The purpose of the ‘KICK your HABIT’ campaign is to raise awareness of the complexities related to addiction and dependence.

2. Energy boost
Foods that are high in fat weigh your body down with pollutants and make you feel lethargic. Detox shots and beverages remove toxins from the body and alleviate the stress that these foods place on the body.
3. Eases inflammation
Give your body a break by consuming light detox beverages instead of full-fledged heavy meals, and thus, lowering the free radicals in your body that can contribute to persistent inflammation and illness.
4. Improved skin
By lowering inflammation and purifying the body of excess toxins, detox shots and beverages reduce the appearance of aging. Environmental contaminants and chemical deposits on your skin cause wrinkles and dryness. Detox drinks with vitamin C-rich fruits cleanse your skin cells and provide you with revitalized, radiant skin.
5. Strengthen your immune system
Organs are strained by toxins. They are so preoccupied with removing toxins that they cannot execute their other activities as efficiently. These toxins are absorbed by detox drinks, allowing your organs to concentrate on their duties. This provides an enormous immune system boost.
