Juice Plus+ Review – Does This Whole Nutrition Supplement Work? Are price and negative customer reviews deal breakers?PUBLISHED: 08/10/2015 | BY: TORY GRAY, SENIOR REVIEWER
We found a lot of interest in Juice Plus fruit and vegetable supplements, so we decided to dive into the ingredients, price and customer service. After reading through hundreds of dieter reviews, many in forums, we combined the information and offered you a condensed version.
What You Need to Know
To begin with, Juice Plus is a whole nutrition supplement that combines 20 fruits and vegetables into a small capsule. The products contain broccoli, garlic, beet, apple, peach and pineapple – to name a few. You take two daily with a meal. Both the bottle and pills are little enough to take on the go.
The Juice Plus company was founded in 1970, giving the manufacturer a long track record in the business. You can purchase products on the official website or through a distributor. We like that Juice Plus has been around for more than 40 years and the BBB rating is good. There are some positive reviews, but read on…
Price – “There’s a Catch!”
The price for a one-month supply of Juice Plus is not that bad, but you can only purchase the product in a four-month pack. That means spending more than $170 just to try the supplement. “Dieters need a chance to give Juice Plus a try,” according to our Research Editor. “The company wants the buyer to invest four months – making this one of the highest priced fruit and vegetable replacements on the market.”
“If you are interested in wasting $500 annually on a placebo effect, go for it,” a buyer explains.
“You’re better off not using them at all considering they cost quite a bit for little or no benefit,” one dieter says.
We came across another review that claimed, “If you believe that you would benefit from supplements, then buy some at a reasonable price and without having to buy almost $200 (only 3 month) to get started.”
Head on down to the bottom for one of the best supplements we’ve found in 2015.
Negative Customer Reviews
The same negative experiences popped up time and again through reviews and forum posts. Customers do not see the results they expected from Juice Plus. “They claim to give you more energy and help with acne issues. Well it did neither,” according to one buyer. “This product is terrible. Sticking to a strict healthy diet along with Juice Plus shakes, I PUT ON weight,” another user explains.
A customer says, “I saw absolutely ZERO difference in my health or energy with Juice Plus.”
We’ve found, in our research that negative aspects, like high price or poor customer support, can derail long-term success. If Juice Plus does not work, as reported by buyers, that could be a complication.
There is no scientific connection between a fruit and vegetable supplement and weight-loss. Juice Plus doesn’t even attempt to support claims. Clinical research is listed for some of the ingredients, but the studies pertain to overall health. Science is at the heart of effectiveness. At DietSpotlight we look for published data – if that does not exist there could be a.
The Bottom Line
We were quite interested in reviewing Juice Plus. The company’s longevity is impressive and the customer service department is supportive in answering questions about the product and ordering. Even with these positives, we cannot suggest Juice Plus. The pricing is an issue as the buyer needs to invest in four months initially and the dieter response to the supplement is not exactly supportive.
If you want to lose more weight, we suggest you try a supplement that gives you what you’re looking for at a good price and ingredients with clinical support. Good customer service is also a positive.
We’ve found Leptigen is one of the best products of 2015. There are four ingredients in the proprietary blend and published studies to support supplement claims. Clinical research reports it can help improve fat loss and spark metabolism. There’s no talk of negative side effects and dieter comments, from all over the web, give positive results.
It helps that the makers of Leptigen are confident in the formula. They are offering a special trial offer – a nice extra.

What You Should Know
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.
List Of Ingredients
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.
- Available online which is convenient.
- 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.
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 publicly 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.
