Detox and draining food supplement
Body Elixir is our first liquid beauty supplement to be taken orally. Combining carefully selected plants including Green Tea for its diuretic qualities, Birch for its draining, remineralising, and revitalising properties, and Witch Hazel, used for its benefits on the circulatory system, the Body Elixir aids the body to eliminate toxins as well as excess fluid, which can otherwise contribute to the sensation of tired, heavy legs that have a tendency to retain water.

Our skin is the largest elimination organ of our body (it evacuates around half a kilo (about 1 ounce) of toxins per day). It also helps the other primary elimination organs such as the liver and kidneys to evacuate toxins if they are having a harder time doing so. Dry brushing unclogs pores and allows a better elimination process while activating blood circulation and the lymphatic system. Bonus: The immune system is boosted! The Brush and Glow Body Brush exfoliates and deeply stimulates blood circulation resulting in smoother and firmer skin.
1 cap diluted in a glass of water per day. Cure of one month.
Do not exceed the recommended daily dose. Keep out of reach of children. Not recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding women, children and teenagers.

The best time to dry brush is before taking a shower. Start with the surface of your feet, then work your way up to your calves. Always brush in direction to your heart with upward motions. Make sure to attentively brush any areas where you have cellulite, your thighs for example, do circular motions, followed by straight motions going upward. Before brushing your upper body, do not forget your arms and hands, still doing upward motions moving towards the heart. To finish, brush your abdomen and chest - use a clockwise sweeping motion.
Be careful: do not put too much pressure on your brush, keep a light pressure using energetic movements.

I have water retention, which supplement should I take? We recommend our Body Elixir!
It is our first body food supplement to drink. It associates 8 plant actives, which facilitate waste elimination by the organism. It contributes notably to fight heavy leg sensation and water retention.
For a maximum effect, we advise you dry brushing. Our BRUSH & GLOW body brush exfoliates and deeply stimulates blood circulation to reveal a smoother and firmer skin.
How should I keep my Body Elixir after opening? It should be kept away from humidity, heat and in a dry place. You can store it in a cupboard for example or in the fridge if you prefer.
Is the Body Elixir compatible with a no-sugar food diet? Yes, it is! We use aqueous extracts and solvents with a base of water and plants, therefore there is no added sugar. It is harmless for diabetics.
Why can’t people with anticoagulants prescription take it? In absolute terms, there is no contraindication, but if you have the slightest doubt, it is recommended to seek for your doctor’s opinion before taking Body Elixir.
Can we take it with other supplements? Yes, because the formula is different, the Body Elixir is complementary.
When to take the cure? Can we take it continuously? We recommend taking the Body Elixir 3 or 4 times per year, during seasonal, temperature or food changes. During those transitions, our gut and gut system react, this is therefore the ideal moment to do a draning.
If you have a daily heavy leg sensation or a lifestyle which necessitates a lot of sitting position, you may take it all year long, there is no contraindication.
I am allergic to birch pollen, can I take the Body Elixir? Yes because it is not the protein that is used in it.
Is it efficient on dark circles? There is no immediate effect and the Body Elixir is not destined to this but the horse chestnut tree and veinotonics plants (hamamelis) can, in synergy with the Pure Glow, have a beneficial effect on skin and dark circles.
