Plexus Detox Products6:00 AM
I thought I would share a little bit about the Plexus products that I have used so far (I'm slowly getting to know the whole line of products). I'm going to start with the Detox line- ProBio 5 and Bio Cleanse. ProBio5 is quite possibly my favorite product so far!
This would be the best description of the two products- ProBio5 is the "toilet bowl scrubber" of the intestines and BioCleanse is the "flusher" (so to speak). There is a lot going on in the intestines and some of it is not good. Have you ever heard of leaky gut? I hadn't either.
So many health issues arise from the gut:
- 9 Signs You Have a Leaky Gut*
- 1. Digestive issues such as gas, bloating, diarrhea or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
- 2. Seasonal allergies or asthma.
- 3. Hormonal imbalances such as PMS or PCOS.
- 4. Diagnosis of an autoimmune disease such as rheumatoid arthritis, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, lupus, psoriasis, or celiac disease.
- 5. Diagnosis of chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia.
- 6. Mood and mind issues such as depression, anxiety, ADD or ADHD.
- 7. Skin issues such as acne, rosacea, or eczema.
- 8. Diagnosis of candida overgrowth.
- 9. Food allergies or food intolerances
Leaky gut is basically broken joints in the gut allowing undigested food, toxins, microbes and other nastiness to leak from intestines into your bloodstream. One of the common causes of leaky gut is candida. What is Candida? Candida (technically called Candida albicans) is a microorganism in the category of yeast, fungi, and mold. It is normal for it to live in small amounts in the digestive system and on other body surfaces. We all have Candida in our systems. It is helpful, and assists with digestion and nutrient absorption. It is usually kept in balance by “good” bacteria and digestive enzymes. However, under certain circumstances, it can overgrow and throw the balance in our bodies off. Then the Candida can invade the “good” bacteria and create a whole set of not-so-nice symptoms for us. It will invade into deeper tissues and organs where it doesn’t belong, such as the liver and kidneys, and become very abundant. Once it gets that far, it entrenches itself as fungi do (think of how hard it can be to get rid of athlete’s foot or a fungal toenail). The yeast produces certain chemicals and affects cell functions in ways that create many symptoms, some of which can become serious. The term “Candida” refers to the general overgrowth of various fungi and yeasts in the body, which flourish under certain circumstances to the point of causing illness. Candida has become a very common and often serious disease in our modern world.
-skin and nail issues such as eczema, psoriasis, hives, rashes, athlete’s foot
-digestive issues such as bloating, constipation, diarrhea
-irritability, mood swings, anxiety, depression
-recurrent vaginal infections or UTI
ProBio5 is a wonderful product that will keep your digestive system running smoothly. It can block the growth of harmful bacteria and boost the immune system, and leave you feeling your best!
BioCleanse is not a cleanse in the way we normally associate a cleanse to be. You don't drink some crazy concoction and starve to death to clean up the intestines. BioCleanse helps to oxygenate, energize and detoxify the body. Why do we need to oxygenate our bodies? We need oxygen for energy and optimal health. Oxygen rich blood cells help burn up some of the toxins in our bodies. We all need energy to function both physically and mentally. Taken together with ProBio5, BioCleanse will help flush the intestines and stomach of the toxins that have taken hold there. It also helps relieve constipation and irregularity. (remember I said BioCleanse was the "flusher").
I started taking ProBio5 in September and within two weeks notices that I wasn't craving sugar like I used to because I wasn't feeding the candida with junk food/sugar cravings. I added BioCleanse is October. I have also been sleeping better. I used to only take a probiotic if I was taking antibiotics but will continue to take ProBio5 for immune health. ProBio5 and BioCleanse are part of Triplex with Plexus Slim (which I'll cover later).
