Juicing is Changing Lives in the Kosher Market

Cedarhurst - Move over Tropicana! Juice is no longer just a simple drink that you buy in your local grocery store; it is no longer just a great drink for on-the-go. No, over the past few years juicing has become a ‘thing’. It’s all about cleansing and detoxing. Juices no longer just come in the basic apple and orange variety. Kale, beet, and spinach juices line the supermarket shelves, boasting exotic ingredients such as wheatgrass, cayenne pepper, and chia seeds.

The kosher market is no exception and there is one woman taking the juicing world by storm. JUS by Julie (certified by Orthodox Union) offers one, three, and five day cleanses that are enjoyed by the kosher and non-kosher market alike. Made fresh daily from only pure and raw ingredients, the JUS cleanse promises “a detox diet designed to rid the body of impurities through specially formulated drinks… JUS keep you nutritionally satiated and energized, assisting in your daily productivity, and improving your quality of life.” With three storefronts in Brooklyn and Cedarhurst, JUS delivers uniquely blended juices with names like Morning Glory and Extreme Greens to your doorstep. JUS founder and mother of five, Julie Maleh is a qualified nutritionist and developed her juices to help her own hair thinning issues. “I had energy like I never had in my life,” she says, so she began to share her drinks. Within days her phone was ringing off the hook and she now has a warehouse that blends and ships cleanses across the country. “I created a ripple effect from my one little story…and it’s really changing people’s lives,” she marvels.
