Juice is an extremely powerful thing, it can be the stepping stone to great health. Even just a 3 day juice cleanse can throw up some incredible results from weight loss to helping prevent illness.
Give your stomach a rest: If you’re prone to acid indigestion or heart burn then giving your stomach a rest will help you enormously. Juices don’t take as much digestive processing meaning your stomach works less but you still get the nutrients you need.
Repair your gut: Saturated fats, refined sugars, over the counter medication, additives, pesticides and so on all have serious effects on the functioning of your intestines. You may have heard of “leaky gut syndrome” which means that the imbalance in the gut micro biome (your fauna and flora balance) will break the intestinal barrier and will allow substances in to your system that really shouldn’t be there. By drinking juice you will find that your gut will start to repair and heal because the juice moves quickly through your intestines and is toxin free.
Eat Less: It’s a myth about being able to shrink your stomach, but after a few days on a juice detox you’ll get a psychological boost to help you get over the cycle of eating more than you need. And you’ll find that your body just doesn’t want as much as it did before.
Get rid of toxic foods: If you suspect you’re sensitive to certain foods then doing a juice detox will help you determine what it could be. This is because the detox eliminates dairy, gluten, wheat and refined sugars from your diet.
A blast of nutrition: Juices are the King of raw foods. And that’s because they retain all those vitamins and minerals that are destroyed when you cook the produce. By doing a juice detox you’ll be getting blasts of vitamins that you’ve been missing out on.
Weight Loss: Most people who embark on a juice detox do so because they want to lose a few pounds. A juice detox is a great way to jump start your diet plan because it controls calories, cravings and gives the body a boost in beneficial vitamins and minerals.
Give yourself an energy boost: We won’t lie to you, the first day or two isn’t going to be a bed of roses but once you get past that adjustment period you’ll feel a rush of energy. Your mind will feel clearer and you’ll hop out of bed ready to take on the day.
Hydrate: It’s a fact that the majority of us don’t drink enough water and yet we all know how vital it is to keep properly hydrated. When you take part in a juice detox it is essential you drink at least 6 glasses of water today to eliminate toxins.
Juice detoxes should be a minimum of 3 days and the longer you stay on track the better the results will be. We would love it if you could share some of your detox experiences with us on our Facebook or Twitter.
