Whichever route you select, following a diet of juice and broth for a few days seasonally is associated with a number of health benefits:
The Digestive System is given a rest.
Our digestive system is always working to break down the food we consume. While this is its job, high levels of stress, processed foods, meat, and general overeating can overwhelm our gut. This can lead to bloating, irritation, and general lethargy. When we limit our calorie intake for a brief period of time, the digestive system is given a chance to “catch up”. By consuming juice and broth for a short period of time gives our bodies the time to heal and recharge, while also taking in essential vitamins and phytonutrients.
Our energy levels are given a boost.
Juice cleansing floods your body with nutrients in their natural state creating a lasting, clean energy; not the ups and downs and crashes we can get from coffee and sugar. With the addition of broth, we further balance our blood sugar by providing essential amino acids and fat to further support the nervous system. Furthermore, protein supports the body’s ability to repair itself. This combination provides a sustainable energy source from our body being well supported from our diet.
Inflammation in the body is lowered.
Studies have shown that juice cleanses followed by a high vegetable, low processed foods diet can greatly reduce inflammation in your body. We’re living in a time of chronic inflammation; from the air we breathe, from meat, dairy, alcohol and processed foods that we eat, to the products that we use. Our body responds to all of these stressors with inflammation (heat, redness, swelling, and pain). When we lower our intake of these offending external factors and add beneficial nutrients readily available in cold-pressed juice and broth, we’re allowing our body to repair and work optimally.
We’re better hydrated.
More than 50% of people are dehydrated – consuming less than the recommended daily 5-6 glasses of non-caffeinated, beverages. Drinking adequate fluids like water, herbal tea, bone broth, and low sugar, cold-pressed juice helps the body function more efficiently, improves energy, and helps remove toxins more effectively. Drinking water throughout the day, even while on this cleanse helps keep everything moving. Hydration also makes your skin glow. Regular hydration helps remove toxins while juice and broth help bring your cells healing nutrients that can transform how you feel and look. Get ready for that Cleansing glow!
