Juice Cleanse FAQ
Why should I do a juice cleanse?
Whether we like it or not, every day our bodies are exposed to toxins. They are in the water we drink, the air that we breathe and the foods that we eat. We like to think of our Karma Juice cleanse program as a way to take a break from your hectic normal lifestyle, flush your organs of their accumulated toxins, and reset your body clock. The choice should be simple.
Is a cleanse right for me?
It’s always best to check with your physician first, but we feel that everybody can benefit from an organic juice cleanse on a regular basis. We are busy and struggle to find the time to eat well. Life is about balance, and we understand that at times we all need to indulge. The Karma Juice cleanse programs are designed for adults to enjoy, even those of you who are dairy sensitive and have vegetarian or gluten-free diets. *Keep in mind that our cleanse programs are NOT designed for all those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or suffer from certain medical conditions. Consult your physician before starting a cleanse program if you have a medical condition or take medications.
Can women who are pregnant or breastfeeding cleanse?
Our cleanse programs are designed for all kinds of people; however, there are certain individuals who should not partake in a juice cleanse. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should not restrict your diet to liquids, as you need extra calories and nutrients in your diet. The great thing about Karma cleanses, is they come with protein filled smoothies that are equivalent to meals in many cases. Consult your health care professional to find out if our drinks are right for you.
How many calories are in a typical cleanse?
Most of our juices contain about 100 calories, and our protein smoothies about 300 calories. Being that you will typically consume 3 juices and 3 smoothies a day you can count on getting about 1200-1500 calories a day from the cleanses.
Will I lose weight on a cleanse?
Most of the weight that you will lose on a cleanse will be toxic weight. Of course weight loss varies from individual to individual. Typically when one reduces caloric intake, removes fatty, carb loaded foods, and adds well balanced plant nutrients, weight loss will ensue.
Are Karma Juices fresh upon delivery?
Your juices will be delivered straight to your doorstep in a recyclable cooler or insulated bag with ice. Just take the drinks out of the cooler as soon as you receive them and place them in your refrigerator. We produce every juice to order, ensuring freshness and quality. In addition we put an enjoy by date on every bottle.
What’s the difference between pressurized and unpasteurized juice?
The latest technology allows juice manufacturers to cold pressurize their juices, thus extending shelf life by up to 90 days. At Karma Juice, we feel that the efficacy of juice is affected by this pressurization process and the enzymes in the fruits and vegetables are destroyed. We choose to create unpasteurized, raw juices and shakes that should be consumed within 3-7 days. Our blends provide you with the most balanced, best tasting, and most nutrient dense drinks on the planet.
Can I consume additional beverages with my cleanse?
Feel free to order an extra juice or smoothie for each day of your cleanse, but the packages were designed to give you plenty of nutrients on a daily basis. Stay away from carbonated drinks, and any drinks with added sugars or artificial sweeteners while on your cleanse. You are more than welcome to add extra doses of water with lemon and herbal teas. As a rule of thumb you should be drinking at least your body weight in ounces of water on a daily basis. And if you would like to order extra juices from our site to keep on hand for emergencies, feel free to go ahead and do so. Please refer to the page “During My Cleanse” for more helpful tips and advice.
We use organic, locally sourced fruits and vegetables in every drink that we craft. There are many big name juice companies today that are creating non-organic juices and smoothies that are loaded with sugar and in some cases worse for you than good. When produce is not organic it’s treated with pesticides during the farming process, which can lead to obvious health concerns for someone consuming large quantities of these non-organic fruits and vegetables. At Karma Juice we believe the truth is in your Karma, and we gladly stand behind each nutritional label on every bottle with a pledge to make your juice with the freshest, locally sourced organic produce available. #TheTruthIsInYourKarma
Can I workout while on a cleanse?
Yes of course, just try to take it easy at first. The way our cleanses are designed, you will be drinking 3 protein smoothies a day, so you should have the energy and muscle support to exercise. By the second day of the cleanse you should have more energy. It’s always a great idea to practice yoga and controlled breathing to help you maximize your cleanse. Please refer to our guide “During a Cleanse”.
How do I break the cleanse?
Please refer to our document entitled “After the Cleanse”. We recommend that after you cleanse you follow up with a few days of juice and smoothies till dinner and a sensible meal at night. We have 3-5-7 Karma Till Dinner Packages available for ordering now.
Where does Karma Juice make their products?
Karma Juice and Shakes are produced in an immaculate, state of the art kitchen located in Scottsdale, AZ. We incorporate the latest technology in cold pressing while using locally farmed fresh organic ingredients.
I want to get regular juice deliveries to my home/office, is this possible?
Whether it’s a cleanse package, a Juice Till Dinner Program, or a 6-pack, we are here to accommodate you. Our motto from day one has been we deliver “fresh from the press to your doorstep.” We love to see our juice community happy and healthy.
Which cleanse should I do?
We always recommend starting with our 3-Day Cleanse. Cleansing for 5 or 7 days is a deeper experience than cleansing for 3. If you’ve cleansed before, then you know if you are able to cleanse for 5-7 days. Just make sure you are able to devote some time to your cleanse, and avoid stress during that time period.
How often should I cleanse?
This comes down to personal preference. The more you cleanse the more you learn how to listen to your body and it’s basic needs. Making juice and protein smoothies a part of your regular life diminishes the need to cleanse often, because in reality you are cleansing on a daily basis. Consuming the nutrients in our organic fresh-pressed juices and protein smoothies on a regular basis will keep your body, mind and soul in a happy place. #DrinkYourKarma
