Colon cleanse ingredients

In our yearly colon cleanse program, we use the Blessed Herbs cleansing kit.

When you register for the group you must select from two options, the peppermint or the ginger, described below.

After you read, you will be able to tell us which herb / flavor is right for you so we can order the right one for you. 

These colon cleanse ingredients are not just flavors, but are different herbal medicines appropriate for different people.

This is a core idea in herbal medicine, that  herbs act differently in different people. People have different constitutions and needs, and herbs act differently because of this. (This is somewhat true of conventional medicine also, but you don't hear about it much, and they  think it is only a matter of genetics.)

Also, the path to healing from the same condition may be different in two different people, and may call for two different herbs.

This is the case during this colon cleanse. Ginger and peppermint are both powerful herbs when used correctly, but you need to choose the one that will give the best support for you..

Below we help you figure out which one you should choose, and below that we talk about what the different herbs do. (If you want more information, please go to the web page on the Blessed Herbs site describing the colon cleanse ingredients.)


Choose Ginger if any if the following applies to you:
  •  If you have a feeling of cold most of the time or have a feeling of heat, but only in the afternoon or evening, often with night sweats
  • If you usually like heat and dislike cold, except while experiencing a hot spell
  •  If you have cold extremities
If you have hiatal hernia choose Ginger because Peppermint may cause more acid refluxing due to a relaxing effect on the lower esophageal sphincter.


Choose Peppermint† if any if the following applies to you:
  •  If you have a feeling of heat most of the time
  •  If you usually like cold and dislike heat
  •  If you have a burning sensation in your stomach sometimes
If you are taking anticoagulant or antiplatelet drugs or aspirin choose Peppermint, because Ginger at high doses may increase the blood-thinning effect of these drugs but Peppermint does not.

What the peppermint and ginger do in your body:

Either one will relieve digestive upsets and harmonize the formula, but Ginger supports more parts of the body than Peppermint does. Ginger not only supports digestion, but also the cardiovascular and immune systems. Ginger also encourages the growth of friendly bacteria in the gut, dispels unwanted para-organisms, helps make the other herbs in the formula more bioavailable to the body, and helps expel toxins.

Although Blessed Herbs recommends Ginger because of these additional benefits, that does not mean it is appropriate for all people to take. We have found that nearly 70% of our customers choose Ginger and 30% choose Peppermint. Please read the following information carefully to help you in making your decision. Don't make a choice based on taste alone, unless none of the conditions listed below apply to you.
