Detoxify + Alkalize
Pure green goodness. The ingredients will detoxify, stripping your body of toxins from processed foods and life in general. Making your body more alkaline can help alleviate pain and health issues that have been linked with acidity. What’s your pH level?
Cellular + Liver Repair
There is something to be said for an apple a day. Packed with antioxidants that boost immunity, provide liver repair, and protect against environmental toxins, this smooth and sweet option also aides in digestive health. Your body will thank you.
Perfect for post workout muscle recovery. Leafy green vegetables are rich in folic acid, which is known to encourage relief of muscle soreness, and lemon supports collagen in muscle, cartilage and bones. No more excuses for avoiding the gym.
Antioxidants, please. Each component is packed with these free radical fighting combatants, which lead to healthy cells both inside and out. Plus, plenty of natural H2O and Vitamin C make for improved complexion, boosted collagen production, and a healthy glow.
The Beginner Juice Cleanse is an introduction to juice fasting that allows you to get through the cleanse more easily with a provided meal plan to complement the cleanse. It was designed specifically to be a no-fear, no-fail juice cleanse that teaches you how to combine food with juicing. Enjoy four juices per day in the order listed above every two hours until dinner. Repeat the same order for each day of the cleanse.
The juices in this regimen are low in sugar, meaning the juices are mostly vegetable-based. The sugar in fruit feeds yeast in the body causing lethargy and other symptoms often referred to as “detox effects”. It is actually stirring up the unhealthy system that is not used to a pure diet. All-fruit juices are not used for cleansing because of this potential adverse reaction for first time cleanser.
We have included recipes for preparing your cleanse dinner at home, however it is possible to enjoy a clean meal when dining out. We suggest a green salad with raw vegetables and lemon or lime juice as dressing. Avoid oils and vinegar. Oils impede digestion and vinegar increases internal acidity, hindering the cleansing process.
Those participating in a 5-day juice cleanse can enjoy a baked sweet potato or yam with a small pat of organic butter in addition to the salad. You may steam or sauté the vegetables for variety, but again, do not use oils or vinegar. We recommend stocking your fridge the day before the juice cleanse to have your dinner readily available.
Drink as much water as possible. No coffee or any caffeine. Herbal teas are a good supplement. Green tea should be decaffeinated. It is helpful to ween yourself off caffeine pre-cleanse and slowly reintroduce it into your diet post-cleanse. For optimal success, stick to a vegetarian diet and steer clear of red meat and cheese the week before and after the juice cleanse— they’re notorious for clogging the digestive tract.
Moderate exercise supports the detox process and can make cleansing more enjoyable. Unless you’re an experienced cleanser, strenuous exercise is not recommended. Stick to low-impact or no-impact activities such as walking, swimming, yoga or stretching. A light walk will gently encourage lymphatic circulation. Do not continue if you begin to feel dizzy.
