When we started out on our journey to create a super green juice for Aussies, we not only wanted to create a juice that had all the benefits of the best juices on the planet, but also wanted it to taste amazing......simple right?
Now obviously taste is subjective, and each person has different likes and dislikes.
So to accomplish this, we simply focused on these two things.....taste, and health benefits.
Why Did We Add Tumeric To Our Super Green Powder?
Surely that wouldn't help the taste?
Creating The Best Tasting Super Green Juice
We sampled many of the other super green products on the market. While many were palatable, some were down right nasty. It's no good having a healthy product if it's difficult to drink. So this became a priority.
As we were just starting out, we literally started blending ingredients on the kitchen bench. At one point we had so many different blended samples going at once that we got them all mixed up and had to start again. We ended up with 3 blends out of about 50 that we created.
Then we started the process of asking anyone who was game to taste test the samples. Everyone from the Coles delivery man, to my mother in law (even the family dog......not kidding but a whole other story) to narrow down the 3 blends to 1.
Over the period of about a month over 200 people sampled the blends and at the end of that there was a clear winner.
That clear winner is now Curavita Green Boost.
Creating A Super Healthy Drink
Not only did it need to taste great, but we wanted every ingredient, bar none, to have the super health benefits we were after. In combination, Curavita Green Boost can help you live a healthier, more energetic life.
