is agave a healthy sweetener?
RAW AGAVE is a superb all natural sweetener derived from a cactus plant. our food guru FRED BISCI enjoys our raw agave sweetened foods and smoothies.
in our experience most “anti-agavists” are pontificating purist principles but are not purists themselves. moreover, they are not teaching the science of nutrition correctly.
most of us are not PURISTS and want to enjoy something sweet without a guilty conscience. the best source of something sweet is whole fruit in its raw form. raw agave is a concentrated sweetener but it is in fact low glycemic and is not something to be avoided. use moderately.
- RAW AGAVE is low glycemic.
- MAPLE SYRUP is not raw.
- STEVIA tastes like robitusson.
- COCONUT PALM SUGAR tastes like a foot.
- WHITE and BROWN refined sugars are rank poison.
the best sweeteners are no sweeteners at all. whole raw fruits such as apple or dates are great sweeteners. the raw sweeteners in moderation are all fine. even for diabetics.
STOP BASHING AGAVE!
*fred bisci has a PHD in nutrition and has been 100% raw for over 43 years.
is there any value in drinking alkaline water?
the controversy is over whether drinking alkalized water has any proven benefits.
the human body works to maintain homeostasis and a ph balance of approximately 7.2 no matter what you eat drink or smoke or choke. acidic diets and toxins put stress on the homeostasic process. eventually with your body overcomes to the stress and loses the battle. weakness, illness, disease in sue. in my opinion drinking clean pure drinking over a ph balance equal to the blood releaves stress on the body’s healing mechanism.
not the ph balance referred to is that of the blood and can only be detected through a blood test and not urine or saliva testing.
the blood maintains a ph balance of 7.2 or 7.3 but the cells may be acidic.
The pH of the human body fluctuates continually. The food and diet one ingests affects the body’s pH. Through diet one must try to balance the body’s pH. This is easily done when one understands that certain foods are acid forming while others are alkalizing within the body. Acid forming foods create a condition known as acidosis. When this happens the alkaline reserves of the body are depleted during the process to neutralize the excessive acids. This will leave the body in a less than normal condition. This weakened state will then lead to the onset of many diseases. There is a concept called Autotoxication which points to this alkalinity/acidity imbalance as the root cause for all disease which allows acid to accumulate within the body. An acidic environment is ideal for many pathogens and diseases to thrive in. does the order of juices matter in the cleanse? read more
why are institutions so resistant to real nutritional science?
simple answer: money.
the FDA, the USDA and the AMA will have served the american public’s health to perfection when they state scientific facts about the adverse health effects of processed foods and require warning labels on all commercially sold foods.
1. “warning, all processed foods seriously affect human health, weaken the immune system and are eventually responsible for many common diseases plaguing our country today.”
2. “this product contains dairy derived from a cow. cow’s milk stimulates growth in the calf to build a body weight from 60 lbs up to 2,000 lbs in 12 months. cow’s milk is highly inflammatory to the human body and may cause the increased secretion of mucus as systemic defense. inflammation is the precursor to many diseases. increased mucus is a wonderful breeding ground for bacteria. enjoy!”
the science of nutrition today is a maze of partial truths established in my opinion by individuals with vast knowledge in abstract sciences. sciences that are relative to the best available knowledge at the time. we are a culture obsessed with calories. and we have been conditioned to hunt for protein with zero knowledge of what protein is, what the best sources are, and what the harmful effects are of taking in too much.
with the technologies available today we could feed all of the world nourishing foods with a lot less effort than we are taught to believe. the businesses of today do not stand to profit from this science. we are eating too many grains and processed foods that make us sick and require us to eat far more calories than needed to survive.
there are also tremendous forces working on these institutions which arise from people addictions to foods.
profits are a driving force behind the mass confusion of food and simple nourishment. there are things that our protective governmental agencies will simple never say. industries hide behind the “bad guy science” (in other words the science that simple leaves out the truth) and we the good guys are simply called quacks.
i’m not a quack. i promote vegetables and fruit. i don’t push vitamins or energy healing crystals. i practice what i preach. i’m not against medicine. i’m also very excited about new sciences. i believe that we have more knowledge today than ever before and used correctly we will usher in the new era of health. the foundation of my teachings is that people need to leave out all processed foods. the next steps to be taken are easy.
ceo and founder of juice press
More than a decade ago, the U.S. Department of Agriculture created a powerful and enduring icon – the Food Guide Pyramid. This simple illustration conveyed in a flash what the USDA SAID were the elements of a healthy diet. The Pyramid was taught in schools, appeared in countless media articles and brochures, and was plastered on cereal boxes and food labels.
