Early morning workouts, late-night meetings, cocktails and dinner parties… Hong Kong is a work hard, play hard city that never seems to stop. To get back into optimum shape— mentally and physically— many people swear by juice cleanses.
While there is no hard medical evidence to support the effectiveness of a juice detox, a recent study conducted by UCLA supports what many advocates have been saying for years: when used in moderation, a juice cleanse can boost digestion, balance flora and improve cardiovascular health.
By replacing normal meals with a carefully planned series of cold-pressed vegetable juices, you allow the digestive system time to rest, flush the liver with antioxidants and cut out harmful stimulants like alcohol and caffeine. These detoxes can also help break the cycle of cravings and food panics, letting you get back in touch your body’s needs – not just its wants.
Are you ready to supercharge your system and jump start your wellness goals? Take a look at our favourite Hong Kong juice cleanses and find the perfect detox for your lifestyle.

A great introductory cleanse, you can also sign up for ‘subscriptions’ that will keep you on track for weeks with regular, complimentary deliveries. Plans begin at HK$980 for five days.
