Botox, who hasn’t heard of it? We all know it for giving many celebrities younger and smoother skin, but did you also know Botox is a natural product? Botox, or botulinum toxin, is a natural protein that is produced by bacteria and has been used as a muscle relaxer in the medical world for years. This protein blocks the stimulus transfer from nerve to muscle, which results in the muscles being unable to contract. This effect is temporary, as the body will break down the protein within 3 to 5 months and your muscles will completely recover.
