What is a La Juiceria juice cleanse ?

This juice cleanse is a natural and effective way to detoxify your body, in order to restore your health and wellbeing. By replacing your normal food and drink with live, nutrient-rich juices, you flush the toxins from your body, and nourish the cells with vital enzymes.
We hope to reboot your body to its peak performance by replacing daily meals with juices made from raw vegetables and fruits. Our nutrient-rich juices will help flush out excess toxins and nourish your cells with vital enzymes. As a result, your body will feel lighter and cleaner. You will feel renewed! Instead of your daily meals, you will be having 6 different cold-pressed juices which is 350ML each. The juices are delicious and has its own list of benefits for your body. You will be taking the juices every 2-3 hours, starting from the time you wake up.
Why does the juice have settling or separation after it stays in the fridge ?
Our juices are handcrafted, cold-pressed and has no additives. Only additives can prevent the natural settling process. Before drinking, be sure to give your juice a good shake!
Does it really matter what order I drink the juices ?
Yes it does! The order in which you consume your juices directly affects how you absorb, assimilate, and digest nutrients. For example, when your stomach is empty first thing in the morning, it is able to assimilate whatever you put in it much more than if you consumed something prior. That is why we always have Goodness Greens first. Your body will absorb ALL of the vitamins and nutrients without interruption. However, don’t worry if you DO have to switch it up a bit and maybe have half of your Almond Mylk first thing in the morning instead of last because you’re used to a protein fix the second you open your eyes, and you’ll absolutely lose it if you don’t have it. This is when we can give ourselves permission to improvise.
How should I store my juice ?
In your fridge. In case you plan to bring some of your drinks around with you, please put it inside a cooler bag with ice packs to keep it cold.
I have a work meeting that I can’t be drinking a juice there. If I eat a light salad, will it totally mess it up ?
This is not the end of the world, and you’ll be just fine. Try to stick to the foods we have recommended, such as salad, celery sticks, vegetable broth and fruits. Though, our best recommendation is to schedule your cleanse when your schedule is least complicated.
Is La Juiceria juice organic ?
We strive to use organic produce whenever we can. In our experience, some of our sources for organic can be affordable compared to normal produce. Also, we have two kinds of prices for the all-?natural and fully organic juices. We want to cater to everyone – those who are novice all the way to experts who want fully organic juices. Lastly, we try to maintain a low carbon footprint by sourcing locally when possible and support local farmers. You are guaranteed that all produce, whether organic or all-?natural, go through an intensive cleaning process which uses organic wash, scrubbed and ozonized.
Why is juice so expensive ?
Not all juices are created equal. The average La Juiceria juice takes more than 2 pounds of fruits and vegetables to make. Additionally, we try to use organic whenever we can and each juice is a handcrafted beverage. Lastly, the process of cold-pressing requires more involvement.
For the Juice Cleanse, it takes about 6-7 kilos of produce to make the 6 juices. Imagine all that produce packed into 6 bottles.
What’s the environmental impact ?
We maintain a low carbon footprint by sourcing locally as much as we can. The containers that we provide our customers are PET plastic bottles, which are recyclable.
Can my kids drink La Juiceria juices ?
Of course! We’ve designed the taste profiles so that kids love the juices, too. Keep in mind children should not be doing cleanse-only programs.
Fruits and vegetables have a lot of pesticide.Is it safe to drink a lot of cold-pressed juices ?
Dr. Norman Walker shared that it is the fibers of fruits and vegetables that collect these toxins. When the vegetables are cold-pressed, the cells of the fibers are split open and these elements are released. By squeezing the pulp through proper straining material, the enzymes, atoms and molecules in the juices are extracted from the fibers and the toxins with which they are saturated. All the nourishing elements we require are present in the enzymes, atoms and molecules. The fibers have virtually no nourishing value. In Dr. Walker’s experiments, he has found that toxic sprays are retained in the fibers of vegetables and are NOT present in the fiber-free juices.
What is your pricing like ?
For orders starting from 4 days and above, customers will be able to enjoy a different set of cleanse flavors. Kindly refer to our CLEANSES for more information.
Why is it important to drink unpasteurized, raw juices ?
When juices have been cooked, processed, canned or pasteurized, all of the enzymes are destroyed. The atoms are converted into inorganic or dead atoms. Unlike raw juices, which are “alive” and full of enzymes, it retains its vital organic quality.
I'm very allergic to nuts – do you have a replacement for the nut milk if I take the La Juiceria Cleanse ?
Don’t worry, we recognize that some people may have nuts allergies. Kindly inform us during the order placement online and you receive an additional Mint Lemonade instead. But please be aware that it is all made in the same factory.
Can I do the La Juiceria Cleanse if I have diabetes ?
