Jus By Julie Review

Overall Rating: 3.5 STARS

About Jus by Julie:

“As a certified nutritionist, what I’ve drawn from studying many theories on diets and health is that our bodies need a great amount of greens to function at peak capacity. Greens are not normally our first choice of food, thus making it hard to get the daily requirement of nutrients and fiber from just three meals a day. To achieve the proper health goals, I began to make green smoothies for my husband and myself to drink first thing every morning.

My health conscious family joined in on the juice trend and we soon discovered from the amazing effects that this was practically a miracle in a bottle. The smoothies were able to provide our bodies with the much needed fiber, while taming our sugar cravings and giving us tons of energy. I felt leaner almost instantly, and amazingly my husband’s cholesterol went down 70 points! When I went to school to study nutrition the first thing I said was that even if I could only make my family healthier I would feel accomplished.

Ever since then I began sharing my experiences with friends and tons of community members who all wanted in on this wonder drink. As word spread I began waking up at four in the morning to blend and prepare all the smoothie orders .From there on, I can proudly say that smoothie-making has grown into a flourishing 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, and contain a vast array of vitamins and nutrients.

Now that my smoothies are transforming people’s lives, I strongly feel that I’ve found my calling. Our company has spread to four locations, and is still growing alongside the demand of JUS.

My Thoughts:

I had such a pleasant interaction with Jus by Julie and was impressed by how unique and vibrant their blends are. I love fresh juices and believe they are one of the very best ways to ingest a large amount of nutrients at once.

My two favorite things about these juices are:

-They taste fresh and delicious!

-They are blended, not juiced. This is important because you get some of the fruit/veggie fiber in the drink.

The blends that I enjoyed the most were Liquid Summer, Day Glow and Spicy Pome-Nade. I love both of the green drinks, since they are nutrient powerhouses–but they are not quite as yummy as the others.

I thoroughly enjoyed trying these juices–I had one of them a day for 5 days and always looked forward to drinking the next one. I felt refreshed and light on my feet after each juice, too. Nothing heavy to digest!

In regards to organic, I learned this about these juices:

They are not organic but all our produce is sourced within the United States. All our juices are kosher as well which means we clean all of our produce very well in order to comply with strict kosher laws, and most of the pesticides are washed off as a result of this.”

Because they are not organic, I am not giving these juices my highest rating. I do applaud the kosher efforts, though. If these juices were organic, I would be a regular customer of the Liquid Summer juice, for sure!

One thought on “Jus By Julie Review”

  1. I WAS SO EXCITED TO START THIS JUICE CLEANSE…………..

    I’ve been a long-time juicer. I buy organic, am Vegan and have felt the healthiest ever since living this lifestyle. I juice twice a day – 32oz each – low sugar using the 80/10/10 rule: 80% Greens, 10% Fruit, 10% nuts, grains, flax, chia….

    One thing I’ve never done is purchased a “Commercial Cleanse.” I read various reviews, and sought out Groupon, Living Social for the best reviews and prices. Jus by Julie seemed to be the best choice.

    Ordering was easy, but I had no choice in choosing the juices that I would be drinking. I chose the 3-day cleanse and because of the great deal, ordered two of them because shipping was free and I live in California. I would have one for now and one for later.

    My juices came on time, and even with overnight shipping, the box was wet and the juices moderately cool. The cold packs where completely thawed..

    Here’s what I received: Morning Glory, Spicy Lemonade, Sweet Spin, Acai Blend, Choco-Nana, and X-Treme Greens.

    I started my cleanse at 10:00 am with Morning Glory and it was great. I love kale and spinach. I make 32 oz of Joe Cross’ “Joe’s Mean Green” every day, so greens are my favorite. 12g sugar

    Spicy Lemonade was so sour I couldn’t finish it (lemon, maple syrup, cayenne pepper and H2O). 20g sugar

    Sweet Spin was Delish! More kale, spinach with fruit added in. 22g sugar

    Acai Blend: The juice was bad. I got no further than 1/3 and was in the bathroom vomiting. I felt very sick, lay down and took a nap. I felt lousy for the rest of the evening and stayed in bed. 22g sugar

    Choco-Nana was good: Chocolate, banana, strawberries and H2O 16 g sugar

    X-Treme Greens finished out the night: I could drink this all day. Everyone writes a pretty bad review of this one, but if you don’t juice on a regular basis AND with kale, spinach, cucumbers, celery – than you’re not juicing to its full potential. 16 g sugar.

    DAY 1 = Total Protein: 14 g, Total Fiber: 14g, Total Sugar: 108g

    I bought liquid candy!

    I got the same set for all three days. I have a Blueberry Acai that I make at home and I’m fine when I drink it. I tried “Julie’s” Acai Blend – just a sip and threw it away. Something’s definitely wrong with mine. Also, the Spicy Lemonade isn’t supposed to be sour! I tossed all of them – even the ones in the freezer. On day two and three I drank 4 of their juices and had to make two of mine – mine saved me – organic, fresh, no added H2O and replenished the energy I lost from day one. I did stay in bed for the most of day 2 and 3.

    I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PROGRAM.

    1) Each bottle is deceiving: We drink ONE bottle, but there are TWO servings in each bottle, so double the sugar!
    2) There is more fruit than greens.
    3) More people get sick than I’ve ever seen, judging from the reviews. Those living in NY have problems getting “CLEAN” products. Those of us in California seem to have major problems.

    Here are my lessons:

    1) Try your own cleanse or one close to home!
    2) Make sure it’s organic, pure juice without water added water and not blended.
    3) If they arrive anything other than frozen, be wary.
    4) I’ll stick to my regular juicing, hang out at the farmers market, save money and buy my fruits and veggies from CALIFORNIA!
    5) Buy your own juicer – you can get a great one for $100.00 with a 3-year warranty and the pulp will be dry. Use it till it dies, then if you feel the need to go “high end” – go for it.
    6) This was an expensive lesson to learn!

    Last by not least – If it sounds too good to be true – it usually is!
