Juice Plus+ 101: Notes from the journey
Can you remember what (or who) encouraged you to begin your Juice Plus+ journey? It's a funny thing, but even the healthiest habits can fade into the background once they become part of our routine.
We've gathered some Juice Plus+ fun facts and useful info that might also be good reminders!
Juice Plus+ has been helping people feel better since 1993. Recognizing that there was an important gap between what we should eat and what we actually do eat, we created Juice Plus+ as a convenient way for you to get plant-based nutrition and help bridge that gap.
We're also committed to innovative, out-of-the-box thinking, quality ingredients, and clinical research to investigate and improve the benefits of Juice Plus+.
Innovation doesn't stop when we introduce a product. We use research, technological advances, and your feedback to keep improving. Here are just a few examples of how that works.
- 100% plant-based capsules. Our 2-piece capsules are now made from pullulan, a tapioca starch. Tapioca itself is extracted from the roots of cassava tubers. When we say we value our roots, we mean it!
- Protecting ingredients. Special processes help lock in those whole food-based benefits.
- Instead of heat, we use a proprietary cold-fusion technology to fill and seal our Omega Blend capsules. (We think that's pretty cool.) Plus, a bubble of nitrogen gas in each capsule protects the oils against oxidation. Let Liza Pepple, our Director of Product Innovation, tell you more about Omega Blend »
- We also use a proprietary process in our Complete by Juice Plus+ nutrition bars that helps retain more of the nutrients in our Ancient Grain Blend and sprouts than we'd get from other processes.
- Quality ingredients. We want all our products to feature the best ingredients, sourced in the most sustainable ways possible — period. And when there's room to level up, we do it.
- We replaced papaya with mango in our Fruit Blend capsules and chewable. High-quality mango is more readily available, so we don't need to worry about shortages.
- In our Fruit Blend and Vegetable Blend capsules and chewables, we now use lemon peel as a natural, whole food source of folate.
- We use rice bran in our Vegetable Blend capsules and chewable to reassure you that our products are gluten-free.
So how well does all this hold up under scientific review? In 20+ years of study — with more in progress — researchers have demonstrated a ton of ways that Juice Plus+ supports overall well-being, including:
- Heart and lung health
- Dental health
- Healthy skin
- Healthy inflammatory response
- Bioavailability (how receptive your body is to absorbing nutrients)
