ReNew Life - Review and #Giveaway


ReNew Life was established in 1997 by Brenda Watson and her husband.  The leading digestive care company and health foods stores in the U.S. and Canada, ReNew Life dominates the probiotics, fiber and internal cleansing categories.  ReNew Life products are available in over 25,000 retail outlets and online. 

Brenda Watson, founder of ReNew Life, is one of the nation's leading authorities on natural digestive health, detoxification and internal cleansing.  She is the author of eight health books and has made hundreds of public appearances.  Her website, www.brendawatson, receives more than 50,000 visits each month.  Brenda also has a television special on PBS, The Road to Perfect Health - Balance Your Gut, Heal Your Body.

As part of my regimen to lose weight, I chose the DietStart Cleanse from ReNew Life.  To be used for two weeks, this cleanser is a jumpstart to my weight loss program. 

Features of the DietStart Cleanse include:

Promotes Using Fat for Energy

Helps Increase Lean Body Mass

Helps Eliminate Toxins

Fat Cleanse Formula - with Svetol®

Herbal Cleansing Supplements

There are two separate bottles of capsules in this system to be used.  The first is DIET Start I.  It is a fat cleansing formula with a natural weight loss enhancer derived from decaffeinated green coffee beans.  One capsule is to be used two times per day with a low-calorie meal.

The second is DIET Start II.  This colon cleansing formula is a potent colon cleanse with rhubarb and cape aloe to support healthy bowel function, and magnesium hydroxide to help hydrate the powel.  Added FraxiPure, a natural extract of the European ash tree, has been shown to help inhibit excess sugar absorption by the kidneys.  Two capsules in the evening are to be taken before bed with a drink of purified water.

I've taken the two-week supply of DietStart Cleanse and have noticed a more regulated bowel function.  My digestive system is usually very irregular, but it seems to be more regular since I've taken the DIET Start II capsules.  A couple of times after taking the pills, I've had slight discomfort in the abdomen but nothing that's caused alarm.  Since using DietStart Cleanse, I've lost a few pounds and I don't have the normal bloated feeling I always seemed to have.  I don't know a whole lot about detoxification or cleansing and I've just recently begun a weight loss regimen, so I won't claim to be an expert in that area.  What I do know is that I've taken the capsules and they seem to have helped.  Of course, food moderation and exercise is always a must when dieting, but DietStart Cleanse seems to have been helpful to me in the shedding of a few pounds.

Win It!

One person will win a $50 ReNew Life gift certificate.

I learned that natural health experts believe that constipation in childhood is partially due to heavily refined foods, sedentary lifestyles and low fiber diets and are concerned about the potential link between childhood constipation and the development of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) later in life.

i learned that when gut bacteria breaks down phosphatidyl choline from lecithin, a metabolite called trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO) is formed. TMAO promotes atherosclerosis, and higher amounts of this metabolite in the blood increase the risk of heart disease.
