Cold-Pressed Juice Frequently Asked Questions
ISN’T THE JUICE I MAKE AT HOME THE SAME AS SPJ JUICE?
Juice made at home on a traditional centrifugal or rotary juicer is already exposed to heat and oxidation before it enters your glass, beginning to break down the vital elements that you want to extract. Because of this, juice made on these machines has to be consumed immediately. SPJ uses a X-1 Cold Press Machine. These machines are able to extract much higher concentrations of vitamins and minerals. 9 tons of pressure extract all the nourishing elements from the ingredients, rupturing the cell walls and liberating an abundance of nutrients, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and chlorophyll. The cold pressed method of extraction produces a much more nutritious juice that is able to stay fresh and vital for a few days with proper storage- and it tastes better too!
WHAT ABOUT JUICE FROM OTHER JUICE BARS?
Most juice bars use a centrifugal juicer, which speeds oxidation due to heat and oxygen generated in the extraction process. This kills vital nutrients, enzymes, etc. SPJ juices are always cold pressed daily with the highest quality standards to preserve all the wonderful things that make our juices the best – literally. Come taste the difference of juice with integrity.
DO I HAVE TO REFRIGERATE MY JUICE?
Yes. Juice and nut mylks should be stored at 40º F or below at all times for your safety.
IS IT OKAY IF MY JUICE IS SEPARATED?
That’s absolutely okay — beautiful even — just keep it refrigerated and shake it up!
WHEN I’M NOT CLEANSING, HOW OFTEN SHOULD I DRINK JUICE?
Before and after cleansing, we recommend drinking 1-3 juices per day. After that, at least 1 juice a day is a great way to incorporate healthy, raw fruits and vegetables into your daily routine. You’ll feel the difference!
DO I NEED TO DO A 3-DAY CLEANSE TO FEEL BETTER?
Definitely not. Giving your body a break, whether it’s for 1-day or 10-days is a great way to “recharge the batteries,” so to speak. On a 1-day cleanse, your body will still have ample time to take a break from digesting solid foods, diverting enzymes directly to your bloodstream and intestines.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I DO A CLEANSE?
That’s totally up to you! Everyone is different, just listen to your body! Many people enjoy cleaning once a month or once every couple of months.
