JUICE CLEANSE FAQ

What are the benefits of juice cleansing?

Juice cleanses flood your body with essential nutrients and living enzymes. At first you might wonder what you got yourself into with your juice cleanse, but in a day or two your body will be thanking you and revealing all the cleanse’s benefits.

 

They include:

more radiant skin

more mental clarity

more energy

a stronger immune system

a lighter, cleaner, happier you!

That’s because your body is only getting all the healthy vitamins, nutrients, minerals, antioxidants, and enzymes it needs, while avoiding all the foods that weigh you down: allowing you to feel refreshed, revitalized and rejuvenated.

Q.  Will a juice cleanse help me break some of my bad dietary habits?

A.  Definitely. Cleanses help you break bad habits, whatever they may be: junk foods, salt, sugar cravings, smoking, you name it. The way a juice cleanse can accomplish this is by helping your body reset to its natural state. A juice cleanse will leave you with a renewed and refreshed outlook on your health and eating habits, helping you to live the healthiest (and tastiest) life that you can.

Q.  Will a cleanse help me lose weight?

A.  Yes, weight loss can be a benefit of juice cleansing. More importantly, juice cleanses allow your body to detox. This means getting rid of toxins and getting your body back to a more balanced state. Over time, with more routine lifestyle changes and more regular consumption of Cold Pressed Juices and Superfood Smoothies, this could certainly lead to lowering the number on the scale.

• Juice cleanses flood your body with an incredible amount of nutrients, giving you an opportunity to kickstart your journey to a healthier you! If your intent and focus is in this area, a cleanse can lead to more permanent lifestyle changes about what you’re eating and how you’re treating your body.

Q.  Are there any risks associated with cleanses?

A.  Cleansing is not for everyone. And we definitely encourage you to talk to your healthcare provider to see if it is right for you. But if you are in good health, a cleanse should not only be safe, but provide you with the essential vitamins, enzymes, and nutrients that your body needs. Swing by our shop any time to ask questions and talk to one of our top notch juice consultants to help pick the cleanse that works best for you!

• And if you’re not quite there yet, no worries! Pick up one (or many) of our cold pressed juices. Even if you decide not to cleanse, your body will still get a ton of vitamins and nutrients. And, oh yeah, they taste great!

Q.  Who shouldn’t cleanse?

A.  People with diabetes, pregnant women, or those with allergies to any of our ingredients should not try a cleanse. We aren’t doctors or nutritionists, and don’t try to be. We know the power of a great cleanse and want to share it with others, but please reach out to your healthcare provider to make sure a cleanse is right for you. Come by The Big Squeezy at any time and we will answer any questions you might have and help you pick a cleanse that’s right for you!

Q.  Can I supplement the juices with other foods during a cleanse?

A.  Yes, if you absolutely have to. Digestion of solid food requires more energy than any other process in the human body. By consuming little or no solid foods in a juice cleanse, you allow the freed up energy to effectively cleanse and help heal your system. If you do feel that you have to supplement your juice cleanse, we recommend having one of our Superfood Smoothies or delicious Protein Shakes. Just give it a shot and see for yourself!

Q.  Doesn’t my body need fiber?

A.  We all need a break from time to time, and so does our body from fiber. Fiber is an important part of a balanced diet, but during a cleanse we avoid fiber intake in order to give our digestive system a well deserved break. Not needing to digest fiber frees up lots of energy, which your body intuitively uses to cleanse and heal itself. And when that happens, you just can’t help from feeling good!

Q.  Will I get enough protein while cleansing?

A.  Yes, dark leafy greens and many of our other ingredients are packed with proteins and also provide you with the essential enzymes to breakdown those proteins. Our raw almond milk products are also packed with abundant protein and essential minerals. So have no fear, protein is in there!

Q.  When will I notice a difference?

A.  It depends on where you started before your cleanse. If you eat fast and processed foods on a regular basis, you will feel the effects quite soon. Those on a diet of whole and natural foods, will likely take longer to notice a difference. The more toxins in your body before the cleanse, the faster you will feel the effects. If you’re wondering what you’re feeling is normal, don’t hesitate to call or email us with your questions!

Q.  What should I do if I have questions during my cleanse?

A.  Call, email or come in and see us and ask any questions you need! We have trained juice consultants on hand at all times. We believe in leading healthy lives, and are committed to helping you become the healthiest you!
