I have just watched Jason Vale’s movie SUPER JUICE ME which is FREE to watch online and thought I would do a quick review. The idea is to take 8 different people with a variety of diseases between them (22 in total), fly them away to the fabulous Juicy Oasis retreat in Portugal for 28 days and give them nothing but freshly extracted fruit and vegetable juices to test Jason’s idea of “One Disease – One Solution”.
As you know already from my blog, I am a big fan of juicing and its health benefits. It has helped me with problems I have with my stomach which no doctor or medication could fix, so I was hopeful that this experiment would have some impressive results to spread the juicy word.
The film follows these 8 people, who suffer from things such as Crohn’s Disease, Diabetes, Obesity and Asthma, from day 1 to 28. It also shows interviews from juicing/ natural health experts. They talk about the dangers of our modern diet and the amazing benefits of fresh fruit and veg.
It really is eye opening, even for someone like me who has researched this topic a lot. Even with the knowledge, it is easy to get caught up in the culture of eating processed junk food that is just so quick and convenient, but this movie really makes you think again and get back on track.
The results at the end are better than I was expecting, and the experiment has really changed the lives of each and every one of the participants. They all saw dramatic improvements in their conditions, lost lots of weight and some were even able to come off their medications. Wow!
The idea that as a culture, we are over fed when really our bodies are starving and calling out for proper nutrition makes perfect sense when you think about it. The film uses some fun animations to illustrate a few of it’s points which really do make you think. It’s quite scary that we are practically eating ourselves to death!
You really are what you eat (and drink), Jason has proved this.
I definitely think everyone needs to see this film, I will certainly be sharing it with as many people as possible.
Have you watched it? Let me know what you think.
