A juice cleanse can make you feel cleaner, healthier and more energized.
During the first 24-48hrs your metabolic rate will reduce because you will be consuming less calories than usual, your body will try & conserve energy and will convert glycogen to glucose in the liver at this time. For the remainder of the juice cleanse (generally day 3 onwards) your body will use fat as it’s main energy source. Most toxins are stored in fat cells, as the body burns them for energy, toxins will be released. As you will only be consuming liquids your digestive system is given a complete rest, while this is taking place the energy usually used for digestion is diverted to cleansing and repairing of body tissue. By day 3 and beyond your hunger should subside. To further assist the detox process we recommend dry body brushing before you shower, a colonic hydrotherapy session and massage. In the latter part of the detox your energy levels should increase to a higher level than before your juice detox. Most people also experience improved mental clarity, concentration, lots of will power and the feeling of ‘my body is a temple’. It’s a great way to kick start a new healthy regime.
Weight loss can depend on the length of the cleanse and how much you weigh before you begin. On average you can expect to lose between 4-7lb on a 5 day cleanse and 2-4lb on a 3 day cleanse, or on average 1lb per day for longer cleanses.
Yes, but try and be gentle with yourself. Everybody is different, listen to your body. If you feel tired rest is the best thing you can do. Read the ‘what happens during a cleanse’ question, there’s a lot going on while detoxing and resting can aid the process. If you do want to continue your exercise regime maybe tone it down to jogging, walking or yoga.
Yes. There’s a common myth that you feel foggy while detoxing, when actually by day 3 you will be feeling more energized and clear thinking than usual. You may experience headaches or hunger in the first couple of days so reducing your schedule could be a good idea depending on the type of work you do. The fact that you don’t need to do the juicing and cleaning of your juicer means that our detox plan is a convenient way to detox while continuing your every day life. We recommend that you don’t get too bored as thoughts of food can creep in, make plans to have a herbal tea with friends, watch a movie or read a book in your down time.
Please see the Learn: Juice Cleanses, Pre/Post section of our website. Also once you have placed your order with us you will receive a detailed guide.
5 or more days will give you a deeper intense experience and results than cleansing for 3 days, but if you’re inexperienced we would recommend you try 3 days first to see how you feel, then you can try 5 days next time. Always listen to your body.
Everybody is different, how you feel will depend on many factors. The key is to listen to your body and if you feel tired or faint make sure you get enough rest. You may get a headache early on in the cleanse, this can be caused by withdrawal symptoms from things like sugar or caffeine or is your body detoxing, the solution is to drink plenty of water or herbal teas as well as evenly spacing your juices throughout the day to keep your blood sugar levels even. To help you through the cleansing reactions, remember that they are an indication that your body is crying out to be cleansed. By day 3 and every day you cleanse after that you should have more energy and be feeling clearer and brighter.
Our juices are not pasteurized so may therefore contain harmful bacteria, drinking the juices while pregnant or breast feeding is not recommended. Also a cleanse is not recommended at this time as your body requires additional food sources and calories.
This is a personal decision and one that should be discussed with a health care professional. You can cleanse anything from monthly, 3 monthly, half yearly or annually. Most people cleanse when they feel they need to or when preparing for a holiday or special event such as a wedding. At juice philosophy we believe in making our pressed juices and drinks part of your daily life whether detoxing or not. Consuming the nutrients in our fresh-pressed drinks on a regular basis will support your system and keep your body in optimal shape, inside and out.
We have a hydraulic cold press juicer. This is different to a home or centrifugal juicer which takes the whole fruit or vegetable and squeezes out the juice. A hydraulic press juicer grinds the produce into a fine pulp and then applies thousands of pounds of pressure to the pulp extracting every ounce of juice possible. This gentle cold process allows little or no air to be introduced to the juice. Because of this our juices can be stored in sealed containers and refrigerated for up to 3 days with little loss of taste nutrients or colour.
Because it's 100% natural, please give it a shake before you enjoy it.
All our juices are processed in a facility that handles nuts, so if you have a nut allergy we don’t recommend you try our juices, sorry.
