Fresh and Locally Sourced: This Upstart Juice Bar Curates Its Drinks According To Your Specific Health Benefit

Words by: Miko Insame

In the perpetual heat and humidity of Manila, a refreshing drink is always welcome. Even better if the said drink is healthy and locally sourced. EVEN BETTER, however, if it was organized into specific collections for you so you can pick and choose depending on your preference to focus on getting clearer skin, aiding weight loss, or needing an extra zap of energy to get through the day.

Enter Raw Natural Juice Bar!

This up and coming juice bar opened its doors at the tail end of 2018 and has since been operating out of its flagship branch in SM Mall of Asia Arena Annex.

Even so, they seem to be on the rise, partnering up with Honestbee and offering deliveries for patrons who need their fix but can’t make the trip all the way to the arena.

Raw Natural Juice Bar ticks all of our boxes because in a city where time is definitely money and there’s definitely pressure to get everything done as quickly as possible, Raw streamlines our craving for a quick, healthy and refreshing pick-me-up at any point in the day. Their three specific collections of drinks are carefully curated into their specific health benefit, making it supremely easy for us to just grab what we need at the moment and go.

Finally, for those skincare lovers out there, Raw designed this collection specifically for you. Their Skin Series comes with five different juices that cater to different skin needs. Need a drink to help prevent skin problems from popping up? The S1 has guava, yacon, papaya, and singkamas to make a drink that’s rich in antioxidants and helps prevent skin diseases and allergies. Looking for a drinkable companion to your nightly skincare routine? Why not all of them? But maybe put some focus on the S5, with a mix of pear, papaya, and melon that improves blood circulation, fights off inflammation, and helps fight against skin infections.

Fresh and with No Preservatives

Lastly, for all of Raw’s different juice collections, they’ve maintained a principle to source locally, promote sustainability, and make their drinks as fresh as possible with a minimal amount of waste. So, for those who do end up buying a bottle of their curated drinks, remember to drink it fast or keep it chilled.

The drinks will last up to 4 days in your fridge, but only 3-4 hours at room temperature. So hey, better to drink it fast so you can get yourself another one right away!
