ABOUT THE DETOX

What is Modern Alkeme?

Modern Alkeme is an everyday detox for everyday life. It packs 13 of earth’s most potent detoxifiers into one little black bottle to help free your body of unwanted toxins that build up every day - for a new, spicy you.

What makes Modern Alkeme better than other cleanses?

Unlike other detox drinks and cleanses, Modern Alkeme is an easy, everyday detox. No fasting. Eat whatever you want. No intense rules and regiments. Just drink one bottle a day, whenever. No BS. 13 of the earth’s most potent detoxifiers are packed into every bottle. Plus, we’re made with matcha green tea while other cleanses are made mostly with fruits and veggies.
Matcha is something special. It’s made by grinding the entire tea leaf, which allows it to retain high concentrations of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and fibers. In fact, no other fruit or vegetable in the world provides more antioxidants than matcha. And the 13 detoxifying herbs in our drink are a force to be reckoned with. From wakame & red clover to reishi mushroom, milk thistle, honey and more, toxins don’t stand a chance.

Why should I use Modern Alkeme?

We absorb toxins when we eat, when we drink, when we clean our house, even when we step outside. It’s pretty darn hard to avoid all the toxins that come with modern day life. That’s where Modern Alkeme comes in. When we’re healthy, our bodies naturally work hard to rid our system of toxins. Modern Alkeme gives your body that little extra boost every day to help make sure your body is free, clean and clear of toxins.

Here’s a list of toxins you may not realize you encounter every day:

  • Yummy (but not so healthy) foods, like burgers, brats & martinis
  • Air (pollution)
  • Makeup
  • Non-stick cookware
  • Cleaning products
  • Plastics
  • Dry cleaned clothing
  • Stress & negative thoughts
Does it really work?

We think so! Our clearing tonic is a modern-day remix of a time-tested ancient Japanese elixir that’s been around for generations. It is a powerful arrangement of 13 of the earth’s most potent detoxifiers, each specially selected to help play a specific role in the clearing process:

  • PREPS the body for clearing by stimulating blood flow: ceremonial grade matcha green tea, honey
  • TARGETS and gathers toxins: lemon juice & rind, coconut vinegar
  • CLEARS the body of unwanted toxins: ginger, ghost pepper, ginseng, burdock, red clover, dandelion, uva ursi, milk thistle, sicklepod, wakame
  • RESTORES, re-hydrates and boosts immune system: raw coconut water, reishi mushroom
Besides clearing the body of toxins, what are the other benefits of Modern Alkeme?

You have no idea just how good you can feel when you are free of toxins. Detoxifying your system is said to give you: more energy, healthier hair and nails, radiant skin, mental clarity, restful sleep and more mojo and energy.

What does Modern Alkeme taste like?

Wakame seaweed + red clover + matcha + ghost pepper + more?! We can see why you’re curious what we taste like. Close your eyes and imagine a deliciously refreshing matcha green tea with a pop of ginger, a hint of spicy from the ghost pepper and natural sweetness from flowers & honey. And yes,

Modern Alkeme Spicy Matcha is the one and only flavor we’ve got… because why mess with a tried and true ancient Japanese recipe that’s been around & working for generations.

How do you use it?

Easy! Just drink 1 bottle daily, morning, noon or night, whatever it best for you.

How much does it cost?

We cost between $3 and $4 per bottle for 13 of the earth’s most potent detoxifiers beautifully arranged to rid your body of daily toxic buildup.

Ingredients

What is Modern Alkeme made of?

Modern Alkeme a daily detox drink made with matcha green tea and some of the earth’s most potent detoxifying herbs and ingredients. Check out our complete list of nutritionals and ingredients here.

What is Matcha and what are the benefits?

Matcha green tea is said to be an excellent oxygen carrier and the more oxygen you have flowing through your bloodstream, the easier it is for your liver to purge your body of poisons. It’s also what gives our drink it’s distinct green color.

What is Ghost Pepper and what are the benefits?

Good circulation is key to detoxing and spicy peppers have been known to stimulate circulation and neutralize acidity. Plus, the hotter the pepper, the more fat it burns. Lucky us, because ghost pepper is the hot, hot, hottest pepper there is. It’s also what gives our drink it’s distinct, fiery flavor!

What’s Wakame and what are the benefits?

This nutrient-rich saltwater seaweed may protect against toxins from environmental and transportation pollution. It is known for binding to heavy metals, like lead, and radioactive substances and then working to remove them from your body.

What is Lemon and what are the benefits?

Lemon wakes your body up and jump-starts the digestive tract with enzymatic processes that help to breakdown food.

What is Milk Thistle and what are the benefits?

Aka the ‘it’ herb for liver detoxing. It regenerates liver cells, provides vital nutrients to the liver and helps it to expel toxins and waste, the perfect combination for healthy digestion. And no milk thistle has nothing to do with milk ;)

What’s Uva Ursi and what are the benefits?

This powerful herb specializes in cleaning your kidneys. It contains arbutin, a natural compound that passes through the kidneys, encouraging harmful organisms, mineral deposits, germs and toxins to pass out of the kidneys.

What is Sicklepod and what are the benefits?

