Juice cleansing gives your body the chance to have a much needed break from the loads of toxins that we commonly consume daily.
Juice cleansing can help assist our body’s detoxification and elimination systems, to help clear toxins from the body. Toxins have unfortunately become a common part of modern day life. Daily we are exposed to an array of toxins through the food we eat, air we breath, water we drink, chemicals we put on our skin, plastics we pack our food in and from pharmaceutical drugs we take. If our diet lacks certain nutrients, our natural detoxification processes might be impaired too. Our juice cleanse helps saturate the body with important vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, along with protein that provides adequate amino acids essential for liver detoxification.
Juice cleansing can help bring your body back into a healthier alkaline state. Eating a diet rich in refined carbohydrates, sugars, alcohol, red meat and dairy will put your body in an acidic state. If the body becomes too acidic it can contribute to a range of conditions including cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes, immune deficiencies, accelerated free radical damage, premature aging, and osteoporosis. Acidic environments also encourage the growth of fungus, bacteria and viruses. Juice cleansing encourages you to consume more alkalizing fruits, vegetables, and superfoods such as spirulina, chlorella, and wheat grass, which will help bring your body back into balance.
Are unhealthy snacks or take-away foods increasingly finding their way into your daily diet? Doing a juice cleanse is a perfect kick-start to healthier eating habits. Juice cleanses are a great idea after Christmas, Easter, or after a big night out, to help get you back on the road to healthy eating again.
Juice cleansing is a fantastic way to nourish, rejuvenate and energize your body. Fresh fruit and vegetable juices are rich in vitamins, minerals, living enzymes and antioxidants, which are essential for good health and prevention of disease.
Juices are easy for the body to digest and their nutrients readily absorbed. You are also able to consume much larger quantities of nutritious fruits and vegetables via juicing than if you were able to eat them whole, so juice fasting can help deliver higher levels of vitamins and minerals to your cells. Juices bring a real nutrition to the cellular level of your body.
If you are experiencing symptoms such as tiredness, bloating, wind, constipation, frequents colds and flu, skin problems, weight gain, and sugar cravings, a juice cleanse could be just the thing you need to boost your health. Juice cleansing can help improve your digestion and energy levels, may help boost your immunity, can promote clearer skin, help you lose weight, and generally make you feel healthier.
The natural diuretic action of celery, parsley and other vegetables used in our juices, will help flush excess fluid from between your cells, which will help reduce any fluid retention. A lot of the weight loss experienced on short juice cleanses are due to the reduction in fluid.
