Benefits of Juice Cleanses and Heart Health

In honor of Heart Health Awareness Month, a yearly initiative that emphasizes the importance of heart health and cardiovascular disease prevention, we wanted to go over the many benefits of juice cleanses. Unfortunately with all our scientific advances, cardiovascular disease is still the number one killer of Americans. Most of us have a family member or loved one that will be affected, which is heart-breaking. However, the solution to this heartbreak isn’t far from reach. Robust scientific studies have proven that the most significant thing you can do for your heart is to get a wide variety of phytonutrient-rich organic vegetables into your diet daily. The higher the amount of vegetables you get in your daily life, the lower the chances of developing cardiovascular disease.

As simple as this solution sounds, it’s much more difficult than it sounds. Simply put, most of us are too busy to shop for a wide variety of organic vegetables on a daily basis. Once you throw in the washing, prepping, chopping and cooking of all your produce, most of us are simply wiped out! Not to mention the race against time with produce spoilage. This is why Smart Pressed Juice was born! We considered all these aspects of heart health and other chronic conditions and concluded that the best way to live was with an abundance of organic vegetables (over 50!) that is affordable and convenient for our daily lives. We couldn’t think of a better way to get a wide variety vegetables than through a fantastic three-step program of getting all the phytonutrients we need for optimal heart health. We may call it a juice cleanse, but it’s actually a nutrition and science-based program for getting all the phytonutrients from vegetablesplant-based proteins, and activated plant fibers that you need. Here are some of the benefits that you’ll experience while doing our juice cleanse:

  • You get your daily intake of fruits and vegetables easily. One packet of juice is packed full of the produce you struggle to consume daily. Every time you make a bottle of juice to drink, you’re adding to your intake of lifesaving fruits and vegetables. It’s a convenient way to get more of the vitamins and nutrients that you need without increasing the amount of food that you’re consuming each day.
  • Your body has an easier time absorbing essential nutrients. When foods are blended, they’re more digestible. You get the benefit of all the insoluble fiber working in favor of you. Your body is therefore better equipped to handle all of the good stuff you’re getting from the juice. According to Dr. Axe, you’ll be able to “absorb the vitamins, minerals and enzymes the juice has to offer.” He compares it to taking a really delicious tasting multivitamin.
  • It’s an affordable way to use up left over groceries. If you make fresh juices at home, you’re able to utilize everything you have in your fridge. This includes the peel and seeds in some cases. There is less waste to deal with which means that you’ll feel better economically and environmentally. Your fridge won’t be full of produce that you can’t possibly eat before it spoils.
  • You can take your prepared juice with you wherever you go. Our juice is so easy to prepare that you can literally throw a couple of packets in your bag and be on your way. As long as you have access to water and a bottle or cup to make the juice in, you’ll be able to drink it. If you prefer it cold, you may way to add ice or stick it in the fridge so it can chill for a while. If you don’t like your drinks too cold, you can always let your juice sit out for a few minutes so it becomes room temperature.

There are many benefits that come with juice cleanses. They help flush toxins from the body, keep you satiated, and provides you with the vitamins, minerals, and enzymes needed to look and feel your very best. Juice is easy to drink, available to take with you wherever you go, delicious, and refreshing.

Smart Pressed Juice isn’t like other juice companies that sell perishable products that come to you on dry ice and must be refrigerated right away. Our juices are unique because they come in packet form. All you need to enjoy them wherever you go is water. Add the recommended number of ounces to the cup or bottle of your choice and enjoy the heart-healthy benefits our juices offer you at home, work, and the gym.

After you complete your juice cleanse, we recommend our smart maintenance program that helps your body keep the results you worked so hard for.  For more SMART health tips like this, make sure to visit and follow us on InstagramTwitter, or like us on Facebook.
