When we do a juice cleanse, our body simply gets a rest from food and digestion. The immune system focuses on elimination of toxins and the organs of elimination (liver, pancreas, gall bladder, kidneys, intestines) start decomposing the dead cells and tissues by process of autolysis in a discriminate manner. The stomach becomes less acidic and certain detox symptoms can be experienced eg. acne breakouts, fatigue, headaches as the body eliminates its toxins. In a few days these symptoms ease and the body feels renewed overwhelmed with a sense of health and well-being!
Over the last few years, we have seen a surge in popularity of juicing as a health and fitness trend. Due to the highly processed foods that we consume and the polluted air that we breathe, our body accumulates toxins. The body does its best to eliminate the toxins, but ends up being stressed due to the overload. Symptoms such as chronic headaches, skin allergies and premature ageing start to appear. What can we do to help our ailing body? Many studies have been done on the beneficial effects of juicing: it provides the body with so many nutrients that can definitely help increase our lifespan, treat bio chemical imbalances, reduce cholesterol levels – just to name a few, and boost our immunity to the maximum.
Juicing does not only help you fight illnesses and diseases, but also improves your concentration, vitality and overall wellness by supplying your body with all the essential vitamins, minerals and other components it needs.
Vitamins and minerals are found in raw fruits and vegetables, but when you take juice from these foods, the essentials are filtered through the juicer and put into a form that is easier to digest and absorb. Juicing is a way of healing and preventing ailments through an exclusive diet of fruits and vegetables – blended or juiced. It’s important for us to make sure we have enough of those crucial substances, and yes, juicing can be the answer.
A nutrient-rich, natural juice cleanse is designed to reset eating habits and kickstart a healthy diet free from processed foods. When you give your body nothing but pure nutrition that it can absorb easily and quickly, you start to feel the effects sometimes immediately! Many people see the following results during and after a juice cleanse: weightloss, more energy, better sleep, mucus elimination, mental clarity, and even a stronger and healthier immune system.
