Why cleanse?
The scoop on juicing

Cleanses are all the rage right now. We got to talk to Certified Nutritionist Jasmine Scalesciani about why cleanses are beneficial and how to do them right. She also gave us some info about The Essential Cleanse, her 21-day cleanse, which starts on June 16. Here’s what she had to say:

Everything in our environment, including the air we breathe to the food we eat and the water we drink, carries toxins. We are constantly being exposed to some form of pollution.

Detoxing 2 to 4 times a year allows the body to return to its natural state of cleanliness. It can be viewed as an integral component of health and wellness that can lead to optimal health in today’s world.

By participating in The Essential Cleanse you will restore vitality and health to your whole system. People are often unable to lose weight and it might not necessarily be because of the foods they are eating. It has a lot to do with the toxins that they are carrying around in their body. The body stores excess toxins in fat cells in order to protect itself from this toxic environment.

This 21-Day Essential Cleanse will help eliminate hundreds of environmental toxins that have accumulated in tissues and fat deposits that could be contributing to weight-gain and premature aging.
