Q & A about DrJuice

  1. What is Cold Pressed Vege-Fruit Juice?
    Typically, we make juices in blender or juicer extractor, the blade in the blender will produce heat throughout the blending process, and water will be added to the juice. Enzymes in the fruits and vegetables will be destroyed and nutrients lot in oxidation. That’s why most juices can only fresh for 15 minutes before it turns black. However, cold pressed machine extracts juices using high pressure method without producing heat. All vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, active enzymes and natural antibiotic in fruits and vegetables are well-preserved effectively. The value of nutrient is 3 to 5 timers higher than ordinary juices.
  2. ln stead of doing the CBC fasting detoxification through DrJuice CBC Cold Pressed Vege-Fruit Juice, why don’t I do it with my own preparation as this is more economical?
    Generally, the home slow juicer motor is much weaker than the commercial grade Cold Pressed machines. The food residues from our professional cold pressed machines are very dried up, whereas the food residues from the slow juicer still juicy. Yet, sometimes from saving perspective, it is hard to decide whether to finish up the juicy but tasteless residues, or just dump them. Each DrJuice CBC fasting package uses 10’s of ingredients, to ensure a balance between taste and nutrients. It is quite troublesome for homemade as 10 to 20 types of ingredients are required, moreover, a lot of ingredients may be wasted. Even if you willing to spend big bucks for the professional cold pressed machine, don’t forget about the preparation of the ingredients and the aftermath cleanings, this is not worthy.
  3. Isn’t it better to take the vegetable and fruits directly?
    The absorption of nutrients from a vegetable fruits juice is 3 times more from the chewing of normal vegetable or fruits! There are a lot of efforts required, start from sourcing the best vegetable and fruits, freshly preparing for every meal, finding the appropriate combinations in terms of colour and nutrients, calculating the right amount of intakes, washing time, slicing time, until aftermath. If you have the bandwidth to do all of these, then it is worthy to take the vegetables and fruits directly!
  4. Any water, sugar or additives added to DrJuice CBC Cold Pressed Vege-Fruit Juice?
    DrJuice insists on natural taste. There is no additional add-ons (water, sugar nor additive), every single drop is 100% purity. Every set of the cold pressed CBC fasting juice is extracted from 3-4 Kgs of vegetables and fruits, to preserve the natural micro nutrients of the vegetables and fruits. This is a whole new approach for nutrients absorption and healthy lifestyles.

  11. Is fasting able to effectively cure any type of sickness?
    Can be deemed as positive. Our body has a natural healing ability to maintain our health. In this current environment, everywhere is full of toxins; whatever we eat, drink and breathe are toxificated. When our body is polluted by these toxins, our natural body immune ability is weakened, which will be followed by sickness.

Thus, fasting has its effectiveness on any chronic illness.

When it reaches the post-phase of fasting period, you might feel that you don’t want to have so much of vege-fruit juice as you might have a bloat after drinking too much of vege-fruit juice.

    If you are having long-term medication, you may consult doctor or guider about the medication whether it can be stopped during the fasting period before you start fasting.

It’s recommended that you should start reducing the dosage of medication during the food reduction stage, stop having medication during the fasting stage and finally adjust the dosage of medication according to your body condition when you break fast. During the period when you reduce the dosage and stop taking medication, you must check and observe your body reaction every day.

Q & A of Break Fast Stage

  1. What are the consequences if there is no proper preparation to revert back to normal meals?
    In the event the preparation work is not properly done, it will be a failure. The stomach and colon will be most affected (especially for above 3 days’ fasting). For example, if you go through a 7 day fasting, and immediately go for heavy meals on the 8th day, the stomach and colon would not be able to take it. This is because during the 7 days, your stomach and colon were in a resting condition, they are not able to adjust so quickly to resume into the usual mode. As such, it is important to have a proper transition to resume to normal meals. Taking care of oneself is like looking after a baby.
