Before we get into this, let’s consider the following definitions:
”a process or period of time in which one abstains from or rids the body of toxic or unhealthy substances; detoxification.” (1)
“a process or period of time during which a person attempts to rid the body of substances regarded as toxic or unhealthy, typically by consuming only water or other liquids.” (2)
Nowhere in these definitions does it mention starvation, dramatic results, or raging diarrhea…you with me?
There is a lot of misleading information surrounding a natural detox cleanse. The concept is polarizing yet still somehow provides hope. You want to believe that in two, three, or seven days your weight loss struggle can be over. Sadly, like bulls hating red and Santa Clause, this is a myth.
Why do I need a cleanse?
Environmental pollutants, chemicals in the food supply, and overly-processed foods can start to take their toll on your body. When you combine that with stress, getting older, lack of exercise, and a poor diet, you can start feeling bloated, sluggish, distracted, and generally uncomfortable. Breakouts and weight gain, especially in the stomach-area, are your body’s way of telling you something is off. A good detox cleanse will work from the inside out to reset your body.
What can a detox cleanse do?
Your body has all the systems in place to detoxify itself. Impurities and toxins are filtered through the bloodstream, then sent to the liver and disposed of through sweat or urine. Therefore, we’re looking for nutrients that will support and safely enhance the liver's ability to process chemicals and ultimately rid of them. Read further for my science on the matter.
What’s cool is, when used properly, the best detox cleanse can also serve as a segway to making better fitness and diet choices. It should focus on replenishing the nutrients and enzymes your body needs for optimal function by supporting the systems that are already there.
Can I get fast results?
It took time to gain weight, and it will take time to lose it.
An online gimmick or dangerous crash diet will not give you the results they promised. Often times, those diets do more harm than good. Diuretics and laxatives paired with high levels of caffeine do little besides dehydrating you with frequent, unpleasant trips to the bathroom. With our cleanse you can get faster results, they won’t be overnight, but they will be long-lasting and safe!
What does a healthy cleanse look like?
The great news about Wellthy’s cleansing program is, we did the hard work for you! Just two pills a day taken with a healthy meal can leave you feeling refreshed, reenergized, and strong. Before you can worry about weight loss, you have to support the digestive organs and we provide you with the easiest way to do that. CLEANSE is a gentle, full-body detox supplement with the nutrients you need to fight inflammation, improve digestion, balance your hormones, and boost your metabolism.
Dandelion root extract is a natural source of fiber and a potent antioxidant that supports your entire digestive system. This potassium-rich plant also helps to lower blood pressure while protecting and restoring an overworked liver. The mineral Selenium is essential for proper thyroid health and function. Your thyroid gland regulates your metabolic rate, energy levels, and hormones. Cranberry extract helps flush out the kidneys and the lymphatic system to aid in our natural detoxification process. CLEANSE includes five B vitamins which are essential for a healthy, functioning metabolism. That is the process by which your body converts food to energy. A slow metabolism burns fewer calories so our supplement helps this system to speed up weight loss.
We made sure that you have what you need to lose weight but also live a healthier life by protecting your brain (alpha lipoic acid), eyes (lutein), heart (agaricus bisporus extract), and lungs (reservatrol).
A strict cleanse or drastic detox tricks you into thinking you will get results. In reality, most people end up right back where they were before the cleanse because of the inevitable binge that follows. You will never get what you want from your body by depriving it. Try nourishing and loving yourself instead.
SUPPLEMENTS ARE NOT SUBSTITUTIONS FOR AN UNHEALTHY LIFESTYLE!
They are meant to enhance your progress and wellbeing. You still have to eat right and exercise ideally three to four times a week. Starvation diets and juice detoxes may allow you to lose pounds but it is often just muscle tissue being broken down, not fat loss. We never encourage denying your body nutrients. A healthy cleanse is just another way to say a healthy body inside and out. We give you the tools to lose weight by regulating and supporting your bodily systems. Weight loss takes works but you never have to work alone.
