When do I defrost my juices?
Your juices will be sent to you frozen to maintain freshness. Remember our juices are unpasteurized, which means the enzymes and good bacteria are still alive. We freeze the juices right after they are pressed to keep the nutrients from deteriorating.
Defrost 2-3 bottles (one day’s worth) at a time the day before at room temperature. Generally it takes about 4-6 hours for juices to defrost. When they’re mostly thawed but still very cold, place the juices in the fridge so you can start in the morning. Do not defrost overnight! Once thawed, the juices only last about 3-4 days.
*Note: keep frozen if you’re NOT going to drink them right away! Juices can stay frozen up to 6 months.
When should I drink my juices?
The order you drink your juices, and when you drink them is completely up to you. The goal is to be able to drink enough that you can digest easily throughout the day. Some like to start with your green juice as your breakfast and end the day with a Heart Beet or Even Keeled.
Drink each portion in 2-3 hour intervals or when you start feeling hungry—the timing is not set in stone. You can have as much water as you like throughout the day.
Can I use the juice as a detox?
The body detoxifies itself naturally, primarily through the action of the liver, kidneys and gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These organs help remove toxins or harmful substances that should not be stored in the body.
Since the body is always in a natural state of cleansing itself, a person does not need to do a juice cleanse or follow a liquid diet to “detox”. However, drinking cold pressed juice does serve as a good source of calories without the extra sugars and fats, as well as a supplemental source of vitamins and minerals.
