What was the inspiration behind PressedPlus Protein Juice?
Major car crash, broken neck, open-heart surgery. My body has been subjected to all of these. The one thing I have learnt facing the major challenges in my life is that the body is an amazing machine. If you fuel it and move it correctly, nourish it from within, regeneration is possible. I want everyone to have the chance to discover what true health and vitality is all about. These are the juices I used to help me recover and get into the best shape of my life.
What makes your juice so different from the others?
What makes our product unique is the high protein content contained within the PressedPlus protein juices. As it is in a liquid form, it is very easy for the body to digest, requiring less energy to receive the nutrients for ultimate cellular rejuvenation. This is not a synthetic or processed product, but revolutionary whole food based nutrition as nature intended to help you GET FIT FROM WITHIN!
Why do I need fats in my juice? Will they make me fat?
Not these fats! Our current juices, Lean on Green, Holy Cacao and Bloody Rawsome all have avocado and Anutra Chia Flour in them for several reasons. Firstly…avocado and chia…yum! Secondly and more importantly, your body needs healthy fats. Avocados and chia contain monounsaturated fats that are not only heart healthy, but also help to curb hunger. Thirdly, they help give the juices their creamy texture. How could you not have avocado and chia in your juice!
Are your bottles environmentally friendly / BPA Free?
We are currently using glass bottles which are environmentally friendly and we are moving to BPA-free plastic bottles as they are lighter and safer for transport.
Why do you use chia in your juices?
Chia is a superfood with numerous health benefits. It can be added to almost anything - including smoothies, juices and food - and has very little taste, so will not overpower or spoil the flavour of the product.
Why do you use liquid Stevia in your juices?
Stevia is a herbal shrub-like plant native to Paraguay. For over 1,500 years, people in South America have used fresh and dried stevia leaves to sweeten food, herbal medicines, and beverages (such as yerba mate). Today it is extracted to make a natural herbal sweetener. The plant contains sweet compounds known as steviol glycosides. Steviol glycosides, when extracted, are between 150-350 times sweeter than sugar. We use a cold pressed form that contains zero calories, carbohydrates, sugars, and is zero on the glycemic index.
Why does the juice have a slight grittiness?
Because we use a raw organic fermented brown rice protein in our juices, the slight grittiness is the enzymes and fibre still intact as the protein powder has not been denatured. This is a great thing and does your body good as it delivers the enzymes and nutrients that are needed for superior health.
Are your juices suitable during pregnancy?
Yes! we use an Australian organic fermented brown rice protein powder in our juices, which is a safe and effective way to add extra protein to your diet during pregnancy. The only ingredient present is sprouted whole grain brown rice, meaning there’s absolutely nothing dangerous about consuming this completely raw, hypoallergenic, plant based protein powder. We do recommend that you consult a health care professional prior to adding any new food or juice into your diet.
Are PressedPlus Protein Juices just for gym junkies?
