Here is a list of our top FAQ’s
We have collected our TOP frequently asked questions, for all of our JP products, and put them all in one place for you!
Why is Juice Plus+ a good choice?
20 years of experience and independent clinical research programmes have now shown that Juice Plus+ can quite rightly be referred to as “the next best thing to fruit and vegetables”. The composition of Juice Plus+ with specially developed fruit and vegetable concentrates, combined with selected vitamins from natural sources, creates a highly recommendable product. The nutrients in Juice Plus+ support your health in a variety of ways, as the following overview shows.
Besides Juice Plus+ there is no other nutritional supplement based on fruit and vegetables which has undergone anywhere near such broad and in-depth scientific research. This gives you the opportunity to assess the product on a factual basis and you don’t need to rely on the subjective opinions of individual users.
How should I take Juice Plus+ capsules?
For adults, we recommend taking 2 Juice Plus+ capsules of fruit, vegetable and berry selection every day, preferably at mealtimes with a glass of water. It doesn’t matter if you take the capsules in one go or spread out in several portions. Refer to question 3 and 4 to find out possible alternatives to the Juice Plus+ capsules.
Can children also take Juice Plus+?
We recommend taking just 1 Juice Plus+ capsule of fruit, vegetable and berry blend per day from the age of 6 up to 13 years. The powder from the capsule can also be mixed into the food (see question 4). The recommended adult dose applies to children over 13 years of age.
Juice Plus+ soft chewables are a tasty alternative for children. They contain about half the valuable substances from fruit and vegetables, compared to the capsules. For children between 4 and 13, we recommend 2 Juice Plus+ soft chewables of any sort every day. The recommended adult dose applies to children over 13 years of age, which is: 4 Juice Plus+ soft chewables of any sort every day.
What do I do if I can’t swallow the capsules?
Besides the tasty alternative to the Juice Plus+ soft chewables, it’s also possible to consume the Juice Plus+ powder without the shell. To do this, pull the hard capsules apart and mix the powder directly into a food of your choice, such as yoghurt. Liquids are not quite as suitable as solid or semi-solid food for mixing in the powder.
What makes Juice Plus+ so different from other common vitamin products?
Juice Plus+ is not comparable to normal vitamin products in a variety of ways. The main substances of Juice Plus+ are the highly concentrated fruit, vegetable and berry powder which provide valuable phytonutrients as well as vitamins and minerals. The special value of Juice Plus+ lies in the synergy of all these substances from natural sources and not in the dosage of isolated “individual substances”.
What does Juice Plus+ consist of?
For Juice Plus+, 30 sorts of fully ripe fruit, vegetables and berries are gently processed using our own special methods. The result is a powder concentrate of juice and pulp with a maximum of all the valuable micronutrients from fruit, vegetables and berries combined with a few, perfectly balanced vitamins. All ingredients are from natural sources. The individual ingredients can be found on the packaging of Juice Plus+ nutritional supplements.
Why is the fruit, vegetable and berry powder supplemented with vitamins?
Only 3 of the known 13 vitamins are added to Juice Plus+ – vitamin E, C, folic acid as well as provitamin A (beta-carotene). Their physiological effects perfectly complement the properties of the phytonutrients from fruit, vegetables and berries in Juice Plus+® (refer to the table in question 1).
As a Juice Plus+ user, you’re well looked after with vitamins C, E, folic acid and provitamin A (beta-carotene), which means that taking these vitamins using additional food supplements is generally no longer necessary.
Where do the added vitamins come from?
All added vitamins (refer to question above) come from purely natural sources. For instance, provitamin A (beta-carotene) comes from a type of algae called Dunaliella salina, carrots and other sources, vitamin C comes from the acerola cherry as well as other sources, vitamin E comes from soya oil, and folic acid is obtained by biofermentation, similar to the way folic acid is formed in the human body.
What is the Juice Plus+ chewables sweetened with?
For the subtle sweetness in the Juice Plus+ soft chewables, a very special carbohydrate from tapioca and low amounts of organic whole cane sugar have been used. 1 Juice Plus+ chewable contains approx. 1 g of sugar.
How are Juice Plus+ Capsules produced?
The wide range of fruit, vegetables, and berries are cultivated in places with the best conditions for growth. This includes locations in North America and Europe. After harvesting, the processing takes place very promptly to ensure the highest possible content of valuable nutrients using the latest state-of-the-art technology. In addition to the juice and pulp of the fruit, vegetables, and berries, the cores and peel are also partially used. After the extremely gentle drying process, the concentrated Juice Plus+ powder is encapsulated and made into soft chewable tablets in Switzerland for the whole of Europe. Therefore, Juice Plus+ is subject to Swiss quality controls.
How is the superior quality of Juice Plus+ ensured?
Juice Plus+ is continuously checked throughout the entire production chain, beginning with the fruit and vegetables, then in the production of the powder and finally as a finished product. These include, for example, analyzing residues for harmful substances. The approval of raw materials takes place under strict adherence to all the applicable EU directives.
Is Juice Plus+ an organic product?
We use organically grown fruit, vegetables, and berries whenever possible for the production of Juice Plus+. All ingredients are continuously analyzed for the presence of pesticides and herbicides to ensure the high-quality standards of Juice Plus+ products. Despite this, Juice Plus+ is not an organic product according to the current guidelines.
Juice Plus+ when taken in combination with other medication
Juice Plus+ is a nutritional supplement that should basically be regarded as food. Therefore, generally, no side effects are expected when used with medication.
