JUS By Julie Review & Giveaway {CLOSED}

Juice cleansing has been a hot topic lately… and for good reason! The benefits of juice cleansing (or simply adding fresh juice to a healthy lifestyle) are endless. Juicing helps your body get rid of toxins, rebalance & reboot. Today I want to share with you JUS By Julie, a cleanse designed to rid your body of impurities through a series of specially formulated drinks. It's a healthy obsession!
Julie explains why she started JUS By Julie:
As a certified nutritionist, what I've drawn from studying many theories on diets and health is; our bodies need a lot of greens to function at peak capacity. Though greens aren’t normally our first choice of food, thus it's hard to get the daily requirement of fiber from just three meals and a few snacks. To achieve that healthy goal, I began to make green smoothies for my husband and me to drink first thing in the morning. 

My health conscious family joined in on the juice, and soon we discovered that this was practically a miracle in a bottle as the effects were incredible. The smoothie provided all that much needed fiber, it was able to tame our sugar cravings, and it gave us a lot of energy. I felt leaner almost instantly, and amazingly my husband's cholesterol went down 70 points! When I went back to school three years ago to study nutrition, I said that if only I could make my own family healthier I would feel accomplished. 

Since, I’ve been sharing my experiences with friends and beyond, who all wanted in on this wonder drink. I started to get up at four in the morning to blend and prepare these smoothies, and then before I knew it word spread and people were calling me for juice. From there on, smoothie-making has grown into a family business. 

JUS, derived from French roots, means with its own juice. Just like its name, JUS is an all-natural juice from fruits and vegetables, nothing more, nothing less. All JUSes are made fresh, enriching the body full of vital vitamins and nutrients. 
The juices are numbered on the side which makes it easy to drink in the recommended order! 
I love that JUS is blended, not pressed. They explain, "When the nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables are blended, the whole product is included. It is the most nutritious JUS you can drink, as it provides all the natural vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and antioxidants found in the raw ingredients. The skin, meat, and all the juice of the produce are combined with the natural fiber contained inside to aid in optimal digestion"

A three day JUS cleanse retails for $150 dollars and the juices can also be purchased separately for $8/each. These juices should be enjoyed within 3 days as they are not pasteurized and no preservatives are added. 
JUS offers many delicious flavors: Morning Glory, Acai Blend, Chia Berry, Dr. Green, The Beet of Apples, All Green Everything, Nana Berries, Sweet Spin, Liquid Summer, Pine-apple Mint, Sweet Escape, Simple Green, Day Glow, X-Treme Greens, Choco-Nana, Island Coconut, Coconut Water, Not So Chunky, Java Jus, Almond Breeze, Spicy Lemonade & Spicy Pome-Nade.
The bolded flavors are the JUSes that were included in my cleanse. 

JUS By Julie is certified kosher, however it is NOT certified organic, serious bummer. I will continue with my thoughts on that in a minute. My juices were shipped overnight and delivered by 11am the following day. I loved the packaging and the reusable, insulated bag is perfect for future shopping trips!

I drank 6 JUSes today and plan on continuing with the cleanse. I will be adding some fresh fruit & veggies to help me stay satisfied. I already feel lighter and my digestive system is thanking me! If juice cleanses are not your thing, JUS By Julie is a perfect addition to a healthy lifestyle!

I especially loved the Sweet Spin (spinach, kale, pineapple, banana, mango), Choco-Nana (chocolate, banana, strawberries ~ this literally tastes like a chocolate milk shake! YUM!), Acai Blend (acai berries, strawberries, banana), and Chia Berry (strawberries, chia seeds, lemon, pomegranate). My least favorites were the Morning Glory (romaine, celery, spinach, apple, banana, strawberry) and Spicy Lemonade. I'm not a fan of spicy things, but I tolerated it for my metabolisms sake ;) Chugging the Morning Glory was not bad, just not something I'd like to sip on. It's definitely worth chugging for the amount of nutrients they pack in! I love drinking my greens! 

The only negative for me is that JUS is not organic. I really prefer blending organic produce, that way you know there is no pesticides, GMOs, or other nasties in the produce. I know organic certification is expensive and sourcing organic produce can be difficult… but it is so, SO worth it!  
I really, really hope JUS considers going organic in the future! 
Jus By Julie also uses plastic containers which is a turn off… I would much prefer to be able to reuse the glass. 

This is what one day of juices looks like:
