What it is:
Not all juice cleanses are created equal! We believe that we're not really detoxifying or cleansing our bodies...we are actually flooding our bodies with the nutrients and proper fuel that our bodies need with which to regenerate, rebuild, and eliminate stored toxins.
1. We only use certified organic produce and during the growing months we support local organic farmers. During the non-growing months however, we predominantly source our certified organic produce along the pacific coast. We won't source locally if the produce is not certified organic! Local does not mean pesticide (toxins & poison) free...it simply means local. Don't be fooled by this! locally grown does not by default mean grown organically, it simply is a reference to where the plant was grown and not a reference to how it was grown. How a plant is grown is infinitely more important than where it is grown!
2. Our juice is raw, untampered, unprocessed, unpasteurized and non-hpp (non-cold pasteurized via extreme pressure to artificially extend shelf life) Our juices are contain a vast lineup of live nutrients and as such they last only a few days (3-5 approx).
3. We utilize true 2 step cold pressed method for the extraction of our plants'/produce's nutrients. There are 3 types of juice extractors: Centrifugal (easiest to use, lowest percentage of live nutrients, must consume within minutes); Masticating (often passed off as cold pressed, slow pressed or fresh pressed...but they are NOT actually. These juicers twist and grind...they do not use a press. There is much more prep involved, the juices contain a good amount of live nutrients and they can retain viability for 2-3 days when properly sealed and refrigerated) these juicers involve a slow moving auger or twin auger system that slowly rotates while pushing the produce through and pushing the pulp out of one side and the juice/fluid out the other side all in one step; Cold-Pressed ...how we do it...( the most labour intensive extraction method involving 2 separate steps: 1.Mulching of the produce, followed by; 2. Pressing out the mulch between two stainless steel plates (typically hydraulically) with several tons of force, highest percentage of live nutrients, can retain viability for 3-5 days when properly sealed and refrigerated). The quality of the juice that comes from a cold pressed extraction method is far superior to the other two extraction methods.
How it works:
Each day on any of our cleanses you'll consume 96 ounces of raw, organic, cold pressed juice! That's nearly 20 lbs of organic produce each and everyday! The ounces are spread out between 8 - 12 ounce bottles, which you'll consume throughout the day at regularly spaced intervals throughout the day. The order is up to you. It's important to ensure that you consume all 8 bottles each day in order to ensure adequate nutrient consumption and caloric intake (approx 1200 calories/day, approx 24-34 grams of protein/day)
You don't need to consume any additional water as you're already drinking nearly 3 litres of some of the cleanest water on the planet via the juices. Plants have a superior filtration system that we have yet to be able to duplicate. You may want to start your day though with warm lemon water and you're welcome to consume warm, organic herbal teas throughout the day.
Don'ts: No caffein, No alcohol, no solid food (if you must though, please enjoy an organic leafy salad with watery vegetables, no dressing, no nuts or croutons), No heavy duty workouts, don't finish your day without consuming all 8 juices!
Dos: Get lots of sleep, Take a few 15-30 minute walks throughout the day to move the lymph in your body (helps with moving toxins out of your system), be kind to yourself and others, keep a journal, Make meals ahead of time when you're cooking for others (as possible), add a teaspoon of L-glutamine to a small amount of water in the morning and again at night on an empty stomach 30 minutes before bed. With your evening L-Glutamine, add a multi-strained, refrigerated probiotic.
How long is best for me:
Only you truly know the answer to this one. If you've never completed a full juice cleanse before, then we would recommend starting with either one of our 3 or 5 day Level 1 (or) Level 2 juice cleanses. If you're familiar juice cleansing and are ready to step up your experience, then we recommend choosing one of our 7 day, 10 day, 14 day or 21 day cleanses. Please contact us if you'd like to know more about cleanses 10 days and longer. In any case, if you have any health concerns or questions, please ensure you have them answered by your trusted healthcare practitioner prior to purchasing and commencing a juice cleanse.
What's the difference between the levels?:
Our cleanses range from level I to Level III. Levels I and II, promote a flood of nutrients aimed toward reducing overall inflammation in the body as well as promoting detoxification and immune boosting. Level III consists predominantly of green juices, minimally sweet and deliver a more intense detoxification experience. If this is your first time juice cleansing, then you may want to begin with a level I or II cleanse to get your footing and then move on to a Level III at some point in the future. If you're well versed in deep green juices, then you'll love our Level III!
