Anna's House is proud to introduce slow, cold-pressed juices to our Grandville store! Starting this week, you can now order two juices that come from whole fruits and vegetables and nothing else. Cold-pressed juices provide an array of health benefits that help our bodies short and long term. We want to share with you the perks of drinking cold-pressed juices in order to provide the West Michigan community with healthy options!
Introducing Sweet Beet, a blend of beets, carrots, celery, and lemon.
What can't beets do? These hearty veggies have an amazing antioxidant in them called betaine which prevents and fights cancer. That's a pretty big deal! Beets also detoxify the liver, help clear the digestive system, combat high blood pressure, lower levels of bad cholesterol, help neutralize toxins, protect your eyes, skin, kidneys, and liver. Phew, that was a lot! That's not all though. Beets can fight development of birth defects in pregnancy, help circulate blood flow, and they have a lot of good stuff like potassium, folate, vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants. Still skeptical on the power of beets? Didn't think so.
Carrots! We all know carrots help with your eye sight and bunnies like 'em. But carrots should be known for way more than just that. Carrots are high in vitamin A which is good for eyesight, a healthy brain, cells, and lungs. They also have a high amount of antioxidants which boost immune systems, preventing you from getting sick, while protecting your skin and eyes. Antioxidants also fight free radicals, cancer, and heart disease. You can find vitamins A, C, D, E, K, magnesium, potassium, calcium, and carotenoids which fight illness and chronic diseases, and decrease risk of heart disease and stroke. Carrots also protect against and fight cancer, prevent cavities and tooth decay, fight inflammation, and heal wounds. They also help your brain's function and memory! Now that that's all covered, carrots are highly underrated, don't you think?
So you're probably starting to believe the power of juicing, but just in case you need more to get you into our Grandville store, here's the scoop on celery! Celery has a long list of vitamins (A, B1, B2, B6, and C), potassium, folate, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, safe and organic sodium, and amino acids. They help lower blood pressure, combat cancer, balance body pH, lower bad cholesterol, keep your body cool, aid digestion, eliminate toxins, prevent inflammation, help weight loss, and calms nerves. Celery is perfect for a summer cool down, but also for helping you shake that summer sickness that seems to be spreading.
You probably see lemons everywhere, but never realized how great they are for you! If you get past the bittersweet lip puckering, then you can absorb all of the goodness they have to offer. Lemons give you a huge amount of vitamin C, antioxidants, free radicals that fight cancer, and they boost the immune system.
The swirling combination of all of these fruits and vegetables creates a powerfully nutritious elixir that can help your body from the inside out.
During these extremely humid days when it feels impossible to feel energized, this juice is for you! Our Snappy Apple Carrot is perfect for a zesty wake-me-up. A little tangy pop can spark the lethargy right out of you! It features only three ingredients which blend perfectly in harmony: apples, carrots, and ginger.
Who said you necessarily had to eat an apple a day? Just drink one to keep the doctor away! Apples are high in fiber and antioxidants which prevent inflammation, fight cancer and heart disease, lower risk of heart attack, and aid digestion.
Ginger also aids digestion, overall health and immunity, fights colds, cancer, and inflammation. It also can help prevent nausea from occurring. Ginger also helps circulation with their abundance of antioxidants. Plus, there's nothing better than that prickly sweet taste of ginger to wake up your senses.
Do not let the simplicity of this drink fool you! It is jam packed with vitamins and nutrients that your body really wants in order to feel the best it can! Also, don't forget you can refresh your memory on the power of carrots above.
So what makes juicing the best way to absorb these delicious fruits and veggies? Why not just eat them? Well, with a cold-pressed machine, the whole produce is used so you get every last drop. The fruit and vegetables are crushed and pressed to release their juices instead of being cut and spun to extract the juice. This process gets more juice from the produce as well as a higher amount of nutrients and doesn't heat the juice up. We add ice cubes to the juice to make it taste refreshing, but also because if juice is heated, it doesn't retain as many nutrients!
With these two juices, now you can enjoy a guilt free drink on the side of your favorite Anna's House dish. These will be featured only at our Grandville location, so be sure to visit us to try our newest product! We want to know your thoughts about our newest addition, so be sure to fill out our feedback form before you leave our store!
