I love to eat. Seeing my recent blog posts, I guess you’ve learned that about me already. I try to exercise at home and choose healthy food but it doesn’t mean that the toxins in my body are flushed out everyday. I’m scared for it to accumulate inside me and cause health problems someday.
I have been hearing about juice cleanses from celebrities and some of my yoga-mates. Now that’s something I haven’t tried yet! I researched the most heard-of juice cleanses—Juju Cleanse. They deliver a day’s worth of detoxifying drinks to your doorstep a day before your juice fasting. I visited their site and read on their cause, the benefits of cleansing and the convenience they offer when you order from them. The juices they produce are a bit expensive but I know my body needs them (I’ve been gaining a few pounds and I honestly don’t know why).
What are the benefits of cleansing?
EASY ABSORPTION. Drinking is easier on your body than eating is, as enzymes, vitamins, and minerals can be absorbed directly into your bloodstream. The energy that would otherwise have gone towards digestion can then be redirected to detoxifying or cleansing.
REHYDRATION. Most people don’t drink enough during the day. Juju fixes that.
ALKALINE RESTORATION. Juju Cleanse promotes the alkalinity of body fluids essential for proper immune and metabolic function. Vitamins, minerals, enzymes, oh my. Their program is full of the necessary goodies to get your body back in form.
CLEANSING ACTION. The juice cleanse has a laxative effect which will help your body rid itself of toxins and improve one’s metabolism.
WEIGHT LOSS. Some will lose more weight than others but this is a direct benefit due to the cleansing action of the juices.

I’ve decided I wanted to try level 3 day 1 of Juju Cleanse. I skipped over levels 1 and 2 since I think my body can take it already. Juju delivers 6 bottles. The higher the level, the higher the ratio of vegetable juices to fruit juices is. That makes it harder. It’s normal for us to take in fruits because of the fruit shakes we usually order when we eat out. On the other hand, it’s not everyday that we can drink a vegetable shake.
To prepare for my detox tomorrow, I ate lightly today. The anticipation is good and it seems like I’m starting to be friends with my appetite. I don’t eat too much or too little. :)
Around 3:30pm, my Juju package arrived! It’s cute and simple.
My Juju package came in this white insulated canvas bag that you can bring anywhere especially if you have an appointment on the day of the cleanse. The bag includes a guide on when to take the juices. The pack also includes mint leaves that you can make into a tea on the morning of the cleanse. That is for the people who wants something hot in the morning. There is also a reusable ice pack inside. This keeps the juices cold in transit and can also be reused as a heat pack after the cleanse.
The bottles offer great colors for our fridge :) Also, glass bottles are good for the juice and easier to reuse.

I’m 3/4s done over with my one-day cleanse and I miss food already! It was a bad idea to do this cleanse on a Sunday when I have meals with my family. Those are the meals I don’t wanna skip. But oh well.. Cleansing is good for me and it might make me weak if I do it on a weekday.
Five of my six bottles are of only one kind: The Green Bomb
Since alkalinity is what Juju Cleanse is after, the green bomb is the way to go. This elixir of assorted green vegetables loads you up with important nutrients and enzymes that our bodies desperately need to keep alive and well down to the cellular level.
This is not your ordinary lemonade. This version packs extra heat and health to every sip with cayenne pepper. This drink aims not only to swing your body pH into a more alkaline state but to speed up your metabolism as well.
The drinks are relatively easy to ingest. I don’t find them gross so there’s really no problem when it comes to the drinking. After a couple of hours, my tummy begins to rumble and I know I want to eat already. Good thing the juices are scheduled to be taken every two and a half hours. My hunger is quickly satiated. It’s a bit difficult especially for a food lover like me, not to chew anything throughout the day. I cannot say that I’ll do cleansing anytime in the future because I love eating too much.
What I love about Juju Cleanse is that it helps people be healthier AND it also helps the planet be cleaner. It’s like a vacuum cleaner for both the body and Earth. Everything about the package that they delivered can be recycled or reused. It cannot get any better than that!
But for those who want to give their bodies a one-day break from all the toxins it gets everyday, try Juju Cleanse. ;)
