On my bio page, I mention how we take Juice Plus+® . We have had inquiries for more information, so I thought it might be worth putting together a review. As we all know and are learning, there are toxins in our environment at every turn. They are in our food, soil and most consumer products. Our bodies need all the fruits and veggies we can give it to detoxify and heal. We LOVE Juice Plus+® ! It has been one of the many changes my family has made over the last few years. We eat lots of fruits and vegetables and also take Juice Plus+® on a daily basis.
When we first met with our pediatric specialist, she introduced us to a more natural approach to healing the body. We had just come off the winter of my son having chronic ear infections and continuous rounds of antibiotics. I really was hoping to get his immune system functioning and help him more than I had been with previous methods. Juice Plus+® was the cornerstone of her recommendations. As I began to research Juice Plus+® , I found this whole food nutrition, is the healthiest fruits, vegetables and grains, juiced and dried at low temperatures, removing the water and most of the sugar, salt and bulk (it is also gluten free). These nutritious juice powders are then put into capsules and chewables. Juice Plus+® has over 28 published studies proving the benefits in preventing disease and improving your health. Our whole family began to take them immediately!
So after being on Juice Plus+ for almost 2 years, here are the details of ‘Our Story’. My son is almost never sick. I would not have ever imagined being able to say this! I mean kids get sick a lot, right? We have been able to fight off common colds, stomach bugs and who knows what else. If we do start to get run down, we double up on Juice Plus+® and run in for a quick chiropractic adjustment and within 24-48 hours, have fought it off. For a mom who saw how sick her son was from daycare and just the stresses on his system from the dairy allergy, vaccines, etc. this was and is INVALUABLE! My son was in daycare part-time up until 8 months ago, even in daycare he was not coming home sick. His immune system was working amazingly well! So not only do we rarely get sick, but once I found out I was pregnant, I did not have to take a prenatal vitamin (full of synthetic ingredients). I took one extra capsule of orchard, garden and vineyard blend. I survived a winter being pregnant and it might be worth noting, NO flu shot, and was not sick once. We do also take a fish oil, vitamin D3 and probiotics. In addition to taking our vineyard, garden and orchard blend everyday, we try our best to limit processed foods and eat a clean, real food diet.
Juice Plus+® is the next best thing to fruits and vegetables. It helps bridge the gap, as we say, from what is recommended daily and what we actually eat. Let’s face it we are all, super busy, all the time. I know for me with an older toddler some meals he eats all his veggies and other meals not so much, it is just hit or miss. What he does not eat at a meal we will usually save for a snack later, but you just never know.
Did you know the current daily recommendation is 7 to 13 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables? It can be done but most of us will fall short. The nutrients in fruits and vegetables can maximize the physical and intellectual development of our children as they grow through the school-age years. They also increase our energy levels. They help our bodies simply function more efficiently. I like to think of Juice Plus+® as our insurance policy to reach this daily goal.
Juice Plus+® is supported by leading health professionals. The experts range from pediatricians such as the Dr. Sears’, dieticians, oncologists and even dermatologists. Unlike traditional vitamin supplements, Juice Plus+® contains ONLY naturally occurring phytonutrients from the fruits and vegetables themselves. Juice Plus+® also contains NO dyes, no excito-toxins such as aspartame/ sucralose, and no hidden chemical additives. It is the most researched brand name nutritional product in the world. Numerous clinical studies have proven that Juice Plus+®
- Delivers key antioxidants and phytonutrients that are easily absorbed by the body
- Reduces oxidative stress
- Reduces key biomarkers of systemic inflammation
- Supports a healthy immune system
- Helps protect DNA from oxidative damage
- Supports cardiovascular wellness

Do you or your children get sick all the time? Or do you worry that they barely seem to eat anything at all and when they do they ask for sugar or processed snack foods? Do you feel tired and run down? If you can relate and answer yes, to any of these questions, then Juice Plus+® would be extremely beneficial to you and your family!
In addition to my immediate family, most of my extended family also takes Juice Plus+®. I have shared it with those that I care about the most and am happy to be able to share it with you!
