- Clears and detoxifies GI tract
- Promotes a healthy immune system
- Aids the development of natural, healthy gastrointestinal
As our food supply becomes more globalized and with increased
consumption of raw and undercooked foods, strong intestinal
detoxifiers are needed to maintain intestinal balance.
Planetary Herbals Wormwood Intestinal Detox is a unique combination
of strong herbal purifiers that support the body’s natural cleansing
process. Traditionally, these herbs have been used to assist the
body’s efficient elimination of toxins and foreign matter, to expel
waste matter from the intestines, and to promote a healthy GI tract.
This balanced formula combines detoxifying and expelling herbs, such
as wormwood and black walnut hulls, with the classic internal
cleanser and tonic Triphala, for a combined detoxification and
toning of the digestive system.
Wormwood - A Traditional Bitter
Wormwood Intestinal Detox features wormwood (Artemisia annua),
historically known as one of the most effective bitters in restoring
intestinal health. Herbal bitters help stimulate the release of bile
from the liver and further enhance the body's natural cleansing
process by assisting in GI motility (the spontaneous motion of the
gastrointestinal tract). Another key botanical, wormseed (Chenopodium
ambrosioides), promotes the flow and discharge of bile into the
small intestine and assists the body's ability to flush the
intestines. Black walnut hulls and butternut bark are two additional
bitters important to this formula. Black walnut hulls, which contain
juglans and tannins, have traditionally been used to support
digestion and, specifically, a healthy colon. Also called white
walnut, butternut bark is used to cleanse the body and intestines
and ensure proper elimination. Also added is the tonic quassia,
which aids digestion by stimulating the secretion of bile and
Comprehensive Cleansing with the Addition of Triphala
Triphala is a traditional East Indian botanical combination renowned
for its purifying, nourishing, and toning actions. The three fruits
of Triphala, amla, behada, and harada, are powerful astringents and
promote the health of intestinal tissue. At the same time, they work
in combination to support an intestinal environment favorable to
proper flora growth. Triphala promotes efficient elimination. The
addition of this classic internal cleanser fortifies Wormwood
Intestinal Detox, to both detoxify and tonify the digestive system.
Traditionally Soothing Herbs for GI Tract and Immune Support
The surfaces of the GI tract, or mucosa, contain a complex system of
immune cells, which play a role in cellular immunity and other
immune system activity. The health of these cell surfaces is key in
ongoing intestinal health. Many of the herbs in Wormwood Intestinal
Detox are known to soothe or lubricate the gastrointestinal tract,
thereby enhancing GI function.
The principal soothing herb in the formula, marshmallow root,
contains mucilaginous polysaccharides that lubricate and protect
mucous membranes. As a digestive aid and bitter, fennel seed
promotes normal acidity in the stomach and intestines while helping
to support GI motility. Naringenin, present in citricidan, or
grapefruitseed extract, encourages gastro-protective effects by
increasing mucus secretion. Furthermore, ginger root’s active
ingredients, gingerol and shogaol, enhance the secretion of
digestive juice and tone the muscles of the digestive tract.
