Stay ‘with it’:
Losing weight and keeping it off will take commitment and perseverance. For best results, use Herbex daily for at least 3 months. To achieve and maintain your goal weight, you must adjust your lifestyle. A kilojoule controlled diet and healthy exercise programme are essential.
As a woman goes through the menopausal and post-menopausal stages, she will find that losing weight requires greater dedication. With hormonal levels fluctuating, so will weight, appetite and mood. In fact, a woman goes through a complete ‘change-of-life’ and has to adapt her lifestyle in order to look and feel her best. Decreasing levels of oestrogen cause constipation and water retention. A formula containing laxative herbs will, therefore, be required. Phyto-oestrogens and metabolic enhancers have been included in this product to speed up the metabolism. In post-menopausal women, chronic stresses predominate which can be countered by adaptogenic herbs. Appetite controlling herbs are included, as are diuretic herbs, which will reduce bloating and water retention.
It is not recommended that pregnant women take any form of slimming product. Breastfeeding women should consult their health professional. Do not use in conjunction with any blood thinning medication. Keep out of reach of children.
