The Top 10 Spectacular Health Benefits of a Juice Cleanse
Juice cleanses are celebrated far and wide for their amazing ability to refresh your health. People embark on cleanses in order to lose weight, clear up their skin, fight bloating and gain more energy. It’s the perfect quick fix to giving your body a rest and to allow it time to detox with a simple, natural regimen that has proven the test of time. No matter your health concern, juicing provides your body with a flood of restorative phytonutrients (plant-based nutrients) that reactivate your health and help achieve your health and beauty goals.
With the time constraints that most of us have, it’s no wonder that a staggering 90% of Americans are not able to get their daily recommended servings of fruits and vegetables every day. Juicing is one of the easiest ways to get the veggies we need to restore our bodies with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, proteins and fibers. Our bodies simply thrive on phytonutrients, and these are some of the top 10 benefits that people may receive when they incorporate juicing in their lives.
Juicing allows for the digestive system to take a breather from the energy-intensive heavy digestion, yet allows our bodies the ability to easily absorb the nutrients we need. Without the added burden of digesting food and dealing with the corresponding daily influx of toxins, the energy saved from digesting all those burritos can now be spent replenishing that can’t-stop-won’t-stop attitude!
2. Healthy Weight Loss
When embarking upon any weight loss program, you need to ensure that you are losing the right kind of weight. Most programs result in primarily in water loss or worse yet, muscle loss due to insufficient nutrition. We ensure that your juice cleanse is perfectly balanced for the phytonutrients, protein and fiber that you need. This ensures that you are losing the junk (eg fat loss) and maintaining the good (lean muscle)!
3. Clear Mind
It’s time to feel as amazing as you look. So much of our time and energy goes to the stress of managing our daily lives, and juicing takes out one step of preparing and managing our meals. Without the added burden and toxin influx from unhealthy and hastily eaten meals (causing brain fog), our energy is reserved for replenishing and restoring the rest of our systems, and that includes our mind!
4. Radiant Skin
Seriously, the glow is real. The phytonutrients and antioxidants within your juices can lead to a decrease in puffiness, redness and dull skin caused by inflammation and an increase in healthier hair, skin and nails. The result, a natural, healthy glow that comes from within!
5. No More Bloating
Ever felt like your belly fills up like a balloon by the end of every day? That’s because your body is not digesting your food properly. Bloating can be caused by indigestion, food sensitivities and a lack of digestive enzymes. Juicing helps put your digestive system to rest and floods your body with natural plant-based enzymes that help break down the food that is causing the bloat. The end result? Washboards ain’t got nothin’ on you!
6. Boost Your Immunity
Juicing floods your body with plant-based nutrients that boost your immune system. The trick is, you have to juice smart and not just drink any sugar-laden juice. Sugar actually suppresses the immune system so it’s important to ensure that the juices you are drinking are rich in protein and antioxidants that help build and support your immune system.
Since 90% of us don’t get enough vegetables, it’s guaranteed that 90% of us are too acidic. Too much acidity in the body can cause a host of health problems, including digestive, skin, immune, nervous, and reproductive issues. Fortunately, most plant-based foods are alkaline and help our bodies restore daily. Superfoods such as spirulina, cracked cell chlorella and sea vegetables are especially mineralizing and alkalizing to help restore the body back to its optimal balance.
8. Make Plants Delicious Again
Not gonna lie, most juices taste like lawn mower clippings. As a result, many of them are heavily spiked with sugary fruits in order to mask the taste. However, we found a genius way to make vegetables taste great. We spent almost 5 years carefully crafting the perfect combination of vegetables to ensure that we have the most delicious juices of all. All you have to do is add water!
9. Saves Time
We get it, you’re busy. We are so busy nowadays that vast majority of people simply don’t have time to make healthy choices all the time. When you juice smart, you are treating your body to the vast array of phytonutrients that your body needs and you are saving the time and energy to prep, chop, wash and juice the produce. As we love to say, all you have to do is add water! Bonus for travelers- we have the only juice cleanse that TSA can’t take away from you!
10. Save Money
Organic = Whole Paycheck! We all love organic and non-GMO produce, but most of us aren’t able to afford a bounty of 50 different organic fruits and vegetables every day. Well guess what? Now you can! We call it juicing smart for a reason- we carefully select and sustainably source the organic produce in bulk and pass the huge savings along to you. Now you can save all that money for that Instagram vacation to show off your new juice bod!
