Ready to kickstart your journey towards lasting health habits that actually work? Look no further than starting a juice cleanse!

Here at Suja Organic, we view cleanses as more than just a detox – they're like hitting the reset button on your lifestyle. Feeling a bit off your game lately? Some find that a cleanse helps them feel rejuvenated, though results can vary by individual.

So, where do you begin? Well today, we're dishing out insider tips on how to embark on a cleanse, including all the must-know details about our best-selling 3-Day Juice Cleanse, which could be an excellent starting point for you. Let’s begin!

How to Do a Cleanse

We won’t beat around the bush—starting a juice cleanse is an investment in YOUR overall wellness, which you can’t put a price tag on. However, if you want to get the most out of your cleanse, here are some inside tips to consider.

Prep Your Body, Pre-Cleanse

It’s completely natural to crave a double chocolate brownie at night or indulge in that crusty marinara pizza on date night. But to immediately dive head first into juices and nutrient-dense foods might shock the system. Our advice is to help prime your body by slowly eliminating the following in your diet a week or two before cleansing:

  • Coffee
  • Alcohol
  • Dairy
  • Red meat
  • Sugar
  • White flour
  • Bread products

With that in mind, we highly encourage adding more nutritious items like fresh vegetables, fruits, and whole grains to ease into the cleanse more effectively!

Train Your Mind

If you’re new to cleansing, introducing juices into your daily routine might feel foreign or a bit unnatural. In the beginning, you might even feel resistance, nervousness, or a longing to raise that “I’m done” flag. Which again, is completely normal.

So in anticipation of those emotions [potentially] bubbling to the surface, practice getting your mindset right beforehand! This could look like doing 5-10 minutes of morning meditation, practicing daily affirmations, and even envisioning how you’ll feel emotionally and physically, post-cleanse. Getting into this type of rhythm can certainly help you complete your cleanse if you hit a few speed bumps along the journey!

Be Intentional About Your Start Date

If you’re heading into wedding season or about to indulge in a celebratory weekend, it might be best to hold on starting a cleanse. To set yourself up for success, find a two-week window that you can dedicate to cleansing. You might also want to let your friends and family know about your cleanse, so they know not to tempt you with a cocktail or two.

Don’t Skim Over the Directions

It might be easy to glaze over your cleanse instructions, but we promise you, it’s worth doing a deep dive! For instance, our 3-day cleanse comes with an easy-to-follow user manual that details what to expect. This includes the exact order of the eight juices to consume throughout the day! Here are the juices that come in this cleanse:

  • Celery Juice: Made only with locally-grown celery and a touch of fresh lemon, be prepared to sip on the highest-quality cold-pressed celery juice on the market, formulated to repair and recharge. Zero added sugar + USDA organic!
  • Vibrant Probiotic: Also designed to support immune and digestive health, this berry-forward, cold-pressed juice features sweet strawberry, raspberry, lemon, honey, tart cherry, and probiotics. You’ll drink two of these per day!
  • Mighty Dozen: Referenced as the tastiest green juice around to boost daily energy, Mighty Dozen is packed with crisp apple, celery, cucumber, kale, collard greens, lemon, peppermint tea, spearmint tea, spinach, ginger, spirulina, chlorella, and barley grass. You’ll also sip on two of these per day!
  • Citrus Immunity: There’s nothing better than fresh orange juice packed with nutrients your body craves, like vitamins C & D, plus zinc and live probiotics.

Get a Reusable Water Bottle

Your BFF during any cleanse (not just ours) will be water, which is a critical component! Keeping 100% hydrated throughout the day will help your body absorb the essential nutrients and flush out any waste. Because you might be consuming even more water than normal, we suggest keeping a reusable water bottle on your desk or somewhere nearby, just so it’s a mental reminder to drink up!

Keep the Workouts Light

The last thing you want to do is overwhelm your body while cleansing. That’s exactly why we suggest engaging in light to moderate workouts during your cleanse, just so you don’t hit a point of exhaustion.

Activities like light jogging or a yoga flow session are just the right amount of endurance. Also if hunger is kicking in, that’s totally fine! Opting for raw foods like fruits and vegetables can help curb that sensation.

You might be wondering, what are the macros of the 3-Day cleanse? Per day, the juice in the cleanse contains 560 calories, 98g of sugar, and 122g of carbs. The optional oatmeal contains 300 calories if you decide to add it.

Luxuriate in the Benefits

We hinted at this already, but starting a cleanse not only recalibrates your body towards healthy habits, but it can fuel your self-confidence! Completing a detox can be challenging, but it might also provide a sense of accomplishment and personal growth.

"Individual results from juice cleanses can vary. We recommend consulting with a healthcare provider to determine what’s best for your individual health needs."

On top of this, a cleanse can support overall wellness—elevating your overall immunity and digestion. Based on a recent study, fruit and vegetable juices can help the gut microbiota and increase well-being.1

“Delicious, easy to follow, loved the snack options which came in clutch. This was my first time actually trying a cleanse and it was so well worth it. Also, compared to other juices, these stay longer in the fridge and you're not forced to finish them before they expire. For the quality, priced very well against competitors. I'll be a returning customer. I actually recommended it to a friend and she just started the cleanse a few days ago and loves it.” - Verified Buyer, Sophia Rachelle
