We encourage everyone and anyone, new and experienced, to partake in our juice cleanse. Cleansing is a great way for all of us to gently detoxify and give our digestive system a rest while flooding our cells with the nutrients and phytochemicals to rebuild healthy tissue. With that being said, we don’t recommend juice cleanses to pregnant women, children or anyone with serious health conditions. Please see next question for more details.

Juice cleansing is not advised if you are: pregnant or nursing, diabetic or severe hypoglycemic, suffering from severe kidney disease, liver disease, oxalate kidney stones, anorexia nervosa, the immunosuppressed, are experiencing significant weight loss due to serious illness such as cancer, AIDS, or other serious infections, mitochondrial disease, those taking blood thinners, chemotherapy, diuretics, insulin, blood pressure, or long term steroid medications. People with these conditions may be able to add fresh juices as a part of their healthy everyday diet, consulting a physician prior to drinking our juice.

All of our juices are 100% organic, nutritionally dense, and loaded with natural vitamins, minerals antioxidants, and phytochemicals. The calorie content varies from juice to juice, but we try to focus more on the nutrient content rather than the calorie count. Fruit juices and nut milks can contain more calories as opposed to vegetable juices, which tend to be much lower in calories and sugar. If calories and sugar are a concern for you, we suggest our delicious The Greenist, The Original, The Family Farm and The Lemon-aid. For more information on the nutritional content of each specific juice, please visit our shop page for full details.

We use a commercial Cold Press juicing machine called the X1 from Goodnature.

Grocery store juice contain preservatives, are heated, processed, Grocery store juices are processed, contain preservatives, are heated, and have been sitting on a shelf indefinitely. Most of the time, they have added sugar, often in the form of high fructose corn syrup, and contain very little actual juice. These juices retain a minimal amount of their initial nutrient value and are essentially fruity sugar water.

Fresh cold-pressed juices, on the other hand, are prepared fresh daily using a special cold-press process with minimal exposure to nutrient-damaging heat, light, and time. They contain all the live enzymes, antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals with no additives – just as nature intended.

There are two types of fibre: insoluble fiber and soluble fibre. Insoluble fiber such as bran stays intact throughout the digestive system. Soluble fiber turns into a gel within the body, acting like a gentle broom to clear away toxins, balance blood sugar, keeps you feeling full, lowers cholesterol, and keeps the digestive system moving without irritation.

While many people believe that juicing removes all of the fiber from fresh produce, it actually only removes the insoluble fiber. The gentler soluble fiber remains within the juice to flush away impurities and keep things moving without the potential GI (gastrointestinal) irritation of insoluble fibre.

This may come as a surprise, but our body does not need as much protein as many of us are led to believe, nor is it essential to eat meat, dairy, or soy in order to get enough protein in your diet. Truth is, if we’re eating enough whole food calories (e.g., raw vegetables, nuts, seeds, and algae) we’re almost certainly getting enough proteinto sustain yourself.

Additionally, cooking decreases the amount of absorbable protein in food by 50% or more, so fresh raw vegetable juices are among the most absorbable, bioavailable forms of protein. Organic raw spirulina is one of the most concentrated forms of protein on the planet, and has been a main traditional protein source in a variety of cultures for many years.

If you’re concerned about your protein intake, consider adding a shot of spirulina per day to supplement your cleanseor try our Pacific.*
*only if you do not have a seafood or iodine allergy.

We get all of our produce from Pro Organics, our nuts and supplements from Real Raw Food, and connect with local farmers whenever possible. If, for whatever reason we’re not able to purchase organic produce, we do not make the juice until the organic produce comes back into season.

Only additives can prevent the natural settling process and we don’t use any in our juices. Before drinking, be sure to give your juice a good shake!
