Olivia Esquivel Co-founder, Southern Pressed Juicery & Wildcrafted

Wildcrafted was created by Olivia Esquivel, a mother and entrepreneur who is passionate about representing a holistic lifestyle that can change lives for the better and it started with food. 

Olivia and her husband, Anthony, are avid juicers. ​However, it was her role as a new mother to Luca and Alessandro that made her ​seek an even greater​ level of health and wellness. Personally, Olivia felt an enormous responsibility to provide only the highest nutritional foods for her new family.

A Cuban-American now living in the land of Meat N Three’s, she was plagued by the lack of organic and plant-based options in the South. She then set out to directly impact her community by creating an ​organic plant-based restaurant. Together with Table 301, she co-founded Southern Pressed Juicery so people of all walks of life could incorporate healthy eating into their everyday lifestyles.

Olivia and her team at Southern Pressed Juicery are making waves not only in the South but across the nation. Featured in Southern Living, Vogue, New York Observer among others, they are on track to change the course of history and bring organic and plant-based healing foods to the masses. Follow Olivia on instagram @oliviaequivel_.

What are Adaptogens?

Wildcrafted is a collection of custom blended nontoxic mushrooms & super-herbs known as “adaptogens.” Adaptogens help your body fight the negative effects of the stress hormone, cortisol, and nourish your overworked adrenal glands.

Wildcrafted will help you get balanced, focused, centered and energized. Here is an overview of how exactly these healing plants can change your life.

For over 5,000 years these functional mushrooms and super herbs have been used widely across cultures and continents. They have been a part of medical systems in Ancient Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese medicine, Tibetan medicine, ancient Russian folk medicine and Northern European traditional medicine. Adaptogens help the body resist stressors of all kinds, whether physical, chemical or biological. Once in the body they quite literally go where they are needed to help your body “adapt” to stress.

The benefits of adaptogens is an ever-growing list that gets increasingly impressive as more studies are done. This group of functional mushrooms and super herbs have historically been used to:

  • Reduce stress
  • Combat fatigue
  • Increase energy
  • Improve brain function
  • Strengthen immunity
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Boost liver health
  • Increase libido
  • Balance hormone function
  • Promote cell regeneration resulting glowing skin

Adaptogens work hard to normalize body functions through their affections on the HPA axis and the sympathoadrenal system. Your brain-adrenal (HPA) axis, brain-thyroid (HPT) and brain-gonadal axis (HPG) need to work in perfect harmony for a healthy mood, metabolism, energy, and immune system. Our adaptogenic blends work together to normalize and balance those complex systems resulting in expanding your body’s capacity to handle mental, physical and emotional stress.

Our search for a healthier lifestyle began with Southern Pressed Juicery and now continues with the birth of Wildcrafted. These blends work to amplify your hustle, inspire mindful living, and renew your inner spirit. Created for makers, go-getters and mothers alike, there is a little something for everyone. Wildcrafted can help create that moment of peace by establishing a ritual of healing and self-care from the stresses of every-day life.

Wildcrafted: an adaptogenic collection is the brainchild of Olivia Esquivel and her health-minded team at Southern Pressed Juicery.

The line currently includes three custom blends - Wildcrafted Beauty, Wildcrafted Brain and Wildcrafted Energy.
