“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.

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
