Melanie is also a Juice+ Whole Food Nutrition Distributor. In early 2011, Melanie learned of Juice Plus+ Whole Food Nutrition and quickly realized it was a nutritional supplement unmatched to any other because of its depth of clinical research proving to enhance health. She and her family started taking Juice Plus+ and experienced positive results within a very short timeframe.

Juice Plus+ is whole food based nutrition from 25 fruits, berries, vegetables, and gluten free grains. Each ingredient is specially selected to provide a broad range of nutritional benefits. All fruits, berries, vegetables, and grains are vine ripened, juiced, dried at a low temperature (to maintain nutrients), and placed in either a capsule or a soft chew. Juice Plus+ is a great way to bridge the gap between the recommended variety of 7-13 fruits and vegetables per day and what we and/or our children actually eat. It is a rainbow of produce that has been clinically tested, proven, and published in peer review journals with many more research studies underway.

Juice Plus+ started the Children’s Health Study program in 1999, offering children between the ages of 4-18 (and college students of any age) Juice Plus+ for free up to four years when s/he is sponsored by an adult placing an order of the standard product, Orchard & Garden Blend. The interim results are showing very positive results within the children. Please see the link for details.

Juice Plus+ will be concluding their Pregnancy Study in 2013; interim results are very positive showing no preterm delivery prior to 32 weeks, lower C section rates, no preeclampsia diagnosed, higher birth weights, no NICU admissions, and no newborns with respiratory distress. The study compared expectant moms taking Juice Plus with those who were not.
