As a professional rugby player, Richard Smith-Bernal was relying on workout supplements to boost energy and support his active lifestyle. In 2012, he developed severe gastritis and started a journey to find alternatives to alleviate symptoms and return to full health. After months of doctors’ appointments and traditional medication, nothing seemed to help.
After spending time in LA, he fell in love with cold-pressed juices and the associated health benefits. He also developed a passion for plant-based food and noticed a real difference in his energy levels and mood. His symptoms improved rapidly, and he decided to start sharing these benefits with the world.
He purchased his first cold-pressed juicer and started juicing from his family kitchen.
Richard Smith-Bernal launched The Juice Smith in the Summer of 2013 with one machine and one mission in mind.
The launch began with a collection of signature cold pressed juices.
