Detox is removal of toxins, heavy metal and other unwanted materials from the body.
In essence, human body is capable of detoxing itself with liver, kidneys and intestines and it does so all day long. However the urban life exposes us to excessive amount of pollutants in the air and water and processed foods. When we consume foods like sugar, white flour, animal products and alcohol, we also take in substances like preservatives, hormones and toxins which overwork our detox systems. Juice cleanse programs help the system with the cleaning task as well as feeding the cells with all the nutritional goodness in the cold pressed juices.

How Being Overweight Or Obese Affects Your Health
Obesity increases the amount of sodium you retain which increases the pressure in your arteries. This increased pressure damages the arteries in your heart, brain, and kidneys. The higher your BMI, the harder your heart has to work to move blood against resistance. Losing 5-10% body weight can decrease your systolic blood pressure by 10mmHg, making it even more effective than some medications!
The leading cause of stroke is hypertension and one of the main drivers of hypertension is obesity. Obesity increases the amount of sodium you retain which increases pressure in your arteries and damages the arteries of your brain. Hypertension is called the “silent killer” because even though you may feel fine, your arteries are working harder than is sustainable. Losing 5-10% body weight can decrease your systolic blood pressure by 10mmHg and help with stroke prevention!
Obesity is the leading risk factor for type 2 diabetes. One of the main reasons is because obesity leads to a state of insulin resistance, which means cells in the body don’t use insulin properly. Women with a BMI of 30 or more have 28 times the risk of developing diabetes than a normal weight person. The risk is 93 times greater if your BMI is 35 or greater.
Fatty Liver Disease
Fatty liver disease is excessive fat tissue accumulation in the liver. It is state of liver inflammation and if not reversed, it can progress to scarring and permanent liver damage. People with a BMI ≥ 40 have a 90% chance of having fatty liver disease. Unfortunately today, it is becoming the most common indication for liver failure. There is no cure except weight loss.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Obesity is a strong risk factor for obstructive sleep apnea. Carrying extra weight can lead to breathing problems during sleep and someone who is not obese can begin to gain weight because of a sleep-breathing disorder that isn’t treated.
Losing 10% body weight can improve your sleep apnea by 50%!
