Junius is a multi award winning family owned food and drinks brand. I’m Maria King and I’m the Co-founder, I’m a qualified Nutritional Therapist and certified with the world-renowned Institute for Functional Medicine.
Having worked in a busy city corporate environment, for many years, I came up against various health challenges but always struggled to find a solution when it came to healthy eating on the go. I was left confused by the conflicting information about what was good for me on any given day and there always seemed to be a ‘one size fits all’ approach, which never sat right with me.
Eventually I decided to study nutrition on a professional level, which led me to obtain a Masters of Science in Personalised Nutrition. I then went on to to certify with the Institute for Functional Medicine in the US. Last year I was honoured to present my own work at the Institute for Functional Medicine’s annual conference in Texas.
I am truly passionate about sharing, not only deeply nutritious food and drinks but also using the vehicle of food to share my knowledge of science to help people to live well, feel well and do well, everyday. Functional Medicine looks at the whole body as interconnected systems and addresses chronic lifestyle diseases (including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity and cancer) at the root level through nutrition and lifestyle interventions, encompassing nutritional science and biochemistry.
We believe in nourishing the roots of health and we start with the science and build the recipe. Our recipes are uniquely formulated and deeply nourishing and we have simplified the complexity of the science of food into seven colour-coded pillars to help people make informed choices on how to care for their health goal on any given day.
Why choose Junius?
We are the world’s first food-to-go enterprise that takes the complexity of the science of food and gives it simplexity, targeting health goals. At present there are only a small number of fully certified IFM practitioners in the UK, of which I am one, making Junius the only food and drink company driven by the principles of functional medicine. We understand that there is so much conflicting advice out there today and we aim to take the confusion out of it. We start with the science and build the recipe, allowing you to improve your health in a user-friendly way through our delicious juices and shots bursting with benefits – choosing health goals at a glance.
We are passionate about bio-individuality, i.e. there is no one-size-fits-all because each person is unique with highly individualised nutritional requirements. Personalisation is key, which is why we have made it possible for you to customise your product choices based on your own unique needs or health goal. For example if your health goal today is Vigour + Drive then you would choose from the ZIP range, and tomorrow if your health goal is Resilience + Armour then you would choose from our FAB range. From ZIP to ZEN you can choose your own personal health goal.
Junius also provide an educational platform for the health conscious person to access the teachings of the principles of Functional Medicine in a more accessible and simple way.

What we offer
The Junius range includes cold pressed juices and shots, dressings, salads, wraps, snacks, and we are soon to launch a breakfast range. You can customise your health with our multi-award winning cold-pressed juices feeding the roots of your health. Our juices are delivered UK wide and are available in boxes of either 7 juices or 7 shots or 7 juices plus 7 shots. Represented across the colour range. Each of the seven pillars contain different ingredients based on a particular health goal;
- SPA: Cleanse + Refresh
- ZEN: Tranquillity + Balance
- ZAP: Resilience + Armour
- ZIP: Vigour + Drive
- FAB: Renew + Replenish
- REV: Ignite + Burn
- POW: Strength + Vitality
You may be drawn to a particular ‘pillar’, colour, or ingredient depending on your health goal that day. For example, if today your goal is Tranquillity + Balance you would choose from our ZEN range, or if Resilience + Armour is your goal then ZAP is the pillar for you today.
If you don’t have a specific health goal you can choose our mixed box and drink the colours of the rainbow, benefitting from all of the different nutrients in all the pillars – bursting with health benefits.
Our most popular ranges recently have been Cleanse + Refresh (SPA) and Resilience + Armour (ZAP). Our double-award winning SPA juice strikes the perfect balance of green goodness and deliciousness. Artichoke, Parsley, Kale, Broccoli, Spinach and Aloe Vera are juiced along with naturally sweet apple and zingy lemon to make this an all- round favourite.
One of its hero nutrients, artichoke is shown in studies to be a powerful antioxidant with liver-protective benefits.
Many of our customers are choosing to build their defences with the ZAP range, which contains beautifully bright carrots full of powerful antioxidants, mouth wateringly sweet oranges and warming ginger. We also add lime, spicy red chilli and zinc to formulate our award-winning ZAP shot, designed to strengthen your defences and improve resilience.
