Frequently Asked Questions

Why do you use organic vs. commercial ingredients?

At J House Juice we use 100% organic ingredients in our juices. We believe that this is essential to make the best juice possible. When making a fresh juice you are concentrating all of the vitamins, minerals, and enzymes from the produce into your juice and if you are using commercial produce who knows what other pesticides you may be concentrating! With juicing we are working towards eliminating that stuff from our body, we don’t want to put any back in.  

I should chew my juice?

It may sound odd but yes, juices should be “chewed” or swished around in your mouth to trigger the release of saliva that contains important digestive enzymes. 

Can’t I just make this juice at home?

Juice made at home on a traditional centrifugal or rotary juicer is already exposed to heat and oxidation before it enters your glass, beginning to breakdown the vital elements that you want in your body. Because of this, juice made on these machines has to be consumed immediately. At J House Juice we use Norwalk juicers, which uses 4000lbs of pressure to extract all the nourishing elements from the ingredients, rupturing the cell walls and liberating an abundance of nutrients, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and chlorophyll. The cold pressed method of extraction produces a much more nutritious juice that is able to stay fresh and vital for a few days with proper storage- and it tastes better too! 

Why drink juice rather than smoothies?

Blending simply combines all of the ingredients you place in your blender, leaving the pulp and fiber intact. Fiber is a great addition to your diet and can help prevent many diseases. Unlike juicing, however, consuming blended drinks makes your body work harder to digest the ingredients.

Juicing separates the pulp from the vegetables and fruits, leaving only juice behind. With juicing you are still consuming beneficial soluble fiber, like pectin, which is excellent for the digestive tract, helps to lower blood cholesterol levels, stabilize blood sugar, and improves good bowel bacteria.

The major benefit of juicing comes from absorbing all of the enzymes, amino acids and minerals almost immediately. With fibrous foods, such as smoothies, your body has to break it down. This can last anywhere from 2-3 hours. This is the fundamental reason juicing is so amazing. 

When is a good time to drink fresh juices?

The best time to drink a fresh juice is with an empty stomach, usually around 2 hours after a meal, or 20 minutes before a meal. Having an empty stomach allows the nutrients in the juice to go straight into your bloodstream. When you have fiber or other food in your digestive tract it prevents your body from quickly absorbing the nutrients from the juice.
