We have partnered with THE JUICE KITCHEN to supply us with fresh organic cold pressed vegetable and fruit juices and delicious superfood smoothies.
Fresh juice provides us with a natural source and healthy dose of vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids. Making fresh juice part of your daily diet can help with increased energy, a strengthened immune system and maintaining overall health.
1-day, 3-day, 5-day and 7-day Detox Programmes Available.
In addition to The Juice Kitchen’s freshly pressed juices, they also do a range of detox packages. Recipes were put together in collaboration with doctors, dieticians, athletes, homeopaths and the input of Juice Kitchen customers! There are 1-day, 3-day, 5-day and 7-day detox programmes available.
During this first stage your blood sugar will drop to below 70 mg/dl. Your body will convert liver glycogen into glucose, which will then be released into your bloodstream in an effort to restore the body’s normal blood sugar levels. After approximately 12 hours your body will reduce its basal metabolic rate, thereby lowering your blood pressure, further glycogen is then taken from muscle.
The body does this to conserve energy. Most people feel the benefits of a juice cleanse from as early as the first day, with increased energy and alertness, though if your diet has been poor prior to starting the cleanse you may feel a little weak during this first stage, but this should last no longer than 3 days.
Weight loss during this period is usually around 1.4kg
Stage two (days 3 - 7)
Stage two is a period of internal cleansing and healing for your entire body. With a nearly inactive digestive tract, there will be an increase in the activity of your immune system and white blood cells.
Your body will be drawing energy for this process from fat stores and toxic cells. These are broken down to provide glycerol from the glyceride molecules and these are then converted into glucose. Your colon is also undergoing repair and any impacted faeces will start to loosen. Colonic irrigation can quickly assist by removing all undigested food remaining in your colon. Your desire to eat should now have completely subsided.
Your energy levels should be high, with glowing skin and a flatter tummy. Weight loss during this period is usually between 2.3 – 5.5kg.
During the detox, please try drink water, preferably with fresh slices of lemon in the water between your juices. This will aid the cleanse process.
After the Detox
By the end of the detox, your hunger cravings would have diminished compared to the first couple of days. Your body will now be used to what you are putting into it.
After the detox, do not pile straight into carbs and meat! Eat fruits, vegetables and salad the day after you finish.
On the second day, continue with the salads, but you can introduce some protein in the form of avocados, eggs and tuna.
Day three after the detox, you can now eat meats, chicken and fish… and some carb’s if you wish.
On all three days, continue with fruit, veg and lots of lemon water!
