Lots of fruit juices and very little veggie contents. Micro amounts of veggies!

My husband buys them because he's on the road for work the majority of his day and it's hard to find options that are healthy all the time, but more and more places are selling Naked juices.

That Green Machine drink is an excellent option and is great, either by itself or if you want to add it to your smoothie. Great choice. But be careful of some of the others, though. You have to read the label of each Naked that you want to drink. Some are better than others. Some of their drinks (like the Blue Machine) contain niacinamide. This isnít generally bad, however, too much of it can cause problems with gallbladder, gout, and can exacerbate liver and kidney functioning. I don't know what the threshhold is and how much is too much. So I avoid it altogether.

Also, some of them, such as the Berry Veggie Power Garden for instance, contain an enzyme called pyridoxine hydrochloride (which is in the B6 family). This has been known to cause health complications. On the mild side it has caused nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, loss of appetite, headache, tingling, sleepiness in some people. On the more serious side, it has caused brain and nerve problems.

And some of their products contain milk (like the Protein Zone Double Berry, Protein Zone Banana Chocolate, or the Protein Zone Mango for instance) so they're not vegan.

But, many of the drinks are all natural ingredients. So, as long as you focus on those, you should be fine. Just read the labels carefully.

I'm going to post this to a few teams so sorry in advance for the duplication!

At the market today, I saw a big cooler full of Naked juices. I have seen these at my local grocery store but they only carry a few varieties and for whatever reason, I've never had any desire to try one. But today I bought one small bottle of the "Green Machine" to try. In fact I added some (just slightly less than a 1/4th of the container) to my green smoothie. I also tried it (pretty good.)

Do you think this is a reasonable alternative for those of us who don't have a juicer (yet)?

It stated "no sugar added" and all the ingredients looked reasonable. Also said non-gmo, vegan, no preservatives.

Whatchallthink????
