A high percentage of what you put on your skin (especially products you use daily!) is absorbed straight into your bloodstream and pumped to every cell in your body!

A lot of beauty products on today’s shelves are not made with this in mind. In fact, there are many ingredients in common products that are TOXIC to your system and can contribute to poor health and even disease.

It can be impossible to eliminate your exposure to toxins completely, but there are several common SAFE kitchen items that you can use to REPLACE products that may be harmful to your overall wellbeing.

Today, I want to talk about VINEGAR!

Vinegar in general holds a numerous amount of internal benefits, such as cancer and diabetes prevention, heart and brain health, antimicrobial and antioxidant effects, nutrient absorption help, etc. But right now, let’s look at what wonders vinegar can do for you on the outside!

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
