Juicey Lucy's in North Panhandle News

Take a look at the piece written about Juicey Lucy's published in the September/October issue of North Panhandle News:

"Each Sunday, NoPa residents flock to Juicey Lucy's at the Grove and Divisadero Farmers' Market to get their serving of organic, fresh-pressed fruit and vegetable juices. While many call her Lucy, It's really Lisa Bach who brings the juice to NoPa.

Juicey Lucy's (juiceylucys.com) opened in 1994 in North Beach and has expanded to several farmers' markets, besides managing the production and delivery of individually catered juice cleanses.

"Juicey Lucy has been part of the farmers' market movement since the mid-90s and it's a vital part of who we are as a business," said Lisa Bach. "At its heart, Juicey Lucy's is all about building healthy communitites, and farmers' markets are an integral part of that process, allowing people to connect to the farmers who grow their food and participate in the local economy."

An artist, alchemist, and healthy lifestyle advocate, Lisa has served more than one million ounces of juice. Every one of them is pressed for an individual customer, either at their market booth or in their kitchen, where they prepare for daily deliveries at 6:00am.

"The NoPa market is special to us and we are honored to be part of creating a healthy and thriving community. It's great to be part of the change that is happening here," said Lisa. "Our staff also has a soft spot for the NoPa market because it has so many handsome men as customers. On a rainy day, it sure makes us smile!"

Red Raspberry and Hibiscus Restorative Tea; reproductive tonic for Men and Women

Juicey Lucy's Restorative Teas have been a popular addition to our Market Juice Bar, and give you another way to nourish your body from the inside out! Herbs and spices have profound health benefits and make a great addition to your healthy lifestyle.

One of our warm-weather favorites is Red Raspberry and Hibiscus tea. As well as being very high in Vitamin C, both of these ingredients act as natural refrigerants, cooling your body in hot weather or overheated rooms.

Red Raspberry is well known for it's effect on the female reproductive system, alleviating cramps and reducing heavy blood flow. It's helpful during pregnancy to reduce nausea and prevent miscarriage. In new mothers, it can prevent depression and increase breast milk production.

It also has a beneficial effect on the male reproductive system; promoting sperm viability, cleansing the body of excess estrogens, balancing androgens and testosterone, and supporting the adrenal system.

In addition to it's use as a reproductive tonic, Red Raspberry is high in Potassium, Calcium, and Vitamins A, B, C, and E. It is antiseptic, anti-diarrheal, and antimalarial, and can alleviate canker sores, urinary tract complaints, thrush, cold sores, and reduce the symptoms of gum disease.

Hibiscus has been shown to dramatically lower blood pressure and blood cholesterol, and is a powerful amylase inhibitor, which means it reduces the amount of sugar absorbed by the body, making it useful in managing Diabetes. Hibiscus is also an excellent antioxident and may help manage depression and mood swings. It has been shown that the anthocyanins in Hibiscus slow the growth of precancerous cells.

Come enjoy some of this delicious flowery tea at Juice Lucy's Farmer's Market locations!
