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.

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.
She asked what was going on I had been out working in the yard more. The only difference in my life was the JP. I have to admit I am no longer on the product but not because of any reason other than the cost. I am retired and can no longer afford it. I did start on the Complete recently. I am Type 2 diabetic and trying to do better with my diet. After 4 months and 20 lb weight loss I am sick of eggs..
At my last visit he recommended a protein shake. I put 3 frozen strawberries and 3 frozen slices of banana with filtered water and use a Nutri Blast blender. This is like having ice cream for breakfast. Of course you can vary the fruit you use—blueberries blackberries peaches mangos etc. I buy the frozen berries in various mixes. It may not be the best product on the market but if you get the best, it tastes horrible and you quit using it what was the point? At least I can drink this.
As for the health I have noticed no adverse effects. My sugar is down and that was the goal. It is available on Amazon if you cannot find a distributor. Do the math and figure out how much a serving will be. But beware of the scammers selling it for 50 bucks a pouch it should be no more than just a little over My wife and I along with 3 grandkids have been taking Juice plus for 2 years now, My wife takes the capsules and our grandkids and I take the gummies.
We love the gummies. No one has had a cold in 2 years except for maybe feeling like we were coming down with one, when that happens we double up. The 2 older grandkids have not missed a day from school since starting. We all feel great, lots of energy, but we eat fairly well to begin with… As for cavities, our grandkids take the gummies before bed followed by brushing their teeth.
Common sense, any gummies will cause cavities. So make sure they brush their teeth after consuming. They would after eating candies, would they not. You can open the capsules and mix them into anything that is not heated.
I usually add mine to my morning smoothie. I have not tried adding them to plain water though. With great skepticism I started taking the juice plus capsules. I have had type 2 diabetes for more than ten years, and was suffering several deteriorating conditions, including numbness of the feet and serious problems with my vision, such as severe sensitivity to light.
Within a few short weeks I have seen a remarkable improvement in many areas — the sensitivity to light is mostly gone, the numbness in my feet has diminished, I wake up in the morning awake and alert instead of being dog tired even after several cups of coffee, more energy generally and less desire for sweet foods.
These capsules may or may not help everybody, but I can definitely say that they are worth trying, despite the high cost. Juice Plus Posted at Juice Plus , supplements.

It really should be used in addition to your regular meals not in place of it. So unless you are undergoing some special fasting or detoxification program, it is probably unwise to use juicing as a meal replacement. Ideally, it can be consumed with your meal or as a between meal snack. This is partly because you should only start by juicing vegetables that you enjoy eating non-juiced. The juice should taste pleasant -- not make you feel nauseous.
It is very important to listen to your body when juicing. Your stomach should feel good all morning long. If it is churning or growling or generally making its presence known, you probably juiced something you should not be eating.
Personally, I've noticed that I can't juice large amounts of cabbage , but if I spread it out, I do fine. The health benefits of juicing are immense for adults and children. It is wise to choose organic whenever possible. However, some vegetables are worse than others. Below are the vegetables that are the most pesticide-loaded ones according to the Environmental Working Group. So it would be wise to only purchase these vegetables if they are organically grown.
The worst ones are listed first. Please note that the order listed below is only intended for those that are new to juicing so you do have a pleasant experience with it. Please note that it would be FAR better to use lemon or limes than carrots, beets or apples, which have far more fructose than lemons or limes. If you are new to juicing, I recommend starting out with these vegetables, as they are the easiest to digest and tolerate:.
These three aren't as nutrient dense as the dark green leafy vegetables In the few days to weeks it takes you to adjust to the 3 vegetables listed above, you can start adding the more nutritionally valuable but less palatable vegetables into your juice.
When you've acclimatized yourself to juicing, you can start adding these vegetables:. An interesting side note: Cabbage juice is one of the most healing nutrients for ulcer repair as it is a huge source of vitamin U. When you're ready, move on to adding herbs to your juicing. Herbs also make wonderful combinations, and here are two that work exceptionally well:. You need to be cautious with cilantro, as many cannot tolerate it well.
