Benefits of Fresh Juices

 

Through Fresh juices the body can absorb larger amounts of oxygen, nutrients, enzymes, and phytonutrients, the powerful substances that fight diseases.  Drinking one eight ounce glass of a fresh juice or smoothie enhances the body’s immune system and metabolism and provides essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.[1]

Order one of our fabulous drinks and enjoy the health benefits of fresh juices!

Try this delicious blast of green apples, pears, oranges, and carrots all in one fresh juice to help alkalize and oxygenate the body.  An eight-ounce glass will provide you an excellent source of fiber,  antioxidants such as the cancer-fighting compound called polyphenol, vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin C, vitamin E, sodium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, and zinc. [2] Also known for its therapeutic ability to cleanse the liver, intestines, and blood,[3] Solar System will purify the mind and body!

 

Galactic Greens

Chock full of powerful vitamins and essential minerals, our Galactic Green fresh juice is a delightful blend of wheatgrass, kale, spinach, celery, parsley, cucumbers, carrots, beets, and fresh mint.  Regarding wheatgrass, the Anne Wigmore Institute writes “wheatgrass juice is an effective healer because it contains chlorophyll, all minerals known to man, and Vitamins A, B-Complex, C, E, and K.  Wheatgrass is extremely rich in protein, and contains 17 amino acids, the building blocks of protein.”[4] Try this drink with your next Tabuleh Café Entrée!
