WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Juice up! Cleansing the body with organic fruit and vegetable juices has been popular for a few years now and you can get involved at Clean Juice in Wilmington.

“All of our cleanses are made with our cold press,” Clean Juice general manager Katie Clark said. “All organic, no preservatives, no pesticides, we don’t pasteurize, so it’s really easy for your body to digest all of that nutrients and it’s absorbed right into your bloodstream so it can really just flood your body with all that good.”

Clark says the cleanses give the body a rest and reset, a sort of detox. There are many different options to choose from.

“You can do a one day cleanse, a two day cleanse, all the way up to five days or as many as you’d like,” Clark said. “Each day looks the same and you’ll have six 16 ounce organic juices and then you just drink a ton of water in between and they’re all different flavors and they’re so, so good.”

Clark says her customers have reported many different health benefits.

“Weight loss is something that we have a lot of people come back and say that they’ve experienced,” Clark said. “We have a lot of people that leave cleanses just really craving those fruits and vegetables that they flooded their body with throughout the days. There’s just so many benefits.”

Clark recommends you reserve a cleanse in advance so the shop will have your juice ready when you come in.
