I have been wanting to do a cleanse for such a long time, but I have always been unsure of which one to tackle and even more uncertain about how to survive one. You always hear these horror stories about how the newest trending detox will land you in your bathroom for 72 hours straight….good Lord, I’ll never make it. Yet for all the scary stories behind the detoxing trend there are the benefits that a good cleanse can do for your body. That my friends, is what has brought me here. So, to kick things off I decided to do a little background check on some of the options that are out there and even did a little sampling of some of the best brands in the business.
A few things I was certain of from the beginning of this crazy idea: I want to cleanse for a max of 3 days, I want to do a juice cleanse, and I want the option to take in fruits and veggies throughout the day if I so desire. Ok, so now what? My first step into the cleanse world actually fell into my lap when I was at Whole Foods this past weekend. I never noticed that Whole Foods was home to some really good juice cleanse brands not to mention they have a whole line of organic juices themselves! In doing my research online for the best detox system to go with I commonly ran into a few brand names such as Liquiteria and the infamous BluePrint Cleanse. I could easily see why these were such front-runners in the game of detox. Not only are they friendly to the idea of consuming juices that cater to both your palette and your dietary habits, but hey also have various drinks built to focus on different concentrations (skin, energy, etc..).
Another option that peaked my interest was to use actual juicing as a form of a cleanse. So rather, than go through a real detox program which will remove the toxins from your system, you can use various juices and a small, yet well balanced diet to clean your body. This is where companies like Evolution Fresh and Vita Coco come in. They can be used in actual juicing recipes or on their own to replace snacks/meals. They are packed with vegetables, nutrients, and defenses your body needs and to be honest, most of them taste better. I even got to please my Zen obsessed soul when I ran into these amazing Kombucha drinks by GT’s Kombucha/Synergy which are made to both nourish and enlighten your body. Oh, how Buddha would be proud.
I’m so excited to get started with this cleansing process. Let me know if you have any advice, comments on products listed, or even recommendations!Pin It
