Taryn McCracken and Hanna Gregor have been studying the science of healthy eating since college. Taryn, a committed vegan, earned her bachelor’s degree in health psychology, and while Hanna worked toward a degree in nutritional sciences at Penn State University, she coached the school’s Division I athletes on how to use healthy foods to increase performance. Together they helm Detox Lounge, a salon-inspired health center with a very simple mission: out with the bad, in with the good. That means eliminating toxins and taking in antioxidants.
A large part of their work involves True Juice Cleanses, a proprietary line of complex juices blended from fruit and superfoods that are designed to boost metabolism, eliminate fats, and detoxify the body. Users can graduate to 500-calorie Master Weight-Loss Cleanses, or supplement their progress with detoxifying spa treatments. An infrared sauna expels toxins via perspiration, and aqua detox footbaths draw out harmful elements that have collected in the muscles, joints, fatty tissue, and white blood cells’ junk drawers.

The chic, simple interior of Skybound Coffee + Dessert Lounge keeps the focus on what's most important: colorful, creamy gelato, fresh-baked pastries, and espresso.

Meanwhile, loose-leaf teas from around the world come to life with a touch of hot water, often served up alongside a flaky, fresh-baked croissant or a slice of rich, chocolate cake. Some gluten-free options are also available.

If you were to trace the origin of one of Jamba Juice?s freshly squeezed juices, it wouldn?t take long before you ended up face to face with its most important supplier: Mother Nature. Whole fruits and vegetables from her gardens, groves, and orchards fill Jamba Juice's stores: kale, apples, pineapple, carrots, beets, and other produce. Although it?s serious about filling cups with wholesome, natural ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate.
Sure, there are classic juices on the juice menu. Purely Carrot, for instance, which is as elemental and straightforward as it sounds. But there?s also the Tropical Greens, which combines apple juice and pineapple with super greens and chia seeds. And there?s Kale Orange Power, loaded with kale, bananas, and orange juice?all of which are packed with a serious helping of vitamins and manganese. Regardless of which flavor you choose, each 12-ounce juice packs in at least 1.5 servings of fruits and veggies, making it a convenient way to restore energy and get nutrition on the go. The same commitment to simplifying healthy eating can be found throughout the Jamba Juice menu, from its Fruit and Veggie smoothies to its Artisan Flatbreads.
In addition to providing healthy options to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative is focused on improving childhood nutrition and fitness by encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to helping the nation stay fit?which you can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.
With over 500 stores serving the full freshly squeezed juice menu, Jamba Juice is the perfect way to blend in the good.
