So what is Juice Plus+ and what does that mean? I am really excited to share that with you guys, seriously excited!!!Bit of background...
Back in February I went and listened to a nutrition talk (one of many that I have been attending, with various speakers) and as well as learning some very useful information on nutrition, I was also introduced to this product.
WHAT IS IT?
Well it's not Juice ;) Juice Plus+® is whole food based nutrition, including juice powder concentrates from 17 different fruits, vegetables and grains. Each ingredient is specially selected to provide a broad range of nutritional benefits. Including:
- Acerola Cherry
- Oat Bran
- Brown Rice Bran
You know how big on nutrition I am but I still struggle to get the 7 -13 serves EVERYDAY of raw fresh fruit and vege that we should, especially a diverse range. This product bridges the gap and is nothing but real fruit and vege in a capsule. REAL fruit and veg juiced at just above zero so there is no deterioration, dehydrated, sugar taken out, so all you are left with is the pure vitamins and minerals and most importantly LIVE enzymes (that NO isolate, synthetic supplement has) essential for us to live healthily :)
I am dead against artificial supplements so this is the perfect solution for me :)
The ONLY food group that can protect us from illness is plants - fruit and vege. It is a proven fact that the more acidic our diet and lifestyle (processed packaged food like products, coffee, soft drink, confectionery, alcohol, smoking, stress) the more likely we are to fall to illness, any illness, from the common cold to the big "C".
To have an alkaline diet (lots of fresh green leafy vegetable, some fruit, natural salt, pure water) is a proven way to stay healthy.
Most of us probably know this but we don't do it, not everyday at least. We have all the excuses under the sun:
- I don't have time
- Organic is too expensive
- I can't get hold of the seasonal produce I want
- I couldn't get to the shop
- I don't like "x, y, z"
- The kids don't like "x, y, z"
- On holiday it isn't available
Enter Juice Plus+ ;)
2 capsules, twice a day. Fruit in the morning, vege at night and I KNOW I am getting the pure, dense nutrients equivalent to 2kgs of fruit and vege a day - without the sugar - without the extra calories. For me, this is ALL about prevention. If this is what I need to do to improve my chances against illness and disease then this is what my family is doing! I know, without a doubt that our health will be better as a result.
How do I know this to be true? Well I have done my due diligence and looked into the research. The fact that there actually are 24 gold standard, peer reviewed medical journals on this product is a good place to start! This means that the product is actually tested in humans. Here are two of my favourite results:
Juice Plus+® delivers key phytonutrients that are absorbed by the body.This means that the body gets ALL of what is in the capsule and knows exactly what to do with it as it is REAL food! Unlike when you take a synthetic supplement and pee bright yellow because the body doesn't know how to process it properly and therefore gets rid of it! So you are actually only usually getting about 4% of what is in that synthetic supplement.By boosting your antioxidant levels with Juice Plus+ Fruit and Vege capsules and Berry Blend capsules (containing 9 different berries which we all know are ULTRA high in antioxidants) you can keep these free radicals under control but rather exciting for me it also assists with protein damage from exercise meaning better recovery!!!!
Juice Plus+® reduces oxidative stress.Oxidative stress happens when there are not enough antioxidants in your system to overcome free radical damage, which contribute to premature ageing, chronic disease such as Cancer, heart disease etc. Free radicals are unavoidable, they happen as a result of too much of the acidic way of life, stress, and also (even though you NEED to do it) exercise.
Juice Plus+® helps protect DNA
Juice Plus+® supports a healthy immune system
Juice Plus+® supports cardiovascular wellness
Juice Plus+® supports healthy skin
Juice Plus+® supports healthy gums
Juice Plus+® reduces biomarkers of systemic inflammation

Good health, just like bad health, doesn't happen over night. Just as doing one workout will not increase your muscle tone noticeably, but over time if you keep at it you WILL see results. Juice Plus works the same way. You won't take it and feel dramatically different within 24 hours. All our studies are done on 120 days. Why? Well it takes 120 days for you blood to turn over - so 120 days from now your blood will be new, what you do within those 120 days will determine whether the quality of your blood is better or worse - I am aiming for better! ;) What people notice and when they notice it when taking Juice Plus varies from person to person. Some people notice remarkable changes with the first couple of weeks, some the first two months, some don't report anything outwardly noticeable much at all. BUT what's going on INSIDE is the same for everyone, your BLOOD is getting HEALTHIER and, in turn, so are YOU! The longer you are taking Juice Plus the stronger your red blood cells and immune system are getting!! It doesn't mean you will never get sick again (although those that have been taking it for years report that they never do!!! Whoo hoo!!) but as time goes on you will probably get sick less and the severity of your sickness will be less too - because you are putting the right stuff in!!
So I have been taking Juice Plus fruit and vege capsules and Berry Blend for about 100 days. Here's what I have noticed:
Much more energy - this is HUGE for me as I have a VERY busy lifestyle and being in the fitness game I need to be onto of my game ;) My recovery has been better and I'm not getting the tired headaches, nor am I relying on coffee! YAY!
My skin colour has changed! I have a golden glow that was not there before! People keep asking if I've been on holidays!
I have been on acne treatment since I was 12 and have stopped taking it altogether. Whilst my skin is not perfect it certainly is getting HEAPS better and at times was worse than this even ON the medication - Berry Blend has helped with this a lot! Really looking forward to the next 120 days to see how much more it improves!!!!
Sorry if this is too much information but you Mum's out there will get this.... the haemorrhoids as a result of the kids giver me NO trouble AT ALL anymore due to being more regular than before :)
I am not getting muscle cramping anymore.
Others I know have reported these plus stronger nails, less hair loss, more hair growth, improved eczema, improved asthma, better sleep to name a few!!!
This is the best bit!!! For the equivalent of 2kg of fruit and very in your diet EVERY DAY the cost is a mere $2.48 a day, that's less than a coffee and a whole lot less money and time than buying, preparing and consuming that amount of fruit and vege!
One of the BEST parts of this company though, is if you have a child between the ages of 4 and 18 and you order the product the child gets it FREE in the form of yummy gummies!!! - My kids LOVE these it is not a chore to get them to eat them at all! It is all part of the Child Health Study which you can read more about here.
So that works out to be $1.25 each a day!! 2kg worth of nutrients form fruit and vege for you and about 1kg worth for the kids!
If you want to up the anti - as in ANTIOXIDENTS - even more you can add Berry Blend which is and extra capsule twice a day taken with the others. It contains a HUGE amount of antioxidants and phytonutrients - it contains Grape, Blueberry, Cranberry, Blackberry, Bilberry, Raspberry, Black Currant, Elderberry, Pomegranate. Certainly a few more there than I would usually consume daily! This takes it to approximately $3.80 a day.
We have one other product that is Juice Plus Complete with when paired with the capsules is a great way to keep check on your nutrition by using it as one of your six small meals a day. It's all natural, all plant based and YUMMY in vanilla or choc flavour. PERFECT for busy people!
Each product is shipped to you in a 4 month supply (the 120 days) but you will only pay monthly. Here is how it works:
Juice Plus capsules (8 bottles, 4 month supply) $292.60 shipped automatically every 4 months. Or you can opt to pay monthly $74 month = $9.95 freight added to 1st payment.
