Win with the Pressed Juice Co.

The Pressed Juice Co.

I’ve wanted to try a juice cleanse for ages and decided to give it a whirl just after my birthday this year; you know, to detox post all of the celebratory festivities. I was approached by the Pressed Juiced Company, a Johannesburg-based cold pressed juice, juice cleansing and nut milk company and decided to commit to their 3 day winter juice cleanse. Each of the three days is divided into a 6-part schedule matched to a healthy juice combo:

  1. Pressed green
  2. Pressed pink
  3. Pressed red
  4. Apple pie
  5. Hard-core red
  6. Cashew nut-milk

I found the experience equal parts tough and rewarding. It’s the first time I’ve ever not allowed myself solids and I must admit, it messed with my head a little. I didn’t realise how much we rely on chewing and that full feeling. I mean, I wasn’t starving by any means, and in fact I skipped the hard-core red twice. It’s just that not feeling full played on my mind and I started to re-evaluate my relationship with food and fullness which I think is a good thing. Day one was tough, day two was really hard and day three was relatively easy for some reason. Your body definitely starts to acclimatise. I was lucky in that I didn’t experience headaches or any other side-effects, however some people do. I noticed a big improvement in my energy levels a couple days later; I felt like a million bucks. It’s been about 2 weeks since I did the cleanse and I’m still feeling really good. If you’d asked me on day two if I’d do it again I’d say never, but having finished the three days and experienced the after-effects I’d absolutely to it again in a couple months time. They say you shouldn’t do it too regularly, with at least 6 week intervals in between. 

The Pressed Juice Co. has an online store you can order your juices, cleanses or nut-milks from, and there are collection points in Bryanston and Illovo. Click here to order online.
