The Carousel was invited to a healthy start along to a morning yoga class by the brand Nuzest. The objective was to raise awareness around the multiple sclerosis. This year, Nuzest is sending a team to walk the Great Wall of China as part of the “Kiss Goodbye to MS” Great Wall of China Trek.
Monique Bolland Nuzest, Nuzest co-founder, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at 22 years old. Then, with her father Trevor (the other Nuzest co-founder) they both travelled worldwide to find the best neurologists and naturopaths.
Monique’s ability to live a healthy and active life (we had the pleasure to see her pregnant at the event!), is due to a serious lifestyle change including changes in her daily diet.
This difficult period led this powerful dad and daughter duo to build a brand which could help others maximising and improving their nutrition. Monique’s disease was their driving force to build the company which is now present in more than twenty countries. The aim of the company is to provide the cleanest green multi nutrient and vegan protein powder on the market.
After the yoga class, held in Hot Dog Yoga, Double Bay, we refuelled our bodies with smoothies made with the clean lean protein powder formula: very tasty (also thanks to fruits and vegetal milk added), it was consistent and nourishing.
Formulas are designed to offer good nutrition to everybody as they are free from common allergens, gluten free, vegan and dairy free. The product range also extends to bars and ready-to-go protein mixes. When saying accessible to everyone they really mean everyone: hence the launch of “Kids Good Stuff” an all-in-one balance of vitamins and minerals for a fuss-free way to fill the gaps in children’s diet.

Nuzest Australia is sending one lucky winner on the trip of a lifetime to help raise funds for Multiple Sclerosis research.

Each ticket is valued over $5,000 and this, along with additional funds raised, will go straight to MSRA.
