MADE with love from Juice Juice It
Drink Life into your Body!
with our cold pressed organic Broccoli shots made from fresh certified organic broccoli shoot juice. These are the baby broccoli plants, which are packed full of nutrients to support the growing plant. Even better, we only use pressure (of the super-strength variety!) to preserve our broccoli juice, meaning you know it's never been heated or frozen. Why is this so good? Well it means that all of the nutrients stay good in the juice, including the precious sulforaphane (which we'll talk more about later) So you get to enjoy nutrient packed fresh and organic broccoli juice with one convenient twist of a cap!
Broccoli is one of the cruciferous vegetables and one of the most loved of all vegetables. Curiously, each plant is a perfect example of fractal patterns, common in nature, as each plant looks like a small tree, but within the plant each floret also looks like a miniature tree. Freshly picked broccoli has a distinctive smell, which is down to the glucoraphanin, common to all cruciferous vegetables. However it smells, we should appreciate this glucoraphanin as it is what makes sulforaphane. Let's find out more about sulforaphane!
Most of us would name broccoli as one of the healthiest foods on the planet! What you may not know is that broccoli can make sulforaphane. Sulforaphane is the unique phytonutrient that is the reason broccoli gets a lot of attention. In fact, you get 100 times more sulforaphane in baby broccoli - broccoli shoots. Let's find out more...
Sulforaphane is a little known phytonutrient (a nutrient found in plants) that has been recognised by scientists as one of the most important phytonutrients after it was discovered in the 90s. Sulforaphane has been the subject of more than 2000 research studies for its health effects on many different serious health conditions, the worst of which we are not allowed to mention here! We can tell you that this amazing phytonutrient in our broccoli shots has been called:
• Activator of cellular defence
• Master antioxidant switch
• Gatekeeper for health and longevity
We at Just Juice It believe that there is no quick fix to good health which is achieved after years of eating optimally and consuming cold-pressed vegetable juice and raw foods daily.
Plentiful Vitamin C
What we really should be looking at is the benefits of young broccoli, since Just Juice It's broccoli shots are made from the juice of young broccoli, known as broccoli sprouts or broccoli shoots. Broccoli shoots, just as with all sprouts, are a nutritional power house, since they are packed full of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients ready to support the growing plant. One cup provides just 35 calories and yet 60% of our recommended daily vitamin C. Other nutrients in broccoli sprouts include folate and vitamin K and of course, the star of the show, sulforaphane which technically doesn't get made until the shoots are chopped or juiced at room temperature.
100 x More Sulforaphane!
All shoots or sprouts have a lot more nutrients than the fully mature plants because they contain all the phyto-nutrients needed to develop into the mature plant. Broccoli sprouts are special because of the sulforaphane they can make - 100 times more than mature broccoli.
Cold-Pressed Broccoli Juice
To make cold-pressed broccoli juice, broccoli shoots are cold-pressed from young plants that are at their optimum nutrition levels. The resulting broccoli shot can be drunk immediately and about 40ml or just over 1 ounce is enough to provide a generous quantity of nutrients. What's more these nutrients are highly bio-available, meaning it's easy for your body to digest them because the juice is still packed full of enzymes.
Just Juice It brings you broccoli shots that you don’t have to consume immediately as we've treated them with ultra high pressure. This miraculously slightly increases enzyme activity and ensures all those precious nutrients remain intact. Our broccoli shots are good for 6 months and you don't even have to keep them in the fridge!
