Red Mango Yogurt Cafe Smoothie & Juice Bar, a division of Dallas-based BRIX Holdings LLC, expanded its lineup of healthy products with the launch of a new one-day juice plan: Raw6.

Carefully crafted by Red Mango juicing experts and Erika Bernhard, a registered dietitian and nutritionist with 20 years of experience in the field of health and nutrition, Raw6 is a one-day nutrition plan loaded with antioxidants that is designed to help boost immune function, combat free radicals, increase energy levels and  provide nutrients needed for optimal health, the company says.  Comprised of a combination of four juices, one nut or soy milk, and one enhanced-flavored water, the plan pairs these beverages with recommended snacks and a well-balanced meal to help increase nutrient intake and improve overall health, it adds.

Raw6 features the following products: Raw6 Resist, which contains vitamin C; Raw6 Recharge, featuring iron; and Raw6 Revive, which contains magnesium. Each plan includes an assortment of six drinks and contains  a variety of fresh fruit and vegetable juice combinations along with recommended healthy snacks and a light meal designed to ensure a balanced nutritional program, the company explains. The plans retail for a suggested price of $42 and will be sold in select Red Mango stores nationwide.

"I have always been very frustrated by the way juicing programs are marketed to consumers, especially when they involve dangerously long periods of fasting, little nutritional value, and false claims of biologic functions. Raw6, the Red Mango one-day juice plan, is a very unique way to do juicing, and follows Red Mango's commitment to true health, quality taste, and style," said Bernhard, who also is the president and founder of Crave Nutrition Solutions LLC, Missouri City, Texas. "I was pleased when Red Mango asked me to help them craft a plan that would offer consumers the most nutritional benefits without making them go a whole day without eating.

“We worked to design this one-day program to be very easy to follow for people who have wanted to try juicing, but were deterred by the often unpleasant side effects of so-called juice cleanses, detoxes, and fasts that have become so popular,” she continued. “Each Raw6 plan has been carefully designed to include the specific nutritional values of each juice, but also to incorporate healthy snacks and a meal to provide fiber, healthy fats and a higher level of protein than most other competitors' juicing programs."

Jim Notarnicola, chief marketing officer for BRIX Holdings added: "Consumer demand for high quality, healthy snack and meal options are continually growing as we all become more aware of what we put into our bodies. Raw6, our new one-day juice plan, joins our world famous frozen yogurt and smoothies, giving guests a wider variety of all natural, made-to-order menu items created from quality ingredients to help promote a healthy, active lifestyle. Each Raw6 plan is specifically created to offer the best nutritional values to customers wanting to live a healthier lifestyle."
