Absolutley not! Juice fasting is not for everyone. Adding nutrient dense juice into your diet a little bit at a time can add dramatic health benefits. We recommend getting one juice in per day, but even if you start with one juice per week, you may start to feel a difference. Getting the nutrients and enzymes from fresh produce, especially if you are not consuming enough in your daily diet, can leave you feeling energized and give your body the nutrients it needs and loves.
We recommend drinking your unpasteurized juice within 20 minutes of opening. Our juice is loaded with nutrients and enzymes, and they begin breaking down at a faster rate when exposed to oxygen. We prefer that breakdown happens in your belly, and not in the bottle. So bottoms up!
Yes! Yes! Yes! Because our juices are raw and not processed in any way, they are very perishable. We want to keep those enzymes and nutrients alive and well and breaking down in your body, not in the bottle! Our juices rapidly lose nutritional value and taste when left unrefrigerated. All of our juice and nut milks need to be kept at 40 degrees or below at all times. On the run? Put those babies on some ice in a cooler my friends. At home? They live in the fridge.
Every single bottle has 2.5 – 3 pounds of fresh, organic produce. When you consume organic, unpasteurized, nutrient rich cold-pressed juice that is loaded with all of the nutrients, vitamins and enzymes that whole food offers, you have to think of it more as liquid fuel for you body!
All of our juices have great benefits for you body! Just because it isn’t green, doesn’t mean it isn’t doing wonders for your body. Green juice is famous for being more low sugar nutrient dense while offering alkalizing effects. More fruit based juices are still loaded with nutrients, vitamins, and enzymes that your body needs and loves. See each of our juices to learn what each one can do for you!
Any juices that are sold in a grocery store or coffee shop are required by the FDA to be pasteurized for maximum shelf life. Pasteurization involves heating the juice and then cooling it during the manufacturing process to kill microbial bacteria. Another pasteurization process has evolved using pressure instead of heat. Unfortunately, pasteurization also kills vitamins, minerals and living enzymes that are essential in the digestion process and our overall vibrancy. BJC juices are pure; we don’t further process or pasteurize and we never add anything- no water, no sugar, no preservatives, no colors, no flavors.
Of course you can! But you are going to be putting down some serious fruit and veggies to get the same amount of minerals, vitamins, enzymes, and antioxidants that a cold-pressed juice can offer. There is approximately 2 1/2 -3 pounds of produce in each of our bottles. Also, juice is able to offer rapid absorption so the delivery of those goodies is much more efficient for your body. That being said, we still want you to eat your greens! But it is great to give your digestive system a little break and drink them too.
Oh fresh organic produce…we love you but you tend to do what you want! Every batch of produce can have a little variance in flavor and ripeness, and that gets passed on to our juice. Although the flavor differences are often subtle, we kind of like that our wonderful produce likes to change things up every once in a while!
Absolutely! We think it is actually a pretty beautiful effect, and your body will too! Because we don’t preserve, filter, or add anything to our juice, it tends to need a little shake to put itself back together. Separation is natural and as long as your juice has been refrigerated properly it does not indicate spoilage of any kind. Always refrigerate your juice, shake before consuming, and enjoy by the expiration date on top!
Well yes we do! We deliver to the local Boise and Meridian area. Please call if you are outside of that area to see if we can deliver to you!
We promise we love the environment. Which is why we use plastic at this time. We plan to move to glass in the future when we can offer a buy back program for our glass bottles. But until then, plastic bottles are easier to recycle and expend less energy during the process. They are also lighter and require less fuel during transportation. We are BPA and BPS free. Our shot bottles are glass and can be returned to our shop for a little refund so we can recycle and reuse!
If you have medial concerns of any kind or currently take medication, check with your doctor before introducing cold-pressed juices into your diet or doing a juice cleanse. We are not doctors, so we prefer you trust the professionals. But here are our thoughts!
* PREGNANT OR NURSING: Organic cold pressed juice is an amazing way to get all of those nutrients that your body needs during this amazing time of building and providing nourishment for another little body. However, ask your doctor before proceeding. Cleansing is not advised while pregnant or nursing.
* DIABETES: We only recommend cleansing under the supervision and guidance of your physician. We do offer juices on the lower glycemic index and can customize any cleanses to fit your nutritional needs.
* CANCER: Organic juice can really supplement the diet and provide nutrition to help your body recover from treatment. Sometimes, getting enough nutrition is hard when your body is fighting a tough battle. Please ask your doctor if organic unpasteurized juice is right for you.
