Got a Question?
Q - How many days should I do a Juice cleanse for?
The answer really depends on how you feel, what your diet and lifestyle is like and your whole attitude to a juice cleanse.
If 3 day juice cleanse daunts you at first, try a 2 day – it’s a great introduction and an incredibly short term goal. It’s too short to see great results but it’s still a wonderful boost for your body and will hopefully be the start of a wonderful cleansing journey for you.
Q - How frequently should I do a Juice cleanse?
We recommend doing a 3 day juice cleanse or detox at least twice a year. This will help to keep your body in check and remove toxins that have built up.
Q - What is the best time of year to do a Juice cleanse?
There’s never a bad time to do a Root Juice Cleanse. Although January is our ‘New Year’s Resolution’ time, when we try to commit to starting healthier living habits, Spring is our body’s natural ‘detox’ season. Juice cleansing is also useful before going on holidays and indeed after you return after possibly overdoing it ! Cleansing throughout the year however, is fantastic maintenance.
Q - Can my children Juice cleanse?
Children shouldn’t cleanse whilst still growing but including cold pressed juice in their diet is a perfect way to ensure they’re receiving wonderful nutrients which will benefit them, both now and long term.
Q - Do I need to prepare for a Juice cleanse?
Yes, yes, yes! We can’t stress enough how important it is to prepare your body for a juice cleanse. Ease yourself in and out of the cleanse by eating lots of raw fruit and vegetables and drinking lots of pure water and decreasing and eventually avoiding alcohol, caffeine, dairy products, red meats and white bread and generally any processed foods for a few days before and a few days after the cleanse to get the best results, to minimise side effects and to avoid shocking your body.
DON’T have a big farewell to solid foods the evening before your cleanse begins with a takeaway and bottle of wine – you will definitely NOT feel good by the end of the first day of your cleanse and that’s a promise!
Likewise, don’t have a celebratory banquet full of unhealthy food at the end of your juice cleanse. You will undo all of the great work that you’ve just done and your body won’t thank you for it. Gently ease yourself out of the cleanse. A juice cleanse should not be seen as a quick fix but as a springboard to better eating habits.
Q: Why should I do a Juice cleanse?
There are many different reasons why people chose to do a juice cleanse or also called a Juice detox. We are subject to a number of chemicals and toxins in our lifestyles, PLUS we are also subject to indulgences in our day to day world! A good juice cleanse is a chance for your body to have a break from constant exposure from chemicals, toxins and overall naughties from your food and drink.
Q Is this a diet?
A juice cleanse is NOT a weight loss programme…..but it’s definitely a look good and feel good programme. It’s natural that some weight loss will occur, especially at the beginning of the juice cleanse. Juice cleanses are however, a great kick start to a healthy regime for both mind and body and are perfect to use as a springboard to better eating habits. Check out the top 10 benefits of doing a juice cleanse in our benefits section.
Q: Can I eat anything during the cleanse?
No solids are consumed during a juice cleanse. One of the main objectives of the cleanse is to give the digestive system a rest and with only juices to process it really doesn’t have to work very hard. This gives your body time and energy to concentrate on other things. When we feel under the weather, often we lose our appetite. This is because our body is focussing its energy on where it’s needed most, which is not digestion. We are simply replicating this voluntarily. We are channelling our energy into detoxifying and healing instead of digesting.
Q: Can I still exercise?
Whilst cleansing, avoid doing anything strenuous and practice only gentle exercise such as walking, swimming or yoga. Exercise is still important through the juice cleanse as it helps the elimination process by discharging toxins from the lungs via breath and through the skin via perspiration whilst increasing blood circulation.
If you feel weak or light headed at any point and don’t have the opportunity to rest, do not drive or operate machinery. Try a pinch of sea salt in water which restores energy quickly.
Q: Is your juices preserved in any way
No, our juice is never preserved. We don’t believe in selling juice which is older than its natural life.
Q: Why do you use particular ingredients?
Our juices are made from fruit and vegetables renowned for their cleansing, restorative and highly nutritious properties and together they offer the complete cleansing package. They aid the natural toxin elimination process whilst providing support and a super nutritional boost to your system.
Q: Why is cold pressed juice so good for me?
Cold pressed juice provides the best possible nourishment. Cold pressed juice retains more vitamins, minerals, enzymes and taste than any other juicing method. The nutrients from the vegetables and fruit are absorbed directly into your bloodstream within 15 minutes of drinking.
Q: How long will my juice last?
As our juice is 100% raw and natural with nothing added to it, they have a 4 day shelf life. But our juices can be frozen and used then used within 3 months.
Q: Do I need to refrigerate my juice?
Yes absolutely. Our juice is highly perishable because it’s completely natural and hasn’t been tampered with in any way in order to preserve it. Your juice will be delivered in an eco friendly insulated box which will retain the temperature until you open it. Once opened it is essential to refrigerate your juice immediately at the ultimate temperature of between 1 and 5 degrees.
Do not sit the unopened box on a floor which is heated or leave it in a very warm room.
Q: My juice has separated - has it spoiled?
Not at all, this is a completely natural thing for cold pressed juice to do when left undisturbed and it’s a really positive sign as it means that no nasty artificial stabilisers have been added to it. Don’t settle for a juice that hasn’t settled! Simply tilt a few times or shake gently before drinking.
Q: One of my Juices is a different colour to last time?
Completely! Mother nature, when left to her own devices, doesn’t produce anything identical. Fruits and vegetables vary according to how much sunlight they’ve enjoyed, how much rain, the growing temperature, the minerals in the soil, how ripe the produce is when picked and so on. Although we work with tried and tested recipes, we have living, constantly changing produce to work with. We never use concentrates or extracts in place of the real thing. Your juice will still be delicious even if a little different to the last batch. Embrace it.
Q: Can I do this if I am Pregnant or Breastfeeding?
The answer is no. Science is still uncertain as to whether or not the toxins released during cleansing are excreted through breast milk. So it's best not to possibly subject your baby to extra toxins
Q: If I have diabetes, can I still do the detox?
The first answer is to check with your doctor and we can most definitely send your doctor a list of ingredients.
Q:I am lactose intolerant, can I still do the detox?
For sure!!! There are NO animal products in any of our juices.
