Myth: Drinking Juice Cleanses Will Make You Have Optimal Health
Truth: People would like to think that having a juice cleanse is a great way to get all the impurities and toxins out of your system, but that’s not the case. That function is already completed by the liver and kidneys and excreted your waste. Having cleanses does not provide anything else to help your liver and kidneys. In fact, they can actually do a lot of harm.
A juice cleanse forces your body to purge (also known as diarrhea), which essentially sweeps all the essential nutrients out of your body. The process can also leave you feeling dehydrated, and that’s not a good state to be in. If you want to keep your body as “clean” as possible, exercise regularly, drink enough water, and minimize how much processed foods you eat. Your body will thank you for it.
