Drinking Vegetable and Fruit Juice Leads U.S. Health & Wellness Trends for 2014 Resolutions

More Than 46 Million Americans Ditch New Year’s Resolutions Only Three Weeks In; Evolution Fresh Helps People Hit the Resolution Reset Button.

SEATTLE (January 13, 2014) –Nearly 83 percent of adult American resolution-makers surveyed look to take small steps toward a better future by making at least one health and wellness goal in 2014, however more than 46 million Americans admit to struggling with their New Year’s resolutions by the third week of January [1].

Evolution Fresh is looking to help people from coast to coast hit their resolution reset button with easy access to cold-pressed, high pressure processed (HPP) juice. From Thursday, Jan. 23 through Saturday, Jan. 25, Evolution Fresh will offer free sampling of two of its most popular flavors– Sweet Greens with Lemon and Defense Up – at local Starbucks stores across the U.S.

“Our goal is to make delicious nutrition available to as many people as possible, especially as they become more and more conscious of their health and wellness. We believe that drinking cold-pressed HPP juice can be a wonderful choice to nurture your body and soul, and help you feel great,” said Jimmy Rosenberg, founder and chief juice officer at Evolution Fresh.

In addition, Evolution Fresh is partnering with Flywheel Sports® to offer sampling and free juices in participating studios coast-to-coast for one week in February. During the promotion, a handful of Flywheel attendees in each class that week will be surprised with an Evolution Fresh gift bag that includes free Evolution Fresh cold-pressed, HPP juices.

The Evolution Fresh New Year’s Resolution survey also revealed:

  • Nearly half (47 percent) of the country think it is important to consume more fruits and vegetables in 2014; and nearly four in ten (38 percent) Americans have made it their New Year’s resolution, beating out other top goals such as a career improvement or giving up a bad habit.
  • More than 59 million Americans want to drink more fruit and vegetable juices as part of their New Year’s resolutions. This is higher than any other health and wellness trend including the use of fitness gadgets or consuming more probiotics.
  • 170 million Americans tend to make New Year’s resolutions each year, but 88 percent of these resolution makers admit to having difficulties achieving them, with 46 million people admitting to struggling by the third week of January.

“The survey found that overall health and wellness betterment is top of mind for Americans this year,” said Rosenberg. “We love to see people incorporating more fruits and vegetables, both in their raw form and also in nutritious, high-quality, cold-pressed juice, into their lives every day.”
