Hit your body’s reset button
|You try to eat healthy, but over time, your body can get a bit worn down. Juice cleansing gives your digestive system a break, strengthens your immune system, and eliminates unhealthy toxins, while still giving your body the nutrients it needs. Whether you’re coming off an indulgent-ridden holiday, or just feeling a little sluggish, a DIY juice cleanse is a natural way to detox and rejuvenate.|
All of the beneficial live enzymes and micronutrients found in fresh juice can be rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream with little digestive effort. Instead of focusing on processing your food, your digestive system can direct energy towards a deep clean of your body, helping you eliminate harmful chemicals and toxic elements that have built up over time. Juicing frees up extra energy and resources for your body, giving it a chance to clean house.
Boost Metabolism & Energy
Fresh juice undergoes little to no heating, which meets the naturally occurring beneficial live enzymes found in your fruits and vegetables remain intact. These enzymes are a critical part of the metabolic activities taking place in your body throughout the day. During a juice cleanse, your body is flooded with these live enzymes, which may boost the speed of your metabolism and help to increase energy levels.
Preservative-laden processed foods can leave behind a harmful build-up of toxins, which slow you down mentally and physically. When you commit to a juice cleanse, you avoid cooked and processed foods, so your body has a chance to remove accumulated toxins.
Reset Your pH Level
Your body is programmed to maintain a slightly alkaline pH level, between 7 and 7.5 on the pH scale. Many of the foods we eat are acidic, which makes it difficult to maintain that slightly alkaline state. The vitamins and minerals required to do so must be drawn from the body’s own stores, instead of being obtained from food. This can leave your body more vulnerable to fatigue, stress and illness, and can also contribute to poor bone health, loose teeth, dry skin, and weak nails. Juice cleanses eliminate the consumption of acidic foods, thereby lowering your pH level. This can help to reduce bloating and inflammation, make it easier for your cells to transport oxygen, and improve overall health.

|Please note: Before starting a cleanse or changing your dietary regime, consult with your health care provider (particularly if you have a medical condition or take medications). If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, your diet should not be restricted to liquids. Another important thing to do pre-cleanse is modify your diet, so your body can ease into the cleanse. Try gradually cutting out red meat, dairy, caffeine and processed foods over those few days, and you’ll find the all-juice diet way more tolerable.|