Tragically, the information embodied in this pyramid didn’t point the way to healthy eating. Why not? Its blueprint was based on shaky scientific evidence, and it barely changed over the years to reflect major advances in our understanding of the connection between diet and health.
With much fanfare, the USDA recently retired the old Food Guide Pyramid and replaced it with MyPyramid, a new symbol and “interactive food guidance system.” The new symbol is basically the old Pyramid turned on its side.
The good news is that this dismantles and buries the flawed Pyramid. The bad news is that the new symbol doesn’t convey enough information to help you make informed choices about your diet and long-term health. And it continues to recommend foods that aren’t essential to good health, and may even be detrimental in the quantities included in MyPyramid.
As an alternative to the USDA’s flawed pyramid, faculty members in the Harvard School of Public Health built the Healthy Eating Pyramid. It resembles the USDA’s in shape only. The Healthy Eating Pyramid takes into consideration, and puts into perspective, the wealth of research conducted during the last ten years that has reshaped the definition of healthy eating.
PYRAMID BUILDING: In the children’s book Who Built the Pyramid?, different people take credit for building the once-grand pyramid of Senwosret. King Senwosret, of course, claims the honor. But so does his architect, the quarry master, the stonecutters, slaves, and the boys who carried water to the workers.
The USDA’s MyPyramid also had many builders. Some are obvious – USDA scientists, nutrition experts, staff members, and consultants. Others aren’t. Intense lobbying efforts from a variety of food industries also helped shape the pyramid.
In theory, the USDA pyramid should reflect the nutrition advice assembled in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. According to the USDA, the guidelines “provide authoritative advice for people two years and older about how good dietary habits can promote health and reduce risk for major chronic diseases.”
This document, which by law must be revised every five years, aims to offer sound nutrition advice that corresponds to the latest scientific research. The panel assembled to create the guidelines usually generates 100 or so pages of dense nutrition-speak. This document is translated into a reader friendly brochure aimed at helping the average person choose a balanced and healthy diet. Of far greater importance, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans set the standards for all federal nutrition programs, including the school lunch program, and helps determine what food products Americans buy. In other words, the guidelines influence how billions of dollars are spent each year. So even minor changes can hurt or help a food industry.
According to federal regulations, the panel that writes the dietary guidelines must include nutrition experts who are leaders in pediatrics, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and public health. Selecting the panelists is no easy task, and is subject to intense lobbying from organizations such as the National Dairy Council, United Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Association, Soft Drink Association, American Meat Institute, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, and Wheat Foods Council.
Released in early January, 2005, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2005 continues to reflect the tense interplay of science and the powerful food industry. Several of the new recommendations represent important steps in the right direction:
The new guidelines emphasize the importance of controlling weight, which was not adequately addressed in previous versions. And they continue to stress the importance of physical activity.
The recommendation on dietary fats makes a clear break from the past, when all fats were considered bad. The guidelines now emphasize that intake of trans fats should be as low as possible and that saturated fat should be limited. There is no longer an artificially low cap on fat intake. The latest advice recommends getting between 20% and 35% of daily calories from fats and recognizes the potential health benefits of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.
Instead of emphasizing “complex carbohydrates,” a term used in the past that has little biological meaning, the new guidelines urge Americans to limit sugar intake and they stress the benefits of whole grains.
Others remain mired in the past:
The guidelines suggest that it is fine to consume half of our grains as refined starch. That’s a shame, since refined starches behave like sugar. They add empty calories, have adverse metabolic effects, and increase the risks of diabetes and heart disease.
In terms of protein, the guidelines continue to lump together red meat, poultry, fish, and beans (including soy products). They ask us to judge these protein sources by their total fat content, “make choices that are lean, low-fat, or fat-free.” This ignores the evidence that these foods have different types of fats. It also overlooks mounting evidence that replacing red meat with a combination of fish, poultry, beans, and nuts offers numerous health benefits.
