Kara Rosen

PLENISH Cleanse founder Kara Rosen spent a decade flying between New York and LA, jetlagged, overindulged and exhausted from a hectic work schedule. Suffering from an ongoing battle with strep throat, and failing antibiotics, Kara turned to a holistic nutritionist who suggested a 5-day juice cleanse. Having helped her to win the battle against strep, that cleanse turned into a love for a new lifestyle and Kara started to turn regularly to cold-pressed juices for a detox.After having her baby and moving to London, Kara started to prepare her own cold-pressed juices and nut milks. She worked with a talented nutritionist to establish the right balance of phytonutrients and protein in order to gently rid the body of toxins, and maintain the energy levels necessary for her busy lifestyle. After a year of making the juices for friends and family and receiving fabulous feedback, PLENISH was born to make organic, raw, cold-pressed juices available to everyone. It is now available nationwide.
