This answer depends on what your body needs and your personal health goals. Every body has it’s own history of diet, chemical exposure, and stress levels, so consider yours when picking which length of an Organic Cleanses to complete.
1 Day– This is a great introduction to the idea of cleansing as well as a great way to maintain the benefits of longer Organic Cleanses. Do this once a month, before a big date, or after a little too much indulging and you will feel the difference.
3 Days- Eliminates toxins and starts to really detox body, bolsters your immune system, boosts energy, clears your skin and helps you get glowing, stimulates weight loss, and addresses many basic gastro-intestinal imbalances.
Of course! How do you feel after a great day of rest and relaxation? Your body will feel the same way! The benefits of a 1-day cleanse, once a week are unbelievable! This Organic Cleanses method has been an Eastern practice for centuries, used as a quick strategy to strengthen the immune system, sharpen mental clarity, and allow the body to ‘catch up’. Like yourself, your body needs a rest. After only one day of stopping solid food intake, enzymes stop visiting your stomach and instead travel into the bloodstream and intestines, where they get busy attacking all sorts of old waste matter, damaged cells, and pollutants.
A good rule of thumb is whenever you experience any of the following: fatigue/general lack of energy, sleeplessness, anxiety/depression, digestive problems, at the first sign of a cold and of course, before and after holidays or any special events that lead to overindulging. We recommend doing a cleanse once a month for at least 3 days. This allows your body the proper rest and recovery time it needs to maintain optimum health. Make it a healthy habit – the immune system loves a consistent schedule.
We deliver 2 days a week locally from 12pm-7pm. You can choose either Wednesday or Sunday evening for delivery. The driver will leave your juices on ice in an insulated cooler bag if you are not home and will send you a text message confirming delivery.

Not to worry! Your juices are fine and ready to drink. As long as the delivery was not in the hot sun for over 5 hours, it is still fresh.
COLD PRESS PROCESS FOR ORGANIC CLEANSES AND JUICES
Cold Press sets itself apart in many ways: The method is a two-part process, first the food goes through a grinding and cutting method, and then it’s put into the press, which is a much more intensive method. Almost all of the pulp is pressed out, which means less oxygen, which in turn gives longer-lasting, tastier, more nutritionally dense juice. Pulp contains air, and when that pulp is left in the juice it oxidizes very quickly. Cold press juicers extract juice from produce using a gentle crushing and squeezing action. This ensures that the vital enzymes, nutrients and minerals stay intact. This extraction method is still regarded as the best in the world. In fact, studies show that the juice extracted from a cold press juicer is “Living Juice” and retains double the nutrients of traditional juicers. It is estimated that Cold Press Juicing extracts 3-5 times more vitamins and minerals than juice from other machines.
THE HEALTH BEHIND ORGANIC CLEANSES AND JUICES
Yes. We buy 100% Organic fruits and vegetables, without exception. We buy from local sources wherever possible.
Discoloration is completely normal. Sometimes the high level of polyphenols (a chemical that occurs in fruits and veggies that protects against common health problems and the effects of aging) and antioxidants may turn it pink or brown. This is a naturally occurring process and the juice is safe to drink.
This is a normal part of the cold pressed process. Shake well or stir before drinking.
Our juices are custom made for you each day, so at times variations may occur, such as:
Settling or Separation: My Organic Juice has no additives, and only additives can prevent the natural settling process. Shake or stir your juice before drinking and it will all blend together.
White Specs: Juices that contain ginger may have white specks in the bottom of the juice bottle. These specks are ginger sediment, which naturally settle to the bottom of the bottle.
Color Variation: Because My Organic Juice uses the freshest ingredients available to us at all times of the year, the juice can vary in color each time you purchase it. The Pineapple Apple juice may vary in color, from gold to yellow-green to pink to brown. Depending on the harvest and growing season, apples have varying amounts of polyphenols, antioxidants, and enzymes which, in turn, can cause differences in the coloration of the juice.
Clumps in the Almond Nut Milk: This is completely normal, and the juice is still fresh. Open the bottle to release some of the pressure, and then shake it well! If you want a perfectly smooth texture, the Almond Milk can be strained.
Each cleanse contains between 900 – 1100 calories per day. Keep in mind that counting calories with raw foods and juice is not equivalent to the calories you count on a traditional diet of cooked and/or processed foods. Nothing is wasted here, as the body knows how to assimilate all the calories in raw live foods. Calorie based thinking would not apply to juicing as 500 calories of live juice is NOT the same 500 calories of cookies! Organic Cleanses are more about nutrition and flooding your body with live enzymes.
Ideal for any active adult (over the age of 18), or any adult looking to get active, My Organic Juice cleanses are designed with you in mind. If you are looking to jump-start your health, detoxify your body, and increase your energy, a Juice cleanse may be right for you! We want to be part of your healthy lifestyle and we are glad you chose My Organic Juice for your cleanse. Please be sure to review the next question, “Who Should Not Cleanse?” and consult your health care provider before embarking on your cleanse.
