Juice Plus: The Importance of Antioxidants

Leave a comment

When it comes to nutrition and health, conflicting ideas and advice abound. It’s hard to drown out the noise and tune in to what your body needs, but there is one area in which no debate is found: The importance of antioxidants.vegandfruits

Antioxidants, found in fruits and vegetables, strengthen the body, boost the immune system, and help prevent disease. Everyday our bodies are subjected to free radicals, which strain and age the body. When the body has more free radicals than antioxidants, oxidative stress occurs, causing numerous health problems, including cancer, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, depression, thyroid issues, and diabetes, just to name a few.

Fruits and vegetables contain literally thousands of antioxidants, making them far and away the absolute best source of antioxidant health. The current recommendation is 7-13 servings of fruits and vegetables per day, but unfortunately the average adult doesn’t come near those numbers. Putting the healthiest foods into our bodies is a daily struggle, which is why I recommend Juice Plus+ to those in need of extra support.

Juice Plus+ provides whole food nutrition from 17 different fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Unlike vitamin supplements, Juice Plus+ contains phytonutrients, antioxidants, and fiber, making it a wonderful addition to a healthy, balanced diet. There is absolutely no substitute for eating fresh fruits and vegetables, but if you find yourself struggling to eat healthy, fresh food consistently, Juice Plus+ provides an array of antioxidants to help ‘fill the gap’ between what you should eat and what you do eat.
