What happens after I have completed my cleanse plan?
Easing out of your cleanse is a very important process, as your digestive system and stomach need to be accustomed to solid food again. Introduce solid food very gradually without overindulging especially after the first few days of the cleanse (if you wish to celebrate this victory) and make sure to chew really well. Raw fruits & vegetables are recommended for the initial 1-2 days, followed by homemade vegetable broth on the 3rd day and steamed healthy cooked meals thereafter. It is best to take at least 3-5 days to return into a full healthy diet, so that your stomach and digestive system can slowly regain its digestive and absorptive functions without you experiencing any indigestion or bloatedness. Remember that the most important thing is to listen to your body and not to overeat or binge on food.
Why am I more aware of unhealthy food after my cleanse?
This is one of the long-term rewards of completing a cleanse because you are more sensitive to what you put into your body especially unhealthy food and you will not crave for them as much as you used to. After a cleanse, your body has been washed, clean and restored thus having far less tolerance to health-damaging food. Having a healthy body and mindset limits may sometimes limit your ability to endure what you were previously free to indulge in but it will keep your body looking great, and you feeling fresh and full of energy.

How should I store my juices?
Please store your juices into your refrigerator immediately upon delivery, as it is absolutely important and essential that your juices stay cold since they are raw and unpasteurized.
Can I exercise during a cleanse?
Of course and we certainly encourage you to do so as well. Be careful however to stay away from strenuous activities and don’t push yourself too hard in the gym. Brisk walking, yoga, swimming, and other light activities are highly recommended to keep your body moving that will enhance the detoxification and cleansing process.
What if I feel like giving up and lack motivation during my cleanse?
Write down a list of goals you wish to achieve from your juice cleanse for example weight loss, looking hot for a date, fitting into that dream gown and post-it in your notebook, office desk or anywhere prominent as a reminder of why you are undergoing a cleanse. If you need someone to talk to, we are just a phone call away ready and willing to support you on this exciting and life-changing journey.
Can I cheat during a cleanse?
We know that a juice cleanse may not be the easiest thing to accomplish and if you really can’t resist the temptation to eat something, try to tame the munchies with a few celery stalks, raw almonds, a couple of cucumber slices, warm vegetable broth or a half cup of black coffee. Pick yourself up and get back on track as soon as possible with your next bottle of juice, while thinking about and reminding yourself about all the awesome vitamins, minerals and nutrients you are providing your body.
What if I get hungry during the cleanse?
Our juices tend to be filling for your tummy but you may still find yourself hungry because your body is probably not accustomed to consuming only liquid as compared to large amounts of solid food before your cleanse. Do not fret as the hunger pangs should be fleeting and it’s all about mind over matter; there are ways you can cope with the hunger. Drink your juices slowly and in sips allowing the body to assimilate the vital nutrients and vitamins that will reduce your hunger pangs. Try to shift your mindset of the juice cleanse from depriving yourself of solid food to providing your body and mind with a wholesome, nutritious balanced meal. In addition, consume plenty of water or decaffeinated herbal teas as needed to hydrate, replenish and fill yourself up.
What about all the controversies posted online?
Juice Cleansing is often being misunderstood as a health practice especially in recent years when there has been a huge surge in popularity of juice cleanses due to all the positive testimonials and life-changing stories out there. Even celebrities have been embracing juice cleanses and making it a part of their regular diet and lifestyle. There are always 2 sides to a story and with every product out there in the market, there will be both positive and negative reviews.
In fact, there are far greater personal/individual positive, life-changing testimonials from those who have undergone a juice cleanse than controversies posted by writers/editors who might not have gone through a juice cleanse themselves to experience the health benefits it can provide. Additionally, juice cleanses are safer, healthier, more beneficial and provide a greater abundance of essential vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants and minerals than other weight loss pills/methods, traditional fasts & diets that are being offered today. When used carefully and wisely, juice cleansing can be a beautiful, nourishing tool to improve your health by breaking down acidic waste toxic matter and rejuvenating your body at a cellular level. The results are reflected in a healthier, radiant, vibrant, glowing you!
Is Juice Cleansing Safe?
