It is 2020 and juice cleanses are mainstream! What was once a secret rite of hard core vegans and those fighting serious illness is a celebrity go-to for a quick weight loss fix. There are many reasons people opt for a juice cleanse but we believe the best one is to help your gut rest and recover.
More than 2,000 years ago Hippocrates said “all disease begins in the gut” and we’re only now coming to understand just how right he was. Research over the past two decades has revealed that gut health is critical to overall health, and that an unhealthy gut contributes to a wide range of diseases. The gastrointestinal (GI) tract is a crucial part of our physiology and its health determines our overall health and feelings of happiness. Aside from being the site of nutrient absorption, our digestive system is responsible for our immune system and acts as a major source of neurotransmitters – the chemicals that determine our emotional state. Gut health has been linked to our learning capacity and memory, depression and anxiety, bone formation, neurological functions, and much more.
Enter a juice cleanse. Or rather, the name we prefer - a juice BREAK! Just like our minds and muscles need a time out, so does our digestive track. Especially after the holidays when we tend to indulge in sweet treats, rich foods, and alcohol. A juice break simply means you give your tummy a rest from breaking down fibres, protein and other foods that require energy to digest. Cold pressed pure vegetable juices are packed with life-giving nutrients that boost the activity of enzymes and nourish the body's most important detoxifying organs—the liver, the lungs, the kidneys, and the colon—so they can do their jobs better and more efficiently. All the while, because these life giving veggies are in juice form, they require little work from the body to absorb. So while you return to work after the holidays, let your tummy recover. A juice break may help to restore your gut health, renew your sense of energy, diminish your cravings for unhealthy foods, and added bonus - make your skin glow!
After the party and the after party comes the juice party! The one where your tummy goes AHHHHH!
