Imagine beginning your day with enthusiasm. Imagine feeling energized after you eat, rather than tired. Imagine naturally moving through your day with focus and clarity, rather than needing a cup of coffee to get you there.
While many of us suffer through each day feeling worn out and exhausted, we don’t have to.
At Body Ecology, we believe that creating energy, correcting digestion, conquering infections, and cleansing toxins are fundamental to health and longevity.
After years (and sometimes, decades) of ignoring the body and its needs, reclaiming your health may seem overwhelming.
This is why, after years of research, Donna formulated the Digestive Care Multi.
One dose of Digestive Care Multi contains:
The most common way that we remedy dips in energy is with a cup of caffeinated tea, an espresso, or a square of chocolate. Instead of forcing the body to exert more energy than it can muster, why not give it the fuel that it needs to feel naturally energetic?
Minerals like sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium are at the core of every enzymatic reaction in the body. They kick-start the production of cellular energy. They help to activate vitamins in the body.
There are 16 major minerals and 7 trace minerals that the body needs to function at its highest level.
If you would like stable energy levels throughout the day, making sure that you have enough minerals—and the right kind—is essential. Unfortunately, many of us grow up eating lifeless, packaged foods that steal minerals from the body, rather than replenish them.
Even in the best circumstances—when food is unprocessed, organic, and GMO-free—whole fruits and vegetables may lack the full spectrum of nutrients that they were designed to have. Even organic food harvested from mineral-deficient soil will always be a pale version of its original potential.
This is why we formulated Mineral Power Blend with biomass, which contains a blend of major minerals and trace minerals that are naturally found in humic substances.
Humic substances are formed over a long period of time when plant matter breaks down into soil, leaving behind plenty of major mineral and trace minerals that the body can easily pick up and use.
Mineral Power Blend also contains Laminaria, a seaweed that became especially popular after the 1986 Chernobyl disaster.
Laminaria is a natural source of alginates, a chelator that absorbs and binds to radioactive elements, heavy metals, and free radicals. Because the body cannot degrade and break down alginates, these are excreted—along with its toxins—from the body.
Heavy metals, like mercury, lead, cadmium, and arsenic, are especially problematic because they can accumulate in the tissue and will not leave the body on their own.
These days, we still can find mercury in dental “silver” or amalgam fillings. Because mercury is not a stable metal, it releases gas that is either inhaled or swallowed. Other common sources of heavy metals include our water supply, paint, and some seafood. Heavy metals are in our environment, and it is difficult to avoid exposure.
Fortunately, like the alginates in Laminaria, the selenium in Mineral Power Blend also has the ability to bind to heavy metals. Selenium assists Laminaria in gently pulling toxicity out of your cells, your tissue, and your body.
Besides chelating heavy metals from the body, Laminaria is a concentrated source of the trace mineral iodine. While the body needs iodine to survive, it cannot make it. Most of the world’s iodine is found in the ocean. A deficiency in iodine has been linked to thyroid disorders and to fibrocystic breast disease.
Mineral Power Blend helps you to conquer two of the biggest roadblocks in health.
The body is always getting rid of as much toxic material as it can. And the liver is our main organ of detoxification. One of its jobs is to convert toxins into a substance that we can easily eliminate.
When the liver is perfectly supported with diet and lifestyle choices, the cleansing process is effortless. However, when switching to a new diet or after years of neglect, the liver can become weighed down.
In order to support this cleansing process, we created Liver Power Cleanse.
Liver Power Cleanse is a blend of 4 herbs that have been found to support the detoxification cycle in the body, naturally lift levels of antioxidants, and assist in cellular repair. These 4 herbs—wasabi, milk thistle, sarsaparilla, and artichoke leaf—all target the liver, which is the area most susceptible to damage during a cleanse or when transitioning to a new diet.
As the liver removes drugs, pesticides, and heavy metals from the body, it produces something called free radicals. Free radicals cause cellular damage and accelerate the aging process.
During the detoxification process, the liver relies on large stores of antioxidants to neutralize these free radicals and to continue the cleansing process. The most important antioxidant that the liver relies on is called glutathione.
If levels of glutathione are low, the cleansing process slows down, and the liver—with the rest of the body—becomes congested and toxic.
Milk thistle contains a group of flavonoids called silymarin. Silymarin goes directly to the liver, helping to repair damaged tissue and support the production of glutathione.
Liver Power Cleanse contains nutrients that enhance genetic and cellular repair.
Wasabi, a cruciferous root that we included in Liver Power Cleanse, contains an exceptional amount of something called sulforaphane. This special compound—sulforaphane—is naturally present in all cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, cauliflower, and kale.
Studies have determined that sulforaphane influences DNA methylation.
Methylation is one of the most significant ways that the body repairs itself. DNA methylation involves turning “off” specific genes, and it helps control what genetic material gets read and expressed within each cell.