The recommendation to drink three glasses of low-fat milk or eat three servings of other dairy products per day to prevent osteoporosis is another step in the wrong direction. Of all the recommendations, this one represents the most radical change from current dietary patterns. Three glasses of low-fat milk add more than 300 calories a day. This is a real issue for the millions of Americans who are trying to control their weight. What’s more, millions of Americans are lactose intolerant, and even small amounts of milk or dairy products give them stomachaches, gas, or other problems. This recommendation ignores the lack of evidence for a link between consumption of dairy products and prevention of osteoporosis. It also ignores the possible increases in risk of ovarian cancer and prostate cancer associated with dairy products.
The USDA Pyramid Brick by Brick: Distilling nutrition advice into a pyramid was a stroke of genius. The shape immediately suggests that some foods are good and should be eaten often, and that others aren’t so good and should be eaten only occasionally. The layers represent major food groups that contribute to the total diet. MyPyramid tries to do this in an abstract way, and fails.
Six swaths of color sweep from the apex of MyPyramid to the base: orange for grains, green for vegetables, red for fruits, a teeny band of yellow for oils, blue for milk, and purple for meat and beans. Each stripe starts out as the same size, but they don’t end that way at the base. The widths suggest how much food a person should choose from each group. A band of stairs running up the side of the Pyramid, with a little stick figure chugging up it, serves as a reminder of the importance of physical activity.
MyPyramid contains no text. According to the USDA, it was “designed to be simple,” and details are at MyPyramid.gov. Unless you’ve taken the time to become familiar with the Pyramid, though, you have no idea what it means. Relying on the Web site to provide key information – like what the color stripes stand for and how many servings of each food group are recommended each day – guarantees that the millions of Americans without access to a computer or the Internet will have trouble getting these essential facts.
The USDA also chose not to put recommended numbers of servings on the new Pyramid because these differ from individual to individual according to weight, gender, activity level and age. Instead, it offers personalized Pyramids at MyPyramid.gov.
Building a Better Pyramid: If the only goal of the Food Guide Pyramid is to give us the best possible advice for healthy eating, then it should be grounded in the evidence and be independent of business.
Instead of waiting for this to happen, nutrition experts from the Harvard School of Public Health created the Healthy Eating Pyramid. It is based on the best available scientific evidence about the links between diet and health. This new pyramid fixes fundamental flaws in the USDA pyramid and offers sound information to help people make better choices about what to eat.

why am i farting up a storm if i’m cleaning up my diet or i’m on a juice cleanse?
there are a few possibilities here
1. when you dramatically clean up your diet or begin a juice cleanse your body will release stored endogenous material as part of its cleaning up process. gases, solids and liquids will find any means of egress.
2. most people don’t have enough flora to aid in digestion. food may not digest properly and thereby could lead to fermentation. fermentation creates gas.
3. your body in its infinite wisdom and adaptive capabilities adjusts to a toxic diet and even the consumption of drugs and alcohol.
people mistake negative detox symptoms with making dietary mistakes. avoiding processed foods and eating more raw foods is never a mistake. hang in there and persevere.
4. some people naturally have a hard time processing solid raw fruit and vegetables. some people have no problem at all. try blending or juicing fruit and vegetables to break apart the insoluble fiber that might cause gas.
how can an athlete build herculean muscle mass while eating super clean and healthy diet?
it’s not really possible! what i’ve observed is a lot of young powerful athletes at the beginning of a career path depending on massive loads of protein and calories to develop and maintain muscle and weight. they eat “performance” bars, drink powdered synthetic protein shakes, take engineered supplements, and so on. the consequences of these diets range from depression, aggression, susceptibility to injury, decrease sexual performance, frequent illness, irritability, slower recovery times, serious disease, and a shorter career than what should be possible! athletes that require an unnatural physique are depending on the toxicity of their diet to reach their goals. there’s little any one can do to change someone’s mind set if they are on this trajectory. to make a dramatic lifestyle change some people may need motivation such as illness or injury. hopefully, common sense is a better motivator than desperation.
red bull, energy bars, protein shakes, garbage, garbage, and more garbage are all disastrous. people don’t realize the mistakes they are making by using this stuff.
miraculously, the body is so tough that you can can demonstrate super human strength and performance even on a red bull and whey protein diet. these results are very deceptive and unpredictable from person to person. there are no long term positive results of this type of diet. large muscle mass does not mean strength or performance. a smaller person may not be able to bench press 500 lbs. however, with a cleaner diet he likely can do 30+ reps at 300 lbs. certainly a more useful athletic performance goal. an athlete who need to maintain bulk should maintain a diet including 50% raw food, animal protein from a clean source, and avoid dairy and processed foods at all costs. do not eat meals late at night, do not over eat and put strain on your digestive system. these are mistakes that everyone not just the athlete should avoid. athletes should drink more green juices and superfood smoothies. avoid soy and whey protein. use a high quality hemp based protein. alcohol is the breaker! keep the bowels clean, do colonics, and rest. systemic anti-inflammatory enzyme supplements are key!
