Toxic chemicals are all around you. You are exposed to them every day through the foods you eat, the water you drink and even the air you breathe. If these toxic substances accumulate in your body, over time, it can lead to serious health issues. Fortunately, your body is equipped with its own means of flushing out toxins thanks to organs such as your liver, kidneys, intestines and skin. However, your body can always use additional support through other means, such as Detox foot pads.
Give your body a well-deserved break with Groovy Bee Detox Foot Pads. Made with safe, high-quality and ethically sourced ingredients, each foot pad can support your body's natural detoxification process. Some of these ingredients include bamboo vinegar, chitin, loquat leaf, tourmaline, zeolite, vitamin C and more. Our premium detox foot pads contain no gluten or GMOs. They are also vegan and rigorously lab tested for glyphosate, heavy metals and microbiology.
Detoxification, or detox for short, refers to your body's natural process of eliminating substances that could harm your body in the long run. Some of these substances include synthetic chemicals, heavy metals, pollutants and even preservatives and artificial additives from processed foods and beverages.
Your body is equipped to carry out the important cleaning process of detoxification, thanks to organs such as your liver, kidneys, intestines and skin. While your body can naturally eliminate unwanted substances on its own, it can always use a little bit of extra help every now and then, especially nowadays, when most of our food, water and air are more polluted than ever. One of the best ways to support your body's natural ability to detox is to apply detox pads on your feet.
WHAT MAKES DETOX FOOT PADSSO GREAT AT FLUSHING OUT TOXINS?**
Detox foot pads, as their name suggests, are pads you can put on the soles of your feet to support the body’s natural detoxification process.
Based on a centuries-old Japanese tradition, these pads work using osmosis, the chemical process in which molecules – in this case, toxins – get “pulled” or drawn out of the body through the use of semipermeable membranes. This process is seen in many other organisms, such as in plants. Upon application, the potent ingredients in detox foot pads capture and absorb toxic elements and molecules, which then end up “trapped” on the pads themselves.
While it is true that you can put the pads anywhere on your body, putting them on the soles of the feet is generally recommended, mainly because of three factors: the abundance of nerve endings, the number of sweat glands and the pores in the area. These three factors, plus their relatively large surface area, make the feet the ideal site for detoxification. You can even place detox foot pads on specific reflex points on your feet to maximize their effect.
Groovy Bee® Detox Foot Pads are made with the highest-quality ingredients found in nature, some of which have been valued for many generations across different cultures for their health benefits.
And to take things one step further, we've made sure to use only non-GMO ingredients that are ethically sourced and thoroughly lab-verified for cleanliness and purity. This is done to ensure that we preserve the individual ingredients’ purity and thus guarantee their effectiveness.
MINUS ION POWDER
Beaches and other sources of water contain high concentrations of negative ions, which are particles that are good for your overall health and leave you feeling refreshed. The negative ions in minus ion powder act as molecular magnets for many toxins by effectively "mopping" up these toxins using ionic chemical bonds.
CHITIN AND CHITOSAN
A natural fibrous polymer found in certain fungi, chitin and its derivative, chitosan are known as excellent biosorbents. Chitin can effectively absorb and accumulate heavy metals and other substances, thereby making it an integral part of the foot pad. Chitosan is also used in emergency wound bandaging to support natural healing.
Picked from trees native to Asia, loquat leaves are naturally abundant in iron, calcium and other phytonutrients. Because of their impressive nutrient levels, loquat leaves have been utilized in traditional folk remedies for ages. Often used as a natural detox agent, loquat leaves are packed with potent antioxidants, such as vitamins A and C, which support good overall health. They also contain beneficial acids that support healthy fluid secretion.
A natural silicate mineral, tourmaline is a semi-precious gemstone that is known for supporting a healthy mood and normal sleep quality. It is also known to support the body's natural detoxification process, which is why it is often found in detox foot pads.
Derived from glucose, dextrin is a water-soluble natural fiber that is known for its adhesive properties. We used it in our detox foot pads as a kind of glue to hold the active ingredients in the foot pads together. Additionally, dextrin can support your body's natural ability to detox.
A natural preservative of sorts, vegetable fiber helps prolong the shelf life of the other ingredients in detox foot pads, thereby preventing them from breaking down and ensuring that they retain their potent properties.
Bamboo vinegar is noted for its powerful cleansing and sanitizing properties. For centuries, Japanese people have applied bamboo vinegar topically to cleanse and rejuvenate the skin, eliminate foot odor and support good overall health.
One of the most important nutrients your body needs for optimal health and well-being, vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can protect your skin against oxidative damage and support its health.
Zeolite is a microporous mineral best-known for its outstanding ability to absorb or physically trap toxins, heavy metals and other harmful substances.
OTHER WAYS TO SUPPORT YOUR BODY'S NATURAL DETOXIFICATION PROCESS**
Here are additional steps you can take to support your body's natural detoxification process and overall health:
LIMIT YOUR ALCOHOL INTAKE
Excess alcohol in the body can hinder your liver’s ability to carry out its normal functions, which include detoxification. By limiting your alcohol intake, you can ease the strain on your liver, making it easier for this vital organ to flush out toxins.
EAT FOODS HIGH IN PREBIOTICS
GET ENOUGH SLEEP
Maintaining a healthy gut is important if you want to support optimal health as well as your body's natural detoxification system. You can do this by increasing your intake of prebiotics, which feed the beneficial microbes in your gut.
Adequate sleep allows your brain and your body to be well-rested after a long day, which also helps support your body's natural detoxification process.
AVOID THE CONSUMPTION OF PROCESSED FOODS
DRINK MORE WATER
Water does so much more than just rehydrate your body. It aids in optimal digestion and nutrient absorption and even helps your body remove waste products.
Eating processed foods and beverages can negatively impact your liver and kidneys and hamper your body’s natural detoxification process.
Groovy Bee® Detox Foot Pads are surprisingly easy to use.
Gently peel back the adhesive paper off the foot pad.
Apply the adhesive side of one pad to the bottom of each foot. You can even place your foot pads over specific reflex points to support the healthy functions of specific organs.
Leave the pads in place while sleeping, or for at least eight hours.
In the morning, remove and discard the pads. Use soap and water to thoroughly clean the soles of your feet.
It is recommended that you place the pads across the arch of each foot first before moving on to other spots. Make sure they touch as much surface of your skin as possible. You can keep the foot pads in place by wearing tight-fitting but comfortable socks, especially if you tend to move a lot in your sleep.
