Here’s the deal. There are a million different supplements out there to choose from. The
first step is realizing that you do indeed need a good vitamin regimen. It amazes me how many people
do not take vitamins. (I was one of those people a year ago). If you are taking a one-a-day
Centrum or other store bought generic vitamin, first of all let me commend you for taking anything at
all! However, you get what you pay for when it comes to supplements. Most of the cheaper vitamins
are not chelated, so they are not well-absorbed. In addition, most multivitamins do not contain proper
ratios of vitamins and minerals, nor do they contain everything one needs to feel whole. Also, most
vitamins are tough on the stomach.
The American Cancer Society and the American Heart Association recommend NINE servings of fruits and vegetables every day. The average American consumes ONE serving. It’s no wonder we have cancer and degenerative diseases in epidemic proportions! And even if you DO eat several portions of fruits and vegetables daily, the quality is usually poor. The produce is picked when it’s green, and loses half the nutrients on the way to the stores. Our soil is deficient, and pesticides are never ending.
Juice Plus contains the nutrients from 17 organic (no pesticides) fruits and vegetables, picked when they are vine-ripened, i.e., chock-full of nutrients. The vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other important phytochemicals are also in their natural state, and are absorbed very well. Juice Plus is considered a whole food and can be taken on an empty stomach. Independent studies have demonstrated how well the nutrients are absorbed. At 4-6 weeks ,most people taking Juice Plus were shown to have very high levels of several antioxidants, and undetectable levels of certain free radicals that cause disease.
Another tidbit of information: One study checked Magnesium levels in thousands of random individuals, and 75% were Magnesium deficient! Low magnesium can cause symptoms such as insomnia, anxiety, constipation, asthma, headaches, muscle cramps, high blood pressure, and depression, just to name a few. Magnesium is also a powerful antioxidant. And guess where Magnesium is found–you guessed it– fruits and vegetables. So do yourself a favor, improve your quality of life, and improve your health!