what should i drink if i have a hangover?
that’s easy! there are only about 7,000,000 correct answers to this question. please email us what you drank the night before, what you ate, what mood you were in when you drank, who you drank with, how much you drank, how much did you consume while drinking and send us a blood sample so we can get a good glimpse at your genetic profile to answer this question accurately.
while most hangover remedies are wive’s tales, some are powerful placebos in action. it’s best to drink water if you feel dehydrated. it might help to drink green juices. the discomfort of a hangover has its obvious trace in the stomach. if it doesn’t make you queasy, try drinking our ginger fire ball. the ginger breaks up inter-cellular gases and reduces inflammation. like most remedies it’s what you are leaving out that allows the body to take over and heal so avoid processed foods, animal protein, and dairy for starters.
ineffective or unproven remedies
recommendations for foods, drinks and activities to relieve hangover symptoms abound. the ancient romans, on the authority of pliny the elder, favored raw owl’s eggs or fried canary, while the “prairie oyster” restorative, introduced at the 1878 Paris World exposition, calls for raw egg yolk mixed with worcestershire sauce, tabasco sauce, salt and pepper. by 1938, the ritz-carlton hotel provided a hangover remedy in the form of a mixture of coca-cola and milk (coca-cola itself having been invented, by some accounts, as a hangover remedy). alcoholic writer ernest hemingway relied on tomato juice and beer. certain mixtures were developed specifically for the purpose. the “black velvet” consists of equal parts champagne and flat guinness stout. 1957 survey by a wayne state university folklorist found widespread belief in the efficacy of heavy fried foods, tomato juice and sexual activity.
activities said to be restorative include a shower—alternating very hot and very cold water, exercise, and steambath or sauna (although medical opinion holds this to be very dangerous, as the combination of alcohol and hyperthermia increases the likelihood of dangerous cardiac arrhythmias).
other untested or discredited treatments include:
globe artichoke (cynara scolymus) extract: “our results suggest that artichoke extract is not effective in preventing the signs and symptoms of alcohol-induced hangover.”
propranolol: “we conclude that propranolol does not prevent the symptoms of hangover.”
fructose and glucose: a 1976 research came to the conclusion that “the results indicate that both fructose and glucose effectively inhibit the metabolic disturbances induced by ethanol but they do not affect the symptoms or signs of alcohol intoxication and hangover.” nevertheless, consumption of honey (a significant fructose and glucose source) is often suggested as a way to reduce the effect of hangovers.
kudzu (pueraria montana var. lobata): the main ingredient in remedies such as kakkonto. a study concluded, “the chronic usage of pueraria lobata at times of high ethanol consumption, such as in hangover remedies, may predispose subjects to an increased risk of acetaldehyde-related neoplasm and pathology. … pueraria lobata appears to be an inappropriate herb for use in herbal hangover remedies as it is an inhibitor of aldh2.”
“Now we depart from health in just the proportion to which we have allowed our alkalies to be dissipated by introduction of acid-forming food in too great amount. It may seem strange to say that all disease is the same thing, no matter what its myriad modes of expression, but it is verily so.”
-William Howard Hay, M.D. from his 1933 book “A New Health Era”
what does cold pressed juice mean?
cold pressing juice is a process invented by norman walker in 1932. his press (the norwalk) cuts down solid produce by shredding it into a pulp. this breaks open the fibers and frees the nutrients and enzymes from within.
the second phase of the press is to place the pulp in a cotton cloth and literally squeeze it using the flat hydraulic press. this method of juice extraction is more efficient than “the rotary blade juice machine”. the rotary machine only shreds the produce down and separates the juice from the pulp. the pulp is still teaming with liquid when it’s discarded wasting a good portion of the nutrients and enzymes. the cold press is a term that does not accurately describe the real process because the shredding down stage of the process can generate considerable heat during long phases of operation. especially on dense leafy greens. if caution is not used, one could easily bring the pulp temperatures above 120 degrees. the theory is that norwalks and similar machines are “cold”. not true. they are better at extracting.
