5 (Convincing) Reasons to Kick Off The Year With a Juice Cleanse

You’re going to need the energy if you want to travel the world…

Don’t be put off by the word cleanse, it not only helps control appetite and cravings but is naturally lower in calories, so it provides more concentrated nutrients than we would normally eat over the same amount of time. People who have tried juicing sometimes complain about getting headaches and missing chewing, but they’ve also lived to revel in that third-day euphoria too, so it’s a worthy challenge.

Normal Off-the-Shelf Juices versus Cold-Pressed Juices
Cold-pressed juices use a specific cold press juicer–a state of the art slow-hydraulic press that slowly presses as many vital nutrients from the produce as possible. This system does not produce or use heat in the extraction process or allow high volumes of oxidation. This means that acold-pressed juice can retain up to five times the nutrients, vitamins, and enzymes of a usual store-bought juice.

So essentially, when you buy any juice off the shelf, it’s already turned to (natural) sugar as the fruits/vegetables have started breaking down all their inner essentials.
