Plenish Clense Review
I have never been one for detoxing, I suppose it is quite a subjective matter. Although I do try to make weekly juices with my home juicer. So, when I found Plenish juices, I couldn't resist trying them after reading about all the healthy ingredients they contained, which I didn't own to juice myself.
Over on the Plenish website, there's a whole ton of info about which juice detox is right for you, and guidelines of what you do. I chose the following three juices, which are part of the level two detox.
Pine Apple 2 - Pineapple, Apple, Mint, Aloe Vera
This was the first juice I tried, and in fact it turned out to be my favourite. The name gives a very fruity and sweet impression, yet I was surprised when the small amount of mint overpowered this taste to leave a cool taste.
Mind Body Green - Cucumber, Pear, Romaine, Kale, Spinach, Parsley, Lemon
My immediate reaction was that this was disgusting, but after a few more sips I guess I somehow became immune to the taste. I found that this was very watery which probably helped to lower the strong taste but just beware of the after taste, you made need another drink at the ready.
Sweet Sexy Green- Pear, Cucumber, Romaine, Spinach, Kale, Basil, Brocoli
Unfortunately this juice was unlike the others, and I really didn't get along with it. I managed three sips before my stomach churned and I had to give up with this one.
Now, you're supposed to drink all six of these throughout one day, however, still being a teenager, my parents advised I started off lightly, substituting a juice a day instead of my average breakfast (of two unhealthy pan-au-chocolat). I think it is just important to remember that you are the one in control of how regularly and how much you determine to detox, and obviously you should be the one to make this decision.
Anyway, after six juice breakfasts (there were two of each flavour), I am happy to say that I did notice positive results. My sleeping pattern became a lot more stable- I was waking up at around 8 each morning (and this was in my holidays!). Also, my skin inhabited a brighter glow. Not all of these juices may taste heavenly, but it's worth holding your nose and gulping down the goodness when needs be.
Have any of you ever tried a juice cleanse? Succeeded?
