Over a metric ton of pressure (2,500lbs) is then applied to all produce through our pneumatic commercial cold-press, extracting the juice without producing any friction or heat. This method ensures the raw fruit and vegetables are in their natural state with the maximum level of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and nutrients possible.

FAQs About Juice Detoxification

  • Influx of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients from fruits and vegetables
  • Cleanses body of many toxins
  • Gives a break from the most energy consuming bodily function while at rest - digestion
  • Deep tissue cleanse and nourishment allows for healthier hair and skin
  • Builds self-discipline
  • Helps break food addictions
  • Helps be more in tune with your body
  • For many, reduces the overall caloric intake which helps shed excess weight (There are minimal empty calories in the juice unlike those found in many solid foods. This fuels the body efficiently without a need for a larger caloric intake.)
  • Concentrated form of anti-oxidants which have been shown to strengthen the immune system

(typical results are listed below)

  • Day 1 – It is similar to the first time back in the gym after taking time off. One day should help get the body back on track. A one day cleanse is good for maintenance after reaching a desired goal. It is also a great way to sample the program.
  • Day 2 – For most, the second day is the toughest of the entire regimen as the body fights heightened withdrawal from normal eating habits. Two days of cleansing is also recommended for maintenance, or for first timers that are nervous about being able to complete three days or more.
  • Day 3 – The third day is when the body typically adjusts to the cleanse. A majority of the toxins and waste in the body have now been expelled. Each sip of juice sends a heightened burst of energy into the system. With a near empty digestive system, the body feels rejuvenated, many sleep much better, and the body uses the saved energy from the lack of digestion towards other physical activity. This is generally considered to be the easiest day of the detox.
  • Day 4 – Completion of the fourth day starts to realize even greater benefits. Cleansing continues internally as well as penetrating deeper into the skin. Unhealthy eating habits, food addictions, and cravings are are starting the process of being reversed
  • 5 days or more –  Most are now fully in tune with their body. Not all has been cleansed in 4 days or less. Further benefits are realized with each added day, and creates the best chance to retain long term healthy lifestyle changes.  Many that complete this regimen can truly say that they have accomplished a lifestyle change. Besides further physiological benefits, many now enjoy an elevated spiritual experience with advanced mental and emotional benefits.

For those that will be active and exercising during the detox, the almond mylks is highly recommended as it provides added substance and amino acids to help the body rebuild after physical activity. It also provides added substance for those that are nervous about being hungry on the juice cleanse.

  • Beginner Cleanse – Some of these bottles will contain a higher fruit content. Recommended for a beginner as it is much easier on the palette of those that are not accustomed to the taste of vegetable juice.
  • Intermediate Cleanse – Some of these bottles will contain much higher vegetable content. Some of the included bottles are 100% vegetable juice. Most of these contain less natural sugars due to the lowered fruit juice content. Recommended for those that regularly include vegetables and vegetable juice in their diet.

Listen to your body and eat if it is absolutely necessary. Otherwise, please remember that the main factor of the detox process is to cleanse the system and give it a break from the digestive process.

We cannot guarantee weight loss; however, many people do lose weight while on our cleanse because of the low calorie count per day (approximately 1100 -1450 calories each detox day). 

Many people do on a short juice fast of seven days or fewer. The saved energy from the absence of digestion can be redirected towards working out. However, listen to your body. Some people prefer to give their body a break from exercise or strenuous physical activities during the detoxification process.

Protein is an important part of our body structure. How it is taken in the body is the important matter to focus on. Amino acids are what the body requires. Plants and fruit have all the required amino acids to build the protein that the body needs. Although it can be used as such, the body does not require protein to make protein. It requires amino acids to make protein. Furthermore, many people consume entirely too much protein. In doing so, the excess protein is stored in the body as fat or toxic waste. That is one major violation of a detoxification. Protein is also the most complex of all food elements, and is the hardest for the body to break down. When too much is consumed, the body expends much energy to break it down and digest it. That is another major violation of a detoxification, and it often leaves the body feeling sluggish. Think of some the strongest animals in the world: elephants, horses, buffalo, and gorillas. What do they eat? Vegetation, nuts, and fruit.

