What a name huh? The name lists the ingredients in order of quantity that make up this luscious cleansing juice. This carrot apple beet ginger juice is so satisfying.
Drinking fresh vegetable and fruit juices is a great way to deliver nutrients to your body. It is an ideal addition to your diet because these nutrients can be absorbed better and faster than if you were eating the vegetables and juices. However, juicing removes most of the beneficial fiber you would normally be consuming by eating, instead of drinking, the produce.
Many people have varying opinions on juicing. Especially, on juice cleanses. I personally have found short juice cleanses to be extremely effective. I did my first 3-day juice cleanse as a last resort to bronchial sickness. An urgent care clinician prescribed me a Z-Pak antibiotics, which were not effective. Desperate to a solution, a friend recommended a juice fast. The idea is that it delivers nutrients to your system fast while giving you digestive system (and your whole body) a break. This break from your digestive system is helpful because your body is able to route your resources towards fitting your illness. After 3 short days my sickness was gone.
Since then, I’ve done a few more juice fasts/cleanses. The longest fast I did was 10 days. At the end I felt brilliant, my mental fogginess was gone. I felt extreme emotional and mental clarity and had increased energy. This carrot apple ginger juice is a standby for me.
