meet the greens
You may have heard that drinking green juice is one of the best ways to promote an alkaline body, but what does that mean? It means the pH of your body is in a more alkaline rather than acidic state.
The body is always trying to maintain equilibrium at a pH of 7.365, which is slightly alkaline. Why is this good? If your body is in a very acidic state, it will seek balance, and may do so by drawing nutrients from the bones.
Filling your body with fresh, live raw green foods is an easy way to alkalize the body, giving you energy and leaving you feeling flexible and balanced. The body actually absorbs nutrients faster when it's in juice form: since the body does not have to actually break down all the food and fiber, all of the nutrients are immediately absorbed into the bloodstream.
So, are you ready to go green? At Juice Bar, we have not one but SEVEN green juices (well... six juices and a smoothie) to choose from! All have the alkalizing effect on your body, but they each come with their own twist.
Let's meet the greens:
celery • kale • spinach • cucumber • parsley • lemon
You can't go wrong with a classic. Fresh Greens has a balanced blend of cucumber and celery that hydrates, relieves digestive issues, and improves your skin (and that's just a few things!) As the starting recipe for the rest of our green juices, Fresh Greens is the perfect jumping off point for aspiring juicers.
apple • kale • spinach • cucumber • parsley • lemon
Do you have a bit of a sweet tooth? Sweet Greens has all the benefits of our Fresh Greens, but we swap celery for apple, making it refreshing and sweet. Want to be a sweetie? Pick up a Sweet Greens for a friend or co-worker and introduce them to the joys of green juice.
ginger • apple • kale • spinach • cucumber • parsley • lemon
Want to start your day with a bit of a kick? Look no further than Ginger Greens. The fresh ginger in this blend improves your digestion by stimulating saliva, which can also relieve congestion and pain with its antibacterial properties. Ginger is also great for nausea, motion sickness, and other stomach issues.
cucumber • pineapple • mint • kale • spinach • parsley • lemon
Pineapple has a myriad of benefits, like aiding with tissue health, digestion, cold relief, bone health, and more (read more about the benefits of pineapple here.) Pineapple Greens also features mint, which soothes the stomach and cleanses the palate. If you're looking for a refreshing pick-me-up, you can't go wrong with this juice.
wheatgrass • celery • kale • spinach • cucumber • parsley • lemon
Have you ever been so busy that you wished you had super powers? Then we've got a juice for you! Super Greens is packed with wheatgrass, which is high in essential minerals, protein, and amino acid, among other things. It also contains nutrients like chlorophyll that can cause detoxification. Want to be your best self? Super Greens is the way to go.
jalapeño • celery • kale • spinach • cucumber • parsley • lemon
Are you looking to kick fat to the curb? Mean Greens is here to help you out. The jalapeño contains capsaicin, which helps to burn calories and fat. It also acts as an anti-inflammatory, which is good for reducing swelling and pain. This spicy juice is also good for relieving headaches, nasal congestion, and ridding your stomach of bacteria that can lead to stomach ulcers.
kale • spinach • pineapple • banana • lemon • coconut milk • apple juice
The Green Smoothie is one of our most popular smoothies. With banana and coconut milk, the Green Smoothie acts as a meal replacement, keeping you fuller longer, while also delivering all the benefits of green juice... yum!
