Why are Juice Culture blends better for you than regular juices?
Our juices are cold pressed which means the produce is not ground and heated by centrifugal juicers (juicers used in juice bars) the produce is gently hydraulically cold pressed whilst chilled to avoid damaging the delicate nutrients, antioxidants and enzymes. Some blends have herbs & spices to balance texture, nutrition & taste for an optimum experience. We only use Australian grown produce. We certainly don’t use any artificial colours, flavours, preservatives. Our juice cleanse Melbourne program is our passion.
Why do you combine the fruit and vegetables the way you do?

From breakfast and right throughout the day, most cope extremely well, some won't experience any hunger. It's generally around tea time that you may feel hungry, hang in there it's gone in the morning.
Why are ingredients separating at top and bottom of the bottle?
Separation is a sign of being completely natural. Most fibre is removed when cold pressing, however, a measure of fibre remains, some float, some sink. We do not use any emulsifiers, chemicals or pasturization to keep the ingredients bonded. Give the bottle a good shake and you'll have a completely natural blend.
Can I eat other foods whilst detoxing?
For best results, stick to the blends supplied. If you are really struggling, we do provide a list of foods to help you stay on track. If you are using the program for nutritional purposes then try splitting a 1-day detox pack over 2 days - consume 4 blends during the day and add a healthy dinner. We recommend including extra fluids to keep your digestive system regular, that way toxins are less likely to be re-absorbed into your body. Water is recommended along with herbal teas.
Can I drink coffee, tea or alcohol with this detox program?
Not if you want the very best results. Including coffee and alcohol will slow down the cleansing process and counteract the anti-inflammatory properties of the blends. The aim of this program is to rest and soothe your digestive system.
With all that fresh produce, will I be visiting the loo more frequently?
Not necessarily, that's why we recommend extra fluids. You need to keep your digestive system moving to clear the toxins before they are reabsorbed into your system. You will likely have 1 or 2 normal bowel movements each day. If not, include more water during the program.
