Your Cart Is Empty, How Unlucky!
Each of the vitamins is present, often in higher quantities, in a multivitamin. The Orchard Blend lists cranberries, oranges, cherries, and pineapple as ingredients. Health Concerns with Juicing Juicing could have potential food-medication interactions and medical complications for some people. The scientific research CLEARLY suggests that powdered fruits and vegetables will not provide similar benefits as fruits and vegetables. This is most often due to the fact that many of these nutrients are in or very near the skin of fruits and vegetables, which gets discarded as pulp when fruits and vegetables are juiced. If using a juicer or blender that retains the pulp, the end result will be similar to the whole fruit. You can also add the discarded pulp as well.
Tomatoes lower your risk of cancer especially testicular cancer in men and is good for the heart due to its high amount of lycopene.
They blend very well with many vegetables and are pleasant tasting. Packed with antioxidants, these do so much for your general health. They are antiviral and antibacterial. Berries are good for the blood.
Blueberries and blackcurrants help diarrhea and urinary infections. Raspberries are good for menstrual cramps. Strawberries have lots of lycopene and help the cardiovascular system. While berries aren't the easiest to juice on the best fruits and vegetables list, they should become a staple in your juicing regimen.
Cabbage is fantastic for the stomach. If you had or have ulcer problems cabbage is a must for you to juice daily. Broccoli is part of the cruciferous family. Loaded with antioxidants, it also has a good amount of vitamin C.
If you are concerned about lung, colon or breast cancer, have raw broccoli a few times a week. Mix it with some tomato juice. It has chlorophyll, so it helps to regulate insulin and blood sugar.
Celery is great at cleansing the digestive system of uric acid. So if you have gout issues, definitely include celery in your diet daily. If you retain water daily and have lots of bloating, celery is your 1 go to veggie! If you are starting a detoxifying regimen, be sure to make celery as a regular base to your juices- its diuretic properties will help to remove the toxins from your body with ease.
There is potassium in the tops so juice them too. It helps to balance out the sodium in the stalk. Carrots are surprisingly and deliciously sweet when juiced. They have too many good nutrients packed inside to be missed. They have a high beta carotene content making them great for skin, brain, fighting cancer, protecting arteries, fighting infections and boosting the immune. Many doctors believe as well as studies have shown that they help to eliminate putrefactive bacteria in the colon and help to rid of intestinal parasites.
They blend very well with many ingredients, including one of my favorites…. Apple carrot juice is a powerhouse and one of the best fruits and vegetables drink combos. Yes, they can be juiced. They have an exceptional amount of vitamin, in the form of beta carotene. They are a good source of vitamin C, manganese, copper, fiber, B6, potassium and iron. Sweet potatoes are anti-inflammatory and really can help people with arthritis and other types of inflammation.
Cranberries prevent bacteria from forming in the bladder, prostate and kidneys. It also deodorizes urine. They contain mannose, which is what helps to keep the entire urinary track from getting and infection.
They also can help prevent kidney stones. They are antiviral and antibiotic. Because they are so sour, they need to be combined with either water, or another fruit to be palatable. I like to add apple or grape juices to the mix. Parsley has a lot of chlorophyll and is excellent for the blood. It gives you a spark of energy and has anti-parasitic properties. It helps with the kidney and gallstones, cleanses the liver and supports the heart. Many people also say it helps their arthritis.
And one last thing- it helps to deodorize the body as well as your garlic or onion breath! Besides for its general leafy green benefits including chlorophyll, dandelion is specifically good for cleaning out the kidney, liver, gallbladder, bowel and pancreas.
Because of these things, it does help many people with acne problems as it helps to clear elimination blockages in the body. Wheatgrass is one of the finest greens out there. It restores health to the sick and brings up red blood counts for a healthy body. It stimulates DNA repair, neutralizes the worst free radicals called superoxides and protects from cancer. It contains over 20 enzymes, including the enzyme catalase which breaks down harmful hydrogen peroxide in the body and prevents it from harming cells.
Wheatgrass is very nutrient dense, and includes provitamin A, chlorophyll, potassium, magnesium, among many, many others. According to several studies, the only nutrient it seems to lack is vitamin D and B People have used wheatgrass to reverse cancer and many other health issues with success.
It is easy to grow or find in markets these days. Unfortunately not all juicers can juice wheatgrass with ease. Many can, but if you have a model that cannot you can buy a special wheatgrass juicer. If I had to put an order to the list on this page, wheatgrass would be number 1 on the list for the best fruits and vegetables to juice- soley for it's health benefits.
