Why You Should Do a Juice Cleanse and How to Make It Work for You

There’s a lot of contradictory information out there when it comes to juice cleanses. People either love them or hate them. They’re either good for you or they’re bad for you. Some people say they make you feel amazing, others say they leave you feeling like crap. So what’s the real deal? In this blog post, we’ll cut through the noise and go over everything you need to know about going on a juice cleanse and why it might be a good fit for you.

Why people do a juice cleanse

There are lots of different reasons people decide to do a juice cleanse. Some people do it for medical reasons, others do it for body transformation, and others do it for spiritual reasons. Here are some of the most common reasons people do a juice cleanse: 

  • To detox and cleanse their bodies
  • To lose weight
  • To improve their skin
  • To feel more energized
  • To reduce inflammation
  • To control their blood sugar 
  • To improve their digestion
  • To have more mental clarity
  • To have more mental and emotional clarity 

There are many other reasons people choose to do a juice cleanse, but these are some of the most common. There are also lots of different types of cleanses people do. Some cleanses are more intense than others and have different durations and protocols. There are also different ways to approach a cleanse, such as intermittent fasting versus the 7-day cleanse. You can do a juice cleanse for a few days or for a few months depending on what you’re hoping to achieve.

What is a juice cleanse?

A juice cleanse is when you consume only fresh fruit and vegetable juices for anywhere between a few days to a few weeks. There are many different types of cleanses, but a juice cleanse is the one we hear most about. There are lots of different ways to approach a juice cleanse and lots of different durations depending on your goals. You can do a juice cleanse one time and it’ll be over in a few days, you can do a juice cleanse once a year, or you can do a juice cleanse once a month. There are also different types of cleanse protocols which we’ll go into more detail below.

How to make a juice cleanse work for you

There’s no one size fits all when it comes to cleanses. You can either do a 3-day Weekend cleanse, a 5-day cleanse or a 7-day cleanse, or you can do a one-day cleanse. You can either do a full juice cleanse where you only consume fresh juice or you can do a partial cleanse where you consume fresh juice and eat some whole food. You can even do a combination cleanse where you do a few days of only juice followed by a few days of only whole food. It’s really up to you and what you’re hoping to achieve. If you’ve never tried a juice cleanse before and don’t know what to expect, it’s always best to start with a shorter cleanse. A five-day cleanse is a good place to start for your first cleanse. This will give you enough time to see the benefits of the cleanse but it’s not so long that you get bored or frustrated with it.

Things to consider before committing to a juice cleanse

  • How committed are you? It’s important to go into a cleanse with the right mindset. If you go in halfheartedly, it will reflect in your results. You need to go into it with a clear intention of why you’re doing it and what you’re hoping to achieve. 
  • What’s your goal? Ask yourself what you’re hoping to achieve with the cleanse. Are you doing it for weight loss, for better digestion, or for clearer skin? You may want to consider a different cleanse than someone else who is doing a cleanse for weight loss. 
  • What’s your budget? Purchasing fresh fruit and vegetables from your local supermarket can be costly. Do some research and see where you can find affordable produce to do your cleanse. One Co.’s juice cleanse packages and subscriptions are an excellent option which are easily affordable. 
  • What’s your schedule? It’s important to consider your schedule when doing any kind of cleanse. If you work full-time, you may not have enough time to squeeze in a 7-day cleanse. Keep these points in mind when deciding if a cleanse is right for you.


Here are some of the most common questions people have when they’re considering going on a juice cleanse. 

  • How many servings of produce do I need to consume each day? This will vary depending on which cleanse you choose to do and on your individual goals and needs.
  •  Where do I get my produce? You can either purchase your produce from the supermarket, buy a juicer and juice it yourself, or you can purchase bottled juices, as well as predesigned cleanses from One Co – view some options here.
  •  What should I expect when I go on a juice cleanse? You may experience some mild symptoms when you first start your cleanse. This is your body’s way of ridding itself of toxins and impurities. 
  • How do I maintain the benefits I got from the cleanse? You can maintain the benefits you gained from the cleanse by eating a healthy diet and doing regular exercise. 
  • Is a juice cleanse safe for pregnant women? A juice cleanse is not safe for pregnant women because it’s not nutritionally balanced and it can lead to nutritional deficiencies.

Bottom line

A juice cleanse can be a great way to kick-start a healthy eating plan, to jumpstart weight loss, or to detox your body and mind. There are lots of different types of cleanses and there are also lots of different ways to approach a cleanse. You can do a juice cleanse as a one-time thing, or you can do one every so often as a way to maintain a healthy and balanced diet. No matter what you decide to do, make sure you do your research and get advice from a health professional before starting a juice cleanse. The best time to do a juice cleanse is in preparation for the New Year, when you’re trying to make healthy changes. It’s a great way to clear your system and give your body and mind a fresh start for the year ahead.
