I have since been searching for that answer and I was excited to discover Juice Plus! At first I did not see how encapsulated fruits and vegetables would give any greater benefit than actually eating more fruits and vegetables (something that I already promote). However, upon closer inspection I came to realize what a great dietary tool Juice Plus could be. No matter how "healthy" one eats, it is unlikely that you get a variety of 25 different fruits and vegetables every day. Kids especially can be resistant to eating fruits and vegetables, which contain nutrients that are incredibly important for proper growth and immune function.
What is Juice Plus?
Juice Plus is literally fruits and vegetables that have been picked at peak ripeness, washed, flash frozen to preserve nutrients, juiced, dehydrated and encapsulated. The capsule form also contains vital digestive enzymes and probiotics which make them highly absorbable by the body.
So what is the difference between Juice Plus and a regular multivitamin?
Actual fruits and vegetables contain hundreds of components beyond just vitamins and minerals that work synergistically with the body. Juice Plus products maintain the components of whole fruits and vegetables, in an easy to swallow capsule or chewable.
