There is no time like now to start incorporating green juice fasts into your normal diet. This deliciously packed drink is mainly made up of all green leafy vegetables, fruit, seaweed (nori strips), spirulina and tender coconut water. It helps us to feel and experience new energy levels and awareness. This goes hand in hand with the journey that yoga takes us on and is wonderful for meditation.
All you need is a champion juicer and the right attitude to enable you to love doing it. Even if it is only done once a week for a full day, it has numerous benefits and will change your life:

• It reduces the burden on the digestive system, allowing it to heal
• Green juice eliminates drugs, chemicals and pesticides
• It also eliminates most food allergies and sensitivities
• Juicing enhances mental, spiritual and physical wellbeing
• It increases mental clarity
• Green juice fasting increases energy
• Prevents chronic diseases caused by poor diet and lifestyle
• Gives you glowing skin and helps you to lose weight
• Gives the body a rest from constantly working on absorption and elimination as it is in liquid form, so the body does not have to use so much energy while digesting
• Also clears any mucous discharge
