1. Energy: Wedding planning requires endurance (a truer statement has never been made!) You'll need your energy levels high in order to successfully accomplish all of the tasks that need to get done, without running yourself down.
Suggested Remedy: Greens! Leafy greens are packed with chlorophyll, which helps oxygenate the blood and promote circulation and the best way to get the most greens in one sitting is juicing, smoothies or a salad! When it comes to convenience, look no further than Suja who also offers four conveniently available green juice blends ranging from sweet like Glow, tangy like Green Supreme, mild like Fiji and earthy like Twelve Essentials.
2. Stress Management + Mood: With so much going on, it can be easy to feel stressed, overwhelmed, and anxious leading up to your wedding day. It’s important to enjoy the process and not sweat the small stuff and arming yourself with the best attitude to handle it is key.
Suggested Remedy: Citrus fruits and/or cayenne pepper. The scent of citrus has been shown to promote feelings of happiness, vitality and joy. Cayenne triggers the pain receptors in your mouth, causing a release of endorphins. Blends like Suja’s Lemon Love and Master Cleanse offer a double whammy of mood boosting goodness because they contain lemon and cayenne!
3. Skin: Every bride wants to look her very best on her wedding day, and your skin is a direct reflection of how you’re taking care of your body!
Suggested Remedy: Carrots are miracle workers because they are extremely high in beta-carotene, a strong antioxidant that helps with collagen production, cell turnover, and blemish reduction. Coconut is also great because it has antimicrobial properties which help defend skin from bacteria. To get a mega-dose of carrots, try a carrot based juice blend like Suja’s Purify, which also contains beetroot, shown to be beneficial for skin inflammation associated with redness or puffiness.
4. Confidence + Weight Management: Every bride wants to feel her very best for her most special day. It’s important to take care of yourself so you feel your best, because this day is for you to treasure and remember forever!
Suggested Remedy: Focusing the majority of your plate on fruits and veggies as the base of your meals is a great way to stay hydrated, satiated, tuned in to your hunger cues, and flood your body with powerful nutrients. If you have a hard time chomping through a large amount of veggies, juicing is a great way to pack them in easily. Juices like Suja’s Twelve Essentials that are packed with greens and without added fruit are great for brides trying to stay on track with their healthy eating objectives.