Citrus are one of the most popular of the best fruits and vegetables to juice. They contain carotenoids, bioflavonoids and oodles of vitamin C which help to fight cancer. They lower blood pressure and help to reduce plaque from arteries. Citrus are antiviral, antibacterial and super yummy. They had a burst of flavor to almost any juice. Okay, so, there are so many good fruits and veggies.
Here are some that get special status, right below some of the best…. We started with Juice Plus with the idea that we would give it a year…. I am happy to say that we are nearing the end of this year and have had nothing more than a cold that would try and start and then just end! The Fall is generally always a time of year my husband gets a terrible cold that goes on and on and on. SO FAR so good! The only difference is that we added Juice Plus to our daily routine!
For those wanting to break a part the capsules for your kids you can absolutely do this. We have done this for over 2 years for our daughter, since she was 8 or 9 months old.
We were recommended by our rep that our daughter take 1 veggie and 1 fruit per day, rather than the adult dose of 2 each. We put 1 capsule into a couple of tablespoons of applesauce and add cinnamon. Have read internet sites, but proper info and price would be more helpful please. Many of the other comments on this thread are from reps, perhaps one of them can get back to you. Hi Amanda, If you would like to add me on Facebook i can tell you all the information you need to know!
I found your review interesting. Do you do reviews for other companies? I started with Le-Vel Thrive 6 weeks ago and I know what it has done for me. The all natural Lifestyle capsule is taken first thing in the morning. The DFT Derma Fushion Technology patch controls appetite, gives mental clarity, and manages pain the capsule is amazing for pain management and is absorbed right into your skin. Please check out my site at http: Hi Kristen, No I am not doing any reviews at the moment.
Personally I would stay away from anything that promotes weight loss, as I am already blessed with a high metabolism which is a challenge when pregnant and breastfeeding. Its a lot of money for me but Im tempted to buy it if its worth it, could someone tell me more about it, exactly whats in it and is it worth it?
Combined with healthy meals and exercise… I enjoy eating lots of fruit and veg during the day as it is.. The protein it uses is soy. Some people prefer to avoid say as it acts like an estrogen in the body. Copy and pasted from a search The contents that make up this shake are solid and this is one of the top selling shakes currently on the market.
Unfortunately there is a significant factor that, in our opinion, lowers the overall quality of the shake. Upon examining the ingredients list, we see fructose listed. Fructose click has become controversial as of late. So much so that the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has conducted studies that suggest that fructose can even cause weight gain.
In our opinion the sugar level is a bit high at 7grams per serving for a meal replacement shake. A truly great, albeit pricey meal replacement shake that we highly recommend. If fructose was removed and the sugar levels were lower we could rate it higher up on the list. Maybe this will shed some light on soy for you all. I was skeptical as well and everyone gets to educated themselves and make the best informed decision for them personally.
And here is my overall take…once these other companies start investing into medical research to actually show that their products get into the bloodstream and cells and improve biomarkers for inflammation, the immune system, the cardiovascular system, improved DNA, skin and dental markers, etc. Also to his other comment re vitamin amounts etc. Juice Plus is a wholefood supplement it has a food label not a nutrition label because it is classed as food not a vitamin supplement.
This is the problem people do not understand that juice plus can not list every phytonutrient per fruit or veg as one piece of fruit can have phytonutrients in it. Plus every fruit and vegetable can be different in amounts. Based on size of it is organic and so on. Just look at the research it says it all. Also to comment on the ORAC value. The research on all three blend in the body is beyond impressive.
Here are some links that might shed some more light. Three groups in the study…placebo, group with the garden and orchard blends, and a group with garden, orchard and vineyard blend.
I have more if you want them. My life has been forever changed. The reason it is the first ingredient is because the molecular weight of sugar is so high compared to the nutrients. What is in the gummies is the disease-fighting micronutrition of 17 fruits and veggies, and they have been tested for bioavailability as well.
Just to note, I am not a Juice Plus representative, but am getting a lot of specific questions about the products. I will not be posting these comments. Please check into the Juice Plus website or find a rep if you have detailed questions. Hi everyone i agree this article is very good, i am a juiceplus distributer and i like to see results from juiceplus users both negative and positive, it can b very beneficial to many people including myself, but i also understand it isnt for everyone, if anyone has any questions then please feel free to msg or email me angelus hotmail.
I then became a distributor. Amanda h — If you are still looking for answers this specific question feel free to email me! Laura can you provide me with information to where you cam to the conclusion not to like soy protein powder.
