Results of Juice Plus+® Clinical Research
Results of Juice Plus+® Clinical Research
Clinical studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals have demonstrated that:
Juice Plus+® delivers key antioxidants and other phytonutrients that are absorbed by the body.
Investigators at the 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 South Carolina, Georgetown/UCLA, University of Sydney in Australia, King's College in London, Brigham Young University, the University of Arizona, the University of Florida 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. In a follow-up study at the University of North Carolina, Greensboro Juice Plus+ was also shown to reduce oxidative stress resulting from resistance exercise (such as strength training) compared to placebo.
Juice Plus+® reduces biomarkers of systemic inflammation.
Chronic systemic inflammation is invisible, and can contribute to an increased risk for developing chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer. Investigators at the University of South Carolina found Juice Plus+ significantly decreased levels of three key biomarkers of inflammation in both groups.
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, in elderly people in a study conducted at the University of Arizona, in athletic men at the Medical University of Graz, Austria, and in healthcare professionals with direct patient contact at Charité University Medical Centre, Berlin, Germany.
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+® supports cardiovascular wellness.
Homocysteine is an amino acid that is found in the blood. Maintaining healthy homocysteine levels is important for the heart and cardiovascular system. 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.
Juice Plus+® supports healthy skin.
Proper circulation is important for healthy skin, because it ensures the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to skin tissue, giving it a healthy glow. Researchers at the University of Witten-Herdecke found Juice Plus+ increases circulation in skin capillaries by 39%. Juice Plus+ also boosts skin hydration, skin thickness, and skin density.
Juice Plus+® supports healthy gums.
Periodontitis is a condition in which the gums recede from the teeth, creating pockets that become infected. Left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss. The University of Birmingham, United Kingdom did a study of adults with periodontitis and found that Juice Plus+ helped reduce the depth of gum pockets and decrease gum bleeding when used in addition to standard deep cleaning therapy.
*NSA is dedicated to advancing the body of peer-reviewed and published scientific research on Juice Plus+, and has been for well over a decade. Toward this end, the company reinvests a portion of its profits each year to awarding competitive grants for sponsored research projects at leading institutions around the world. Much of the work featured on this page was funded in this manner.
