The Master Cleanse
Many people buy maple syrup in our shop and online in order to do the Master Cleanse. The Master Cleanse is supposed to clean and detoxify the body. The Master Cleanse was initially published in the 1940’s by Stanley Burroughs. The cleanse contains water, maple syrup, lemon juice, and cayenne pepper; although there are many variations of the recipe. This is a 10-day fast, meaning you typically drink the “lemonade” instead of eating. Many people have contacted us saying that after they had completed the cleanse they had much more energy, clearer minds, felt healthier, and they were more focused.
For the Master Cleanse, the darker the maple syrup the better. Canada Number 3 (Dark), or Grade D in the United States, is the best choice. The darker grades of maple syrup are said to have more nutrients than the lighter grades. The maple syrup used in the Master Cleanse must be pure maple syrup, imitation syrup such as Aunt Jemima syrup is not maple syrup. Pure maple syrup is the key ingredient in the cleanse as it provides energy to the body during the period of fasting. Its also provides many nutrients, minerals, and vitamins to the body.
Even though weight loss can happen during this cleanse, the purpose is not to lose weight, it is to cleanse the body & increase energy. There are multiple recipes,diet plans, and tips on the internet, so do a little research before you choose one. Since this is a fast, and no food will be eaten for a period of time, consult your doctor before you try the cleanse. Celebrities known to have done the Master Cleanse include Fred Durst, Beyoncé Knowles, Angelina Jolie, and Gwyneth Paltrow.
