  • 90 pounds of Cabbage

  • 75 pounds of Strawberries
  • 26 pounds of Broccoli
  • 12 pounds of Wheat

Cleansing Fiber

Flax is a safe and natural way to help regulate your system. Studies have shown that the average person contains 5 to 25 pounds of waste build up in their colon. This "build up" leads to bacteria and toxins that contaminate your system causing common sicknesses and diseases. Approximately 90% of all disease and discomfort is related to an unclean colon. Internal cleansing is essential for a healthy, active lifestyle, especially in this fast paced, fast food society that we now live in. By not eating healthy foods and not exercising on a regular basis, your system has a hard time digesting foods properly. This results in waste being stored in the colon. This buildup causes bacteria and toxins which spread throughout the body resulting in sickness and even death.
If the digestive system is not working properly, it also makes it very hard to lose weight because your body is not breaking down and excreting the foods that you eat. For a system to be regular, it should produce 2-3 bowel movements a day shortly after each meal. Internal cleansing is more important than external cleansing. Unless people are willing to fast for many days by living on water alone, they will need an alternative way to cleanse.
