Liquiteria (New York, N.Y.)
Frequented by health-conscious stars like Russell Simmons, Liquiteria specializes in a wide variety of cleanses to meet your individual dieting needs. Try a "Brain Teaser" (carrot, kale, apple, red cabbage, parsley, ginger, lecithin, & Energy Memory) to help boost memory power, or if you're really looking to clean out your system go with a "Royal Flush" (pineapple, pear, ginger, aloe vera & Live Kidney Lymph Detox). Don't live in the neighborhood? Their bottled juices are available for delivery nationwide.

Surrey Cafe and Juice Bar (New Orleans, L.A.)
Every day Surrey Cafe and Juice Bar tries to have at least one special juice that features a fruit or vegetable that is in season. For the better part of the year they have an orange-mango-pineapple blend. Mangoes improve digestion while oranges lower cholesterol and boost energy. Pineapples are helpful for weight reduction as well.
Da Juice Bar (Glendale, Calif.)
Other than having a great juice selection, Da Juice Bar is a favorite stop for locals grabbing lunch. Some patron favorites are the acai smoothie and the 'Body Cleanse' smoothie that you watch them make with fresh carrots and beets. They also have fresh coconut that they cut in front of customers. You know it's fresh when it's being chopped per order.
