Juice Cleanse! Myth or Fact?

Juicing is rapidly gaining popularity as a way to drop extra weight and get all your daily nutrients in the convenience of a portable bottle.‌ Juice cleanse has been touted for its ability to cleanse your organs and even give your skin a healthy glow. But what effects does juice cleanse really have on your body? 

What Is Juice Cleanse?

Juicing is a technique used to extract raw juice from fruits and vegetables. Usually, the juice is released by putting pieces of fruits or vegetables into a juicing machine. The machine uses force to turn the produce into pulp, then separates the juice from the remaining fiber.

Juicing is different from blending. When you blend fruits or vegetables to make a smoothie, the whole fruit gets blended and the fiber from the food remains inside the beverage. It’s also different than store-bought juice, which can contain added sugars and may be from concentrate.

A juice fast typically lasts 1-14 days. There are different methods of following a juice cleanse. Some cleanse require you to drink only freshly pressed juice, while others allow additional food to be eaten during the cleanse. 

Impact of Juice Cleanse on Your Health

Drinking only pressed juice for days at a time might sound challenging, but it comes with its own set of benefits. Fruits and vegetables provide essential nutrients and contribute to your overall health and wellbeing. ‌

Juice contains several active components that can improve your health:

  •  Antioxidants 
  • Antimicrobial properties that fight germs
  • immune system support

There’s no evidence that juicing is better for you than just eating those same fruits and vegetables instead. But speaking from my personal experience, the idea of drinking vitamins rather than eating whole fruits and vegetables is less daunting. Whole produce can contain lots of fiber, which could be hard on the stomach when eating large quantities.

If you’ve been feeling sluggish lately or are looking for a quick energy reset, you might have considered having a Juice Cleanse.