Rich in fiber, naturally light laxative works to keep your colon clean and clear. It expels internal toxins that accumulate from processed foods & removes that yucky gunk that collects along your intestinal walls so everything continues to run smoothly, if you know what we mean.

What is Burdock root and what are the benefits?

Described as the “blood purifier”, burdock root has active ingredients believed to clear the bloodstream of heavy metals and toxins for improved whole body health.

What is Dandelion and what are the benefits?

Loaded with calcium, potassium, zinc and vitamins a through d as well as other natural, health-promoting compounds, this wild edible enhances the regenerative capabilities of the liver, nourishes bones and joins and stimulates urinary function to promote cleansing.

What is Red Clover and what are the benefits?

This powerful wildflower helps break down toxins that reside in tissue and has the ability to carry waste right out of the bloodstream by stimulating sweat & pushing toxins out through the skin.

What is Ginseng and what are the benefits?

A healthy, happy liver is key to detoxing & ginseng is your liver’s BFF, making sure your liver has all the nutrients it needs to continue to function at its best.

What is Coconut Vinegar and what are the benefits?

Naturally fermented and made from the sap of coconut trees, coconut vinegar is trending as ‘the new apple cider vinegar’. It’s got all the same benefits of acv – prevents indigestion & aids in weight loss – but with fewer calories and a much more tolerable taste and smell. Plus, it has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, which help fight illness and infections.

What is Ginger and what are the benefits?

Ginger’s got it going on. Not only is it packed with powerful protein-digesting enzymes that help stimulate the emptying of your stomach, but it also replaces toxins with nutrients your body needs so you can continue to operate at an optimal level.

What is Reishi and what are the benefits?

This fascinating fungus can both regulate and stimulate your immune system, depending on what your body needs. If you have an overactive immune system, like in autoimmune disease, the reishi mushroom will help to take that response down, and if you have an under-active immune system, it will help boost you up. Whatever the case, it brings you back into balance.

What is Coconut Water and what are the benefits?

Detoxing can dehydrate your body. Coconut water is rich with electrolytes & includes 15 times more potassium than any other sports drinks, keeping you hydrated and healthy.

Claims and Safety

Are there any unpleasant side effects?

We don’t use any harsh laxatives in Modern Alkeme so although the effects of this cleanse are fast-acting in that they are easily absorbed by your digestive system, you will not experience a quick movement of your bowels by drinking it. That said, if you do experience any negative side effects or anything out of the normal when drinking Modern Alkeme, we recommend that you stop using it immediately and dial up your doc with any questions or concerns before drinking it again.

Are you organic, GMO free, vegan, etc?

Modern Alkeme is made with only organic and GMO-free ingredients. We are naturally gluten-free and dairy-free too. Plus, each bottle contains only 35 calories and 9 grams of sugar!
We are not certified kosher just yet or vegan because our product contains raw honey.

Is Modern Alkeme pasteurized?

Modern Alkeme is never heated. It is made using a high-pressure process (HPP) that protects vitamins, enzymes and nutrients, while eliminating bacteria and pathogens, like salmonella, and e. Coli.

Is your product safe to drink when pregnant?

We always recommend that you ask your doctor for advice to make sure you are getting recommendation specific to your very unique situation. You should know that Modern Alkeme is are pasteurized using high pressure processing (HPP) – not traditional heat pasteurization – and contains raw honey, which is typically not recommended for pregnant women and children under 12 months old.

I’m diabetic, can I drink Modern Alkeme?

Modern Alkeme has only 9 grams of sugar, but if you’re diabetic, you should definitely consult your doctor before enjoying a bottle.

Does your product contain caffeine?

Yes. Matcha is a type of green tea, and green tea contains caffeine. When drinking matcha, whole tea leaves are consumed (not just the steep as with other teas), providing 4 to 6 hours of mild steady energy. Matcha is both a stimulant and a relaxant, perfect for focusing on work, meditation, exercise or play.

Will I lose weight?

This is a light and gentle nutritional cleanse designed to give your digestive system a rest and therefore allow your body to eliminate toxins. It was not designed specifically for weight loss, although that could happen.

Why are your products not in glass?

We source the highest quality, clean recyclable and reusable pet 1 bottles instead of glass because we use high pressure processing (HPP). HPP is a low temperature and high pressure (think: shattered glass) technology that retains the freshness of temple turmeric while preserving our beverages’ delicate nutritional profile. Other beverages that are in glass must use traditional “heat” pasteurization, which can kill delicate vitamins and enzymes.

How long do your drinks last?

To help retain the freshness of our premium ingredients, we use a process called high pressure processing (HPP). HPP is a no-heat pasteurization process that maintains the optimal nutritional qualities of all our ingredients. Our juices typically last up to 60 days. Please refer to the expiration date on the side of the bottle to know exactly how much time you have to drink your Modern Alkeme.

Can I drink Modern Alkeme after the expiration date?

We really don’t recommend drinking Modern Alkeme after the product has expired.

Why does your juice separate?

Without the use of artificial additives (which we don’t use), separation naturally occurs. Just give the bottle a little shake, shake, shake & enjoy!

Can you freeze Modern Alkeme?

You can, just keep this in mind: we fill our bottles to the top and typically when you freeze liquids, expansion occurs, so consider putting your juice into a larger container.
