I’ve not been at all well lately, and I’ve recently been diagnosed with a Vitamin D deficiency which explains all of my symptoms. When I realised what the issue was I knew I needed to start eating a little bit more healthily and so when Pago e-mailed me asking if I’d like to review one of their products, it seemed like fate. After a quick e-mail chat we decided the best juice for me is the Pago Multivitamin Tropical Juice and Pago kindly sent me a 12 pack, which retails at £11.49.
The juice comes in 200ml glass bottles, which can obviously be recycled. Whilst smaller than a lot of drinks, 200ml is actually a portion when it comes to fruit juice and so they’re pretty handy-I’ve been taking one a day to work. The Pago Multivitamin Tropical Juice contains Apple, Pear, Orange, Pineapple, Grape, Lemon, Guava, Apricot, Banana, Mango, Peach and Papaya. The juice has vitamins C, B3, E, B5, Provitamin A, vitamins B6, B1, B9, B7 and B12. Not bad for one small bottle (though sadly for me there’s no vitamin D in there)
The first time I tried the juice I wasn’t sure I was going to like it. It’s a very strong taste, and it wasn’t what I was expecting-something in there makes it taste really tart at first, though the second sip is more fruity and lovely as your palette adjusts. I’m just about to drink my last bottle and I’m sad that I’ve run out as it’s so lovely, it’s been my breakfast drink of choice since my crate arrived and I wish I had more. I will be buying more online for sure, so I can carry on having a bottle a day, as I really am feeling the benefit of all those vitamins added in to my daily diet.
I’d never heard of Pago until they contacted me but after doing some research, they seem to be more aimed at bars and restaurants than your average consumer. You can buy the whole range online though, and they offer lots of different flavours: Orange, Strawberry, Mango, Peach, Cloudy Cherry, Orange Carrot and Lemon, Cranberry, Rhubarb and Pear, Pink Grapefruit, Pineapple, Cloudy Apple, Tomato and Pear. All flavours are sold in packs of 12 200ml bottles for £11.49, which sounds expensive but for less than £1 a bottle isn’t bad when you think that a bottle of Cola, which has no goodness whatsoever, is more than that.
If you’re trying to improve how many vitamins you’re getting on a daily basis, I can highly recommend fruit juice. And if you’re after some really good fruit juice, you should definitely give Pago a try.
Do you drink fruit juice daily?
