Renew Life - Bowel Cleanse - 150 Vegetable Capsules
Renew Life Bowel Cleanse provides regular bowel elimination that is essential for overall health. Bowel Cleanse is a gentle, natural colon cleansing formula that supports the body’s natural detoxification and cleansing processes, and promotes regularity.
- Soothing and lubricating, not gas-forming or dehydrating
- Promotes bowel regularity
- Triple fiber blend of organic flax seed, oat bran, and acacia fiber
- Balanced ratio of soluble to insoluble fiber
- Contains antioxidant-rich lignans
- Available in capsules or powder
When the colon functions properly, toxins and waste are removed via bowel movements. Bowel Cleanse is a natural colon cleansing formula with 100% organic fiber and bowel-stimulating herbs formulated to help cleanse the colon and support bowel regularity.
Added ingredients support overall digestive health, and magnesium hydroxide helps hydrate the bowel and ease elimination. Unlike many psyllium-based cleansing formulas, Bowel Cleanse provides support without the discomfort of gas, bloating, and cramping. Most colon-cleansing formulas use significant amounts of strong herbal laxatives, whereas Bowel Cleanse contains no harsh laxatives, just natural magnesium to hydrate the bowel and rhubarb—a gentle herb that adds additional bowel stimulation. This deep colon cleanse has a gentle formula, a blend of organic flaxseed, organic acacia fiber, and organic oat fiber. The fiber in Bowel Cleanse helps support colon function without the cramping associated with many other colon cleansing formulas.
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.
Is it necessary to use CleanseSMART if I’ve completed First Cleanse?
It is up to you. Although ReNew Life recommends a progressive cleansing program, beginning with a first-time cleanse and advancing as needed to a stronger or more targeted formula, you should do what feels right for your body. Beginning with First Cleanse is recommended for inexperienced cleansers. Then, once the channels of elimination have been opened up and one’s body becomes accustomed to cleansing, he or she may want something deeper. That is where CleanseSMART would be beneficial. If one has a problem with constipation, an herbal laxative formula such as CleanseMORE may be added to help relieve occasional bouts of constipation.
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 fish oil safe?
Yes. Fish oil supplies Omega-3s, which are the "good" fats that support health and vitality, and that our bodies cannot make.
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 often can I take CleanseSMART?
CleanseSMART may be taken up to four times per year maximum. Generally, cleansing is done on an annual or semi-annual basis.
Do I have to complete all of the cleanses before I take CandiGONE?
No, but ReNew Life recommends that you complete a total-body cleanse such as First Cleanse CleanseSMART initially to open up the 7 channels of elimination and allow the body to become accustomed to the cleansing process. There is no required waiting period in between these two cleanses.
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.
