Liquid-Only Detox Cleanses: Not as "Juicy" As They Sound

Detox liquid cleanses have been around since the 1940’s, promoting the benefits of drinking only liquids to rid the body of toxins. There is little science supporting the benefits of these liquid-only detox diets, and if anything, the science has started to point to some adverse health consequences from these types of cleanses. However, people keep doing these types of liquid-only detoxes, because of the weight loss they see once they are done with them. 

Once someone resumes normal eating, the weight they lost comes back, and sometimes they even gain back more weight than they lost. Much of the weight loss achieved through these cleanses are the result from fluid loss due to low carbohydrate intake. Furthermore, the health risks of liquid detox cleanses rise as the frequency someone partakes in them. Numerous studies have shown that these liquid-only detox cleanses lower the body's basal metabolic rate as it struggles to conserve energy due to the strict reduced caloric intake and lack of nutrients put in the body. These diets lack basic components your body needs to function like protein, carbohydrates and other essential nutrients for normal body functions. The worst-case scenario is during one of these liquid only diets, you can develop something called metabolic acidosis, a disruption of the body's acid-base balance, and this can lead to a coma or even death. 

The point of a detox cleanse is to reduce the toxins in your body by taking away processed foods and helping your body reset, especially your liver. At Orenda International®, we view detox cleanses as a sustainable, whole food, vegan cleanse that will safely aid you in ridding your body of toxins.
