Anybody ever hear about this?

My step sister is a personal trainer and has been using this stuff for over a year. She's got her husband and two kids taking them. She also got my Mom to start taking them about 6 months or so ago. Now my Mom even trys to get people to take this stuff. She sells it too.

My Step Dad has been in and out of the hospital for a while now and my Mom has been there right by his side. She has spoke to many doctors about this and some know about it, some dont, and some even take it on a daily basis.

So I've finally decided to do some research about it and check it out.

So anybody have any thoughts or opinions?

Discuss!!!

Juice Plus+® . . . The Concept

Vegetable gardens. Fruit orchards. They give us nature’s bounty and provide the foundation for healthy living and good nutrition.

The latest dietary guidelines and clinical research consistently emphasize that people need to eat more fruits and vegetables to improve their chances of living long and healthy lives. And scientists learn more every day about the nutritional power packed into every tomato, cranberry, and piece of broccoli. Antioxidants. Phytonutrients. Vitamins. Minerals. Fiber. And more.

Juice Plus+® provides the nutritional essence of 17 different fruits, vegetables, and grains in convenient and inexpensive capsule form. Juice Plus+ Orchard Blend® contains seven of the most nutritious fruits around: apples, oranges, pineapple, cranberries, peaches, acerola cherries, and papaya. Juice Plus+ Garden Blend® contains ten nutrient-dense vegetables and grains: carrots, parsley, beets, kale, broccoli, cabbage, spinach, tomatoes, and barley and oat fibers.

Taking Juice Plus+® capsules every day provides the nutritional foundation we so desperately need that is so lacking in our diets today.

Juice Plus+® . . . The Reason
"Eat more fruits and vegetables." Over the years, people have found countless ways to ignore that advice. "I don’t have time." "It’s too much trouble." But as scientists and nutritionists continue to learn more about the disease-fighting and preventive powers found in fruits and vegetables, it’s advice we ignore at our peril.


There is no substitute for eating a wide variety of fresh, raw fruits and vegetables, at least 7-13 servings every day. But if you’re like most people, you don’t eat enough fruits or vegetables or enough variety. And those fruits and vegetables that we do eat tend to be overprocessed, over-cooked, or too far removed from the field, and thus lack much of the nutrition provided by fresh, raw fruits and vegetables.

That’s why there’s Juice Plus+®. It’s a convenient, affordable, and natural whole food based nutritional product that harnesses the nutritional power of 17 vegetables, fruits, and grains.

Juice Plus+® is not a vitamin supplement, providing a limited number of handpicked nutrients. Juice Plus+® is a whole food based product providing the wide array of nutrients found in a variety of nutritious fruits, vegetables, and grains.

It’s the next best thing to fruits and vegetables … because we don’t get nearly enough of the real thing every day.

I hear it works good because of better absorbtion. Not 100% sure.

Forget the 6 week cycle. With these you can do a 6 year cycle. And no PCT required. ;)

I think $30/bottle(month). Not sure about replacing a multi. The absorbtion is supposed to be much much better than a multi though.

Does it eliminate the need to eat fruits and veges? Full servings per day in the pills?

I would think that I get enough fruits and veggies from my diet, plus whatever is already in my multi. $30 just seems a little pricey considering all the other supplements I take.

Theres a product sold in the grocery stores called Nuvim or Nutravim. It's in a milk carton and has lots of different fruits. Try a cup of that and a can of v8 every day and it may be just as beneficial. Plus your actually filling up your tummy with some calories, not just a pill.

it comes out to $60/month b/c you're supposed to 1 bottle of the fruit stuff and 1 bottle of the veggie stuff.

Not completely. But the daily doses have the equivalent of whatever the daily minimum is supposed to be like 9-12 servings or whatever. Nobody eats that much in real life. It would be way to expensive.

Just looked at the site.

"Each carton contains a 4 month supply. (4) bottles of Garden Blend & (4) bottles of Orchard Blend. $39.75/month

But I know from my mom and sister you can buy 1 bottle of each at a time.


Please dont take any of my posts as trying to get people to take this. I dont take this myself. I'm trying to get people's opinions on it and do research on it to see if it's worth taking myself.

Something about it just doesn't strike me as something I want to take maybe the vegtable part too much like a V8 to me.

I didnt know it was that old. She's only been taking and selling it for the past year maybe year and a half.

I'll ask her about the ORAC score.
