Coming into warmer months after a long winter is a completely new energy path – both in nature and in our bodies. We see this change in budding green shoots, can smell it in the air, and we can also feel it within ourselves – that desire to move more, get outside more in the sunshine, be more energetic.
Sometimes feeling that new burst of springtime energy can take a while – we might be dragging ourselves into new seasons with feelings of sluggishness. The good news is that there are many ways we can help ourselves along as seasons change. Simple actions like drinking more water and adding some lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to our glasses in the morning, upping our intake of fruit and veggies and moving away from heavier foods, inviting more oxygen into our lungs with certain breathing practices, focusing on springtime yoga sequences and getting outside to do whatever exercise takes your fancy.
One way to help us feel less sluggish is to try a detox-focused juice cleanse!
A juice cleanse involves a diet with a specific timeframe of specially chosen, nutrient-dense vegetables and fruit in order to detoxify the body and promote weight loss. This type of program has become increasingly popular in recent years as people look for ways to lead healthier lifestyles. If you’re thinking about embarking on a juice cleanse, you may be wondering which program is right for you. Here are six of the best juice cleanses in Australia.

With less than 5% fructose in every juice and made from organic ingredients, all cleanses come with a cleanse guide booklet and a specific cleanse flyer to ensure that you undertake the juicing safely.

Detoxifying your body with fresh fruit and vegetable juices may be an effective way to promote better health and encourage weight loss. If you’re planning to embark on a juice cleanse, there are plenty of great programmes to choose from in Australia. Consider your goals and preferences carefully before selecting a programme so that you can make the most out of your experience. Also be aware that there may be some dangers to juicing, and the science around its benefits is mixed, so if you are unsure if a juice cleanse is for you, contact your GP.
