1. I already eat a ton of fruits and vegetables - why should I take Juice Plus+? This is what I thought too - my family was eating a mostly vegan diet when we began taking Juice Plus+, our diet consisting mainly of fresh fruits and vegetables. What I didn't realize was just how many fruits and vegetables are needed to maintain good health. The USDA now recommends we eat 10 - 12 servings per day, up to 17 servings if you are an athlete, highly active or have special health concerns. And we need variety. "Eat a rainbow" is the new tagline, and it's true. With Juice Plus+ you get the whole food nutrition of 25 different fruits, vegetables and berries - all harvested and processed at the peak of ripeness, including all the extra good parts we normally discard. How many different colors did you eat today? 2. I already take a daily multi-vitamin - how is Juice Plus+ different? Juice Plus+ is not a multi-vitamin. Instead of isolated vitamins and minerals created in a laboratory, Juice Plus+ contains the natural elegance of whole foods including tens of thousands to micronutrients that are recognized and readily absorbed by our body's cells. Multi-vitamins produce "expensive urine", Juice Plus+ supports good health. 3. Is Juice Plus+ organic? This was my biggest question and what actually made me delay taking Juice Plus+ for 2 years after first hearing about it. This was because I wasn't educated. Now I know that each and every single batch of Juice Plus+ is tested to ensure it is not only pesticide and herbicide free but also completely free of GMOs, gluten, bacteria, yeast and molds and is certified Kosher. To me, this means that Juice Plus+ is better than organic! FYI: in the United States organic labeling only requires products be 80% clean...meaning 20% of that USDA organic product may be tainted with chemicals we are trying to avoid by paying more for that organic label!! 4. How do all those fruits and vegetables fit in a bottle? Excellent question! The foods used to make Juice Plus+ are picked at the peak of ripeness, juiced with hours of harvest and dried at a very low temperature. Most of the water, sugar, sodium and fiber is removed. But all of the natural goodness is maintained - over 30 independent clinical studies have proven this to be true. And this is why medical professionals including many MDs recommend Juice Plus+ to their patients. 5. I heard my kids can get Juice Plus+ for free - how does that work? Adults who take Juice Plus+ can sponsor a child between the ages of 4 and 21 to take Juice Plus for free for up to four years. This is part of the company's commitment to "inspiring healthy living around the world". Initial results of the study indicate that children who eat Juice Plus+ begin to eat more fruits and vegetables, drink more water, have fewer sick visits to the pediatrician, miss fewer days of school due to illness and take fewer prescription drugs! Both of my children have been taking Juice Plus+ for over a year now and I'm please to report they do eat voluntarily eat healthier and we've only visited their doctor for annual well visits. 6. What company makes Juice Plus+? The Juice Plus+ Company (originally called NSA) has been in business since 1970. The company's founder Jay Martin, a school teacher turned entrepreneur, is still the president and CEO today. NSA introduced home fire detectors to the market. Next they created home water purification systems. And in 1993, Juice Plus+ nutritional products were born. In 2011, Juice Plus+ partnered with Tim Blanks, 12 year greenhouse manager at Disney's Epcot Center to bring the Tower Garden aeroponic growing system to its customers. Today, Juice Plus+ products are sold in over 20 countries worldwide.
