When Jessica “Barbie” Arsolon joined a beauty contest last year, she needed to lose 10 pounds but she didn’t want to go on a crash diet. She started juicing but unlike the usual method of taking in liquids without any solids, she would eat salads and ocassionally, a piece of salted crackers.
Arsolon, a nursing graduate who took subjects in nutrition and diet, lost the 10 lbs in two weeks. This success story was the inspiration for Sexy Detox juices, a partnership between Arsolon and lawyer Reginald Tayag.
“I had high cholesterol and blood pressure levels. I started drinking fresh juice made from fresh fruits and vegetables because of this,” says Tayag, who is into corporate law, land acquisition and litigation.
Since he started juicing, Tayag’s cholesterol and blood pressure levels have been normal without any maintenance medication. He is also less sluggish.
Arsolon and Tayag did extensive research on juicing. They also consulted dietitians and nutritionists to learn about the best combinations for detoxification. Sexy Detox was officially launched in November 2013.
The Sexy Detox Diet program combines the elements of Master Cleanse and South Beach Diet. The program has three phases. During the Ease-in phase, the person is encouraged to eat only fresh fruits and vegetables and eliminate processed food from the diet. This phase will help the body get used to eating less to prepare for the next stage. During the Strict Juice phase, solid food is replaced with fresh juices that will deliver micronutrients quickly to the bloodstream. During the Ease-out stage, the person can supplement the juice diet with fresh fruits and vegetables before they start eating “regular food.”
The bestseller is the three-day detoxification kit. It contains 15 bottles of juices, two detox teabags and a Sexy Detox Diet instruction manual. Sexy Detox recommends five bottles every day as meal replacements for breakfast, morning snack, lunch, afternoon snack and dinner.
There are five kinds of juices, which Tayag calls “Fab Five.” Grape Jolt is helpful for rheumatism, indigestion, muscle and nerve stimulation, high/low blood and anxiety. Citrus Sunshine is helpful for stabilizing uric acid levels, improving liver functions, prevention of cancer and heart problems. Sexy Lemon addresses anemia, constipation, coughs and colds, gout and weight loss. Fast Red is for fatigue, bladder problems, circulatory weaknesses, the kidney, skin problems, asthma and ulcer. Hulk Green is helpful for hypertension, improving kidney functions, circulatory weaknesses, asthma and skin problems.
Sexy Detox’s regular blends are juiced using Hurom juicers. They use combinations of fresh fruits and vegetables, including apples, lemons, oranges, grapes, beets, celery, carrot, cucumber, ginger and spinach. Sexy Detox also has premium blends, which include combinations made from almond, kiwi, strawberry and cocoa. The premium flavors are Almond Delight, Cocoa Surprise, Kiwi Magic, Milky Strawberry and Strawberry Chill. One can also order special flavors.
“The juices are rich in phytochemicals and enzymes. Phytochemicals help boost the immune system while enzymes are needed for the body to digest food and absorb the nutrients from the food we eat,” says Tayag.
Arsolon says they encourage their clients to drink a lot of water in order to help aid constipation and maximize the detoxifying effects of the juices.
The prices are very reasonable. The regular blend costs less than P200 per bottle while the premium blend is priced at P218 per bottle.
Sexy Detox will open the first branch of its Sexy Detox Juice Lounge at the fourth level of SM Megamall near Fitness First. They will serve not only fresh juices but also salads.
