5 Reasons to Start the Year Sparkling Clear
Greene St Juice Co Founder - Natalie Warner offers her top 5 reasons why greeting the New Year with an organic juice cleanse is a good idea for vibrant health and vitality.
1. Let go of the old and welcome the new
Begin as you mean to go on… The ritual of juice cleansing in the New Year gives your body the opportunity to stop, reset and adjust after the festive season and helps to set the tone for your New Year… feeling in flow, resfreshed and revitalized.
A cleanse is also the perfect way to stop and evaluate which aspects of your lifestyle are no longer serving you. It gives you the time out you need to establish the healthy habit of saying “no” to anything that doesn’t truly nourish or enrich you in some way that you would rather not take with you into a fresh new year.
2. Amp up your immune system
There is no better way to amp up your immune system. 80% of your immune system is located in your digestive system, so efficiently alleviating the burden of built up toxins out of the system will dramatically boost your defenses.
Flooding your body with super nutrition on a juice cleanse has also been shown to regenerate the entire immune system!
Important: check that your juice cleanse is organic! This is the number 1 rule of cleansing. If It’s not organic, you are simply taking in a large volume of the same pesticides, herbicides, antibiotic residues and other toxins you are trying to clear our during the cleanse process (eeekkk!).
3. Reduce chronic inflammation and boost energy
A juice cleanse helps to tame inflammation which is the cause of many uncomfortable symptoms such as headaches, rashes, general aches, congested sinuses and chest, and bloating/cramping/gas. Inflammation is a major cause of chronic illness and disease and it begins in your gut. The starting point for repair is taking a load off the gut and detoxing your liver. Even after just 1 day on a juice cleanse you will begin to feel generally better, more vital and have better energy. After 7 days on a juice cleanse you will have reduced your pesticide exposure by 90%!
4. Major glow
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Summer is associated with the Fire element. To stay in balance with the season, cooling foods and drinking lots of pure, fresh water is recommended. A juice cleanse amps up proper hydration and soaks the body in skin loving vitamins and nutrients at the cellular level for a glow you can see from within!
5. Set healthy eating habits
A juice cleanse eliminates the habit of comfort eating, re-establishes a healthy relationship with food and makes you feel satiated with less food than usual. This provides the perfect kick-start to resetting healthy eating habits going into the New Year.
Bonus reason…get your body into fat burning mode!
Juice cleansing initiates a process which reduces your body’s reliance on sugar as a primary source of fuel and shifts to the breakdown and use of body fat for energy (think fat burning mode). This process has a host of other incredible benefits at the cellular level too. Most people experience this switch into fat burning mode at around Day 3 of a cleanse. At Greene Street Juice, you are armed with the information you need to harness the benefits of the body’s fat burning mode after the cleanse too, for healthy and sustainable results.
