In 1941, Stanley Burroughs invented a very powerful diet. He named it as the Master Cleanse Diet. Some people also regard it as the Maple Syrup Diet or the Lemon Cleanse Diet. In fact, it is much more than a diet. If you follow the steps of this diet, you would be able to detoxify your body and on the other hand, you would be able to repair your ulcers and reduce weight. You would also feel energized after finishing the diet.

With the Master Cleanse Diet, you would be able to remove the toxins from your bodies and you would be able to get rid of alcohol, junk food, tobacco, etc. It is because you would be drinking lemon juice made of limes, fresh lemons, maple syrup, Cayenne pepper and water for at least 10 days. Besides this drink, you would have no more solid food for your intestines. It means that you would not eat or drink anything else. However, you would still have enough nutrients for your daily metabolism as there are vitamin and minerals. In fact, some people could keep this diet for a very long time even up to six weeks.

Actually, during your diet, you would have an herbal laxative tea mixture, a saltwater drink mixture and a lemonade drink mixture. In the mornings, you would drink salt water and during the days, you would have lemonade drinks. In the evening, what you drink would be the herbal tea. Of course, if you want, you could have some herbal tea in the morning.

Now, let us take a look at the ingredients of the tea and see why they are so powerful.

First, it is the maple syrup.

Some maple syrup is artificial as they might contain coloring, sugar, artificial flavoring, etc. Therefore, if you want to get the benefits from the real maple syrup, you should try to buy the grade A all natural real maple syrup approved by the USDA. Of course, organic ones would be better.

You might have several questions regarding the syrup, so let me explain some of them here.

First, you might want to know what nutrients are included in the syrup.

In fact, there are a lot of different great nutrients in maple syrup. For example, there is sodium, vitamins, amino acids, fatty acids, carbohydrates, maple sugar, fibers and trace minerals such as manganese and zinc. All these elements are crucial for a healthy body.

Besides, you might want to know how it stimulates the immune system.

Actually, as mentioned above, maple syrup contains a large amount of zinc and manganese and they are very important for a good immune system. SOD, an antioxidant, consists of a kind of manganese which could be found in the maple syrup and it is an enzyme cofactor for a number of enzymes so it is very important for producing energy in our bodies.

Lastly, you might want to know the difference between grade A and grade B maple syrup.

In fact, according to USDA, maple syrup graded as B would be better for cooking purpose or for producing processed food as it is too sweet for people to eat if they consume the syrup regularly. Besides, USDA would try to grade the syrup according to their colors and viscosity. If the syrup is of lighter color, they would probably be put in grade A since lighter color indicates a lighter taste.

Since it is so difficult to be labeled as grade A maple syrup, they would be very expensive and therefore, you could identify the pure maple syrups easily in market. They are expensive but the nutrition values are worth the price. Also, it would be the only choice for your Master Cleanse Diet since other syrup could not provide the same power.
