ReNew Life - First Cleanse Kit - Formerly Called CleanseSmart First Cleanse
First Cleanse Renew First Cleanse is an organic blend of safe, gentle and effective whole herbs that help support the body’s 7 channels of elimination. First Cleanse is formulated for people who have never taken a cleansing supplement or who have not cleansed in a few years. The whole herbs used in First Cleanse are gentler than deep-cleansing herbal extracts. First Cleanse 2, the colon cleanse, uses small amounts of rhubarb root and buckthorn bark instead of stronger bowel-stimulating herbs. Both formulas in First Cleanse contain PhytoSorb, a blend of 10 herbs and cellulase that helps to stimulate digestion and break down the cell wall of the whole herbs in the formulation.*

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I take fiber with any part of the cleanse?
It is best to separate fiber from your cleanse or other supplements by 30 to 60 minutes. Fiber may be taken with food or on an empty stomach, at any time of the day.
How do I take other supplements with cleanses?
Other natural supplements should be separated from any part of a cleanse by at least one hour.
Can I take my probiotic supplement with the cleanse?
Yes, you may take your probiotic with the cleanse. An enteric-coated probiotic may be taken at any time, as the delivery system will carry the probiotic safely and directly to the intestines.
Can I increase the dosage of any of the cleanses?
ReNew Life does not suggest increasing the dosage beyond the recommended amount for any of the cleanses, with the exception of CleanseSMART Part 2, which may be increased if necessary for better elimination.
Can cleanses be used for children?
No. The only cleanse that is available for children is ParaGONE for KIDS. Children 16 years or older and over 100 pounds may take any of the cleanses at half the recommended dose.
Can I open capsules if I can’t swallow them?
Yes. You may empty the contents of the capsules for most of the cleanses into soft foods such as applesauce or plain yogurt. However, ReNew Life does not suggest doing so for the ParaGONE or CandiGONE cleanses, as some of the ingredients contained in the capsules may irritate the esophagus.
Can I take my medications with the cleanses?
Some herbs should not be taken in conjunction with medications. It is best to ask your doctor or pharmacist for a list of herbs that should be avoided with the medication(s) you are taking.
If I have a medical condition can I still use the cleanses?
Anyone with a medical condition should consult his or her doctor before using a cleansing product.
Can I take all of the H.O.P.E. formula supplements with the cleanses?
H.O.P.E. is a great accompaniment to all of the cleanses, as high fiber, oils, probiotics and enzymes help to provide digestive support while cleansing. Of course, one would experience the most benefit by taking products in all four of the categories, but taking any of the four would be beneficial to the digestive tract for ongoing daily support.
Will any ReNew Life cleanses make me “run” to the bathroom?
Everyone has different bowel habits. Some people eliminate 2 to 3 times per day, while others eliminate less frequently. The cleanses are not designed to make you run constantly to and from the restroom, but adjustments may be made to the evening colon cleansing formula in order to establish a regular, healthy elimination schedule.
Is there a waiting period between when I can take the cleanses in the recommended cleanse sequence?
No, you may take the cleanses back to back. Certain cleanses have suggested cycles to follow, but the recommended sequence of cleanses can be taken with no breaks in between.
What are the diet recommendations for First Cleanse?
One is not required to radically change his or her diet while taking the majority of the cleanses (the exception being the microbial cleanses). Eating as healthfully as possible is very supportive to the body’s natural detoxification process. Consuming fresh fruits and vegetables, choosing organic foods whenever possible, avoiding chemical additives and preservatives, drinking plenty of water (half your body weight in ounces daily), and limiting caffeine intake and avoiding alcohol are all recommended.
How will I know the cleanse is working?
Everyone will respond differently to cleansing. Typical cleansing responses may include one or more of the following: slight headache, fatigue, muscle and joint aches, minor flu-like symptoms and sometimes minor skin eruptions. These responses usually last about 2 to 3 days, depending upon how the body responds. Every person responds differently to cleansing. Results may vary, but many people experience a general sense of well being and increased energy.
If I do not take FiberSMART and OilSMART with the cleanse, will it still be effective?
Yes. However, the fiber and oils will help you obtain the maximum benefits of the cleanse. Be sure to include a lot of high-fiber foods in the diet (25-35 grams a day) if you are not taking a fiber supplement, as fiber helps absorb and eliminate toxins and waste from the intestines. If too little fiber is consumed, bowel movements may not be regular and toxins that are not eliminated may be reabsorbed back into the bloodstream and the body.
Can I take more than one cleanse at a time?
Generally, ReNew Life recommends taking only one cleanse at a time, but there are some exceptions. You may combine Liver Detox only with any of the other cleanses, except for Total Kidney Cleanse, as long as you have previous experience using these cleanses separately and know how your body responds to each cleanse. They suggest starting out with a half dose of both for the first three days and on the fourth day, increasing one cleanse to full dose followed by the other after another three days.
How long can I use a cleanse?
Generally, the cleanses can be used for a maximum of 3 months straight without a break, unless there are special breaks specific to certain cleanses. These include Total Kidney Cleanse, which is taken 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off and then 2 weeks on again, and ParaGONE, which is taken for 15 days, with a 5-day break, then 15 days back on again. This pattern should be followed if these cleanses are repeated.
What if I forget a dose?
Do not attempt to double up on a dose, but continue taking the cleanse as suggested the following day. You may end up with an extra dose at the end of the cleanse, and that is fine.
