If you're reading this, you're already taking the first step to embarking on your journey to healthy living. (Or maybe you're just wondering what crazy advice I'm going to give you today - I won't judge.) Whoever you are and whatever brings you here, we can all recognize that our health can be improved in one way or another. Right? So, what is "30 Days to Healthy Living?"
It's pressing the "reset" button on your body.
This 30-day program is designed with Arbonne's pure, botanically based and scientifically tested products to detoxify and transform you from the inside out by eating clean, whole foods. *DISCLAIMER: It's not a diet. It's not starving yourself. And it's not counting calories. It is simply giving you the necessary tools and support you need to see incredible results. (I'm talking mind, body, AND skin - yes, what you put in your body matters that much!)
Improvements in digestion
Everything originates in your gut. I'll say that again: EVERYTHING originates in your gut. Your gastrointestinal tract contains about 75% of your immune system and controls the breakdown of food and consequential absorption of nutrients for use in the body. When we consume certain foods our bodies can experience blood sugar irregularities, altered hormone levels, sickness, and other fun symptoms like gas, bloating, and constipation. The elimination of inflammatory foods and common allergens allow us to identify food sensitivities. That's why for 30 days we limit the following:
Stress can cause an increase in the hormone cortisol. When cortisol remains elevated, we see negative health effects such as impaired cognitive performance ("brain fog"), imbalances in blood sugar, suppressed thyroid function, and lowered immune response.

These 30 days are focused on your health and wellbeing, where you are surrounded by a support group to promote stress relief through lifestyle changes.
I'm not just talking about the way it feels - the change is NOTICEABLE. 2 proteins called collagen and elastin are essential for tissue function; they create fibrous networks that provide softness and elasticity to skin. The production of these 2 proteins slows down by 65% between ages 20 and 80. Every year from age 20 on, collagen production slows by an additional 1%, and skin thickness decreases by 6% every 10 years. Yikes. Don't even get me started on sun damage. But here's the kicker: your skincare products matter just as much as the nutrients you put in your body. Ever hear "you are what you eat?" The addition of probiotics ("good bacteria"), digestive enzymes, fiber, proteins, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients in your 30-day package will not only make you feel amazing, but also LOOK amazing. Who doesn't want to feel flawless and confident in their own sk
