What is a Juice Cleanse?
A juice cleanse is a short-term, raw, all liquid diet that is used to assist in achieving health goals. You might have heard the term “juice fast” – we don’t really like it. A fast implies you’re starving your body, which shouldn’t ever be the goal. Starving your body only taxes it further and we are in the business of building you up, in the long run, not breaking you down. A juice cleanse means you still receive plenty of sustenance but in the form of a wholesome, organic, cold-pressed vegetable and fruit juice. This gives your metabolism – including filtering organs like the liver, kidneys, and gallbladder – a break from processing heavy proteins, fats, and other components of your diet that take a lot of work to sort out, giving you simply good, clean energy to work with. Toxins in the tissues are able to mobilize and be flushed from the body for good.
After a juice cleanse, especially one that’s for 3 days or longer, you should feel amazing, energized, and focused. You may notice that you sleep better, and crave better foods.
Why should I Cleanse?
Here is a fun fact: The typical American Diet consists of 60% processed refined foods, 30% animal products, 5% whole grains white potatoes, 5% fruits and vegetables – which is the source of MOST of our micronutrients.
Without micronutrients, our cells are weakened, and susceptible to a whole gang of diseases. Fruits and vegetables are the delivery system that brings the suns energy to our cells, giving them the micronutrients they need. The micronutrients not only nourish the cells, they also clean and remove the waste. And help them resist all those diseases.
