The romance of unhealthy foods is powerful, as evidenced by the 65 percent of Europeans who struggle daily with being overweight and obese. Butitis essentialto break the cycle of dependence on saturated fats,refined carbohydrates, processed foods, and excess caffeine and alcohol. Research going back decades, has shown us that we can not only be healthier, but actually reverse even severe chronic disease by changing to a plant-based diet.
In addition to breaking the cycle of cravings of foods that undermine your health, just three days of a juice cleanse can do so much more! Here a few of the undisputed benefits of significant health enhancements you can obtain with a proper juice cleanse program.
Ease food decision-making
Juicing focuses on consuming fresh whole food produce every few hours and reduces the enslavement of thinking constantly about what the next meal is going to be. Not only do we feel sated, but realise we are no longer slaves to our addictions with (often very harmful) foods
Floods our body with super nutrition
Being on an all-produce diet gives us not only the vitamins and minerals but the all-important phytonutrients that are powerhouses for the clean- up and healing process. Juices are by nature raw foods and retain nutrients that would be destroyed by cooking, including some B vitamins and especially (digestive and anti-inflammatory) enzymes.
As you are feeling better and having more energy, you also naturally lose weight. Some of this is water bloat, but also some is fat. A juice cleanse (three days minimum) is a great way to jump start a diet. It not only helps control appetite and cravings, but is naturally lower in calories, while supplying the body with probably more concentrated beneficial energizing and healing nutrients than it has seen before.
Reduce physical problems
You begin to feel generally better, not just with your energy, but with many chronic symptoms such as headaches, rashes, general aches, congested sinuses and chest, and bloating/cramping/gas. Too much of the time our body is fighting off the things we do to it (especially with food but also with lack of sleep, inactivity and stress). Take a break, rest the body (and mind) and flood it with nutrients.
Allow maximum detoxification
To optimally support all phases of the body’s natural detox process, you need a very broad range of plant-supplied nutrients like anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories. By providing the body with super-nutrient dense foods juicing allows the body to have more of the resources it needs to support the phases of detoxification, and even to begin to help remove the cumulative toxins stored in the body—130 industrial chemicals on average in a European person’s bloodstream.
Heal our cells
Switching to an fresh, plant-based diet allows cells to work optimally to re-establish efficient internal messaging and manufacturing processes, allowing the mitochondria to create energy without having to fight off a plethora of free radicals, inflammation, and reducing some of the impediments to proper DNA functioning.
