Join Content Magazine for a colorful evening at the School of Arts and Culture on Thursday, July 21 from 7:00pm to 10:00pm. At the next Content LAB, “Color Night,” Reena Williams, founder of Kwench in Campbell, will be sharing the holistic healing remedies of juicing: how to prevent inflammation, increase energy with natural ingredients, and boost metabolism. Plus, learn the usefulness of some unexpected ingredients like raw turmeric, sugarcane, and ginger.
The inspiration for Kwench came from Williams’ dad. He was terminally ill, fighting a brave fight with cancer. She would drive to various places to get good fruits to make fresh juices, since he was unable to ingest solids. Doing so brought home the realization that juices made from freshly cut fruits are hard to come by. Most juices have preservatives or vitamins added which may interfere with how the body interprets the juices or are made from pre-cut fruits that have been packaged in plastic containers or are sitting in a solution. Given her father’s health, she was not ready to take a chance.
In taking care of her dad, Williams learned a lot about nutrients, antioxidants, fruits, and vegetables. Her father had a background in F&B, so he taught her a lot of what she now knows. Williams continues to reflect on this experience: “Thinking of how my dad would light up when I would bring him a glass of fresh juice that wasn’t out of a bottle still brings me great comfort. I hope to be able to bring the same radiant joy that he emanated to the people around.”