Please feel free to email me at sdunnjuiceplus hotmail. As a consumer of JP, I have seen many benefits of it. I understand that society has been trained that if you see it on the shelf or on TV enough, its gotta be good right? Its hard to get people to understand healthy eating doesnt come in a pill.
No matter what the product claims. If you are not eating healthier and continue with processed foods, sodas, etc. However, you slowly change your diet and remove the harmful products from your diet, you will start to feel better. I was a customer for months and then became a Rep. JP and the new lifestyle changes to our diet, we saw our lives start to change for the better.
LEss doctor visits, no allergy meds, no prescription pills and better gums! We stopped buying multivitamins for the family bc we get our vitamins from food. The only supplement we take is Fish Oil high quality. Since I am in control of their diets, I know when to add and when to remove. Hope that makes sense! I understand one may get tired of taking the chewys everyday, which is why every four months, you can switch from chewy to capsules. So my child will take the chewys and I will order capsules.
All of us switch out. Some days, I open the capsule and put in my sons shakes. Other days, I give him the chewys. So I hope that addresses the concern of thinking you are stuck with capsules or chewys. It has a nutritional fact label not a supplement label. You can not compare apples to oranges. Not many on the market offer all these certifications.
Wellness Coach and tell my clients to know the ingredients you eat. Its hard with the way our society is programmed.
I hope this gives some validity to JP. It is not a market scam. Its a company that actually invests in its product and its quality to their customers. I developed preeclampsia with my last pregnancy and could not stabilize my blood pressure. My doctor recommended this product. Since taking it my blood pressure has returned to normal ranges and I no longer take blood pressure pills. I do agree with this companies philosophy that their product does bridge that gap.
It is Whole Food. Yes I am impressed with this company as it is the ONLY company that can provide you with scientific peer reviewed research. It is has been researched and published in over 30 medical journals around the world and has had no negative findings. I believe this is why so many doctors and nurses as well as dentist are recommending this product to their patients. Reason why I decided to try the product. As far as price goes. So why care about the cost of keeping yourself and family healthy.
Just look at it as a really good health insurance rider!!!! The dental concerns well a lot of things we basically eat turn to sugar.
My father has gum disease. Since taking JP his condition has improved. No I am not a distributor but maybe in the future when school is over. Yes I will recommend this product to all my pregnant clients. If you need a distributor I can recommend mine. I also recommend you look at http: The package states that the adult dose is FOUR of each of the two types. I just read the label on my JP bottle. Is it better to take the fruits and veggies twice a day verses all at once?
As an adult taking 8 chewables seems like a lot to digest. You can split the dose in any way that you would like. I usually take half in the morning in my smoothie and the other half at lunchtime. I tend to get an energy boost shortly after eating the gummies. I would like to put my 12 year old son on the capsules but I am going to buy them from a friend who has unopened bottles left over. Can anyone tell me how many he should take of each a day?
He is starting to get really bad spots. Many thanks in advance. You need to give things at least that long to give them a chance to work. As far as cost goes, you probably spend more on maintenance for your replaceable vehicle than you would maintaining your irreplacable body. I waited until I experienced so many positive changes in my own health before becoming a wellness educator, so I can tell you on a personal level it worked for me.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me through my website… http: I have also just started taking JP this week hoping it will help me as well with inflammation and OA. Before this hit me I was very active with the farm, horses and grandkids. As well as changing lifestyle habits I am hoping this helps as well so I can get back to my old self or close. Also remember this product has NOT been shown to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent ANY disease no matter what any health professional involved with the marketing of this product may infer , but fruit and veggies will, make sure you clean them well.
Remember, if it looks like a duck, quacks likes a duck, and swims like a duck,…………, and I think this duck is about money. Wake up people to the marketing scams, you want to live healthy, eat a healthy diet. There is no substitute. Here is some food for thought. I completely disagree with all the negative comments about juice plus. I have been on the product for now for 10 weeks.
My health has increased drastically. I have lost over 3 stone that was much needed. This has helped me get back to the gym recently too. I agree they are costly when the whole household is taking them but the benefits have definitely outweighed the cost for me. Any form of food in capsules is not real food,only an industry product. End of story with this Juice Plus.
I eat real fruits and real vegetables on a daily basis and I feed them to my kids too. Whoever feeds whatever solo precious capsules,juices etc to his kids is plain irresponsible for me. To the lovers good for you. To the haters, you are entitled to your opinion whether personal or professional. If this product changes only lifestyle, then what is wrong with that? If you see no difference, then stop using it. If you had a reaction to it then again, discontinue use.
