Common questions

Health

Will this slow my metabolism?

Everyone and every cleanse experience is different. Typically, if you have a fast metabolism you may slow down as you are not taking in as much energy. However, if you have a slow metabolism, clearing out toxins allows your body to begin functioning more efficiently.

 

Where do I get my protein?

With Thrive you’ll receive protein from our Green Juice as well as our Cashew Nut Milk. The Amino acids in green juice are the building blocks of protein. Other great sources of protein include blue-green algae and Green Superfood Powders that can be found at your local Whole Foods.

 

How much weight will I lose?

The Thrive cleanse is designed to give your digestive system a rest and therefore allow your body to eliminate toxins. Loosing weight is a happy side effect. If you have weight to lose, you will lose pounds based on the number of days you cleanse. Typically those that do a three day cleanse will loose 2-3lbs.

 

Will I gain all the weight back?

Thrive will help you rest, reset your cravings, and put you on a path towards healthier habits. The Thrive cleanse makes you want to focus on what you’re putting into your body. We offer additional nutritional counseling to help you stay on track before or after your cleanse.

 

What’s the difference between the green and fruit juices?

Thrive’s green juice is very alkalizing, while fruit juices are more astringent. The fruit will dig up the toxins and the greens will move it out.

 

What if I have a gluten allergy?

We are gluten free. Our juices have no additives and are 100% vegan.

 

What if I have a nut allergy?

We can switch out your Cozy Cashew drink with Lemonade.

 

Organic Cold Pressed Juices

Why cold pressed?

Thrive juices are made on a hydraulic cold press.  This pressing action doesn’t heat or oxidize the produce, which results in a nutritionally packed juice with live enzymes, vitamins, trace minerals, and other vital elements. One bottle of Thrive  Juice contains over 3 pounds of raw, organic produce.  We do not pasteurize our juices, they are live and need proper refrigeration to maintain their nutritional stability for 72 hours after being pressed.

 

Where does your produce come from?

Thrive sources its organic produce locally within the Bay Area.

 

 

Environment

Why don’t you use glass bottles?

While glass is pretty, plastic is more environmentally sound choice than glass. We use PETE #1 plastic as it is generally considered the safest single-use plastic-bottle choice.
