Will I get instructions with my order?
Of course, we send very detailed emails to everyone prior to their cleanse.
Can I work while on a cleanse? What if I have to focus on important meetings?
Don't worry, you might feel a bit tired during the first days of your cleanse but you will not spend them in a brain fog! Just go on with your normal life and remember that your body and mind are getting a complete nourishment with our juices.
Can I exercise while on a cleanse?
Absolutely, but be a bit gentler with yourself. If you feel that you have lots of energy go for a light jog or power walk around the neighborhood. Otherwise it's always a great idea to stick to yoga or pilates for that added effect of intense breathing to help you maximize your cleanse.
Can I add extra beverages to my day of cleansing?
You can add extra drinks if you feel you need to. Just make sure that you clearly stay away from carbonated drinks, especially soda, please! You are more than welcome to add extra doses of water with lemon and herbal teas. And if you would like to order extra juices from our site to keep on hand for emergencies, feel free to go ahead and contact us.
Can I have seltzer or sparkling water?
Seltzer will contribute gas to your system, so it's not ideal - better stick to still water.
Can I drink Diet Coke?
Definitely NO. Try to drink water with lemon or herbal or herbal tea instead
Can I sweeten my tea?
If you feel you need this extra sweetness, please use only small amounts of agave, Stevia or Xylitol - it's all-natural and won't spike your blood sugar like other sweeteners.
Should I continue to take my multi-vitamins?
You are consuming about 20 lbs of freshly pressed fruits and vegetables every day, which means that this is now your "multi-vitamin."
How do I break the cleanse?
Our "How It Works" section contains everything you need to know in order to prepare for your cleanse program and break from your cleanse, and even tips to maximize the benefits during the process.
How long can my juices last?
We us an extra measure of food safety called High Pressure Processing (HPP) for our cold-pressed products. HPP is quite a big thing in the raw and unpasteurised juice world: It's a method of eliminating harmful bacteria from a liquid by applying cold pressure to the outside of the bottle. This means that our products are safer than ever without compromising their nutritional value. And because High Pressured juices enjoy an extended natural shelf life of between 10 and 28 days, you can enjoy Essentially much longer.
What order am I supposed to drink my juices in?
You drink 6 bottles per day and those bottles are clearly labeled from 1 through 6. You drink the first one (1) in the morning and the last one (6) at least two hours before you go to bed. Usually customers feel best when they consume their beverages approximately two hours apart. The same order is repeated for every day of the cleanse.
Does it really matter what order I drink the juices?
Yes, It does! The order in which you consume your juices directly effects how you absorb, assimilate, and digest nutrients.
How should I store my juice?
In your fridge. If you want to take your juices to work or to the gym keep them chilled with icepacks in a cooler bag. We also offer re-usable Essentially cooler bags on our website.
Can I chew gum during the cleanse?
Ideally, not. Chewing gum contributes to gas in your system and "confuses" the digestive process. Through the chewing impulse your stomach is getting ready for food that isn't coming.
I can't get the Green Juice down... is it okay if I just skip them?
Sorry, this is a clear No Go! The Green Juice is delicious and the workhorse of each Essentially Cleanse. The chlorophyll in the Green Juice attaches to toxins and heavy metals and helps remove them from your body. It also increases your blood's oxygen-carrying capacity by stimulating red blood cell production. Power through it; it's got all the good stuff.
I haven't gone to the bathroom at all, and already on day two. Is that normal?
This and the opposite are completely normal side effects of a cleanse. Reduced input means reduced output. Make sure you stay well hydrated. Why not enhance your Essentially Juice Cleanse with a Colon Hydrotherapy. If you're up for it, there is no better time to have a colonic than now. It might sound a little bit scary, but a colonic is safe, gentle and highly effective before, during and after a cleanse.
