JUICE CLEANSE FAQs
- EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
What is the best time for a juice cleanse?
When exactly is the right time for you cannot be answered in general terms. To make the most of the juice cleanse and to enable your body to regenerate as desired, you should be able to plan and allow sufficient time and mental capacity for the 3 phases of the juice cleanse: 1. "Relief phase", 2. "Fasting phase", 3. "Breaking the fast".
Relief before the cleanse:
You completely abstain from solid food during the juice cleanse. If you switch too abruptly from high-calorie, greasy meals to only raw fruit and vegetable juices from one day to the next, this is a severe shock to the body and stomach and often leads to the so-called "fasting hangover". Therefore, we recommend that you adapt your diet and habits to the new routine during the juice cleanse as much as possible a few days before the juice cleanse and slowly introduce your body to the fasting days. With these tips you can make the transition as easy as possible.
During the fast:
Although your body saves a lot of energy during the fasting days, which it normally has to use for digestion, it lacks certain energy that it otherwise gets from solid food. Try to minimize stress during the fasting period as much as possible so that your body can fully concentrate on your regeneration and you come out of the juice cleanse full of energy. This also serves as a great start for long-term post-juice routines that will help you calm down from your busy life - meditation, reading, listening to a podcast, going for a walk, or making time for your daily skincare routine are a few good examples.

Feelings of hunger may arise and you may be tempted to start breaking the fast sooner. Here it is helpful to link the juice cleanse to an occasion that particularly motivates you and keeps reminding you of your "why" during the juice cleanse. The New Year or another new phase of life in which you wish for positive change, for example, are great.

Breaking the fast:
For the time after the juice cleanse, we also recommend planning a few days that give you capacity for reflection and the beginning of new routines. You've broken addictive substances and unwanted habits, and now is the perfect time to start those healthier routines that have otherwise been difficult for you. Solidify them over the next 2-3 weeks and you will see how easy it is for you to maintain them over the long term.
Here we explain how you can best break the fast.
To make it even easier for you and so that you don't have to think about anything else, we have developed subscriptions for our supplements and daily juice packages.
The juices of your juice cleanse:
All juices are gluten and lactose free. They are completely vegan and consist exclusively of organic fruit and vegetables.
The juices are completely raw and you can enjoy them chilled within a few weeks thanks to the innovative preservation process, HPP. You can find the individual best before date printed on each bottle by laser. Store them refrigerated to ensure longer shelf life.
The bottles of the juices are compostable from PLA. Nevertheless, these are returnable bottles that you can hand in in any supermarket.
In this article you can find more information about our juices.
How is the juice cleanse being delivered?
We want to make sure that the cold-pressed juices reach you fresh and cool. That's why we send your juice cleanse by express overnight and chilled.
In order to protect the environment, we do not use plastic in our shipping boxes. Both the box itself and the insulation that keeps the inside cooler longer are made from recyclable cardboard.
How does the juice cleanse affect my body?
Consuming only juices instead of solid food for a certain period of time is a kind of reset for the body and mind. At the same time, juice fasting can be a step towards a holistic lifestyle. Instead of empty calories, saturated fatty acids, too much industrial sugar or stimulants such as alcohol, coffee and nicotine, your body receives vitamins and minerals from the juices every day, which can help strengthen your immune system and provide natural energy.

What you can(not) expect from the juice cleanse
During the fast you can always rely on the support of the DALUMA app. Here you will get tips, motivational suggestions and reminders for your juice cleanse program.
The DALUMA app offers you a "referral program" for special motivational support, especially when you are at a low point mentally or if you feel very hungry. So you can share your experiences and feelings, motivate each other.
A fasting diary or journaling also allows you to recapture the feelings of success of past days in difficult phases and thereby motivate yourself. To get additional professional input, find out more about DALUMA's numerous YouTube videos on the subject of juice fasting.
Remember: Your body lacks solid food and thus receives less energy. This can cause you to feel sluggish and not performing as well as you normally would at the start of the juice cleanse. It is therefore important that you take special care of yourself during this intensive phase: rest and get strength from breathwork & meditation, yoga and walks in nature.
Avoiding solid food allows your body to regenerate. After the initial transition phase from solid to liquid food, you will soon notice that your energy levels are noticeably higher and more stable than before. By reducing sugar during the juice cleanse, you keep your insulin level constant, which can lead to a balanced energy budget and prevent so-called "afternoon energy drops". Since fasting also increases the release of the happiness hormone serotonin, your mood will also improve noticeably during the fasting period.
Another word on weight loss: the reason for your juice fast shouldn't be to lose weight. The overarching goal of the juice cleanse is physical and mental regeneration and the kick-off of a long-term healthier diet. You will experience weight reduction through water loss as a "side effect" of the juice cleanse.
