the do's and dont's of juice cleansing

Are your juices organic?

We strive to use all organic produce in our products. If there is ever a time where organic produce is unavailable and we are forced to use conventional produce, we will clearly mark these items. We feel our customers should have all the information they need about our product to make the best decisions possible.

How is the JugoFresh Cleanse different from other cleanses?

We believe our cleanse to be the best. However, we strongly urge you to explore what works best for you. We put time, effort and tremendous care into all of our products. We clean all of our produce and use the best form of juice extraction known. Our juices are powerful! Drink them – a lot! 


Is there an age requirement or limit to cleanse?

18 or over and you're all good. 

I am taking medication. Can I still cleanse?

Please consult your primary care physician before beginning a cleanse.

Can I do the cleanse if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?

No, but when you're done breastfeeding, it's a great way to get back on track and replenish your body with tons of nutrients.

I love to have a few cocktails or beers. Can I cleanse?

If you are a heavy drinker we recommend that you give yourself at least 3-5 days of being alcohol free. We strictly warn against drinking alcohol before or during your cleanse.

Can I smoke while cleansing?

Can you go scuba diving without an oxygen tank? Sure, if you really want.

Is it ok to exercise while I am on the cleanse?

Sure, as long as you listen your body. We recommend low-impact activity like walking, swimming, stretching and yoga. Exercise is a great way to help your body with detoxification. 


Can I chew gum?

Chewing gum is not advised. People say it tends to make them feel hungry. 


Where will I get my protein from while on the cleanse?

There are naturally occurring proteins in both leafy greens and nuts. You will get protein from the green juices, as well as from the nut mylks. If you feel as if you are in need of more protein on a daily basis, while cleansing, take a look at out undefeated athlete cleanse.

Is it OK if I drink Kombucha tea while cleansing?

While Kombucha teas are a great way to add probiotics to your diet, we do not suggest them during the cleanse. However, they are great before and after.


Will I lose weight from doing the cleanse?

It is possible, but this is not what the JugoFresh Cleanses are intended to do. Anything you lose during a cleanse is probably water weight and toxins. Once you begin to integrate foods again, your weight should return to its normal state. This is a great way to begin a shift in your dietary habits if you want to lose weight, but it's not the goal of a cleanse.


Will I gain the weight back after I am finished with the cleanse?

Most likely yes. 


How many calories are in your juices?

We do not count calories here at JugoFresh, but maybe somewhere between 800-1300 depending on the cleanse. Fact: 100 calories of cheeseburger is different than 100 calories of broccoli. Not all calories are created equal and these calories are definitely the cream of the crop.  


Are there enough calories in the cleanse to get me through the day?

The cleanse and all of our juices are packed with Mother Nature's best form of nutrients. You can always add more juices if you want. Listen to your body to know what's best for you.

 

Will I be hungry?

Our cleanse is designed to provide you with all the nutrients you will need to get through your day. With this in mind, it is important to begin to recognize the difference between hunger and emptiness. Hunger is a need for nourishment and emptiness is a feeling in your stomach. If you are hungry than eat a couple of almonds or a few slices of cucumber. 


Does it matter if I don't drink the juices in the specific order?

Yes, we ask that you drink them in our suggested order. If you have cleansed with us several times and want to experiment in your own order feel free to do so.

Help! I can't drink the green juices, what should I do?

The green juices are the most nutrient dense juices in your cleanse. We strongly urge you to do your best to drink all of your green juices. If you cannot drink all of a bottle, at least drink half. If it helps, try adding lemon or lime juice.


What are some detox symptoms I will experience?

Many people experience mild headaches, especially those who consume caffeine. Every cleanse and cleanser is different, but fatigue, dizziness, and bouts of nausea are all normal. If you feel as though your symptoms are unbearable then please contact a medical professional. However, when cleansing detox symptoms are a good sign and can be eased with a simple herbal tea and deep breathing. Another way to slow down your detox is to have a couple slices of apple or a few pieces of a raw vegetable; carrots or cucumbers.


How should I store my juices?

Your juices need to be refrigerated at all times.
