How would I know I need to cleanse?
If you are experiencing symptoms of indigestion, such as a feeling of fullness and digestive system discomfort, this may indicate that you may benefit from a diet and lifestyle cleanse.

Can I still drink coffee when cleansing?
A diet to support cleansing should consist of whole foods and non-caffeinated drinks. If you drink 2 or more coffees a day, suddenly stopping coffee to do a cleanse may be difficult.
However, it is ideal to stop coffee completely when doing a cleanse, as caffeine is actually metabolised through the first detoxification pathway in the liver and forms intermediate compounds which need to get mopped up by the livers second detoxification pathway. When doing a cleanse, you want to gently support the natural liver detoxification pathways.
If you drink more than 2 coffees a day, it is advisable to gradually decrease your intake by one coffee a day, every 3-4 days prior to a full diet and lifestyle cleanse. If you are a heavy coffee drinker, you may need to take 2 weeks before a full cleanse to gradually decrease your caffeine intake (this also includes regular tea). Even one coffee a day is best given up a couple of days before starting the product.
Can I drink alcohol whilst cleansing?
Alcohol, like caffeine, is metabolised through the liver and therefore to support the natural detoxification processes of the liver, it is advisable to stop drinking alcohol when cleansing.
How long are the effects of cleansing likely to last?
It depends on the diet and lifestyle that is adopted after the cleanse is finished. If you adopt a diet and lifestyle of eating a large variety of whole foods, consuming very little processed food, alcohol or caffeine and eating slowly and chewing food properly, the effects can last for months. If you start back on processed food, alcohol, caffeine and eating on the run, the benefits may only last for a couple of weeks. The ideal situation is to adopt a healthier diet and lifestyle when cleansing so that you reset your habits through this action, and they become the new normal.
What if I struggle to take capsules?
If you struggle to take capsules, simply open up the capsule and pour the contents into your smoothie or water!
