Something new emerged in Belgrade. It’s a small New York City like shop that sells cold-press juices (hladno cedjeni sokovi) and promotes healthy way of life. Cold-press juices are part of this bouncing concept that appeared in New York some time ago and made a total blast on the market. It is designed for all of us, modern people who don’t always find time to eat with one simple goal to boost energy and health in the most natural way.
For New Yorkers cold-press juices were love at the first sight. And can you imagine way?
Cold-press juices can serve as a part of detox process or as individual consumption. In both cases, juices can completely replace meals, for example one green juice contains 2.7-3 kg of squeezed fruits or vegetables. Technology of cold press is the only one that allows replacement of an average meal since it includes a great deal of minerals, vitamins and enzymes in one single bottle of juice. Now juices are available in Belgrade. Be sure that those are not some crappy products, all cold press detox juices have undergone testing at the Institute of Public Health of Serbia Dr. Milan Jovanovic BATUT and received official confirmation of their safety and quality. Packages are practical and well designed.
I consume them myself, therefore I would like to suggest some of my favorites.
The entire detox line is quite helpful if you want to lose weight, stay fit and improve your immune system. There’s five different bottles packed by numbers. Juices contain various herbs and serve as meals and energy boosters. Juices are delicious, but in the same time raw , without additives, sugar and gluten-free.
For individual consummation you can try the Wheatgrass ( hlorofi) shot-a daily dose of espresso without caffeine, Cold pressed milk will help you to struggle with lactose intolerance or gastritis and charge up your body with proteins. Feel free to consume it before or after the gym.
I would recommend also something called Chia drink to shape your body, Cold brewed coffee without acid to stay awake and focused and Vukano to boost your immune system. If you are suffering of this persistent and annoying bacteria called candida try Origano and Di-Fense.
Since, Still in Belgrade is a club magazine it would be stupid not to mention Mamurlek- basically a hangover killer. This green, a bit spicy drink will save you from nausea, vomiting and severe headache and it’s 100% natural product that can also charge up your masculinity, if you know what I mean.
All products are organic and won’t make your nerves jump unlike the most of energy drinks we usually buy in the supermarkets.
You can order cold press juices by phone or just drop by this nice shop called Coldpressok in the city center.
Address: Dobracina 23a, Stari Grad, 11000 Belgrade
