Feeling down or sick? We’ve got fruit + veggie power that is calling your name!
To prevent reduced nutrient levels and preserve our ingredients’ natural nutrition, Clean Juice uses a cold-pressed juicing technique that crushes and gently presses our fresh, organic produce into refreshing juices. Because Clean Juice’s cold-pressed juices are intended to deliver as much nutrition as possible, we don’t use HPP or any other pasteurization method that will alter the integrity of the nutrition in our juices. This means that all of those powerful nutrients can provide the maximum benefits to your body!
Many people suffer an energy crash in the mid-afternoon and may lose concentration and begin to feel tired. One key contributor to the dreaded afternoon slump is a caffeine crash. Coffee has a temporary energy-boosting effect that can make you feel super productive and focused in the morning, but when the caffeine wears off, you could be left feeling lethargic, and your mood might even suffer.
Cashew Milk Latte and Cacao Milk are two healthy and nutritious coffee alternatives that won’t cause you to crash. In addition to their energy-boosting benefits, they both contain antioxidant-rich nutrients, which are beneficial to your long-term health. The cacao nibs found in both Cashew Milk Latte and Cacao Milk are rich in iron, an essential trace mineral needed to produce hemoglobin, which is what your red blood cells use to deliver oxygen throughout the body. One of the key symptoms of iron deficiency is fatigue. Drinking a Cacao Milk cold-pressed juice can quickly give you the surge in iron you need to combat your sleepy state!
Similarly, cashews are also a natural fatigue-fighting food. Cashews are rich in copper, a trace mineral needed for the metabolization of iron. Cashews can help boost energy and even improve blood vessel strength, which improves circulation and helps keep you alert and active. (1)
Whether you’ve got a cold or flu or you’ve come down with a sinus infection, your immune system needs all the support it can get. As you start to get sick, many people find sinus issues as the first symptom. Getting these signs under control can help prevent full-blown sinusitis!
When you feel congested, the tissues along your sinuses are inflamed or swollen, which leads to an infection. The more inflamed these tissues become, the more mucus builds up, as the sinuses are unable to be drained thoroughly. If you’re feeling stuffed up, drink lots of fluids to stimulate the thinning of mucus and the draining of your sinuses.
There are also natural ways to reduce the inflammation and boost your immune system so you can breathe again and prevent a severe infection. Orange, Yellow and Green cold-pressed juices have immune-enhancing and anti-inflammatory ingredients that will target your troubled sinuses and encourage decongestion!
Yellow and Green both have lemon—a major source of the immune-boosting nutrient, vitamin C. Green has ginger, which not only helps with immune support, but it can reduce inflammation in your sinuses too. Similarly, the cayenne in Yellow is another powerful natural decongestant that will help clear your nasal cavities.
Orange is another reliable source of vitamin C, but this cold-pressed juice also contains turmeric, one of mother nature’s best anti-inflammatories that can reduce sinus swelling and clear up your stuffy nose. (2)
Headaches are a highly personal condition, triggered for different reasons in different people. Primary headaches (those that aren’t a symptom of another underlying condition) can be caused by muscles strains in the head and neck or dilated blood vessels around that skull. Both of these add pressure to the head, resulting in a pounding sensation. Stress, caffeine, diet and many other factors may contribute to headaches.
Cashew Milk Latte cold-pressed juice is a magnesium-rich drink that can relieve and prevent headaches. Both cashews and cacao nibs in the Cashew Milk latte contain high amounts of magnesium, which can give you the mineral boost you might need to relieve your headaches. Our Cashew Milk Latte cold-pressed milk contains cinnamon. Many studies have shown that cinnamon has powerful anti-inflammatory benefits, including potentially reducing inflammation that causes headaches!
Stomach unrest may be attributed to an imbalance in your gut microbiome. Within your intestines, there are hundreds of different bacteria, and having a proper balance between the good and bad ones is critical. A healthy gut microbiome keeps your immune system in check. An over-stock of bad bacteria is linked to mental health issues, mood, autoimmune diseases, skin disorders and much more.
Balancing your gut health is dependent on what you do and don’t eat. Diets rich in probiotics, fiber and antioxidants can help promote gut health by balancing gut bacteria, eliminating more waste and repairing and healing damaged cells in the digestive tract.
