We all know that fruits and vegetables are a very important part of a healthy diet and lifestyle. Scientific studies continually reveal the obvious: there are incredible health benefits in consuming a wide variety of fruits and vegetables daily in order to improve health and reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke and cancer. But most of us don't pay too much attention to these until a crisis strikes - after all we feel fine! What we fail to realize is that everyday our many cells are being attacked by free radicals that are causing disease and sickness. In fact, over 80% of illnesses are caused by poor lifestyle choices. We can do so much to improve our own health!
The current recommendation is to consume at least 7-13 servings of raw fruits and vegetables every day in order to combat these attacks accruing at this cellular level. But for the majority of us, this is almost impossible to do on a daily basis! Even if we consume a lot of fruits and vegetables, we certainly don't consume the variety our bodies need. It is hard to consume kale, beets and pineapple on a daily basis...
That is why I am so thankful for a product called Juice Plus+. It is not a replacement for good nutrition, neither is it a vitamin supplement- it is whole food based nutrition from a variety of nutritious fruits and vegetables. This means it not only contains more naturally occurring vitamins, but also phytonutrients and antioxidants, even some fiber. With 10 vegetables and grains and 7 fruits, it is the next best thing to fruits and vegetables. It bridges the gap between what we should eat and what we do eat.
What impresses me most is that it is the most thoroughly researched brand name nutrition product on the market. Leading universities and hospitals all over the world have conducted clinical studies that show that Juice Plus:
- Delivers key antioxidants and other phytonutrients that are absorbed by the body
- Reduces oxidative stress caused by free radicals (oxidants).
- Reduces key biomarkers of systemic inflammation.
- Supports a healthy immune system and helps protect DNA.
- Supports cardiovascular wellness.
- Supports healthy skin and gums.
Juice Plus is also involved in a Children's Health Study, which is a large scale, multi year survey designed to formally document the effect Juice Plus has on the health and well-being of families who take it. This study has found that children taking Juice Plus for just a few months are eating more fruits and vegetables and less junk foods, drinking more water, making fewer doctors visits, missing less school and feeling better overall. And for each adult taking Juice Plus, your child (ages 4-18 or college student) can take it absolutely free for up to 4 years!
Our family began taking Juice Plus+ a few months ago, and we have been really pleased with the results. Abe and I both have increased energy (which is saying a lot for a hard-working carpenter and a busy homeschooling mama expecting another baby!). If you are interested in investing in your health or simply want more information, please visit my website or email me. I would also be happy to send you a DVD free of charge...
