Fact is, juice cleanses don't really work.  You've heard celebrities and health nuts talk about them, but do they really know what they're talking about?

Juice Cleanses claim to rid the body of toxins and encourage weight loss but experts disagree with those claims. 

Although 40% of people have tried juice cleanses, experts question their effectiveness and safety.  They say, the human body already has a pretty good filtering system built in.  The liver and kidneys do a more than adequate job.  Plus, existing on nothing but juice for an extended period of time is may leave the body lacking of nutrients.  And if you do it with the anticipation of losing weight, won't happen.  Any weight loss is only temporary.


While some experts say that cleansing for a short period of time (like a few days) is safe, anything more than that could put your health at risk.
