JUICING for Detoxification

Detoxification may lead to being tempted by the promise of a juice cleanse. Also known as a juice fast or juice detox, these regimens—involve consuming fruit and vegetable juices, sometimes in combination with plant milk, in place of solid food.

The juices are often “cold pressed,” which means they’re made by using pressure to extract the juice from fresh fruits and vegetables. The process doesn’t use heat or oxygen, which companies say helps to preserve the nutrients.

A juice cleanse is a type of diet that involves consuming only juices from vegetables and fruits.

Fruit and vegetable juices are high in nutrients and can play a crucial role in balanced diets. Some people believe that only consuming these juices for a period can help “cleanse” the system and provide various health benefits.

Key points about the juice cleanse:

  • Advocates claim that juice cleanses can help remove toxins from the body and aid weight loss.

  • There is insufficient evidence to support the benefit of juice-based diets.

  • Research has linked liquid diets with an increased risk of serious health complications and eating disorders.

Juice cleanses usually involve consuming only juice for a certain period. Many juice-based diets last less than 2 weeks. However, some programs may last longer.

However, regardless of length, juice diets are dangerous, and a person should only consume a liquid-only diet under medical supervision.

  • Juice fasting is different for everyone. Some dieters experience increased energy and stamina, better sleep, weight loss, and enhanced mental focus from the first few days. Others report nausea, fatigue, headaches, poor sleep, and lethargy.

  • Start with a two- or three-day fast to see how your body reacts. If you have diabetes or other health conditions, talk to your doctor before starting a juice fast. Consume a variety of fruit and vegetable juices to boost your nutrient intake and get more antioxidants in your diet.
