When on a quest for a healthier lifestyle, many turn to juices for the vitamins and enzymes they provide. With such an array of different juices on the market, it can be difficult to decipher the differences between one juice from another. However, not all juices are made the same. At Suja, their cold-pressed juices ensure the highest quality ingredients in every bottle, allowing you to treat your body right.
Suja believes that high-quality juice should be a “grocery, not a luxury.” They are creating non-GMO, chemical-free, gluten-free, filler-free and preservative-free juices that are easily accessible (and still super fresh) all around the country. Did I mention that they also taste incredible? With Suja, you can drink a flavorful juice while treating your body right, allowing you to look and feel better.
Suja started small in San Diego, California, with a group of people who shared a mutual love for health and wellness. The juices were originally made in the homes of the co-founders, who juiced fresh produce and distributed their product in reused coconut water bottles. Innovative, right? Ever since its humble beginning, the company has grown exponentially and achieved remarkable success.
Together, the founders of Suja set out on a mission to create the greatest quality juice one could buy. Who would have thought that in just the four short years since its founding in 2012, that Suja would become the nation’s fastest growing organic, cold-pressed juice company?
Anyone who casted their doubt on Suja being a success should sit back and bite their tongue because Suja was rated the #2 Most Promising Company in 2015 by Forbes.
The Secret to Suja’s One of a Kind Juice
What makes Suja so special you may ask? Most fresh juices on the market or from fresh juice bars are made with heat using centrifugal juicers, ultimately resulting in a short shelf life of 3-4 days. But with a desire to reach more clientele than just those tucked inside the city of San Diego, the founders of Suja set out to find a way to keep their juices fresher, longer.
Suja uses an incredible technology called High-Pressure Processing (HPP) to create their organic, non-GMO juices. Rather than using heat during the juicing process, cold-pressing the juice with HPP allows Suja juices to maintain all of the most important vitamins and enzymes while also allowing the product to stay fresher over a longer period time.
The extensive shelf like makes Suja juice extremely unique. Don’t mistake a longer shelf life with the idea that there must be preservatives inside. HPP prevents oxidation, a chemical reaction that often causes foods to spoil.
This unique process allows you to store Suja juices in the comfort of your own home for up to 30 days. This is a huge bonus if you don’t have time to go to a juice bar or make fresh juices daily, and let’s be honest, ain’t nobody got time for that.
I got the inside scoop from Suja themselves to find out what makes each of the four different lines of juices and smoothies so special. With seemingly endless options retailing at a variety of prices, Suja is a well-rounded company that appeals to a variety of customers wants and desires
The Suja original line consists of cold-pressured, HPP, non-GMO and organic juices and smoothies. Available at grocery stores nationwide for $3.99, you’ll have no troubles getting your hands on one. These blends range from Uber Greens, Berry Nana, to Sweet Beets, a turmeric and beet blend that’s guaranteed to give you a lift anywhere.
The Suja line even offers a One-Day Renewal, perfect for you juice cleanse rookies. The collection of three juices, Daybreak Probiotic, Noon Greens and Twilight Protein, are meant to be consumed alongside healthy mini-meals throughout the day to keep any stomach rumbling at ease. And with a meal plan provided, there is zero thinking involved.
Packed with fresh ingredients (approximately two pounds of fruits and veggies per bottle), the Suja Classic line is the perfect way to incorporate some extra nutrients into your day to day life. Coming in between $5.99-$7.99 a pop, Suja’s 16 oz juices aren’t overpriced like so many other juices out there.
Choose from 13 different energizing and nutrient-rich flavors including Twelve Essentials, a traditional no-fruit green juice loaded with alkalizing greens, Lemon Love, a low-sugar, cayenne-spiced lemonade sweetened with stevia (my personal favorite, just sayin’), and Spark, a tart cherry, raspberry and strawberry blend that is refreshing and delicious. With so many flavors, you’ll be sure to fall in love with one (or all) of them.

Available exclusively at Whole Foods and cheaper than the Classic line ($4.99 each), Suja Elements are a mix of both juices and smoothies that are not only delicious but good for you. Their smoothies are thick and creamy, leaving you satisfied and guilt-free.
Pick up Berryoxident, 24 Karat, King of Greens, or one of the other nine other flavors. Is 12 oz of juice not enough to fulfill your now inevitable juice addiction? Not a problem because Suja even offers 49 oz bottles of Power Greens, Orange and Easy Greens so you can be drinking Suja all day, every day.
Since they’ve already taken the juicing world by storm, Suja decided to create the first-ever enhanced water made with nothing but organic fruits, veggies and 2 billion CFUs of vegan probiotics per bottle. With only 10 calories and less than one gram of sugar, say goodbye to preservatives and flavorings… For these waters offer a subtle sweetness with no additives.
This enhanced water is refreshing, flavorful (Ginger Lime, Rasberry, Pineapple Lemon Cayenne, or Orange Ginger Pineapple, anyone?) and available at everyone’s favorite store… Target. Only $2.99 each, you’re getting a bang for your buck.
Why probiotics? Well, probiotics help your gut to stay healthy and keep your immune system in tip-top shape. Also seen to help clear skin, prevent allergies and colds, and even benefit oral hygiene, probiotics are incredible for your body. And with Suja incorporating them with water, you can stay hydrated and healthy all the time.
Suja’s Original Fresh Start Juice Cleanse is perfect for first timers looking to reset and rejuvenate their body. Juice cleanses can be harmful if you don’t know what you’re doing, but lucky for you, Suja gives you tips on exactly how to properly cleanse…Everything you need to know before, during and after the program.
The Original Fresh Start consists of six Suja Classic Juices and is perfect for those new to the juice cleanse. The Core Fresh Start Cleanse is geared towards the experienced juicer, as it is more greens-heavy. Delivered right to your door, both cleanses are available in one, three or five-day options.
If you live in the local delivery area in California, Suja will come pick up the box that the cleanse was delivered in to reuse. A company that’s creating incredible juices and helping the planet at the same time – could this get any better?
Their cleanses have been completed by bloggers like Gimme Some Oven and The Balanced Blonde, so definitely read up on their Suja juice cleanse experience (hint hint, they loved it) before embarking on your own Suja cleanse journey.
Suja is available at retailers nationwide so find the one nearest you so you can start sipping on their fresh, organic, flavorful, cold-pressed juices ASAP. If you’re too lazy to leave the house (we’ve all been there), Suja delivers right to your door with their latest juice subscription services.
