Long description:

For hundreds of years, our ancient ancestors have been forced to fast, due to harsh environmental conditions and a lack of food and fire. Ironically these long periods without sustenance had some serious health benefits for our bony brethren.

Not eating allowed their bodies to redirect energy away from digestion to make better use of it in repairing damaged muscle and organ tissue so that they could move more quickly and their hearts could more efficiently pump oxygen. It also heightened their senses, so that they could more easily sniff out roots and fruit and see prey. Basically, fasting makes you stronger as your body throws you into survival mode.

Nowadays we have slightly more sophisticated ways of guiding our bodies into this healing state of deprivation: planned and regulated fasting.

To unlock these healing benefits, in a way that's better suited to winter than our regular juice fasts, Nourish'd have designed the Gut Healing Winter Warmth Cleanse.

This program is comprised of two gut-healing broths, one activated charcoal rose elixir to draw toxins from the digestive tract, a hot-shot to kick-start your digestive system in the morning, three specially blended medicinal teas per day, designed by us in collaboration with Aether Herbalist and Apothecaryto support your cleanse experience, and two heart-warming soups to provide the nourishment and energy your body needs in colder weather.

First made famous by Gwyneth Paltrow's brand Goop, soup cleansing has since become popular all over the world delivering astounding results to many of those who try it. And so we're super excited to be able to finally offer Capetonians the opportunity to attempt soup-cleansing in a convenient and curated way.

      Collection and Delivery

      All juices will be ready to collect by 9am and must be collected before 10am. Please understand that we are extremely busy in the mornings and we really appreciate it when you collect before the mad rush hits.

      • Deliveries will be made between 8 and 10am.
      • For the longer cleanses, juices must be collected every 3 days, as we don’t use any preservatives. Doing things this way also means that the juices don’t oxidize as much, ensuring maximum nutritional integrity.
      • Please bring your own bag with which to collect the juices.
      • It is imperative that you begin the cleanse on the day it is collected/delivered, as the juices contain no preservatives and will go off if left in the fridge for more than 2-days.

        Bottles and Recycling

        Lockdown has been operationally and financially tough for us in many ways, and one of the big obstacles has been our bottles.

        We weren’t able to get glass for a long time, and our bottle printers are still closed. We have been unable to accept bottle returns due to the contamination risk this poses. Supplier costs have been increasing as the rand weakens and transport routes become longer and more challenging to navigate.

        Glass bottles have always been at the heart of Nourish’d, but our current financial situation demanded a change. SO we’ve found the next best option: Biodegradable containers with recyclable lids, which are the containers you will have likely received.

        These break down in 6-weeks in a commercial composting facility (or well-maintained home compost), and the lid is PET recyclable.

        We've also reduced the cost of all cleanses to account for the lack of deposit normally paid on glass - so there is a silver lining.

            I have really enjoyed the broth cleanse, am on the last day and was anticipating some cravings etc with the cold. But I have not felt hungry, I enjoyed all of the soup tastes and would very much recommend it. Will definitely do it again.

            Gut Healing Broth cleanse

            This was a particularly challenging cleanse. Perhaps because my taste buds struggled with the broccoli and pumpkin broths. It was still a positive experience with mind and body being much more in sync after the fifth day. Perhaps offering a wider choice of broths? Price-wise it was a bit steep for what I got, and the tea was randomly replaced with rooibos.