My Organic Juice does not recommend participation in a juice cleanse by anyone under the age of 18. During pregnancy and nursing, a Juice cleanse is not appropriate due to the increased nutritional and caloric needs of your body and those of your growing baby. If you suffer from any of the following, we strongly recommend that you consult with a physician before committing to any cleansing program: chronic degenerative disease, hypothyroidism, anemia, diabetes, low blood sugar, heart failure, kidney failure, liver failure, epilepsy, eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa or bulimia, low blood pressure, compromised immunity. And remember, just because Organic Cleanses may not be in the cards right now does not mean that you can’t benefit from the full selection of wholesome, raw My Organic Juice products.
There are some conditions that are not compatible with Organic Cleanses, in that case we invite you to explore our selection of Juices for everyday consumption. Just because a cleanse is not recommended doesn’t mean you cannot benefit from the wholesome goodness of My Organic Juice’s raw juice selection.

One of the main benefits of doing Organic Cleanses is to give the body and the digestive tract a rest from breaking down solid food. This saved energy can then be transferred to cleansing process. Normally, fiber is great for moving things through your system, but when the body must separate out juice from fiber, there is an energy expenditure that is significant. Also, you have to realize that the insoluble fibers help to promote digestion, and when you are juicing, there is really nothing to digest after a few days since juices are absorbed and not digested. For Cleansing purposes you do not need a fiber supplement.
With our cleanse you will receive protein from our Green Juice as well as our Nut Milk. While the Nut Milk is a more obvious source of protein, their is a huge protein punch that comes from living plant foods. There are MANY sources of protein other than that which comes from animals. Vegetables DO contain protein. For example spinach has about 1g of protein per cup and broccoli has about 2g per cup. Typically as a society we consume too many proteins and we are conditioned to believe that we will not survive with less. You will. But if you are concerned about proteins you can add a powdered spirulina/wheatgrass type supplement to your juice.
You are consuming about 20 lbs of freshly pressed fruits and vegetables every day, which means that that is now essentially your “multi-vitamin.” You are already overloading your body with so many nutrients and phytonutrients that it wouldn’t make sense to add even more via a supplement. Supplements are great if you are not getting those nutrients to begin with, but when you are juicing you get a big variety of nutrients throughout the day making it unnecessary to take vitamin supplements.
A Cleanse done properly actually improves metabolic function. Juice cleansing cleans out your system; it removes the dead cells, waste, toxins, and mucus and leads to a more efficient metabolism. Cleansing increases metabolic performance and energy output. In other words, you will eat less and feel more energetic. After a Cleanse, the body becomes more efficient. Your digestion improves because your colon is cleaner, which improves nutrient absorption. The more efficient your body becomes the more energy you will have! A Juice Cleanse slows your metabolism, but it’s not permanent, once you re-introduce solid food correctly into your diet, your metabolism will increase and return to normal. One great benefit of cleansing is that it decreases your appetite and you are much more conscious of what and how much you are eating. Physically, it can be very easy to maintain your weight after your Cleanse.
You may lose some weight during Organic Cleanses. The amount will vary per person, but the average is about one pound per day on a five day fast. Much of this is simply retained water and built up food matter in the colon. To maintain the weight loss it is important to stick to a routine of healthy eating, exercise, and periodic cleansing.
Most people are delighted by the weight they lose during a Juice Cleanse, and would be quite happy never to see the lost pounds come back. The answer to this question is simple. It’s up to you. If you reintroduce a clean, lean, youthful body back to the lazy, junk-food lifestyle you once lived, then yes, the weight will happily come back. Good news is you have lost more than just inches of fat. A Cleanse changes things on the inside where real change must begin. You have exercised authority over food, regained self-confidence and accomplished something never thought possible.
Although the color of most foods are chemically altered by enzymes as they move through your digestive system, the pigment of beets remains largely intact. As a result, it is not uncommon to have a red tinge to your stool for one or two days after eating red beets or drinking beet juice. Regardless of the cause, if you have not ingested beets or beet juice and you do see blood in your stool, contact your doctor. Some medications, including laxatives, can lend a pinkish hue to your urine, which could potentially affect the color of your stool as well. Also, other red foods, like blackberries, rhubarb and even tomatoes can color your stool, so be sure to recall everything you’ve eaten in the last two days before you run to the emergency room.
Fruit and vegetable juices are the cleansers, energizers, builders, and regenerators of the human system. Specifically, fruits are our cleansers and energizers and vegetable juices are our builders and regenerators.
Smoking is never recommended! We at My Organic Juice Cleanse believe that miracles are possible! If you do a Cleanse for an extended period of time, then you are bound to lose some unhealthy habits. If you were to complete a 21 day Cleanse, you will commonly find that you no longer want to partake of unhealthy foods or chemicals or ‘bad’ habits. Any Cleanse will lead you down the path of reevaluation of destructive habits on your body, but studies have shown that it takes 21 days to break a habit.
Children should not do any type of juice cleanse or fast while they are still growing. However, My Organic Juice is the perfect addition to any child’s diet. Cold pressed juice is always a better alternative to soda.
Contacting your healthcare provider before beginning a My Organic Juice Cleanse is always suggested, and in the event you are taking any medication or supplement it is imperative.
My Organic Juice Cleanse can be perfect partner for your antibiotics….While antibiotics fight off harmful bacteria they also deplete the body’s supply of healthy bacteria.
