Unlike traditional fasting (where you just drink water or herbal tea) a broth cleanse provides your body with essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals, and antioxidants which provide your body with energy and hydration throughout the day.
A broth cleanse is superior to a juice cleanse because it doesn’t spike your blood sugar which can lead to energy crashes and hunger pangs. Because broth is savoury rather than sweet, it controls your hunger and therefore you feel less fatigued and more focused.
It’s a champion all-rounder, packed with protein, vitamins, minerals, collagen and keratin.
1. How it Works
For 6 days, replace 2 meals a day with 2 cartons of vegan broth. On day 7 eat a normal healthy diet.
Take Stock Vegan Broth is the delicious, flavour-packed liquid obtained by intensely simmering vegetables and herbs for up to 24 hours. It’s a savoury alternative to juicing, for a sustainable cleanse program.
2. How to Drink
Consume one carton in the morning, and one in the middle of the day, gently warmed in a pan.
Take Stock Vegan Broth is delicious on its own, but you can add healthy fats (coconut oil), and natural flavourings (fresh ginger, turmeric).
3. What to Eat
Have one balanced nutritious evening meal e.g. lean proteins, root vegetables, leafy greens.
Avoid alcohol, sugar, grains and processed foods. If in doubt about what to eat, we recommend you follow a paleo diet (you can find healthy recipes on our website).

From the Founders
With four children and a growing business, broth is our ultimate healthy habit. We regularly detox with broth and see enormous benefits for ourselves and our family. We hope you love it as much as we do, and if you have any questions check out the FAQ.
What is intermittent fasting with broth?
Strictly speaking, intermittent fasting means not having any calories for a period of time in the day, (usually 16 hours) and then having an 8 hour window where you eat.
The broth cleanse is a modified form of intermittent fasting where you can drink broth during the normal period of fasting, but still eat your food within a specific period of time.
What else can I drink other than broth?
Water and herbal teas are recommended. You can drink tea or coffee without milk or milk alternatives, but if you want to detox your body of caffeine, then avoid these drinks. Alcohol and fizzy drinks are not permitted!
Where can I get ideas for recipes for my healthy evening meal?
We have lots of delicious recipes on our website (although not all of them are paleo). But there are plenty of ideas on the internet, and the BBC website has a huge bank of ideas!
Will I be hungry?
Broth is packed full of essential nutrients (protein, collagen, amino acids, vitamins & minerals), so your body will not feel deprived. Protein is satiating, meaning it keeps you feeling full (unlike a juice cleanse, which spikes your blood sugar and then leads to a ‘crash’ afterwards). Also, broth is delicious! Take Stock has an award-winning flavour including a Great Taste Award.
Can I eat fruit after my evening meal?
We don’t recommend doing this, as this will spike your blood sugar levels. If you are really suffering sugar cravings, try herbal teas or hot water with fresh ginger.
What should I eat on day 7?
As your stomach will have shrunk, we don’t recommend going for a massive ‘binge’ or celebration meal, as also this will un-do the good you have done! It is important not to overload the digestive system so you should eat small portions of healthy foods and avoid grain and sugars.
Is a broth cleanse safe?
We are not qualified to give medical advice and if you have any concerns, you should speak to your GP before starting a broth cleanse, as well as if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have diabetes/suffer from hyperglycemia or have a history of eating disorders.
