FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DOES ORGANIC MATTER?
The most important reason that organic matters is pesticides. Cold-pressing extracts as many of the fresh nutrients and minerals from produce as possible, producing a concentrated, healthful result. If that produce is sprayed with toxic pesticides commonly used in conventional or non-organic farming practices, those chemicals become concentrated as well. This means you're unknowingly flooding your body with unhealthy chemicals while you're also trying to get healthy nutrients. Give your body and health the best juice possible by picking an organic juice from Juice Core.
WHAT IS "COLD-PRESSED"?
A cold press machine uses thousands of pounds of pressure when extracting juice. This process does not create heat like a centrifugal juicer does, which can break down enzymes and fragile nutrients and create oxidation.
We also never pasteurize or HPP (high-pressure process) our juices. These 2 forms of pasteurization change the quality of the juice but extend the shelf life to several weeks or months.
Cold pressing and keeping our juices raw means they have a shelf life of up to 5 days, in which their nutrient content and taste both remain as fresh as possible.
SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY CLEANSE AHEAD OF TIME?
This is a personal choice, some people do prep, some people don't. We've found that people get better results and fewer detox symptoms if they do a little groundwork 3-5 days prior to your cleanse. We have some helpful tips and tricks here on our How to Cleanse page if you'd like to know more!
CAN I EXERCISE?
Listen to your body! It will be working very hard to get rid of layers and layers of built-up toxins, so don't feel guilty laying down to rest as needed. If you feel you have the energy, some light yoga, going for a nice walk, or taking time to stretch are all great and gentle ways to get your body moving.
CAN I DRINK CAFFEINE WHILE CLEANSING?
This is a yes and no answer - if you are already drinking coffee or caffeinated tea daily and have not followed our recommended pre-cleanse steps found here, then it's ok to keep drinking your caffeinated beverage with no added creamers or sweeteners. Your body will be working extremely hard to detox toxins, it can be overwhelming to add caffeine withdrawal on top. However, if you are able to resist caffeine for the duration of your cleanse, this is highly recommended.
WHY DO I HAVE A HEADACHE?
Your body is detoxifying. You may be experiencing withdrawals from sugar or caffeine. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate — drink some water or herbal tea to help relieve some of the symptoms.
