Cleansing is good for your body for many reasons. First, it gives your digestive system a chance to rest and recharge. Our air, water, food, and cosmetics can contain substances that are harmful. Replacing regular meals with cold-pressed juices and whole foods floods your body with healthful vitamins and nutrients, allowing it to release toxins. As Alejandro Junger, M.D. explains, “Humans have always instinctually known that a regular period of resting and recharging the body will let it shed the accumulated toxins and waste materials that tend to build up in all of us simply from living.” Cleansers report feeling refreshed with greater energy, mental clarity, and an overall sense of “feeling better.” Some report modest weight loss and glowing skin. Finally, cleansing also reinvigorates your taste buds. By removing chemicals, pesticides, and processed food from your diet, your taste buds will fully taste what you’re eating.
