As we welcome a brand new year we’re all looking for ways to take life to the next level. One of the easiest ways to provide a major upgrade to your health this year is by resolving to get more greens! Throughout Pressed Juicery headquarters and at Chalkboard shoots and meetings all over town, hardly a moment goes by that one of us is not popping a bottle of Greens juice. But even within our own team we’re resolving to drink more Greens juice this year!
- Here’s why: Pressed Juicery Greens 1, Greens 2, Greens 3 and Greens 4 are created on a hydraulic press: No other juicing method squeezes more nutrition and juice out of fresh produce than these presses. Each bottle of Greens contains pound after pound of green vegetables – more greens than any salad we could hope to toss in one day. Plus, our Greens juices contain a blend of the most nutritious green, leafy veggies you can find on earth. In just one bottle you’re getting the full range of nutrition from the world’s most nutritious green superfoods:
Kale is a rare vegetable in the sense that you can obtain calcium from kale – that key mineral also found in milk! It is also promoted for its vitamin C and vitamin A content. Kale is known for its lutein content, and is one of the best sources of beta-carotene—a pro-vitamin A source.
Don't confuse romaine lettuce with iceberg lettuce! Romaine is a highly nutritious salad green and is known to be a great source of vitamins A, B, and C, as well as minerals manganese and chromium.
The benefits of spinach:, a leafy green, include great sources of vitamin K, vitamin A, magnesium, and iron. This popular vegetable includes several important phytochemicals, including lutein. Surprisingly, spinach also contains a good amount of protein.
Cucumber has significant water content and aids in kidney, liver, and pancreatic function. Highly cleansing and hydrating.
Parsley is a great source of pro-vitamin A beta carotene, potassium, vitamin C and chlorophyll. Also rich in antioxidants and essential oils.
Watercress is one of the most nutrient-dense foods you can put in your body. Known for its calcium, iron, and potassium content, watercress ranks high with nutrition professionals everywhere.
Beets are cell-builders and renew the body with key minerals. Combined with carrots, beets are a great aid in kidney and liver function.
An excellent source of antioxidants from beta-carotene, carrots play an outstanding role in optimal health and provide major immune support.
Apples provide antioxidant vitamin C and a good dose of soluble fiber. They are also a great way to lightly sweeten an otherwise tart juice. Apples are one of the few fruits that can be well-digested with other vegetables in juice blends.
Lemons are an incredible fruit. A natural acidifier, lemons have an incredible effect on the stomach, stimulating the digestive system and providing a healthy shift you can feel. Lemons are rich in antioxidants and essential oils that are powerful aids to the body. We recommend adding lemon to almost everything!
This super root, with its refreshing flavor, has many benefits including aiding in digestion, soothing the stomach and boosting circulation. Highly anti-inflammatory.
