Juice Plus+ Products are fruit and vegetable supplement capsules. They are offered on the market as an alternative way for people to meet the recommended daily allowance guidelines for fruits and vegetables. The proper intake of natural fruits and natural vegetables is generally believed to improve the chances of living healthy lives. Scientists agree about the nutritional benefits of the tomato, cranberry, and piece of broccoli. These fruits and vegetables provide antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals, fiber, and more. However, there is no study to support the benefits of Juice Plus+ Products as a safe or effective supplier of the fruits and vegetables. The products claim to provide adequate amounts of the nutritional value of 17 different fruits, vegetables and grains in a single capsule form.

Product Features

Juice Plus+ is a supplement that has a sales history. However there has been controversy over the effectiveness of their supplements and over the large amounts of corn sugar in the products. Because the benefits of fruits and vegetables in their natural form takes a long time to realize, a supplement offering the same benefits would also take time to realize. There have been no scientific studies to indicate the blend of the Juice Plus+ would have the same benefits as the natural products. It is hard to determine if Juice Plus+ works or not since there are no scientific studies to indicate either way. There are testimonials from users who believe the supplement helps them to feel better and improve their general health overall. The Orchard Blend claims to provide seven fruits: apples, oranges, pineapple, cranberries, peaches, acerola cherries, and papaya. The Garden Blend claims to contain ten vegetables and grains which are: carrots, parsley, beets, kale, broccoli, cabbage, spinach, tomatoes, and barley and oat fibers.

Advantages

  • Available online which is convenient.

Disadvantages

  • Very expensive. More costly than comparable supplements.
  • Historical allegations of too much corn sugar being used in supplements.
  • No scientific evidence to back up the claims made by Juice Plus+, although it is known that more fruits and vegetables are good for the body.
  • Ingredient list is not available.

Conclusion

It is generally accepted that an increase in fruit and vegetable intake on a day to day basis will help improve overall health and wellness. There is no evidence Juice Plus+ products provide the same benefits of natural intakes of fruits and vegetables. There is also no evidence that the supplement is harmful. There have been past allegations that the product contained too much cane sugar but because Juice Plus+ does not offer their ingredient list publically it is unknown if they have changed their ingredients or not. Some people claim the amount of fruit and vegetable nutrients content is not high enough to provide benefits to people who use the product.

    When I was looking for added whole food nutrition I cam upon Juice Plus .. Actually what got me interested was the 50 + independent studies from some world accredited companies .. That had no stake in the Juice Plus Product! I felt confident in those studies to try the product! The price works out to 3.35 per day & kids get their free for 4 years… My other supplement company never did that … I have actually saved money by being on Juice Plus! I have been taking Juice plus for 22 months I have not had a cold, a flu, a migraine headache in that time… All I have to say is try it .. See for yourself what whole food fruits & veggies with do to help your body…

    Don’t know why this says that the ingredient list isn’t available. JuicePlus is very open about what is in their products. I second what Emily said. Since taking it, my migraines have stopped.

    I’ve been drinking the jp shakes for a week but I’ve been suffering really bad bloating. My husband has been drinking the shakes but he has been fine. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this?

    [Reply]

    Krystal

    The shakes contain carrageenan. Although the carrageenan that is approved for foods is not a carcinogen as some people claim, it has been known to cause bloating and gut sensitivities in some people. Carrageenan is also found in most alternative milks as well. I would try making it with water if you are using any those things.

    It saved my life! I had severe arthritis. After 3 months on juice plus I had a noticeable difference – not completely gone but way better. I Take only aspirin for pain now.I can do so much more than I used to. I am 51 years old and until Juice Plus I thought my life was pretty much over. I don’t care what it has in it(though I know it’s food), I will never stop taking it. I’ve got my grandkids on it now because they don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables – so this makes up the difference. They seem to get colds and generally sick less often.

    I am a stage 3 ovarian cancer survivor. Juice Plus was recommended to me by my oncologist who takes it as well as his children. I fell off the JP wagon a few times during chemo and felt terrible with slowed recovery from chemo side effects. Also, I discontinued for awhile trying to determine the origin of a skin rash. One month later my cancer returned. I started back taking JP and stopped chemo early because the cancer cells vanished. I will take Juice Plus until the day I die. That’s my testimony.

