When it comes to juice, all Austinites know the place to be is Juiceland. Along with their awesome selection of juices and ingredients comes an awesome business filled with caring people.
Thanks to Juiceland, any time you go into any of their Austin locations this month and order the “You Maqui Me Crazy,” 50% of the profits will go towards Dub Academy as part of their Feel Good, Do Good campaign. So why would you want to drink this juice? Here are a few reasons:
Raspberries – Raspberries are a great source of Vitamin C, manganese and dietary fiber.
Bananas- Not only chock full of potassium, but bananas have also been found to help with depression, counteract calcium loss, and even improves the quality of your blood.
Watermelon- It’s the best part of summer for some, and helps keep you active during the hot months by strengthening that immune system up. Besides making you invulnerable to the elements, watermelon also helps prevent constipation as well as keeping you hydrated and full of electrolytes.
Mint- With its strong and refreshing aroma, mint is often used as an effective treatment for not only bad breath, but nausea as well. The aroma from the mint has also been found to clear up sinuses.
Maqui Berries- It’s been a common ingredient in juices, now even in capsules and supplement powders, Maqui berries offer a wide range of benefits. Relieving high blood pressure, aiding with arthritis pains, and lowering the body’s cholesterol levels are what can be expected from this powerful little berry.
Flax Meal- Flax meal, also known as flax seed, is the driving force of fiber in this awesome, juicy concoction. Along with the dietary aid the fiber brings, flax meal helps with hypertension, as well as lowering the possibility and spread of melanoma tumors.
The “You Maqui Me Crazy” is available in three sizes priced at $4.50/$5.75/$7.50, and again with each purchase Dub Academy will receive 50% of the profits! With every other sip you take, you are contributing to the artists of tomorrow.
