What is a juice cleanse?
A juice cleanse is the process of fasting while consuming only water and raw liquids from fruits and vegetables. A fast will force your body to rid itself of damaged and dysfunctional cells while simultaneously creating new cells through a process called autophagy. Scientist, Yoshinori Ohsumi was accredited the Nobel prize for discovering this process. And the live enzymes, vitamins, and other nutrients from our juices will nourish your body and assist you naturally into a healthier state.
Why juice cleanse?
From what we eat to the air we breathe, everyday we are bombarded with toxins and free radicals that DAMAGE our cells! Introducing antioxidant-rich, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY raw juices into our diet helps combat the poisons and rejuvenate us towards optimal health. Our bodies are cleverly designed to heal, detox, and rebuild. But too often we are overloading our bodies beyond its natural functions and instead our bodies are using most of our energy breaking down solid food.
How long should I cleanse for?
That's really up to you! We usually recommend a 3 to 4 day cleanse every 4 months just to keep your system in check. Autophagy typically happens after 3 days. That's when your body will feed on it's own damaged, diseased, and dead cells while replacing it with new healthy ones! Studies have shown that even a 16 hour fast (cleanse till dinner) can have benefits. And if you're really up for a challenge, try a 10-15 day cleanse! Today's standard diet norms has us eating in excess. That's why a temporary fast from solid food may seem extreme, when in reality, fasting has been used throughout history.
We recommend that you come in daily to pick up your cleanse that way you can always get a fresh batch! Since our juice is raw and unpasteurized, we can only give 2 or 3 days at a time.
Why an Earthcraft cleanse?
NO Hpp! Most of the “juices” on the market (even organic juices) have been high pressure processed which will preserve it for almost a month! Those products lose out on nourishment value along with live enzymes. No one wants to drink old, dead juice. That’s why we cold-press our juice daily and in small batches! Our method will always guarantee you a fresh bottle of nutrients as well as the live enzymes that are vital for your absorption of vitamins (remember, our enzyme bank is limited, and the only way to replenish it is through raw foods). We also like to include many different and exotic super food ingredients in our juices. These ingredients are commonly ranked at the top of their nutrient density and anti-oxidant content. Your taste buds will love it and your body will use it!
