Invest in your Health – Invest in a Nutribullet!


We spoke to Integrated health practitioner , Dr Hennie Palm about the benefits of the latest health inducing whizzer on the market, the Nutribullet (HIRSCH STOCK CODE 2319.)

– Here’s what he had to say:

“Let food by thy medicine” is a philiosophy I live by. I see the benefits of ingesting raw organic produce daily in the health improvements of my patients. Research keeps stacking up to show the health benefits of eating plenty of raw vegetables and fruit. Most of us do not eat enough raw fruit and vegetables, and we have non-nutritious meals, especially breakfast that often only consists of some unhealthy processed cereal or a slice or two of toast. The most reliable way to ensure that our bodies get the nourishment they need is through NUTRITION EXTRACTION. When fruit, vegetables seeds and nuts are broken down to their most digestible form before they are consumed, the digestive system can easily absorb the best they have to offer. Enter the NUTRIBULLET, it does just that.

Having used my blender for years to prepare nutritious smoothies for breakfast, I was sceptical about the Nutribullet, until I discovered the attachment that transforms nuts and seeds into easily digestible powder. Pour the nut/seed powder mix into your Nutribullet blender, add as many berries as you can for an antioxidant boost, vegetables, fruit and 30 seconds later you have breakfast. Start the New Year fresh. Fresh vegetables based smoothies.” Said Palm


The NUTRIBULLET has a 600 watt motor, an all new extractor blade and a cyclonic action that breaks the pulp, skin, seeds and stems of the plants that we eat down into tiny drinkable particles, unlocking the full scope of nutrients contained within them.


The NUTRIBLAST is a nutrient extracted drink designed to feed your system as many servings of easily absorbable vegetables, fruit, seeds and nuts as possible. The basic formula is plenty of vegetables some fruit (mainly for the flavour), and protein such as nuts, avocado, peas, a raw egg, whey protein and some seeds.   Add enough water to cover ingredients, twist blade and blend.

There is nothing to beat the overall feeling of well being that comes from true nourishment, and the more you blast, the better you’ll feel.


The NUTRIBLAST comes with a fantastic menu guide to get you on the road to perfect health.




Excitement is rising in the Centurion business community where the ten 2014 “Margaret Hirsch Business Woman of the Year Competition” monthly winners are due to meet for their final  interviews with Margaret Hirsch, COE of the Hirsch Group.  With strong business women participating, each in their own unique capacity, Margaret has been delighted with the response and the calibre of participants. 

Over the last few years, Margaret has been the recipient of a variety of awards to acknowledge her contribution to the business world in South Africa, from the BWASA  Business Woman of the Year (Entrepreneur) Award in 2012 to SANLAM’s Lifetime Achievement Award in Entrepreneurship in 2013.

“Winning these awards has been wonderful – both for Hirsch’s and for me personally – and I wanted to see this happening to other women in business.”  Margaret explained when she decided to launch the Margaret Hirsch Business Woman of the Year Award in each area in which Hirsch’s operates throughout South Africa. “As women, we tend not to be assertive enough.  There are so many fantastic women out there who are not coming forward to be acknowledged for their contribution to the business world, and through this competition, we have helped to encourage them to do so.”

Kiddies Cooking Classes with Whirlpool

IMG_1805 IMG_1819 IMG_1830IMG_1818

Hirsch’s Centurion together with Whirlpool hosted a Kiddies Cooking Class on Saturday 10 January 2015 – and what a huge success it was.

The attendance exceeded what we were hoping for, with some of the children bring friends along – a total of 47 children joined in the fun.

Mixing, stirring, measuring, baking and tasting were all the order of the day.  The children made cupcakes from scratch – measuring their own ingredients, cracking eggs and generally having a wonderful time, under the watchful eye of Marilou of Whirlpool.  The impressive Whirlpool Jet Chef – manned by Brand Ambassador Tiaan –  ensured that the cupcakes were baked in record time – after which the decorating fun began.

Joanne (PRO for Hirsch’s Centurion) taught the group to make and colour a butter icing – and after consensus was reached about the taste – the children had free reign to decorate the cupcakes and of course – eat them!

The feedback from the children and parents was very positive and we plan to host more of these events in future.

A big shout out goes to Whirlpool – Marilou and Tiaan –  for helping us host such a hugely successful event.

Hirsch’s Centurion and Centurion Lions bring joy to underprivileged children at Christmas


Hirsch’s Centurion partnered with the Centurion Lions this December in a drive to collect toys for less fortunate children.

Our customers and staff enthusiastically supported the initiative, with generous donations and support received from the women who attend  the Hirsch’s monthly Ladies Networking events. 

Ladies from the SACBW (SA Council of Business Women) as well as the Centurion Hospice contributed to this worthy cause.


Pictured below are Tania Mulder and Alison Hadley de Cock representing the Centurion Lions receiving the donations from Hirsch’s Centurion PRO Joanne Brunette with Linda Levendag:
