Enhance UltraShape Results by Detoxing!
Cleanse your body with Detox teas. We also recommend detoxing a few days prior to an UltraShape treatment to enhance the flow of released fat triglycerides.
The most important part about your teatox, though, isn’t even in what tea you choose—it’s in what else you eat: “Tea can only be medicinal and detoxifying if your diet isn’t taxing your system, which most American meals are guilty of,” Lagano says. In order to truly detoxify your body, cut processed and fried foods, and up your intake of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and anti-inflammatory fats like avocados and almonds.
Once your diet is clean and gentle on your body, detoxifying teas can begin to enhance your natural organ function.
