Look up salubrious in the dictionary and you will find terms like, healthful, beneficial, and wholesome. But what do these words mean for a company, beyond the healthy and delicious products they make and serve?
Healthful is rather simple. There is always room for more fruits and vegetables within the Standard American Diet (SAD) that we’ve been raised on. With processed meats and simple carbs like hot dogs and white bread are promoted as standard American food and dietary guidelines are written by representatives from the meat, dairy, and sugar industries, all while chronic diseases caused by these ingredients continues to affect more and more people, it is essential for consumers to seek out both education and nutrient-dense foods to support their mental and physical well-being. No one ever got sick from eating too many vegetables.
Beneficial is defined as, “favorable or advantageous; resulting in good.” When you consume something from the Salubrious menu, not only are you supporting your body by providing the nutrients it needs, you are also supporting the local farmers who grow the organic produce, thereby stimulating the local economy and reducing the carbon footprint caused by food transportation.
Many foods, like strawberries, stop growing and begin degrading and losing nutrients the moment they are picked. If those strawberries spend days traveling all the way from the West coast, they will be far less nutritious than strawberries grown locally which travel a fraction of the distance. Eating organic, locally grown produce is advantageous for your body because it’s getting more nutritional bang for your buck, while also having a positive impact on the environment, which is good for everyone.
Wholesome is defined as, “conducive to or promoting of good health and physical well-being.” When you feel good, you do good. When you feel energized and are thinking positively from feeding your body quality fuel, you are more likely to feel like getting out, moving around, maybe even getting involved in your community. Conversely, when you feel tired and sluggish all the time, perhaps from eating the SAD, you are more likely to spend evenings on the couch in front of the TV, dejected that you don’t have enough energy for a more stimulating and fulfilling activity. Given the option between feeling energized or sluggish, which would you choose?
When we provide our bodies with the building blocks it needs in the form of vitamins and minerals found in nutrient-dense foods like fresh fruits and veggies, the effects go beyond the physical. With the physical body satisfied, the mind becomes more stable and focused. This is no coincidence. Mental illnesses, like ADHD and depression, are caused by chemical imbalances in the brain. Imbalances are a result of over- or under-production of neurotransmitters. Providing the body with the correct ingredients brings equilibrium to these essential processes and this balance has an overall positive effect on the brain’s functioning. The better we think, the more we know and are able to find solutions and upgrade our own lives and the lives of those around us.
Salubrious is an ancient word, with the same root as “salute,” stemming from the Latin salus meaning, “health, wholesome.” Salute the modern marvel of science, that provides us the knowledge to understand what’s going on in our bodies and how the surrounding environment affects us. Salute the fact that making this health-conscious choice for ourselves results in a positive impact on the earth. Raise a glass of Salubrious juice with confidence that you are supporting both your health and that of the planet.
