I am sure that we have all heard about juice cleanses by now. There are literally thousands of companies pushing juice cleanses priced from $45-$300 (per a three day cleanse). Some of the "better known" juice companies are Blueprint, Pressed and LoveGrace. It is difficult to pick one that is "best" but there are definitely some things to look for before dishing out the cash to do a cleanse.
IS THE JUICE COLD-PRESSED?
You want a cold pressed juice. This method of juicing doesn’t oxidize or degrade the ingredients and keeps nutrients and enzymes more intact.
IS IT ORGANIC?
1. If you are paying all of this money, you want the best ingredients. 2. For obvious reasons, fruits and veggies should be free of pesticides.
IS IT RAW & UNPASTEURIZED?
Raw pressed veggies that haven’t been heated maximizes the nutrients.
DOES IT CONTAIN HPP?
High Pressure Pascalization (HPP) is a method for preserving food without using heat. Bigger cold-pressed juice companies will use this to extend the shelf life of juices, allowing them to distribute to grocery stores and ship them. It’s not always possible, but it is better if you can settle on one without HPP.
