The Master Cleanse has been an effective method of detoxification for more than 40 years. The method has been known to flush toxins out of the body, and eliminate fat in the process.
The cleanse has four key ingredients needed for the process of detoxification to work, namely: Freshly Squeezed Organic Lemon Juice, Grade B Organic Maple Syrup, Cayenne Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Water, but which of the following is the main ingredient, and the most important for The Master Cleanse to carry out is detoxifying role?
Bellow is the four key ingredients in The Master Cleanse, the purpose and role of each ingredient, and their importance, starting from the least important to the most important of the ingredient.
Grade B Organic Maple Syrup – Least Important
One of the roles of Grade B Organic Maple Syrup in the Master Cleanse is to give a little bit of flavor to the lemonade mixture. Without Maple Syrup, the lemonade mixture might be to sour or spicy for most people. The role of the Grade B Organic Maple Syrup is to supply the body with a sufficient source of unprocessed energy.
If maple syrup is not added to the lemonade mixture, the body would not be able to sustain itself. The body needs a sustainable source of energy to be able to properly function. Grade B Organic Maple Syrup does just that.
Grade B Organic Maple Syrup is the least important of all the ingredients. The whole point of undergoing The Master Cleanse, for some people, is for weight loss. Despite the fact that Grade B Organic Maple Syrup is meant to provide energy for its practitioners, it contains 53 g of carbohydrates in every ¼ cup.
This means, in just ¼ cup of Grade B Organic Maple Syrup, it adds 200 calories, when the whole point is to lose calories. Furthermore, The Master Cleanse can do without Grade B Organic Maple Syrup, and alternatives can easily take its place. Grade B Organic Maple Syrup may be replaced by Fresh Organic Sugarcane Juice and Pure Sorghum as an alternative, for those who prefer it.
For people with Type II Diabetes, Grade B Organic Maple Syrup is definitely a no no, due to the high amount of sugar in it (a rating of 54 in the Glycemic Index). In this case, an alternative to Grade B Organic Maple Syrup is Agave Syrup with a Glycemic Index rating of just 27.
Freshly Squeezed Organic Lemon Juice
The role of Freshly Squeezed Organic Lemon Juice is to provide the body with an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, needed to boost the body’s immune system. For ages, man has been known to use lemons as remedies to various ailments, such as colds and coughs.
Freshly Squeezed Organic Lemon Juice is also known to have exceptional detoxifying properties, which is the whole point of going through The Master Cleanse. In fact, Freshly Squeezed Organic Lemon Juice is incredibly potent; it is responsible for the diluting of mucus in the body. This is due to the fact that lemons are the highest source of alkalinity.
Disease causing bacteria cannot thrive in high levels of alkalinity. Freshly Squeezed Organic Lemon Juice provides the body an added boost in protection and immunity over harmful diseases, while undergoing The Master Cleanse.
Freshly Squeezed Organic Lemon Juice is the second least important ingredient in The Master Cleanse, due to the already detoxifying properties found in the more potent Cayenne Peppers. In addition, Freshly Squeezed Organic Lemon Juice can easily be replaced with Freshly Squeezed Organic Lime Juice, which has the same effects. The additional detoxification properties in lemons are just an added bonus.
Water, the source of all life on Earth, is an essential ingredient in The Master Cleanse, since it is the vessel in which all ingredients are absorbed in the body. Water is needed for its practitioners to be able to easily swallow the lemonade mixture, and for its detoxifying properties to be easily distributed in the body.
Without water the other ingredients would not be able to go far. Besides oxygen, water is the most important nutrient needed for the body to survive. According to doctors, on an average, the body can survive without the consumption of food from four to six weeks, but can only survive without water for as much as three days.
Our opinion is water is second to the most important ingredient to The Master Cleanse, due to the fact that water is a necessity if the body is to survive. Without water, the body will not be able to sustain itself for long. Water is an irreplaceable ingredient in The Master Cleanse.
Red Hot Cayenne Pepper – Most Important
Man has found countless uses for Cayenne Pepper. From the culinary arts to law enforcement, and from animal control to first aid and medicine, it has been proven to be nature’s versatile fruit. Cayenne Pepper is the most important of all the ingredients in The Master Cleanse.
Cayenne Pepper has the ability to break down sticky mucus, and at the same time, dramatically aids in the flushing out of toxins from the digestive, respiratory, and circulatory system of the body. It is The Master Cleanse’s main detoxifying ingredient. Further more, due to a recent medical discovery, Cayenne Pepper has the ability to kill cancer cells, and prevents it from coming back.
Cayenne Pepper is the most important ingredient in The Master Cleanse. It is the main ingredient containing the most potent properties of detoxification. Without Cayenne Pepper, The Master Cleanse simply will not work.
The ingredients in The Master Cleanse have both major and minor roles to accomplish, some of which may be less important than the others. However, like in any athletic team, The Master Cleanse will not be able to accomplish the ultimate goal of detoxification, if one of its ingredients, including the least important, is not present. All ingredients must be included to ensure all the benefits of this amazing method of detoxification are put to their use.
