PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

We are firm believers in moderation.

We each have the right to stray from our healthy routine once in a while.  On occasion, we want to feel and taste something decadent or enjoy good old comfort  food that brings back memories from our childhood.

However, the reality is we are not kids with unlimited metabolisms and guts of steel. We bloat up like balloons, pass more wind than Chicago, and can feel  generally lousy – even for days, it seems!

Fortunately, science and nature think you should still have a good time and even offers some help! With the right hacks, you can have your cake and eat it too! Just  not every day.

Herbs are an essential component in the evolution of medicine.  Did you know herbs have side benefits? Today, we are beginning to understand how and to what  extent! Instead of a long list of side effects like the end of pharmaceutical commercials, herbs generally have much more health benefits than our modern medicine  drugs!

Some herbs are adaptogens and can adapt with you as your stress and energy levels change.

Some herbs have natural enzymes and may regulate acid, bile, gut flora, intestinal permeability, and motility!

At the same time, some of them may also boost the immune system, reduce cholesterol, strengthen the circulatory system and help diabetes.

How often do I have to take them? It varies on the cheat day! The bigger the meal, the more you need! It’s not a one dose fits all, all the time. Sometimes I take 3;  sometimes I take 6 – it depends on how many slices of pizza I get – and scoops of ice cream!

You’re going to indulge, so help your body in the process and let go of that guilt!

Nature has provided us with many hacks, and science is discovering how! You do not have to suffer when you jump off the bandwagon for a brief stroll in comfort  land or for when we want to celebrate!

Our natural product can help take some of the load off the stomach for when the time is right!

Be sure to keep our Cheat Day Hacks herbal remedy handy for such occasions!
