Juice Plus - Juice Plus+What Juice Plus+® clinical research shows
Clinical studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals have demonstrated that:
• Juice Plus+ delivers key phytonutrients that are absorbed by the body.

Investigators at Tokyo Women's Medical University and the Medical University of Vienna studied the bioavailability (absorption by the body) of select nutrients found in Juice Plus+ and concluded that Juice Plus+ effectively increases antioxidant nutrients and folate. Other published studies have also shown various phytonutrients in Juice Plus+ are bioavailable. These studies were conducted by independent researchers at the University of Sydney in Australia, King’s College in London, Brigham Young University, the University of Arizona, and the University of Texas Health Science Center.
• Juice Plus+ reduces oxidative stress.

Several of these bioavailability studies also reported improved antioxidant capacity and reduced lipid peroxides, a key indicator of oxidative stress. In addition, researchers at the Medical University of Graz, Austria and the University of North Carolina, Greensboro found that Juice Plus+ Orchard, Garden and Vineyard Blends together were effective in reducing a marker for oxidative stress associated with aerobic exercise.

• Juice Plus+ helps support a healthy immune system.

A healthy immune system protects the body, and good nutrition is important for a healthy immune system. Published clinical research indicated that Juice Plus+ supports several measures of immune function - in law school students at the University of Florida and in elderly people in a study conducted at the University of Arizona.
• Juice Plus+ helps protect DNA.

A diet rich in nutrition from fruits and vegetables is also important to protect DNA from oxidative damage, which can weaken the structural integrity of DNA. DNA becomes damaged and fragile when exposed to oxidative stress; antioxidants from fruits and vegetables can help protect DNA from this damage. Studies conducted have shown a reduction in DNA damage after taking Juice Plus+ in young adults at the University of Florida and in an elderly population at Brigham Young University.
• Juice Plus+ positively impacts several key indicators of cardiovascular wellness.

Homocysteine is an amino acid that can accumulate to unhealthy levels when nutritional status is compromised. Elevated homocysteine is a risk factor for developing blocked blood vessels that can lead to adverse effects such as heart attack and stroke. A clinical study at the University of Sydney in Australia reported a reduction in homocysteine levels - even though the levels of the Australian subjects were already within an acceptable range. Researchers in Foggia, Italy also found a reduction of homocysteine levels in subjects with elevated levels of homocysteine.

Researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine found that subjects who consumed Juice Plus+ were better able to maintain the elasticity of arteries, even after a high-fat meal.
Investigators at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine monitored several measures of vascular health in a low risk population who took Juice Plus+ for two years and noted various improvements with no adverse side effects.
