Master Cleanse – Not A Safe Body Cleanse

master cleanse 2The Lemon Cayenne Maple Syrup Clenase also known as the Master Cleanse detox diet to most people, while others call it the maple syrup detox, water and lemon detox just to name a few. In actual fact is has three main ingredients, Lemons, Organic Maple Syrup and Cayenne pepper so really it should be called the lemon cayenne maple syrup cleanse.

This is the typical fasting lemonade diet that is home made because the ingredients are easy to get and the drink is easy to make using a very inexpensive budget. It can be made a head of time and placed in the fridge until needed which makes it easy when your on the fly.

This simple body cleanse drink will give some amazing results in the area of weight loss, no surprise here as you are fasting really. Typical fasting can be anywhere from 10 days to as many as 40 days.

Although there are other health benefits associated with this type body cleanse, include improving skin complexion, and increases energy, it’s really not a save body detox at all and most of the goods are outweighed by the negative side effects.

Before I explain the negatives, let me first give a little more detail into the three main ingredients that form the Lemon Cayenne Maple Syrup Cleanse as do realize that many people will still do this type of cleanse regardless of what I explain.

1. – Lemon juice.  Use freshly squeezed lemons, organic if possible. DO NOT USE – The bottled lemon juice as it contains sugar and other additives that are not beneficial for detox. Add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice to regular size bottle of water.

2. – Organic maple syrup
.  DO NOT USE sugar filled syrup as it too will not be beneficial to your cleanse. You really want to use organic maple syrup, although it will cost a bit more it allot better for your body. Add 2 tablespoons to the lemon and water detox drink.

3. – Ground cayenne pepper
.  I know what you are thinking…Not the most interesting ingredient? Actually the cayenne pepper won’t burn or taste that bad as the lemon juice will naturally neutralize the hot sensation and make it not taste so bad.  Add 1/10 of a teaspoon of cayenne pepper to the bottle of lemon juice, maple syrup drink.

This Lemon Cayenne Maple Syrup Cleanse has proven to be effective for over fifty years for some people.

Beyonce_Knowles_in_DreamgirlsJust recently this type of body cleanse hit the spot light when singer Beyonce Knowles reportedly used what she called her “Lemonade Diet” to lose 20 pounds in preparation for her role as Dina in the movie Dream Girls.

She reportedly told China Daily, “Back in the sixties, models like Twiggy were popular and I knew Deena would have been thin then, so even though I really love eating, it was necessary to lose weight really fast because we shot Deena at 16 and Deena at 36 two weeks apart.”

Now for the negative effects according to Dr. Marc who wrote many interesting articles on the negative effects of the master cleanse.

He claims that users of this diet will lose weight because of severe calorie restriction. Be aware though that part of this weight loss is also water loss and dehydration due to the laxative effects of the diet. Severe calorie restriction will cause your metabolism to shut down as your body goes into starvation and survival mode.

Once the diet is over, you will quickly regain the weight and possibly more as your resting metabolism is slower due to the loss of metabolically active muscle lost during the fast.

According to Dr. Marc the Master Cleanser will actually cause toxins to build up, by depleting glutathione liver stores, the major detoxifying antioxidant produced by your body. Additionally the laxative effect caused by the diet will further acidify your blood and this can cause a profound metabolic acidosis. He reports that he personally treated a number of patients in the Emergency Room, who presented symptoms of weakness, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea as a result of the Master Cleanse. Contrary to popular belief these “detox” symptoms are actually a result of a build up of toxins due to glutathione depletion, dehydration and a profound metabolic acidosis.

Dr. Marc also stated that a patient, whose acidosis and dehydration did not respond to IV fluid resuscitation, required admission to the hospital.

This type of Master Cleanse diet is particularly dangerous if used, as the inadequate nutrition will weaken, not strengthen, your immune system.

There are a few really good systems for a safe body cleanse that will give you more benefits then the Master Cleanse without starving yourself and damaging you liver.

Play it safe out there people! I’m all for the body cleanse but I do it for the health benefits and weight loss and would like to share how you can to.
