Have any of you heard of this Juice Plus+ company? They make the encapsulated fruit, veggie, berry powders and vegetarian cool-sealed Omega capsules pictured above. I heard that there were studies to show that these capsules could support cardiovascular wellness, support a healthy inflammatory response, support quality of life, support triglyceride, LDL and cholesterol metabolism, support healthy lung function, support healthy skin and gums, maintain healthy DNA and reduce oxidative stress.
WOW. Those are BIG claims. So I dug a little deeper and want to share with you what I found.
I found gold standard- double blind randomized placebo controlled trials completed by prestigious institutions like MD Anderson, Yale, Vanderbilt and Georgetown with results that actually back their claims. Not only this but they have a third party come in and test their capsules to verify what they claim is in the capsules is actually there and nothing more! And they do NOT claim to treat, prevent or cure any disease. There are NO claims that you will lose weight or never have any health problems. They are up front and honest about Juice Plus + being an "easy button" you can use to support your body with thousands of phytonutrients to give your body what it needs.
I found the support of ob/gyn's, general surgeons, oncologists, family physicians, infectious disease specialists, emergency medicine physicians, cardiologists, dentists, chiropractors, olympic and pro athletes and existing customers both young and old with stories about how Juice Plus+ has impacted their lives.
I found the Juice Plus+ Foundation that supports charities like St. Jude's, Boys and Girls Clubs of America, Volunteers of America andChildren's Hunger Fund just to name a few.
I found a community full of like-minded people who are out there to inspire healthy living. The people in this company have a heart to serve others and teach people how to lead healthy lifestyles regardless of their interest in the Juice Plus+ products.
I found the next best thing to fruits and vegetables.
So, if you're like me and you find that you have a hard time eating 7-13 servings of fruits and vegetables every day, let's chat about this "easy button" you can press every day to flood your body with good nutrition that's been clinically studied, backed by physicians and third part certified. Email me at healthcoach@befitforpurpose or check out my Juice Plus+ page here (because of course with a company like that out there I had to join.)
I never imagined I'd be part of a multi-level marketing company. NEVER. Heck, I'm a Nurse Practitioner, Health Coach, wife, mom, daughter, friend, etc. I don't really need another "job." And because this product called Juice Plus is sold in an MLM company then it must be crap, right?! Anyways- my point is that I didn't just buy into Juice Plus+ without doing extensive research. I was a large skeptic.
Here's the scoop about Juice Plus+. Their "flagship" products are the fruit, vegetable and berry capsules (aka "trio"). If you take these capsules you get over 30 fruits and vegetables in your body every single day. And the benefits of taking the trio of capsules has been studied by reputable universities and the research has been published in peer reviewed medical journals.
Unlike other multivitamins, Juice Plus + is absorbed by your body. It decreases oxidative stress, inflammation and DNA damage. It improves heart health, immune system function, skin, quality of life and insulin resistance. It even improves lung health and heart disease risk in smokers who are STILL smoking! What?!
And these aren't empty promises or guarantees. Every body is different and Juice Plus + NEVER promises to heal diseases or produce miracles. They have simply proven time and time again through double blind randomized placebo controlled trials that Juice Plus + improves ANYONE's health.
Because I find it difficult to get the minimum recommended amount of fruits and vegetables in my diet >>>recommended amount is 7-13 servings of raw fruits and vegetables if you're healthy and don't exercise, aren't pregnancy, haven't recently flown in an airplane, don't smoke<<< AND because I find the evidence from the research so compelling I knew I had to start my entire family on Juice Plus and share with whoever I could about the benefits Juice Plus provides because I want everyone to be taking this!
So now I'm a Nurse Practitioner, Health Coach and sharer of Juice Plus+! If you want more information you can visit carolpetke.juiceplus.com. Or you can listen to my zoom presentation about all the research!!
