I find it amazing that today, 22 million children in the EU are overweight and of these, 5.1 million are obese. Much of this is due to our modern lifestyles where fast foods as well as convenience foods are used more regularly than fresh ingredients and home cooked meals. At a time when many children spend more time in creche’s than they do at home as parents need to work, people do not want to spend hours cooking food and instead opt for quick and convenient. Who is suffering due to this? Both adults and children. We need to emphasise the need to eat more fresh and raw foods and have diets with little or no processed foods.
When I would think about fruit and vegetables, I always felt that I ate enough, until I came across a wholefood product called Juice Plus. It took me many months before I took the step to find out more about it. After meeting with a wellness co-ordinator I not only decided to sign up for Juice Plus but also took out a Personal Franchise and I have been spreading the word about Juice Plus ever since.
What is Juice Plus
It is a wholefood nutritional product which contains the juices from 26 different vine-ripened fruits, vegetables and berries and all of this is contained within a capsule. It contains no pesticides, chemicals, only thousands of nutrients and phyto-nutrients. Because the fruit and vegetables are picked when they are vine-ripened, they contain close to their 100% nutritional content. Can the same be said of the produce we buy in the supermarkets? The answer to this is no and this is due to the fact that fruit and vegetables are picked early and bombarded with chemicals to keep them looking nice. Due to this, they lose a huge amount of their nutrients. This does not mean that we don’t eat them, they do still provide us with nutrients, just not enough. Because of this and because many people do not eat the recommended 7 to 13 portions of fruit and vegetables every day, many preventable diseases are on the increase. Many of the incidence of conditions such as: alzheimer’s, cancers, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and arthritis could be avoided through diet alone. Juice Plus is the most researched nutritional product ever developed. It is backed by thousands of medical practitioners around the world and is now growing within the field of sports. The olympic teams for Austria, Germany and Switzerland are all taking Juice Plus as part of their training. It is helping sports men and women, reduce their recovery time and preventing illness that would otherwise hold back their training.
Why Juice Plus is so effective
Mother Nature has provided us with a large variety of different fruits and vegetables, all containing different nutrients and phyto-nutrients. We need to be filling our plates every day with a variety of these but this is not happening. Juice Plus helps us to increase the amount of fresh fruit and vegetables in our diet every day. By increasing the fruit and vegetables in our diets, we help to improve our immune system and this in turn, helps us to fight disease. Over 40% of breast cancer that occurs, could have been avoided through diet alone. The antioxidants in Juice Plus, help us to fight the free radicals that are produced in our bodies from UVA rays, smoking, drinking, smoked foods among others. The more antioxidants we give our bodies, the healthier we will be.
Juice Plus is not a quick fix, it is a lifetime commitment and a positive step towards leading a healthier life. I have made this commitment for myself and my family and we are all reaping the benefits from making this decision. We have all been much healthier this year than in previous winters and have all had much less trips to the doctors. If you were told that there was a product available to you that would help your health in the long term, wouldn’t you want to try it out.
