HerboCleanse Fruit and Veggie Wash is just what you need if you are worried about contaminants and germs on fresh fruits and vegetables. Although you may be tempted to wash such food items with soap and detergents to disinfect them, this is a practice that health care experts strongly advise against as these products are not formulated for this purpose. Doing so can be harmful and hence, using a disinfectant like HerboCleanse is recommended.
HerboCleanse Fruit and Veggie Wash is unique because it is an alcohol and chlorine free fruit and vegetable cleaner that relies on Ayurvedic herbs instead. Many of these herbs are known for their antiseptic and antiviral properties that make them effective at fighting a wide range of diseases causing pathogens. Ushira for example has been shown to exhibit strong antimicrobial activities, fighting a wide range of pathogens including Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, and Bacillus subtilis, among others. Similarly, research has found herbs like Nagarmotha to exhibit ovicidal and larvicidal effects, which can help protect against parasitic microorganisms like worms. It also helps protect against other disease causing pathogens just like ushira. Rajat Bhasma (silver) is also known to have anti-viral properties.
Other than its herbal ingredients, HerboCleanse also has non-alcoholic cleansers such as coco glucoside and sodium bicarbonate. Sodium bicarobonate (baking soda) is commonly added to food, making it a safe natural ingredient. It is also frequently used in home remedies for cleaning and to treat certain skin conditions. Coco glucoside on the other hand is derived from coconut oil and fruit sugar, which is why it is regarded as an eco-friendly non-ionic surfactant for its powerful cleansing effects. For added protection the fruit and vegetable wash also contains disodium (EDTA), a chelating agent that can help remove dangerous toxins like lead and mercury, which can otherwise be seriously harmful.
NOTE: HerboCleanse is not meant for internal consumption. It should ONLY be used externally on fruits and vegetables as per the directions above. It should not be used on cut or peeled fruits and veggies and should not be used on mushrooms as they are porous in nature. HerboCleanse should also be kept out of the reach of children.
