Will a juice cleanse will ‘detox’ you after an unhealthy eating binge?

Posted 26 May 2017

The myth of the juice cleanse is a stubborn one – and one frequently promoted by celebrities – but it’s both wrong and unhealthy.

First of all, your body naturally removes harmful chemicals through the liver, kidneys, and gastrointestinal tract – there’s nothing about juice that will hurry that process along.

Secondly, juicing is mostly a way of removing helpful fibre from fruits and vegetables – many sugary fruit juices are as bad for you as sodas. You’re making the fruit less healthy by ‘juicing’ it.
