 How often should I do Juice Cleanse?

It depends on your personal lifestyle and situation but if you are in tune with your body, you’ll know when it’s time to embark on your next cleanse.
Some people like to cleanse for a full day once a week, others 1-3 days a month to stay on top of their game.  Then there are those who believe in the brilliant wisdom of doing a major “house-clean” with every change of season by cleansing for several days in succession to restore their body and mind.
It’s up to you to experiment, listen to your body and to find the routine that is right for you.
At the very least, one of the best things you can do for your health is to start each morning with a cold-pressed juice before you consume anything else because it’s easy on your digestive system and you’ll be flooding your cells with vital nutrition each and every day to maintain your energy, mental and skin clarity and immunity.

Will I lose weight doing a Juice Cleanse?

Doing a Juice Cleanse will help to release excess toxins and backed up sludge stuck in your digestive tract. This is the primary reason to do a juice cleanse. A cleaner system will make it easier to shed unwanted weight, so whilst you won’t necessarily immediately lose weight during your cleanse, the natural by-product will be that your body will now be running more efficiently and ready to start releasing excess body fat more easily.Post cleanse, we recommend incorporating lots of high water content, raw plant foods into your diet and a routine of moderate exercise and periodic cleansing.

Can anyone cleanse?

We must firstly emphasize that we are not doctors. We do not offer medical advice of any kind, nor do we offer medically supervised cleanses. If you have a medical condition or are on prescription medication, we strongly advise that you consult your doctor before considering a cleanse. We do not recommend cleansing if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or under 18 years of age. Beyond that, the decision to cleanse or not to cleanse is a personal one. Listen to your body, and do what feels right for you.

What about fiber?

Fibre is necessary to move food bulk through your digestive system, however during a juice cleanse, the primary purpose is to give your body a rest from expending energy on the digestion of food.
Consuming cold-pressed juice is high-frequency nutrition for your cells that requires virtually no digestion.  The nutrients received from the juices are absorbed rapidly into your blood stream, allowing your body to divert its available energy to detoxifying, healing and repairing rather than processing food.

How long do your juices last, and do they need to be refrigerated?

Our juices are alive, and are not artificially preserved in any way. This means that they must be kept refrigerated, and we strongly recommend drinking them as soon as possible. When kept chilled and unopened, each juice has a shelf life of 72 hours.Our juices are pressed on the morning of delivery to you. Your order makes its way to your door from our kitchen in a chilled delivery bag. When it arrives, someone must be available to receive your delivery so that it can be placed immediately in the refrigerator. Remember, our cold-pressed juices are completely raw and unpasteurized with no preservatives, so they will deteriorate once aerated and opened. When you’re ready for a juice, we recommend that you shake it up and drink it completely in one sitting.

What does alkalizing mean, and what is “alkaline” water?

Many of the things we eat introduce high levels of acidity into our systems. For example, animal products like meat, eggs and dairy; processed foods like refined flour and sugar; and beverages like soft drinks and coffee are all acid forming. Too much acidity decreases the body’s ability to absorb minerals and other nutrients, hinders its ability to repair damaged cells, and makes it more susceptible to fatigue and illness.

Drinking alkaline water and consuming more alkalizing foods like vegetables and fruit, both whole and in cold-pressed juice form, help to neutralize this acid and keep your fluids within their optimal pH range.
