6 Reasons You Should Ditch Your Juice Cleanse

Juicing detox

There’s no shortage of celebrities and influencers hawking a special juice cleanse or detoxing tea that claims to give a full-body detox. But what if we told you that “juicing” to detox is basically a run-of-the-mill diet trend? 

In this blog, we’ll debunk five common myths about juicing and give you more effective and healthy ways to detox. 

Here are five reasons you might want to ditch this trendy health fad — and never look back!

MYTH #1. Juice cleanses are a cost-effective method to detox.

The truth is… Juicing is super costly unless you’re Martha Stewart and know how to use every scrap for good. You’ll need a lot of fruit and vegetables! Like three large oranges to make 6 oz. of juice. You do the math! Also, juicers don’t run cheap — a good one will cost at least a few hundred bucks.

MYTH #2. Juicing can eliminate toxins and give you a full-body detox.

The truth is… Your body already naturally detoxes itself with built-in detoxification systems, which include the liver, kidneys and lymphatic system. Plus, there really is no scientific evidence to support the claim that juice cleanses or other forms of juicing can effectively “detox” your body. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is the most effective way to support your body’s natural detoxification processes. 

MYTH #3. Juice is healthy because it’s made from fruit and vegetables.

The truth is… An actual piece of fruit is way better than just the juice — even if it’s fresh-squeezed. For one, juices lack certain key nutrients, such as protein, insoluble fiber and healthy fats. And your body can’t effectively detox without these essential nutrients. 

MYTH #4. Juicing is a quick fix to get healthy.

The truth is… Juicing will never take the place of regular exercise, adequate sleep, stress management and a balanced diet. Basically, all the essentials for a healthy lifestyle. Actually, juicing can be a healthy addition to a balanced diet, but it’s not a replacement for whole foods. Lastly, there’s no quick fix to anything — especially getting healthy. It’s a long consistent journey!

MYTH #5. Juice cleanses are a great way to lose weight.

The truth is…While juicing may lead to weight loss, it’s only going to be short-lived. The weight you’re losing is typically due to a reduction in calorie intake and water weight. Not toxins. In the long term, juicing is not a sustainable weight loss strategy. You may even gain weight if you’re not careful!

MYTH #6. Juicing is a cure-all for illness and disease.

The truth is… Juicing will not cure cancer or prevent acne. While the nutrients in fruits and vegetables are beneficial to your overall health and wellness, there is no scientific evidence to support the claim that juicing can cure or prevent illnesses or diseases.

The bottom line…

We’re not completely saying “no,” to juice cleanses— there are actually many benefits to your health. However, we are giving juicing a HARD NO for detoxing. It just doesn’t work! Yes, you may lose a couple of pounds juicing, but the truth of the matter is that most juice cleanses are high in sugar which will actually slow your metabolism. So juicing may actually work against you if it’s your sole method to lose weight. 

Don’t forget — the best way to support your body’s natural detoxification processes is to maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