When DNA methylation gets mixed up, we see the hallmark signs of aging, including the development of diseases like:
As we cleanse and produce more free radicals, our need for genetic and cellular repair grows. The amount of free radicals in the body can also increase as we are exposed to more stress, environmental pollutants, food irritants, and infection.
Liver Power Cleanse keeps our cells healthy and supports the repair of cells and our genetic code.
Have you heard the advice given to us by Hippocrates, “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food?”
Most of us have.
But if you have ever experienced these following symptoms after enjoying a particularly nourishing meal, you may feel frustrated. Hippocrates’ advice sounds great—for everyone else except you.- Bloating and abdominal cramping - Gas - Heartburn - Diarrhea, or the sudden urge to use the restroom - Brain fog - Sleepiness or fatigue - Stiffness or swollen, tender joints
While what we eat matters, what we absorb matters most.
If we are not absorbing the valuable nutrients in our food or if food is allowed to putrefy and rot in the gut, even the best foods can do more harm than good.
As you transition to a diet that starves Candida yeast infection and balances your inner ecosystem, it is critical that you simultaneously repair the gut and ease the burden of digesting certain foods.
Of all the reasons people choose not to stick with a new way of eating, troubled digestion is by far the most common.
The reality is that almost no one has a perfectly healthy digestive system. When you add a big change in diet—such as more plant-based foods or even fermented foods that fight Candida infection—tummy troubles, indigestion, and die-off can get worse before they improve.
Digestive enzymes help the digestive system to break down large particles of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Unfortunately, after the age of 28 we slowly begin to lose the ability to produce our own enzymes. Many diseases and infections are amplified by our inability to completely digest food.
When we are able to unlock and fully absorb the nutrients in food, our body has more energy and more life force.
Digestive Enzyme Power Blend is a combination of 21 carefully selected enzymes that help you to create more energy, correct digestion, conquer infections, and cleanse toxins.
In addition to the enzymes that most refined and processed food lacks, Digestive Enzyme Power Blend contains acid-stable protease, hemicellulase, and pancreatin.
Unlike many enzyme formulas, our Digestive Enzyme Power Blend features a special ‘acid-stable’ protease enzyme that is designed to survive the acid in the stomach.
Acid-stable protease travels further along the digestive tract and helps in the complete breakdown and absorption of food.
Digestive Enzyme Power Blend contains hemicellulase, a group of enzymes that targets Candida overgrowth.
Hemicellulase breaks down the hemicellulose fibers that form the cell wall of Candida. Like most other plant “roughage,” we cannot digest these special fibers—this is one reason why Candida overgrowth is so difficult to manage.
Hemicellulase enzymes split the cell wall of Candida, helping to control Candida overgrowth.
Digestive Enzyme Power Blend contains pancreatin, a mixture of several digestive enzymes that assist with the movement of food through the small intestine.
Pancreatin contains proteolytic enzymes like trypsin and chymotrypsin, which help to break down proteins. Pancreatin also contains amylolytic enzymes, which take apart carbohydrates, and lipolytic enzymes that break down fat with the help of bile from the gallbladder.
No digestive care program is complete without probiotics.
Probiotics can help to balance to an inner ecosystem that has been damaged from:
Good bacteria and yeast in the digestive tract do more than help us digest our food. From our joints to our skin, from our mood to our waist size, gut bacteria play a leading role in our wellbeing.
The health of the digestive system is central to health of the entire body. For example, studies now suggest that a harmonious inner ecosystem may:
The beneficial microbes in Probiotic Power Blend are designed to work synergistically with each other, giving you the essential tools that you need to rebuild your digestive core.
Bifidobacterium longum has a profound effect on the nervous system. In studies, B. longum has been found to reduce anxiety, especially when there is anxiety along with intestinal damage. Like other beneficial gut bacteria, it also assists in the digestion of food and helps to protect the body against infection.
Naturally found in the human gut and birth canal, Bifidobacterium bifidum is common in breastfed babies and helps prevent diarrhea in infants. B. bifidum also communicates with our immune system and prevents more dangerous and disease-causing bacteria from growing along the lining of the intestinal tract.
Bifidobacterium breve has a big appetite, and it is able to digest a wide variety of molecules. Because of this, it can easily colonize the intestinal tract and compete for intestinal “real estate.” B. breve inhibits the growth of disease-causing bugs in the intestinal tract and naturally thrives in the birth canal, where it helps control the overgrowth of Candida.
Research has found that some bacteria—like Bifidobacterium infantis and Lactobacillus salivarius—are especially anti-inflammatory in nature. These bacteria have a soothing effect on severe cases of inflammation and may help heal intestinal damage. Studies have found that levels of the antioxidant glutathione increase in tissue where there are colonies B. infantis and L. salivarius.
From the lychee and the mangosteen fruit of Indochina, Saccharomyces boulardii is a tropical strain of yeast that supports the growth of friendly bacteria in the gut, inhibits the growth of disease-causing bugs, helps to control inflammation, and releases enzymes that help to detoxify the body.
