Physalis, also known as cape gooseberry, aguaymanto, golden berry, or Inca berry has become popular as a supplement since the Physalis berries are rich in vitamin C, which boosts the body’s immune system; vitamin K, essential for the growth of bones and cartilages; beta-carotene and lutein, which help prevent eye diseases; as well as iron, calcium, traces of vitamin B, including B12, proteins, and antioxidants.

It is known to have 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 bowels’ 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.
