New Year New You!

New Year New You!

We hear this resolution often each new year, and getting healthier is usually a top priority for people. We are here to help you with your goals! With our Detoxifier drink, we allow the body to rid itself of chemicals that can make it harder for the body to heal, and absorb nutrients efficiently.. 

It’s nearly impossible to avoid daily chemicals that threaten your health, when unfortunately they’re hidden in our clothing, furniture, cosmetics, cleansers and body products. Not only that, we are exposed to environmental pollutants, and harmful chemicals in our foods, such as heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides and preservatives. 

It takes being mindful about these everyday toxic influencers that are built up against us, it’s a great idea to use our Detoxifier drink daily to help cleanse and purify the body. When the body is in toxic overload it can lead to inflammation, feeling fatigued, moody, bloated and achy. 

When taking our Detoxifier powder, it is important to have high quality water. Most tap or bottled water contain chlorine (bleach), ammonia (glass cleaner), THMS, VOCS, fluoride, pharmaceuticals, and chromium. These chemicals are fighting against the purifying we are trying to create when taking Happiness Drinks Detoxifier. Luckily there are great water filters and bottled waters to assist in your needs: Big Berkey, Aqua Zero Labs, Culligan, SpringWell--and I use Sweetwater LLC. There are a lot of new water filter companies that have emerged recently, so make sure to do your research before committing. The best drinking bottled waters are Mountain Spring, Evian and Gerolsteiner for mineral water.

Remember, being healthy is a lifestyle! It takes being mindful of your nutrition, sleep, movement, vitamin intake, mineral intake, hydration, stress management, and getting enough sunlight. It’s not always convenient to be healthy, so we are here to make healing a little easier.
