A cleanse won’t make you look like Elle McPherson, but it might make you feel like her bank account (a million dollars).
This is what you could expect from a Raw Juice Cleanse:
- Increased energy levels
- Clearer, more vibrant skin
- A revitalized digestive system

Q: My juice looks funny HELP?
A: Natural separation in cold pressed juice is normal! A simple shake of the bottle will redistribute the sedentary part of the juice. If you just found it in the trunk of your car from a year ago we suggest you throw it out (And clean your car out more often).
Q: Why plastic bottles instead of glass, I like polar bears ?
A: We like polar bears too, thats why we use plastic. Not only are plastic bottles easier to recycle expending less energy, but they are also lighter which means less fuel is used to create and deliver the bottles. Also the HPP process we use to protect you from harmful bacteria requires the use of plastic bottles. Our bottles are 100% BPA free, we are on your side green crusader.
Q: What is HPP?
A: Well you gon learn today, HPP stands for high pressure processing. This is used to extend shelf life and help maintain essential vitamins minerals and phytonutrients.
Q: What’s the difference between HPP and standard pasteurization with heat?
A: Unlike thermal pasteurization, HPP is effective in retaining nutrients, flavor and texture of a product. HPP utilizes intense pressure (sometimes up to 120,000 lbs/sq inch) to kill harmful bacteria, however the pressure isn’t enough to destroy and/or alter bonds or compounds of the actual juice.
Q: What’s the difference between your cold pressed juice and juice that I make at my house?
A: Traditional blenders and centrifugal juicers use high speed and heat, destroying some of the nutrients and makes them harder for your body to digest. Our Cold-Pressed method involves 2 steps. The first involves converting the whole fruits and vegetables into a wet pulp. From there, the pulp is pressed- not by hand (thats crazy talk) but with a machine that operates at a super slow rpm which helps release all of the essential nutrients and without heating and damaging them(that's why we call it cold-pressed).
Also, we’ve taken the guess work out of the juice making/ tasting so you dont have to figure out how to drink your newly made juice that tastes like grass.
Q: Where is your production facility?
A: We would tell you but we’d have to kill you. Not really, we press our juices over at our bricks and mortar store in Tamarac, Florida. Come in, say hi and see who’s got the juice.
Q: Can i drink your juices if I’m cutting out gluten or intolerant to lactose?
A: We don’t discriminate here at The Raw Juice Company, those with gluten and lactose intolerance can enjoy our juices a plenty.
Q: What about all the fiber I’m missing out on, I heard fiber is real good for you?!
A: Fiber is great for you, we love fiber too. But the breakdown of fiber requires significant energy expenditure, juicing can help to alleviate the stress on your digestive tract and give that guy a break.
Q: Do you sponsor athletes?
A: Of course we love athletes!! LeBron, Jim Brown, David Beckham get in touch.
