Inspiring Conversations with Imani B of JuicedUp: More than Juice

Today we’d like to introduce you to Imani B.

Imani, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
Well, oddly enough I had ZERO intentions of starting a business. I launched JuicedUp in March 2019.

At that time, I was on a weight loss journey, where I had lost over 65 pounds in about 3 months without working out. I went full throttle, consistently cleansing & detoxing my body with fruits and veggies.

I changed my lifestyle to pescatarian and juiced a lot. I had so many people asking “How & what”, but nobody wanted to do the labor lol. Finally, my best friend convinced me to make a business out of it.

Thank you, Toya!

I came up with a name, made my own logo and I originally launched offering only cold-pressed juices and detox system options for weight loss and overall health. Everything was and is still made by ME!

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
To be honest, it was hard and still is. I started JuicedUp around the time I made a leap in my career from education into finance while trying to finish up school and the certifications needed for my job. It was a lot!

I’ve taken several breaks from my business due to high levels of stress and the needs of my full-time job, but my customers always have me open back up. Truthfully, it’s hard to sell “HEALTH”. I feel like a lot of people, even myself at one point, take the easy way out.

What I mean by that is, following fad diets, running to the doctors and filling up on prescription drugs, and even accepting the quickest fix they can find for a health issue without seeking or addressing the root cause. Nobody wants to really put in the WORK for longevity, everybody wants something fast and quick.

What they don’t realize is a temporary fix can cause more complex issues sometimes, rather than just sticking it out with a regimen. I say this to say, although I do promote quick fixes, I also promote what to do to maintain those fixes.

I vowed to myself after I stopped last time, I wouldn’t stop again no matter how hard it got! I want JuicedUp to be BIG! So BIG!

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about JuicedUp: More than Juice?
JuicedUp is more than just a business it’s PERSONAL.

It’s MY personal journey that evolved into a MISSION to assist others in any way possible to be the healthiest version of themselves! With that being said… My GOAL, My PASSION is to offer what I know WORKS! In 2021, I expanded taking a step more toward natural health offering products that are geared toward natural healing, wellness, and sexual health.

This change was triggered by my own health the year before. My body was my own enemy. My reproductive, respiratory, and digestive systems were trying to take me OUT, sometimes at the same time. I was running back and forth to the doctors, several procedures/surgeries, trying to diagnose /fix the problems.

Scary enough, at one point I was on about 18 different medications. I was exhausted and depressed but refused to give up! I started doing my own research and that’s where I discovered the POWER of herbs.

Now in addition to juice, I offer Seamoss with & without aphrodisiacs, and Herbal Tea blends for issues such as insomnia, PCOS/fibroids, high blood pressure, etc.

A variety of weight loss and cleansing products, sexual wellness products which includes my Yoni products and sexual boosters for men and women & so much more! I want people to feel comfortable with every aspect of themselves!

If you had to, what characteristic of yours would you give the most credit to?
I’m personable & authentic. I don’t sell a dream. I offer free information to anybody who asks. If I don’t have an answer, I’ll find it. I offer what WORKS! It may not work for every single person, but it will work for the majority.

If it doesn’t work for you. I make it my goal to find something that does!

Every product I offer has been tested by either myself or someone who has felt comfortable and trusted me to find a way to alleviate their issue. I am always looking for new challenges!
