Nekter Juice Bar has recently opened to the public and is located in Cave Creek right next to the local Sprouts.

“I think it is a good location for Nekter because Scottsdale and Cave Creek are so wealthy, and deciding to locate here was a good idea to get more customers,” said Alaina Rosas, a new customer.

Founded in 2010, Nekter had the idea that “healthy” can be affordable, and taste good as well. It is most known for their variety of juices, bowls and smoothies. Juicing is one of the easiest ways to get your daily servings of fruits and veggies in every day. Raw juice is digested quickly and easily, allowing us the opportunity to increase the body’s natural digestive efficiencies.

   They have two different juice cleanses, the first being the celery cleanse, it’s a type of celery juice meant to be drank once a day on top of a regular diet and is meant to be used as a detox to clean your body and get rid of toxins. The second cleanse is a six day cleanse with six different juices.

“This cleanse takes a little more will power but I’ve tried them both and I would have to say I think they’re effective, they’re very good for a body reset, especially if you’re looking to start a diet and start a healthier lifestyle,” said Randy Shipley, the owner of Nekter juice bar.

The celery detox is the most recent thing added to their menu, it includes celery juice and has been reformulated to provide bloat-reducing, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-rich health benefits.  The Nekter cleanse is a way to break your body from processed foods habits and can help decrease your sugar cravings.

“I’m glad there’s a new healthier option for food around this area rather than the other typical fast food,” said Aubrey Ozaki, a long time customer.

Juicing is used to nourish the body with minerals, vitamins, and living enzymes.
