Ultracleanse Plus - Detox Shake - 33 oz
UltraCleanse Plus is a medical food designed for individuals with chronic fatigue syndrome who may benefit from nutritional support for altered energetic and liver detoxification function.
Altered detoxification function may be due to genetic predisposition, a history of chronic nutrient insufficiency, and/or toxin overload, which can result in a build-up of stored toxins and a subsequent increase in symptoms and/or tissue damage. UltraCleanse Plus is designed to support healthy Phase I and Phase II detoxification function and is safe for long term use in individuals with chronic exposure to toxins. This great tasting shake provides great macro- and micronutrient benefits with added glycine and catechins from decaffeinated green tea to better support Phase II activities.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- Why should you detox?
We take for granted that our body naturally detoxifies from harmful substances and pathogens we encounter in our everyday life.
At times our body can get overloaded by toxins which results in our kidneys, liver, lungs, stomach, and skin getting out of balance. When this happens, we can experience symptoms from our body trying to correct itself.
Because of our exposure to environmental toxins and our lifestyle, it’s important to really pay attention to the symptoms we experience.
5 signs you should detox:
- Irregular bowel movements
- Inability to lose weight
- Skin problems
- Gallbladder problems
If you experience any of these symptoms regularly, it’s time to start paying attention to what your body is telling you.
- How long does it take to fully detox your body from toxins?
Even though our bodies have a natural detox mechanism, constant exposure to environmental pollution has just become a part of modern daily life.
The words “detox” and “cleanse” tend to be used interchangeably but mean the same thing: To flush toxins from your body. Some detox programs focus on your general well-being, while others target specific organs like the liver or colon. The right detox will depend on your age, gender, health history, and your health goals.
The detoxification process can vary from one day to weeks depending on the type of detox.
When we talk about detoxifying, we focus mainly on a diet rich in antioxidant-rich foods and probiotics, but detoxifying your body should also include lifestyle changes, getting adequate sleep and incorporating natural wellness boosters.
- What are the signs of detoxing?
As your body releases toxins during a cleanse, a number of unpleasant symptoms can occur that are referred to as “detox”.
These symptoms can include skin breakouts, gas and bloating, body aches, brain fog, low energy, food cravings (sweet, salty or junk foods), constipation, and diarrhea.
Withdrawal symptoms including fatigue, headaches, and irritability can develop after suddenly eliminating sugar, caffeine, wheat, and dairy, all of which can be addictive.
During the first few days to a week after starting a cleanse, it is normal to experience some of these detox symptoms.
- Drink plenty of water and green tea
- Minimize food cravings with an alkaline diet of vegetables, fruits, and herbs
- Include high-quality protein, fiber, and fat to minimize food cravings
- Optimize sleep
- Promote sweating
- Support bowel regularity
- Regular daily exercise
- What should you do while detoxing?
Improve your overall health and enhance your body’s natural detoxification mechanism by following an antioxidant-rich diet, hydrating, consuming less salt, and exercising. These dietary and lifestyle changes may enhance your body’s natural detoxification mechanism.
- Consume a diet rich in antioxidants to reduce damage caused by free radicals.
- Adequate hydration lets your body’s natural detoxification mechanism remove waste products from your blood.
- Eliminate junk food as it is linked to chronic diseases like diabetes and obesity.
- Eliminate alcohol as it reduces your liver’s ability to function normally.
- Avoiding excess salt in your diet will reduce water retention.
- Adequate sleep lets your brain recharge and eliminate toxins that accumulate throughout the day.
- Regular exercise will reduce inflammation while detoxing.
- How do you get all the nutrients you need during a cleanse?
- Vegetables are rich in phytochemicals help regulate hormones, stimulate your immune system, and prevent cell damage. Fill half of your plate with vegetables for most meals.
- Fruits also contain healthy phytonutrients. Healthy adults should incorporate at least 1.5-2 cups of fruit per day per USDA guidelines.
- Be sure to include whole grains and complex carbohydrates.
- Beans and legumes are high in fiber, protein, and iron.
- Focus on healthy fats from avocado, raw nuts and seeds.
- If your cleanse allows dairy, include probiotic-rich organic yogurt and kefir.
- Limit your alcohol and caffeine intake and opt for herbal, white, or green tea.
- Herbs and spices add flavor without sugar or salt.
- If you opt to use a sweetener, choose natural sources.
- If your cleanse allows animal protein, look for wild or organic meat.
- Can you work out during a cleanse?
Yes, physical activity can enhance the health benefits during a cleanse. Exercise improves digestion and boosts your metabolic rate which helps stimulate elimination of toxins.
Because your dietary intake will be restricted during a cleanse, it’s important to lower the intensity of your workouts.
Work out slow and steady to prevent lightheadedness.
Reduce the impact of your workout to lessen the demands on your body and prevent fatigue.
- Aim for shorter workouts to lessen the load on your body.
- Stretch your muscles to keep them moving while reducing fuel demands on your body.
- Work within your limits as changes to your exercise routine can be challenging.
- Pay attention to how your body feels and ease up if you start feeling light headed. But push a little more if you’re feeling good.
