Juice Cleanse Benefits

Do you feel like you need to hit the reset button on a few aspects of your health and wellbeing? Healthy juice cleanses or liquid detox may be just the thing you need to try!

Emerging studies show that juice cleansing provides our bodies with multiple benefits including promoting digestion, improved sleep, an increase in good gut bacteria and added energy!  I want you to understand the fundamentals of the benefits in juicing before you take on the juice cleanse program ( launching in a few weeks) Interested in trying a juice cleanse? Send us a message HERE  and we will inform you of our juice cleanse program. 


A juice cleanse will give your body time to rest, something it rarely gets, to realign and balance your cycle of nutrition. Essentially, it provides space for our cells to breathe and recover.

What Is A Juice Cleanse?

A juice cleanse is where you set aside a period of time, dedicated to drinking only fruit or vegetable juice and water. Throughout the day/night you will replace all meals with liquid in the form of a fresh juice.

As with any health focussed program, you will be advised to follow the guidelines provided to you for the juice cleanse. Recommendations such as reducing caffeine, not over-exercising, removing all processed foods and getting enough rest are vital to the success of the cleanse.

Juicing is not to be confused with a diet, fad diet or short-cut to weight loss. It is not the same as fasting or water fasting. Juicing or completing a juice cleanse in a healthy way will typically have you following a program, cleanse plan or juicing guide.

A juice cleanse needs to provide you with enough hydration, vitamins and minerals to sustain you during the detoxing period. For many, it is not only about juicing but also about the personal journey.

 

Why Does It Matter?

The number of chronic degenerative disorders and the direct connection to our diet are getting harder to ignore. Atherosclerosis, Heart Disease, Cancer, Stroke, Diabetes, Obesity, Allergies and Chronic Immune system Disorders or Deficiencies are the leading cause in over 90% of deaths in the Western world.
Unfortunately, the leading cause of death in Indonesia is also Coronary Heart Disease. The CDC lists Stroke, Ischemic heart disease and Diabetes as Indonesia’s top 3 causes of death.
The classic American Diet or Western Diet is known to have high levels of sugar, salt, cholesterol and processed red meat. Fruit and vegetables are not the major food group being consumed each day so juicing can really help you to boost your daily intake.

5 Benefits Of A Juice Cleanse

A juice cleanse can assist the body by supporting it’s vital organs. To better understand this, let’s take a moment to look at 3 key areas of the body that benefit from fasting, cleansing and detoxing.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, our current lifestyle is the reason why our health is suffering. Physician Chen Yan Fang, from the Eu Yan Sang TCM Wellness clinic says ‘eating too much processed foods, not achieving work-life balance and facing computers all the time plus living in a heavily polluted environment causes toxins to increase’.

The Liver - The first line of defence against toxins, your liver acts like a filter to prevent toxic substances contained in foods from passing into your bloodstream.

The Colon - This organ has bacteria that produce both healthy and unhealthy chemicals. You need to keep your colon moving regularly since its main role is to flush out toxic chemicals before they can do you any harm.
The Kidneys - The kidneys are constantly filtering your blood and getting rid of toxins in the form of urine.

Here are 5 Benefits To Drinking Cold-Pressed Juice:

                          

1. Antioxidants

    Antioxidants are mainly found in plant-based foods. Plant-based antioxidants are a kind of phytonutrient or plant-based nutrient. Fruits, vegetables and herbs are a great natural source of antioxidants and it is one of the main reasons we need to consume a variety of plant-based foods in our diet.
     

    2. Detoxification

    The science behind detoxing is still being researched. When we consume processed foods, alcohol, caffeine and hard-to-digest food, it can leave us feeling tired and unwell. By making a few simple lifestyle changes, like adding in fresh juices and whole foods, your body will likely appreciate the ability to cleanse and restore itself. A juice cleanse is not a quick fix or easy detox, it is a step forward to incorporating long-term healthy lifestyle habits.
     

