What You Should Know
ReNew Life, Inc. is the producer of Renew Life Original CleanseSMART. ReNew Life was opened in 1997 by Brenda and Stan Watson to expand Brenda’s work with her patients’ digestive health. Through writing and speaking, as well as through the company website, Brenda seeks to educate people about their nutritional needs.
Rather than expanding to cover multiple health topics, ReNew Life narrows down to nutritional and digestive health research and products. The company’s products start with detoxification and cleansing products and go on to include nutritional supplements, weight loss supplements, and even pet supplements.
Renew Life Original CleanseSMART is one of the company’s better known products. This is a 30-day cleansing programs that uses two different formulas – one for the mornings and one for the evenings – to do what they call a total body cleanse.

Renew Life Original CleanseSMART is like many other cleansing products. It does not stand out as being any more effective than other detoxifiers. It may be used to assist a weight loss program but it is not specifically geared toward weight loss. As with all cleansing regimens, proceed with caution and don’t do more than your body can handle.
