All Jamba Juice stores on Maui recently launched a new line of fruit-and-yogurt blended drinks - packed with probiotic boosts.
What exactly are "probiotics," you say? They are "live microorganisms, which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host," according to Wikipedia.
Containing more than 500 million active cultures per serving, Jamba's new line offers customers a simple, delicious way to support immune-system functioning and digestive health.

The new blended drinks are made of whole fruits and probiotics. They are an excellent source of Vitamin C and contain no high-fructose corn syrup, no artificial flavors, no artificial preservatives or trans fats-and they are the perfect way to get healthy ingredients to fit into your daily routine.
Flavors include Vibrant Blueberry, Strawberries Alive and Thrivin' Mango. You may also add energy and antioxidant boosts to the mix.
"We understand that there is a growing demand for on-the-go products that satisfy the needs of the health- conscious consumer," said Susan Shields, the chief marketing officer of Jamba Juice. "More and more consumers are seeking functional beverages and foods to help solve a variety of dietary needs and we wanted to offer a new product that is innovative, nutritious, delicious and serves a special purpose."