    3. Chlorophyll

    Green juices are one of the best plant-based ingredients on earth! Basically, chlorophyll is the green pigment that is found in plants which allows them to absorb the light from the sun and turn it into energy! You can find this nutrient-rich powerhouse in leafy green vegetables like lettuce, kale, celery, parsley and spinach and this is why many green juices will contain these ingredients. Chlorophyll is known for health benefits such as healing the skin, treating anaemia, and reducing inflammation.

    4. Hydration

    Our body is made up of 50-80% water depending on our age. This means we need to be replenishing our system to remain hydrated throughout the day. According to research, more than 50% of people are dehydrated - due to consuming less than the suggested daily intake of 5-6 non-caffeinated beverages a day. We all know that water truly is the elixir of life, yet many of us don’t manage to drink enough water. There are several health problems that respond well to water and added hydration including skin hydration and complexion, kidney stones, constipation, headaches and sleep.

    5. Digestive Rest

    How are you feeling today? Bloated, tired, irritable? Perhaps what you need is to provide time for your digestive system to rest and recover. Liquid without the fibre, such as a cold-pressed juice, is very easy for your gut to digest and it reduces the amount of energy needed to process the food you would usually consume on a daily basis. It provides space for your body to heal, absorb added nutrients and simply slow down.

    Digestive issues are one of the most common health concerns. In fact, 10-15% of the population worldwide say they suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome with symptoms such as constipation, bloating, pain and food sensitivities. Depending on how many days your cleanse. juicing can provide your body with adequate digestive rest providing it with time to remove waste, regenerate, absorb nutrients and recover.

     

    How It Works

    Here we will provide you with the information you need for a successful juice cleanse. Preparation is key with any challenge and this includes juicing.
    The best way to reduce stress and ensure each juice you drink is balanced with the right ingredients is to order a cleanse and follow a program. (add link) Zero Waste Bali offer….. Affordable packages… 

    Preparation before the cleanse

             
    Foods to avoid during the cleanse, a few days before and after the cleanse to ease digestion are as follows:
    • Processed foods
    • Meat, poultry, dairy
    • Sugar and sweets
    • Caffeine
    • Alcohol

    Foods to enjoy before and after a juice cleanse. Keep it fresh, light and simple.
    • Raw, fresh juice made from fruits and vegetables
    • Plant-based milk like Almond Milk to replace dairy
    • Herbal tea
    • Gluten-free meals (avoid bread and pasta)
    • Vegetable broth

    Prior to starting the cleanse it is important to slowly reduce your intake of inflammatory foods such as coffee, refined sugar, and wheat and meat. This will help ease you into the juice cleanse, reduce headaches and sugar cravings and prepare your body. It is also recommended to increase your fluids by drinking enough water and enjoying fresh fruit pre-cleanse.

    It is a great idea to prepare yourself mentally and spiritually. Why? A cleanse, detox or change in diet is not just a physical challenge. You may find that the detox process makes you feel a rise and fall of different emotions. This is why it is important to block out the juicing days as days of healing and rest. Focussing on the positive energy, journal, listening to a motivational podcast, practicing a gentle yoga flow or doing meditation are all useful ways to support your body, mind and soul as your cleanse.
     

    During The Juice Cleanse

    No two juice cleanses are the same as our body will respond depending on it’s condition at the time. The good news is that juice cleanses can be 100% designed to suit your personal health requirements and you can usually choose the colour of the juice or the flavour profile for each day.

    A juice cleanse will have a nice range of different coloured juices with a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. It will typically finish with a milk alternative like almond or cashew milk sweetened by natural sugar from dates or cinnamon. In one day it is common to consume anywhere from 6 - 10 bottles of juice depending on the size of each bottle.
     

    After The Juice Cleanse

    Once the cleanse is over, eat lightly for a few days, gradually adding foods back in over the course of several days. Make a note of how you feel and journal down anything that worked for you as well as the challenges you overcame. Juicing is not meant to be punishment for the body, it should make you feel lighter and increase your focus, not bring you down. Be kind to yourself throughout this time and allow yourself forgiveness.

     

    Final Thoughts

    Putting your health first is an important step towards reaching new personal goals to be the best version of yourself. Raw, cold-pressed fruit and vegetables can give you a whole host of vitamins, antioxidants, and prebiotics in one single-serve!
