It’s not quite the end of the week but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a few shots! That’s right, I just gave you permission to drown your sorrows in one-ounce liquid servings of happiness… Non-alcoholic of course! (;

The shots I’m talking about are so much better for you. And the energy they bring wont leave you with a headache the morning after! Here at Shaka Pressed Juice, we have three delicious and nutritious options to help spark your interest; Ginger, Turmeric, and Wheat Grass.

We love having options not only to offer something for everyone’s taste, but because there are a diverse range of benefits packed into every little shot- each more different than the next. The shots here at shaka are a great choice because they are never watered down and never have sugar added. They are a great way to quickly boost your immune system if you’re feeling a cold come on, and a fast way to help out your digestive track for a tummy ache. Below are some direct benefits our different shots have;


Turmeric: (Ingredients: Turmeric juice with a dash of ginger and orange juices.)This shot is for the juicers that like their strong flavors! The extra dash of ginger in this shot provides all the benefits listed below under the Ginger shot, as well as some great vitamin C from the orange. Turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant. A great shot to pair with any weight-loss journey you may be embarking on, as well as an aide for any injuries.


Ginger: (Ingredients: Ginger juice with a dash of lemon and pineapple juices to gently cushion the sweet burn.)  Disclaimer: Drinking pure ginger juice with no water or other juice forms added can cause serious burns to the esophagus that may require medical treatment. Always opt for a gentler form of ginger juice to avoid injury.) Ginger is a great way to help flush your system as well as combat nausea… Expecting mommies I’m talking to you! What better way to deal with morning sickness? Avoid all the pills and medication that you’re not quite sure about and stick to a natural remedy. Another great benefit is that ginger has been suggested to relieve muscle pain and soreness as well as give you a huge energy spike (A good way to avoid processed energy drinks)! Here at Shaka juice we hold healthy living and exercise to a high standard, come by for a ginger shot after your work out to help your muscles heal (Did you know we offer a 10% discount to individuals that come in sweaty? Just mention the 10% sweat discount to your cashier at check out!)


Wheatgrass: (Ingredients: Pure wheatgrass juice.) What isn’t wheatgrass good for? Let’s face it, when it comes to wheatgrass you love it or your hate it- there is no in between. Luckily it seems that this little green monster seems to be a shop favorite, and one of our most frequently requested menu items! (Hurry in, we tend to run out fast between produce deliveries!) Wheatgrass juice is an effective healer because it contains all minerals known to man, and vitamins A, B-complex, C, E, l and K. It is rich in protein, and contains 17 amino acids. Wheatgrass juice contains up to 70% chlorophyll, which is an important blood builder. Chlorophyll is the first product of light and, therefore, Wheatgrass contains more light energy than any other food element. It’s a no brainer why this is the most popular shot on the menu- its like liquid magic!

If you need something fast to wake you up or boost your energy, give a wellness shot a try. They might not be the tastiest or the most filling in comparison to other juices, but they are the fastest way to receive maximum health benefits. On top of that, I’ll tell you right now they are the magic hangover cure. I always get people I get rolling in Saturday afternoon, sunglasses and sweatpants adorned, asking for something to take the pain of last night’s transgressions away. Take one or two of these babies and you will be ready to head into work or school on time looking refreshed. Headaches-be-gone! Pair with one of our sweeter 16 ounce concoctions to wash it down easy. “Paradise Punch” seems to be a favorite chaser… And I’ve heard it makes for a great mixer too! (;

Living a healthy lifestyle is important, our body is the only one we get and therefore it should be a priority to fill it with healthy foods. However, living a stressed lifestyle is equally unhealthy, we all need those nights to loosen up and make a few mistakes! Better to do it while you’re young and able… I hear senior bars are few and far between- and not as hopping as you’d think! So feel free to get a little crazy, as long as you promise to come into Shaka for some hydration the morning after. On that note, maybe stick to juice shots until the weekend has officially arrived!

Happy juicing! And see you soon!