So start off with a few sprigs and work your way up from there. You can use a few tablespoons if you have no side effects and enjoy the taste. If you are new to juicing, hold off on the cilantro. The greens listed below are bitter: When purchasing collard greens, find a store that sells the leaves still attached to the main stalk.
If they are cut off, the vegetable rapidly loses many of its valuable nutrients. If you would like to make your juice taste a bit more palatable, especially in the beginning, you can add these elements:. Juicing is a time-consuming process, so you'll probably be thinking to yourself, "I wonder if I can juice first thing in the morning, and then drink it later? However, if you're careful, you can store it for up to 24 hours with only moderate nutritional decline.
I have a Juiceman, and love the juice. I love the quiet of the slow speed, love how much more juice you get etc. My Juiceman is a very good little machine, it was a fair price and seems pretty solid. I saw on one you tube that I can make muffins and crackers…Not sure I want to open up that old addiction. Could you guys start a pulp page??? Hi, I was just reading through the recommendations on juicers, and honestly this is the best juicing website I have come across.
My boyfriend and I are looking into getting our first juicer, slowly making the transition into eating organics,ect. He seems pretty set on getting a Jack Lalanne juicer saw the infomercial will this work well as a starting out juicer? After reading the reviews I really wanted a masticating one, but it is a little out of the price range. Hello, I am also considering the Jay Kornich juicer. Has anyone had any experience with this product? Hello,not used to juicing but decided since it helps me consume more fruits than I can chew.
Where can I buy the best juice extractor that can juice cane sugar as well. Are these Juicers mentioned available here in Nigeria since i have not seen them around? The ones I saw were different. I have no idea about the what where and why of juicer machines in Nigeria, that is far outside my reach!! Is a masticator the way to go? Hello, new to the juicing world and have wanted to buy a juicer for a while now. The only question I have to ask Darren is this, how do you feel about the new Nutribullet?
I just need an honest opinion about that product. At the moment im leaning towards the breville but the guy on tv keeps telling me to buy his product haha. Appreciate your timely reply. I have never used the nutribullet but it looks pretty neat and very powerful. However, technically it is a blender and not a juice extractor, and I am not as familiar with blenders.
Hello Darren, It has been so great to find out you blog about juice maker. I am new to juice maker world. I want to buy one to make juice for my family instead of buying commercial juice with preservative. Does one and two gears make MUCH different in juice quality? If my bugget ranging from huron, omega to Green Power, which is the best buy and with which model? Sorry for the late response! It is such a great idea to make the change from store-bought juice to fresh juice.
To be honest with you, whether you buy the Omega, Hurom, or Green Power you are going to get awesome quality juice that provides excellent health benefits. However, if you do want to get little more juice and nutrition from your fruits and veggies, then the Green Power goes the extra mile because it is a triturating juicer, and the Hurom and Green Power are masticating juicers.
So yep, the twin gears do make a difference — not a massive difference, but definitely a difference. If so, which one. The nutribullet looks like a neat little device, but you cannot really make a comparison with the machines reviewed on this page. The infomercial hypes up the nutribullet to be some other amazing thing different to a blender, but that is just marketing, it is a blender, and not one of the best blenders at that.
For more info about blending vs juicing check out our page — http: Citrus fruits can be juiced in centrifugal, masticating and triturating juicers so it is not necessary to get a separate citrus juice extractor if you are getting one of these other units.
Mail will not be published required. Notify me of followup comments via e-mail. Even though there are many juice extractors on the market to choose from, it is good to know that there are only three basic types — 1 Centrifugal Juicers 2 Masticating Juicers single gear juicers 3 Triturating Juicers twin gear juicers Centrifugal Juice Extractors Centrifugal Juice extractors are made with powerful high-speed motors that make juicing quick and easy.
