Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) November 15, 2012
Urban Remedy (http://www.UrbanRemedy.com) launches nationwide today to help users to fulfill their nutritional lifestyle goals. Complete packages of juices, meal replacements, and snacks are delivered to user’s homes, offices or any location of their choice. Urban Remedy is launching out of LA technology studio Science Inc. and has raised $1 million in a seed round that included Science and a group of angel investors with experience in the beverage industry.
Neka Pasquale, a certified Traditional Chinese Nutritionist, acupuncturist, healer, and entrepreneur, created Urban Remedy after years of studying the medicinal qualities of foods and creating cleanses for herself as well as friends and clients. Neka found that the best tasting and most effective recipes were those that she created in her own kitchen. Through teaming with Science Inc., Urban Remedy is taking a largely coastal trend and giving all Americans access to the benefit of fresh pressed juice and healthier nutrition through drinks and snacks.
Urban Remedy is a delicious, nutrition-based solution for anyone who is lacking weekly nutrition, or feeling tired, ill, run-down, stressed, lethargic, overweight or overloaded with rich foods and alcohol. Urban Remedy’s juice is designed to jumpstart the body’s natural healing and cleansing abilities while providing all the nutritional fortification needed to thrive.
Each 16oz juice serving is packed with hand-pressed, raw, and organic fruits and veggies and is sold as part of a cleanse, or as a perfect grab-and-go item to drink between meals. Snacks are gluten, grain, white sugar, and dairy-free and delicious. Meal drinks provide the energy of a full meal for those on the go and fill users up with protein/super foods/fruits/vegetables and keep them running on true nutrition.
“Most people eat highly processed foods that contain little to no nutritional value,” said Neka Pasquale, founder and CEO of Urban Remedy. “Our current diets aren’t making us healthier, they are contributing to a host of inflammatory health problems which are the cause of many chronic diseases in America. Urban Remedy aims to make it easier for us to access delicious nutritious products that support better health.”
Aiming to make all natural nutrition an accessible and friendly activity, users can visit the website to pick from three categories that include juices, meals, and snacks. When users scroll down, they’re presented with interesting infographics that make it easy to see which items best suit their daily health needs.
Urban Remedy juice is designed to jumpstart your body’s natural healing and cleansing abilities while providing you with all the nutritional fortification you need to thrive. Each 16 oz. juice serving is 100% raw and organic. Users can opt-in to the Urban Remedy Cleanse Program, which includes 6, 16 oz. juices per day. The Urban Remedy Cleanse Program offers 3 main cleanses; The Signature, Purify, and Super Green cleanses. To date, Urban Remedy’s most popular plan is the Signature Cleanse which in one day provides 10 pounds of veggies and a week’s worth of recommended nutrients by unlocking the power of celery, kale, ginger, beets, carrots, apples, raspberries, cucumbers, almonds and chia seeds.
Meal Replacement Category:
Offered in five flavors; Chocolate Banana, Green Berry, Chai, Pineapple Coconut, and the house-favorite, PB&J, each drink packs powerful healing properties and amazing flavor in a 16 oz. bottle. Unlike traditional meals that can be over 1,000 calories and leave you in post-meal coma, or other meal replacements that use unhealthy additives to make you feel full, Urban Remedy’s meals are delicious, have around 250 calories, are made of all whole foods, that are full of protein and vital nutrients to power you through your day. These meal replacements are ideal for people who want to eat right but may not have ready access to premium super-foods.
With 100% organic, vegan and gluten-free ingredients, these delicious snacks are the best way to fight hunger. High in fiber, anti-oxidants, potassium, and with a third of the calories of a typical snack, Urban Remedy’s Nosh are beloved by kids and adults alike. With treats like coconut brittle, cacao brownies, sesame kale chips and lemon chia cookies, being healthy has never tasted so good.
“Urban Remedy solves the health problem for people who are just too busy to find the time to get truly delicious and healthful products,” said Michael Jones, CEO of Science Inc. “By powering Urban Remedy, one of the most sought-after niche health brands, with a technology platform that presents and engages users through site infographics, helpful charts, and funny stats, then distributes fresh made products to their doorsteps as soon as next day, we hope it’ll be easier for more people to discover and enjoy delicious alternatives to the all-too-available American junk food diet on a regular basis.”
