Healthy Food List #24: Best Nutrition For Juice Cleanses

Food list

Cleanse is a way to detox your body using a certain diet, to help reduce weight while removing toxins from your idea. Celebrities have made juice cleanses fashionable - just make the juice and you are good to go. At least that's the idea. Remember, juicing doesn't provide all the nutrition that our body needs on a daily basis.

Moreover, there is no proof that juicing removes more toxins from our body than it normally does everyday.
