Are you a juice enthusiast? Natural fruit and vegetable juices are extremely popular, as studies show they may provide numerous health benefits. Skip the blender and grab some ready-to-drink functional beverages in the Strack & Van Til Produce Department.

You’ll find functional beverages that may help with heart health, immunity, digestion and energy. Made with natural ingredients, they don’t use additives or preservatives to provide clean, healthy drinks. Many choices are cold-pressed – a process that retains more nutrients and antioxidants than conventionally processed juices.

Produce Department Director Bob Hylka noted that these functional beverages are minimally processed. “That translates into fresh, clean label juice.”

Check out the Strack & Van Til Produce Department for a wide selection of grab-and-go juices:

Beetology – Beets are associated with enhancing heart health, blood pressure and your brain. Beetology 100% cold-pressed, organic juices are non-GMO and made from all-natural ingredients (not from concentrate), with no artificial colors or flavors. Best of all, there are no added sugars. Choose from five flavor combinations: Beet + Veggie, Beet + Tropical Fruit, Beet + Lemon + Ginger, Beet + Cherry and Beet + Berry

Cherrish – Studies show that tart cherries’ antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties may help relieve arthritis symptoms, reduce the risk of gout flareups, add to muscle recovery after workouts, improve sleep patterns and play a role in heart and gut health.

All-natural Cherrish juices are made with U.S.-grown Montmorency tart cherries from Michigan and a small amount of sweet Bing cherries from Washington.
