Improving our Health

Monday, April 7th, 2014 by

Our country has serious health problems. One in three people live with some form of cardiovascular disease. Cancer is rampant. The obesity rate is one in three for both adult and children. By age 12, many of our children have developed the beginning stages of hardening of the arteries.

The good news is that it is estimated that 75% of all chronic disease is preventable. Intelligent changes made to our diet and lifestyles would improve both our life expectancy and the quality of life that we can enjoy.

An obvious weak link in most peoples’ lives is their diet. Very few people eat enough fresh, raw, whole foods. Most of our food is cooked which destroys the enzymes, which are important catalysts for the thousands of functions our cells must perform. We need the phytonutrients found in fresh, raw, whole food, to provide our cells with the antioxidants needed to fight oxidative stress and free radical damage, and keep our immune system strong..

It has been a goal of mine to educate my patients and students to the fact that it is easier and more efficient to prevent injury and disease than it is to heal the body after the fact. Juice Plus helps to fill in the nutritional gaps in our diet, providing our cells with the key antioxidants and phytonutrients to stay well. I personally take the Juice Plus Tri Blend and Complete, to give myself a form of proactive, nutritional health insurance, in the form of a healthier, more complete diet. Those of us who choose to push ourselves athletically, need to ensure that we are providing optimum nutrition to our cells. This is to not only fuel our cells, but also to reduce the oxidative stress caused by the free radicals. Free radicals are proven contributors to premature aging and chronic disease. While exercise is very good for us, it also increases oxidative stress in the body.

  • Juice Plus has over 32 published, peer reviewed, clinical studies carried out at Universities around the world.
  • These studies show that Juice Plus:
    – Delivers key antioxidants and other phytonutrients that are absorbed by the body.
    – Reduces oxidative stress
    – Reduces key biomarkers of systemic inflammation
    – Supports a healthy immune system and helps protect DNA
    – Supports cardiovascular wellness.
    – Supports healthy skin and gums.
  • The Juice Plus products are food, not vitamins. They carry a nutrition label and not a supplement label.
