Survival Bros juices! And we love it. If you haven’t had fresh, raw, fruit and veggie juice, then you’re are missing out. In this blog, SB shows you the power of juicing. If you want, make a drink, then read on. I’m sipping a cucumber, carrot, celery blend as I write.

I got the Jack Lalanne Power Juicer two years back. Since then, every time I need more energy, I look to juicing. Sure caffeine and other stimulants can give you a boost, but fresh juice is different. It gives me energy, and mental clarity. It’s electric, and alive. I feel better immediately after drinking a large glass. Sometimes I pound 72 ounces for a complete meal. Try mixing protein, wheat grass, or maca powder in for even more power! Play around with mixing supplements and juice.

If you’ve never juiced before, don’t be scared. You probably won’t have to hangout near the bathroom either, like some people think. Juicing is a natural, and easy way to detox, and even super hydrate. I typically juice before setting out on a long adventure. Coconut water is another excellent hydrator.

Freshly extracted juice is best consumed within 24 hours, but it’s OK if refrigerated up to three days in a sealed container. Hippies like us at Survival Bros also love that it hasn’t been pasteurized. Heat destroys bacteria, molds, and unwanted micro-organisms that MIGHT be hiding in the juice, but all those raw vitamins, minerals, and enzymes are likely lost too. Think for yourself. I’ve never heard of anybody getting hurt juicing.

Juice is healing. Go on a three day juice feast and tell me you don’t look and feel better. Juicing gives you vitality. The more you juice, the more you glow. Your skin will look better, and people will notice. No we aren’t selling juicers, but we do want you to be healthy. If you can’t afford a new juicer, then regularly visit a shop or health food store that serves fresh juice. You can also buy a manual, citrus juicer for under $10. Next to practicing yoga, juicing is probably the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. You won’t regret investing in a juicer. There are plenty of books on the topic too, so don’t be intimidated to start your practice. The documentary, “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead” by Joe Cross is worth watching also.

Another juice I really enjoy is simply: beets, lemon, ginger, and green apples! Let’s hear your juicing journey. Comment here or leave a recipe for others. Best wishes from the bunker.

    Thanks for sharing this good and healthy information’; Juice is really good for health and can fulfill lots of daily nutritional requirements. Be sure to take it in a bit fibrous form for maximum benefits. Combination of vegetable and fruits are better if you want to loose weight because that contains more nutrients and less amount of sugar.

    • Thanks for the info. I’m not too worried about fruit sugars. I just want their energy. If i was juicing watermelons and apples all day, I could see it becoming an issue. Visit again soon.
