Why Do We Need Bentonite + Herbal Detox?
Toxins are everywhere in the world. They are in the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat. Recent tests have shown that toxic chemicals are even present in mothers' milk, typically considered one of the purest forms of nutrition! Because many harmful substances are fat-soluble, they can stay in our bodies for years, causing all sorts of subtle and not-so-subtle imbalances.
A Natural Defense
Our bodies are equipped with a detoxification system to keep us healthy. The skin, kidneys, and lungs all play a part, but the main organ of detoxification in the body is the liver. In fact, up to 25 percent of our blood is located in the liver at any given time, where it is being filtered and cleaned.
The liver uses a two-phase detoxification process. During Phase I, some chemicals are eliminated, while others are converted to intermediate forms. During Phase II, these intermediate forms are made water-soluble and then eliminated.
Help for an Overburdened Liver
Unfortunately, in our toxic world, sometimes the job of detoxification is more than the liver can handle. That's why Yerba Prima has formulated Bentonite + Herbal Detox.
Featuring the highest-quality bentonite clay plus a powerful blend of detoxifying herbs, Yerba Prima's Bentonite + Herbal Detox:
- Supports the liver and bowels to more effectively eliminate toxins
- Purifies and builds healthy blood
- Reduces the frequency and severity of reactions to chemical exposure
- Alleviates occasional fatigue, as energy-sapping toxins are eliminated from the body
- Gently encourages healthy daily elimination
- Promotes optimal hormonal balance in both genders, supporting breast health and promoting healthy prostate function
The key ingredient of Bentonite + Herbal Detox is bentonite clay, which has been used for internal and external purification by indigenous cultures on almost every continent since antiquity. Clay is not digested, but passes through the gastrointestinal tract, where it binds to toxins, including pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, and aflatoxin, and removes them from the body through the stool.
Herbs and Nutrients Provided Added Support
Yerba Prima has enhanced the power of bentonite clay by adding a proprietary mix of herbs and nutrients that:
- Promote detoxification: Di-indolyl-methane (DIM) forms naturally in the body after eating cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli and kale. Calcium-D-glucarate is a special form of calcium naturally produced in the body. Both DIM and calcium-D-glucarate promote phase I and phase II detoxification pathways in the liver, preventing the buildup and accumulation of toxins.
- Purify and build the blood: Chlorella, a single-celled blue-green algae, has a unique molecular structure that allows it to bond to toxins and carry them out of the body. It also supplies chlorophyll, a compound closely related to hemoglobin that improves oxygenation of the blood. Burdock, dandelion, yellow dock, and stinging nettle have all traditionally been used to cleanse the blood and clear the skin.
- Promote gastrointestinal health: The herbs in Bentonite + Herbal Detox also gently stimulate the bowels to ensure healthy elimination, ensuring toxins leave the body.
Additional Benefits for Both Genders
Men and women both produce estrogen, and in both genders, too much or too little can create problems. Many environmental toxins, such as BPA, are foreign estrogens that can occupy human estrogen receptor sites, disrupting hormonal balance. Plus, with age, the body may start to metabolize estrogen differently, producing less of the desirable type of estrogen (2-hydroxy or 2-HE) and more of the undesirable type (16-hydroxy or 16-HE).
Bentonite + Herbal Detox supports hormonal balance in both genders. DIM blocks the conversion of testosterone into estrogen, and both DIM and broccoli sprouts increase levels of 2-HE and decrease levels of 16-HE. Research shows that women with a healthy ratio of 2-HE to16-HE are more likely to enjoy breast health, while men with a healthy ratio are more likely to enjoy prostate health.
Yerba Prima History
Yerba Prima has pioneered significant advances in health enhancing products, including natural dietary fiber, internal cleansing and standardized herbs. Here's how it all got started.
In the late 1970's, an increasing number of health conscious individuals in and around Oakland, California, were learning about the benefits of internal cleansing. Herbalist Robert Gray, author of the best selling Colon Health Handbook, was teaching classes about the use of herbs and dietary fiber for cleansing. People who followed his advice were excited about how much healthier they felt. As more people heard about the benefits of internal cleansing, it was clear that there was a need for a ready to use, high quality formulation of herbs and fiber.
The roots of Yerba Prima go back to August 1980, when an herbalist first prepared the original Kalenite Cleansing Herbs formula in her home and sold it to health seekers in the Oakland area. As sales grew by education and word of mouth, an informal partnership of educators and herbalists developed a small line of five products, including Kalenite and Psyllium Husks Powder, which are still sold by Yerba Prima today. This was the first whole body Internal Cleansing Program to be developed in the U.S. natural products market.
Between 1983 and 1994, the Company introduced nine new dietary fiber and internal cleansing products. These products were based on published medical research, clinical experience and traditional herbal wisdom. Among these were the first complete fiber formulas to offer all five fiber types and a balance of soluble and insoluble fiber.
Internal cleansing was only the first of many Yerba Prima advances in health enhancing products. Yerba Prima's President and Quality Assurance Director traveled to Europe in 1985 to meet with producers of Echinacea and other pharmaceutical quality herbs. After this trip, Yerba Prima was the first company to introduce a Commission E standard Echinacea product (called Echinace) to America. With Echinace, Americans for the first time had access to an Echinacea product that was backed by years of published clinical research.
Yerba Prima's contacts with leading European herbal medicine companies soon led to additional breakthroughs. In 1988, Yerba Prima became the first company to introduce a line of pharmaceutical quality standardized herb products in the United States. Among these products was the first Milk Thistle Seed (Silymarin) extract in the U.S. natural foods market to be standardized for consistent activity and formulated to published clinical research.
Yerba Prima standardized herbs were then upgraded further to offer the first herb line with “Just Once Daily” convenience and the assimilation boosting benefits of patented Bioperine extract. Our Extra Strength formulations of Ginkgo, Milk Thistle, Bilberry and Echinacea include these new benefits.
Supporting the internal cleansing process, the powerful body detoxifier Great Plains Bentonite was introduced. This Yerba Prima product is made with the purest pharmaceutical quality bentonite that is chosen specifically for maximum activity and benefits in the body.
Yerba Prima was then the first company to introduce the powerful odor cleansing benefits of a patented mushroom extract to America, in the product Odor Cleanse. Odor Cleanse actually neutralizes odor-causing substances in the body, to help reduce breath odor, body odor and fecal odor.
In 1991, Yerba Prima moved from Northern California to beautiful Ashland, Oregon. Ashland is located in the Rogue River Valley of Southern Oregon, known for its fruit, its salmon-filled mountain lakes and rivers, and its rugged natural setting. Ashland, Oregon is also the home of Southern Oregon University and the renowned Oregon Shakespeare Festival. With our emphasis on natural products and healthy living, Yerba Prima is a natural fit with this beautiful setting and vibrant community. Yerba Prima is only minutes away from major trucking routes and an airport, allowing us to easily ship our products nationwide and worldwide.
