Chlorella has a reputation of a good detox agent as it supports the removal of heavy metals such as lead and arsenic from the body.

Red detox smoothies - anything beyond color?

We know what the word 'green' in 'green smoothie' means. And it's more than just the name of color.

In the same coin, the word 'red' in 'red smoothie' means more than just the color name. Yes, red means something related to do not or danger.

In case of smoothies, it's actually the health risk of not using certain 'red' stuff in smoothies and other health food/drinks.

Here red is not about raspberries or strawberry, but about something that the entire health and nutrition industry hides from you and me. Just like they sell us sugar in hundreds of items without using the word 'sugar'.

Instead of risking to confuse you more, I would rather give you detailed information about 5 secret health rules that the health industry doesn't want you to know (because you'll stop buying).

Do yourself a favor and grab the $17 ebook 'Fat Loss Smoothies' for FREE at the top right on this page (mobile users: scroll down further). Just type your email, hit submit and follow the instructions thereafter.

I give you a free copy of the ebook + reveal all the 5 secret health rules that health industry hides from us.

Hint: If you knew those 5 rules, you'll never need any weight loss system in your entire life. Now you know why they hide :-)

The red detox smoothies are better than average detox smoothies because you beat the health industry in their own game. The best part: all your dollars stay in your purse.


Conclusion

One of the biggest reasons that well informed people detox is because instead of eating less - as when dieting - you need to detox. Almost magically, when you detox the right way, your craving for unhealthy food is reduced naturally. You do not need to reduce your food intake, but need to eat more healthy stuff. This makes it easier for your body to maintain your weight.
