What You Should Know
NuPlus is manufactured by SunRider USA. The supplement claims to be a basic herbal formula that helps complete the nutritional intake of people who do not typically eat whole foods and a balanced diet. The supplement comes in a powdered form that must be mixed with water or juice before being taken. The official website for NuPlus does not list one ingredient that we could find, but third party retailers trying to promote and sell NuPlus do list ingredients.
List of Ingredients

NuPlus is marketed as a whole food that can be consumed by both young and old. Some affiliate websites trying to sell NuPlus even show pictures of children who use NuPlus as part of their diet to maintain overall health and energy. When a product like NuPlus is deemed appropriate for children, there will be no fat burners or appetite suppressants in the formula. This is a negative for the dieter who wants to use NuPlus to increase weight loss.
Coix Lacryma, also known as Job’s Tears, is a grain that is grown in areas where rice will not grow. Jobi Seed is also another name for Job’s Tears. Chinese Yam Root is used in Chinese medicine to treat cough due to the thick, slimy texture of the root when prepared. The root can also increase hunger and decrease fatigue. Euryale Ferox Seed can be eaten cooked or raw. It is commonly used to deter the aging process. Nelumbo Nucifera Seed is part of the lotus flower. The seeds can be eaten raw, but there is a chance that parasites can live in raw seeds. The remaining ingredients on the NuPlus list are all beans and seeds that are often eaten or used in Chinese medicine. Several are rich in Vitamin C and fiber.
NuPlus is sold in boxes of 10 packets or 60 packets. Ten packets sell for $17.21 and 60 packets sell for $97.29. Some websites offer free shipping and handling on large orders.
