Jamba Juice Makes Commitment To Heart Health


Jamba Juice Company (JMBA[1]), a leading healthy, active lifestyle brand, and the Greater Bay Area Division of the American Heart Association (AHA), are working together to raise funds and promote healthy lifestyles in the Bay Area.

The American Heart Association recommends eating oats and other whole-grain foods regularly as part of a balanced diet that is low in saturated and trans fats. In a show of support for healthy hearts, Jamba Juice will highlight its artisan oatmeal made with organic steel cut oats as a heart-healthy breakfast option in their Bay Area stores. Jamba Juice employees hope to raise at least $50,000 and, towards that effort, the Company has offered to make a $1 donation to the American Heart Association for every oatmeal purchased during the AHA special promotional period* at its 81 participating Bay Area stores. Jamba will also offer a Whirld Heart Coupon Sheet with a variety of in-store product discounts* for an additional donation of $1 to the American Heart Association.

Jamba is committed to helping our fans and customers find simple, easy ways to eat healthier and stay more active through the products we offer and activities we sponsor, stated James D. White, chairman, president, and CEO, Jamba Juice Company. Partnering with the American Heart Association to promote critical initiatives, like heart health, is one way we show our commitment to inspiring and simplifying healthy living.

In addition to its commitment to raise funds for healthy hearts, Jamba Juice will promote the American Heart Associations Start Training half-marathon program in 14 of its Bay Area stores to help educate and prepare local customers and Jamba team members for the Western Pacific Half Marathon in Fremont on May 4, 2013. Start Training is a 16-week fitness training and fundraising program offered by the American Heart Association to help individuals prepare for a safe and satisfying run/walk event.

James D. White, Jamba Juice Chairman, President, and CEO, has challenged a team of East Bay executives to raise $1 million for the East Bay Heart of Gold Ball. The Heart of Gold Ball raises funds to support the American Heart Associations mission to build healthier lives free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Specifically, the gala creates awareness of congenital heart defects, the number one birth defect. The money raised at the gala funds AHA research, prevention efforts, advocacy and community outreach programs. Jamba Juice is a Platinum sponsor of the event, along with Pleasanton-based Ross Stores, Inc. The event will take place on May 18, 2013 at Wente Vineyards in Livermore.

* Valid at participating Jamba locations only during specified timeframes only.

    What Are Some Healthy Lifestyle Changes To Make? So I’ve started drinking more water. I drink Green, White, and Chai tea. I also bought the stainless steel water bottle, and I bike for about 20-30 minutes a day. I consider these healthy lifestyle changes. I was wondering if you could provide more suggestions along these lines.

      There are 5 elements in a healthy lifestyle.

      1. food
      2. exercise
      3. sleep
      4. happiness
      5. extra healthy things

      1. Food, we don’t really know that much about nutrition, we do know a blanced diet, with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables is good for you. Meat is pretty good, if it is lean and not eaten too often….ideally I might eat meat once or twice a week. A good healthy diet can include some indulgences.
      2. Exercise, you should do some. Though I don’t recommend routine exercise, cycle 2 or 3 times a week, join a social sports club, eg, tennis, go hiking on weekends, swimming is one of the best exercises for the whole body. If you vary your exercise, then you will enjoy it more and do more.
      3. Sleep. A lot of evidence says if you don’t get enough sleep you will have problems, eat more, metabolise your food differently and die young.
      4. Be happy, enjoy your life. Drink dance, eat chocolate, but not all day, everyday.
      5. Then there are all the little extras. eg, green tea (there is no such things as Chai tea….chai means tea, it is an indian word derived from the chinese word Cha, meaning tea), red wine, brocollie and beetroot, lots of things than can boost your body, ginger, garlice and hundreds of other things that you can add to your diet to make things a little better.

      Don’t obsess, don’t live by a book or a routine, just be healthy.

    How Will You Maintain A Healthy Lifestyle In The Future? Imagine yourself after college. You’re married with a few kids. You’re gaining a few pounds every now and then. How will you get yourself back on track into a healthy lifestyle?

      Minus the after college part, but I have 2 kids and am expecting the third one in a few weeks. We maintain healthy lifestyles by eating nutritious foods, lots of whole grains, fruits, veggies, and milk. We also get a lot of exercise in. Although my kids are still toddlers and I’m big as a house, everyday as a family my husband and I walk with the kids up and down the road, then when we get home my husband stays outside with the kids and plays with them while I get supper fixed. We don’t turn the TV on until after baths, forcing us to get up off the couch. Hopefully that will encourage our kids to maintain healthy lifestyles after they’re all grown up.

    What Can Anyone Do To Promote A Healthy Lifestyle? What can institutions such as schools do and what can individuals do?
    What can the government put in place?
    What is the reason for the fact not a lot of people care about having a healthy lifestyle anymore?

      • HealthNut
      • January 25, 2013

      Schools can replace all or most of the canteen food with healthy options so they could replace chicken burger with tuna salad for example. Individuals can aim to eat 5 portions of fruit and veg a day and exercise for at least 30 minutes a day. The government can put a higher price up on junk food, therefore tempting more people to buy healthy food as it would become cheaper than it is now.

      The reason why people don’t care about a healthy lifestyle, is that junk food like burger and chips is quick and a convenience, as healthy meals takes time to prepare. Same with exercise maybe being time consuming and they have a busy schedule to be able to fit it all in.

      Healthy lifestyle…involves eating right, exercing, and relationships you have with others. Also if you live in a clean environment…messy=germs=sickness…and to maintain a healthy lifestyle you need to frequenlty eat right, do some sort of physical activity, be nice to others (stress is bad for health), and keep a clean home

    How Do You Stay Commited To Your Healthy Lifestyle? I’m trying have a healthy lifestyle and lose weight but i’m finding it hard to commit.

      Are you sure you want to lose weight? If this a true desire, give it two weeks, and then asses how you feel. If you are eating healthy and exercises you will feel the difference, then if you go back to living unhealthfully you will be able to tell the change in how you feel, then you should be able to make an easy desicion.

    Is Dairy An Important Part Of A Healthy Lifestyle? I consume 3 servings of dairy in the first half of my day, and none later on. Is dairy important to maintain a healthy lifestyle?

      • HealthNut
      • January 25, 2013

      Calcium, not dairy specifically, is what’s important to a healthy lifestyle. Many other things have calcium like broccoli, nuts, fish, water, etc. The amounts are smaller though so you’d have to consume a lot more of them to get the calcium that you need, which is why people find it easier to get it through dairy. Our bodies don’t actually absorb all the calcium from dairy products very well because of the fat in them; that is why “western” societies actually have the highest rates of osteoperosis, where countries that don’t consume dairy products at all but get calcium from other sources, actually have stronger bones and very low rates of this disease.
