The herbs help eliminate toxins from the liver, colon, and the skin. Take 50ml in warm water before bed for 10 days. For a more intense cleanse you can take it for longer.
During the detox avoid processed foods, eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, and include seeds like flax, chia, and psyllium for extra fibre. Drink plenty of water or herbal detox teas.
