Body Balance Complex – Your Natural January Detox
With just 5 natural plant extracts – our new Body Balance Complex has been specifically designed to harness the healing effects of the world around us and help you detox. This intelligent blend is a delicate mixture of birch leaves, stinging nettles, fennel seeds, chestnut leaves, and wild cherry stems.
The body balance complex is a safe and natural herbal cleanse. It’s made up of unpretentious ingredients that are known to detox your body and eliminate toxins, all-the-while fighting bloating, water retention, cellulite, and improving your natural circulation.
As always we pride ourselves on bringing you a clean and pure product. You can trust that everything we make is 100% vegan and free from gluten, lactose, gelatin and GMO. Unlike other brands, we don’t use additives, fillers, flavouring or bulking agents. Instead, we prefer to leaf through our herbalists’ handbook and seek out the most potent and time-tested natural remedies.
If we had marketing sessions at Vegavero for this one, we would have brainstormed the word synergy.
Our goal with the Body Balance Complex is to create a lasting sense of harmony, physical lightness and well-being.
We do that by combining ingredients that really make sense. That way we can guarantee that each element is there for a reason. Each plant acts on the body in a different way, while also complementing and potentiating the effects of the others.
We like to keep things simple, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. For us, simplicity is about getting to the core of the problem – with as few intermediate steps as possible – maximising effectiveness and using our resources just how nature intended.
One of the world’s most bountiful plants: birch leaves are a real treasure trove of vitamin C, flavonoids, tannins, sesquiterpenes and saponins. They have incredible diuretic and anti-inflammatory properties. Supplementing with birch leaves helps to cleanse the body. It also supports healthy digestion, treats urinary tract related infections, and boosts the immune system.
The health benefits of this deciduous tree are so well known that Siberian folklore considers the birch as the axis of the universe. The tree of life.
It might seem odd that a stinging plant should promote so many wholesome benefits but it’s actually based on strong science. Nettles are perfectly adapted to make the most of the precious resources available to them. They defend this rich mineral profile by stinging unsuspecting herbivores looking for a quick meal.
These same minerals are what make nettles such an amazing digestive aid. They stimulate the digestive system by accelerating the metabolism. Its diuretic properties help fluids pass naturally through your system. If that wasn’t enough then this natural anti-inflammatory is shown to help treat joint pain to keep you feeling free, lithe and supple.
Did you know: Nettles have a higher protein content than any plant outside of the legume family and are incredibly rich in digestible iron.
A staple ingredient in teas and tonics throughout the ages. Fennel seeds can help you naturalise your appetite by signalling when your stomach is full.
Eating a square meal without overindulging promotes healthy digestion. Which in turn fights the most common causes of indigestion, flatulence, and constipation.
Green-thumbed readers should note that planting fennel in between flowers helps to attract pollinating insects and should help even the most stubborn orchids to bloom!
Though the seeds of the horse chestnut tree are poisonous; the health benefits of chestnut leaves have been celebrated since long before children were playing conkers. Its exceptional vitamin c content makes the leaves perfect for boosting the immune system. The leaves have the added benefit of stimulating the intestine which can prevent constipation and ease stomach pain.
Aside: Chestnut has febrifuge (fever-reducing) qualities. February, when the worst of the winter is over, was once the mark of the festival of Februus. A celebration of the Roman god of fever who purified the land and brought dew to the leaves of early spring plants which resembled the sweating of a fever.
The stems of the wild cherry tree contain important phenols such as salicylic acid and tannins. They have been long used for their diuretic qualities and are known to alleviate problems of urinary retention and joint pain.
Cherries are packed with unique anthocyanins. These are the pigments which give summer fruits their beautiful blue and red colours and have been shown to promote anti-inflammatoryeffects similar to ibuprofen.
Why Body Balance?
These days it seems like everything we eat, drink and wear has been processed to the point of total abstraction. That’s why we think it’s important to remember that honest, natural, solutions are already out there if you just know where to look.
At Vegavero we take plant-based nutrition seriously and our body balance complex has been developed specifically to drop a little bit of natural harmony back into the rat race.
