HELLO HEALTHY, HELLO JUJUBEET
FOOD THAT MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD
At Jujubeet, we believe in seizing the moment. It only takes a moment to make a change; it only takes a moment to treat your body right; it only takes a moment to make a fresh start.
While trying to squeeze the most out of every day, we look for convenience. Unfortunately, most convenience foods are calorie-rich, yet nutritionally-starved. Instead of energizing us, these empty calories leave us feeling sluggish and drained. Our mission is to provide quick, simple, delicious, and yet nutrient-rich food. Food that makes you feel good.
FRESH FRUITS AND VEGETABLES, NOTHING ELSE
We believe that the foundation of a healthy diet is whole, unprocessed foods. We’ve taken the building blocks of good health and put them in a cup.
We offer a variety of proven superfoods; when you walk into our store, you don’t have to worry about making an unhealthy choice. Everything we sell is crafted to provide you with the energy and the nutrition needed to make each day spectacular
About ZUM - INDIGO WILD
Our people were born to be Indigo Wild. And — guilty as charged — every one of us is a true nature’s child. We’ve banded together to thump and bump the rock and soul into every batch of Zum Bars, Glows, Rubs, Kisses and more. Individually, our peeps are virtuosos who are oh-so major to helping our ingredients sing. But together, We’re fusicians who ensure the holistic is always greater than the Zum of its parts.
We make our stuff rock, balancing the rhythm that forms the backbone: Goat’s milk, soy wax, jojoba oil, shea butter, argan oil, dragon’s blood. We add stuff like meadowfoam seed oil, rosehip oil and botanical extracts for bass vibes you can feel. Then we bring out the 100% pure essential oils to lay down a melody that hits the high notes.
Betsy Medina's Story
Ever have an out-of-body experience? I have...my personal out-of-body journey began the second I was diagnosed with breast cancer on a random Friday in November 2000; November 11, 2000 to be exact. I call this my "out-of-body journey" because I felt like I was outside looking in while witnessing something or someone much bigger than myself take over every thought and decision I made to intelligently get me through this...
A large lump popped out from behind a muscle in my right arm pit. Alarmed by this, I called my doctor and he examined me the very next day. After the examination, he said it was a swollen lymph-node and scheduled a mammogram and ultra-sound for me the following week. Over the last 6 years, upon my doctor's recommendation, I've been having mammograms every couple of years due to fibroids in my breasts. So the mammogram wasn't such a big deal to me but the ultra-sound and the enlarged lymph-node did concern me. I know he sensed my anxiety and said to please not worry about anything until we get the results, after all, the node could be swollen for several reasons like doing their job... fighting infection. The results of my mammogram and ultra-sound came out clean! I was so excited! My doctor did suggest however that the lymph-node was so enlarged, I should have it surgically removed. We scheduled an appointment with a surgeon to have it removed the following week.
