Ready to learn more? Read below. 

What is a juice cleanse?

A juice cleanse is a great way to detoxify your body, relax an uptight digestive system, and pump your body full of powerful nutrients. Pulp & Press has juice cleanses that range from  2-7 days that are perfectly curated to bring your body all of the nutrients it needs to reset and feel its best. Drinking cold pressed juice is one of the healthiest things you can do for your body, but the idea of only consuming juice for a length of time can seem a little daunting so we thought we would share some misconceptions about cleansing! 

Misconceptions about Cleansing

1. “Won’t I be hungry?” 

The idea of not eating any solid food for days feels scary, but the main benefits of completing a juice cleanse is to provide your digestive organs with a much-needed break, enabling your body to benefit from the surge of vitamins and nutrients. You may be worried that you’ll be hungry with no solid food, but with 7 juices per day, scheduled every 2 hours, cleansers have reported feeling satisfied throughout the day, especially with water consumed between each juice!

2.“It will be too difficult”.

Like all new things, your mind will be excited, nervous and a wee bit apprehensive to try it. But to ensure your juice cleansing experience is one that isn't just highly nutritious, but delicious as well, our combination of smoothies, probiotics, juices and wellness shots are curated to keep you feeling full throughout the length of your cleanse. Plus every cleanse comes with a guide on how to get the most of your cleanse. 

3. “What about the sugar intake?”

Our bodies thrive with natural fruit-based sugars because we’re able to metabolize them much easier than processed or refined sugars. For healthy individuals with no underlying medical concerns, the naturally occurring sugars in cold-pressed juices should be no cause for alarm! Cold-pressed juice is not the same as the juice we’re used to seeing at the breakfast table. Cold-pressed juice has no added sugar, any sweetness is 100% natural. 

Juice cleanses and overall gut health

How’s your gut functioning? Many things you might experience on the daily can be a result of poor gut health. Here are some symptoms to watch out for:

  • Chronic diarrhea, constipation, gas, or bloating
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Weakened immune system
  • Headaches, brian fog, memory loss
  • Excessive fatigue

A juice cleanse can serve as a quick intervention and set you on the right track to better gut health. The Complete Cleanse has vegan probiotics and fiber that will revive your digestive system, and is easily achieved by beginners.

Looking for an extra push?

Drinking probiotic juices is a great way to help maintain a healthy balance in your body. When you’re sick, bad bacteria enters your body and knocks your health off-balance. Probiotics and other good bacteria work to fight off the bad bacteria and restore harmony within your body. Pulp & Press has two delicious cold pressed drinks made from a white tea base boasting 3 billion live vegan probiotic cultures per serving, these juices help keep your digestive tract feeling happy and healthy.
