Dr Oz: 3-Day Energy Boosting Jump Start Cleanse
Dr. Oz is on a mission this week to help every one of his fans detox and cleanse their bodies so they are emotionally and physically healthy while getting back all the energy they used to have. Today, Dr. Oz has a 3-Day Energy Boosting Jump Start Cleanse to get you on track to more energy.
Dr. Alejandro Junger, author of Clean Gut, said the most important thing you can do to get your energy back is clean out your gut. He told Dr. Oz the gut is not only where we digest food. It is also surrounded by 80 percent of our immune system which means an unhealthy gut is going to lead to an unhealthy immune system.
Before beginning the cleanse, Dr. Junger suggested taking his skin test to determine whether you should detox or not. If you have any of the signs below, then this detox is for you.
- Less elastic skin (pinch the skin on your skin and see how quickly it returns to normal)
- Dry, puffy skin
- Redness & discoloration

Berberine Supplement Allows Nutrients Into the Gut
Dr. Junger said bad bacteria organize themselves by creating preventive barriers for nutrients trying to get into the gut. This can cause problems very quickly for your health while diminishing your energy. Dr. Junger said the best way to combat the bacteria is by taking a supplement that breaks down the barrier.
Try taking the supplements listed below to break down the barrier in your gut and allow in those good nutrients.
Magnesium Supplement Nourishes Second “Brain”
Dr. Junger said we have a second “brain” around our gut and intestines which is key to feeling happy or sad when serotonin is released into the body. To nourish this second brain, Dr. Junger suggested taking a supplement every night for three nights in a row as part of his 3-Day Jump Start Cleanse.
Bedtime: Take 250 mg of magnesium before you go to bed at night.
