How a Juice Cleanse Works?
Juice cleanses give your body a break from the constant consumption of food, including those food choices which may not be serving you well. During a cleanse we also encourage you to avoid other indulgences like caffeine, alcohol and sugar. At the same time as this respite, we provide you with an abundance of liquid nourishment from organic plant produce. The cumulative effect is the return of balance to the body and a true experience of health and wellbeing.
A well designed juice cleanse can help you alkalise, detoxify, energise and get your skin glowing from the inside out. Restoring wellness to your physical body can also exert a significant affect on your emotional, mental and spiritual health. As the days roll over, people often begin to notice a sense of lightness, renewed energy and vitality accompanied by enhanced clarity of thought and feelings of wellbeing.
Why Cold-Pressed Juice?
Orchard St. cold-pressed juice is made by passing the highest quality organic plants through a hydraulic press juicer. During this slow process the cell walls are gently broken down, exposing and releasing a power pack of nutrients within. Without the fibre remaining, these vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and oxygenated water are absorbed directly through your digestive tract, infusing your body with organic plant nutrition.
Why should I do one?
There are a myriad of reasons we might embark on a juice cleanse. For some this is feeling sluggish or bloated, for others it may be struggling to shift weight or to break a <coffee, sugar, alcohol, overeating> habit.
Exposure to a vast array of chemicals is the norm in today's world. It is estimated that everyone alive today carries within her or his body at least 700 contaminants, most of the effects of which most have not been well studied. Low energy, poor immunity, fatigue, allergies, weight gain and numerous other health conditions can all be directly related to the toxic effects of food and drink we consume, the environments in which we live and the level of stress we experience.
The body is a miraculous thing and will do its best to protect itself from the toxic burden our food, environment and lifestyle expose it to. Luckily we have organs whose primary functions are to process and protect us from the destructive effects of this exposure, so maybe it's time we gave them a little rest from their tough jobs and offered a helping hand.
