Whether you’re just jumping on the healthy living train (good for you), or you have been leading a healthy lifestyle for years, a juice cleanse is one of the best choices you can make for your body.

I love a 24 hour cleanse as a reset for my energy and metabolism.

A mini 24-hour juice cleanse is a great starting point, and will jumpstart your wellness, push out toxins and diseased cells, and nourish good cells that are starved of nutrients. A juice cleanse also lets your digestive system, one of the most important parts of your body, take a much-needed break and regenerate.

Of course, it may sound brutal drinking only fruits and veggies for an entire day and forgoing the food, but the magnificent benefits outweigh any discomfort you may experience. It’s natural to experience side effects such as bad breath and body odor, stomach cramps, nausea, weakness, exhaustion and foul-smelling stools. And if these side effects make you weary of fasting, just think of all the toxins that are wreaking havoc on your body. Those toxins are stuck in your cells unless you cleanse. If this isn’t your first rodeo, your side effects should not be as noticeable.

Before starting this cleanse, be sure to purchase a juicer. I recommend VitaminX, but it’s not necessary to spend that much if you’re willing to cut up your produce into smaller pieces. You can juice all recipes in the morning and store in the fridge, or you can make a juice at each meal. I recommend glass Mason jars to store juice.

Be sure to also have lots of water available as well as herbal tea to drink throughout the day. Be prepared to limit physical exertion.
