Master Cleanser Fast
Using The Master Cleanser Fast To Revitalize Your Body
The master cleanser fast is a liquid diet that helps to flush toxins from the body. It consists of drinking a mixture of fresh lemon juice (or sometimes lime is substituted), cayenne pepper and maple syrup.
The individual components of the lemon drink each have many benefits, which combine together to make the Master Cleanse more effective.
Fresh-squeezed lemon juice helps to loosen and break up mucus. Some mucus is a good thing because the body uses it to protect against things like disease and infection, but, over time, mucus can build up and stick to the walls of the colon, which causes it to become blocked. Lemons also contain cationic and anionic minerals, which aren't found in other fruits or vegetables.
Lemon skin can be beneficial too, as it contains many vitamins and can help to prevent unwanted blood clotting. However, when purchasing lemons, be aware that many commercial lemons can contain dyes and pesticides. If you can't find organic lemons, you should peel all your lemons before using them to make your lemon drink.
Another very important part of the Master Cleanse is the use of cayenne pepper. It breaks up mucus, while cleaning out the body's major systems. The warmth of cayenne pepper also helps to open up blood vessels and allow more rapid distribution of both the cayenne itself and other ingredients that it is mixed with. This allows the lemon Master Cleanse drink to be distributed quickly to all areas of the body.
The final major ingredient, maple syrup, is an excellent source of sugars (energy) and minerals, if the right form is obtained.
There are three grades (types) of maple syrup. Grade B is the best choice for this diet because it contains more minerals than Grade A and it also has a better flavor. Grade C can be used in the Master Cleanse drink. It does contain the most minerals of the three, but it has a much stronger taste that many people find unpleasant.
Although those are the only ingredients to the Master Cleanse drink itself, many people choose to use other techniques with the Master Cleanser Diet.
Fiber helps to stimulate the movement of the colon. While the Master Cleanse drink does serve to loosen mucus and toxins from the colon walls, the drink contains no fiber. For that reason, many people also use the herbal tea as a laxative while on the Master Cleanse. In that way, the mucus and toxins can be both loosened, and flushed.
Some people do not use a laxative tea, but instead they use a saltwater flush. Saltwater is a natural substance that the body can easily take in without any problems. The only problem with a saltwater flush is that most people find the taste of saltwater unpleasant. However, if a person can get past the taste, the benefits are wonderful.
Also, some people choose to use the tea at night to further loosen things up and then use the saltwater rinse in the morning to completely flush things out.
No matter which steps a person chooses, there are many wonderful benefits to the master cleanser fast.
