Starting a 24-hour cleanse does not seem like such a smart idea when on a cold Monday morning, I find myself staring down into a cup of lukewarm gloop. Grainy and viscous, the concoction of powdered live enzymes and lukewarm water is the first stage of Pure Earth’s enzyme cleanse. Reminding myself of the supposed benefits, which range from improved gut-health and better digestion to increased mental clarity, I take a tentative sip of the liquid.
It is thick, cloying and unpalatable, and despite the clear instructions to drink it quickly before it thickens, I cannot swallow the solution fast enough so it rapidly turns into a dense paste which I then have to spoon into my mouth. Not the serene start that I had imagined.
Designed to detox, reset your metabolism and improve your gut-health, Pure Earth’s 24-hour enzyme cleanse – which is supported by a tasty post-cleanse broth, gut-smoothing kefir waters and zingy hot shots – combines a range of powdered, liquid and tablet enzyme supplements that work to expel harmful toxins while getting your body back to peak condition.
