Vacations. The holiday season. A three-day weekend out on the lake. We all enjoy the occasional indulgence. Whether it’s a glass of wine with your Netflix or a juicy prime rib at dinner, there’s no shame in enjoying the moment. If a favorite indulgence has left you feeling bloated, lethargic or just generally blah, it’s time to get back into a healthy routine.
After a period of indulgence, a cleanse program can be a beneficial way to help your body remove any unwanted toxins that may be lingering from your environment, the food and drinks you’ve consumed or other toxins you may have encountered. Although your body will naturally work to remove these from your system, using cleansing products like Detoxify can help supercharge these processes and make the removal of toxins more effective.
Why Start a Cleanse?
Starting a cleansing regimen helps your body remove unwanted toxins from your system more efficiently than it would on it’s own — helping you get back into a healthy routine faster. We come into contact with toxins every day, and after periods of indulgence these toxins can start to build up in our system making us feel groggy, bloated and uncomfortable. Using herbal cleanse products like Detoxify can help remove the buildup of toxins from your body’s digestive, urinary and circulatory systems, getting you back on track.
Cleansing toxins from your systems helps reduce bodily discomfort while also improving your energy levels and helping your body feel refreshed. Detoxify cleanses use a proprietary mix of herbal ingredients, which include American Ginseng Root Extract, Echinacea, Guarana Seed Extract and Milk Thistle Seed Extract. Herbal ingredients have been clinically demonstrated to provide a variety of benefits including promoting healthy, sustained energy; improving focus; enhancing your mood; helping to improve skin health, and can strengthen your immune system. With all of these great natural ingredients, your body will feel rejuvenated and ready for anything — even after a long period of indulgence!
You can also tailor your cleanse regimen to target specific bodily systems such as a digestive system cleanse if you have indulged in heavy meals and processed foods, or focus on a more holistic multi-system cleansing approach.
How to Start a Cleanse
Picking the right detox regimen for your goals is the first step in your detox journey. Think about what you want to achieve and the timeframe you have to achieve it. For some, a short-term cleanse is the perfect pick-me-up after a weekend of heavy toxins. For others, a long-term cleanse may be more beneficial to nurture healthy habits over a longer period of time.
Consider pre-cleansing. Pre-cleansing helps jumpstart the detoxification process and typically includes a 48 hour period of clean eating or fasting and increasing your water intake. Detoxify Precleanse is the perfect companion for herbal cleansing products, and helps to prepare your body for optimal results (without special diets or fasting!). Or select a Detoxify product that doesn’t require pre-cleansing. Our line of products featuring Metaboost eliminates the need for a pre-cleanse. Another great way to ease into your cleanse plan is by starting with a digestive cleanse to remove toxins accumulated in your digestive tract. Then follow with a multi-system cleanse for a full body flush.

What to do After a Cleanse
When you’ve completed your cleanse regimen, it’s important to continue to avoid toxins in order to increase the effectiveness of your cleanse. The cleaner you live, the less toxins will be reintroduced into your system. This means practicing healthy lifestyle choices like eating healthy foods and exercising regularly. You should also get a full night’s sleep to help your body recover from each day and stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water daily.