our juice is made on the slowest machines that produce the least amount of juice commercially acceptable. there are larger commercial machines available, but we feel they produce an inferior tasting product. we use four norwalk cold press machines. the norwalk was invented by norman walker in 1930. norman walker died at age 99. he passed on a legacy of incredible juicing recipes and a knowledge base that we strictly adhere to.
our living mentor is fred bisci. fred is over 80 years old, a raw foodist for 40+ years, and has unrivaled knowledge on food and nutrition. we consult with fred on regular basis to confirm the health benefits of what we create.
we are the best juice and smoothie bar on the planet. it’s true. we checked. if you found us, it means that your food and health consciousness has soared higher
cold press juicing using the norwalk machines has several advantages. we have several norwalks in use at all times during normal business hours.
norman walker invented this machine some 75 years ago. the press has two separate juice extraction machines built into it: (1) the pulverizer; and (2) the 3 ton hydraulic press.
harder vegetables and certain fruits require first being pushed down the pulverizer feed tube. a slow spinning blade creates a pulp out of the produce.
the pulp is then wrapped in a cotton or linen cloth and placed on the press tray. the press crushes the juice from the pulp.
the result: the maximum juice extraction from the least amount of produce. also the pulverizer is proven to be the most effective way to liberate the nutritional enzymes from the fibers of the produce.
because the press does not force air into the juice during pressing, the juice is not decaying as fast as with other methods of juice extraction. it is considered perfectly acceptable to bottle this type of juice for 2 to 4 days. sweet potato juice may ferment in 2 days, whereas, ginger could hold up as long as a month in a sealed refrigerated container.
using norman walker’s machine and many of his formulas, and following his philosophies with the selection of fresh, raw, and ripe produce insures that you always get the best tasting and purest juice available.
in contrast to the slow working norwalk machines, we also use a standard rotary blade centrifugal juice machine. ours works excellent on a range of produce with the only disadvantage being that the centrifugal force rams air into the juice. this accelerates the decomposition of the fresh juice. therefore, it is recommended that this type of juice not be bottled or refrigerated but rather be consumed within a few minutes of production.
what is the best thing to have for a cold?
remember, it’s what you leave out of your diet that allows your body to heal. that doesn’t mean you have to starve yourself when your sick. start with leaving out any and all stimulants and poisons such as coffee, avoid dairy, and by all means stay away from processed foods. try drinking raw ginger juice to relieve symptoms. lypo-spheric vitamin c is also a powerful immune system builder.
when are you opening in my neighborhood?
how can i have my very own juice press?
write me a check for $1,050,000.00 and let’s talk.
is everything at juice press organic?
juice press uses only 100% organic produce and 100% organic supplements. on rare winter occasions when a produce is not available, (which for example occurred with cucumbers for 2 weeks in the winter of 2012, we posted on our website and on signage in the stores that we were using conventional cucumbers during that time period to maintain transparency.
during this drought prices of conventional cucumbers were actually higher than the normal price of organic. therefore, there were no retail price changes made store-wide. our owners consume the product on a daily basis and insist on using the highest quality produce in the juices and foods they consume. transparency is a fair and ethical practice that we feel we’ve mastered. we live in a glass house with a lot of eyes watching what we do.
companies that use the statement “organic when ever possible” are of full of bullY%^&! organic produce is almost always available. certain fruits are seasonal and can not be procured during certain months.
it is juice press kosher?
all of juice press stores are supervised by rabbi samuel gringus and rabbi noach valley. a common concern of some clients is how we clean leafy greens. we soak and exterminate insects that may be hosted on organic leafy greens by soaking these types of produce in a strong sea salt and water bath.
who comes up with all of the art work and weird stuff?
co-founder marcus antebi designed all of the art work for juice press. we have a collection of postcards, business, cards, bookmarks, and fliers. some are very informative and others are absolutely ridiculous and pointless.
what kind of bottles do you use?
we use a plastic and recyclable bottle. it is not corn or starch based. we do greatly dislike contributing to the world’s pollution problem. plastic sucks. but glass in our industry is not a better solution. glass is heavy, bulky, and difficult for us to store. glass bottles require a lot of resources to bring from a factory to your table. truth. what about BPA?
Bisphenol A (BPA) is an organic compound with the chemical formula (CH3)2C(C6H4OH)2. it is a colorless solid that is soluble in organic solvents, but poorly soluble in water. having two phenol functional groups, it is used to make polycarbonate polymers and epoxy resins, along with other materials used to make plastics.