    I have been taking juice plus for 5 months now and I love it. I can feel a huge difference in my energy level. I am 62 years old and work every day so energy is essential for me to function in my job. I am a financial professional and have some stress but juice plus has definitely made a difference. I found that starting out slowly is the key. Use common sense and it will work for you!

    I took the fruit, vegetable, and berry capsules for a couple weeks. I got terrible bloating, so I discontinued fruit plus. That was a couple of weeks ago and I still have the bloating issue. I’m now going to make an appt with a gastroenterologist.

    try drinking water

    [Reply]

    Melinda Green

    Juice Plus is a dehydrated food product meaning all fluid has been depleted for packaging and consumption. Therefore you MUST drink water to restore the normal food consistency. Otherwise you will likely experience bloating and constipation.

    Bs. Juice plus is an amazing whole food nutrition supplement. I hate when people make up stories. I read so much about juice plus. I started taking it. My doctor had me on high blood pressure medicine. My blood pressure went back to normal after taking juice plus. Im so happy it did because I was seriously losing my eyesight.

    that is so not true. I have no idea who this doctor is, but Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center did test and research on it, and they are one of the top hospitals in the USA!! They said the benefits were so good, that they are giving them to cancer paitents with Brain Tumors. It’s amazing how people will tell untruths. There are 1000′s of people who can testify that the product does work.

    What if any is the return policy? I received the shake mix and an order of juice plus “gummies” about 10 days ago and it made me sick for almost 3 days. Can it be returned? thank you, Joyce

    [Reply]

    Mary B

    There is of course a time restraint on a return. Did you speak to anyone? That said, you shoudl have started slowly and worked up a bit until your system could get use to it. You do detox and that of course can be a little discerning.

    You may cancel at anytime and return anything unopen for full refund in Canada. Plus,to all of the lies in this article …there are over 30 peer-reviewed published scientific medical studies not only showing the bioavailability of JuicePlus but also it’s amazing short-term and long-term effects! It has been on the market for 20 yrs… 3 countries even have their entire Olympic teams on this to bridge the gap between what we should be getting from our food and what we simply aren’t. There is PLENTY of research done by universities and hospitals to substantiate any claims that have been made over the years by NSA (the company that makes JuicePlus) but to be frank.. JuicePlus is simply whole food nutrition delivering key antioxidants to the body to reinforce cell/DNA health so that we make healthier ‘copies’ of our cells daily making the body and all of it’s function gradually enhanced! Those that are looking for something miraculously change their lives in a matter of days or weeks!?! Sorry.. It will never happen. Juice Plus is simply an addition to a healthy lifestyle proven to be a healthy habit! I have had so many changes in my health, my hubbie’s health, and sooo many friends and family that I promise myself that I will take this product as long as it is available.. Period! Personally, I believe that $3 a day is hardly expensive.. For some that wouldn’t even cover their coffee trip before work or a beer afterward!! :) it’a all about prioritizing, and for me, I choose JuicePlus!! ;)

    There are 25 independent, peer reviewed, placebo controlled gold standard research studies published in professional medical journals….and anyone who understands the process of conducting real research know that the results are what they are, NSA the maker of juice plus has no control over the results, and the results are significant that over 8000 healthcare professionals recommend to their patients, including Dr. Sears and his son Dr. Jim Sears from the Doctors show to name only two….Juice Plus is the most researched nutritional product on the market in the world! You can read all this research on my website if you want too, it will take days to go through it, but it’s there….www.loriannjuiceplus.com

    I am a fairly new distributor for Juice Plus but I know for a fact it is the most researched product of it’s kind. there are over 20 published peer review studies from major universities available for anyone to read. There is no corn syrup on the ingredients. Juice Plus is just pure fruits and vegetables with no additives. Web MD is putting out false information about Juice Plus and should do a more thorough research and show the truth about Juice Plus.

    [Reply]

    Chris

    I’m a new distributor as well and a friend of mine whose opinion I value warned me not to get caught up in it-is dead set that it’s a scam. However, I’ve taken it for 4 months before becoming a distributor and I feel so much more energized. I can certainly respect my friend’s stance on it as well as concern for costs-at the same time, the cost of JP is far less than medications prescribed (even with insurance) and cost far less than juicing and spending $20 in produce each week. I think the problem is that, being a society with an instant gratification mentality, we tend to want quick fixes and fail to understand that the quest for excellent health does not come overnight, just as any health issues you may have sure didn’t come overnight. Since I’ve been taking it, people whom I hadn’t seen in a couple of months almost didn’t recognize me, so it does work.

