Fall offerings from The Juice Standard, Las Vegas’ swanky organic juicery, continue throughout November in honor of National Alzheimer’s Awareness month.
The juicery has introduced turmeric-infused juice blends, new “shots” and a harvest-inspired organic specialty espresso drink to both celebrate the flavors of the season and bolster brain health.
The juice bar, with locations at 4555 S. Fort Apache Rd., and 2530 St. Rose Pkwy., offers an array of juices and nut milks that are cold pressed from 100 percent organic produce. Several signature recipes include turmeric, a root vegetable popular in curries, which contains curcumin, a powerful and well-documented alleviator of joint inflammation that is sought for its positive effects on cognitive function in Alzheimer’s disease patients. According to Jamie Stephenson, The Juice Standard’s CEO and co-founder, drinking turmeric juice is a highly effective way to absorb curcumin, especially when it’s paired with a pinch of cracked black pepper. The curcumin in turmeric acts as a bodyguard against molecules that aim to cause chronic inflammation, and black pepper increases the body’s ability to absorb curcumin by 1000 percent.
The Juice Standard’s turmeric-containing juices and nut milks include:
- Bee On Point – a blend of cucumber, celery, carrot, apple, kale, beet, dandelion, radish, lemon, ginger, turmeric and black pepper
- Bee True To You – a sweet-yet-spicy juice with cucumber, lemon, ginger, turmeric, honey, and cayenne
- Bee WHealthy™ – the juicery’s signature recipe featuring cucumber, celery, romaine, kale, apple, dandelion, parsley, lemon, ginger, and turmeric
- Bee Legendary – an eggnog-inspired nut milk made with raw cashew, raw brazil nut, raw walnut, turmeric, ginger, vanilla bean, cardamom, nutmeg, clove, pink Himalayan salt, cracked black pepper, and raw local honey
Throughout November, The Juice Standard will also offer $5 turmeric shots, where juicers may get a strong dose of the powerful ingredient combined with oil of oregano, ginger and apple cider vinegar, all of which combine to promote full absorption of turmeric’s curcumin.
And for a limited time, until organic pumpkin leaves for another season, coffee lovers can spice up their typical Bee Invincible with the flavors of fall. For an additional $1, the newly released Harvest Spice Bee Invincible includes organic espresso, house-made pumpkin purée, cinnamon, clove, vanilla, ginger, raw agave, cardamom, coconut oil, and your choice of grass-fed butter or ghee.
