Physalis, also known as cape gooseberry, groundcherry, golden berry

or Inca berry, has become popular as a supplement since

Physalis berries are rich in vitamin C, which increases the body’s immunity; vitamin K, essential for the growth of bones and cartilages; beta-carotene and lutein, which help prevent sight diseases; as well as iron, calcium, traces of vitamin B,

included B12, proteins and antioxidants.

It is known it has a compound called withanolides, which act as an

anti-inflammatory agent on the body.

Cayenne pepper is good for helping cleanse the body, since it helps with digestion and thus, with the release of toxins. Dates are also a support for the digestive system since they are a source of soluble and non-soluble fiber that favors bowel functioning and health.

Cinnamon, on the other hand, helps the body regulate the amount of sugar circulating in the bloodstream and when we are in a period of toxemia elimination, it is important to keep blood sugar under control.
