Why should I cleanse?
Doing a juice cleanse can help unleash the body’s natural healing power by ridding built up toxins accumulated from years of consuming processed foods, caffeine, sugars and alcohol. The vitamins and nutrients consumed whilst juicing are easily absorbed in the body meaning your body receives the maximum amount of goodness it can from the fruits and vegetables which make up your juice. A juice cleanse is a great way to kick start a new healthy lifestyle change or to prepare and help you with a weight loss goal.
Is it true that our bodies are capable of cleansing naturally?
If you’re concerned that a juice cleanse is just a fad, consider that humans have been cleansing since ancient times! Nature heals and repairs the body. We just allow your body to do what it does … but better. Cleansing is a way to give your digestive system a break, and allow it to release the toxins that have been building up in order to heal. Historically, cleansing was used as a way to bring balance back into people’s lives. So, while cleansing has become increasingly popular among Hollywood celebs and the masses in the last few years, it is certainly not a trend.
What cleanse do you recommend?
If you have not cleansed before, we would advise starting with a 3 day cleanse and then work your way up. A 5 day cleanse is more beneficial than a 3 day cleanse as the elimination of toxins and the number of nutrients you consume is greater, however starting with a 3 day cleanse is definitely a great way to start.
How often should I cleanse?
This is a personal decision that should be discussed with a health care professional. Many people like to cleanse whenever they start to feel seasonal health challenges. This can mean anywhere from once a month to once every three to six months.
How should I store my juices?
All our juices are made and fresh to order and then frozen immediately to lock in nutrients, as we do not pasteurise our juices this ensures that the juices do not spoil, Your juices will be delivered straight to your doorstep in cooler with ice packs. Just take them out of the cooler and put them straight into your freezer. all you have to do is take out the juices the night before to defrost each day.
How do I break the cleanse?

Can I do a cleanse if I am pregnant?
Our cleanse programs are designed for all healthy people; however, there are certain individuals who should not partake. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should not restrict your diet to liquids, as you need extra calories and nutrients in your diet, although a cleanse is NOT suitable, drinking a juice to add to your healthy eating plan is a great idea.
Will I lose weight?
Whilst one of the many benefits of juice cleansing is losing weight, we believe it to be an added bonus instead of our goal for doing a cleanse. Weight loss is completely individual to the cleanser and is dependent on your current weight and eating habits. Some will be surprised by their weight loss, others will be disappointed. Weight-loss should not be the focus of your cleanse. Focus on resetting your body, alkalising your system, and breaking old habits.
Will I really be able to handle a cleanse?
While committing to a cleanse program requires a level of dedication, it is not designed in any way to starve you. The goal is to feed you through highly nutritious liquids. Believe in yourself. Although this is a departure from the ways you are used to feeding yourself, you will be thankful you did it. And don't forget that you can always call or email us for support.
Can I consume other drinks whilst cleansing?
You are advised to drink plenty of water during your cleanse, and you are also able to drink herbal teas. We highly advise avoiding other drinks such as sugary and caffeinated drinks and alcohol.
Why has my juice separated?
Because it’s natural! Just give it a shake. Most store bought drinks don’t separate because they have stabilisers added in. We prefer to shake our juice rather than drink chemicals!
I’m allergic/have an intolerance to an ingredient in your juices. Can I tailor my cleanse?
Depending on your intolerance, we are happy to accommodate your juices as best we can. This may be subject to an extra fee due to the extra work to tailor make your juices. Please contact us directly for more information.