    [Reply]

    Chris Also

    But isn’t Juice Plus yet another quick fix, another short cut? I’m amazed how JP people will say these things about other products that are so similar! Eat the whole fruits and veggies, and don’t take veggie pills!

    [Reply]

    Kathleen

    I started taking Juice Plus and found that it increased my desire to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables. I started being able to tolerate fresh fruits and vegetables that I really couldn’t eat before. It changed the way my body reacted to veggies and helped to improve my eating patterns.

    I have just started taking JP 2 weeks ago, I need to know the carb contents, any Ideas? I am diabetic

    [Reply]

    Sandi

    There is less than one gram of carb per two capsules of the Orchard and Garden blends, and less than half a gram of carb per two Vineyard capsules. If you are diabetic, these are the BEST – won’t spike your blood sugar, but gives you the nutrients of 15 fruits and veggies without the carb. In the experience of several people I know personally, these help level the blood sugar. My cousin was having morning BG levels of 250-275, and after just two weeks of taking Juice Plus (all three blends), her morning BG was 112. She didn’t change her diet at all during that time. She was, needless to say, pleased with that. Give it a try; if you don’t like it, they’ll refund your money (within a certain amt. of time, of course – 3 mos.? 6 mos.? Sorry – can’t remember).

    I have had Crohn’s disease since 2000. I started taking JP over four months ago and my last colonoscopy showed me to be in complete and total remission. I have more energy, maintain my weight better and feel better in general since I started JP. So it cost a little more, the benefits far outweight the cost.

    We have been taking JP as a family for over 9 years and won’t be a day without it! You cannot negate Gold Standard Scientific Research…almost 20 published studies done on JP to date. There is no other whole food supplement on the market that can claim what JP can claim as far as what it does for the body. The ingredients list IS on the bottles…its fruits and veggies:) I have never gone to my produce guy and asked him for the ingredients list on the apple I am about to purchase…it’s an apple. Also, Juice Plus does not contain corn syrup…not sure why they posted that? Juice Plus capsules as a product is NSF certified (not just the plant where JP is made..the product itself)…highest level of scrutiny it can get…not easy to get NSF certification. It’s food not a vitamin. End of story:)

    obviously you haven’t read the 20 different studies published in professional journals such as American Cardiology journal, Nutionist Journal, Sports Medicine Journal, Internal Medicine Journal. all these studies were completed by independent research facilities with nothing to do with Juice Plus. also the FDA has just certified Juice Plus as a food. FDA doesn’t do vitamins.

No longer taking anti-seizure meds – after 6 months of being on Juice Plus (both capsules and gummies). I have better results with the capsules. It definitely has reduced my OTC meds & Rxs expenses.

    [Reply]

    kim

    Yes, juiceplus will cause bloating. It is cleansing your body at a cellular level and detoxing your colon daily. You can also have headaches, bodyaches, runny noses and excessive sweating for up to 30-90 day, depending how toxic your body is. If it is excessive just take half required amount until you are comfortable…then take one of each daily and two of each next day until following month you can take full dose. I hope you feel as great as I do! Kim

    I have to say this information is wrong because if you go to the web site for nsa you can see all the science behind juiceplus. It has over 14 different studies done and more in the upcoming year being released.

    [Reply]

    Helen Stolz

    You should contact Dr Tom Brewer at 702-372-8413. He has a PhD in Chemistry. He did a scientific analysis of Juice Plus for SNA and the results were not good. SNA chose not to use his results because the product would have suffered. I used Juice Plus years ago and had great resulsts. About six months ago I started using it again and did not feel I was receiving any benefits. Interestingly I have since been told that they changed their formula and it is not the same combination and is not as good a product. I trust Dr Brewer totally and no longer use Juice Plus.

    I have been on Juiceplus for 13 years and got off nearly completely by accident. My routines were altered somewhat and am now back on. I totally disagree that the research is not valid…look at the places who have done it! As for me, I have seen a huge improvement once again by getting back on and staying on! I can not begin to tell you the number of others who also have seen amazing benefits! Then agian, we are all different. Blessings on your journey!
