Della and I are Juice Plus+ lifers. Why? Two main reasons. We know it’s improved our health AND it’s backed up by research.
What do I mean by research. A fair number of companies now claim they have research. No they don’t, not like this. Juice Plus+ is the number one researched product of its kind in the world. Read More
Research conducted by Juice Plus+ is:
- placebo controlled
- tested on the product itself
- human clinical trials
- published in peer-reviewed journals
Juice Plus+ has a very high impact factor. Meaning the research is stronger and more valuable. Research conducted has been done by very credible hospitals and universities around the world, not by internal company labs.
What has the research found?
- The nutrients in Juice Plus+ are bio-available. Meaning your body recognizes the nutrients and uses them. This is not the case with many supplements and vitamins which are excreted from your body. In order to be bio-available, the nutrient must reach your bloodstream. 19 studies have found the nutrients in Juice Plus+ increase the antioxidants in your blood.
- Adults have seen improvements in gum bleeding, a reduction in plaque build up and improved pocket depth.
- Heart Health. This is a study that really interested me since I have had heart issues. “Juice Plus+ produces positive effects on several measures of vascular health.”
- Immune system. Studies have shown the severity of upper respiratory challenges, reduced missed work days, and increases in the number and activity of immune cells in the body.
- Since there is a history of cancer in my family this is another study near and dear to me. The antioxidants in Juice Plus+ have been shown to reduce DNA damage. Research also shows the level of inflammation was changed beneficially after Juice Plus+ intervention.
- Reduces oxidative stress by increasing anti-oxidant levels in the body. Rice University has an explanation of Oxidative stress at http://www.rice.edu/~jenky/sports/antiox.html
- Healthy skin. Juice Plus+ increases micro-circulation and boosts skin hydration, thickness and density.
- Systemic Inflammation. I believe inflammation is the source of most illness. Juice Plus+ has been shown to decrease levels of several key bio-markers of inflammation.
- Quality of Life. A study of ovarian cancer survivors Juice Plus+ improved quality of life, phyto-nutrient markers and cell health.
- Obesity. A study conducted on boys 6-10 years saw increased beta-carotene levels, improved insulin resistance and reduced abdominal fat.
- Lung Health. Improves lung function and diffusion capacity