Juice cleansing has been advocated by the most respected health practices for centuries, while our juices are being specially formulated by a certified nutritionist to ensure that you obtain both a safe and effective detoxification process. Juice cleansing is safe if you do not fall under the category of “Who is not suitable for a cleanse”, and seek professional medical advice or consult a doctor first if you are suffering from any existing medical conditions not listed above or is currently on medication. You should also ensure that you follow the guidelines provided as closely as possible. Juice cleansing can be detrimental if not approached correctly, without prior preparation, insufficient knowledge and if its practice is being abused. By fully understanding how a juice cleanse works, when to use it and considering your individual requirements, needs, health history, emotional and social considerations, you can approach juice cleansing in a safe and effective manner.
What if I’m on medication?
Seeking professional medical advice or contacting your doctor before beginning a Juice Cleanse is always suggested. In the event that you are on any medication, it is even more important and necessary that you consult your doctor’s advice before starting on a cleanse plan.
Who is not suitable for a cleanse?
Cleansing is great for most people. There are a few exceptions, however. If you currently have any serious health challenges, suffer from or are experiencing the symptoms of any of the following then a juice cleanse plan is not suitable for you
• Lactating mothers
• Malnourished and underweight
• Anyone under the age of 18
• Excessive fatigue
• Low blood sugar
• Heart failure
• Kidney failure
• Liver failure
• Eating disorders (bulimia, anorexia nervosa)
• Immunity deficiency
• Chronic degenerative disease
• Stomach ulcer
• Before or after a surgery
For any other health issues not stated above, it is highly recommended that you consult a doctor to determine if a nutritional Juice Cleanse is suitable with your condition. And remember, just because a cleanse plan might not be suitable for you right now doesn’t mean that you can’t benefit from our whole range of nutritional juices as a supplement to your regular diet.
Who should cleanse?
A juice cleanse is perfect for any active adult over the age of 18, looking to kick-start a healthy regime, detoxify your body and increase your energy to look and feel fabulous. We want to be a part of your healthy lifestyle and thus we are here to be a friend, supporting and guiding you along this journey to a healthier, vibrant glowing you. That being said, there are some who will not be suitable for a cleanse as reviewed in the next question “Who is not suitable for a cleanse”. In any case that you are unsure, do consult your doctor or seek professional medical advice before embarking on your cleanse. However we do have a range of Juices for everyday consumption as a supplement to your regular diet that you can benefit from.
What about my necessary needed intake of fiber and protein?
Our juices contain minimal fiber to give your body time to work hard at flushing toxins out while providing you with a boost of energy. The reason being that while fiber is a helpful aide, it uses important energy and slows down the digestive process. This is why you are likely to experience an increase in energy during your cleanse. To score brownie points, a plant-based diet contains plant proteins that assimilate much better in your body. The building blocks of protein known as amino acids are found in all the fruits and vegetables used to produce The Juice Kit juices.
Will I become protein deficient?
No, as cleansing is a natural process where your body breaks down unhealthy cells, all essential substances that are mostly protein, which are then being reused and conserved. In addition as an interesting fact, your body has enough protein reserves for a 30-day water fast or longer.
How many calories will the cleanse offer each day?
Our Juice plans offers approximately 900-1100 calories per day where the count varies on the juices provided. Do remember that counting calories with raw juices is not the same with the calories you count on your regular diet of cooked and/or processed foods. The body will know how to assimilate all the calories that you receive in raw live juices and thus nothing will be wasted.
Will Cleansing make my tummy flatter?
Definitely! as cleansing helps your tummy to recover its natural elasticity from past years of overeating, causing the muscles supporting your stomach to have lost their natural elasticity. Cleansing restores flatness to your tummy, as you will be happy and satisfied with lesser food rather than needing more to fill yourself up compared to the past, while making wiser decisions on food intake at the same time.
Will I gain all my weight back after the cleanse?
It all depends on your diet and lifestyle after the cleanse. Our Juice Cleanse plans are the perfect way to kick-start a healthy, balanced diet and exercise regime. If you reintroduce a clean, healthy, lean body back to an unhealthy diet and sedentary lifestyle, then the chances of you gaining all the weight back will be high.
Here is the good news! Cleansing renews and heals internally where any real change must begin, so you have shed more than just inches of fat. Rather you have exercised a new authority over food, changed your lifestyle, regained self- confidence and accomplished something you never have thought possible before.
How much weight will I lose?
This varies and is dependent on your body, metabolic system and other factors: the faster your metabolism, the faster the weight loss. Generally, most people will lose as much as 1-2kg per day initially and as your cleanse continues, the average weight loss is about 0.5kg per day.
