FAQ'S

CAN A SINGLE JUICE BE USED AS A MEAL REPLACEMENT?

Absolutely. We pack enough nutrition in every juice to satisfy you when youíre on the go, or if youíre wanting a lighter yet medicinal meal.

CAN I DO A JUICE CLEANSE IF I AM PREGNANT OR NURSING?

No. Do not juice cleanse while nursing or pregnant. However, you certainly can add our fresh juice to your diet. You cannot cleanse because you need to add a lot more calories while pregnant or nursing. You also do not want to have your body go into detox mode while trying to provide your baby with nutrients.

CAN I GET A DIFFERENT JUICE CLEANSE EVERY DAY?

Absolutely. Customize your cleanse to be a different level every day. We support you and want you to enjoy your cleansing experience, so you can even customize your own cleanse by choosing your own juices.

CAN I HAVE ANY OTHER BEVERAGES BESIDES THE JUICE WHILE CLEANSING?

Yes, but please be selective! We recommend having at least eight glasses of filtered water per day in addition to your juices. Herbal tea (caffeine-free) and vegetable broths are good options as well.

DO YOU DELIVER THE JUICES EACH MORNING OR ALL AT ONCE?

Our juice cleanses are delivered three days at a time.

DOES THE CLEANSE COME WITH INSTRUCTIONS?

Our juice cleanses come with detailed instructions when you pick up your cleanse. You can always email us at info@ripejuicery.ca if you have any specific questions.

HOW DO I PLACE MY ORDER?

You can place your order online or in person. Our website makes ordering quick and easy, but if youíd like to talk in person or check out the juices first come by our shop.

HOW MANY TIMES CAN I CLEANSE?

As many times as you want!

IF I WANT TO PICK UP MY CLEANSE, WHAT ARE MY STARTING DAY OPTIONS?

You can start any day of the week.

IS ORGANIC REALLY THAT MUCH BETTER THAN NON-ORGANIC AND GENETICALLY MODIFIED PRODUCE?

Absolutely. Fresh raw cold-pressed juice made from non-organic and genetically modified produce can be TOXIC. Remember, the more you drink, the more pesticides and fertilizers your body will be ingesting.

RIPE juice is made from 100% organic produce without exception. If organic produce is not available, we will alter our recipe by substituting with another green produce or fruit that is organic. You will never find any ingredient in our juices that is not 100% organic and completely natural.

IS THE JUICE VEGAN?

All of our products are 100% vegan. No animal products are ever used.

IT SEEMS EXPENSIVE, IS THAT NORMAL?

Sure is. On average we use 3-6 pounds of organic fruit and veggies in each drink. Our juice is ultra-concentrated and we use only the highest quality ingredients we can source with no added water. If youíre getting juice for a cheaper price, thatís because itís a cheaper product to produce; itís non-organic, not locally sourced, pasteurized, or has added water. RIPE has the most nutrient-dense organic juices available; therefore our prices reflect that.

ON AVERAGE HOW MANY DAYS SHOULD I CLEANSE?

A 1-day cleanse is a great way of setting the tone for a healthy diet (some people do it as a ritual one day a week to reset their bodies). A 3-day cleanse is great starting point if you want to try the true cleansing process. A 5-day or longer cleanse goes deeper, maximizing the elimination of built-up toxins while starting to rebuild and strengthen your immune system. Itís very common for people to continue their cleanses for weeks even months at a time. At RIPE we believe listening to your body is the best way of finding out what works for you.

WHAT ARE DETOX SYMPTOMS? DOES EVERYONE GET THEM?

Built-up toxins are released on a cellular level when one does a juice fast. But how one experiences detoxing varies from person to person, and not everyone experiences detox symptoms. Detox symptoms may include: headaches, nausea, dizziness, fatigue, constipation and skin eruptions. Please follow our instructions before, during and after your cleanse to minimize detox symptoms and maximize the benefits of your cleanse. To help keep detox symptoms to a minimum, weíve designed three different cleanse levels. We are also here for support if you have any questions during the cleanse.

WHAT DO I DO WITH MY EMPTY JUICE BOTTLES?

We believe in minimizing our impact on the environment by reducing, reusing & recycling wherever we can. You can exchange your clean, rinsed & empty bottles to our store front at 118 Dunlop Street East, Barrie. Please be advised that we are unable to offer a credit for damaged, dirty or broken bottles Ė but we are more than happy to recycle them for you!

WHAT IF I HAVE A GLUTEN ALLERGY?

All of our products are 100% gluten-free.

WHAT IF I WANT TO EXTEND MY CLEANSE ANOTHER DAY LAST MINUTE?

Most likely we can supply your juice, we will try our hardest. Thereís nothing that makes us happier than when cleansers on their first, second, or third day come to our shop feeling so amazing they want to keep going. Give us a call or stop by our shop and weíll see what we can do for you.

WHAT MAKES YOUR JUICES DIFFERENT FROM WHAT I CAN BUY AT A GROCERY STORE?

Most juices at grocery stores are flash-pasteurized to reduce pathogens. This method heats the juice to high temperatures, which sterilizes the juice, destroying live enzymes and nutrients, and minimizing flavour. At RIPE our juice is cold pressed with a special type of juicer, which leaves all the vital nutrients and enzymes intact, allowing your body to absorb them efficiently.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO CLEANSE?

We recommend cleansing when you have very few distractions and feel you can commit fully to the cleanse. We want you to see the cleanse through and we want you to feel it was a success. Deciding to cleanse during holidays, family gatherings, friends in town or celebrations is generally not a good idea. We suggest cleansing after those times are over so you have time to relax, distress and focus on yourself.

WHERE DO I GET MY PROTEIN WHILE ON A CLEANSE?

With RIPE, youíll receive protein from our Green Juices as well as our Nut Mylks. While the nut mylks are a more obvious source of protein, donít discount the protein punch that comes from living plant foods. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and amino acids are in everything. Other great sources of protein include: blue-green algaes such as Chlorella, E3Live & Spirulina (64% protein.)

WHY DOES SOME OF THE JUICE ON YOUR SHELF SEPARATE?

It is a natural occurrence. RIPE Juicery does not pasteurize at all, the separation does not indicate spoilage. All you need to do is gently agitate it to mix it before drinking.

WHY SHOULD I DO A JUICE CLEANSE?

Over the years, our bodies absorb toxins from the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the stress we have, making it acidic. There is also debris that builds up around your colon and intestines from eating unhealthy, indigestible foods. One of the ways to rid your body of these toxins and debris is to alkalize by filling your body with fresh, organic, alkaline foods made into liquid form. Cleansing brings your body from an acidic state to an alkaline state, which will help you have less chance of illness, and get you on the road to optimal health.

WILL I LOSE WEIGHT ON A JUICE CLEANSE?

Weight-loss often occurs while on a cleanse, but it isnít the sole focus. How and when weight-loss occurs varies for everyone. Each person comes into the program with a different level of toxicity, a different genetic history and different hormonal patterns. For many, the body will not begin to release inflammation and extra weight until it has found balance through the cleansing process.

WILL MY METABOLISM SLOW DOWN?

Yes and no. If your metabolism is fast, chances are it will slow a little as you are not taking in as much energy. This also depends on your body; everyone is different. If you have a slow metabolism, clearing out toxins opens up channels so your body functions more efficiently.
