The resting of your digestive system while still ingesting an enormous amount of vitamins and minerals is very powerful for generating healing on your body.
Your body gets the same benefits of water fasting without starvation.
Sometimes starvation is good, believe it or not, but in most cases you can heal yourself without going that far with a juice fast.
Many people who juice for at least three days experience:
- Higher mental clarity – If you find yourself feeling cloudy sometimes, juicing will increase your mental alertness.
- Weight loss – Push yourself off a plateau or jump-start your weight loss journey.
- Elimination of addictions – If you find it hard to say no, going “cold turkey” will help you get a handle on your addictions.
- Better hair – More vitamins mean glossier and better hair that grows faster.
- Improved skin – Many people eliminate acne and even psoriasis with a juice fast.
- Brighter eyes – Regular juicers seem to have whiter eyes than those who don’t.
- Lowered blood pressure – If you have issues with high blood pressure, a juice fast can eliminate stress on your organs and decrease your blood pressure.
The benefits of juicing correlate to the length of time you choose to juice. It’s important to be mindful of how you feel during the experience to ensure that you’re not having any symptoms of danger.
Some people who have underlying health issues that they did not know about, will realize it during a juice. This can include hypoglycemia.
That’s why it’s important to pay attention to how you feel, and don’t be afraid to break your fast earlier than you planned with fresh fruit or dates.
To experience the best benefits from the juice fast, juice only organic produce, in a masticating juicer that will not heat up the juice past 105 degrees Fahrenheit.
You want it to stay cold or room temperature in order to keep the active digestive enzymes working. The sooner you drink the juice after preparing, the more benefits you’ll receive from it.
