For millions of people around the world, the thought of a coffee detox is unthinkable. Not only is sipping a cup of coffee each morning an integral part of their daily routine, but it also provides a burst of energy to start the day right while fine-tuning focus and mental clarity.
It’s true that coffee has been linked to several impressive benefits, ranging from increased fat-burning to protection against liver disease, cancer and type 2 diabetes.
However, going overboard in the caffeine department can also be harmful to health, causing a long list of caffeine withdrawal symptoms, such as increased heart rate, high blood pressure, dehydration and panic attacks.
Giving your body a break with a coffee detox can be incredibly beneficial, and swapping out your morning cup of joe for other healthy beverages is actually easier than it seems.
On average, adults should optimally receive between seven and nine hours of sleep each night, but those needs vary individually. For example, some people feel best with eight consecutive hours of sleep, while others do well with six to seven hours at night and daytime napping.

The holiday season is here, and for many people it is the most wonderful time of the year minus well the cries of stressed out shoppers, overwhelmed parents, sales reps and children (who are overdosing on sweets and other holiday goodies).
For many people, everything about the holidays feels like a chore or an unwanted obligation. The season is something that fills them with anxiety instead of happiness. One way many studies show to help with this holiday stress is unplugging!
Unplugging for the holidays is more than just sticking your smartphone or other tech devices into another room for a few hours. Instead, it’s about making a concerted effort to give your brain a break and allow yourself to enjoy life’s smaller pleasures: the company of loved ones, truly enjoying a meal without first snapping photos of it or even just having some mental downtime.

Vitamin D3, also known as the "sunshine vitamin" is an essential fat-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in very few foods. Although classified as a vitamin, it should be considered a prohormone because it is involved in many metabolic processes in the body.
This vitamin plays a role in calcium and phosphorus balance which is crucial for bone health, and nerve and muscle activity. Vitamin D3 also regulates blood pressure, immune function, cell production and insulin secretion.
Why You Need Vitamin D?
Vitamin D3 is vital to several different aspects of our health. Although it’s mostly known for its ability to strengthen the bones and boost calcium absorption, very few know that it’s also involved in:
- immune function

- mood / S.A.D regulation
- weight control
- Natural Histamine Blocker
- Multi-symptom Relief
- Indoor and Outdoor Seasonal and Environmental Allergies
- Pollens, Dust mites, Mold, Animal dander and much more