How will I feel during a cleanse?
Effects of a Juice Cleanse are varied according to different individuals uniquely. You might feel an increase in energy levels, decrease in unhealthy cravings, improved sleep patterns, glowing skin, peace of mind, improved metabolism, weight loss, normalized blood pressure and cholesterol levels and strengthened immunity. However, there might be some standard ‘side-effects’ that are not so pleasant such as headaches, fatigue, irritability that may be the result of caffeine withdrawal if caffeine intake isn’t gradually reduced prior to starting the cleanse. Following the guidelines to prepare for your cleanse can help to minimize these symptoms. Other symptoms may include constipation, diarrhea, skin eruptions, increased urinary output, abdominal cramping, rash, cold sores, dry mouth, bad breath, nausea. These negative symptoms are more pronounced if you are currently consuming mostly processed/unhealthy foods or are participating in a longer cleanse. Be reminded that while you may experience some negative symptoms, they are a direct result of your body reacting to the cleanse process effectively as an opportunity to remove toxins and restore natural balances with the help of the juices. In any case that you need support or assistance, do reach out to us and if you experience any serious adverse unusual reactions, immediately discontinue the cleanse and seek medical attention.
Will I need to use the bathroom often?
Since a Juice Cleanse directly impacts your digestive system, it is normal to expect increased bowel movements (2-3 times per day) and urinary output, as this is the means by which the body removes waste and toxins. If you have decided to choose a cleanse plan with the colosan powder, you might experience heightened bowel movements due to its natural laxative effect that allows for optimal elimination in the digestive system and colon. However, it is not uncommon for bowel movements to slow down during a cleanse (if you have decided not to use the coloson powder), so necessary elimination could be encouraged with a supplement (colosan powder), enema kits, and professional colon hydrotherapy.
Can I choose a cleanse plan without the colosan powder but with the other supplements?
Yes. The colosan powder is meant to remove all the accumulated waste and toxins in the colon and so this might produce a laxative effect and increased bowel movements. Colon cleansing is important especially during a Juice Cleanse because toxins are mobilized from the tissues and they must be eliminated from the body through stools (and urine and sweat) or they may be reabsorbed into the blood stream and body. If you are worried that the colosan powder might interfere with your daily routine, we highly recommend the use of enema kits or colon hydrotherapy by trained professionals as an alternative.
Can I choose a cleanse plan without the supplements?
Yes. If in any case you do not wish to partake of the supplements that we provide, you can choose a cleanse plan without the supplements.
Why are supplements provided?
To enhance and support The Juice Kit experience and the detoxification process, maximizing the potential benefits you will receive during and after completing the cleanse. All our supplements are 100% vegan and natural, sourced from reputable health suppliers both locally and from abroad.
How will I be supported before, during and after my cleanse?
Once you have signed up for a cleanse plan, we will email you a detailed guideline on how to prepare prior to your cleanse. During your cleanse, our team will provide you with encouragement and check on your progress via emails and phone calls. You could also drop us a call (9.00am-6.00pm) or email if you require additional assistance and support. When you have completed your cleanse, you will receive additional guidelines on how to ease out of your cleanse and the choice of diet and lifestyle recommended during the initial days following completion of your cleanse. Throughout the before, during and after cleanse, The Juice Kit Support Team is always delighted and ready to assist and support you as best as we can.
What are the benefits of juices over raw fruits and vegetables?
Instant nourishment! Compared to raw fruits and vegetables, we quite often don’t remember to chew our food properly and digestion actually starts in the mouth. With juices however, it is like drinking a predigested meal where all the essential vitamins and nutrients are easily assimilated and absorbed into our bloodstream.
Fruit juices speed up metabolism to release waste quickly and have an alkalizing effect (acid-neutralizing) on the blood; citrus fruits and their juices in particular are rich in alkaline salts, mainly potassium. High-fiber fruits aid digestive regularity and stabilize insulin levels. Together, these properties of fruits reduce fat storage, speed metabolism, and minimize sugar cravings. Fresh vegetable juices provide the body with necessary vitamins, minerals, and enzymes to power the natural detoxifying activities of cells, most effective for cleansing blood and tissues, neutralizing acids, and rebuilding cells.
What is so special about The Juice Kit juices compared to home made juices and other freshly made juices in the market?
