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. The main ingredient for pitaya bowl is of course the dragon fruits which have a surprising number of phytonutrients (rich in antioxidants) and it also contains vitamin C, polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), and several vitamin B for carbohydrate metabolism, as well as carotene and protein. 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.

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!

Elevate your mood with Chocolate Almond Mylk

 By: Wai Leng

Mental health problems are often underestimated, under diagnosed and misunderstood. According to The National Health and Morbidity Survey 2015 conducted by Minister of Health Malaysia, approximately 29.2% of Malaysians, 16 years old and above had experience some series of mental disorders including depression, anxiety, and eating disorders.

Depression affects people from all walks of life. It is more than just a mood swing, sadness or the result of chemical imbalance. Unmanaged depression can result in lack of motivation to carry out the simplest everyday task, losing the ability to feel pleasure in the things you often enjoyed and withdrawing yourself from your social relationships including family and friends.

A campaign with the title “Depression: Let’s talk” will be organized by World Health Organization on 7 April in conjunction of World Health Day to create awareness among the public to have a better understanding of depression. Remember, although depression can be treated, it is always better to prevent than to cure.

If you are feeling sad or moody for a prolong period (weeks, months or even years), we suggest that you seek help from a mental health professional or a counselor or even a doctor about treatment options and preferences.

This April, in line with World Health Day, La Juiceria would like to help keep your mental health in check with Chocolate Almond Mylk. Chocolate Almond Mylk consist of premium cocoa, almonds, cinnamon, wildflower honey, Himalayan salt and alkaline water. It is chocolatey rich yet it can do wonders to your health. Who doesn’t love anything and everything chocolate, right? So, why Chocolate Almond Mylk?

  • It elevates our mood

Cocoa contains phenylethylamine (PEA) which is the same chemical that our brain creates when we feel LOVE. PEA stimulates our brain to release good endorphins and maintain a good mood.

  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Prevent cardiovascular diseases
  • Promotes skin health
  • Prevent memory loss
  • Non-dairy alternative

Almond milk is suitable for vegetarian and people with lactose intolerance.

Happy World Healthy Day.  😛

Stress, improper diet and pollution are just some of the reasons which can affect our bodies’ ability to detoxify.

A juice detox can offer many health benefits, such as boost the immune system, promote weight loss, clearer skin, anti-bloat, anti-acne, rid constipation and more. Freshly cold-pressed fruits and vegetables are loaded with and plenty of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.

For this month, our special juice is the Omega Hydrator which made of:

  • Chia seeds
  • Lemon
  • Wildflower honey
  • Alkaline water

What is Chia seeds? Chia is an edible seed that comes from desert plant, chia-seeds-in-a-bowlsalvia hispanica. These seeds look unremarkable, until you put in liquid, they will change into a gel and double in size, due to the water-soluble fibre they contain. Chia 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 can 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. Anyone who is looking to become healthier or looking to eat more healthy foods throughout the day should look into chia seeds. Start eating chia seeds on a daily basis and for those who feels like lacking of energy and always feeling exhausted should also consider to consume chia seeds.
