About the juices

If it’s your first time detoxing, we are sure that there are 101 questions that you are unsure of, about our product, how it works and what you might go through under this programme. If you have any questions that we can help you with, please email us at enquiry@theresa.com.sg and we will be happy to assist you.

1. Is This Organic?

Yes, our juices are 100% organic and made with only the freshest, organically grown fruits. They are harvested in France by the most modern technology to preserve the fruits’ wholesome goodness. Our juices are made under strict quality controls, with mandatory annual certification by Ecocert and Agriculture Biologique under the European Organic Legislation EEC 2092/91. Hence it is free from herbicides, pesticides, pollution and chemicals.

2. How are the juices produced?

Science plays an integral part in the extraction and bottling process, through the cold-pressed extraction method and precise pasteurized treatment, to preserve all the nutritional qualities and freshness. This 100% natural product is also free from all preservatives.

3. Do I have to bring the whole 1 litre of bottle out?

It’s entirely up to you! If you are out and about, you can pour the juices into a thermal bottle and that will keep the juices chilled for drinking. But do ensure that you finish the juices within that day!

4. I want to lose weight, what program should I go for?

To discuss weight loss, we need to first identify the reasons for weight gain. Weight gain can be due to increase of fat percentage due to overeating and lack of exercise. It can also be due to water retention or poor metabolic rate.To better identify your problem, you should call the helpline at 6482 1187 before deciding which program you should embark on. Alternatively, you can make an appointment to visit the outlets to do a complimentary Inner Body Analysis and Lifestyle Test to identify the weight issue.

5. How will your juices help me lose weight?  

Under the Burn for Weight loss, the combination of the juices are set in a way to Cleanse, Burn Fats and Restore Energy. Through this program, you will be able to rid of your body the nasty toxics that has been hiding in your body. It will also increase your metabolic rate to speed up the fat burning process without the heart palpitations like slimming pills. You will also not go hungry during this program as the juices are chockfull of fibre that will ensure that your stomach is filled up and satisfied.

Flush for Water Retention is for you – we have seen spectacular results with clients losing up to 5kg within 3 days only on this program. You have to try it to believe it!

6. I don’t need to lose weight, do I still need to detox?

You don’t need to be overweight to detox. EVERYBODY needs to detox. The human body was originally made to cleanse itself and fight against diseases and viruses naturally. With new environmental stresses like pesticides and heavy metals entering our food chain, excessive partying and drinking to ‘relieve stress’, the body’s natural detoxification system now pose a challenge to the organs in our body.

The busy executive’s diet now comprise of more “fast foods”, more “trans fats” and “low fat diets” which naturally means high levels of simple sugars in our food. With the addition of trash food in our system, it is only natural that we leave waste in our body- that is, waste that gets stuck in the colon. Additional waste in the body WILL stop you from absorbing essential nutrients and also adds on additional weight in the body. Thus, the first step to looking and feeling fabulous is getting your internal system cleansed to what nature has intended.

About the cleanse

1. Which level of cleanse do I go for?

With the Beginner Cleanse, it is a 3 days program that you can embark on to do a basic detox. For 3 days straight in that week, you will consume the juices only (ideally). With the Advance Cleanse, it’s a 6 days program that you can embark on for 6 days straight if you think you have done a detox program before. To start off, you can break the program down to a 2 weeks program where:

Week 1: Do a Basic Cleanse for 3 days

Week 2: Do part 2 of the Advance Cleanse

2. So how many days should I do the detox for?

It really depends on your lifestyle habits and whether or not you have done a cleansing before. If this is your very first time, we recommend that you begin with the 3 days Beginner Program and slowly work your way up. If you lead a healthy lifestyle with raw and natural foods, you can extend the program to a 6 days program that will bring you more cleansing that your body will thank you for.

3. Does it mean that a 1-day cleanse is not beneficial?

Of course not! 1-day cleanse is a quick strategy to strengthen your immune system by giving your body a rest from one day of stopping solid food intake, and getting all the goodness of our cold pressed juices for the day.

4. How often should I cleanse?

Minimally, once a month of 3 days cleansing program is recommended. Basically, whenever you feel like your immune system is down or your body feels void of energy, lack of sleep, constipation, you should do a detox. Especially after a good overindulgence in your festive foods, you should also do a cleansing. This will help to reset your system to what nature intended and maintain your health to its best state.

5. What if I’m pregnant?

You may want to get the go ahead from your doctor. However as the juices are 100% organic and is chockfull of nutrients, there usually would not be a problem at all.