Clean Juice’s Orange and Pink juices can help achieve exactly this. Our Orange juice is a blend of oranges, carrots and turmeric. Both oranges and carrots are high in fiber to help promote healthy bowel movements and the elimination of toxins. Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory that may help address inflamed digestive tract tissues. Pink juice is made with pitaya—dragon fruit powder—which is a natural prebiotic to help bring a balance in your gut microbiome.
Aches and Pains?
Aches and pains happen for a variety of reasons. If any of the moving ligaments, muscles, or bones become inflamed or worn out, it can cause your joints to ache. When your joints experience excessive wear-and-tear or inflammation, it’s important to nourish your body with plenty of antioxidants to help heal and repair damaged cells and tissues, preventing further deterioration in your joints.
Both Orange and Gold offer anti-inflammatory and antioxidant nourishment. Orange’s primary ingredient (you guessed it – oranges) is a super source of vitamin C—an immune-enhancing antioxidant. Researchers have linked diets high in vitamin C with reduced inflammation and healthier joints. Both of our Orange and Gold cold-pressed juices contain turmeric, a spice with anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties. Gold also contains cashews, which are a rich source of magnesium for natural relief of muscle stiffness!
The point of working out is to get stronger. And to get stronger, you need to increase the intensity of your activity and perform exercises you’re not used to. As you exercise more intensely, your muscle fibers and connective tissues develop microscopic tears, and they become inflamed. If you feel sore the next day or two following intense or strenuous activity, it’s because your body is repairing itself. This Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) is a normal and expected consequence of the physical stress you put on your body. But you can get over the soreness faster with the right nutrients that help repair stressed muscles and tissues.
To heal sore muscles, you want to control inflammation, nourish your tissues and stay hydrated. Thankfully, nutrient-rich and hydrating cold-pressed juices can deliver all these benefits and more to help you overcome muscle soreness.
White is a post-workout recommendation because it contains protein from cashews that help repair your muscle fibers. It also delivers lots of minerals from Himalayan pink salt to replenish your electrolytes. Celery juice also provides intense hydration and contains several phytonutrients with anti-inflammatory properties to ease muscle swelling. Finally, our Red juice is a workout recovery must-have thanks to its beet content. Beets contain nitrates, which help reduce muscle inflammation and soreness, allowing you to recover faster.
Certain foods are heart-healthy in that they perform functions like reducing inflammation, stabilizing blood pressure and balancing cholesterol.
Celery juice, for example, may help to lower blood pressure. Celery contains phytonutrients that promote the relaxation of arterial walls, which improves blood flow and reduces blood pressure. Celery has other nutrients that are good for blood pressure, such as magnesium, potassium and fiber.
Gold juice also has blood pressure-regulating properties, thanks to its turmeric content. Tumeric has been studied extensively for its heart health benefits, and researchers suggest that compounds in turmeric can help improve blood vessel function and even prevent clots. Gold also contains cashews, which may help to balance your good and bad cholesterol levels. Cacao Milk gives you a dose of cinnamon, which has been linked to a lower risk of heart disease. Similarly, cacao nibs are also packed with flavonoids—an antioxidant linked to heart disease prevention. (7)
Most people experience difficulty concentrating from time to time, either from being over- or under-stimulated. Striking that balance is critical to sharper focus and better memory retention. Mental clarity is often tied to factors like diet, exercise and stress. If any of these aspects is off, it can impact your ability to focus, sending you into a state of brain fog. Limited physical activity can decrease circulation and oxygen flow to the brain. Too much stress can overwhelm you and prevent you from being able to focus on one thing at a time. And certain foods—especially heavily processed ones—cause inflammation in the brain.
Improve your mental clarity with one of our two green juices. Both Green and Sweet Green contain two brain-boosting leafy greens—spinach and kale. Studies have found that eating leafy greens improves cognitive function. Spinach and kale are both rich in antioxidants. The nutrients found in kale and spinach help reduce oxidative stress. Both spinach and kale have been shown to help reverse age-related damage to the brain that’s associated with cognitive decline. Fueling up on both Green and Sweet Green can have anti-aging benefits for your mind to improve your mental clarity. (8)
