Attention Men! You Can’t Ignore These Juice Cleanse Benefits
There are many amazing benefits to juice cleansing…just ask The Incredible Hulk
The modern man in 2022 puts a fair bit of time, effort, and dosh into looking after himself these days, and why wouldn't we?
That’s why we’re doing our duty here at PRESS to inform you of amazing juice cleanse benefits that you simply can’t ignore.
Juicing/cleansing/detoxing…whatever you want to call it…isn’t just a fad or something you do once in a while at an expensive health retreat.
No, it’s now become an effective health hack for men who are serious about properly looking after their bodies and transforming their health.
Movie star Edward Norton (aka The Incredible Hulk) is one of them. He raves about juice cleansing – and when The Incredible Hulk speaks, we listen.
Of course, we live and breathe the finest cold-pressed juices here at PRESS but in this article we wanted to share some of the key juice cleanse benefits that men can experience.
1. Optimise Your Fitness & Sporting Performance
Into keeping fit and looking after your body? Then juicing is your friend.
Whether you play five-a-side football with your mates, go to the gym a few times a week, like running outdoors, or even play sport professionally, introducing cold-pressed juices into your world is the smartest of moves.
Why? The nutrients densely packed within these drinks are the tools your body needs to recover properly, and reduce muscle soreness etc.
Twenty-five runners were involved in a study in 2011 where they ate blueberries every day for six weeks to see how it affected their performance and recovery.
The results showed that the fruit boosted the immune system, countered oxidative stress, and increased anti-inflammatory cytokines…all of which are essential to recovery and maintaining top performance.
Green drinks in particular, such as our Daily Sweet Greens, provide next level support for your body. It contains seven anti-inflammatory fruits and vegetables, which work together to help soothe inflamed muscle tissue, helping you get back to your best condition more quickly.
2. Bulletproof Your Body
You may feel bulletproof after drinking one of our cold-pressed juices – but don’t go testing it out. Just in case.
No, what we’re saying is that drinking these fresh juices are like bullet-proofing yourself because they bolster the immune system.
Packed with vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, freshly-pressed fruits and vegetables strengthen the body and help it to deal with any bugs and viruses floating around.
It’s well known that vitamin C is a vital nutrient for supporting the functioning of your immune system. Citrus fruits, such as lemons and oranges, are particularly high in vitamin C and these are often key ingredient in juice cleansing.
3. Improve Digestion: Cleanse For Gut Health
Did you end up in Heartburn Central the last time you had pizza after a few beers?
And have you recreated that toilet scene from Dumb and Dumber once or twice when your belly wasn’t in a good mood?
Digestive problems are increasingly common now, especially in our busy, stressful lives. IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) now affects roughly 3.2 million people in the UK, according to digestive charity Guts UK.
But you can reduce symptoms and take charge of your digestive health by diving deep into juice cleansing.
Doing a juice cleanse – even if it’s just for a couple of days – is extremely beneficial for your gut health for two main reasons.
One – loading up on these nutritious juices instead of dense meals eases the strain on an overworked digestive system. The fibre has been removed from the fruits and vegetables and all the juicy goodness is easily absorbed by the body.
Two – many juice varieties are anti-inflammatory, helping to soothe the digestive tract and ease symptoms. Celery juice is in a league of its own when it comes to digestive support, with studies showing that it contains compounds which are anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and antibacterial.
4. Freshen Up From The Inside Out
We’ve all nearly knocked ourselves out with our morning breath after a heavy night on the booze, let’s be honest guys.
Bad breath, strong body odour, and stools that smell, erm, extra funky are all signs that your body is overloaded with toxins.
We live in a 21st century world filled with chemicals in our food, water, cleaning products, and environment, and therefore it’s virtually impossible not to accumulate various toxins.
But a smart guy is a clean and fresh guy who gives his liver and kidneys a helping hand to expel those toxins.
One of the most effective – and tastiest ways – to detox and freshen yourself up from the inside out is through a juice cleanse.
Not only are these cold-pressed juices brimming with antioxidants, which fight bacteria and other unwanted invaders, many dark green vegetables contain another key cleansing nutrient – chlorophyll.
Chlorophyll is well-known as ‘nature’s deodoriser’ because it helps detoxify the blood, eliminates fungus in the body, and supports healthy liver function.
5. Look Your Best…The Natural Way
Using expensive hair wax is common, so is slapping on the moisturiser after a shave…heck, some guys are even using trendy trimmers these days to keep things nice and tidy down below.
Nothing wrong with any of it. Every self-respecting gentleman in 2022 takes good care of himself. It’s no wonder the male grooming industry was estimated at £500m in 2019.
But if you really want to look your best – and do it the natural way – then you can guess what we’re gonna say next, eh?
Juice cleansing is the way to go because the removal of toxins, and influx of vitamins and minerals from the juices, naturally leads to clearer skin, healthier hair etc.
Complex B vitamins, along with zinc, play a role in hair follicle health, while zinc plays a part in hair growth.
6. Prevent Needless Trips To The Doctor
Chronic health conditions are rampant in the UK, primarily down to a poor diet, and vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
Dr Shireen Kassam, who founded the Plant Based Health Professionals network, says that diet-related illnesses are at an all-time high and going vegan could save the struggling NHS billions.
The doctor referenced a recent study in Taiwan which found that vegetarians have a lower rate of outpatient visits to the doctor because of healthier diets, which tend to be higher in vegetables, fruits, and wholegrains.
Meanwhile, more than half of all UK adults (63%) were classed as being overweight or obese in 2021. Obesity and being overweight is the UK’s biggest cause of cancer after smoking, according to Cancer Research UK.
You don’t have to go all-out vegan or vegetarian to improve your health. By introducing more cold-pressed juices into your diet, and recharging your body with a juice cleanse – even if it’s just one or two days per month – you’ll go a long way to preventing needless trips to the doctor.
7. Skyrocket Your Energy Levels
Just by starting the day with a freshly-pressed juice instead of a heavy breakfast (i.e., rolls and bacon, scrambled eggs, coffee etc), you’ll feel an immediate lift in energy levels.
Firstly, your digestive system will not be forced into overdrive early in the day to break down a large meal – which frees up more energy reserves in the body.
Also, the natural sugars will keep your blood sugar levels ticking along nicely, while your body also receives a very generous dose of all-important vitamins and minerals that are essential for optimal health.
If you go a step further and get stuck into a 3-day, 5-day, and maybe even a 7-day (hardcore) juice cleanse, then you’ll effectively clear out toxins, enhancing your health and wellbeing further.
One of the main juice cleanse benefits is that energy crashes and power-naps mid-afternoon usually become a thing of the past.
Is that enough convincing on the many juice cleansing benefits for your health and wellness? We hope so because our wide range of juices and cleansing programmes are off the scale…and seriously in demand right now.
Here’s the best part: we’ve recently introduced a custom cleanse builder, which allows you to pick and choose from all of our nutrient-packed juices to formulate a plan that best suit your tastebuds.
