis.
There is no hard-fast rule for which one will work better for you, but in general...
- If you often experience irregularity in or fluctuation in bowel movements, or bouts of casual constipation, you may want to try My Gentle Detox.
- If you often experience hard or more painful stools, acquainted with very infrequent bowel movements, you may want to try My Gentle Cleanse.
What are some great reasons to take a cleanse or detox supplement?
For one thing, we (most of us) generally don't eat the quantities of whole grains, fruits, and vegetables that our bodies were designed to run efficiently on. Neither do we get the level of physical activity or drink enough fluids (water, not coffee). A multitude of factors can affect your "daily business," such as travel, prescription medicines, stress, and more. By using a colon cleanse, you can help eliminate build-up that may harbor growths, parasites, and may contribute to overall bodily discomfort.

When should I take a pill?
Each of us has a unique body and will respond to the herbal supplement differently. Some may have better results taking it in the daytime, some afternoon, and some at night before sleep. Depending on your schedule (work, travel, at home, etc.), take a supplement may be more beneficial at one time than another.
For a start, try a pill mid-morning and adjust accordingly depending when your average movements begin and end. We recommend you take the pill 1-2 hours before a time when you have access to a bathroom (e.g. don't take one before a marathon, unless you are a very fast runner).
What if I'm really backed up? Should I take two?
Our recommended daily dosage is one pill; if, however, you have consistently taken one pill daily and you know your body well enough that you can take two pills in one day, you may at your discretion. If you choose to, however, we then recommend you take two pills in sporadic intervals--not daily.
