Adding cold pressed juice to your diet is a way of boosting nutrition and getting back to healthy basics.  Cleansing is about taking clean eating to the next level giving your system a break and helping reduce your dependence on unhealthy, processed foods.  Even If you aren't quite ready to swap your food for juice it's a great idea to add one or two of our all natural, fresh pressed juices to your regular diet.  

Here's 5 Reasons "C's Lemonade" is one of LCLA's favorite Roll Juices

1.  Aids in digestion & detoxification

Because lemon juices's atomic structure is similar to the digestive juices found in the stomach, it tricks the liver into producing bile which helps keep food moving through your body and gastrointestinal tract smoothly.  Lemon juice also helps relieve indigestion and stomach upset. 

2.  Rejuvenates skin & body healing

The antioxidants in lemons fight damage caused by free radicals keeping your skin looking fresh. It also helps the body produce collagen, an essential in smoothing out lines in the face.  

3.  Bumps up the Vitamin C quotient

Your body doesn't make vitamin C on its own so it's important to get enough of it from from the foods and drinks you ingest, like cold pressed lemonade. Vitamin C stimulates white blood cell production which is vital for your immune system to function properly and also protects cells from oxidative damage. Each 12oz bottle contains approximately 10 ounces of cold pressed lemon juice adding around187% of the RDA of Vitamin C to your day. 

4.  Helps shed pounds

Regularly sipping C's cold pressed Lemonade can help you lose unwanted pounds because lemons contain pectin, a type of fiber commonly found in fruits.  Pectin helps you feel full longer which means you'll chow down less throughout the day (the reason it's #2 in the Roll Juice Cleanse).  Plus, did you know being slightly dehydrated makes you prone to things like headaches, fatigue, and an overall bad mood? Chugging the fresh pressed lemons in C's Lemonade also helps your body stay hydrated & happy.

Agave nectar is an all natural sweetner with a low glycemic index that won't cause a sharp spike or fall in blood sugar. 

5.  Boosts energy + Mood

Looking for a way to cut out that extra cup of coffee or energy drink? C's cold pressed lemonade can boost energy levels without the caffeine crash. Here's how it works:  Our bodies get energy from the atoms and molecules in foods.  When negative charged ions like those found in lemons, enter your digestive tract the result is a natural increase in energy levels.  Voila.
