Everyone who chooses to do the Master Cleanse has very specific reasons why they feel they need to cleanse. They may have goals to achieve, be it to lose weight fast (or at any speed), eliminate toxins, to address bad eating habits or balancing their health in certain aspects. To ensure your results, we decided to write a short article to help you avoid the common mistakes many people make during the Master Cleanse.
Here are 5 tips on how to make the Master Cleanse Lemonade right: 

Tip # 1 – How to store your lemons

organic_lemons, Master Cleanse tipsStore your lemons on the counter to ripen, NOT in the fridge. Enzymes are dormant in the fridge. You want those enzymes. Take the 10 most ripe lemons out for your first day or two.

This is a simple mistake to make but it can be very costly and have a big impact on the detoxing process that is taking place during the Master Cleanse. The Fresh Lemon Juice is the MOST CRITICAL component of this powerful lemonade detox diet. If you don’t drink your Lemon Juice Fresh, you will not be getting the vital enzymes that lose vitality over time, and exposure to light and air.

Tip # 2 – Use the best quality of water you can find/afford

Master Cleanse common mistakes, Master Cleanse tips

The quality of water consumed during the Cleanse is extremely important. The quality of your water during the Master Cleanse is the key to great results.You probably know that your body uses water to flush and transport toxins to the organs of elimination ( The colon, bladder, lungs, skin and so on…) to discharge them. Latest scientific research shows that many health problems can be significantly improved, or completely eliminated, with just an adequate consumption of good water.

We recommend 3 ways to ensure your water is pure and appropriate for the Master Cleanse:

  1. Check your local health-food store for Purified Bottled Water.
  2. Install good Water Filter for your tap water.
  3. You can also use Water Ionizer.

Can I use distilled water?

Make sure NOT to use distilled water. Stanley Burroughs – The Master Cleanse founder, did not recommend using distilled water. He called it was “cooked” – completely stripped of natural minerals found in water.It is also slightly acidic.

Tip # 3 – Make each glass of lemonade fresh

By that we mean, make one glass at the time if possible and always use freshly squeezed lemon juice. After you  juiced your lemons, add the rest of the lemonade ingredients into the glass, mix immediately and drink. I like to drink the glass quickly because it seems to hit my hunger spot quickly. I usually only drink when I need to, and when enough time has passed to allow for a nice spread over the day as I try to manage my daily quota.

Quick tip: Don’t wait till you are thirsty. That is the final sign of your body telling you that it is dehydrated. Keep to drinking at least 8 glasses of lemonade a day (from my experience) and more if you are working out, have to be very active or doing the cleanse in summer time (when we naturally need to drink more water).

How do I take my Master Cleanse to go and make sure it is fresh each time?  

I know that making the lemonade fresh presents a challenge if you are going to work every day or just have to take your Master Cleanse lemonade on the road with you at times. Please, scroll down the page to watch a video we made that gives you clear instructions on how to make your master cleanse concentrate that you can mix with water and add cayenne pepper as you go.

Tip # 4 – What to do if the lemonade is too spicy

[easyazon_image align=”right” asin=”B0006ZIT2A” locale=”us” height=”160″ src=”http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/216L%2BBo4TEL._SL160_.jpg” width=”83″]

Drink your lemonade as soon as you can after you made it (5-10 minutes after it was made). If you allow the lemonade to sit with the Cayenne pepper in it for too long as it will steep (just like a tea). The lemonade will get too spicy and that may prevent you from drinking enough lemonade during the day.

You can also use Cayenne pepper capsules that you can just swallow with each glass of lemonade and avoid the immediate spicy taste of the cayenne pepper and still get all the benefits.

Tip # 5 -The Lemonade Diet Concentrate – the most common mistake

Previously mentioned on this website was my preference to drink Pre-mix Lemonade. I now understand a critical flaw to this plan. The longer your Lemonade sits, the more enzymes die. The solution to this problem is to make your Master Cleanse concentrate that you can use for making fresh lemonade by adding water and the cayenne pepper as you go.

Here is a short video we made on how to make your Master Cleanse Concentrate:

If you need to Pre-mix your Lemonade, then you should only mix a concentrate of just 2 ingredients :

  1. The Fresh Lemon Juice
  2. And the Rich Maple Syrup.
The maple syrup acts as a preservative. This Lemonade Diet Concentrate will keep the enzymes alive long enough to be consumed during the day.Store The Lemonade Diet Concentrate in a cool, dark, glass container. Do not add the cayenne or water to the concentrate! The cayenne will “Steep” like tea, and make the concentrate very hot. The water will dilute the maple syrup and the enzymes in the Fresh Lemon Juice will die. Add the water each time you make a fresh glass of lemonade.
