Why Runners Should Detox

Our overall health is largely dictated by the quality of our blood, and that’s why blood testing in hospitals is so widely used.

If your blood is not as clean as it could be then you will not be able to transport the two most important elements around your body efficiently, Oxygen and Nutrition.

We feel fit and healthy when we run but everyone can benefit from carrying out a simple detox plan at least once a year. There is no better time of year in the running calendar then Spring time to do this cleanse.

As we train for a Summer of racing our training mileage goes up and so do our acid levels. The negative effect of acid on our bodies can be crippling over a period of time, but in the short term it thickens our blood and this slows down the delivery of the oxygen molecules’ to our muscles .

I take 10ml of Phytolife every evening to cleanse, nourish and balance my cells and do the liver cleanse in early April and October to help lower acid levels and boost my immune system.
