The seven-day juice cleanse

Juice is definitely one of the best ways to detoxify the body, lose weight, diminish bloating, clear up the complexion and improve bowel movement, among others.

While the world’s interest in health and wellness increases with every new virus that mutates, some of the simplest (and yet the most ancient) of practices are becoming more popular like juicing. There is a clamor to go back to the old traditions, thus a resurgence of time-tested practices which include organic farming, vegetarianism, slow-food movement and the like.

Should it interest you to try out this seven-day juice plan, you can expect basic changes in your body — from your daily lifestyle to food choices and, of course, to a more energetic you.
