Urban Remedy Bridal Cleanse Review
Hello & Happy Sunday!!
I’m sure everyone is realaxing from the weekend and looking to reboot their system for Monday, so a cleanse feature seemed perfect! We all have our own perception of “cleansing” and it’s true effects. I’ll be honest, I do still sometimes cringe at the word “detoxing” because the body has the ability to detox on its own and I find it misleading, but at any rate..
There are certain situations where a cleanse is warranted to give your body a jolt and help you perhaps get back to a healthier routine.
That being said, in a sea of bad options, how do you navigate choosing a cleanse that’s going to work for the body and not against it. Many cleanses don’t contain enough calories or fiber and leave your body going into starvation mode. Thus when you’re done with cleansing you may over eat and or cause your body to hold on to calories and produce fat.
Since I typically consume a plant based diet, I rarely cleanse. However, I had the pleasure of previously exploring Urban Remedy and even as a person who consumes a balanced diet, I could see the positive effects in my energy levels, my skin brightened, I was consistently full, which reduced any sugar craving, and I LOVED all of the salad recipes.
When I mean loved, I mean, obsessed. There salads were colorful, had diversity in texture, the flavor of juices not off-putting yet contained little to no sugar, the portions solid/filling, and the flavor of the dressings all on point!
What sets this cleanse apart from others is it encompasses not only juices, but a balance of food, snacks and even tea. Having the plethora of options enables you to stay satiated and your tastebuds not bored. In addition to this cleanse offering more diversity in the food options it comes with various tinctures that help to enhance the cleansing process. The are comprised mostly of green tea extract, which I highly recommend for anyone trying to break away from coffee. While the other tincture contains reseveratrol, which is the antioxidant in wine.
They taste terrible, but bring the cleansing process full circle.
While this cleanse can seem like a big commitment, it’s one of those no brainer cleanses. It comes with everything you need, I see instant results in every capacity, I didn’t have a moment of feeling hungry after day one, perhaps due to the almonds given in the cleanse. The healthy fats provide more satiety, which also mitigate sugar cravings.
Lastly, the juices provided have a hint of sweet, but very minimal sugar. Believe it or not many juices on the market today still contain ample amount of sugar, which negates the purpose of cleansing and obtaining nutrients through juice. Sometimes it’s unavoidable, but in that instance I typically drink half and fill the rest with water.
The price point of the Urban Remedy cleanse may be a tad higher to what you typically see, but again, you get what you pay for. You get countless organic options, copious salads that are so well excited you’ll want to recreate them following the cleanse, tinctures that enhance the process, snacks, juices, tea, and I promise.. After day 1, you may not even be able to eat all the food in one day!
If you’re looking for a cleanse that instantly works, need to jumpstart your body for wedding season/beach season, or simply are looking to explore a company with products you’re going to love..
I highly recommend the Urban Remedy Bridal Cleanse!

Urban Remedy does not add sugar or excess fruit juices to mask the beautiful bouquet of our natural juices. Once our juice is in its final packaging, we use High-Pressure Processing (HPP) to preserve maximum nutrition and freshness. A high level of cool pressure is applied to inactivate any pathogens, preserving all the natural vitamins, enzymes, and nutrients. We take care to keep juices low on the glycemic index. We incorporate the stevia leaf (popular in ancient Chinese medicine) to lightly sweeten our delicious lemonades.
