Feeling the Thirst? The Ultimate Juice-Cleansing Guide

The diet trend nowadays appears to be heading towards juice cleansing or, in other words, the process of detoxing the body through juice. From the “green-machine” beverages which contain kale and green apples to pure carrot drinks, many people are finding the appeal in these juices for three-day cleanses.

You might wonder: just exactly does the juice-cleansing process work, in terms of detoxing one’s body? There are many reasons, but a few essential ones include eliminating gluten and dairy foods (which tend to make one bloated and sluggish), fortifying the liver by letting it “rest” from detoxification, and getting rid of toxins and chemicals in the bloodstream. People have also reported feeling more “clean,” energetic, and happier after a juice cleanse, helping to keep their diet on track.

In this article, we offer a few simple juice recipes that not only will help you get rid of waste in your body, but also boost your health through its packed nutrients and vitamins. Let’s get juicing!
