Death Begins in the Colon


“Death begins in the colon.” This is a famous quote by Dr. Bernard Jensen, who was a respected authority on the benefits of cleansing the body. He was a pioneer in the early 1900s and was well ahead of his time regarding digestive health and cleansing the body.

It does make you think when you hear such a respected authority state, “Death begins in the colon.” I know it made me think and as an executive in the world of health and fitness, I believed we should learn more about this.

With the help of our in-house nutritional expert, Dr. Phil Harvey, we set out to develop a product that would quickly eliminate excess fluids and waste trapped in your colon. Are you aware that your colon is about as long as you are tall? Also each foot can hold as much as 10 pounds of putrefied waste. That explains why our stomachs are able to distend out very dramatically.

Don’t Miss: 7 Foods That Help Detox Your Liver

weight loss, detox,Dr. Harvey has extensive research and knowledge regarding healthy herbs that will naturally aid in the elimination and cleansing of the digestive tract. We tasked ourselves with finding the most powerful herbs and natural nutrients that would give safe and effective results quickly.

Dr. Harvey teamed up with our product development group and we began to put together a powerful and effective cleansing product, called Cleanse & Lean. These ingredients stimulate bowel motility and loosen hardened stools promoting mass elimination and a clean, healthy colon. Here are some of the key ingredients we added to make sure we had a unique and powerful formula:

Cascara Segrada

Cascara Segrada stimulates peristalsis. Peristalsis is a medical term for a series of muscle relaxations and contractions that keep waste moving along through your intestines. Some people have naturally stronger muscles and don’t have a problem moving the waste through the intestines. Many others need a little help and Cascara Segrada fires this movement up.

Dandelion Leaf Powder

This powerful and natural herb aids in the detoxification of the liver while helping to eliminate excess water retention.

Slippery Elm Bark Powder

This is an amazing natural lubricant. It only makes sense that a natural lubricant would keep everything moving along, while softening and cleaning the intestinal walls.

Aloe Vera Leaf Powder

This amazing plant extract acts as a powerful natural laxative and assists in overall digestion and elimination.


This is only 4 of the 10 amazing natural herbs and nutrients making up this powerful and unique formula. We all want to make sure our bodies are eliminating waste efficiently and regularly. No one really likes to talk about poop, but let’s all face it…we all do it and it’s a very important function in our health and daily lives.

The jury is out on exactly how many times a day we need to, let’s say, “Go.” Some experts say two times is optimal but others say one is fine as well. But all agree we should GO daily for optimal health.

Dr. Bernard Jensen spent 50 years studying the benefits of optimal digestion and elimination. He was way ahead of his time. He has presented convincing data from literally thousands of successes with his patients as to the importance of intestinal health!
