WELLNESS WEDNESDAY: Benefits to Detoxing with RESTART
Hey!!!! Well I have some bad news… I didn’t start! I started to feel under the weather, needless to say it was a rough week. So I am dedicating this blog to sharing my research on Restart and prepping myself for a start in a couple of days!
To catch up if you did not catch last weeks’ blog post. I partnered with a California company to discover and give my opinion on their 14-day detox program. It’s a comprehensive whole body cleanse / detox. It cleans and detoxifies the primary filtering organs of the body by first helping them to purge themselves of excess waste materials and other undesirables, then it helps the body to do it’s normal function of repairing any damage that may have occurred as a result of normal wear and tear or… over use, misuse and abuse. With life getting in the way sometimes our health can take a back seat. To be honest, as I am on this journey I have broken my rule to never not workout three days in a row and I have. So I am very happy to start this detox to get back on track and NOT GIVE UP.
The benefits are worth your attention! So, here are 12 benefits of detoxing:
- It boosts your energy
- It rids your body of excess weight
- It helps with weight loss
- You can strengthen you immune system
- Skin improvement
- Better Breath
