“Juice bars are really big in cosmopolitan cities like L.A., New York, and Atlanta,” declares Sharon Connett, Produce Manager and Juicery Specialist at Fresh Thyme in West Des Moines, Iowa. “They’re only now catching on here in the Midwest, but they’re gaining ground fast!” Sharon says.
If you have a hard time getting in all your fruits and veggies for a day, stop at the Fresh Thyme Juicery to boost your nutrition status. Our freshly made juices aren’t pasteurized (heated or irradiated), so to maintain their maximum nutritional value, you should store them in the fridge and consume them within a few days. A caveat: Juicing normally removes quite a bit of fiber helpful to the body, but the Fresh Thyme juicing machines leave a lot of it in the juices. Naturally, juicing shouldn’t be your sole food source. Just be sensible and eat healthy!
A juice regimen may boost your immune system and give you powerful antioxidants that can reduce inflammation. It’s certainly clear that juices are a terrific source of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. You can create your own fresh juice from scratch or modify a favorite juice using powdered supplements or organic material such as wheatgrass.
Wheatgrass is a superfood rich in B vitamins, zinc, iron, magnesium, and vitamins A, C, and E. It can aid digestion and boost your immune system. Wheatgrass is available in pill and powder form in the Natural Living department, or it may be purchased growing in the store. Using scissors, harvest the grass when it is 4 to 6 inches high and cut into smaller pieces. Pop them into a masticating (or cold-press) juicer to grind the juice out of the grass.