There are many types of diabetes. In most cases, regardless of the type, the answer to this is no because of the amount of sugar found in some of the fruit juice, but you should always check with your doctor first.
How many calories are your cleanse ?
Each day cleanse set is about 750 – 1080 calories. The count varies from the sets we deliver since we have 2 kinds (for 4-days and above cleanses). Also take note that occasionally we provide raw nuts to complement your cleanse and that adds up to the calories as well. However, please bear in mind that counting calories with raw foods and juice is not equivalent to the calories you count on a traditional diet of cooked and/or processed foods. Nothing is wasted here, as the body knows how to assimilate all the calories in raw live foods, whereas a regular diet of 2,000 calories for example, might only have about 1200 useable calories and the rest is “wasted” or stored as fat. We do try to encourage all our customers to move away from calorie oriented thinking, as it’s really no comparison. 500 calories of live juice is NOT the same 500 calories as a plate of Nasi Lemak! We try to focus on the nutritional content as opposed to the calorie content; La Juiceria is more about nutrition and flooding your body with live enzymes.
How much weight will I lose ?
Please bear in mind that this is a nutritional cleanse designed to give your digestive system a rest and therefore allow your body to eliminate toxins. If you do lose weight, and that was something you were looking for while cleansing, then that’s just a happy side effect.
Will I gain all the weight back ?
Hopefully, if weight control is your goal, our La Juiceria cleanse will put you on a path towards healthier habits. Many people report back being able to focus more on what they are putting into their body after a La Juiceria Cleanse. Make this your goal in preparing for your cleanse, and ask yourself, “What am I going to do when this cleanse is over?” It’s an opportunity to “reset and reboot” yourself.
What should I do if my stool is bloody ?
Please check it out closely. Is it? Or did you just drink some of our beet juice? If it is, consult a doctor.
Can I put my child on La Juiceria Cleanse ?
Children should not do any type of juice cleanse or fast while they are still growing. That said, La Juiceria juices is an amazing addition to any diet. Cold pressed juice is always a better alternative to soda for sure !
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about Juicing
Can I drink La Juiceria if I am lactose intolerant ?
Of course! There are no dairy products in La Juiceria juices
Can I drink La Juiceria if I am on a Gluten-free diet ?
Yes, again! We are gluten-free. In fact there is nothing added to our juice but juice!
I’ve heard fiber is good for you and these juices don’t have much fiber.
Fiber is great for regulating and cleaning out your digestive tract. However, dietary fiber can be divided into 2 different types which is soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber is the fiber that will increase satiety, at the same time slows down stomach emptying. On the other hand, insoluble fiber is the fiber that has the laxative effect. The good news is that La Juiceria juices has soluble fibers. On top of that, during the cleanse period we do not advice to supplement your diet with fiber as a significant energy expenditure is expended by your body to separate juice from fiber. By drinking cold pressed juices, you gives your digestive tract a break.
Can I do this if I am on blood thinners ?
Generally the answer is “NO”. You should check with your doctor. You can provide your doctor the following information about La Juiceria Juice Cleanses (cleanse journal)
I am taking medication. Can I still cleanse ?
We would suggest that you refer to your doctors. For ease of explanation, kindly print this document for your doctor and bring on your next appointment.
Are there enough calories if I am just taking your juice cleanse set for the day ?
Not to worry, the juices are designed to help support your system throughout the day. However, if in case you feel that you need to really eat something, please stick to the foods we have recommended. Choose salad, celery sticks, fruits or vegetable broth. Listen to your body. All we ask is please refrain from caffeine and meat, if possible, to enjoy the full effects of your cleanse.
What is your changes and cancellation policy for La Juiceria Cleanses ?
We have a “no refund policy” for orders online. Should you need to make date changes on the dates, we require a 48 hours notification prior to your chosen delivery date. We allow a one-time rescheduling (with no charge), at least 2 days in advance. Any subsequent changes will be subject to an administrative charge of RM20.
How much juice can be taken safely ?
Just as much as you can drink comfortably without forcing yourself. According to Dr. Norman Walker, one pint daily is the least that will show any perceptible results.
Why not just eat the vegetables and fruits ? Why discard the fiber ?
We encourage people to eat vegetables and fruits if they can. Juices may help people to achieve recommended serving of fruits and vegetables. In addition, it is a great way for people who does not consume vegetables and fruits. There are 2 types of fibre, insoluble and soluble fibre. From juicing, you still get the solule fibre. Soluble fiber dissolves in water to form a gel-like material. It can help lower blood cholesterol and glucose levels. Inside your digestive system, soluble fiber attaches to cholesterol particles and takes them out of the body, helping to reduce overall cholesterol levels and the risk of heart disease.
Why cold-pressed ?