BPA is controversial because it exerts weak, but detectable, hormone-like properties, raising concerns about its presence in consumer products and foods contained in such products.
it is chemically impossible for BPA to leach into the juice resulting from a cold pour.
we do not heat anything. we do not use microwaves. and we do not boil or soak bottles in high temperatures.
why is your juice so expensive?
we prefer the term “pricey”! juice press is charging a fair market price for the items we produce. you will find that most of our prices are less expensive than our top competitor’s price. genuine organic ingredients and non-pasteurized products are expensive to procure and maintain.
do you deliver to midtown?
juice press delivers from THREE locations: (1) downtown 70 east 1st street; (2) downtown 279 east 10th street; and (3) uptown 1050 third avenue at 62nd. to keep up with the downtown demand for delivery we have schedules for 6 ZONES of delivery. please click here
for zone and delivery questions email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
i’m pregnant. can i drink juice?
if you trust your obstetrician, follow his/her recommendations. anyone can get sick at anytime from produce, whether prepared at home or by a commercial operation like juice press. no doctor in their right mind would tell a pregnant women to avoid eating carrots or spinach. the fear and misinformation that doctors still feed their patients is still amazing to us.
juice press takes every precaution in handling produce to make sure we are serving fresh and clean juice and foods. that being said, this question is a loaded gun. moms, you’ll have to follow your own instincts and the recommendation of your doctor.
we are working with our legal team on how to properly warn people about food related sickness, the risks associated with a raw food, raw juice diet
is there a lot of sugar in your juice?
no. we do not add any fruit sugars or sugars from any other source. sugars occur naturally in fruit and are vital part of muscular strength and energy.
what are the calorie counts?
we are putting the calorie information as required by law on our labels as we open our 5th store.
calorie counting causes mass hysteria. dieting based on caloric intake has failed the masses for eternity. why are food experts still placing focus on calories? to lose weight, the addiction and the emotional components have to be addressed while a drastic life style change is practiced.
with raw food, the body is more efficient in utilizing the calories, whereas with processed foods and protein heavy diets, even with lower calorie intake, one will gain weight, always be hungry and will generally toxify the body.
why should i have green juice?
green juice is an anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and an antidote to the toxins in our diet and our environment. green juices and fruit juices contain nutrients that would redefine the RDAs established if processed foods were excluded from the diet.
what is the shelf life?
unpasteurized juice and raw foods have a short shelf life that varies based on the ingredients.
raw oatmeal and raw chia in a cashew nut based milk: 3 days max in cold cold fridge.?orange juie: 1 week?green juice: 3 days max?apple juice: 5 days?ginger juice: 2 weeks?salads: 3 days
where does your coconut water come from?
our coconut meat and water is imported from thailand. it is a USDA-approved coconut. in order for the water to be unprocessed and remain unpasteurized it must be shipped and stored frozen. (to use coconut water you must wait until the water is completely thawed.) the flesh or meat of the coconut is also shipped while frozen to avoid having to process it.
i am on a cleanse and i am starving. what should i do?
stick it out! drink water. your body will adjust, or should we say, your mind will adjust in a day or two. the body doesn’t distinguish between thirst and hunger so drink water or juice and your stomach will tell your brain to chillax.
can i still work out when i am on a cleanse?
technically you can run a marathon on juice alone. but you have to train yourself to do it. the nutrition in juice is far superior to the garbage most people consume. fact. this all being said, to cleanse on a cellular level you have to rest. it’s very hard to cleanse if you are in battle and stressed or pushing your body to the max.
try laying on your back with your eyes closed for 20 minutes 2x a day on a work day. it’s a form of blood dialysis. literally.
how do i get my protein and fiber from just juice?
we are busy pondering the best way to answer this question and will let you know soon.
what about fiber?
juice contains trace amounts of water soluble and non soluble fiber. you do not need fiber with a liquid diet. a purpose of fiber is to trigger peristalsis. but this is relevant with food and not with juice.
why don’t we make juice to order?
juice press has a simply philosophy regarding commercial juice extraction: cold pressing is our philosophy. the juice is 1000x better tasting and is more nutritious. we can not make cold pressed juices on demand. a cold pressed juice stored in an air tight bottle kept below 40 degrees is vital and fresh for 2 to 3 days
