Not the working out type? Try this trendy, healthy way to losing those holiday pounds

If you’re not the working out type but still in dire need of shedding those holiday pounds, fret not. Instead of exercise, we here at Centric recommend cleansing.

One awesome cleansing product line comes from D Herbs, a Black-owned company helmed by A.D. Dolphin, a former basketball player turned investor.

Dolphin's philosophy is that “the body can heal itself if its got the right fuel.”

D Herbs offers 30 full body cleanses ranging from anti-viral, lung, colon and circulatory to hair, skin and nails. Dherbs cleanses and vitamin formulations alongside a diet of raw fruits and vegetables yield the results customers need and desire.

So just why is cleansing such a great option for freeing yourself of the holiday weight? Check out this breakdown, along with a recipe to Dherbs’ Vegan Pumpkin Protein Smoothie.


The holidays is a dangerous time of year for our waistline because most people gain 60 percent more weight  between Thanksgiving and Christmas than any other time of the year. We consume more calories, sugar, and fats during the holidays which leads to battling the bulge at the top of the new year.

Once you've eating yourself into a coma for Thanksgiving with turkey, dressing and pumpkin pie, Dherbs’ A.D. recommends that you do your body a favor with a full body 7-day cleanse. This is one of the most important ways that you can detoxify, purify, rejuvenate, and eliminate toxins and impurities that have been building up in your body for a whole year. And if you've never done a cleanse then your body is in need of a tune up. If you take your car in for a tune up then why wouldn't you want to give your body one? This is why a cleanse is necessary for you to cleanse out all of the junk and clogged systems in your body.

When your body is operating at peak efficiency, it can help you stave off infections and other health-related issues.The Full Body 7 Day Cleanse can assist in achieving optimal results! It has 7 formulas and cleanses all of all of the adrenal channels (liver, gall bladder, lungs, kidney, bladder, colon and digestive tract, respiratory system, cardiovascular system, blood & lymphatic system). This cleanse also increases your circulation and libido.

Try Dherb’s tasty, fall-friendly smoothie to get started with your journey to cleansing.
