Q. Can I drink your juices if I am a diabetic?
A. While you should check with your Doctor first, the answer is usually “NO” because of the amount of natural sugar in the fruit that is used to make our juices. Twelve Essentials and Lemon Love are two sugar free Suja options that many diabetics do well with.
Q. Can I drink Suja if I am lactose intolerant?
A. Of course! There are no dairy products in Suja.
Q. Can I drink Suja if I am on a Gluten free diet?
A. Yes, again! We are gluten free. In fact there is nothing added to our juice but juice!
Q. I’ve heard fiber is good for you and these juices don’t have much fiber.
A. Fiber is great for regulating and cleaning out your digestive tract. However there is a significant energy expenditure that your body undergoes when it has to separate juice from fiber. By drinking cold pressed juices, your body gives your digestive tract a break and easily assimilates the nutrients into your bloodstream. Often times, the good enzymes that are in fiber are never broken down and absorbed into your bloodstream as they are excreted.
Q. Can I do this if I am on blood thinners?
A. Generally the answer is “NO”. Our products are rich in Vitamin K, which is known to produce blood clotting proteins. However, you should check with your Doctor.
