When done in a proper manner, an extended juice fast or even shorter, more frequent juice fasts can get your health back on track. Juice fasts offer up tremendous health benefits and can possibly reduce or even reverse many health issues.
What happens during a juice fast?
During a juice fast, your body is flooded with nutrients from fresh juices. In the absence of solid foods, the body begins to release its toxins and replaces them instead with wholesome nutrients from fresh juices. A juice fast is a time of cleansing and a lot of repairs, healing and nourishment take place inside your body.
The theory behind a juice fast
It’s quite simple, really. For three to seven days, you replace all meals and snacks with juices made from fruits and vegetables; the more organic the fruits and vegetables the better. The theory is that when your body is freed, or takes a break from, digesting solid food it can more efficiently release toxins from your system. Juice fasts rest the stomach and the liver, the latter being very important as the liver is our main detoxifying organ. It is also important to drink plenty of water during a juice fast to flush toxins and wastes out more efficiently.
When a juice fast is done properly, chances are you will find that at the end of your three or seven days you will feel physically weak. However, rest assured that a lot of healing has taken place inside of your body.

Juice fasts are not only good for the body, but also good for the mind. Juice fasts increase neuro-transmissions, enhancing the receptiveness of the brain and nervous system.

As toxins are eliminated, you will notice that your body begins to feel new and that you have more energy than before. As the liver and kidneys are cleansed, nutrients begin to flow freely throughout the body resulting in the skin having a shiny glow. Fresh juices are high in potassium, and potassium helps cleanse the body of excess sodium that causes water retention. Potassium aids in ridding the body of excess water, which also enables you to shed a few pounds.
