Finding a brand of healthy juices can be expensive and confusing! But it doesn't need to be. Here are the top 5 things you should keep in mind when considering what juice you want to buy.
1. Certified Organic
Studies have shown that switching to organic can reduce your body’s toxin load by as much as 90%! Organic means it’s always non-GMO, grown without pesticides and hormones, and simply tastes better. Stay away from pesticide cocktails and make sure your juice is always USDA certified organic!
2. Sugar Content
Smart Pressed Juice products contain only between 1- 2g of naturally occurring sugar while other juices on the market contain about 39g of sugar per juice! The American Heart Association recommends no more than 25g of sugar per day so don’t blow it all in one place.
The wider the variety, the more nutrients for your body. Our juices are filled with such a large variety, it’s like getting an entire organic farmer’s market in a glass.
4. Clean & Complete Low Carb Proteins
A lot of companies like to use fillers to make up for the low quality protein. So make sure you check out if their plant-based proteins are made of a variety of complete proteins like seeds, sprouts and grains. That’s how you know it’s quality!
Sometimes when life gets in the way, taking care of yourself is usually the first thing to go. Make sure your juice is always within reach. It could be as simple as adding a scoop to water and you'll have all your veggies for the day!
