Normally, there are two main major benefits of juice fasting. But let get to the main meaning of juice fasting.

Juice fasting, also known as detoxing entails consuming juices from fruits and vegetables for a period of time. Juice fasts can be as short as 24 hours or as long as 10 days.

Juicing takes the pulp out of fruits or vegetables with a juicer unlike blending where the pulp is mixed with the fruit.

A well-designed juice cleanse can help you reach your health goals, whether you want to lose weight, detoxify or reduce your risk of disease.

According to MyPlate (the current nutrition guide published by the United States Department of Agriculture or USDA), any 100 percent vegetable juice or fruit juice counts as a member of the vegetable or juice group


Prepare for the Fast. Before detoxing, you should prepare your body and mind because If you proceed right into your fast from an unhealthy diet, you may feel sick from the detox symptoms.

Aim to drink a fixed amount of juice per day. During a juice fast, you should aim to drink at least six 16-ounce servings of juice.

Plan your fruits and veggies(Recipes)

Bananas are one of the best fruit sources of vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 from bananas is easily absorbed by your body and a medium-sized banana can provide about a quarter of your daily vitamin B6 needs. Potassium in bananas is also good for your heart health and blood pressure

Green Apples –reduces inflammation, lowers cholesterol, and increases energy

Ginger – aids in digestion, reduces pain, improves the immune system

Cucumber – lowers blood pressure, promotes healthy skin, prevents some forms of cancer

Avoid strenuous physical activity.

Strenuous activities include swimming laps, aerobics, calisthenics, running, jogging, basketball, cycling on hills.

Read labels on packaged juices.

Always read ingredients and sugar content if you buy packaged juice. For example, Green Machine contains a whopping 53 grams of sugar in a 15.2-ounce bottle

Drink it immediately.

While preparing your juice oxygen exposure can lower a freshly squeezed juice’s nutrient content. If you make your own juice or buy one from a store, drink it as soon as you can. If not, store it in an airtight container or fridge.

Fasting improves the absorption of nutrients. Juice, a food in predigested form, is like a healthy blood transfusion, where you fill your blood with enzymes, vitamins, minerals, sugars, and proteins.

  1. Body Nourishment
    Provided that our bodies are healthy, we can get all the nutrition we need from fruits, vegetables, and other foods we eat — provided that they too are healthy. However, our digestive tracts are often inflamed from overeating, food additives, stress, and the use of medications. As a result, our bodies are not able to efficiently absorb all the nutrients they need.
  1. Body Cleansing
    Actually, a juice fasting diet itself does not cleanse your body. Your body cleanses itself. Juice fasting just gives your digestive system a rest, allowing your body to redirect the energy normally used for digestion towards taking care of “house cleaning chores” – otherwise known as detoxification.

Specific Detox Benefits of a Juice Fasting Diet

  • Your body and internal organs have an opportunity to rebuild – the whole body becomes cleaner
  • Mental clarity improves
  • You are getting rid of excessive weight without flabbiness
  • Your energy increases
  • You will most likely need less sleep and will feel more refreshed in the morning
  • Immunity is strengthened
  • Healing is accelerated
  • Your skin becomes soft and silky
  • You’ll experience greater ease of movement
  • Breathing becomes fuller, freer, and deeper
  • Taste buds clear up and taste senses are retrained back to more healthy food
  • Metabolism improves; cell oxygenation is being restored
  • Fecal matter in the colon is being dissolved and passes out of the body more frequently
  • Your digestive system gets rejuvenated and becomes more effective; the peristaltic action of the intestines becomes stronger
  • Detoxification that occurs during detox is eliminating those things that allow the disease to set in: fat cells, arterial cholesterol plaques, mucus, tumors, and stored up worries and emotions
  • Body fat is breaking down and releasing fat-stored chemicals (such as pesticides, drugs, etc.), which will re-enter the blood and then be eliminated
  • Elimination of toxins will speed up and the rate of incoming toxins will be reduced —with a net result of accelerated reduction of total body toxicity
  • Fats in body fluids decrease and, as a result, your blood becomes thinner and the oxygenation of tissues and movement of white blood cells becomes more efficient.

Juiced fruits and vegetables don’t have protein, fiber, and many important nutrients your body needs. check with your doctor before changing your diet for a couple of days.
