CLEANSING can be one of the healthiest things you do for your body.
Ancient civilizations knew that cleansing promoted physical health and mental clarity. Today, however, juice cleanses and other detox programs have (with the help of celebrities and social media) re-emerged into the public eye. Medical science has added to the conversation with specific studies that support the concept that calculated caloric restriction can improve health, well being, promote anti-aging, life extension and buttress the body’s immune system.
Simply stated, cleansing is spring cleaning the body. And, JOJ’s raw cold pressed juice-cleanses are a simple way to detoxify and spring clean the body at a cellular level. JOJ’s combination of specially formulated raw organic juices help flush out toxins and boost the immune system. It floods the body with vitamins, minerals and living enzymes while using little energy to assimilate essential building blocks; allowing the body’s autopilot to rebuild, renew and heal. Juice cleansing is a simple and effective way to hit the body’s reboot button. JOJ’s unique cleanses (e.g., “soft boot”, “hard boot”, or “x-boot”) provide an easy and natural detox.
Some of our friends are critical of juice cleansing and argue that the human body has a built-in detox system. In this, they are correct. Where our friends’ argument falls short, however, is that the body, likewise, has an immune system. Yet, surprisingly, we still get sick and suffer from disease (and even look to pharmaceutical antibiotics to help the body’s “built-in” immune system fight infection). And, unfortunately for some of us, well, we suffer life-long sequelae from the illness or disease. So, yes, in a perfect world, the immune system would prevent and protect us from illness and disease. And, in a perfect world, the body’s built-in detox system would effectively self-cleanse and detox. But, we do not live in a perfect world (and yes, our friends’ avail themselves to antibiotics). In fact, we live in a world where our water, air and [processed] food is adulterated with pesticides, herbicides and a host of other toxic man-made chemicals that can cause damage at a cellular level. Thus, with a constant, unabating bombardment of the aforementioned toxins and other toxic compounds (some we cannot identify), our bodies are in a constant struggle to naturally remove and discard unwelcome and harmful elements. Now, that is where (just) organic juice cleansing enters the stage … happy to help the human body’s built in detox system reboot and cleanse naturally, the way the body was designed to self-cleanse (in a perfect world).
