With an innate interest in how the body works, Fahed Al-Sultan found his calling in biology. Having completed his undergrad in Molecular Biology and his post-grad in Bio-Technology, Fahed gained insight on why certain discomforts and pains occur. With his knowledge and a health conscious family background, it was only natural to find his passion in getting people’s health in check. “I used to make fun of people that used to do juice cleanses, until I went on one when I was living in New York,” Fahed laughed. Reaping the benefits of juicing, Fahed continued to go on monthly cleanses for a year upon his return to Kuwait and his immunity is stronger than ever. After meeting his now founding partner, Dana Al Salem, Re-Juice was born – Kuwait’s first juice cleanse service.
Re-Juice provides cleanses for just a single a day or up to seven days, with juices created with zero additives and balancing the nutritional values for each cleanse. Fahed and the Re-Juice team exclusively use a cold-press juicer to ensure that all of the benefits that arrive with consuming fruit and vegetable juices are optimally retained. “People have a misconception that healthy means it won’t taste good,” Fahed smiled, but because healthy can be delicious, a lot of work has gone into creating these concoctions to keep this fallacy at bay. Currently growing as much of their own produce as possible and as organically as they can, Re-Juice creates a premium product for your health benefit. Using locally grown produce means you’re getting the full nutritional value – “Take strawberries as an example,” Fahed explained, “they’re always picked when they’re green and left to ripen in crates on their way here! But we pick the strawberries when they’re fully matured, sweet and ready to be eaten.” Wanting to get to know the man behind the juice a little better, we sat with Chief Juicing Officer – “because why not keep it fun?” – Fahed Sultan for a friendly game of truth or dare.

How would your mother describe you in one word?
How would you describe your mother in one word?
What is the most ridiculous question you’ve ever been asked?
Does the sun rise from the east? I then spent 10 minutes in awe and another 10 explaining how that was a ridiculous question, and then refused to even answer it.
What is the most spontaneous thing you’ve ever done?
Saw live octopus on a menu in South Korea, and decided to try it… the tentacles were moving, suction cups sticking to the plate; surprisingly it was delicious.
What is your theme song?
Cat Stevens- “Wild World.”
What word in the English or Arabic language do you wish you had invented?
Photosynthesis… something about it makes me smile.
Where would you like to live? What is your dream retirement location?
To open a bed and breakfast on a small cosy island, with a scuba school, a small vegetable farm in the back and a great restaurant. To be honest I’m about 90% sure it will be in somewhere in Colombia.
What is the first famous quote that comes to your mind?
“Failure is success if we learn from it.” – Malcolm Forbes.
What animal best describes the kind of partner you’d be interested in?
A Panda. They cuddle well.

Having time to run wild.
If you could change your name, what would you change it to?
Fred… it’s much easier whilst travelling, and it’s close enough to Fahed to respond to.

The same way I describe them all… “GERMS!”

What in the world do you least desire?
What do you think is lacking in the world, which if there was more of would make the world a better place?
Critical thinking. I think the educational system is the one system that has stopped evolving over time and has bred regurgitators versus thinkers. If we teach people how to think analytically and critically we can start playing on a level field.
Why do you think most girls/guys like you?
At first they don’t, they find my sarcasm too intense. But if they stick around they realize I do have a heart, and that the sarcasm comes from a place of love.

KDD ice-cream sandwich.
