The Benefits of Juice Plus!


If you have not spoken to Todd, Heather or me about it, you are probably wondering what the information is at the front desk with this strange stuff called "Juice Plus"! Before I give you some information (put together by Todd and Heather, I cannot take credit :-) I will give a personal testimonial; my family and I have been taking Juice Plus for over 10 years (the kids eat the gummies and love them) and have seen wonderful results, mostly in the boost in our immunity. Please take some time to read the information from Todd below and contact him or Heather if you are interested in more information!

From Todd............

Here at FormWell we want to make sure that all our members live a healthy lifestyle. We often talk about how important a proper diet is in achieving a healthy lifestyle. A big portion of diet that people miss out on is fruits and vegetables. Did you know that the USDA recommends 7 to 13 servings of fruits and vegetables every day. I know I don't get that. Good nutrition takes time and planning. That's why I take Juice Plus+® . Juice Plus+® helps you bridge the gap between the 7 to 13 servings of fruits and vegetables recommended by the USDA and the nutrition you actually get with your busy schedule. It is 17 different fruits and vegetables flashed freezed, dehydrated, then ground to a powder and put into capsules.

The other reason I take it is because it is the most studied supplement in history. There has been so much research from big name universities all proving the positive benefits of Juice Plus+®. Check out my website for more info and all the research studies. I know how much this helps me and will help you with living the life you want to live. Try it for yourself. Let me know if you have any questions.

Results of Juice Plus+®
Clinical Research

Clinical studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals have demonstrated that:
  • Juice Plus+® delivers key phytonutrients that are absorbed by the body.

    Investigators at the Tokyo Women's Medical University and the Medical University of Vienna studied the bioavailability (absorption by the body) of select nutrients found in Juice Plus+ and concluded that Juice Plus+ effectively increases antioxidant nutrients and folate. Other published studies have also shown various phytonutrients in Juice Plus+ are bioavailable. These studies were conducted by independent researchers at the Georgetown/UCLA, University of Sydney in Australia, King's College in London, Brigham Young University, the University of Arizona, the University of Florida and the University of Texas Health Science Center.

  • Juice Plus+® reduces oxidative stress.

    Several of these bioavailability studies also reported improved antioxidant capacity and reduced lipid peroxides, a key indicator of oxidative stress. In addition, researchers at the Medical University of Graz, Austria and the University of North Carolina, Greensboro found that Juice Plus+ Orchard, Garden and Vineyard Blends together were effective in reducing a marker for oxidative stress associated with aerobic exercise.

  • Juice Plus+® positively impacts markers of systemic inflammation.

    Chronic systemic inflammation is invisible, and can contribute to an increased risk for developing chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer. Investigators at the University of South Carolina found Juice Plus+ significantly decreased levels of three key biomarkers of inflammation in both groups.

  • Juice Plus+® helps support a healthy immune system.

    A healthy immune system protects the body, and good nutrition is important for a healthy immune system. Published clinical research indicated that Juice Plus+ supports several measures of immune function - in law school students at the University of Florida and in elderly people in a study conducted at the University of Arizona.

  • Juice Plus+® helps protect DNA.

    A diet rich in nutrition from fruits and vegetables is also important to protect DNA from oxidative damage, which can weaken the structural integrity of DNA. DNA becomes damaged and fragile when exposed to oxidative stress; antioxidants from fruits and vegetables can help protect DNA from this damage. Studies conducted have shown a reduction in DNA damage after taking Juice Plus+ in young adults at the University of Florida and in an elderly population at Brigham Young University.

  • Juice Plus+® positively impacts several key indicators of cardiovascular wellness.

    Homocysteine is an amino acid that is found in the blood. Maintaining healthy homocysteine levels is important for the heart and cardiovascular system. A clinical study at the University of Sydney in Australia reported a reduction in homocysteine levels - even though the levels of the Australian subjects were already within an acceptable range. Researchers in Foggia, Italy also found a reduction of homocysteine levels in subjects with elevated levels of homocysteine.

    Researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine found that subjects who consumed Juice Plus+ were better able to maintain the elasticity of arteries, even after a high-fat meal.

    Investigators at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine monitored several measures of vascular health in a low risk population who took Juice Plus+ for two years and noted various improvements with no adverse side effects.
