Juice cleanses are diet plans comprised of fruit and vegetable-based juices and smoothies that replace your normal diet. Antidote’s 100% cold-pressed juice cleanses help benefit your nutrition, and can help you achieve weight loss and detoxification.
Juiced fruits and vegetables increase your consumption of raw enzymes, vitamins, trace minerals, antioxidants and other phytonutrients.
Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your next cleanse.
You can improve your overall health by drinking juices made from fruits and vegetables that are rich in minerals like potassium and vitamins like Vitamin C. It’s also a rich source of antioxidants, and plant compounds that may protect against disease.
They can help you feel more energetic thanks to anti-inflammatory compounds that augment your immunity, while healthy enzymes in juice can help with digestion too. Toxins can also be flushed out of the body when you drink healthy juices.
Juices can reduce your blood pressure and cholesterol levels and reduce your risk of heart disease. There’s even a lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease for people who drink juice three or more times each week.
Drinking juice is a delicious way to supplement your body’s intake of fruits and vegetables, especially if you find it hard to include them in your daily diet.
Cold-pressing works by steadily squeezing fruits and vegetables. These juices are more nutritious, because only the slightest amount of heat is involved so enzymes and nutrients aren’t destroyed.
Pasteurised juicing methods lose much of the vitamins and enzymes because of the high temperatures the fruits and vegetables are subjected to. To ensure harmful bacteria doesn’t grow during the packaging process, chemicals are added to the ingredients. However, these juices also lose the good bacteria along the way.
While being cheaper and faster, rotary or centrifugal juicers suffer from the same disadvantages. Fruits and vegetables oxidize faster because they are exposed to air while being spun and shredded by blades in the juicers, which also cause them to lose enzymes, vitamins and good bacteria.
Our juices don’t contain any added sugar, artificial colouring or preservatives. They should always be consumed within 3-5 days upon delivery and stored at the right temperature.
Juiced fruits and vegetables help you increase your consumption of raw enzymes, vitamins, trace minerals, antioxidants and other phytonutrients. Cleansing doesn’t just help you lose weight, it helps to remove toxins too. This enhances digestion, alleviates headaches and boosts your energy levels.

Your cleanse journey is unique and personal. The more processed food, caffeine and alcohol you have consumed in the past, the more you may experience detox symptoms. This is all part of the journey and a big step towards a healthier body. The symptoms you may experience include giddiness, constipation, diarrhoea and migraines. However, they should be mild and should not interrupt your normal daily routine.
Try to clear your schedule before your cleanse so that you may get enough rest and maximise its positive effects.
Pat yourself on the back for the great job done. Cleansing is challenging, especially for first-timers, and you have completed it. Continue to hydrate yourself well throughout the day. On the morning after your cleanse, drink a light smoothie to introduce some fiber back into your body. During lunch time, have light salads, fruit, vegetable soups or broths to ease solid food back into your system.
