As frequent readers of this blog know, I am no stranger to cleanses whether they’re home juiced, purchased, made from powder or simply made up.

Eat crap for a few weeks, feel bad, crave juice, and get back on another cleanse only to have the vicious cycle start all over again.

I signed up for a 5 day juice feast expecting another few days of yummy tasting fruit and vegetable juices. The juices are flown in fresh from LA every morning and delievered to you before 10:30 am, anywhere in the US. Like many other juicing companies, the anchor of the program are their green juices, followed by a red juice, a Master Cleanse type lemonade juice, and a heartier “nut” juice.

The iZo Cleanze also comes with four teas, a few nutritional supplements and half a jar of “hyper-mineralized oxygenated alkaline water.” What it should also come with is a warning label- “For serious cleansers only!” READ MORE
