Why I Use This in My Spring Cleanse.
Oranges are low in calories, contain no saturated fats, and rich in dietary fiber and pectin. Pectin acts as a laxative decreasing the time of toxic substances in the colon bind to heavy, and reduces hunger cravings.
Flax Seed is high soluble and insoluble fiber as well as being full of omega 3 and many other nutrients.
