Frequently Asked Questions About Juice Cleansing
So, you’re interested in juice cleansing? Excellent! We’re excited that you’re taking the time to learn more about it. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions for people embarking on their first-ever juice cleanse.
Will I be in the bathroom all day if I do a juice cleanse?
Some people find great relief from constipation while juice cleansing. If you are someone who has regular bowel movements, you may find yourself heading to the bathroom more often.
Can I drink the juice and still chew my food?
If you’re someone who cannot do without texture (and won’t cleanse without the option), consider the following plan(s). These plans are ideal for the newbie, socialite and the cleanser that wants to partake in a community juice cleanse but is a little freaked out or whose life is too demanding.
The juice + food plan.
- Drink 4 juices/day for 3-5 days or 3 juices/day for 3-5 days.
- Feel free to eat vegetables and fruits throughout the day, and end the day with protein (fish, chicken, nuts).
Are your juices and cleanses dairy-free?
Yes! Our Cashew Dream may look incredibly creamy, but it’s entirely plant-based.
Is it safe to cleanse while I’m pregnant?
We highly suggest adding juice to your diet while you’re pregnant, however, we do not recommend juice cleansing. Though the flood of nutrients is incredibly beneficial, you and your growing child require more calories during pregnancy than a cleanse would provide. We recommend supplementing your diet with 1-2 juices per day to get the benefits of the juice while also getting the calories you need to support your health and the healthy growth of your child.
I noticed my urine/bowel movements are red after drinking the beet juice. Is this normal?
Don’t be alarmed! Beet juice contains carotenes that may turn your urine and bowel movements red. This is totally normal. Beets provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and detoxification support and have been shown to increase stamina during exercise by increasing blood flow.
