Cleansing, Detoxing and Nourishing Superfoods
Consider adding one or more of these superfoods/products listed below to one of my seasonal Cleanses, or simply as supportive products for your day-to-day healthy eating lifestyle.
And keep reading for more about using these superfoods with a gentle intermittent fasting protocol for even better results with weight loss on my food-based Cleanse.
Our bodies have a natural capacity to detox, and do this for us silently and un-assumedly every minute of every day of our lives. However when our bodies are faced with toxic overload from our water, air, food, household cleaning products, EMF pollution, etc. etc., which is sadly the case for many of us these days, it can be helpful to add in some additional supportive foods or products to assist us and give us a better chance at a long and healthy pain/disease-free life.
One of the main toxins that is ubiquitous in our soils, foods and water supply these days is glyphosate, the active ingredient in the chemical herbicide Roundup. Research is proving that glyphosate is cancer causing, impairs gut health, is damaging to the liver and kidneys and can cause endocrine-disruption (among other things...sadly the list is much longer).
A few years ago a past cleanser shared with me about a product called Biome-medic that has been proven in double-blind trials to reduce levels of the toxic chemical glyphosate by 74%, as well as decrease C-reactive protein (a marker of inflammation) by 75%, while additionally supporting “good” bacteria and helping to repair the gut microbiome.
And so, given the very real concern about this chemical that is very likely present in each of our bodies at this time, I decided to give this product a try, as well as a few other products made by the same company, Purium. After experiencing good results, and keeping up with the research and news on glyphosate I then started sharing with a few clients to get their feedback, and then began to offer as an adjunct to my cleanses.
The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive! I heartily recommend the below superfoods/products.
These can be added into your diet at any time, but it can be great to combine these products with a cleanse to experience heightened benefits and to allow your detox to go deeper.
What I have found is that some percentage of folks who do my seasonal Cleanses like to add in one or more of these superfoods/products that are listed below. Please follow your intuition and internal guidance system to determine if you would like to include these in your Cleanse. If so, I will support you with clear instructions on how to incorporate and use for the best effect.
The headliner is Biome-medic, which is likely a good preventative choice for most people these days. However there are some other great products that past cleansers and clients have found very helpful including a concentrated tart cherry juice that helps with sleep, a concentrated vegan pre-digested amino acid that helps with energy and muscle building for everyone, but most especially for people who struggle with getting adequate protein or have digestive challenges, or for those who are more athletic. Additionally there are many different green shakes/concentrated nutrition shakes that give overall energy boost and benefit, support balancing of hormones, and provide other general wellness support.
I have tried everything I recommend below, and I work with a couple of these products daily, and several of them regularly as part of my personal health maintenance.
If you would like to add these to your Cleanse, keep reading!
I will be making more specific recommendations on dosing/recommended quantities before the Cleanse begins, so you will have all the instructions you need to use these successfully during your Cleanse.
ALSO, there is a $50 discount available to anyone who is new to trying these superfoods/products. When you check out, simply enter the discount code: EllenKittredge to receive the discount.
A natural product (pill) that when taken twice a day was proven in pre-clinical trials to reduce levels of the toxic chemical Glyphosate by 74%. Glyphosate (Roundup) has contaminated virtually all of the food supply (as well as being found in much of the water supply) in the US, and is ubiquitous in many other countries as well. I, and many other health professionals, are concerned for the health of our populace, specifically the health of our guts, in re: to glyphosate contamination. Without a healthy gut lining and properly functioning digestive organs, our health is greatly impaired. Glyphosate is toxic to the digestive organs and more and more research points to it as an underlying factor in many chronic health conditions.

Recommended dosage: 1-2 per day in divided doses. If you’re very sensitive and detox quickly, start with one a day for the first week and then increase to two a day.
This is a concentrated organic tart cherry juice, taken at night, to support healthy sleep patterns. The health benefits of tart cherry juice are many and varied, and include, cancer-fighting properties, reduction in joint pain and inflammation in osteo-arthritis, cholesterol reduction, lowering of blood pressure (if its too high), faster recovery post-workout, memory enhancement, AND because it naturally contains melatonin, improvements in sleep patterns. I have had many clients report a marked shift and improvement in their sleep with just the addition of this product once a day in the evening. (For more information about the health benefits of tart cherry juice, including links to research studies, please read more HERE.)

Recommended dosage: 1-2 TBSP in 10-16 ozs water an hour before bed
Power Shake or SuperMeal L.O.V.
If you’re a fan of having a daily dose of concentrated superfoods in an easily digestible format, and/or being able to have a quick recovery drink for exercise that’s a good source of vegan protein, either of these delicious and nutritious protein shakes are made with very clean ingredients. You can choose from two different options:
- Power Shake - a deeply nourishing green drink with 8 grams of protein that goes down easy and fuels your body well for a long time. To Purchase the Power Shake, click HERE
- SuperMeal L.O.V. which has 20 grams of protein, and so could serve as a full meal replacement is something that may folks with auto immune conditions or thyroid conditions choose to use. This would be recommended for anyone who might be working out or remaining active while they are on the cleanse. To purchase the SuperMeal L.O.V, click HERE

Also good for general energy and muscle building, for anyone who has been sick/depleted for an extended period of time.
