Are you a first time cleanser?
Here is a list of frequently asked questions for first time juice cleansers. We hope that this page will provide you with some direction and peace of mind!
If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to contact us directly.
The Pulp & Press Method
What type of juicer do you use to make your juice?
We use an industrial grade, hydraulic cold press juicer to make each and every one of our delicious juices!
Are all of your ingredients 100% organic?
Absolutely! We strive to provide our customers with only the best, so naturally our ingredient list reflects that! For more information on the importance of organic produce, click here.
Where do you source your ingredients from?
We believe in supporting your own economy to build a stronger community. That’s why we buy all of our ingredients, weather permitting, from local farmers and retailers.
How long will the juice stay fresh?
Kept refrigerated and unopened, your juice will maintain its freshness for up to 60 days. For optimal nutrient absorption, we suggest consuming your juice within this timeframe.
Do you pasteurize your juice?
No! When juice is pasteurized it is heated to a high temperature for a short period destroying the vital nutrients and enzymes of the raw juice.
We use HPP to keep our juice 100% natural so that you get 100% of the nutritional benefits.
What is HPP (High Pressure Processing)?
High pressure processing (HPP) is an all-natural method in which fruits and vegetables are processed under very high pressure. The process kills harmful organisms and bacteria without compromising the nutritional value.
Unlike heat pasteurization, HPP retains the taste, texture, nutrients, and quality of the ingredients. It also extends the shelf life of our juices, so you have more time to enjoy them!
Is the juice diluted with water?
Absolutely not! Our juice is made from 100% fresh fruits and vegetables.
Are there any additives or sweeteners in the juice?
No way! Our delicious juice is created with only raw fruits and vegetables, benefiting from their natural flavours and sugars.
Do you recycle?
We believe recycling is imperative to protecting the welfare of the environment. That’s why our juice bottles are made from 100% PET plastic, an eco-friendly packaging option. Please rinse your bottle and dispose of them in your recycling.
I am new to juicing & I don’t know which cleanse to select. What do I do?
You are welcome to stop by our store at 105 King Street and speak to one of our juice experts, or you can contact us directly. We would be more than happy to help you select a cleanse to best suit your needs.
How many juices will I be drinking per day?
For each of our juice cleanses, you will be consuming 5 of our raw, organic juices every day.
How will I know which juices to drink and when?
Once you have selected the cleanse that is right for you, we will email you an organized schedule outlining:
- Which juices you will be consuming on each day
- What time of the day you will be drinking each juice
Can I drink anything other than the juice while completing my cleanse?
Yes! We recommend that you drink at least 8 cups of water for each day of your cleanse. The water will help to flush toxins from your body as well as keep you feeling full.
You can also have warm herbal teas to subside moments of hunger cravings. Specific suggestions will be provided upon cleanse signup.
Can I eat any solid food while I am cleansing?
For the majority of our cleanses the answer is no. One of the main benefits of completing a juice cleanse is to provide your digestive organs with a much needed break. Your body will benefit from the surge of vitamins and nutrients while your digestive organs can simply flush through the juice that you are consuming.
For those of you who cannot give up the natural sensation of chewing food, we offer a juice kit called The Chew. This juice kit is primarily focused on raw juice consumption, but is thoughtfully paired with 1 snack and 1 meal per day.
Health & Medical
Should I get a colonic?
Some health professionals believe that the buildup of fecal matter may cause stagnant toxins to be absorbed into the bloodstream through the colon walls, calls autointoxication. The medical jury is still out on whether or not they fully support the use of colonics for toxin releasing measures, so the decision to get a colonic is based on your own personal opinion.
What is an infrared sauna & how will it help with toxin flushing?
This particular type of sauna penetrates your body with an infrared wavelength that mobilizes toxins in your body. This causes the toxins to detach from your cells and make their way into your intestines and digestive tract, and ultimately out of your body. Also, in raising your temperature, you will sweat toxins out of your pores. These sessions are highly recommended for maximizing your toxin release.
Will a massage help to flush toxins from my body?
Yes! Not only are massages incredibly relaxing, they can also mobilize toxins in your body, leading to excretion.
Can I exercise during my cleanse?
Yes! Working up a healthy sweat will release toxins through your pores. Just be smart about it. Listen to your body and don’t over do it.
What is dry skin brushing & how will it help with toxin flushing?
Using a stiff bristle brush, preferably made from natural materials, you firmly brush your skin with strokes brushing towards your heart. Not only will it leave your skin feeling soft, dry skin brushing will also remove dead skin cells that clog your pores, preventing your body from expelling toxins.
Also, dry skin brushing stimulates your lymphatic system, which is responsible for eliminating cellular waste in your body.
Will smoking interfere with my juice cleanse results?
There are over 4,000 toxin chemicals present in cigarette smoke, which you then inhale and absorb into your body. To maximize your juice cleanse results, we would strongly suggest that you abstain from smoking in order to flush as many toxins from your body as you can, without adding to the list.
For those of you who are looking to quit smoking, completing a juice cleanse can help to kick bad habits to the curb!
