Juice Cleanse Guide
As you are preparing for your juice cleanse or what we like to call a juice “feast”, we recommend pre-cleansing to help you get the most out of your experience! Taking time to get centered, focused and by following these suggestions, you will find that your detoxification symptoms may not be as severe and may set you up for a more effective cleanse overall. Be sure to always consult with your primary health provider if you are dealing with chronic disease, are on medications or generally question the safety of doing one.
24-48 hours before you launch your juice feast, eliminate:
- Processed, “fake” sugar
- Dairy - milk, cheese, yogurt (you can find an alternative dairy like almond milk, cashew milk, etc…)
- Coffee (find an alternative like green tea, yerba mate’, etc…)
You can eliminate these all at once, or you can do a few at a time. Feel free to slowly reintroduce them once you’ve finished your cleanse.
24-48 hours before you launch your juice feast, increase:
- Pure, filtered water intake
- Plant-based foods
- Long, deep breaths
A juice cleanse program can be a great way to hit the reset button on your health and nourish your body with readily available nutrients from fresh fruits and veggies! Some potential health benefits of a 24-hour cleanse include an immunity boost, being anti-inflammatory and more mild detox symptoms than a multi-day cleanse. A one day cleanse is recommended 2-4 times per month for best results to dive a bit deeper or once per month as part of your preventative health routine. You can also do 3,5,7 and 10 day juice cleanse durations if you’re wanting to experience more in-depth detoxification and potential healing benefits.

Recommended daily juice consumption schedule:
- Each day you are given 6 juices to drink, based on a 12 hour waking period - we suggest drinking a juice every 2 hours or so.
- You can choose what order to drink them in, however, if you engage in physical activity or you can tell your blood sugar is low, we suggest reaching for the higher natural sugar content juices in the cleanse - The Beet Goes On, Sunshine in a Cup, Carrot Apple Tango.
- We recommend keeping a daily journal or log where you can keep track of what time you drank your juices, in what order and how you are feeling so you can look back and reflect and strategize for the next day.
A few tips to help you be successful:
- Allow yourself the day to rest and relax, don’t plan your cleanse on a day where you have a full to-do list.
- Have fresh, raw organic fruits and vegetables ready to go to help you in the days before and after your cleanse.
- Get outside and soak up the sunshine!
- Drink fresh, herbal teas like our Elderberry Herbal Tea to boost immunity, promote natural energy and provide some stress relief.
