Uses state that it removes toxicins from the body. I don't want to mess with my Cymbalta, but need the other immune building properties of the herb
The way in which your body metabolizes toxins is a multi-level, complex process. Most products on the market advertising toxic cleansing properties have no scientific backing to support their claims. Just keep this in mind when doing your product selection. Nothing really substitutes for cardiovascular exercise in terms of proven outcome. Many toxins store in fat cells, cardio exercise burns fat, and your body is able to rid itself of these toxins. 30 minutes-a-day of brisk walking will probably give you the results you are looking.
"MedicationCounseling" is correct. There is no proven benefit for "cleansing" or products designed to "cleanse" and "remove toxins built up in the body" If your liver is healthy and your bowels and kidneys are healthy, your body will "cleanse" itself just fine. These are just marketing gimmicks, plain and simple. The body can "cleanse" itself just fine as long as you get fiber in your diet and drink plenty of pure water. There is no need for any herbs. Most of these products are not proven to do anything for you. Some just have laxative effects. "Cleansing" and "removing toxins" are just marketing phrases designed to sound logical and good as we are all taught to be clean to maintain health but a healthy body doesnt need any more help in "cleansing" as long as you eat healthy and drink plenty of pure water.
The FDA doesnt oversee the marketing claims of herbs and "supplements" to be sure that they are actually doing the job it is claimed that they do and because of this, there is a lot of "snake oil" on that market, meaning there are a lot of products with magical sounding claims, none of which has been proven by science. Even ones who claim to have been shown in "studies" to do all kinds of miracles, usually these "studies" are very small and are not true scientific studies. Be sure that you thoroughly research any and all products and not just on sales sites. Any site that sells the product isnt going to give you a true review of the product. It is against their interests to say something they are selling doesnt work! So be sure you do your research. I dont think that olive leaf is going to remove your Cymbalta from your blood any faster than normal metabolism (it is probably not going to remove anything else either that normal metabolism isnt already removing) Olive leaf is likely to help you move your bowels but as to any other effects, they are not proven.
