It is a fact that, anti-oxidants and micronutrients act together to protect your body from oxidative stress and help support your immune system. Fruits and vegetables of good quality are the best source for this.
The body is amazing! It can heal itself from most things and it has an amazing ability to adapt to what we ask of it. However, in these processes toxins are also created and some wear and tear happens. To limit the damages and optimize the processes we need certain “additives” in our blood stream. Fruits and vegetabes contain such additives that work in synergy in the form of different antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, fibre and phytonutrients. All in a natural blend that is easily absorbed by the body.
All western countries seem to agree to recommend at least 5 portions of fruits and vegetables a day but with the quality of the fruits and vegetables available this number should probably be more like 10 portions.
Different fruits and vegetables provide different micronutrients. An apple has thousands. In order to get the best benefits you should make sure you not only get enough fruits and vegetables but also that you don’t always eat the same 3-4 sorts.
I try to be pretty conscious about eating healthily but a simple food log showed me that I often didn’t get a good variety of fruits and vegetables. So do the food logs of many of my clients – also the athletes. Sometimes it is just not possible or it is to much of a hassle.
I now consciously make the effort to get different fruist and vegetables in my diet – but to make sure I get the widest spectrum, I have found these cold pressed, dehydrated fruits and vegetables in capsules called Juice Plus+. It sounds kind of sci-fi like but it is all natural and the research is incredible. It shows that the phytonutrients are well absorbed in the blood stream and increases plasma antioxidants and folate, reduces DNA damage, improves cardio-vascular health, reduces oxidative stress.
Well, in a more every-day language here are some of the specific results:
One study published in The Journal of Nutrition looked at indicators of oxidative stress and immunity in a group of well trained firemen showed that after 8 weeks, the firemen taking Juice Plus+ had a few less sick days compared to the group on placebo and after 28 weeks they had only two thirds of the sick days of the placebo group.
Another study based on 100.000 respondents of both adults and children shows that 90 % of the children experienced a positive effect of some sort and 93% of the adults.
On parameters such as reduction of
- sick days
- over the counter medicine use
- doctor’s visits
- school/work missed
the numbers lie around 50 % for both children and adults.
This convinced me that Juice Plus+ is not a hype product and I wanted to become a distributor.
I recommend this -especially – to people who tend to be sick a lot, who lead stressful lives or who exercise a lot.

Juice PLUS+® is so much more than a product containing vitamins and minerals, as it is based on whole foods, using nutrient-rich varieties of fruit, vegetables and berries. These are processed with the greatest of care into highly concentrated fruit, vegetable and berry powders to create the Juice PLUS+ Capsules.