First and foremost, our juices are produced using The Norwalk Juicer (best juicer in the market), also known as the Rolls Royce of juicer as it utilizes a hydraulic press of about 4000 pounds (2 tons) worth of pressure to cold-press every single fruit and vegetable. This ensures that each single drop of goodness contains the maximum amount of nutrients, vitamins, minerals and live enzymes and energy for your body, differing significantly from the centrifugal/domestic juicer that applies high heat destroying the integrity of the nutrients. Secondly, to ensure that your body undergoes optimal detoxification, cellular repair and renewal, our juices are nutritionally designed by the renowned Cherie Calbom, who is a certified nutritionist and juice expert for more than 20 years. Lastly, all our fruits and vegetable produce is 100% organic.
What is so special about Juice Cleansing compared to other detox plans in the market?
Juice cleansing works differently because in the process of removing harmful toxins that inhibits the body’s restorative abilities, it also floods the body with nutrients, vitamins and minerals that energize and promotes the natural healing and renewal at a cellular level. Not only will you receive invaluable health benefits, it also changes your long-term relationship with your regular diet and body by shifting you away from bad habits (like too much unhealthy, fatty, fried foods, alcohol, coffee, lack of exercise) and help foster healthier habits, lifestyle and exercise regime after your have completed a cleanse.
Is Juice Cleansing just a fad
Detoxification and cleansing has been a natural way of healthy living since ancient times, long before convenient processed foods, stressful lifestyles, and impurities in the environment. Certified nutritionists and respected health practices also encourage regular cleansing in order to promote rejuvenation, vitality and a renewed state of mind. You can be assured that our 100% organic, raw, fresh juices provide the body with loads of vital nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants to promote good health and energize the body for looking and feeling great.
How is juice cleansing different from fasting/dieting?
Traditional fasting and harsh dieting deprives the body of much-needed vitamins, nutrients and minerals, inhibiting your detox organs from functioning properly. You will end up not receiving sufficient energy and are left feeling undernourished, deprived, empty and lethargic. The Juice Kit's juices on the other hand provide your body with vital essential nutrients it needs to function optimally, paving the way for maximum detoxification while reducing the work and effort required by the digestive system. Your body can focus on renewing and repairing itself supported by the array of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. The juices also provide live enzymes, increased energy and a great beginning to a healthy diet, lifestyle and exercise regime.
Can I just purchase the juices but not the cleanse plans?
Yes certainly! Our “Daily Juicing” range of juices allow you to choose the number of daily juice supplies (maximum of 5 days) you wish to order as a nutritional supplement to your regular diet. Each daily supply comes with 6 bottles of juices. You also get to customize the juices you wish to have for example choosing your preference for either the “Green Champions” (made up of All Green Juices), “Project Beauty Star” (Skinny Genes juices) or our special “Trinity Galore” (2 Green Juices, 2 Spicy Lemonade, 2 Nut Mylk)
What is the difference between a 3-day and 5-day Juice Cleanse?

A Juice Cleanse is also recommended if you feel that you have overindulged after a holiday, a festive season, nights out partying or just transiting into a new life like preparing for YOUR BIG DAY or a new job!

Take up our Juice Cleanse challenge today with our Cleansing Kit and start feeling terrific tomorrow!
How often should I cleanse?
The frequency of your cleanses depends entirely on how you feel and what your body requires. Some might choose to go through a cleanse as the seasons changes, some 2-4 times a year and some monthly, but ultimately the choice is yours. We do recommend doing a full cleanse (3/5 day cleanse) once every 2-3 months to renew and restore our cells, tissues, digestive system and organs for improved immunity. However, we do have to caution that cleansing can get very addictive once you start to experience the amazing benefits it can do for your body, diet and lifestyle choices. So listen attentively to your body and you will know just when about it is the right time to cleanse again.
How long should I go on a juice cleanse?
In general, we recommend a 3-day cleanse plan for those who are new to cleansing and a 5-day cleanse for those who wish to achieve maximum benefits and results. If you wish to extend the number of days for your cleanses, we certainly are happy to customize one for you.
Even after your cleanse plan ends, we suggest that you continue to make juicing a part of your lifestyle. That is why we provide daily supplies of juices from “Daily Juicing“, perfect for those who do not wish to undergo a juice cleanse but want to add juices as a nutritional supplement to their regular diet.
