EnduroPacks Product Review


When it comes to almost everything I get into in life, I can be quite obsessive. When it comes to my health, I've become more protective of my body and the items that I put in it. I read labels closely and do a lot of research. The least amount of ingredients typically is my go-to. Make them organic, or at least non-GMO, HUGE BONUS!

Here's why...

Without diving TOO far into the details, I had some blood work and saliva tests last year when I went to a naturopathic physician. I wanted to discuss options that could get me OFF my anxiety medication AND help me wake up feeling refreshed each day. The summary of the series of visits and tests was that my body was not getting enough rest due to poor diet - likely "leaky gut" - which prevents proper absorption of nutrients. This was likely a huge reason for me often not getting restful sleep and suddenly waking up at 2am with my mind racing. 

Also, although not fried, my adrenals were taxed out and sitting in an "adapted to stress" state, which if not addressed could lead to diabetes, heart disease, and possibly many other things that I stopped hearing because I was in shock. I was in shock because I was, I thought, doing good things by eating as Paleo possible and staying active with my workouts. To hear diabetes and heart disease calling my name BAFFLED me!
