Juice Plus. Sometimes it seems like people just sell what they sell, and they don’t pursue truth. Well, it seems that way all the time in the world of marketing that we live in. But when it comes to health, well… there is a more important attention to detail, as being right could save a life, and being wrong to take one.
To live longer, take less supplements – this was the title of one of our daily sprout articles, long before we sold juice plus, or had a serious distinction between good and bad supplements. This was a great time for us, because we had a lot to learn, and we were doing it everyday. The article had stemmed from a report we saw that basically said supplements were bad.
The report was focused on the toxic load of the average OTC supplement. With dangerous fillers, and ingredients that were there for no real apparent reason. When we got into the study a little deeper, we started seeing reports of arsenic, BPA and other toxins in the supplements. This was enough to solidify the claim that some companies have false missions in the health world. Well duh, of course they do.
So we were on a mission to get smarter, and go deeper into the supplement world. We learned a lot. I used to advise people take high doses of specific supplements. And some people got well, and many got nowhere. Why? Well, the deficiency was there. The individual needed the vitamin or mineral. But the deficiency was not as isolated as we thought. Meaning, there wasn’t just a need for vitamin X, but there was a need for the host enzymes and co-enzymes that are present in the whole food, that break down and utilize vitamin X.
In other words, we began to see the evidence of God’s perfect package. The egg that needs the yolk to be eaten to digest the protein in the white. The apple with all of its ingredients that help to assimilate the apple so that you can gain health. You see, the whole food, IS the perfect package.
Hence we jumped on board with the Juice Plus train, but not until we confirmed its truth. We wanted to know the truth. We wanted to be confident that the story would stick. So I read the research, and this is why I started my family on it, and why I have kept it going with all of us to the level that we do.
Oxidative stress – the damage done to the body from all sorts of stresses that has been implicated in causing cancer, heart disease and other disease processes. AKA – Free Radicals. The article is here that shows that Juice Plus has been able to reduce oxidative stress. I am a fan, this is a big reason why.
Basically – what was seen, was that the oxidative stress that is accepted universally as a cause of cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, heart disease and more; was significantly reduced by consuming juice plus. Furthermore, if we research into the world of antioxidants and oxidative stress, we would see that there is a common theme. We don’t know how much is enough, so…
You hedge your bets by eating as many antioxidant-rich foods as possible
So the power of whole food nutrition is this. Every bit of the package is present. And the ability to alter the course of a “one day” cancer patient, is significant. This is why we recommend that every one of you be on this product. 13 servings of fruit and vegetables would be your first priority, but if you fail at that… juice plus.
Just keeping you focused!
