Luis Manta, the Founder and Creator of Seoul Juice, a Korean Pear Juice that is as healthy as it is tasty and has been a top selling product across the United States joins eHealth Radio and the Beverage and Health News Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Luis Manta discuss the following:

  1. Why did you decide to create your health beverage?
  2. Why should people be more conscious now more than ever before about what they are putting into their bodies?
  3. What makes your drink different? Healthier?
  4. What does the future hold for your company?
  5. For those who haven't tried your drink... what does it taste like?

 

IMG_0406.jpg

 

As a college athlete, I was always searching for ways to better replenish my body's nutrients. The inspiration to create a functional beverage came to me while doing research in one of my college classes. As a result of both of my parents growing up overseas, I was accustomed to eating fruits and vegetables not commonly found in the United States, and I came to realize that many of the fruits I grew up eating had many unique functional qualities.

The sports drinks I was consuming as an athlete contained many artificial ingredients, so I made it my mission to create a better-for-you hydration beverage solely from fruit. After a long experimental process of multiple recipes and countless hours in my college apartment, Seoul Juice became a reality. I am excited to share Seoul Juice with others who share my passion for clean hydration.
