FAQ

1) How is Urban Remedy Indonesia cleanse different from other cleanses?

Our juices are cold-pressed and made fresh daily with the finest imported and some locally produced fruits and vegetables. Our cold-pressed process locks in all the essential vitamins and minerals that typically get lost with other forms of traditional juicing that use heat or pasteurization.

2) Does Urban Remedy Indonesia has a store?

We do not have a flag store on our own for now, however we do have partnership with Rock Paper Scissors in Jakarta and several stores coming up very soon.

3) How many types of Urban Remedy Indonesia detox packages?

For now, there are 4 types: Basic detox & Premium detox package that you can choose from level 1 or level 2, from 1 day, 3 days or 5 days.

4) What is the difference between Regular / Classic / Signature Detox?

Regular detox will help you in  overall mood, mind and attitude ; Classic detox will help to strengthen your immune system by detoxifying your liver ; Signature deox will increase your longevity and overall skin and health.  Overall, the function of all the three detox packages are the same – to flush out the toxins away and to “reset” your body system and aids in weight loss. 

5) Should I do a 1- day cleanse , 3-days cleanse or a 5-days cleanse?

This depends on what you would like to get out of the cleanse program. Cleansing for 5 days is a deeper, more intense experience than cleansing for 3 days vs to 1 day. It's up to you to do an evaluation of where you are in your life and from there decide what works best for you. You always want to plan your cleanse for a period of time where you have some flexibility in your schedule and can make your body your top priority. Of course, you can always customize the program to last even longer than 5 days if you so desire. Listen to your body. If you are inexperienced, we recommend starting with our 3 days Basic or Premium cleanse. 

6) How much weight will I lose?

Remember, this is a nutritional cleanse designed to give your digestive system a rest and therefore allow your body to eliminate toxins. If you do lose weight, and that was something you were looking for while cleansing, then that’s just a happy side effect. 

 

7) Will I gain all the weight back?

If weight control is your goal, Urban Remedy Indonesia cleanse will put you on a path towards healthier habits. Many people report being able to focus more on what they are putting into their body after the cleanse. Make this your goal in preparing for your cleanse, and ask yourself, “What am I going to do when this cleanse is over?” It’s an opportunity to “reset.”

8) How long can my juices last?

All juices can last within 3 days after you receive it.  It's super fresh, completely raw and non-pasteurized.

 

9) Can I drink and smoke during the cleanse?

I think you already know the answer to this, but we won’t tell you how to live your life. Just how we’d live ours. Drinking and smoking is not recommended during your cleanse.

 

10) Will URI help me quit smoking?

It’s possible! If you do URI for an extended period of time then you’re bound to lose some nasty habits. If for example, you were to do 10 days, (w/ some supplemental foods); you would likely find at the end of your URI that you don’t want to put “bad” or unhealthy products back into your system. Any Urban Remedy Indonesia cleanse for this length of time can help you evaluate any bad habits.

 

11) Can i exercise while on the Juice Cleanse?

Yes! The Urban Remedy Indonesia juice is pure and natural nutrition. It provides a huge amount of nutrients and is specifically designed to be done while carrying on with a normal, busy lifestyle. For those who want to continue a serious workout regime while cleansing, the Shred component provides an increase in energy to fuel workouts and adequate protein to repair muscles post workout. Shred is composed of two juices specially formulated and designed to give fitness enthusiasts a natural fuel and recovery source.

 

12) Can I do work on a cleanse? What if I have to focus on important meetings?

There is a big misconception that you will spend the entirety of your cleanse program in a brain fog. Fortunately, it's simply not true. So don't worry about work, just go on with your normal life. Remember that your body and mind are getting nourishment with your day’s intake already planned out leaving you with less focus on where or how you are getting your next meals. Just try to stay away from the donuts and coffee in the conference room!

13) So, there will be instructions in it right?

Of course, we send a prep email to everyone prior, during and after to their cleanse.

14) Can i freeze the juices?

f you are unable to begin your cleanse or drink your juices within the use by window, you are able to freeze your juices for consumption later. We recommend unscrewing the lids and pouring a little of the liquid out to account for expansion of juices once frozen. When ready to consume, simply defrost in a cool bowl of water the night before and pop into your fridge the next morning, shake well and enjoy! Please be sure to consume entirely within three days of thawing. Also please be aware that the texture and appearance of the juice may change after freezing.

 

15) How am I supposed to drink my juices?

Drink them from 09.00am onwards starting from bottle number 1 to 6 with an interval of two hours. It is absolutely recommended to drink lemon water beforehand.  Do not forget to drink lots of water throughout the day.

16) Does it really matter what order I drink the juices?

It does! While we highly encourage playing with food, the order in which you consume your juices directly effects how you absorb, assimilate, and digest nutrients. For example, when your stomach is empty first thing in the morning, it’s able to assimilate whatever you put in it much more than if you consumed something prior. That is why we always have Green Juice first. Your body will absorb ALL of the vitamins and nutrients without interruption. That said, don't worry if you DO have to switch it up a bit and maybe have half of your Raw Almond Nut Milk first thing in the morning instead of last because you're used to a protein fix the second you open your eyes, and you'll absolutely lose it if you don't have it. This is when we can give ourselves permission to improvise.

17) What if I get hungry?

