The Benefits of a Juice Cleanse

home gallery 2

What are the benefits of doing a juice cleanse?    I have been asked this question many times, and after trying many different cleanses myself I have found the best results using a low glycemic green juice as the foundation.

Why cleanse?   If your body isn't clean on the inside, nutrients don't absorb properly because your digestion system isn't able to do its work properly.  The first step toward optimum health is cleansing.  The most natural way to detoxify and heal the body is through juice cleanses.  Juicing allows your digestive system to take a rest, but your body is still receiving the vital nutrients it needs to THRIVE!  

95% of the vitamins and enzymes utilized by the body are found in the juice of raw fruits and vegetables.  By drinking the juice the vitamins, minerals and enzymes enter the bloodstream rapidly in a concentrated form, allowing all of the nutritional benefits to be absorbed while giving your digestive system a break.  Research on fruit and vegetable juices found that green leafy vegetables in particular were linked to improved cholesterol levels, and they aid the cleansing process of the blood, liver, digestive tract and kidneys.  Green juice provides support to all major organs of the body, and are rich in valuable minerals.

The Standard American Diet is one which promotes acidity in the body...processed, cooked, animal based foods all leave acidic ash in our bodies.  Signs of an acidic body are fatigue, depression, agression, irritability, aches and cravings for stimulants such as coffee.  Green juices are an easy way to promote alkalinity, and bring our bodies back into a balanced PH level.   

When doing a juice cleanse, no energy is used by the body for all goes to ridding the body of built up wastes and toxins.   

Healthy Juicy Holidays

With the Holiday Season upon us, many people find that their diets become less than optimum, their health starts to decline and the "busy-ness" gives way to many meals on the run.   Not to mention all those delicious treats that abound at this time of year.....sometimes making it too tempting to fill up on fatty, sugary things in lieu of regular meals.  

 Many people fall into the "stimulant trap"......the morning coffee just doesn't cut it after awhile, so maybe an afternoon coffee is needed to keep you awake, or the morning cup of coffee becomes the morning pot of coffee, and you might feel the need to add more sugar to "help you stay awake"!   That's because when you drink coffee or consume other stimulants, you are "borrowing energy" from the future.   Adrenal glands are over stimulated, and anyone who has adrenal fatigue will eventually begin to feel less of an effect from the stimulants which leads to wanting more.   And let's face it, there are a LOT of delicious and tempting sugary, caffeine laden "treats" rearing their lovely heads at this time of year!   Coffee shops and bakeries are filled with colorful and fragrant goodies that make it all too easy to grab something that is delightful to the taste buds but may not be so great for digestion or overall health!
