Fast & Be Clear provides nutritional support for detoxification and fasting. It contains high levels of vitamins, minerals and other bioactive food components to maintain the body's antioxidant systems, and helps reduce the oxidative stress from environmental toxins and allergens. While providing broad-spectrum nutritional support, Fast & Be Clear is formulated as hypo-allergenically as possible to reduce interference with the activity of detoxification.
Fasting, or abstinence from food, is recognized as an appropriate and effective detoxification therapy that not only provides rest for the digestive system, but also limits the intake of dietary toxins and antigenic food components. Fasts can also reduce the levels of leukotrienes and the activity of lymphocytes, as well as offer a respite for the various detoxification systems of the body. This allows the body's detoxification system to effectively proceed without dealing with the continued buildup of toxic and allergenic dietary components from regular eating.
Fast & Be Clear powdered detoxifi-cation formula was designed not only to be free of common dietary allergens, e.g. wheat or dairy, but also to provide those nutrients that support the body's detoxification systems. Nutrients such as alpha-lipoic acid, glutathione, carotenoids, bioflavonoids, vitamins C and E, the minerals copper, zinc, selenium and manganese help improve and maintain the body's antioxidant and xenobiotic detoxification systems. This is especially important as fasting can lead to depletion of liver glutathione, and thus reduce the body's capability to quench oxidative free radicals. The liver plays a major role as the main organ of detoxification and xenobiotic metabolism. Other nutrients, such as the conditionally essential amino acid glutamine, are important for maintaining optimum efficiency of lymphocytes and macrophages of the gastrointestinal tract.
