What is Purification

Purification (also known as detoxification or cleansing) is the process of addressing the natural toxins in the body. The liver, digestive tract, kidneys, bladder, lymphatic system, lungs, and skin are the major systems/organs that are involved in the neutralization and elimination of toxins.

Because we are exposed to high levels of foreign substances and overconsume chemically-treated, synthetically-produced food, extra purification is needed. The Standard Process purification programs utilize whole food supplements, pure food, and water to give the body the resources it needs so that it can purify and rebuild itself naturally Our programs place an emphasis on the liver and colon because these two organs play a major role in supporting the digestive system. *

The Standard Process purification programs will help you achieve a higher level of health by cleansing the body from the inside out.

Toxins in Our Environment

As a society, we face increasing amounts of challenges in our environment. We encounter substances every day from the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the water we drink, including: medications, pesticides, heavy metals, fumes, synthetic materials, cigarette smoke, caffeine, preservatives, and much more. In addition to these environmental challenges, our bodies produce waste by products (such as ammonia, carbon dioxide, and free radicals) as a result of normal metabolism that need to be eliminated. If these toxins are not neutralized and eliminated, the result is suboptimal health.

Do You Have Toxins in Your Body

Think for a moment of all the foods and drinks you have consumed over your lifetime. The amount could literally add up to tens of thousands of pounds.

Answering the following questions may give you some insight as to your current toxic load.

  • Do you or have you eaten processed foods? Do you eat non-organic fruits and vegetables? Do you eat meat and poultry that is not free-range? Do you consume genetically-altered food?
  • Do you or have you ever used artificial sweeteners? Do you drink soda?
  • Do the foods you eat have preservatives, additives, dyes,
  • or sweeteners added?
  • Do you eat fast foods and/or eat out regularly?
  • Do you charbroil or grill foods?
  • Do you drink coffee regularly?
  • Do you drink alcohol?
  • Do you drink tap water?

If the majority of your answers are yes, then it is likely that your diet contributes significantly to your toxic load. In addition to your diet, you are also exposed to other irritants such as cigarette smoke, pollution, hair dyes, dry cleaning fluids, cosmetics, exhaust fumes, soaps, perfumes, cleaners, and drugs. This everyday exposure to these substances may have you feeling less than your best, experiencing:

  • Food cravings
  • Reduced mental clarity
  • Low libido
  • Weight gain
  • Fatigue or difficulty sleeping
  • Poor digestion

The Standard Process Purification Programs

At Standard Process, we realize that every person is in a different place in his or her level of personal fitness and each person has different goals. That is why we provide you with two different programs to choose from. By working together, you and your health care professional should determine which program is best for you. It does not matter which program you choose; what is important is that for three weeks you follow the program in its entirety.

What to Expect During Purification

As you progress through your recommended purification program, you may experience some changes. As always, please talk with your health care professional if you have questions about how you feel or what you are experiencing.

Some Benefits of Completing the Standard Process Purification Program Many people who complete the purification program experience:

  • Increased energy
  • Better digestion
  • Less bloating
  • Clearer skin
  • Shinier hair
  • Disappearance or lessening of past conditions (PMS, digestive problems, etc.)

Purification programs can have a significant, positive effect on the biochemistry of the body while allowing harmful toxins and by-products of daily metabolism to be eliminated. *

Other Changes

  • For some people going through the purification program, the frequency and quantity of urination increases. This is a normal reaction as the body begins to burn fat and natural insulin levels drop. This will level out after a few days.
  • Some people also notice an increase in the quantity of bowel movements. This too is normal. Most people today have forgotten what a complete bowel movement entails.
  • In rare instances, some people experience a throbbing sensation in the head, generalized aches, itchy skin, or fatigue. These are normal occurrences as the body detoxifies and will pass after a day or two.*

What Purification Means for You

Upon the completion of your recommended program, you will have a different mindset about food, your body, and your health. You may experience some or all of the following:

  • Increased energy/vitality
  • Improved health
  • Weight reduction
  • Improved digestion
  • Improved physical appearance
  • Removal of food addictions
  • Clearer thinking
  • Improved elimination*

Purification Products

While participating in  the Standard Process purification programs, your health care professional will recommend that you take the following Standard Process products: SP Cleanse’, SP Complete'”, Gastro-Fiber(R), and SP Green Food”‘.

SP Cleanse®

SP Cleanse enlists the detoxifying properties of 20 different whole foods and botanicals in this vegetarian nutritional supplement. The phytonutrients from these multiple ingredients help the body eliminate toxins that originate in the environment, as well as metabolic toxins that are given off internally.

The vitamin complexes, minerals, and phytonutrients in SP Cleanse support the body’s internal waste-removal systems by:

  • Maintaining healthy liver detoxification function
  • Encouraging healthy kidney function
  • Promoting efficient gastrointestinal elimination
  • Supporting lymphatic system function
  • Helping maintain healthy blood*

SP Complete™

SP Complete mixes with water and fruit or vegetables to make a nutritious supplement shake-completely portable for today’s busy schedules. It offers a balance of essential macro- and micronutrients from plant sources in a highly bioavailable form.

The natural whole food ingredients used to formulate SP Complete deliver powerful antioxidant protection to promote cellular health and support healthy cardiovascular, digestive, and nervous system function. Whether taken alone or before meals, a supplement shake made with SP Complete provides essential vitamins and minerals to the body during purification. In addition, SP Complete can be used outside of the purification program to replace vital nutrients often lost during the refining process of many of the foods we buy*

Gastro-Fiber®

Dietary fiber comes from the cellular walls of plants and has specific effects on different areas of gastrointestinal function. Gastro-Fiber contains phytonutrients from psyllium, collinsonia root, apple pectin, fennel seed, and fenugreek seed.

These whole-food sources function synergistically to:

  • Help cleanse and lubricate the intestines
  • Encourage regular elimination
  • Promote pH balance throughout the gastrointestinal tract
  • Provide an optimal environment for the natural growth of “friendly” intestinal bacteria*

SP Green Food

SP Green Food™ is made up of five organically-grown whole food concentrates: Brussels sprouts, kale, alfalfa, buckwheat, and barley grass. In addition to their natural bioavailability, these foods contain vitamins, minerals, and other unknown synergistic cofactors. Brussels sprouts and kale help

maintain cellular health b}- supplying nutrients that work to detoxify the liver. The phytonutrients in these two green vegetables help protect many of our major organs. Nutrients found in Brussels sprouts and kale promote enzymatic activity required to help detoxify the liver. They also stimulate the natural process designed to clear damaged cells from the body *
