Cleanse 101 - Everything you need to know!
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COLD PRESSED JUICE AND NORMAL JUICE?
Normal juicing machines produce heat in the process of extracting the liquid from the fruit or vegetable.
This causes oxidisation of the precious nutrients, minerals and enzymes, killing them and depriving the juice of many nutritional benefits.
Cold pressed juicing machines extract the juice by crushing or grating the vegetable, and then applying pressure to squeeze the liquid from the pulp retaining the all goodness.
I QUIT SUGAR… IS JUICE BAD FOR ME?
Time and time again we are shown that eating a diet high in fruits and vegetables is the key to health. And sugar exists naturally and beautifully in both.
Often store-bought juices are not only nutritionally dead, but they are packed with sugar. Even a ‘healthy’ store-bought green juice is typically packed with green apple and has at least 10g of sugar per 100ml.
All of our juices are within range <1g to 5.1g of sugar / 100ml.
We never add sugar where it isn't needed and we have tonnes of creative ingredients in our repertoire that pack flavour into our juices without too much fruit.
Looking for the lowest sugar cleanse option? Our Deep Glow Cleanse is just for you! Designed to be super alkalizing and nutrient-dense with minimal sugar.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN JUICES AND SMOOTHIES?
Cold-pressed Juice is fibre free, filtered/strained liquid squeezed from fruit and/or vegetables, smooth, not thick or chunky.
With or without the finer pulp, juice provides a more concentrated, nutrient dense liquid, requires less from the digestive process, reserving energy for detoxification and healing. Perfect for a cleanse or when illness is knocking at the door.
Smoothies are blended whole pieces of fruit and vegetables that retain the fibre. Blending the entire fruit or vege also retains the nutrients in skins, piths, and seeds.
This will slow down the absorption of sugars and helps the food travel through the digestive system. We recommend both for different uses.
Smoothies also as a part of your daily routine and as full meal replacements and juices for cleansing, fasting and for when you need a potent hit of nutrients, like when fighting a cold.
DO I NEED TO KEEP EVERYTHING COLD?
Yes. The They can be left out for a period no longer than 3 hours without compromising the integrity of the product.
During the cooler months, we do recommend allowing each juice to come to room temperature before drinking so as to not shock your systems and making digestion easier.
CAN I HEAT THE JUICES?
We love to gently heat some of our juices in winter. Be careful not to let them go over 50 degrees though as this will kill off the nutrients.
See individual juice descriptions for info on which we recommend to be consumed warm this season.
HOW MANY JUICES ARE IN A CLEANSE?
In each day of your Pure+NOOD cleanse you will receive 7 x specially curated 350ml bottles comprising of 1 elixir, 1 tonic, 1 nut mylk and 4 different vegetable based juices.
WHICH CLEANSE IS BEST FOR ME?
For a first time juice cleanser we recommend our
Radiance Reset Cleanse - This cleanse is alittle easier for first timers as it contains some of our sweeter and fruiter juices.
Deep Glow Cleanse - Slightly lower in calories and a little more intense as it contains more greens. Not for the faint hearted!
Both cleanses are tasty and contain a variety of different juices, elixirs and a nut mylk.
WHAT WILL I FEEL LIKE DURING A CLEANSE?
Depending on the level of toxicity in the body, how you prepare for your cleanse and the foods and drinks consumed before your cleanse, you may experience some detoxification symptoms.
Most commonly, headache, fatigue and irritability… or “hangriness”!! These usually subside by the end of day 2 or day 3. It is super important to keep drinking plenty of H20 during your cleanse. This along with herbal teas, can help some of these symptoms if you are experiencing them
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I DO A JUICE CLEANSE?
half day- 1 day cleanse - Weekly to monthly - support of general health and wellbeing
1-3 day - monthly to seasonally
I AM PREGNANT/BREASTFEEDING, CAN I CLEANSE?
We do not recommend juice cleansing for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Please contact your health care professional before purchasing and do your own thorough research.
You may be able to modify the cleanse to suit your bodies needs at this time. Please however note as our juices are fresh, they are not pasteurised.
IS IT OK TO EXERCISE DURING A CLEANSE?
This varies from person to person. You may find that you have plenty of energy while others may find there body is detoxifying and are lower in energy. We recommend to go by how you feel day to day. Please be mindful whilst on your cleanse you may be far lower in energy intake to what you are usually use to.
WHAT IF I NEED TO EAT MID JUICE CLEANSE?
We know that these cravings can kick in and especially on your first cleanse it can be very tough! Try to hold in there, however if you can't think lo GI snacks - nuts, avocado or our super tasty watermelon jerky! You are only human, so just try your best - we promise you'll feel good NOOD afterwards!
DO I HAVE TO GIVE UP COFFEE AND ALCOHOL DURING A CLEANSE?
To get your monies worth and give your body its best chance at detoxification and cleansing experience we do encourage you to give them up, however any reduction you can manage is better than nothing.
You simply may not feel as good as could, if you were to cut them out completely.
WILL I LOSE WEIGHT WHEN CLEANSING?
Yes and no. You will lose weight over the 3 days but this isn’t necessarily a sustainable weight loss. It will likely be from water/fluid release, as well as any cleaning out of the colon! Mostly It all depends on how you treat your body following your cleanse.
Long term weight loss from juice cleansing happens when you make it part of your lifestyle. When your body becomes more alkaline, maintaining your ideal weight becomes easier.
