What is a cleanse?
Our Juice Cleanses are 1/3/5 day nutritional detoxes designed to give your digestive system a rest from the normal routine. By consuming purely fruit and vegetable juices & dairy-free nut milks, cleanses flood your body with key nutrients, mineral and enzymes.
Why do a Juice Cleanse?
Very simple - to get rid of all the toxins in your body. Unfortunately, we live in very polluted world where the air around us and the food and water we put into our bodies are full of toxins. Our bodies are unable to cleanse at a rate fast enough to match the rapid toxification taking place in our bodies. Our juices flush all of these toxins out of your body while putting all the enzymes and vitamins back in. Another bonus is that at the same time your body will get a rest from digestion. We spend a lot of energy on digesting complex foods, which wear out the body enormously. The healthiest thing we can do is cut out processed foods as much as we can and replace them with fruit and vegetable juice and raw foods. This change gives us more energy, helps us avoid sickness, live longer, sleep better, and speeds up our metabolisms. Quality of life will also be greatly improved and you will look and feel much more alive than ever before. A juice cleanse is a great way to reset the body.

What do juice cleanses consist of and how does it work?
Our Detox Programs consist of 6 pure& raw, cold pressed juices/nut milk per day,depending on the level chosen.
Whilst on the cleanse we advise cutting out all other food and drink products, except water and non caffeinated teas.
Stay strong.. it will be worth it. Not only does it relieve your digestive system, it replenishes energy levels, many refering to the feeling simular to being rebooted.
The cleanse can easily be integrated in your daily routine.
The juices stay fresh for 3-4 days and should always be refrigerated.
How long should I cleanse for?
The process of cleansing is designed to give your body a break, so regardless of the duration, it is always beneficial.
We have 1, 3 and 35 day cleanses available and can provide longer routines upon request, however we suggest 3 days as this maximises the benefits whilst not disrupting your life for too long (going out and watching your friends eat dinner without you isn't much fun!)
1 day cleanse- A one day cleanse is ideally for those who have done a longer cleanse before and whose bodies and palates have been reset already. It is to maintain a healthy lifestyle and to give your body rest from digestion once a week, every week.
3 day cleanse- This will reset your system, cleanse your palate, liver, heart and entire body. After 3 days, your body will start self digestion and will start doing this by getting rid of diseased cells and tissues first. In addition to resetting your body, it's a fast way to lose weight.
5 day cleanse- The longer you cleanse, the deeper the cleanse will be, the more weight you will lose, the more cells get rejuvenated.
Level1-Soft / Level2-Medium / Level3-Hard- Whether you choose to do a 1 day cleanse or do a 3 or 5 day cleanse, all of them can be ordered as a soft, medium or a hard cleanse.

What to do before, during and after your juice cleanse
Pre cleanse - To make the most of your juice cleanse, start to eliminate meat, dairy, starchy foods, caffeine, refined sugar, and alcohol 2 - 3 days before your cleanse. This way your body won’t go into shock in the change of diet and will ease into the detoxification process. Fill up on leafy greens, fruit, nuts and seeds and eat raw as much as possible.
During your Cleanse - Drink a juice every two hours or when you feel hungry. Keep drinking water and natural herb cleansing tea in between your raw juices. For a deeper detox, give your body rest and only do light exercise such a yoga or meditation. If you wish to loose more weight then you should exercise more heavily.
Post cleanse - What you put into your body after your cleanse is very important. Ideally you want to keep the detoxification process going on as long as possible, therefore try to eat raw fruit and vegetables for a long as possible. The first day after your fast, start with a juice, smoothie or just by eating a piece of fruit. Then during the day add raw leafy greens, vegetables, salad and more fruit. Eat raw, vegan or vegetarian and avoid alcohol, coffee, or any other processed food ideally forever or as long as you can.
How often can you cleanse?
It is always good for your body to eliminate as many toxins as possible and fill and flush it with raw and high amounts of vitamins, minerals and enzymes.
You can basically detox as often as you like, but it is about finding the right balance for yourself.
Here are our top tips to make the most of your cleanse:
+Keep hydrated, drink lots of water and herbal tea, especially your detox tea
+To allow for optimum detoxification, do gentle exercise, go for a walk or do yoga to stretch the organs, muscles and tissues to release more toxins
+Use this time to treat yourself and use the time you normally would for meals or social activities to get a massage or go to a sauna
+Every time you feel hungry, grin and bear it. Drink lots of water or more juice and your body will start feeling full again. Keep on reminding yourself why you are doing the cleanse; for a clearer mind, more energy, no more sickness and a hotter body of course.
