Made with 100% vegetables and/or fruit, “cold-pressed” refers to the technique of extracting the juice from the produce used. This technique relies on a hydraulic press machine that yields the highest nutritional values from the vegetables and fruit.

What is the shelf life of cold-pressed juices?

Generally, cold-pressed juices may be kept in cool storage for a longer period than other fresh juices (up to 48 hours). However, we recommend consuming them fresh, on the day of production to best enjoy all the health and nutritional benefits of the juice.

What is the recommended frequency for Blénd's DAYTOX programs?

First of all, we invite you to find the right time and place for committing to the program fully, a time when you can relax a little and enjoy a well-balanced daily routine. We recommend the 1 day DAYTOX program at the start of every week, after a long weekend of partying, or when you simply need a boost of energy. The 3 days DAYTOX program is recommended for once every three month and 5 days program every six months, preferably during transition seasons – autumn and spring.

Are there any side effects I should anticipate?

In order to minimize possible side effects it is best if you commit to our detailed guidelines. If you’re used to drinking coffee, you may experience some headaches during the cleanse. That’s why it’s important that you avoid coffee in the couple of days prior to when you start cleansing. If you feel uneasy or experience any extreme bodily sensations, stop the program immediately and consult with your doctor.
