How Does a Juice Cleanse Work?

Juice cleansing removes harmful toxins and chemicals that have been absorbed in the environment we live in. It gives the body a rest and an opportunity to recover from the stress of everyday life. Read on to discover the finer details of juice cleansing and why you can be confident Juice Culture are juice cleanse Melbourne leaders.


Every day we are exposed to chemicals in the atmosphere, foods we eat contain preservatives, and the products we use on our body are tainted with toxins. Admittedly, those who try to avoid all contact and exposure to these harmful elements will inevitably still absorb these unwanted elements.

This is why juice cleansing is a feature in many people’s lives. While there are different forms of cleansing available, juice cleansing is the most common due to the repeated desirable outcomes of the cleansing process.

How Do I Prepare For a Juice Cleanse?

Cleansing challenges the body because it is going through an unfamiliar process. It really does pay to spend some time and effort preparing your body before cleansing so that you will get the best results from the cleanse.

We recommend that you begin preparing for your cleanse a few days before it starts. Replace the sugar, alcohol, and coffee in your diet with whole foods such as fruits, vegetables, fish, and nuts. Increasing your water intake will give your body a head-start into the cleansing process. When the juices arrive on your doorstep, you will be ready for the adventure!

What is the Purpose of a Juice Cleanse?

People undertake a juice cleanse for a variety of reasons. The team at Juice Culture has observed over the past decade that some common reasons for cleansing are weight loss, detoxifying the liver, and better sleep.

  • Weight Loss. Juice cleansing aids in weight loss due to a reduced calorie intake. Residual foods are also cleared out of the stomach and digestive tract.
  • Improved Energy. Rich micro-nutrients from fresh fruits and vegetables supply the body with the energy required to complete the cleanse.
  • Digestion. The intake of liquid flushes out the digestive system giving it a rest and an opportunity to recover.
  • Glowing Skin. The removal of toxins combined with vital nutrients the body is getting through the cleanse program is often noticed on the body’s largest organ.
  • Improved Mood. Juice detoxing results in improved sleep in most cases. Being better rested and maintaining a high level of nutrition through the cleanse naturally results in improved moods.
  • Fewer Headaches. The cleansing program is packed with fruit and vegetables that naturally contain a high percentage of water. Hydration reduces headaches. Although no additional water is ever added to our juices, there is a natural abundance of H2O. Additionally, we strongly encourage water to be consumed along with the juice cleanse. It may seem unnecessary, but our experience is that it is vital for a successful cleanse program.

How does a Juice Cleanse Program work?

A juice cleanse program works by replacing the food you would usually eat with fruit and vegetable cold-pressed juices.

Along with each program comes an instructional guide. Contained in the cleanse guide is the set times of the day to drink a particular blend. Basically, the first juice is consumed when rising or at 8 am. Every 2 hours, drink a new juice. This process continues throughout the day until all eight blends are finished. The next day follows the same routine depending on how many days the cleanse has been booked. As you can see, it is a simple process.

It is imperative to follow the instructions carefully. The program has been written with over a decade of experience and forethought. If the cleanse contains celery juice, this will likely be scheduled to start the day as it lightly awakens your digestive system. If your cleanse program has a bone broth (such as our Balance program), it is recommended to have it at lunchtime and dinner-time.

What Do I Need to do a Juice Cleanse?

You will need cold-pressed juice. Some companies offer high-pressure pasteurized (HPP) juice. We would never recommend purchasing HPP juice for a cleanse as it is not fresh. Many of the nutrients have been removed. There are also some ‘packet’ cleanses on the market. We will not begin to discuss these for obvious reasons.

Fresh, raw, and unpasteurized cold-pressed juices are the key. Many find that it is more cost-effective and far more convenient to purchase a juice cleanse program rather than doing it all themselves. The added benefit of purchasing is that it will be a stress-free week and that you have Australia’s Gold Medal Award Winning cold-pressed juices in your fridge.

Should I Eat Food During a Juice Cleanse?

One of the main features of a juice cleanse is that it gives your digestive system a break, so it is best to avoid foods. The juices will provide ample nutrients and calories while taking a break from solid food. There may be some occasions during the cleanse where you feel a little hungry. Be assured this is normal. Some people feel hungry on the first day and then feel no hunger for the remainder of the program. Some people find day 3 to be a little more challenging. It varies from person to person, but you can be confident that there are enough calories to take you through.

If you want something to nibble on, prepare a few raw carrot sticks or celery sticks. We also recommend having some raw almonds on hand to satisfy any food cravings. In general, many people can complete the cleanse program without whole foods.

If you are concerned about your health at any time during the cleanse, consult your doctor as you and your doctor know what is best for your body.

How Long Should I Cleanse For?

Generally speaking, a juice cleanse program is carried out from 1 to 7 days. Of course, you will need to decide how long to undertake the detox based on your fitness goals. We recommend first-time clients do a shorter cleanse up to 3 days. Those with a little more experience can do a five or seven-day cleanse.

How Often Should I Cleanse?

As established, we are taking in toxins and harmful preservatives every day by choice or not. Therefore, doing a juice cleanse is not a once-in-a-lifetime activity. We recommend that clients undertake a cleanse 3 to 4 times per year. To keep it simple to remember, we encourage one cleanse per season. By keeping a regular maintenance program on your body, you can clear out the nasty toxins before they build up again.

The team at Juice Culture would be pleased to provide you with our fresh cold-pressed juices to assist you in reaching your health goals. Check out our range of juice cleanse Melbourne programs and our award-winning cold-pressed juices.
