Love W Chia Seed Limited Addition

watermelon_3-01

We introduce to you, the LIMITED ADDITION of our cold-pressed family, LOVE W! I know the name is the same with our previous Love W but the different is we add CHIA SEED! Curious what’s in it? It’s a perfect blend of delicious watermelon, beet root, apple and chia seed! This refreshing juice is not only pleasant to the taste buds, but has many health benefits in it as well. Watermelon is a rich source of lycopene, the carotenoid compound that gives watermelon their red colour. It is one of the important anti-oxidants for our body. A study conducted in South Korea has found that lycopene may benefit heart health by boosting our body’s natural antioxidant defences and protects against DNA damage (1). Lycopene also has cholesterol-lowering properties and blood pressure-lowering effect (2).


Why Chia Seeds?

chia-seeds-in-a-bowlChia seed give many benefit to our body. It is also one of the super foods. Why? Because it have ‘superpowers’ nutrients: Omega-3 essential fatty acids, antioxidants, protein, calcium, iron, potassium, vitamins A, B, E, and D, as well as other key minerals. Like flax seeds, chia seeds are very high in Omega-3 fatty acids, with nearly five grams in a one-ounce serving. These fats are important for brain health and overall health.

According to researcher, chia seeds give you stable energy because of their great ratio of protein, fats and fibre combined with the fact that they’re low-carb. Chia seeds may help preventing cravings by making you feel full and overeating. This is because chia seed expend when in liquid, which help you to feel full and reduce your appetite. Other than that, chia is rich in fibre which absorbs large amounts of water and expands in the stomach. This make you feel full and slow the absorption of food. Adding some chia into your diet is good for your digestive health as it is high in fibre. Moreover, by taking chia, it is an easy way to make sure you’re getting a good amount of fibre.

Certain ethnic groups of central Mexico (ancient Aztec warriors) ate chia for their strength and stamina during battle. When you do intense workout, chia can help provide fat or fuel after the carbs burn off. You can even have them during continuous activity such as hiking or bicycling to really boost up your energy levels. Furthermore, they can provide tissue repairing protein after workout and improves exercise performance. Chia seeds is a great pre-workout fuel because it keep you hydrated and functioning at your best.

ARE YOU GETTING ENOUGH FRUITS AND VEGGIES EVERY DAY?

According to Malaysian Dietary Guideline, eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. We always hear this statement but what exactly does plenty mean? Five bowls of fruit? Six salads? Nine apples? Two sweet potatoes? How much is enough? Fruits and vegetables contain some of the most vital nutrients for our overall health, but how many of us are actually consuming the recommended amount of at least five servings of fruits and vegetables per day? With our hectic lifestyles, it can be difficult to keep track of our daily fruit and vegetable needs. That’s why a bottles of La Juiceria juices is a great way to top up your nutrient intake every day.

WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR BODY WHEN YOU DON’T GET ENOUGH NUTRIENTS:

  1. Weak Immune system

Fruits and vegetables both provide antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. If you lack vegetables in your diet and the important vitamins they provide, your body may lack the defenses it needs to release free radical fighters against viruses

 

  1. Digestive Problems & Constipation

You could feel super bloated and uncomfortable. If you’re not eating enough fruits, you’ll likely feels there is excess gas in your stomach, causing the dreaded feeling of bloating. Vegetables are major sources of dietary fibre, which helps push waste efficiently out of your colon. Too much salt in your diet also leads to bloating. To counter this, eat fruits that are packed with potassium and drinking more water may help. The National Institutes of Health links low fibre intake to digestion problems that include constipation and diverticular diseases.

Benefits of  that found in fruits and vegetables:

  • Help push food through
  • Prevent constipation
  • Eliminate toxins
  • Improve immune function
  • Regulate appetite and blood sugar levels
  • Reduce cholesterol
  • Promote a healthy digestive system

 

  1. Diabetes

Weight gain is commonly related with diabetes. If you’re eating a lot of high-density foods instead of fruits and vegetables, you will probably gain unhealthy amounts of weight which may lead to be at risk of getting Type 2 Diabetes. Why would you destroy your own body system? Put down the junk food and grab a fruit or vegetable instead!

 

  1. Overweight

You might be eating higher-calorie foods that promote weight gain and nutrient imbalance. Fast food, heavy meat intake and sugar are common things in Malaysia, hence the country ranks high in obesity rates. Research in the US has shown that people who are overweight or obese eat less fruits and vegetables than normal-weight groups. Becoming overweight increases your risk for many chronic diseases. You can eat more and feel full and happy with fewer calories in fruits and vegetables because they are low in calories and high in energy density.

 

  1. Cancer Risk

While there is no specific food that can protect you from cancer, a diet that includes antioxidants may reduce cancer risks. Antioxidants such as vitamin E, vitamin C, and carotenoids may reduce cancer risks by protecting healthy cells from free radicals. You can get antioxidants from kale, blueberries, blackberries and more. Don’t think by having these vitamins alone will help protect you from cancer risk because the other factors plays an important role as well. Practice a healthy lifestyle. Stop smoking and do regular exercises.