No one is forcing anyone to use it product. Some of the comments on here are just a waste of a good tread. Probably the most sensible comment on the page thus far.
YMMV as they say. I am not too fond of swallowing pills, but I have been taking chewable vitamins for over a year now. I have heard of Juice Plus before and thought the idea to be a good one, especially considering the contents and their synergistic properties. Natalia, have you tried juice plus?
Maybe you should learn to reconsider how you say thing! I have been taking Juice PLus for eleven years and became a distributor ten years ago.
The first thing that thrilled me about Juice Plus was that my cravings for sugar greatly diminished and my son started craving carrots. All my blood work has improved through the years. I get compliments all the time about how young I look, love that!!
I appreciate the fact that Juice Plus offers educational seminars conducted by highly credentialed and successful health care professionals all over the world. As far as the cons go here, I am not aware of any comprehensive multivitamin that even exists that contains everything in one pill and that has any independent clinical research to back its safety or efficacy.
Comparing Juice Plus to a multi is like comparing apples to oranges except the multivitamin has no apples or oranges that Juice Plus has including thousands of phyto-nutrients, live enzymes. You can order the orchard or garden separately if you choose to do so.
The sugars used are only naturally occurring sugars. Erika — college students can get on it for free. Or at least half off by splitting with another college students. Casey, here is some information about xylitol and how it is produced: Thanks for this honest review of Juice Plus. I have been approached by a friend of my fathers to get involved in selling the product via network marketing, but I need to investigate the claims further.
I am already very much into juicing fresh organic fruits and vegetables, I have seen the benefits for my health, especially my hair and skin. These capsule seem like a good idea in theory only as a supplement , especially for those who are too busy and juicing can be messy — however until I review the reseach claims I will not by buying the product or getting involved in selling either.
By the way the link in the article to Juice Plus research is broken not found — the correct link can be found here: You can order just the Garden Blend. Contact your distributor or go directly to The Juice Plus Company. Let me know if you need help. Hi the pills are a little lrg….
Juice plus is not a meal replacement. There are pros and cons just like anything we actually eat. I have found way more pros than cons…and its to fit each individuals. Overall, I have felt much more healthier since starting the regime. Kudos to Juice Plus and to each his own. I have a science background and my husband is an RN. We have 2 little kids and have incorporated Juice Plus into our daily lives.
My daughter has sensory processing disorder a sensory seeker and puts her hands all over everything then into her mouth. After a year on Juice Plus, she literally never gets sick. I think Juice Plus is amazing and for all the skeptics out there, please do your research on the hard data.
Come on people, you cant improve what nature already provided I cant see how heating and concentrating to a powder fruits and veggies can bring you good health. Eat fresh fruits and veggies and then watch your health skyrocket.. There just big pharma profiting from sickness and now giving the magic pill to restore the health that they already stole. It is impossible to deliver the nutrients of five servings of fruits in several capsules weighing mg.
As a Registered Holistic Nutritionist I believe we should be getting our nutrients from whole foods however in this fast paced world, we are not taking the time and effort to do so. I am on the road a week out of every month and find it hard to stick to a healthy dietary routine in certain parts of the country.
I take Juice Plus myself and think of it as an insurance policy. The biggest differences I have noticed is in my hair and nails and my quality of sleep. It has all improved immensely. I take a probiotic daily as well as a fish oil supplement and find that works well for me.
I have always been a strong believer in find what works for you and stick with it. If you like Juice Plus, fabulous! If you prefer to get your nutrients from your food, good for you! In terms of peer review those peers are usually on the JP payroll. I have been looking into this for months and have yet to see an independently funded, peer reviewed paper that shows any real benefits…..
I do not have a problem with adults taking in addition to a regular diet! However I do Not think kids should took take it until teenage years!
Parents who chose to do it for them is fine. But also teach your kids to eat fruits and Vegs. I find it bezarre that your son now loves carrots after taking a pill. Each time I here somebody raving about this product they are always selling it.
My sister gave it to me. I should say that these products work for me. I have a good relaxing sleep and when I wake up ,I feel so fresh. I work at night and sleeps during day time. Juice plus really helps me a lot.
I would like to buy these product but I am wondering where to buy here in Cebu Philippines. Anyone can recommend where I will order Juice Plus? My second issue was with the sugar substitute comment, but it was addressed in a previous post in that only naturally occurring sugars are used. It is a bridge between what you should eat and what you are actually or not actually eating.
