Spring time isn’t just for organizing your clutter and deep cleaning, it’s also a great opportunity to purge those unwanted pounds (and maybe even some of those antisocial winter vibes?)

So bring on the shorts and bikinis with a restorative detox and cleanse. Increase your energy to enjoy the outdoors and feel better knowing you will finally get out of your house and have more fun in the sun!

A cleanse can have many beneficial outcomes if done responsibly and with superior ingredients. Cutting corners and using “cheap” and unnatural products can become an intense experience and may even wreak havoc on your body. So choose wisely and know that flatbelly’s commitment to our loyal patrons is reflected in the quality of the products we carry and the integrity of the companies that supplies them.

Tips for a successful cleanse…

During any detox program your main goal is to eliminate toxins, kill harmful bacteria, and restore healthy homeostasis in multiple body systems. While taking any cleansing products it’s important to remember to DRINK LOTS OF WATER! Even if you normally drink a good amount of water, increasing your daily intake will help your body eliminate the toxins your cleanse products have expelled out of your organs. Also, make sure to eat plenty of fruits, vegetable and increase your daily fiber intake. We recommend taking a fiber supplement to aid in the cleansing process. Flax fiber and Psyllium Husks are great, affordable options to add to your detox program.
