Drinking juices is a great way to get easily absorbable nutrients into your body that you might not otherwise consume. Juicing can also help protect against pollutants and inflammatory diseases. Drinking Juices is so beneficial to your health and this is why! Here are benefits of juice cleansing.
1. More Energy
By drinking only juice, your digestive system gets a break. So all of that energy used to break down food will now be freed up and you will feel way more energy.
2. Clearer Complexion
When we ingest foods that are processed or some animal products, it reeks havoc on our colon. It all builds up in the colon. This can come out through the skin causing inflammation in the skin. Clearing out the colon by drinking juices can keep your skin clear and glowing.
3. Losing Weight
When you do not ingest foods and you only drink juice, the pounds naturally flow off, you are consuming less calories. All the junk will be released from your gut.
4. Improve Immunity
Our digestive system is connected to our immunity. When we clean up our digestive system, we can help make our immune system stronger.
5. Form a New Relationship with Food
While taking a break from solid food, you are able to see what comes up for you when you don’t consume foods that might give you comfort. This is a way to see if we are satisfied without food or if we are using it for emotional reasons.
6. Reset your Taste Buds
When you drink only juice it changes what your taste buds crave. It helps us reestablish our taste for flavor. There are many different juice combinations that are beneficial to the detoxing process as well as to bring nutrients to your body. I have created some juicing recipes in the Recipe Book.
