January 1st starts the beginning of regaining healthy habits for so many of us. I’ve been living without a kitchen, and it’s been very challenging to eat right without my juicer, sufficient storage for good fresh fruits and vegetables, and the ability to make healthy, comforting soups. As it will likely be a few weeks before I have a working kitchen, I’ve been doing my best under difficult circumstances. I’ve found a good, fresh grocery store that sells organic salads, veggies, and fruits that delivers, which has been a lifesaver. I’ve done endless walkabouts through the outer edges of the grocery store to catch those satsuma oranges and amazing blueberries that are coming through. Still, no one’s perfect and so when Hum Nutrition offered to send me their Hum Cleanse to the Rescue ($42) I gratefully accepted. They also sell a Daily Cleanse ($25), which I’m going to order for myself from Sephora.
This product comes in 21 different envelopes that include four capsules. which is a combination of two other Hum products– Daily Cleanse™ and Flatter Me™. Generally:
- Daily Cleanse contains a unique combination of detox herbs including red clover, milk thistle, dandelion root, and organic chlorella, which help remove toxins from the skin and body. It helps detox and cleanse your skin, as well as the liver, bowels, kidneys, lungs, and lymphatic system.
- Flatter Me is a comprenhensive proprietary blend of 18 enzymes that supports all major phases of nutrient digestion. It is uniquely formulated to optimize protein, carbs, fiber, and fats breakdown, and to help with nutrient absorption, relief from indigestion, and bloating.
Basically, it comes with a handy booklet that tells you to eat clean, avoid sugars, processed foods, avoid alcohol and other pointers to eliminate taking on toxins into your system.
Additionally, the booklet explains that one is supposed to take the two big pills in the packet without food, and then the two small ones with food. So, one envelope a day which is pretty easy to remember. You have to keep track of the envelope until you eat so you can take those little ones, but that’s relatively easy to do.
The detox process has been interesting. The toxic elimination aspect has been–um–gentle but noticeable. I’ve been taking these since last Wednesday and have experienced many detox symptoms–a few headache, losing a pant size, a touch of moodiness, and increased thirst. As you can imagine, one wants to push up one’s water intake during a cleanse. As I’m only a week in, I’ve been impressed by the fact that my stomach is, in fact, noticeably much flatter. I haven’t experienced any increased hunger–actually, things have been pretty normal and steady in that department. I also amped up my workouts, because, well January. Ingredients (click to enlarge):
I’m finding Hum Nutrition Cleanse to the Rescue to be very effective, and am thinking about purchasing it occasionally on my own in the future. On a side note, I think my cleanse has been relatively smooth. My apologies for my random emails to the lovely Sabrina at The Beauty Look Book at one my moodier moments. Who thought that giving up toast would lead to that? Anyway, I can only hope that my liver will be singing a happy song at the end of this 21-day trial (and yours too!). This is available at Sephora.
