Q. I have started taking juice plus to add more fruits and veggies to my diet. I feel great about this decision, and have read a lot of information about it. Love that kids can get it for free through the child health study program too. Came across your site while researching; can you share your thoughts?
A. Juice Plus is not recommended as an effective supplement to the diet. For optimal nutrition, your best bet is to make half your plate fruits and vegetables at every meal. One nutrient we get from eating fruits and vegetables is fiber. Fiber plays many important roles in our body that cannot be duplicated in a capsule. One role is weight management. The fiber from eating fruits and vegetables satiates hunger faster which often reduces total caloric intake for that meal. Why Fruits & Veggies are Important
