THE 21 DAY PURIFICATION CLEANSE
SP Complete is a mild, non-allergenic protein powder that is not only perfect for CONTROLLING BLOOD SUGAR and losing weight, it is actually a great product to be used in conjunction with a GUT REPAIR PROTOCOL. It also happens to be the cornerstone of the Standard Process Purification Program. Because of their combined low Glycemic properties, this product along with GREENS FIRST can be used together as an incredible weight loss tool long after the Purification Program is complete.

WHY WOULD SOMEONE NEED PURIFICATION OR DETOXIFICATION?
Why purification or detoxification? It’s a great question, and one that I am glad to see you asking. You see, in this age of chemical toxicity and pollutants, we could all use a helping hand. Every day we are all exposed to toxins. These include things like pollution, pesticides, herbicides, as well as chemicals of all kinds. Where do these come from? Although you could have easily come up with many of the things on this list, some will surprise you.
- Processed Foods
- Non-Organic Fruits and Vegetables
- Non-Organic or non-Free Range Meat, Poultry, or Eggs
- Cosemetics, Makeup, Hairspray
- Cigarette Smoke
- Genetically Modified Foods
- Artificial Sweeteners
- Soda Pop
- Foods with Preservatives, Additives, Dyes, or Chemicals with unpronounceable names
- Fast Food / Junk Food
- Charcoaled or Grilled Foods
- Household Cleaners
- Heavy Metals (Lead, Mercury, etc)
- Coffee, Caffiene, Alcohol, Chlorinated or Fluoridated Tap Water
This list is not the only ways we become toxic. Besides the “External” ways of developing toxicity (above), we can become “Internally” toxic as well. Our bodies produce waste byproducts as a result of normal or abnormal metabolic function. These metabolic wastes can build up, and all of it together can cause your health to go astray. Ultimately, toxicity will lead you more CELLULAR DYSFUNCTION. The farther you get from real health, the longer the process and the tougher it will be to get it back. Although the body is a self-healing organism, the more toxicity it is exposed to, the greater the effects of Cellular Dysfunction become. Some of the more common side effects of toxicity include things like.
- Allergy-like Symptoms
- Chronic Fatigue / Lethargy
- Digestive Problems
- Cravings for Sugar and Junk Carbs
- Weight Gain / Obesity
- Weak Sex Drive
- Inability to Think Clearly (some people refer to this as the “Fibro Fog”)
THE BENEFITS OF A PURIFICATION PROGRAM
What are the benefits of purification? They are many and diverse. By CONTROLLING BLOOD SUGAR & INSULIN PRODUCTION, a Purification Program can jump-start one’s metabolism and positively impact biochemical processes in the body. This helps the body rid itself of toxins and byproducts of daily metabolism.
- An Improved ability to Manage your Weight
- Increased Energy
- A Boost in Libido
- Better Digestion / Less Bloating
- Clearer Skin / Shinier Hair
- Better Sleep
- Clearer Thinking
- Improvement of overall Health, and a Lessening of the Symptoms of Poor Health.
How is our Purification Program different than other diets? That is easy to answer. The Standard Process Purification Program is not a diet. It is a program that helps you live a healthier life by purifying, nourishing, and maintaining a healthy weight.
As I have talked about several times on various Blog Posts, the success rate of the Purification Program is astounding when done properly. It is based on several common-sense principles. First, get the junk out. Second, get the proper nutrition in. And third, give it some time. The Purification Program is based on 21 days of Whole Food Nutrition. This Whole Food Nutrition comes in the form of meals and supplements —- particularly fruits and vegetables. While this is going on, you will be purging high-calorie processed foods from your diet. Why 21 days? Three weeks is long enough that you will see results if you do things correctly, but not too long as to be mentally / physically insurmountable. Even from the beginning, you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Nourishing yourself with nutrient-rich foods during the process will provide you with the complex combination of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are needed to protect the body and promote optimal health.
WHAT DOES THE PURIFICATION PROGRAM LOOK LIKE?
The Purification Program consists of at least two products. It is based around SP COMPLETE. This is an excellent Whole Food Meal Replacement Powder that contains not only 10 grams of whey protein (or rice protein for those who are allergic or sensitive to dairy), but things like flax meal powder, rice protein powder, calcium, magnesium, buckwheat leaf, Brussels sprouts, kale, alfalfa, grape seed extract, carrot powder, red wine extract, and several others. It is a product that can be taken every day. And while it is true that SP Complete used to taste terrible, this is no longer the case. It comes not only in the large canister, but in individual serving packs as well (you can easily take them with you).
For those who are willing to juice some kale, cabbage (I prefer purple over green for juicing), carrots, beets, apples, etc, at least once a day, you can probably get by with just the SP Complete and the SP CLEANSE (a product that helps eliminate toxins, while supporting liver, kidney, gallbladder, and digestive function). This is if you are willing to consume some of the fiber left-overs from your juicing and grind a bit of flax meal yourself. If not, you simply need to add the GASTRO-FIBER (a pre-biotic fiber source with substances that help clear out the colon’s mucous lining), WHOLE FOOD FIBER (this is essentially the fibrous leftovers of the juicing process), and SP GREEN FOOD (a liver detoxifier). These five links make up the complete SP Purification Program.
Although you can, if you wish, do the Purification Shakes (lots of recipes for shakes in the material we give you and online), the program is meant to be done eating one meal a day.
