What is a cold-pressed juice?
Cold Pressing is the process of extracting nutrient rich juice from fresh produce by using high pressure exerted through a hydraulic press. Real Peel uses two types of machines for the juice. We use a Kuvings Slow Masticating juicer, and for larger orders we use a GoodNature X1 Cold-Pressed juicer which is recommended as the best.
No heat is applied during the extraction process which allows for low levels of oxididation during the juicing process, which does not compromise the integrity of the produce. The result is that the juice is full of flavor, rich in color and nutrient rich.
Why does the juice look different to the last time I bought it?
Our juices are made with completely natural fruits and vegetables, and variations in the color and appearance may occur. Although we make every effort to make the juices consistently, seasonal variations and the harvest location will cause minor differences in the fruits and vegetables.
My juice is settled/separated. Is it ok to drink?
All our juices are preservative and additive free or any other ingredients that can prevent the natural settling process. Give it a good shake, and its fine to drink!
Why don’t you use glass bottles?
We currently use PET #1 plastic bottles because it is safe, single use bottle. Our bottles are also 100% recyclable. We hope to get into glassware in the future, but for now this is perfectly safe!
Can I drink your juices if I am lactose intolerant?
Yes. All our juices and nut milks are 100% lactose free.
Are your juices all gluten-free?
Yes. All our juices are gluten-free.
What is the shelf life of each juice?
Real Peel juices are made fresh. We don’t add any type of preservatives to them, so as you can imagine, they are highly perishable. Depending on the juice and if it’s kept in the refrigerator, the juices can last between 4-7 days.

CLEANSING & HEALTH
What is a juice cleanse?
A juice cleanse is a short term, fresh, raw, all-liquid diet that is used for a multitude of health benefits. While cleansing, you will be flooding your body with nutrient-rich cold pressed juice while giving your digestive system a break and a chance to get rid of all of those toxins. It will change your body, your mindset and even your pallet.
Should I prepare in any special way before my cleanse?
For maximum benefits during your cleanse, prepare three days in advance. We recommend to stop or reduce your coffee intake and start eating healthier. No fast food, no processed sugars, no meat, etc. It's not a requirement, but it will make the cleanse MUCH easier and give you better results.
How often should I cleanse?
Everyone’s body is different, so the first piece of advice is to listen to your own body. Otherwise, we recommend a cleanse once every 2 months to keep an ongoing healthy lifestyle. However, if you eat particularly bad, then once a month is preferred.
Will I suffer any negative effects of the cleanse?
Everyone reacts differently, but there are some typical side effects to a juice cleanse that are good to know about and preare for. The 2nd day is typically the hardest. You might have a detox headache. This comes from not drinking coffee or from your body ridding itself of the toxins. You also might feel fatigued on day 2, but the energy should pick right back up.
What are the benefits of a juice cleanse?
The benefits of a cleanse include
- Healthier looking skin
- Clear eyes
- Better awareness of certain foods effects on the body
- Change in the pallet and taste buds
- Mental Clarity
- Improved digestion
- Overall awareness of well being
- Positive mood
- Weight loss from water weight and detoxing. (The weight loss is temporary if you go back to your diet before the cleanse.)
Can I drink alcohol while on a juice cleanse?
NO. Just don't do it!
Can I drink coffee while on a juice cleanse?
Preferably not. If you feel like your life cannot go on without it, then you are allowed 1 cup of BLACK coffee only per day.
Can I work out during a cleanse?
Yes. However, only low intensity workouts like walking, swimming, stretching, yoga, etc. You need to listen to your body.
Should I drink water during a cleanse?
YES YES YES YES! Did we make it clear enough? You should be drinking about a gallon a day during a cleanse.
Does it matter what order I drink my juices in if I am doing a cleanse?
Yes. They are labeled and the order is provided on your instruction sheet. It is important to follow the order for max benefits.
Will I lose weight on a juice cleanse?
Yes, most people lose between 4-10 pounds. Do remember that this weight loss is not a permanent solution. If you go right back to bad habits, you will gain it back quick!
Can I smoke while cleansing?
Um, you shouldn’t smoke period, but for the sake of answering this question, No you cannot smoke during a cleanse.
Can I eat solid foods while on a cleanse?
We recommend that you do not eat while you are cleansing. However if you feel like you are getting faint or can’t control yourself, a piece of fruit or raw vegetables would be fine.
How should I store my juice?
Always in the refrigerator. Try not to keep them out too long.
Every single person is different and our nutritional needs are different. That’s often why those 30-day quick-fixes or the meal plans your health & fitness role model offers don’t work. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to your health. We can, however, get you on the right path.
Nutritional Therapy is more than a meal plan. We go over health and family history, perform assessments and the functional evaluation which allows us to determine deficiencies and dysfunctions and customize personal care plans that align with your health needs.
What Plan is Right for You?
We have many options for you to choose from.
To see those options, we are going to redirect you to our nutrition website.

It's not just business. It's personal.
In 2014, creator and owner of Real Peel Juice, Aubrey Spigener was diagnosed with Gastroparesis. Unable to eat much at all, she was constantly feeling horrible and had a miserable time figuring out how to help herself.
After countless medications, tests and trial and error, Aubrey tried acupuncture. That certainly helped, but it wasn’t the full change her body needed.
In late 2015, Aubrey's brother suggested she try juicing. Desperate for something to actually work, she gave it a shot and was amazed by how much better she felt. Not only was Aubrey's stomach getting the help it needed, but the rest of her body was benefitting too.
After a few months of juicing, Aubrey was back to a healthy weight, had more energy, and overall felt better. She desired to share this newfound knowledge with everyone. Aubrey says,
"If we can make even one person feel like I do now, then I would be totally happy. Happy juicing, and Keep It Real.”
