Local Lift Juice Bar in North Vancouver recently had a 3 day juice cleanse deal for $79 for 18 bottles of fresh pressed juice, herbal teas. $20 bottle deposit was requested afterwards because I wasn’t picking up the juices daily. I have always loved detoxing and resetting my body for a healthy start.
Local Lift Juice Bar 3 Day Juice Cleanse Consists of:
- 18 jars of fresh juices in mason jars
- 3 lemons (1 for each day)
- 3 cups of master cleanse mixture (12 oz cup each)
- a bunch of spirulina tablets (2500 mg)
- herbal tea bags
I have done a few juice cleanses. Comparing the prices and quality of the juice cleanses itself, I have to say my favorite is still The Juice Truck and The Juicery Co.. I will pay $195 no problem.
I did not enjoy this juice cleanse form Local Lift Juice Bar at all. Let my tell you why.
- Inconsistency and quality of each bottle
- No instructions for the juice cleanse
- No labels of ingredients
- Packaging (or lack thereof)
- Healthy and safety concerns
The problem with this juice cleanse is that it comes with no instructions. There are no description that comes with any of the juice bottles. No ingredients labeled.
I am not interested to visit their website and research what I am drinking in a “liquid facial” juice. That is silly.
I asked if there was “a specific order I should consume this cleanse?” The answer was “it doesn’t matter. Or if you must, drink the greener juices in during the day.” Puzzling.
There is no protein like shake, an almond milk or nut mylk mixture. I later found out there are spirulina tablets which acts as a protein replacement.
What bothered me the most was the inconsistency of each bottle of juice. The lackluster commitment to produce the best juice cleanse for the consumer.
- The juices are not filled to the brim and sealed.
- Oxygen promotes oxidization. See above photo.
- Some juices had more volume than others.
- By day 2, some juices were browning.
Master cleanse drinks were packaged in to go paper coffee cups. By the time it arrived home, the cups were mangled inside the red plastic trays.
The spirulina tablets were loosely packaged in pastry take out bags. Some were crushed and broken. I simply did not feel very safe taking these pills. There were again no instructions as to how many or how frequently I should be taking there spirulina tablets. I may know what spirulina tablets are. But does an average consumer? Again, there were no instructions or descriptions what these pills are.
If you are wondering. Spirulina tablets are blue green algae, 100% natural highly nutritious micro salt water plant. Spirulina contains rich vegetable protein. Spirulina health benefits include a boost to the immune system, improved digestion, controls appetite and contains a wide range of minerals.
I could not complete the juice cleanse from The Local Lift Juice Bar simply because I did not feel that it was a cleanse. I simply drank the juice as a orange juice drink, beet juice drink or whatnot.
Other facts about The Local Lift Juice Bar juice cleanse:
- The juice cleanse does not come with any packaging.
- The bottles were provided in plastic trays.
- $20 bottle deposit required for the 3 day juice cleanse.
- Pick up only. No delivery available.
I do not recommend this as juice cleanse or meal replacement. However, it may be a deal if you are looking for some fresh juices for normal consumption.
