Kencko Instant Organic Fruit and Veg Drinks: Servings for Every Body.

We all know to eat our fruits and vegetables…right? It’s one of the first rules recited to us as kids. It’s repeated enough times to make us sigh and role our eyes into the back of our heads. And yet, according to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in a study last November, only 1 in 10 adults meet the federal fruit OR vegetable requirements. This ratio is larger among young adults, men and people living in poverty. Enter Kencko.

Kencko (which literally means healthy in Japanese) is a new health company on the block with a mission to help consumers receive the proper amount of fruits and vegetables daily. It started in 2017 and just made products available online March of this year. They’re working towards this by supplying organic powder packets that can be taken to-go (even TSA approved).

The reason to eat the right amount of fruits and vegetables in a day is crucial to our health.

If you’re as skeptical as I am (or using skepticism as an excuse for laziness), then you might be asking just how important are fruits and vegetables anyway…and where’s the proof? For perspective, the CDC goes on to say that “seven of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States are from chronic diseases. Eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables daily can help reduce the risk of many leading causes of illness and death, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, and obesity.’

Not only do fruits and vegetables enhance our performance and wellbeing {read: make our skin look great}. They have the potential to save our lives.

Kencko’s own founder Tomás Froes switched to a 90% plant based diet after diagnosed with acute gastritis. He wanted to restore his health before submitting to medication for the rest of his life. He claims to have cured himself with the new diet and created this wellness brand so that everyone may carry plant based foods with them at all times.

But the question remains, if fruits and veggies are so important, why aren’t we eating more?

It’s common for young people like myself to have a feeling of invisibility + quite possibly one of the reasons 20-somethings are clearly not eating enough fruit and vegetables. Other reasons we may pass on fruits and veggies could be an inability to pay the price for fresh organics or feeling too busy to take control of our health. It could be from disliking the taste due to regular consumption of processed foods or have limited to no accessibility to health foods.

Kencko is conveniently delivered, ready to go and saves time and money.

Kencko has eliminated any excuses I have for not eating my fruits+vegs. All I need is a packet, the reusable mixer bottle provided with each order, water or other beverage of choice, and 30 seconds. Wha-la! I have a delicious juice and I’m halfway to my fruit+veggie serving requirement for the day. Even better, it only cost me a $1.99. At a price and convenience this good, it’s one of the most accessible juice drinks on the market. It’s also arguably higher quality than the average ‘premium’ juice.

Say, what is the difference between Kencko products and other juices?

There are many companies with comparable incentives, most appearing within the last year. Kencko, however, uses freeze-drying to retain 100% of minerals, proteins and vitamins. And they don’t skip on the seeds or pulp. All of the goodness is ground into an on-the-go powder with a shelf life of 6 months. Nothing else is added as it’s only made or organic fruits+vegs and no nutrients is lost. It’s a win, win. This is a must-have for those of us needing to up our fruit and veg intake.

One of my favorite little touches is that each flavor is named after a color with corresponding fruits+vegs and made to target specific health concerns. For example, Greens is made with spinach, kale, kiwi, pineapple, apple, banana, and ginger. Greens is ideal for enhancing memory and reducing muscle pain.

Plus the packaging is personalized by hand. <3
