November 09, 2017 // Franchising.com // SANTA ANA, Calif. - Nékter Juice Bar, the emerging leader in the modern juice bar movement, has fortified its lineup of cold-pressed bottled juices and juice cleanses, adding a new, curated selection of superfoods, herbs, prebiotics, and probiotics for optimal health benefits. Known for its authentically fresh, clean and nutrient-rich juices, smoothies, acai bowls and healthy snacks, the expanded selection represents Nékter’s continual emphasis on menu innovation to support and inspire sustainable healthy lifestyles in the communities it serves.
The eight new, cold-pressed options and cleanses have been designed to not only taste delicious but to also provide exceptional, functional health benefits. Among the new ingredients is super herb Ashwagandha, which has been used for more than 3,000 years to relieve stress, increase energy levels and improve concentration. It can also help lower blood sugar, reduce cortisol and help fight symptoms of anxiety and depression. Another new ingredient is Camu Camu, a super food found throughout the Amazon rain forests of Peru and Brazil, and with 60 times the Vitamin C of an orange, it can help strengthen the immune system and reduce inflammation.
Prebiotics and probiotics have also been added to support healthy digestive systems. Probiotics help control the growth of harmful bacteria, while prebiotics serve as fuel for probiotics, increasing their functional benefits.
“We’ve amped up our selection of cold-pressed juices and cleanses with powerful new superfoods, super herbs, prebiotics and probiotics that help keep our bodies at their best,” said Steve Schulze, co-founder and CEO, Nékter Juice Bar. “Our guests now have the best of both worlds: great taste plus optimal health benefits that can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere.”
Nékter’s eight new, cold-pressed options include:
Nékter’s Classic and Advanced Cleanse programs, which were designed to help encourage healthy eating habits, were also enhanced with similar functional ingredients. The beginner-friendly, purifying Classic Cleanse helps eliminate sugar cravings and increase appetites for healthy, whole foods. This cleanse now includes Turmeric Citrus Skinny Lemonade with Camu Camu to help kickstart the metabolism, and Calming Greens with Ashwagandha to help balance blood sugar and soothe stress and anxiety to help power through the evening.
Nékter’s Advanced Cleanse is formulated with less fruits and more nutrient-dense, purifying veggies to help stabilize blood sugar, curb pesky cravings and flood the body with essential vitamins and nutrients. This cleanse now also includes Turmeric Citrus with Camu Camu to help boost immunity, fight inflammation and jumpstart the metabolism. Both cleanses are available in one, three or five-day options. Guests can also choose to build their own cleanses based on their specific preferences or wellness goals.
