organic-roots-detox-flush-juice Organic Roots, we prioritize achieving and maintaining health in the most wholistic way possible. This includes eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, getting ample exercise, reducing stress and prioritizing rest and sleep, as well as working with your body to eat the best for your personal health and digestive needs. For many people, this includes juicing.

Our Juice Bar uses only USDA Organic  fruits and vegetables because we believe in the Organic difference. Juicing often times uses more produce than eating, which means if you’re not using organic produce, you’re also getting plenty of harmful pesticides along with your fruits and veggies. No thanks!

Whether you’re juicing at home, or getting your drink to go at our Juice Bar in store, you can always be sure that the produce or juice you purchase from Organic Roots is USDA Organic!

 

What are the benefits of Juicing?

Simply put, juicing extracts nutrients from fruits and vegetables and allows your body to absorb them quicker than if you were to eat those items. This can be very helpful if you have nutrient deficiencies or have taken ill and need to get as much nutrition into your body the easiest way possible. Because of the lack of fiber in juice, your body doesn’t need to break down the food in order to absorb the nutrients, which is why often times people say they instantly have energy or feel good after drinking a juice.

Things to Remember when Juicing 

For the same reason juicing is a great option for your diet is also why you need to be mindful of what you’re juicing and how much. Your body need fiber, so only drinking juice for long periods of time isn’t a great way to live a healthy balanced life — it is important to eat your veggies as well as juice! A lot of people choose to get our Super Smoothies at the Juice Bar, which have not only frozen fruit but raw veggies blended up so that they get fiber along with their nutrients. Juicing with a lot of fruit can also raise your blood sugar, so it’s important to focus of leafy green vegetables when juicing, and only add a bit of fruit for flavor.

What Should I Juice?

Now that we got that out of the way, onto the fun part. What should you be juicing? Some of our absolute favorites and juice “staples” are things like celery, cucumber, and carrots. This is because they all have a high water content so they work great for bases in juices, and are chock full of benefits. Celery is excellent for gut health, helping you easily break down the food you eat, especially protein. Cucumber is incredibly alkalizing and hydrating, reducing acidity in your body and relieving aliments like heartburn and reflux. Carrots are a nutrition powerhouse, with high amounts of vitamin A, K, C, and potassium.

After your base, it’s time to add some nutrient dense, low sugar veggies to round out your juice and make sure you’re getting the best nutrients for your body. Kale is loaded with Vitamin A, omega-3s and omega-6s, and can help reduce free radicals in the skin and help reduce the aging process. Spinach is high in antioxidants and can help lower blood pressure. Parsley is rich in chlorophyll, which can help raise red blood cells, boosting your immunity. Collard greens  are packed with Vitamin C Vitamin E, iron and magnesium.

To top off your juice and give it a BOOST, we recommend adding ginger, lemon, or turmeric. Ginger is high in antioxidants and can aid in digestive issues. Lemons are incredibly alkaline, and are loaded with Vitamin C. Turmeric has an active ingredient of curcumin which is incredibly anti inflammatory and can help ease pain and stress.
