Just about everyone I have trained and discussed how they eat tell me the same thing, “I eat heathy and get plenty of fruits and vegetables”. Usually, as we continue to talk, the truth comes out. Like many people in this country, they eat a banana, and maybe an apple, along with a lettuce leaf on their sandwich. This isn’t close to the 9-13 servings we need, especially if we are active and exercise on a regular basis.
I don’t think anyone is trying to be dishonest about it, they simply don’t think about their food and they only remember the good things. The reality is it is a challenge to get the servings we need for a number of reasons. One is that for many, they only like certain foods and will only eat a small variety. While it is good to have an apple a day, we really need more that that. Another reason is the nutritional value of food today is not what it use to be. This is because of how early food is harvested and the nutrients in the soil can be depleted, which in turn depletes the nutrition in the food. This means we may need to eat even more! It does get to be a challenge.
I have been sharing Juice Plus for 13 years. This has been around for 20 plus years and has 34 published studies, independent and peer reviewed. You won’t find anything like it on the market! Juice Plus is the whole food and the research shows that it is absorbed in our bodies. This is something that isolated vitamins don’t do as our bodies recognize the whole food, not just isolated parts of it. The breadth of research also shows it affects our health is so many ways! What this means is we can bridge that gap between what we should eat and what we actually eat! We definitely need to eat a healthy diet and get as many fruits and vegetables in our bodies as we can. Juice Plus is there to help us along the way!
Until next time…
