On days that we did, I noticed I was eating repeated things.. 2 apples, 2 spinach salads, etc. I wasn’t getting a variety of nutrients. When my good friend told me about Juice Plus and how the capsules were powders of 17 fruits and veggies that were organically grown and broken down with minimal heat, I was jealous. Then I was scared that it’d be a million dollars and not worth the cost, but I was wrong.
It comes out to $11/ week. When you consider buying that and the TIME it would take to juice it with a juicer (to retain all the enzymes and phytonutrients that the capsules keep intact) it was such a steal of a deal that we ordered some ASAP. It’s been my pre-natal ever since and my daughter Ella asks for her ‘bi-min’ (vitamin..her chewable) multiple times a day.
Kiddos get sick an average of 6-8 times a year. Getting all the nutrients a child needs from healthy foods won’t prevent sickness completely, but it’s proven to help their bodies be better equipped to fight off infections or viruses. Juice Plus does a Children’s Health Study and these are the current findings. After taking chewables:
70% kids were eating less fast food & soft drinks, & drinking more water66% were visiting the Dr less (because of stronger immune systems)60% were eating more fruits and veggies (parent’s report they actual crave more)60% were missing fewer days of school
My daughter isn’t old enough to be going to school or eating fast food, but I will say that when she (rarely) gets sick, she fights it quickly and it is always mild. Before we started Juice Plus, that is something I had heard from several mom friends, who’s toddlers were on the chewables: they saw a noticeable difference in how often they got sick and how much shorter the duration was when they did. Lastly, but just as important, we love that there isn’t add junk in them:
