Brighton Born & Bred

A great write up in City Magazine! NJC tops the chart as the most competitive of these premium cold-pressed juicing brands!
My new favourite thing – sipping on a litre of warm water with the juice of a whole squeezed lemon and a pinch of pink Himalayan salt BEFORE breakfast. Here’s 5 reasons why you need to be drinking this every day:
1) Lemon is a rich source of vitamin C, an essential nutrient to protect the body against immune deficiencies. It is also a great source of citric acid, potassium, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium.
2) The pectin fibre from a lemon is super beneficial for colon health, aiding digestion and flushing out toxins
3) This litre of liquid will help maintain the bodies PH levels and replenish the bodies salts.
4) For the vain amoung us (hands up!) it acts as a huge benefit to the skin and helps prevent the formation of wrinkles – hooray!
5) And finally, it just tastes so clean and fresh that you just know it is doing you a world of good. Cheers!

A quick word on the value of adding herbs to your diet. Herbs can be termed as any plant used for flavouring food, medicine or perfume. Culinary herbs differ from vegetables in that, like spices, they are used in small amounts to provide flavour instead of substance to food. Herbs are renowned for their healing properties and modern science is fast discovering them to be a weapon to help fight disease. Here’s a great article on the benefit of a few easily-accessible top herbs.

WHAT Air FAB Night Out!
What a night! We headed down to support our event and it actually went way beyond all our expectations - we didn’t stop laughing all night. Rockers took to the stage and proudly exhibited their air guitar prowess. We all had our favourites but on the night there was only one winner, whose gold lame outfit nearly outshone his actual air guitar moves! Can’t wait for next years championships!

Kale us crazy but we love this green juice. Oodles of power boosting greenery with a tarty side of pineapple and a flourish of highly rated healing parsley. Great for muscle building and endurance, all that iron and calcium will leave Popeye flexing in the dust.

Hollowing out for Halloween
Pimping up our pumpkin and buttering up our squash for the scary season.
It really would be a true horror to let any of these autumnal goodies go to waste. If you can't face roasting, stewing or cooking it all up -simply juice it. Throw it all into the mix and drink up the benefits of the super rich antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Remember, pumpkins are not just for decorating your porch, don't miss a trick, go treat yourself to one of this seasons true gifts of nature.

How level is your halo right now?
Let’s be honest, we could all do with living purer lives and you know what they say, “Cleanse the body, cleanse the soul.” Purify, the green queen in our range can do that blindfolded.
Chockablock with chlorophyll rich leafy greens and cleansing cucumber chunks, Purify is hands down a detoxifying winner. Isn't it time you cleaned up your act?

All Dressed Up and Ready To Go
As shapely as our naked bottles are, we felt it was only right to retain their dignity and do the decent thing. Now they are labelled up to the nines and ready to hit the town! Harriet the Super Brander has waved her magic wand and pulled off a design feat with more than a little zest.
Now we just need to fill these babies up!

Shake It Baby
You should meet our farmer. He is a real hunk of brawn who, despite his noticeable need for a mini mani, is constantly planting to meet our demand. What a guy! His organic goodies ensure that our juice is the purest it can be.
The real deal – 100% natural. We wouldn’t settle for anything less, and nor should you. In fact, as a general rule, you should only settle for juice that settles. All natural juice separates – this is what shows its authenticity.
So you know what to do people – shake like you’ve never shaked before … shake the hell out of your juice…shake it like a Polaroid picture…

A New Guru Makes Two
Lynsey has joined the NJC Nutrition Guru team.
Lynsey would love to wear harem pants and live on a self-contained vegan commune but there would be nowhere to plug in her hair straighteners.
In the real world Lynsey can be found floating around her tumbling down cottage in a haze of Cacharel and raw cacao dreaming of Tokyo and feeding her manga and anime habit.
Lynsey has her hands full balancing her twin boys, her two furry babies and her guilty indulgence, eating peanut butter straight from the jar - but lets keep that between you and I.

Harriet - The Super Brander
Harriet of Aesop is literally a living, breathing ideas generator – a true creative through and through.
Every brand has a story and, with more than a pinch of patience on her behalf, Harriet really is bringing ours to life.
Between branding, Harriet finds the time to whip up woolen creations that are being snapped up by London fashionistas faster than she can knit. A very busy bee.
You may have to wait a little longer but we can’t wait to show you her work. Harriet really is transforming NJC, helping us to inject a little more fun and personality into the juicing industry.
Theres no doubt about it, Harriet makes us look good!

Alice? Alice? Who the…?
Big day for The Natural Juicing Company.
After endless pressing, blending and whirling (not to mention a very colourful mess in our kitchens) we finally got our juices approved and signed off by London’s leading Nutrition Consultant Alice Mackintosh.
A self-professed science geek who grew up in Hong Kong, Alice studied the nitty-gritty for 6 years and now consults on London’s Harley Street.
Alice is somewhat of a personality within the health industry both in front of the camera and between the sheets of the glossy magazines, as well as being a sort after speaker for health events and campaigns.
A fitness and food fanatic herself, Alice is regularly found treading the streets of London after an early morning spin class sipping on her Purify juice – always tailored with an extra shot of ginger.
Alice is so impressed with our juice blends and their impact on health and well being that she has jumped on board as our resident Nutrition Guru. What an honour! Welcome to our crazy juicing world Alice.

After so many juicy deliveries, we are now on first name terms with our postie.
Today he delivered his greatest delivery so far … the piece de resistance… the daddy of all deliveries…
Yes, after weeks of thumb twiddling and anxious pacing, our eagerly awaited Norwalk juicer finally arrived. Imported from the US, the Norwalk juicer is the Holy Grail of all juicers. It hardly needs an introduction except to say that it produces the purest juice known to man. Admittedly you can’t wear The Norwalk like a Chanel handbag but from a health perspective it’s this seasons must-have.
Oh and his name is Marty in case you were wondering.

Get To Know Us Better
Gemma Harding, founder of The Natural Juicing Company
Gemma is a human whirlwind of manicures, Miu Miu and maca powder, who leaves a trail of chia seeds in her wake. On her travels, Gemma has picked up a preference for pesto, a weakness for duck down and an inability to pack lightly.
In her hometown of Brighton, Gemma is a yummy mummy to Sienna. While Sienna naps Gemma morphs into a domestic goddess intent on fuelling her family with foods that grow from the ground or fall from the trees. Come rain or shine, every morning the Harding family awake to the whir of the juicer.
Gemma’s flair for super food juices quickly developed a fast following & have led her on a quest to deliver liquid health across the land.
Gemma is a true green warrior in dangerously high Louboutin heels.
A word from Gemma...
"Six years ago I became a juice convert and now my juicer is like a third person in my marriage.
I have completed countless cleanses over the years but I am always concerned whether my body gets everything that it needs during these plans. For this reason I started The Natural Juicing Company.
Our cleanses have all been designed and balanced by top nutritionists - and our juices actually taste great! Each of our plans are available with a personal Nutrition Guru to guide you through your cleanse in the healthiest and safest way possible, so you can rest assured that your body is getting everything that it needs. Phew!
I love juicing and juice cleansing. My health is paramount to me and like most, I just want to feel happy in my own skin.
For me, juice really is worth the squeeze."

Time to Tickle Those Taste Buds
We must’ve tasted hundreds - and we mean hundreds - of different juice blends over the last six months – some might say we have become slightly obsessed. Now its time to focus on our exact product range – cheers to that! Clink Clink!
Taste testing is officially under way, we want to make sure that our power juices taste as cool as they look. Every single bottle is jam packed with vibrant organic produce and high-density super foods – but the big question is… do they taste good?
If you have a discerning pallet and you fancy getting your juice funk on with our Nutrition Gurus, we would love to hear from you before we sign these babies off.
