Does it matter in which order I drink the juices?
Yes it does. The order in which you drink your juices during a cleanse has a big influence on how your body takes in the nutrients. When your stomach is still empty, it can take in much more of the nutrients than when it’s had something to digest prior. That’s why we start the day with a green juice, to give you the best boost of nutrients possible.
Am I allowed to chew gum?
Your stomach needs to get used to not get any food in it. Trust us, it will do so in a little while. Gum will only upset your system even more, chewing will make your stomach ready to take in some food – which is not coming.. If you’re really gnawing away on wood though, eat some natural gum without sugar.
That green choose is hunting me, I can't drink it. Can I skip it?
No you can’t skip it! The green juice is really what gives you all the important stuff to cleanse; vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, flavonoids, enzymes and other nutrients. Use your willpower to get through it because you know you need it. Try adding some freshly squeezed lemon juice or really cooling it down also tempers the flavour.
Can I do the cleanse while eating food?
Unfortunately the benefits of the cleanse will be lost when you eat food. The whole point of the cleanse is to only consume juice instead of solid foods, so your digestive system has time to rest and clean itself. You could however add the our cold pressed juice to your regular diet to supplement it with loads of vitamins and minerals.
What can I do to support my cleanse?
Bentonite clay will help draw out the toxins from your body. As the clay passes through your body, its negative ionic charge will draw to it anything with a positive charge (bacteria, viruses, toxins, etc.) and will remove them from your body.
To move the toxins out of your body you can use psyllium husk. When psyllium husk comes in contact with water, it swells and forms a gelatin like mass that helps transport waste through the intestinal tract. It is important to consume enough fluid with psyllium. To further avoid constipation, consume 250 ml of fluid when taking the psyllium, and at least 6 to 8 glasses of water throughout the day.
Activated Charcoal also takes out the toxins. It is 100% alkaline and is spinning with electrons making the substance highly electrical. Carbon’s negative ionic charge attracts positive ionic charges (of toxins and poisons) causing them to bind and then escorts them out of the body via the eliminative channel of the intestines.
This is my first cleanse. How will I know that i'll get through it?
Our cleanses offer a lot of nutrients so you will not be deprived of anything. When you’re new to cleansing, go for the first level which has the most calories in it. Just make sure to take it a little slower than usual, take some extra rest when needed and listen to your body.
What cleanse should I choose?
We offer three different cleanses – deep, deeper, deepest – for three different durations. It all just depends on how deep you want to cleanse. The longer and more advanced the deeper your cleanse will be able to get. The Deep, Deeper, Deepest cleanses are rated in terms of caloric value and the intensity. The higher the level, the lower the calories. Also, green juices are an aquired taste for many people, the higher the level the more green juice you get (that’s why the calories can be lower). Those who have never tried a cleanse before are wise to start with the first level. This way they will have fever detox symptoms and less hunger. If you’ve done a few cleanses or juice regularly and have a diet without too many processed foods, you can go for a deeper version and notice that cleansing will become more and more easy.
Can I drink alcohol and caffeine during my cleanse?
We strictly recommend not to drink alcohol or during the cleanse as well as in the 3 – 5 days prior to the cleanse and after the cleanse. Alcohol is really a burden for the body in terms of toxins, while you are cleansing because you want to clean your body.
Can I smoke during my cleanse?
We can not tell you how to live your life, but it’s obvious that smoking and cleansing are not a good combination. The whole point of cleansing is to clean your body of toxins, so to provide it with toxins during your cleanse will definitely set you back.
Can I cleanse while being pregnant?
No, cleansing is not advised when you are pregnant. You need food for two and any toxins you let go of might get to your baby. This also goes for breastfeeding, you still need extra macronutrients and any toxins you let go of can be transferred via your mother milk. Drinking our juice in addition to your diet is a great way to get those extra micronutrients you crave when your body needs extra care. So, keep drinking your juice!
Are there any side effects I can expect?
Commonly known side effects are mild headaches, fatigue, dizziness and nausea. The better you prepare your cleanse with a ‘clean’ diet (free of processed foods, sugar, alcohol and caffeine) the less side effects your likely to have. Please take responsibilty for your own health, if you feel as if your symptoms are unbearable, please contact a medical professional.
How do I get my cleanse?
When you purchase a cleanse online or in the shop, you get a receipt good for the number of juices you ordered. The best thing is to pick up your juices at the shop every day so they are as fresh as possible, but we can give you up to three days if you feel this fits your schedule better.
Why is juice so expensive?
Not all juice is created equal. When you consider what you’re consuming: approximately 1 kilo of freshly pressed fruits and vegetables, and if you think of the process involved, it’s actually quite inexpensive!
I don't like the cleanse, I need a refund!
Sorry we do not give refunds. It costs a lot of time and resources to make our cleanses and we plan for it with great care. We ask you to do the same. Please consider carefully before you decide to undergo a cleanse. It’s not something you do spontaneously, you need to know you have the time and are willing to make the effort. If you’re not sure you’ll like it, you can try our juices first, or start with a one day cleanse and see from there. We are not responsible for your schedule or your taste in juice.
Do you offer discounts for press?
Please contact email@example.com if you are considering including us in any press.
Can I exercise while cleansing?
Yes, it’s important to move so you help release the toxins. It could be that a more intensive workout is too much though. Try something less exerting like yoga, walking or swimming.
Should I get a colonic treatment during my cleanse?
Your intestinal tract plays a big role in your cleansing process. Speaking to a colon hydrotherapist about getting colonics is advisable if you want to increase the benefits of your cleanse (or if you’re having trouble going to the bathroom during your cleanse).