  1. Heart Disease

Eating lots of fruits and vegetables can reduce your risk for heart disease and stroke because of its effects in lowering blood pressure. A study has revealed that people who eat 8 or more fruits and vegetables a day are 30% less likely to have a heart attack or stroke.

 

  1. High Blood Pressure and Kidney Failure

Too much salt in the bloodstream reduces the ability of your kidney to remove water. It results to higher blood pressure and strains your kidney. Counter this with vegetables and fruits which are good natural sources of potassium, which has the opposite effect to salt and will help to lower the blood pressure. They are rich in potassium, calcium, and magnesium, which helps reduce the sodium in your diet.

 

  1. Bleeding Gums, Anaemia and Fatigue

Fruits and vegetables contain some of the most vital nutrients for our health, eating too few can result in nutrient deficiencies which leads to scurvy, fatigue, anaemia, depression, bleeding gums and more! Yes, you can get these nutrients in other food, but fruits and vegetables contain high concentrations and are great sources of goodness!

START THEM YOUNG

Fruits and vegetables are vital for everyone’s health. Our likes and dislikes of foods are formed in the first few years of life, so it’s important to give children lots of fruit and vegetables to try. It will help them develop a taste for them, meaning they will be more likely to eat fruit and vegetables as teenagers and adults.

AN EASY WAY OUT!
It is important to eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables a day. La Juiceria juices is very convenient for those who have a tough busy lifestyle, especially if you’re not a fan of neither one! If you can’t eat it, drink it.

Ramadhan Promotion

Centuries ago, pitaya was first discovered in Central America and has spread its seeds to all corners of the world. Early missionaries brought Pitaya to Asia where it has since been renamed and is more commonly known as the Dragon Fruit. It stems from  the cactus family which makes complete sense when looking at its spikes and unique characteristics. The flesh of the fruit comes in both red or pink and white. The pink variety is more commonly known and most popular in healthy eating diet for its beautiful colour. AS they say you should always eat with your eyes first.

Nutritionally, this exotic fruit is a great source of fibre which is good to be consumed daily for healthy digestion; meaning to say it helps regulate our digestion and prevents constipation. The fibre in this fruit can also improve your metabolic rate and making sure we’re getting rid of metabolites, excess water, and others that our body doesn’t need.

Anyway, if you haven’t heard about our Pitaya Smoothie Bowl, you should try it! We are here to tell you it is incredibly nutrient dense, beautiful yet delicious! The Pitaya Bowl consist of wonderful colours with the perfect combination of fruits for superb health! They are mainly loaded with amazing antioxidant ingredients.

That’s not the only nutritional benefits: high in fibre, antioxidants, healthy fats and protein, there is also a surprisingly high amount of vitamin C. Vitamin C is very important in keeping our skin healthy by protecting and boosting collagen and serves as an overall antioxidant for the body. In addition to vitamin C, it also contains vitamin A, B vitamins and magnesium.

The Pitaya Smoothie Bowl contains dragon fruit, almond mylk and coconut oil.  As for its topping, it includes ingredients such as bee pollen, granola, cacao nibs, desiccated coconut, chia seeds, banana and strawberry.

As mentioned over and over again, it’s loaded with antioxidants, fibre, magnesium, and vitamin B for a super-nutritious meal or snack. Rich in antioxidants, they contain vitamin C, polyunsaturated fatty acids, and several B vitamins for carbohydrate metabolism, as well as carotene and protein.

Beet Aid for health

By: Zalikha

Red commonly symbolizes love and energy. Both months of May and June significantly celebrates Mother’s Day and Father’s Day and Parents Day, we are excited to announce our juice of the month for these upcoming celebrations is, Beet Aid. Spread the power of love with our Beet Aid cold-pressed juice to improve overall health. This bottle of love contains carrot, apple, beet, lemon and ginger. As you might notice, the dark red is a mix of all powerful food packed with nutrients, help to increase stamina, improve blood flow and blood pressure. Not forgetting it’s also high in iron and antioxidant with anti-aging and anti-cancer properties.

This month also coincide with many runs and marathon events be it international or local, in conjunction with these activities we highly recommend Beet aid as a supplement for your body. Some research shows, beetroot juice appears to improve athletic performance significantly due to the active ingredient, nitrate found in beet juice. Nitrate is absorbed by our body and breakdowns to nitrite and then to nitric oxide which functions to improve muscle oxygenation during exercise and enhances exercise tolerance during long-term endurance exercise.

Not forgetting, Ramadhan is also around the corner. Pamper your body ahead of time with some good energy from our Beet Aid juice. Beetroot is among the best ingredients from all our juices during Ramadhan to help you to stay energize all day long.

Enjoy Beet Aid for a whole 2 months of May and June!

Spread the power of love, stay healthy and strong!
