Improves Immune System
A weak immune system leaves us vulnerable to sickness, affecting our quality of life and productivity. Regular Cleansing helps strengthen our immune system which allows it to fight off infection.
Plenty of water is locked up in our muscles with glycogen when we juice cleanse. i.e. consume our juices with low calories, our bodies use up those glycogen stores and we lose the water weight with it, thereby kick starting a weight loss programme.
Detoxes the Body
Continued exposure to preservatives, pesticides, industrial waste, environmental pollutants & metals affects the immune system & bodies and leads to disease. Cleansing helps the liver to flush out these toxins.
Environmental toxins are responsible for may neurological illnesses, heart diseases, cancers to name a few. We have inbuilt detox functions in our bodies to deal with the chronic diseases, however, those systems are constantly overloaded and cleaning helps and improves these natural body functions.
Increases Energy Levels
Cleansing Increases your mental, emotional and physical energy.
Are our bodies are capable of cleansing naturally?
If you’re worried that juice cleansing is just a fad, consider that humans have been cleansing since the beginning of time! Cleansing is a way to give your digestive system a break, and allow it to release the toxins that have been building up in order to heal. Historically, cleansing was used as a way to bring balance back into people’s lives. While cleansing has become increasingly popular among celebrities and the masses in the last few years, it is certainly not a trend.
Will I really be able to handle a cleanse?
While committing to a cleanse program requires a level of dedication, it is not designed in any way to starve you. The goal is to feed through highly nutritious liquids. Believe in yourself. Although this is a departure from ways you are used to feeding yourself, you will be thankful you did it. And do not forget that you can always call or email us for support.
Will I lose weight?
Weight loss is completely individual to the cleanser and is dependent on your current weight and eating habits. Some will be surprised by their weight loss, others will be disappointed. Weight-loss should not be the focus of your cleanse.
How should I store my juices?
All our juices are made fresh to order and then refrigerated immediately to lock in the enzymes and nutrients. Because we do not pasteurise and preserve our juices this ensures that the juices do not spoil. Your juices will be delivered straight to your doorstep in a cool box with ice packs. Just take them out of the cool box and put them straight into your refrigerator. Remember our juices have a shelf life of 3 days from day of delivery.
How come other juices on the market have a longer shelf life than yours?
The juices you see on the market with longer shelf lives will have been put through a process called High Pressure Processing (HPP) to extend shelf live. We on the other hand have made a choice from the get go to ensure that our customers fully benefit from our juices because we use fresh & organic ingredients when cold pressing the juices and do not pasteurize, do not add any preservatives and do not use HPP. This ensures that our juices are teaming with live enzymes and nutrients. However the fact that we do not pasteurize our juices means that they can only stay fresh for 4 days at most.
What is HPP
HPP means High Pressure Processing. This is a method of using pressure to kill bacteria to extend shelf life of juice and other foods. If you come across Cold Pressed Juices in supermarkets, its highly likely that it’s been processed using HPP. We do not use this process to ensure that our juice at Vitalise is most fresh for maximum nutritional benefit to our customers. We also believe that juice should be consumed fresh and not several weeks after pressing.
Can I cleanse when I am on medication
If you are on medication, you should check with your doctor before starting any cleanses.
Can I do a cleanse if I am pregnant?
Our cleanse programs are designed for all healthy people; however, there are certain individuals who should not partake. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should not restrict your diet to liquids, as you need extra calories and nutrients in your diet, although a cleanse is NOT suitable, drinking a juice to add to your healthy eating plan is a great idea.
How do I break the cleanse?
Please refer to our “Pre & Post Cleanse instructions” for everything you need to know in order to prepare for your cleanse program, break from your cleanse and even tips to maximise the benefits during the process.
Why has my juice separated?
Because it’s natural! Just give it a shake. Most store bought drinks don’t separate because they have stabilisers added in. We prefer to shake our juice rather than drink chemicals!
I’m allergic/have an intolerance to an ingredient in your juices. Can I tailor my cleanse?
Depending on your allergy, we are happy to accommodate your juices as best we can. This may be subject to an extra fee due to the extra work to tailor make your juices. Please contact us directly for more information.
Can I consume other drinks whilst cleansing?
We recommend that you drink plenty of water during your cleanse. We also recommend that you drink herbal teas. We highly advise avoiding other drinks such as sugary and highly caffeinated drinks and alcohol.
