Benefits of Cleansing
- Cleanse your digestive tract from tongue to tail.
- A juice cleanse can help to improve digestion and elimination.
- Detox your body on a cellular level.
- A juice cleanse can help stimulate cellular detox, allowing stored toxins to be purged and eliminated.
- Renew your whole being.
- A little bit of cleansing and little bit of detox can allow your body to renew itself. Some may experience weight loss, others mental clarity, skin conditions may clear up, flexibility may increase. Each person is unique and so are the results.
- How long should my juice cleanse be?
If this is your first time cleansing, we recommend starting with 1 day to see how you feel. Most people will notice results immediately. To keep everything running smoothly, you can continue doing a 1 day cleanse each week. When you're ready to take things to the next level, you can increase the duration day by day. The longer you cleanse, the more dramatic the results will be.
To make sure our fresh juices don't spoil, we let you select up to 7 days worth of juice per cleanse. If you create a custom cleanse that you really like and want to continue with, we save your selections so you can come back and quickly reorder next week.
- What results can I expect?
Each person's cleansing and detox experience is unique. Some people are able to start a juice fast with ease, while others experience challenges. Although we each have a unique experience, there are some common things to expect:
- Weight Loss: When you're hydrated with juice and your regularity kicks in, the body sheds excess pounds. Some people can easily lose a pound a day while juicing.
- Mental Clarity: This is commonly experienced after juicing for several days.
- Regularity: Juicing hydrates the body and the GI tract. The elimination of stubborn solids often occurs. Keep plenty of toilet paper on hand and be happy to be free of this toxic debris.
- Energy Boost: Vegetable and fruit juices are clean burning fuel. When juicing, many people feel lighter and energized.
- Are there any side effects?
During your cleanse, you may experience the following:
- Headaches and Fatigue: Drinking nothing but juice releases stored toxins back into circulation. These toxins can cause headaches and other types of discomfort. People often experience caffeine withdrawal symptoms and a drop in energy levels as well. It's best to stay hydrated and take it easy.
- Dizziness When Standing: This is common while cleansing for several days. Stay hydrated and take things slow.
- Bad Breath: The lungs are one of the organs of elimination in the body. As a result, your breath may become stinky during a juice cleanse. Try chewing fresh parsley or mint to freshen your breath and brush your teeth between juices.
- Mild Rash: The skin is the largest organ of elimination in the body, yet it is the least efficient. Toxins are eliminated from the body through tiny pores in the skin. Sometimes this can lead to a mild skin irritation.
- Diarrhea: Hydrating the GI tract with fresh juice can lead to rapid elimination of solids and semi-solids. This is just a more pleasant way to describe diarrhea. Don't be alarmed, we guarantee you that you're better off without the stuff that is exiting your body.
- Moodiness: During a juice cleanse you may experience moodiness especially when you're experiencing hunger or caffeine withdrawal. Our advice is to drink more juice, stay hydrated with herbal teas and water, and hang in there.
- How will I feel during the cleanse
Drinking nothing but cold-pressed juices initiates the cleansing process with in the body. Once this process starts, you'll likely experience common symptoms like hunger, aches and pains, and fatigue.
Our cold-press squeezes the fiber out of the fruits and vegetables that make up each juice, so missing out on that fiber will force your stomach to send hunger signals to your brain. Typically after about three days your stomach will get used to this new habit and stop sending those signals so you won't feel as hungry all the time.
Because you're also consuming less calories than you would by eating solid foods, your energy levels will be diminished. As a result, you may feel tired, light-headed, and lethargic. It's best to take it easy during your cleanse. This means you should avoid intense work outs and strenuous activities, and replace it with gentle stretching like yoga and mild cardio work outs.

- What order should I drink my juices in?
- While there is no wrong order to drink the juices, we have some guidelines to keep you feeling your best. By drinking the higher calorie or heavier juices like nut mylks during the middle of the day, you'll be able to better perform daily activities that need the most energy. Lower calorie juices such as greens are best in the evening to help you relax before bed.
- Can I eat food during my juice cleanse?
- You can, but a juice cleanse is designed to let your body put the energy normally used for digesting solid foods toward cleansing. So, if you were to eat solid foods that contain fat and fiber, you woudn't be able to maximize your cleansing potential and get the most dramatic results.
- Can I drink coffee during my juice cleanse?
- While drinking coffee may not be the same as eating food, it can still prevent maximum results. Coffee contains caffeine, which has to be broken down by the liver. Like the stomach, the liver should also be focused solely on cleansing. If you're used to drinking coffee everyday, you should take a week to gradually wean yourself off the caffeine. During the first three days, limit yourself to no more than 3 cups of half decaf / half regular coffee per day. On day 4, cut back to 2 cups or less. Any additional cups should be replaced with green tea. By the end of the week you should be ready to start your cleanse coffee-free.
