What is nutritionally good for kids, teenagers, adults, seniors and…dogs? The answer is Juice Plus+, a whole-food based nutrition now available through the Roth Wellness Center.
Nutritional supplements come in many forms: tablets, capsules, gummies, drops, powders and liquids and go by various names: vitamins, minerals, multivitamins and antioxidants. In my holistic chiropractic practice, I often recommend that my patients who are weak in the Chemical component of the Triad of Health add nutritional supplements to their diet.
There are three components that make up the Triad of Health. They are Structural, Chemical and Emotional. Combined, they present an overall state of a person’s health.
The Chemical make-up and balance of the body includes diet, and vitamin and mineral intake, as well as the function of organs and organ systems. The chemical aspect is disrupted by the ingestion of nicotine, alcohol, caffeine, sugar and sugar substitutes like aspartame, as well as toxins in the air we breathe. Toxicity from food has a cumulative effect. Refined foods, fast foods, and high-tech processed foods have a negative impact on the health of the person consuming them.
When the Chemical element is out of balance, it can sometimes show up as a physical ailment. A woman came to my office with the complaint that she had not been able to cross her legs by placing her right ankle on her left knee for years. I determined that she was lacking a specific nutritional element in her diet, and within a short time of taking the recommended supplement, she was able to cross her legs in that fashion normally once again!
Whole Food Nutrition
Juice Plus+ was introduced in 1993, when we were only beginning to understand the importance of whole food nutrition. Juice Plus+ is made from fresh, high- quality fruits and vegetables, free of pesticides or other contaminates. The fruits and vegetables are juiced, and the juices are then concentrated into powders using a drying process that carefully maintains temperatures low enough to preserve as much of the original nutrient quality as possible.
To date, Juice Plus+ has been the subject of more than 25 published independent, peer-reviewed clinical research studies examining its impact on a variety of biomarkers of good health, from oxidative stress to key indicators of cardiovascular wellness. More clinical studies are currently underway at research universities in the United States and abroad.
The clinical research has demonstrated many healthful benefits of taking Juice Plus+. The findings include:
- Juice Plus+ delivers key antioxidants and other phytonutrients that are absorbed by the body.
- Juice Plus+ reduces oxidative stress.
- Juice Plus+ reduces key biomarkers of systemic inflammation.
- Juice Plus+ supports a healthy immune system.
- Juice Plus+ helps protect DNA.
- Juice Plus+ supports cardiovascular wellness.
- Juice Plus+ supports healthy skin.
- Juice Plus+ supports healthy gums.
Juice Plus+ has an ongoing children’s study, allowing children age 4 through college to be on the product for free as along as an adult family member is using the product. The study is tracking them with surveys that are independent of the research that has already been done.
In the short time that I have been offering Juice Plus+ to my patients, I have seen health improvements such as gums that no longer bleed during brushing, more regular elimination in the morning, and fewer incidents of illness during stressful times.
Oh, and the dogs? Their coats and overall health improve from taking this whole- food based product!
JuicePlus+ is not a medicine, treatment or cure for any disease or condition. It is wholefood based nutrition that complements a healthy diet and provides the healthful benefits of adding nutrition from 17 fruits, vegetables and grains to your diet.
