The workers of Pure Juice Detox bottle the nutritious ambrosia, pack it up, and send it home with clients, who purge their bodies of toxins with daily regimens of these raw-plant cocktails. The staff packages the juices in ready-to-go three-, five-, and eight-day menus, handily numbering each bottle so customers know which juice is which.
