Village Juicery – Detox Tonic 

A tonic is a fortifying beverage of spring water, cold pressed juice and the earth’s most potent herbs and superfoods. An all-natural, organic boost for feelings of vigor and well-being.”

Ontario Spring Water, Lime, Lemon, Grapefruit, Orange, Raw Honey, Activated Charcoal, Milk Thistle, Nettle Leaf

Key Ingredients:

Activated Charcoal: Virgin coconut shells are burned at high temperatures to create a highly absorbent carbon with millions of tiny pores that bind to and help eliminate substances in your system.

Milk Thistle: Ancient herb that contains silymarin, used as a prescribed medication in modern Europe to support those recovering from liver damage.

Stinging Nettle: This wild perennial, naturally covered in stinging hairs, is processed into an extract often used by naturalists for purification and pain relief.

This tonic tastes amazing and you’ll really enjoy it if you’re a fan of citrus.

Village Juicery – Be Nourished

“Not the biggest fan of green juice? Well, I may be the gentle introduction you need. I am an excellent source of vitamin A, C and K and contain B-6, thiamine, riboflavin and folate without ever twisting your cheeks. I’m high in magnesium, manganese, and offer a great source of iron.  I balance dark greens with whole red and green apples that bring natural sweetness. Don’t worry, give me a try. I’ve got the nutrition you need and I promise not to overwhelm.”

Granny Smith Apple, Cucumber, Gala Apple, Kale, Swiss Chard

A refreshing and pretty standard green juice.

*Kombucha is controversial in the sober world, as it does contain trace amounts of alcohol. Trust your own judgement on this one.*

Brew Dr. Kombucha – Clear Mind

“A fan favorite, this brilliant blend of rosemary, mint, sage and green tea is bright and invigorating.”

Kombucha Benefits: may improve liver function* (consult a doctor if you have liver problems before drinking Kombucha), improves gut function and promotes healthy bacteria, weightloss and possible type 2 diabetes benefits – source.

Bottle Green – Handpicked Elderflower

“Discover the light, delicate taste of hand-picked elderflowers. Perfect company for those warm summer days and relaxing summer evenings.”

Bottle Green – Ginger & Lemongrass

“An enticing far-eastern blend of fragrant lemongrass and piquant ginger. Perfect with hot water on a cold winter’s night. It also adds a wonderful extra bite and depth to stir fries or salad dressings.”

These sparkling waters are the perfect substitute if you’re usually a white wine drinker.
