important info

food allergy information: our kitchen uses nuts so please alert us immediately if you have a nut allergy. our products have not been pasteurized and therefore, may contain harmful bacteria that can cause serious illness in children, the elderly, and persons with weakened immune systems.

how it works

once you pick up your cleanse, you should drink the first juice when you would normally have your first meal and the last juice at least two hours before you go to bed. most people find they reach for a juice every 2 hours. however, you should always listen to your body, and if you want a juice in an hour then have it. if you have any additional questions please refer to our faq or email us.
