Whole Food Nutrition?

Let's start with this question...
What is Whole Food?
(Wikipedia) Whole foods are foods that are unprocessedand unrefined, or processed and refined as little as possible, before being consumed. Whole foods typically do not contain added salt, carbohydrates, or fat. Examples of whole foods include unpolished grains, beans, fruits, vegetables, and animal products, including meats and non-homogenized dairy products.
Now, what is Nutrition?
Oxford Dictionary defines Nutrition as this:
 nu·tri·tion
[n(y)o͞oˈtriSHən]

NOUN

  1. the process of providing or obtaining the food necessary for health and growth
 
 
Per Wikipedia, "A poor diet may have an injurious impact on health, causing deficiency diseases such as blindness, anemia, scurvy, preterm birth, stillbirth and cretinism;[4] health-threatening conditions like obesity[5][6] and metabolic syndrome;[7] and such common chronic systemic diseases as cardiovascular disease,[8] diabetes,[9][10] and osteoporosis.[11][12][13] A poor diet can cause the wasting of kwashiorkor in acute cases, and the stunting of marasmus in chronic cases of malnutrition"
 
 
Whole Foods + Nutrition = Whole Food Nutrition
Unprocessed & Unrefined Foods Necessary For Health & Growth
 
 

The Benefits of Whole Food Based Nutrition

Importance of a Healthy Diet

The best way to reduce your risk of disease is to eat healthy. The right fuel in your body makes it run better. Fruits and vegetables are two key food groups known to contribute to better health.
But how do we do consume enough?
A healthy, well balanced, all natural/organic diet in combination with Whole Food Nutrition from Juice Plus+ to bridge the gaps in your diet & health.
Why Juice Plus+ and not one of the other Supplement Companies out there? Juice Plus+ is not a supplement. Juice Plus+ is Whole Food Nutrition. Juice Plus+ puts more of the valuable nutrition from fruits and vegetables back into your diet to improve health and wellness - Giving you a better diet and a healthier lifestyle.
 
 
 

Why do I need JUICE PLUS+?

Everyone wants to eat right and maintain a healthier lifestyle—whether you're a busy mom hustling to feed on-the-go children, a business traveler trying to stay fit, or an active boomer keeping up with grandkids. Unfortunately, maintaining a balanced nutritional diet is often a challenge. In simplest terms, healthy eating is about getting back to basics − by following the latest USDA guidelines, like those from USDA’s My Plate. The current recommendation for a healthy diet is to fill half your plate at each meal with fruits and vegetables. But healthy eating takes time, planning, and can cost a lot of money. Most of us suffer from a daily fruit and vegetable consumption gap as a result. Rich in vitamins and antioxidants, Juice Plus+ products can help you fill that hole in your diet.
 


 

Farm Fresh Nutrition

Juice Plus+ starts with farm fresh nutrition. Each capsule and chewable is the product of high-quality plants and seeds, well-cultivated fields and orchards, and the best fruit and vegetable farmers. After our fruit and vegetable varieties are grown, harvested, cleaned, juiced, and dried, they are blended into nutritious Juice Plus+ products that are part of a healthy diet.

Family Farm Grown

Locally Grown Fruits and Vegetables for the Best Quality Nutrition

We start with farm fresh produce – the highest quality fruits and vegetables we can find. We work wherever possible with midsize family farms run by some of the best fruit and vegetable farmers in North America, which helps us provide the best quality nutrition. We inspect farming operations – from the process of handpicking to the natural control of weeds and insects – to make sure we deliver the best quality nutrition so you and your family can experience the healthful benefits of Juice Plus+.


Carefully Preserved

We Carefully Preserve them after Harvest For The Best Nutrition

Fruits and vegetables lose much of their nutritional content when they’re picked early and shipped long distances. We solve that problem by locating our juicing and drying facilities as close to our farmers as possible.  Where that’s not close enough, we utilize a process called Individual Quick Freezing (IQF) to ensure the freshness of each fruit and vegetable.
Once the produce has been harvested and cleaned, it goes through our proprietary Juice Plus+ juicing and drying process.
  • We start with whole food.
  • We juice the whole fruit or vegetable, including peels,
    leaves and seeds, whenever possible to harvest the
    greatest amount of nutrients.  
  • We don’t shortcut the drying process, like others do.


