7 Reasons To Try A Juice Cleanse This ChristmasPublished Date:
As we cap this year off, don’t go crazy and forget to take care of your health! Partake in some of the best juice cleanses the fruit and veggie world has to offer.
December is a great time to get an early start on any New Year’s resolution you have planned. We’re not saying you have to hit the ground running before January starts – we’re saying you can use this time to assess your goals and make a plan to tackle them. What is the best juice cleanse for weight loss, hydration, immunity, or detox? Find out here!
Boosting Overall Health
The CDC reports that only 1 out of 10 adults get enough fruits or vegetables. While this study was done in 2015, there’s still some hard-hitting truth there that should not be ignored.
Non-vegan and non-vegetarian adults should really consider taking steps to get their daily recommended intake of fruits and veggies. The best juice cleanses provide you with the juice of natural, nutrient-dense produce without the addition of added sugars, sweeteners, or preservatives.
Through a juice cleanse, you can get some healthy nutrients flowing inside your body. If you’re not sure where to start or what you like, try a little of everything this Christmas and then stick to the ones that you enjoy drinking!

Managing a Healthy Weight
As the New Year approaches, many people have the same resolution to focus on improving their physical health. For some people, this means losing weight. If you want to shave off a few extra pounds, you can support your goals by trying the best juice cleanses for weight loss this Christmas.
Keep in mind that juice cleanses aren’t the best way to maintain long-term weight loss. Although many people experience some weight loss during a cleanse, they often regain those lost pounds once they resume their normal eating habits.
However, doing a juice cleanse for supporting weight loss can help you jumpstart your goals with a “clean slate” and a feeling of accomplishment. You’ll also be nourishing your body with extra vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants from all the fruits and veggies in your juices. This can help set you up for long-term success with making healthy dietary changes and adding more exercise to your lifestyle.
If you’re not a fan of “healthy tasting” fruit and veggie juices, you can start by slowly introducing your palate to sweeter natural flavors and incorporate them into cocktails or mocktails. The cold pressed juices found in our Healthy Holiday Cocktails & Mocktails Kit can make all your festive drinks a little better!
Staying Hydrated the Healthy Way
The best juice cleanses don’t take away from your overall hydration. Certain fruit and veggie juices are packed with electrolytes, helping you stay hydrated for longer!
If you take celery or apples, which are mostly water, and juice them, you get all their nutrients in a convenient, drinkable package. Some fruit and vegetable juices even come blended with coconut water, a.k.a. nature’s sports drink!
If you’re parched and would like a refreshing drink, consider fresh pressed juices instead of colas or other artificially sweetened drinks.
Sometimes we feel sluggish -- like we’re dragging our feet or using all our effort just to get through the day. During the Christmas holiday season, many people take time off from work, and it’s a great opportunity to give your body a reboot.
When you feel your body slowing town, it’s a way of telling you that maybe you aren’t eating right or getting enough rest. A juice cleanse may be beneficial and may play a huge role in helping you recover from all that stress!
So although the holidays are a great time to indulge in all the delicious, decadent food you love, just don’t forget to take care of yourself!
Control Your Appetite
Speaking of eating your fill, remember to control how much you eat! If you eat too much, you might end up with some tummy troubles. If that happens or you start feeling bloated, there are some juices can help with that.
Look for juices that contain ginger and turmeric, two potent anti-inflammatory ingredients that assist with digestion. Drinking a juice before meals can also help you feel more full so you’ll naturally eat less.
Get a Juice Boost
What’s the best juice cleanse kit for boosting immunity? That kit would have loads of vitamin C to help strengthen the body’s defenses. Orange juice will be part of that kit as well as hydrating and detoxifying juices.
So an immunity juice boost may help prevent colds and touches of flu. If you’re already down with a cold, you’ll also feel better by getting more fluids in. You know what they say: rest and fluids are the one-two combo for fighting the sniffles.
While we’re talking about getting a boost, fresh pressed juices contain natural sugars that can help give you energy for last-minute holiday shopping!
Support Natural Detoxing
What better way to end the year than by freeing and ridding yourself of all the bad stuff? Green juices like the ones you’ll find in the Deep Detox Green Juice Cleanse Kit may help with inflammation, too!
Traditional cleanses are all well and good, but getting a kit made especially for detoxifying is better. Your digestive system will thank you! Green juices with superfood ingredients like kale, spinach, celery, fennel, and spirulina help support your body’s natural detoxification process. Not only can you flush out the toxins from your body, but you can replenish essential nutrients by simply drinking the right juices.
