This may come as a surprise, but our body does not need as much protein as many of us are led to believe, nor is it essential to eat meat, dairy, or soy in order to get enough protein in your diet. Truth is, if we’re eating enough whole food calories (e.g., raw vegetables, nuts, seeds, and algae) we’re almost certainly getting enough protein to sustain yourself.
Additionally, cooking decreases the amount of absorbable protein in food by 50% or more, so fresh raw vegetable juices are among the most absorbable, bioavailable forms of protein. Organic raw spirulina is one of the most concentrated forms of protein on the planet, and has been a main traditional protein source in a variety of cultures for many years.
Our cold-pressed Juice Cleanse juices retain maximum nutritional value. They taste great because you don’t have to cut back on deliciousness to increase their detoxifying benefits.
And there’s a Juice Cleanse for every level of cleanser because we think everyone should be able to feel as good as we do.
We think you’re going to fall in love with juice like we did.
Put very simply, it's like hitting your body's reset button.
But it's not quite that simple. The Juice Cleanse is a great way to give your body a break from unhealthy choices (let's be honest, we all make them), dehydration and general excess.
And even if you're a pillar of exercise, purity and clean living, we're all exposed to unavoidable environmental pollutants on a daily basis. It's estimated that, on average, we can all have at least 5 - 10lbs of accumulated toxic waste from sources like prescription drugs, cleaning products, auto pollution, dry cleaning chemicals as well as preservative and additives in the foods we eat.
The good news is your body is built to eliminate toxins and waste. And it works hard at it on your behalf every single day. So give it a little help with a break. A juice cleanse.
3 days before cleansing
PREP WITH A LOW INFLAMMATORY DIET

- BE INTENTIONAL
- Set an intention for your juice cleanse—a commitment to changing something in your life. Why are you cleansing? What do you want to create? Heal? What will make your cleanse successful? Think about these questions, or even write them down. Setting an intention is an important part of cleansing both mind and body.

You can benefit even more from your cleanse with introspective activities like writing, meditation, nature walks, and soft music. Make sure you have the free time to take care of yourself and your body.