If you consume enough raw fruits and vegetables to suffice a serving a day intake, then bravo. I know that I do not. This product simply lets me get a little closer to a fully balanced nutritional diet. If anyone has any comments concerns or direct questions you can visit my webpage at http: Our family has been taking JP for almost 3 months. We noticed changes right away though we made minor changes to our diet as well.
We usually ate well but did like to snack a lot and I was a fast food momma with three kids. After starting JP, all our tastes changed and we ate better. That is a very brief summary. If it works for you, great. If not, to each his own. Please visit the website to get current information, as new studies come out regularly, showing benefits to the nutrients of Juice Plus.
My husband and I have not missed a day in nearly 14 years, and we also grow organic foods, in soil and hydroponically. No one will tell you that this takes the place of a healthy diet, only that it fills the gaps between our best efforts and the servings currently recommended for daily optimal health.
I welcome any questions. You are entitled to your opinion. I appreciate the others who tried to offer objective feedback. Single Mom on Juice Plus for 10 yrs… started in during a sinus infection fever. Started taking had no more sinus infections since … Juice Plus is all natural and its a Whole Food Nutrition that is why it has nutrition facts and not Supplement facts.
It is worth it to try. It takes 21 days for your blood to cycle through so the 4 month supply is a good test to see what it does. My siblings all have high Blood pressure, migraines, and both brothers have had strokes.. I have had none of this and I am at present lbs down from It is not a cure all that is true..
But for the benefits it does provide I love it. Hi, what i find most off putting about juice plus is the distributors hyping it up as some sort of miracle health giving food. I eat healthily most of the time and take a good but inexpensive all round multi vitamin and on average get probably 2 colds a year. A work colleague sold me juice plus complete about 5 months ago and I stopped taking my usual multivitamins and used this instead.
Just one juice a day to maintain my normal weight. Over priced over hyped in my opinion and only beneficial to people who were not eating as healthy as they should before using this product. Hi, while I wait for my first comment to be moderated I have read most of the comments. Firstly, in the UK where I live the recommendation is to consume at least 5 a day fruit and veg not the large amounts I am reading in the comments, maybe the fruit and veg here is more nutritious who knows.
I also see juice plus being promoted as more than a food supplement which it is not. When the only juice flavours are vanilla and chocolate, the most prevalent sweet flavours on the shelves I find that hard to understand. If you are healthy and have a good diet its a waste of money and if you feel you need supplements on a regular basis then look at your overall diet. In the provided link, it clearly says those studies are funded by none other than Juice Plus!
I agree that it is possible that funding can sway results of a study. What is the design? Was a placebo used? Length of the study? I just read this entire thread of comments and needed to weigh in.
My wife got me some and asked me to start taking it and so to keep peace in the house I agreed. I am not a health nut and pretty much each whatever I want as I travel a bit for work.
I have to say that after taking Juice Plus for 3 weeks I noticed a difference. The biggest things were I felt more rested in the mornings when I woke up.
Had more energy right out of the gates which was a nice change. Also I use to get at least colds each winter and now when I feel like a cold might be coming on it just goes away. This stuff really works for me. I consistently take 2 per day first thing each morning and before I go to bed and that works for me.
My kids take it as well as my wife and our experience has been very good. We DO NOT sell this stuff as I do not get pulled into the marketing of it, but just have a unbiased and very skeptical experience. I do not take any other vitamins or supplements. I think like anything else out there like Juice Plus you have to give it at lest 30 days of consistently taking it to really see and feel difference.
Some folks I know see the difference right away within 1 week while others it takes longer weeks. Nothing replaces eating healthy but my life style makes that very difficult so JP is the answer for me. Oh yeah, I have to say that I listen to my wife more often now as its made me healthier! It is a great way to bridge the gap! When you eat better you crave better foods its just a natural thing that occurs!
It is the fastest result you will see and that alone will make all other effects possible. If you consume more than the required amount of fruits and veggies and they are the remedy along with clear liquids for more ailments than you can see that the claims people are making are more than just talk. Try it for 4 months, drink a glass of water with the 2 capsules of red and 2 capsules of green for adults or 1 and 1 for children 12 and under open capsules and pour into yogurt, purees, etc.
Or if you opt for the gummies my favorite as they are my sweet treat for the day 4 red and 4 green for adults and 2 red and 2 green for kids. These ingredients are rife with contamination of heavy metals, industrial building chemicals, and carcinogens. A recent study reported that those taking supplements have a higher incidence of cancer. I feel this could well be from all the crap in our supplements from the Chinese and Mexican sources.
My neighbor noticed the difference in my energy levels when I was on the capsules.