Consume your juices slowly and conscientiously. If you find your hunger unbearable, we recommend you snack on only fruits and vegetables.

18) I have never cleansed before. How do I know that I can handle it?

Remember that our cleanses offer a great amount of nutrients and are not intended to deprive you. Our cleanses are designed to give you everything that you need to make it through your day. Just make sure to take it a little slower than usual and listen to your body.

19) Can I do URI and eat food too?

The benefits of a cleanse will be lost if you eat solid food in addition to the juices. The idea of a cleanse is to only consume the juice so that your digestive system has time to rest. However, if you want to supplement your current diet with cold pressed juice it’s great for digestion and packed with vitamins and minerals.

20) Will I get light-headed if I’m not eating solid food?

On the contrary, one's mind becomes clearer and one's ability to solve problems enhances. This is because instead of large amounts of blood and nervous energies being sent to the digestive organs to break down a meal, that extra blood, oxygen, and energy is sent and utilized by the brain.

 

21) What are detox symptoms? Will I get them?

During a cleanse, the body is essentially tearing down all of the "bad stuff" and rebuilding with new material. To make room for that new material, the "bad stuff" needs to leave; how it makes its exit is your potential crisis. For example: when the body eliminates coffee, symptoms usually include headaches, nervousness, and shakiness. When protein, meats, and fats are eliminated, you may experience skin eruptions, foul body odor, or a coated tongue.

22) I haven’t gone to the bathroom at all, and we’re on day two. Is that normal? Is this safe?

This and the opposite are completely normal side effects of the Urban Remedy Indonesia cleanses and one of the reasons to schedule a colonic. Reduced input means reduced output.

23) How should I store my juice?

In your fridge.  FYI: You should take your juices out of the cooler box before you put it in the fridge. Remember to toss the ice packs in the freezer so they’re ready should you need to tote your juice around.

24) Can I do this if I am pregnant or nursing?

Yes but only as a supplement to your current diet.

Alone? No. You actually need to add a LOT more calories than you normally consume while nursing. The body is looking for all the calories it can find so your child can grow, etc. The problem with any type of cleanse while pregnant or nursing is that you release a substantial amount of toxins back into your system, which is

what your baby relies on for nourishment. That said, adding Urban Remedy Indonesia juices to your regular diet while nursing and/or pregnant will give you the added nourishment your body so desperately needs during that time.

 

25) Can I cleanse while taking antibiotics?

Urban Remedy Indonesia is actually the perfect partner for your antibiotics. While antibiotics fight off harmful bacteria they also deplete the body’s supply of healthy bacteria. Urban Remedy Indonesia is packed with nutrients that support a healthy immune system. An extended cleanse will even help strengthen your immune system to prevent illness in the future. We wish you a speedy recovery.

 

26) Can I put my child on Urban Remedy Indonesia Cleanse?

Children should not do any type of juice cleanse or fast while they are still growing but they can drink these juices as a supplement. That said, Urban Remedy Indonesia cleanse is an amazing addition to any diet. Cold pressed juice is always a better alternative to soda. While we do not have an age requirement on consuming our juice products on their own, we insist that our cleanses only be used by individuals that are 18 years or older

27) Won’t this slow my metabolism?

Yes and no. If your metabolism is fast right now, chances are it will slow a little as you are not taking in as much energy. This also depends on your body - everyone is different. On the other hand, if you have a slow metabolism, clearing out toxins opens up channels so your body functions more efficiently.

28) Can I do Urban Remedy Indonesia cleanse if I am lactose intolerant?

YES!!! There are absolutely NO animal products in our juice.

29) Can I do Urban Remedy Indonesia cleanse if I have diabetes?

There are many types of diabetes. Usually, regardless of the type, the answer to this is NO because of the amount of sugar in the fruit juice, but you should always check with your doctor first.

30) Where do I get my daily protein requirements?

The amount of protein available in both of our greens juices and our almond milk are enough to meet above and beyond our bodies' daily protein requirement as many of our juices contain vegetables that are high in protein. 

31) Shouldn’t I have fiber? Should I take fiber supplements?

Normally, fiber is great for moving things through your system, but when the body must separate out juice from fiber, there is an energy expenditure there that is significant. For our purposes, we want to reduce this burden as much as possible so that we can give the body and digestive tract a break from having to break down solid food – so that the saved energy can be transferred to cleansing processes. When you save energy in one department you can expend it somewhere else.

32) I'm very allergic to almonds– do you have a replacement?

Yes –We do cater to almonds allergies. You will receive your preferable juice that is available in your detox package.

33) I have a gluten allergy, can I do it?

Absolutely! We are gluten free. In fact there is nothing added to our juice but juice! NO additives and 100% vegan.

 

 

34) Why does the juice sometimes look or taste slightly different?

Our juices are all handcrafted in individual batches, so variations may occur at times.

35) Isn't it true that our bodies are capable of cleansing naturally? If so, why should I partake in the cleansing trend?

It is definitely true to say that our bodies cleanse naturally and constantly. We like to think of our cleanse program as an occasional way to pause and reflect from hectic normal life routines—and to take a dietary choice with us. Historically cleansing was a way to bring balance back into people's lives. So, while it is only being incorporated into dietary practices in the past few years by the masses, cleansing is certainly not a trend.
