CLEANSE FAQ

Q: My JUS JUS CLEANSE arrived and the ice packs are melted. Is it OK?

A: Yes. It's only meant to stay chilled during transit. Please, take the juices immediately out of the box and put them in your fridge. If you can, turn your fridge down to 5" to keep those enzymes cold and alive and try to store your juices in the back of your fridge.

Q: Does it really matter what order I drink the juices?

A: Yes! We always start you out with a green juice on a morning on an empty stomach. Your system will be available to assimilate the nutrients without interruption. But if you mix the order of the juices or want to drink half of your almond milk in the morning, go easy on yourself! It's all good for you!

Q: Will I be hungry on the JUS JUS CLEANSE?

A: Yes, you probably will feel some hunger in the first day or two. This is completely normal and should pass as your body acclimates to consuming liquids only. Many times, the sensations we're feeling is not really hunger. The truth is, most of us can go without solid food and be just fine. Usually, it is the feeling of a empty stomach or the ritual of eating at certain times that we mistake as hunger.

Q: Will I feel any side effects during the cleanse?

A: Some people experience headaches, dizziness, fatigue, and moodiness. This is completely normal. Drink lots of water and get plenty of rest and know that you will soon be feeling much better!

Q: Can I smoke on the JUS JUS CLEANSE?

A: I think you already know the answer to this, but we won’t tell you how to live your life. Just how we’d live ours. Smoking is not recommended.

Q: Can I drink coffee, black tea, alcohol, wine, and beer while cleansing?

A: We highly advise against consuming all of those acid-forming drinks. You'll find yourself getting much better results from the cleanse if you stick to water.

Q: How much weight will I lose?

A: The answer to this is variable. Remember, this is a nutritional cleanse designed to give your digestive system a rest and therefore allow your body to eliminate toxins. If you do lose weight, and that was something you were looking for while cleansing, then that’s just a happy side effect!

Q: Will I gain all the weight back?

A: Hopefully, if weight control is your goal, a JUS JUS CLEANSE will put you on a path towards healthier habits. Many people report being able to focus more on what they are putting into their body after a JUS JUS CLEANSE. Make this your goal in preparing for your cleanse, and ask yourself, “What am I going to do when this cleanse is over?” It’s an opportunity to “reset.”

Q: Can I do a cleanse if I am pregnant or nursing?

A: As a supplement to your current diet, yes. Alone? No. You actually need to add a LOT more calories than you normally consume while nursing. Consult with your doctor if our drinks are right for you. That said, adding our juices to your regular diet while nursing and/or pregnant will give you the added nourishment your body so desperately needs during that time.

Q: Can I take my daily medicine or antibiotics during the cleanse?

A: Normally, you may take your medicine during the cleanse but you should check with your doctor in any case. If you're taking antibiotics, a JUS JUS CLEANSE is actually the perfect partner for your antibiotics. While antibiotics fight off harmful bacteria they also deplete the body’s supply of healthy bacteria. Our cleanses are packed with nutrients that support a healthy immune system. 

Q: Won’t a cleanse slow my metabolism?

A: Yes and no. If your metabolism is fast right now, chances are it will slow a little as you are not taking in as much energy. This also depends on your body - everyone is different. On the other hand, if you have a slow metabolism, clearing out toxins opens up channels so your body functions more efficiently.

Q: How many calories are in each level?

A: Although we don't believe in calorie counting, we know it is a concern for many individuals. Please don't think of our cleanse programs a s a weight reduction diet; we want to get you our of that mentality and into an understanding that our drinks, including our fresh-pressed juices, give you increased water intake, soulful energy and optimal nourishment. That being said, each level of our cleanse offers between 900 - 1100 calories per day. The count varies from level to level by about 100 calories. However, please bear in mind that 500 calories of live juice is NOT the same 500 calories as a croissant with butter! We try to focus on the nutritional content as opposed to the calorie content; at JUS JUS, we're more about nutrition and flooding your body with live enzymes.

Q: Can I do a JUS JUS CLEANSE if I have diabetes?

A.There are many types of diabetes. Usually, regardless of the type, the answer to this is no because of the amount of sugar in the fruit juice, but you should always check with your doctor first.

Q: Can I do a JUS JUS CLEANSE if I am lactose intolerant?

A: YES!!! There are absolutely NO animal products or dairy in our juice and our delicious almond milks are a healthy, yummy alternative for those with lactose intolerance.

Q: I have a gluten allergy, can I do it?

A: Absolutely! We are gluten free. In fact there is nothing added to our juice but juice! Absolutely NO additives and 100% vegan.

Q: I'm very allergic to nuts – do you have a replacement?

A: Yes – we do cater to nut allergies. You will receive an additional juice instead. But please be aware that it is all made in the same factory.

Q: Where do I get my protein?

A: There are MANY sources of protein other than that which comes from animals. With a JUS JUS CLEANSE you'll receive protein from our green juices as well as our Almond Nut Milk. While the almond nut milk is a more obvious source of protein, don't discount the protein punch that comes from living plant foods. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and amino acids are in everything.

Q: Can I put my child on a cleanse?

A: Children should not do any type of juice cleanse or fast while they are still growing. That said, JUS JUS is an amazing addition to any diet. Cold pressed juice is always a better alternative to soda.
