While we’re on our January health kicks, detox and ‘flat tummy’ products are being widely promoted by influencers and celebrities. Can they really help you to achieve your goals or are they, at best, a waste of money?
While the nation is set on achieving their diet related New Year’s resolutions, the diet industry is collectively rubbing their hands together. Just this week, Khloé Kardashain has posted to her millions of followers about her love of the supplements from Flat Tummy Co. This has led to outcry from the scientific and medical community warning people that the use of these products is at best unnecessary and at worst harmful. Detoxing in the medical sense is only used to refer to the detoxification process that victims of substance abuse must endure. Any other use of the term ‘detox’ is not legitimate.
