Suja Juice

Juicing is all the rage. And for good reason, a 16 ounce bottle of juice can pack anywhere from 2-3 pounds of fresh fruit and veggies. But not all juices are created equal. Suja presses only organic fruits and vegetables in a hydraulic cold-press, which extracts the maximum amount of goodness, i.e., vitamins and minerals, because it doesn’t heat up like most juice presses, which alters the content.

Not only can you buy individual bottles at a store near you, Suja offers home delivery of their Lifestyle Packages throughout San Diego County. These packages range from a 20 Bottle Beginner Pack for those just testing the water ($179), to the Basic Month which includes 56 juices, or two juices per day ($462), or the Regular Monthly delivery of 120 juices, or 30 juices per week, ($960). To place your order visit, or call (855) TRY-SUJA.
