  • NATURAL MEDICINE: Whether slow sipping or a quick shot, Native Nectar has something to perk a body up.
I may not be the world's worst advocate for juicing, but I did write about giant onion rings yesterday. Having said that, I do enjoy the occasional healthy juice drink, and there was a time here lately where shot of cold pressed juice from Fayetteville's Native Nectar helped me out of a tight spot.

We were on the last day of a whirlwind sales trip, and I was fading fast. Delicious food had been the order of the day every day — but too much rich food amidst a lot of driving had really done a number on my constitution. I was fatigued, cranky, and damn near ready to throw in the towel.

And then we stopped by Native Nectar. And somebody handed me a small amber glass bottle and said "drink this."

I felt like Alice in Wonderland. I drank.

Immediately, a spicy, tangy elixir hit my tongue, and the warmth of ginger began to spread through my stomach with soothing, invigorating relief. I actually lifted up just a bit on my tiptoes as the concentrated shot slammed down through my spine and into my legs. I shook my head and felt immediately better. 

Native Nectar has an extensive menu of drinks, shots, cleanses, and superfood smoothies. Their cold press juice process crams three pounds of produce into every 16 oz. serving of juice. I'm pretty sure they are also secretly wizards, but despite my best attempts, I could not locate any brooms, cauldrons, or eye of newt on the premises. Despite this, I'll give Native Nectar some credit: that little shot helped settle down my angry stomach enough to get through the rest of the day, and for that, I will forever be thankful.
