I have been dying to get a hold of these cleansing juices that most of the people in the internet and the artists have been drinking. All of these juices claims to be made with 100% real fruits. Sounds good right? No added sugar sounds too good to be true, right? Because nowadays, drinks have added sugar or sweeteners. But before explaining to you this cleansing juice that I have drank and has proven it to me that no sugar drinks actually exist, let me expound some details what juice cleanse means.
A juice cleanse is a type of diet that involves consuming only juices from vegetables and fruits in an attempt to lose weight and detoxify the body.
Now, you know about Juice Cleanse. So, let me share to you the drinks that I have drank and liked recently. Oh, by the way did I tell you that its home made?

JuiceItCebu sent me some juices to try from their menu. Ofcourse, I have chosen the drink based on my preferred taste.

What are actually the benefits of Juicing?
According to the advocates of juicing , by drinking freshly made juices, your body can absorb the nutrients better than eating whole fruits and vegetables and it gives your digestive system a rest from working on fiber. They say that juicing can reduce your risk of cancer, boost your immune system, help remove toxins from your body, aid digestion and help you lose weight. Fresh juices can give you a burst of energy and a clear mind.
What are the health benefits of fruits and vegetables in a juice cleanse?
✓ Spinach – It’s mild tasting yet packed with vitamins, has anti-cancerous properties, and is one of the healthiest foods on the planet
✓ Cucumber – since it’s 95% water, it’s an incredible detoxifier and helps with liver and kidney function.
✓ Carrots – known for being a good source of beta-carotene, fiber, vitamin K, and potassium. Carrots have been linked to lower cholesterol levels and improved eye health
✓ Apples – Helps to fight inflammation and heart health. As they also say, ” an apple a day keeps the doctor away”.
✓ Turmeric – anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties
✓ Ginger – aids in digestion and supports the immune system
✓ Celery – low in calorie since it is mostly water. It is a low-glycemic food and a good source of dietary fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin K.
✓ Lemon – one of the most important items to stock in your kitchen as it’s a highly effective cleansing agent and cuts through the bitterness of greens
What did happen?
I did a 3-Day Detox/Cleanse Challenge!
As I am writing this article right now, I am laughing at myself. Why? I did the juice cleanse all in the wrong ways. I did not prepare myself. (HAHA!) I did not do any research on how to properly do this. I gulp and gulp until there’s none left. To know the exact details, read below.
It was actually on a monday night when I drank my first JuiceItCebu drink and I was really into it. I even sipped a little bit in every flavors. (Yeah! I’m that kind of gal). My first drink was J1 (CARROT CLEANSE) and I really tasted the actual fruits. The combination of the carrots, cucumber and apple really blends well.
Then, I drank J4 (AGE MIRACLE), J1 (CARROT CLEANSE) and J3 (TROPICAL ZEST) on Day 2. It was so good that I was tempted to drink another bottle after the other but I did not give in. My bowel movements are all good and was not acting strange. I did not feel any headaches because I ate breakfast, lunch and dinner. Oh, dear me. A frequent encounter to the comfort room did not happen.
Last day came and my last drinks were J7 (RED FLASH) and J3 (TROPICAL ZEST) because I was saving the best for last. I know my fave drink now because I sipped at it already. The combination of the pineapple and mango were superb! It tastes amazing.
By the way, as I drank my last drink, I feel a little bit of pang because the cleanse will come to an end. That’s all I could think about.
To sum it all up, it was a total laughable experience for me but the juices tastes good for me. If I can try it again, I would say, “YES”, in a heartbeat.