Cold pressed juices is the closest thing next to raw and pure fruits and vegetables in terms of nutrients and enzymes that is free from pulp. Compared to the traditional way of juicing, the juice is obtain through the deployment of fast rotating blades which will masticate the fruits/ vegetables. Through the fast rotation heat is produced, hence oxidizing the nutrients in the juice.
Who should do the cleanse ?
We are all leading busy lives in this modern world and struggle to find time for ourselves, and often our health suffers as a result. La Juiceria cleanse programs are designed for adults to enjoy, even those of you who are lactose-intolerant and keep a vegetarian or gluten-free diet.

What if I am pregnant or breastfeeding ?
Our cleanse programs are designed for all healthy people; however, there are certain individuals who should not partake. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should not restrict your diet to liquids, as you need extra calories and nutrients in your diet. Consult your health care professional if our drinks are right for you. You can look into supplementing your diet with our healthy juices. However, consult with your health care provider first.
Why does this juice look different from when I last purchased it ?
Our juices are handcrafted, so at times variations may occur, such as: Settling or Separation: La Juiceria’s juice has no additives, and only additives can prevent the natural settling process. Before drinking, be sure to give your juice a good shake! White Specs: Juices that contain ginger may have white specks in the bottom of the juice bottle. Not to worry! These white specks are ginger sediment, which naturally settle to the bottom of the bottle. Color Variation: The Pineapple Apple juice may vary in color, from gold to yellow-green to pink to brown. Depending on the harvest and growing season, apples have varying amounts of polyphenols, antioxidants, and enzymes which, in turn, can cause differences in the coloration of the juice. Because La Juiceria uses the freshest ingredients available to us at all times of the year, the juice can vary in color each time you purchase it. Clumps in the Almond Mylk: The protein from the Almond Mylk may clump from time to time, and perhaps you will see cinnamon specs as well. We assure you that this is completely normal, and the juice is still fresh and safe to consume. We suggest opening the bottle to release some of the pressure, and then shaking well! This also happens for the Chocolate Almond Mylk, and possibly you will organic cocoa clumps at the bottom.
Why is my Almond Mylk Sour ?
Our Almond Mylk should NOT be sour. It should taste sweet and pleasant! If it is sour, it means something happened along the way, possibly it wasn’t chilled enough in the fridge. It needs to stay chilled below 5 degrees. Please do not drink it! Kindly contact us and inform us about this incident.
If I have a medical condition (e.g recently suffered heart attack, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, etc, can I do the La Juiceria Cleanse ?
Raw juice fasting is beneficial in relieving some of the health issues. However, should you have a medical condition, please do not take the juice cleanse without consulting first with your doctor. Once again, consult with your health care provider before starting a cleanse program if you have a medical condition or take medications.
Are the juices definitely fresh upon delivery? How do I store them ?
Your juices will be delivered straight to you in a recyclable cooler bag (for first time customers). Just take them out of the cooler bag and put them straight into your fridge. We produce every juice to order each morning, ensuring freshness and quality.
Can I add extra beverages to my day of cleansing ?
We are totally for adding extra drinks if you feel you are in over your head with just 5 drinks and 1 almond drink per day, but make sure they are healthy! Stay away from carbonated drinks, especially soda, please! You are more than welcome to add extra doses of water with lemon and herbal teas. And if you would like to order extra juices from ourIn case you need more information before embarking on your first Juice Cleanse, you can download our “Juice Cleansing information for medical doctors”. This can help your doctors understand what it is about, so they can advise you accordingly.
Isn’t fiber important ? Should I be drinking juices blended together with the fiber ?
The nourishing elements in fruits and vegetables are in their enzymes, atoms and molecules, which is well-extracted through the cold-press method. The fibers in solid food have virtually no nourishing value. However, these insoluble fibers act as an intestinal broom and the during the peristaltic activity of the intestines. The removal of the insoluble fibers in the extraction of juices enables juices to be very quickly digested and assimilated, sometimes in a matter of minutes! Nonetheless, the soluble fibers is still in the juice and that is why by drinking only La Juiceria juices, satiety can also be achieved. Which means one can see the beneficial effects of the raw juices in a faster manner. Also, because the juices are “alive”, they regenerate the entire body with surprisingly rapid results. A blender merely cuts up the vegetables and fruits as fine as desired, but the pulp is retained in its entirety.
Can Almond Mylk reduce my cholesterol ?
If you are not on any medications for cholesterol lowering, La Juicera’s Almond Mylk is one of the best combo to help lower cholesterol; This is because almond is proven to lower LDL aka bad cholesterol and as for cinnamon it is infamous for aiding the metabolism of carbohydrate (which is the building block of triglyceride). Nevertheless, it is still advisable to mix with the greens to strike a balance.
