Detox RX Master Cleanse Lemon-Aid Powder

Overall Rating: 5-stars

About Lemon-Aid by Detox RX:

“Your morning glass of warm water and lemon just got easier!

Say goodbye to squeezing lemons every morning and say HELLO! to scoop and stir.

Lemon-Aid helps complete the cleansing process that has been going on during the night. This powder when mixed with warm water helps to flush all the systems of elimination, especially the kidneys, the liver and the colon. It also helps to cleanse waste from the digestive tract.

Not only is our Lemon-Aid Master Cleanse Powder super convenient and easy to use, this formula use the ENTIRE LEMON!
The entire lemon is freeze-dried which is the best method for preserving active enzymes and entire matrix of the plant*. Two of the most potent antioxidant bioflavonoids found in lemon rinds are quercetin and rutin. The bioflavonoid in the white inner rind and fibrous strands are also very cleansing.
Quick and easy to prepare. Just mix and drink.
No artificial ingredients or preservatives.
100% Organic Ingredients

Recommended For:  Kick starting a wellness or body detoxification program and to be used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise.Servings: Enough for 30-40 servings, depending on how much you use per serving.

* HOW DOES IT WORK?

  • Lemon – Made with whole lemons including bioflavonoid rich peel for additional antioxidant power.
  • Cayenne – Fresh freeze-dried whole cayenne provides a warming sensation to the digestive system*; some find that it increases metabolism, stimulates the circulatory system, aids digestion, and helps regulate blood sugar
  • Maple Syrup – rich in essential nutrients such as manganese as well as zinc; Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2007 found that maple syrup contains polyphenols thought to stimulate insulin release through pancreatic cells.”

____________________________

My Experience:

I am a reallllllllly big proponent for doing things on a daily basis to help facilitate efficient digestion and detoxification in the body. Healthy digestion and effective detox does so much for body your daily wellness and your longevity in the big picture.

Lemon is a fruit that is alkaline-forming in the body and helps your body stay calibrated and stay at a healthy pH. I’ve known for a while now that cayenne does some good work on your metabolism (hey, cool!) and have had maple syrup on my radar–it has always intrigued me by being a source of sugar yet having properties that help balance blood sugar.

Thus, I found this Lemon-Aid product by Detox RX to be a pretty wonderful idea–especially in the way they did it! The lemon is freeze-dried to preserve the healing plant enzymes in the lemon and they use the whole lemon (most of the calcium in citrus is found in the peel).

As the suggest on the label, this powdered mixture does have a bit of a spice to it and is very zesty! So, in my case, I came up with this to consume it as a part of my everyday detox routine:

Ingredients:

-A few teaspoons of the Lemon-Aid powdered mixture

-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar

-2 drops of liquid stevia

Instructions:

-Combine all ingredients into 16 ounces of water

I found that since the powder is pungent in itself, it worked for me to couple it with the ACV to take in both robust potions in one swig. The stevia helps take the edge off of the tart lemon and harsh-tasting vinegar.

I’ve experimented with some intermittent fasting in the mornings (consuming only this mixture and no food until about 11am). I didn’t expect it, but I felt immensely energized, lighter and free from bloating and stomach discomfort.

I also particularly love the fact that this a great way to take your detox routine on the road with you. It’s an okay size to pack and will allow you to keep your system going strong: alkaline and clean.

Watermelon Gazpacho

_______________________________________________

My Thoughts:

My interaction with Joulebody has been so pleasant–I’m inspired by the founder’s story (Yvette) and the generous woman I’ve communicated with (Yelena) has been very kind and helpful. I also love the mantra and ideals behind JouleBody: “Yvette Rose’s philosophy based on the concept of RADICAL BALANCE. In Yvette’s words, “You can still have chips and a cocktail if you eat your greens and move your body. Treat your body like an investment and it will reward you greatly.”

Incredibly complex and unique is how I would describe these juices, bar and gazpacho. There are so many different flavors going on (all of them so healthy and beneficial to wellbeing). Taste-wise, the flavors are a bit robust and are not overly sweet. I have a pretty accepting palette for all sorts of flavors, but I’d imagine some people might find the flavors interesting. For me, I can tolerate the lack of sweetness knowing that it’s better that my body is getting more nutrients, sans the excess sugar. The gazpacho was particularly awesome in taste–I had a hard time not eating the whole batch in one sitting; it’s fresh, zippy, delicious and a great use of fresh veggies and fruit!

For example, the Acai Berry juice contains berries, greens and a variety of fibrous seeds (like chia, hemp, flax and pumpkin) that truly make these juices a complete, balanced meal. The citrus juice is the one of these three that is a bit lighter, and it meant to be more of a true, detoxifying liquid detox, as it contains lemon, grapefruit and the healing benefits of turmeric. All of them make fantastic additions to your diet and can help you to reach optimum health. I am a huge proponent of plants to heal and nourish the body. I love that my beliefs align with JouleBody’s.

In regards to quality, I was told that the ingredients used in JouleBody are “mostly all organic.” This is good to hear, but I wish that was a bit more transparent on the labeling if that’s the case. As a consumer, transparency is refreshing and I love when a company states, up front, what you’re about to eat/drink. I appreciate that they use mostly organic ingredients, I’d just like to see that confirmed on the label. I love the BPA free bottling–kudos for that. One more thought on the ingredients; an actual ingredient list for each product was hard to find on the website. If I’m someone buying Joulebody drinks for the first time, I’m going to want to see the full ingredient list, since I won’t have the product in hand.

I’d recommend these products to someone needing a healthy reboot. Since the ingredients are mostly organic, JouleBody is above average int he cleanse & detox department. They also offer programs and full meal programs for those interested in incorporating more than just juice and bars into their detox strategy.
