What's up with juice cleanses?

[gallery]

Juice cleanses are a big deal right now. We are seeing more and more people partake in them, just like PumpUp Member dray who made this absolutely mouth-watering juice with cucumbers, spinach, kale, celery, apples, and lemon. Juice cleanses are also super controversial. 

Advocates say: a juice cleans unleashes natural healing power, rids your body of toxins, and floods your system with powerful nutrients and antioxidants. 

Others disagree saying, that it is not sustainable, your body doesn’t get the necessary protein, fibre, and carbohydrates, and you will be left with minimal energy, and it can mess with your digestive system.
