7 Benefits of a Juice Cleanse

We speak to Maison de Lunel, a boutique detox and yoga retreat in France, about the benefits of a juice cleanse. A juice cleanse helps to detoxify and replenish the body with the help of raw, cold-pressed fruit and vegetable juices. Instead of eating, a juice detox will give your digestive system a rest in order to help your body assimilate the correct nutrients whilst removing toxins. At Maison de Lunel, their programme offer comprises of a refreshing glass of warm lemon water when you wake up followed by two shot-glass juices, three large juices or smoothies, and a nourishing soup in the evening.

1. Healthy Weight Loss

Juice cleanses can be a powerful gateway to a more balanced diet and a sustainable, healthier you. When you replace processed foods, refined carbohydrates, dairy, alcohol and caffeine with fresh cold-pressed juices, you will naturally lose weight. What's more a juice cleanse will reduce your appetite and help to release food cravings, particularly cravings of nutrient-poor comfort foods.

2. Boost Your Energy

Juicing is a great way to flood your body with nutrients in their natural state, it also means that they are easily absorbed into the bloodstream, creating clean, lasting energy. This type of energy is very different to the highs and lows you experience with sugar or caffeine!

3. Improve Your Digestion

A juice cleanse is a wonderful way to quickly and effectively reset your gut. Juicing significantly reduces the amount of stress placed on your digestive system (we spend around 70% of our energy everyday digesting and assimilating food), allowing it the chance to heal and recharge, while also absorbing essential vitamins and phytonutrients.

4. Decrease Inflammation & Boost Immunity

Studies have shown that a juice cleanse supports the body in several ways: by eliminating stored toxins; flooding the body with vital nutrients that lower inflammation; and supporting you with new healthier lifestyle habits. As the body’s vital organs cleanse and restore, this helps to bolster a strong immune system, essential for fighting off illness and disease in the body.

5. Glowing, Radiant Skin

More than 50 per cent of the population consumes less than the recommended daily requirement of liquids. A juice cleanse often results in glowing skin and clear shining eyes! On a cleanse, the skin will flush out excess oils and hydrate efficiently. 

6. Mental & Spiritual Clarity

Cleansing promotes stronger mental clarity. Unhealthy foods that are essentially void of nutrients leave you feeling lethargic and tend to trigger brain fog. A juice cleanse is a powerful way to bring you into mental focus and increase your concentration.

7. Reduce Stress & Improve Sleep

Juicing is a natural way to help lower cortisol levels that cause stress and anxiety. Leafy green vegetables, for example, are high in magnesium, a relaxing mineral that can lower stress and help improve sleep quality. A juice cleanse combined with a retreat is the perfect combination to really tackle stress and insomnia.
