Juice up!

October 21, 2015

Juicing is not a new concept, but in the recent years it has been increasingly more popular. Starting off your day with a fresh juice made first thing in the morning is a powerful way to bring healing nutrients into your body and set the tone for the day ahead.

Whether its straight celery juice, cucumber juice, or one of your own personal favorites, many of you know how amazing it can make you feel. It hydrates, nourishes, and gives you the energy to start your day. By removing the fiber, all of the nutrients in the plant’s juice—vitamins, minerals, enzymes—instantly flood your body with healing benefits.

MatchPoint NYC Café offers many juice options to help everyone feel their best:
