How a Juice Cleanse Works
Adding juice to your diet is a way of boosting nutrition and getting back to healthy basics. Cleansing is about taking the clean eating approach a step further, giving your system a break and helping reduce your dependence on unhealthy, processed foods.
At Pressed, we provide customizable cleanse programs tailored to your nutritional history and taste buds. Choose Cleanse 1, 2, or 3 based on your goals and current diet. Or create your own plan using our customizable option. We believe that doing something good for the body, mind, and soul shouldn’t interrupt your everyday life.
Our cleanse packages consist of six, 16-ounce drinks per day. Each healthy, nutrient-dense pressed juice is made via our hydraulic press process, bottled immediately, and shipped to your door.
Each drink in your cleanse package is clearly labeled in the order you should drink it, starting with drink #1 first thing in the morning, and ending with drink #6 at least two hours before you go to bed. Most of our customers find it works best to drink their juices two hours apart, but listen to your body – it will tell you what it needs. Each juice is created to replace solid food and snacks, and you should avoid alcohol, energy drinks, caffeine and nicotine while cleansing.
Along with six variations of premium juice, you may supplement your cleanse by adding two water drinks: one with chlorophyll and the other with aloe vera. The chlorophyll water is mild in flavor and great for added hydration in between your juices – plus, chlorophyll can help rebuild red blood cells. The aloe vera water should be the last drink of your day, after the almond milk.
If you follow our lead, stay hydrated, and give yourself time to rest and relax, our cleanse will give your digestive system a much deserved break while simultaneously feeding your body the nutrients it needs.
And as always, we’re here for you! You can always contact us at INFO@PRESSEDJUICERY.COM if you have any questions or call us at 1.855.PJ.JUICE. Our knowledgeable team is here to help in any way we can.
Making the Most of Your Juice Cleanse
Whether it’s your first cleanse or your 50th, we want to share some tips to help you make the most of your experience. That said, we know everyone’s body is different, and what works for one might not work for another. So pick and choose what works best for you – after all, you know your body best.
To get the most out of your cleanse, preparation is essential. You’ll want to start weaning yourself off of your usual indulgences and make a few adjustments a few days before you start – don’t worry, it’s going to be easier than you think… and your body will thank you for it!
We all deserve a break once in a while. Think of your pre-cleanse meal plan as your way of getting your body in great shape before packing for your vacation.
It’s a sad but true fact that most of us don’t get enough water into our systems on a daily basis, but this is a key component to a successful cleanse – plus, it helps ease dry skin, irregularity and more. We recommend starting your mornings with a cup of herbal tea or warm water with lemon, drinking at least two liters of filtered water per day and ditching caffeinated drinks.
Obviously, starting a cleanse means you’re going to change your eating habits a lot, but it can help your cleanse – and be less of a shock to your system – if you make some simple alterations in the three days leading up to your start date. We recommend eating wholesome, whole foods, and skipping out on meats and poultry, refined starches (bread, white rice and pasta), dairy products, sugar, alcohol and nicotine, and sushi. So what can you eat? If cutting out all meat is a little much, supplement with fish – and enjoy fresh salads and starchy veggies. The day before you start your cleanse, try transitioning to soups and steamed or raw veggies. We also recommend supplementing your diet with fatty acids, like flaxseeds which can be added to your food or taken on their own.

During Your Cleanse
Congratulations! You’ve officially started your cleanse, and you’re ready to start reaping the benefits of juicing. Here are some things to keep in mind to help your system be in its best possible shape to keep everything flowing:
- Keep drinking at least eight glasses of water per day!
- Make sure you get ample rest.
- Having trouble eliminating? We recommend booking colonics or enemas to help flush out any toxic waste. If that sounds like a little much for you, try an herbal laxative – like Traditional Medicinals Smooth Move® tea or capsules.
- We suggest easing up on your usual work-out routine, but recommend taking one or two light walks per day to accelerate your lymphatic and circulatory systems.
- Try an infrared sauna, which will not only help you sweat, but it will relax you, too!
- Consider a massage or reflexology treatment.
- Try a skin brush before you shower to open your pores and shed dead skin cells.
- Treat yourself to warm baths and/or showers.
- Take a daily probiotic to help your intestines repopulate the good flora you need, and to help you get balanced.
Feeling uncomfortable? Don’t sweat it! Remember, while your digestive system is getting a lighter load, your body is adjusting to the clean nutrients you’re putting in it, and it’s simultaneously ridding itself of all the junk you just don’t need. A lot is going on, and sometimes that can feel a little overwhelming!
But if you’re feeling exceptionally wiped out and need a little something to help pick you up, try some non-caffeinated herbal tea, or add a pinch of Celtic sea salt to your drinks. Still hungry? Try drinking some veggie broth. And if you really need to get some food in you, have a few slices of apples or cucumbers.
You made it! Well done! Now let’s get you back on track with a plan that will help you continue to feel the benefits of your cleanse and maximize its effectiveness.
The more gently you re-introduce foods into your diet, the better off you’ll be. Break your cleanse with small meals that incorporate solids and liquids.