6. Can I cleanse if I have a medical issue

If you are diabetic, you should speak to our cleansing specialist for a program more suited for you.

7. Can I put my child on a cleanse program?

It is not necessary to put your child on a cleansing program. But they can still consume the juices safely without any side effects. The Apple Blackcurrant is a hot favourite with the kids and is a great supplement to their diet.

8. Can I cleanse if I’m currently breastfeeding?

We do not recommend breastfeeding mums to go for a full Juice Cleanse program as the calories from the juices are not enough to meet the daily requirements of a lactating mum. What we do recommend is that you can actually consume the juices as a supplement drink to your normal diet. Which means you will still eat as per normal and can take in the juices anytime, without having to stick to a schedule or sequence. The nutrients from the juices are actually good for the baby too!

9. What if I fell sick before my cleanse?

Juice cleansing is a great way to support your body in healing from injury and sickness. Doing a cleanse gives your digestive system a rest, giving your body a break from the task of digesting solid food. Your body can focus the energy into detoxification, recovery and healing. But we ask that you listen to your body and consult a doctor if you’re unsure.

During the cleanse

1. Where do I get my protein?

Greens have an amazing amount of protein. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and they are in all fruits and vegetables. Plus, you’ll be receiving extra protein from our Nut Milk beverage.

2. There is no fiber in the juices. Isn’t fiber good for me?

Fiber is best known for its ability to prevent or relieve constipation but when the body must work to separate out juice from fiber, there is an energy expenditure there that is significant. For our cleansing purposes, we want to reduce this burden as much as possible so that we can give the body and digestive tract a break from having to break down solid food – so that the saved energy can be transferred to cleansing processes.

3. What if I’m hungry?

The program has been designed to ensure that you won’t be hungry due to its high content in fibre. You can slowly sip the juices while drinking to get over the psychological urge for something more substantial. However if you feel like eating, you can munch on vegetables and fruits or natural yoghurt with fresh fruits (not the ones with flavoured fruits and chockfull of sugar off the shelves!) Also, you should drink plenty of water in between your juices to flush out more toxics. It will really make a difference, trust us!

That being said, try your best to fight it!

4. Will I gain back the weight that I have lost through the program?

Well, we have to be realistic and understand that there are no magic pill out there that promises longevity and forever youth. If you’ve lost weight through the program and thereafter indulge in fatty foods again, obviously you will gain back the weight.

We are responsible for what we put into our body and maintenance is necessary to ensure that our body do not break down. Undergoing the detox program is to give your system a break of the nasty oversaturated fats, simple sugars and processed foods that we eat on a regular basis.

Weight loss is also dependant on individual’s body system and should not be the key objective in embarking on a detox program. This cleaning system should make you think twice about what you eat everyday. If you are religious about the cleansing program, your waistline and skin will thank you for it!

5. Should I be exercising during the detox?

Some light exercise if good to flush out toxics. However when you are on the detox program, your calorie intake is also low, so do take note of not overexerting yourself.

6. Can I still take supplements during the cleanse?

You should give it a rest during the cleansing period. But if your medications are under doctor’s instructions, by all means.

7. How about coffee, teas and alcohol?

Ideally, you should avoid foods that are high in acid during the detox program. But, if you are a coffee addict, keep to maximum 1 cup a day. We carry Organic Herbal tea that are more soothing for your body that you can try out too!

8. Or diet soda?

NO NO NO! Drink plently of water and herbal tea.

9. How about smoking?

NO NO NO. The image on the cigarette pack says it all.

10. Do I have to follow the order of the drinks?

Please do! The drinks are ordered for your body to best absorb the nutrients. That said, if you need to improvise – like take half of your Nut Milk beverage in the morning instead of at night or if you accidentally bring the wrong bottles to work – go easy on yourself! You are still consuming all of that goodness.

11. Does it matter if I drink all the juices or can I skip some if I’m full?

We encourage you to finish all of the beverages, if possible. However, we also ask that you follow what your body is telling you to do. It is not advisable to force anything.

12. What should I do if my stool is bloody?

Is it? Maybe it’s the beetroot in the juice. If it is, consult a doctor.

13. I think I’m constipated, it that normal?

This is normal. Very simply, less input, less output.

14. How will I feel when detoxing?

Headaches, aches and low on energy may occur during the first day and you need not worry about it. Your body is purging itself of the accumulated toxics in the body and once it leaves your system, you will feel it and see it!
