We’re no strangers to being slightly fatigued and bloated after a weekend of revenge eating and drinking.
While a few Negronis and some hearty grub is definitely food for the soul, we can’t say the same about the gut – thus, enter the juice cleanse.
While its effectiveness for weight loss might be debated, a juice cleanse done properly can give your body an opportunity to heal and detoxify.
So, to help you navigate the treacherous terrain of juice cleanses, here are our top recommendations.
Ega Juice Clinic
Focused on finding your body’s natural balance, Ega Juice Clinic’s thoughtfully crafted juice cleanse plans follow the principles of Ayurveda.
Most of their cold pressed juices (which come in recyclable glass bottles) contain natural Ayurvedic ingredients like turmeric, ginger, lemon, and amla (Indian gooseberry) which have myriad health benefits including strengthening the immune system, countering inflammation, and enhancing metabolism.
Their programs (starting at $100 for a one-day cleanse) are also specifically tailored to your Ayurvedic body type, so you can expect to get the most out of your cleanse.