Many people do not feel hungry on the juice cleanse.  However, if you feel hungry or are nervous that you will, please do not hesitate to add a few more bottles of juice or cashew milk to your juice cleanse if you think you need it.   Since the program is nutritionally balanced, feel free to pick from any bottles of juice or cashew milk.  Remember, this is not about losing weight as quickly as possible. It is about building the long term habits to feel and look great for a lifetime

It is not recommended. Most store bought juice have been processed and pasteurized causing a loss in nutrients. Furthermore, many contain additives which defeats the purpose of cleansing your body of unnatural substances.

We do not recommend this. Doing this would negate the purpose of detoxifying the system of excess toxins. Please remember this is a time to revitalize and heal the body.

No. We provide plenty of juice for your nourishment, but if your body is telling you that you have had enough, please don't feel an obligation to consume it all.

We recommend a gallon a day. Many people commonly mistake thirst for hunger. On a juice cleanse, an unnecessary feeling of hunger can be very unpleasant. Also, many people will feel faint and get headaches when enough water is not consumed.

Based on your personal preference, we suggest with of the following:

  • Prepare yourself by eating only raw fruits and vegetables for 1-3 days in order to create a smoother transition to consuming all juice.

OR

  • Treat it like jumping into a cold pool on a hot summer day - just jump right in. It may seem unpleasant at the beginning, but the body will adjust.

The only thing recommended is to drink your mylk at the end of your day. 

  • Afterward, continue a healthy lifestyle ensuring enough fruit, vegetables, and fruit and vegetable juice. 
  • Upon completing your detoxification, reintroduce solid food by first eating only raw fruits and vegetables. Afterward, gradually incorporate grains, meat, and dairy products if so desired.
  • Minimize servings of fried or processed foods. If you are reintroducing them to your system, do so moderately.
  • Drink plenty of water.

It varies from person to person. People with detoxing experience have been known to detox for several weeks, and even months. However, if you are new to it, you may just want to try 1-4 days. Then give yourself a break, and then try for a longer period next time. It is very important to listen to your body. Please also consult a physician for the proper amount of days to detox.

Juice detoxifications are designed to rid your body of all unnatural substances including those found in medication. If you are scheduled or planning to take any medication, please consult with your physician.

Weekly, monthly, quarterly... There are no wrong answers. It is up to you, and what is best for your body. Again, this is another question that requires a physician's guidance.

  • Pick a time when you will not have to sacrifice major social behavior. For example, the week of Thanksgiving may not be the best choice.
  • Pick a time when you will remain busy. It has often been said that idle time is the devils workshop. The same thought process applies here. Sitting around thinking about eating solid foods is not ideal. Choose a busy week at work, or plan many activities that will keep your mind busy.

Franchising FAQS

Why re-invent the wheel? Owning a franchise allows you to crowd-source the collective experiences of all franchisees in the system to determine what works and what doesn’t. Our philosophy is that we must constantly bring value to franchisees, and one of the best ways of doing so is by capturing what works best and making sure it becomes part of our process. That is why we’re particularly confident in our concept, which delivers exceptional value to our franchisees through a variety of ways, such as:

  • By teaming up with Root System Technologies, we’ve created a custom-made software program that assists with everything from the point-of-sale system to inventory management to employee on-boarding to food production to text message marketing, and more!
  • By providing the intellectual property and operations system that’ll set you up for success – we constantly improve our system and process as we learn more and make sure that information is disseminated to our stores
  • By helping franchisees select store locations using our proprietary site selection process, which uses over 50 data points along with boots-on-the-ground to help you select a great location for your store.
  • By using our development and training programs to ensure that you open as quickly as possible while, at the same time, feeling as equipped as possible to operate your store.
  • By negotiating bulk deals and other business essentials exclusively for our franchisees.
  • By developing a brand that customers love, which drives those customers to your door, and by always improving the process every step of the way.

Join the team!

Once you find a location and sign a lease, we estimate that it will take a minimum of 120 days to open for business.

We require all owners to be personally involved for at least the first 120 days of operation, and we recommend that you have a full-time general manager from day 1 that you train to take the reins when the time comes when you can step back.
