Juju Cleanse

I've heard of this cleanse as early as last year. Read about it in magazines. And even on twitter. I checked out its website but I didn't try it only because I felt that the price was prohibitive (read: pricey). 

Intrigue and necessity snapped me out of my hesitation. The former brought out the curious in me as so many people have claimed improved well-being. Necessity, on the other hand, is what really prodded me. If I can't be thin on my wedding day. At least I'd want to be really glowing. Nice skin and all. 

So, what is Juju Cleanse? The long and short of it -- juice fast. "Each of our Juju Cleanse kits contain a day’s worth of detoxifying drinks which keep you nourished while you put aside your spoon and fork for the day and give your digestive system that much needed break, " quoted from its website.

"In a nutshell, the Juju Cleanse program is designed to give your body a break, so that it can focus on digesting nutrients and flushing out the junk. It also promotes alkalinity in the body to reduce the foothold of the nasties." -  from the Juju Cleanse webpage.To know more, click here

For starters, we got a barkada package -- Zarah, Febz and I are all in this together. This means 3 people on the same address would want to try the one-day cleanse program. We're excited and at the same time apprehensive. What if we can't last a day with only liquid in our body? 

Today is our pre-cleanse day. Guideline says, we have to limit our intake of: proteins, carbonated and caffeinated  drinks. What? Coffee means life to my blood stream. Lol. 
I hope I last the day without a drop of it.


At least one day before beginning your cleanse, we suggest you reduce your intake of the following to prepare your body:
  1. Animal protein and processed foods
  2. Salt, refined sugar and carbs
  3. Carbonated sodas, and other caffeinated drinks
  4. Alcohol and nicotine
We then recommend that you increase your intake of:
  1. Water or herbal teas
  2. Fruit and vegetables
  3. Sleep
Tomorrow, I hope to wake up with all the determination and will-power I can muster. What is one-whole day of cleansing and detoxification when you think about the amount of rubbish we put into our mouths and into our digestive system. I believe that my internal sewerage system is beginning to clog up. Indeed, it's about time to deliberately remove all the toxins in my body. 
Hello, Juju Cleanse. Goodbye, toxins!
The idea has now become real. We just received our kits. Nice eh? It's a thermal bag; the juices need to be refrigerated so while in transit all the juice bottles have to be in this bag with gel ice to maintain it's freshness.
