Rosenberg, TX – March 6th, 2014 – Biotics Research Corporation, the industry leader in the development of superior, gluten-free nutritional supplements, has just launched its Detox Challenge utilizing its 10-Day BioDetox Kit to motivate its healthcare practitioner customers to spring clean their patients’ bodies.
“For most people, winter is a more sedentary time, which leads to greater toxin build-up in the body. The arrival of spring provides an optimal time to detoxify the body by using a comprehensive detoxification program,” explained Denis DeLuca, President of Biotics Research. “We’re excited to welcome spring by launching our 2014 detox challenge using our 10-Day BioDetox Kit. The challenge gives our healthcare providers the opportunity to help their patients renew their health and energy that was suppressed by the toll winter takes on the body while also having the opportunity to win a trip for two to Hawaii!”
Biotics Research developed its 10-Day BioDetox Kit to help its healthcare practitioner customers achieve a common goal with their patients: to restore balance and homeostasis and to treat the underlying causes of pain, inflammation, and chronic health issues. The 10-Day BioDetox Kit supports three stages of detoxification – decreasing inflammation, metabolic cleansing, and regeneration and repair.
The detox challenge runs from March 3rd, 2014, to April 30th, 2014, and substantial prizes are at stake for the winners:
* First place will receive a trip for two to Hawaii
* Second place will receive a 16GB iPad Air with retina display
* Third place will receive a 10-Day BioDetox Kit
* Fourth place will receive a $100 Biotics Research gift certificate
