About Meztisoy

The Yañez family redesigned the interior layout to mimic a market that you would see in various Latino countries. It’s a one-stop-shop where you can get fresh fruits and vegetables, grass-fed meat, poultry, fish, cheeses and Mexican-style soy creations from the deli, an affordable meal at the café with a vegan-focused menu, also experience the opportunity to try fresh juice and elixers. Not only does Meztisoy offer the organic products, but the store also has a built-in juice bar. Such a gift to have Meztisoy in Pilsen! Juice Menu

Showing Our Love & Support for Prader-Willi Syndrome. Its a genetic disorder characterized by obesity. PWS typically causes low muscle tone, short stature if not treated with growth hormone, incomplete sexual development, and a chronic feeling of hunger that, coupled with a metabolism that utilizes drastically fewer calories than normal, can lead to excessive eating and life-threatening obesity, among many other medical and developmental issues. PWS is the most common known genetic cause of life-threatening obesity. Prader-Willi syndrome is a life-long condition and currently there is no cure.

Defective or missing portions of paternal genes responsible for Prader-Willi syndrome usually occur randomly. Prader-Willi syndrome can be prevented by early detenction. In a small number of cases, a genetic mutation inherited from the father may cause Prader-Willi syndrome.

Did you know Clint Hurdle, Texas Rangers Hitting Coach is a proud father of beautiful Maddie with PWS. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-ECQ7s9B2A
