Do we really need to cleanse our bodies?
Yes, absolutely. As although our bodies have built-in detoxification channels (such as the liver, skin, and colon) these are frequently overwhelmed by the sheer amount of toxic chemicals in our food, water, and wider environment. Sometimes the wastes products just build up in our systems and need a helping hand to get out. A juice detox provides this helping hand. If you are experiencing dark under eye circles, trouble waking up in the morning, sluggishness and fatigue, constipation and bloating or allergies and headaches it could be a sign that you have an excess of toxicity in your body and you would benefit from a juice detox.
All you need is a blender Nutri Bullet or MagiMix juicer and blend with filtered water
Extracting juice from vegetables and fruit is beneficial to health as it contains essential vitamins and minerals and is in a form that is easily digested and quickly absorbed by the digestive system. This is good news for people who have a compromised digestive system and need to get good quality nutrients to improve energy levels.
Not only does mineral and vitamin content of fruit and vegetables blends and juices make them so beneficial, but in them, we have various organic compounds of highly complex chemical structure that exist as vegetable amino-acids (plant proteins) and contain enzymes to strengthen the digestion.
Can anyone do a juice detox?
No, some people shouldn’t – such as people with certain health conditions including pregnant women and diabetics or people who have recently undergone surgery.
Also, if you are taking any prescription medicine we recommend you check with your GP that it is ok for you to complete the program.
If you have IBS - ask a nutitionist for specific fruits and vegetables that should be omitted