NSF Certified

Expert-Tested and Expert-Approved To Ensure The Best Nutrition

Careful testing and independent experts ensure the natural purity of our finished products. Juice Plus+ is produced at state-of-the-art facilities that meet or exceed highest food industry standards for blending, encapsulating, and packaging. Our standards are reviewed and our facilities inspected by NSF the public health and safety company. Not-for-profit NSF also inspects and certifies our products, as confirmed by the NSF seal on every Juice Plus+ bottle or pouch. As NSF-certified products, all Juice Plus+ products undergo independent testing that ensures they meet and exceed strict guidelines and deliver only the best quality nutrition.
 

Juice Plus+® Ingredients

Whole Food Based Nutrition in a Capsule

We enjoy the juicy burst of an orange, the sweet nectar of an apple, and the succulence of a red, ripened tomato. Remove the H20 from fruits and vegetables and what do you have left? Nutrients – including healthful antioxidants in the form of juice powders that can be put into a capsule. Juice Plus+ Orchard, Garden and Vineyard Blend capsules contain juice powders from 30 fruits, vegetables and grains that offer whole food based nutrition, which is the core concept behind Juice Plus+ Research that shows Juice Plus+ can lead to a healthier lifestyle. And, in addition to convenient capsules, Juice Plus+ also comes in a tasty, soft chewable form.
 

Nutrients from Fruits and Vegetables

Juice Plus+ capsules were introduced in 1993, when most scientists and health professionals were only beginning to understand the importance of whole food nutrition. Juice Plus+ is not a substitute for eating fruits and vegetables. Juice Plus+ is not a medicine, treatment, or multivitamin. Juice Plus+ can help support a healthy diet by offering a much wider variety of naturally occurring vitamins – along with other antioxidants and phytonutrients found in fruits and vegetables – than traditional vitamin supplements.
 
 

Powerful Antioxidants Right From The Source

 Whole food based nutrition delivers powerful antioxidants that provide your body protection, because it relies on fruits and vegetables. According to the National Cancer Institute, antioxidants are “substances that may protect cells from the damage caused by unstable molecules known as free radicals. Examples of antioxidants include beta-carotene, lycopene, vitamins C and E and other substances. Many of these antioxidant substances come from fruits and vegetables.”

Whole food based nutrition starts in orchards, gardens and vineyards. Juice Plus+ combines the latest dietary guidelines and clinical research findings to create convenient whole food based nutrition, while consistently emphasizing that people need to eat more fruits and vegetables to improve their chances of living long and healthy lives. Try Juice Plus+.

 In addition to fruit and vegetable nutrition, the Juice Plus+ Company offers whole food based nutritional products for an on-the-go balanced diet through our Juice Plus+ Complete line of products. Learn more about Juice Plus+ Complete shakes and nutrition bars.

Other Simple Changes You Can and Should Make?
Heathy Eating: Eat More Whole Foods
img-healthy-eating    
Don’t tackle a healthy diet all at once. Start by replacing empty calories with whole food options. Whole foods include fruits, vegetables, and whole grains – foods that are as close to their natural form as possible. It won’t be long before you realize just how good “good food” feels. Before you know it, your cravings will change from greasy burgers and fries to healthful nutrition.

Hydration: Drink More Water
img-hydration    
We don’t function at full capacity when we’re dehydrated. The Institute of Medicine recommends roughly 13 cups (3 liters) of water per day for adult men and 9 cups (2.2 liters) per day for women. There are many simple ways to make sure you and your family are drinking plenty of fluids each day. Remember, food provides about 20 percent of water intake as well and many fruits and vegetables are more than 90 percent water by weight. Make an effort to monitor your fluid intake and you’ll be functioning better in no time.

Physical Activity: Get More Exercise
img-physical-activity    
Most people look at exercise as a means to burn energy and lose weight. Instead, think of exercise as a great way to gain energy and stimulate your body and mind. With so many demands fighting for your attention every day, it may be a challenge to find time for an hour trip to the gym. Start with simple activities you can incorporate into your daily routine. One simple change can make a big difference in how you look and feel.    

Sleep & Stress: Sleep More, Stress Less
img-stress-mgmt    
When was the last time you felt you had great, quality sleep on a regular basis? Getting a good night’s sleep can greatly impact your outlook on life and, in turn, your health and wellness. Simple changes, such as getting a good night’s sleep or taking time for a relaxing hobby, are easy ways to help manage stress and improve your well-being in the long-term.
