Fruits and vegetables are an important part of a health diet. One study published in the journal Preventing Chronic Disease found that participants who routinely ate less than four half-cup servings of vegetables per day had an increased incidence of Type 2 diabetes and some forms of cancer, in addition to increased cardiovascular risk. Which says a lot when you consider 91% of Americans don’t eat the recommended amount of vegetables.
One of the best ways to get a plethora of the fruits and vegetables you need is through juicing cleanse plans. A quality juice detox cleanse will not only leave your body feeling healthy and refreshed physically, but have internal benefits that you won’t necessarily be able to feel, but are even more important in most cases. Here are three reasons to try a juicing cleanse, regardless of whether you’re already healthy or not.
1.) Rest and Repair: Even though we’re capable of eating nearly anything as humans, the digestion process can be exhausting to your stomach, gut, and liver. A typical 3 day juicing plan will greatly reduce the bodies need to perform such functions as juice is very easily digestible and, if you’re doing it right, won’t contain any toxins. The liver is constantly detoxifying the body from food consumed, it’s a great idea to give it a couple days break.
2.) Invigorate the Body: A juicing cleanse doesn’t have to be about losing weight, although it can certainly help in this regard as well. Aside from that benefit though a juice cleanse can help to naturally improve energy levels, re-hydrate the body, and help your body take care of other ailments by allowing it to focus on rashes, outbreaks, bruises etc. that it normally pushes to the back burner in favor of having to deal with the not-so-good stuff usually consumed.
3.) Healthy Nutrients and Detoxification: While juice fasts, or cleanses, have long been used to shed unwanted pounds, the latest craze is best viewed as part of a national move, especially among people in their 20s and 30s, toward healthier eating and greater consumption of raw and organic produce — in this case, conveniently packaged and easily quaffed on the run. A quality juicing cleanse will help detoxify the body and allow cells a better chance to heal and repair themselves.
A juice cleanse can be a fun, healthy, and unique way to jump start a new diet, workout routine, or just as a way to feel better after say, a holiday gorge-fest? Try one now and you’ll be experienced and ready to go for the post-holiday recovery.
