Why is it called the pollenSHIELD, you ask? Well, as Angelo Greco, owner and juicer at the Doylestown juice and plant-based food spot, explains, all of these fruits help to lower histamine levels in the body. “If you’re exposed to something that gives you a histamine response, there’s a threshold where you’ll begin to sneeze and so on,” he says.

*Welcome to our occasional feature, The Best Thing I Ever Ate in Philly. We’re on a mission to find the most delicious, indulgent restaurant dishes for every kind of dieter—whether you’re gluten-free, vegan, raw and more.

As you probably know, nothing ruins juice season quite like paying upward of $8 for a drink only to find that it tastes like straight-up grass mixed with beet-flavored detergent. So, to help make sure your juice season goes smoothly, we asked some of our favorite folks from the Philly fitness world (you know how fitness folks love their juice) to dish on their absolute favorite juices around the city.
It’s safe to say there are a few clear stand-outs: The Juice Philly gets lots of love on this list, for both juices and juice blends (which have a more smoothie-like consistency), and Stripp’d Juice’s Jala at Ya Boy is clear winner in the green juice arena. Now, go ahead and bookmark this list, and refer to it the next time you’re thirsty. Read more »
