Before I get started, I just want to mention that my review of Juice Plus is completely organic and unbiased.
I haven’t been compensated in any way for sharing my opinion.
But since I’m in the health and wellness industry, I like to see what’s out there.
I know there are a number of products and services available – and because of this, you (and I) appreciate reviews to help narrow down our choices.
Look, I’ve seen a lot of products out there. Some are great, some – eh.
I’ll never bash anything or anyone…so if you see a review being shared here, it’s because I think there are some cool aspects to the company that I feel are worth mentioning.
And if I, for any reason, become an affiliate or benefit from sharing my opinions, I’ll let you know upfront.
So now that I have this out of the way, let’s get my Juice Plus review underway.
My (Unbiased) Juice Plus Review
My friend Gina over at Money Savvy Living shares her expertise with us about how to save money.
She is also a Juice Plus consultant and enthusiast.
I’ve heard about Juice Plus over the years, but I’ve never tried any of the products, even though I’ve heard good things about it.
The company has been around since 1970 – and they’ve been making it easier for busy people to get some quality nutrition into their lives.
She allowed me to try a few samples of the products they have, so my review will be about those.
I sampled the:
- Variety Nutrition Bar
- Orchard and Garden Blend Chewables (Adult)
- Complete Variety Drink Mix
And here is my opinion of them.
Variety Nutrition Bar
Considering how many of us have busy schedules and need to replenish our energy to avoid low blood sugar, they can satisfy our hunger pangs and avoid overeating later on.
I tried the chocolate fig nutrition bar and I enjoyed it (it’s also available in Tart Cherry and Honey). I like a crunchy consistency, and this had it. I also love chocolate (who doesn’t?), so if you need to get your fix, this will work for that as well.
These bars are low-glycemic, vegetarian, non-dairy and gluten-free. Each bar contains 10 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber.
Orchard and Garden Blend Chewables (Adult)
While I feel this is the ideal way to go when it comes to your well-being, sometimes it’s easier said than done for most folks.
I also realize that not everyone enjoys (nor is able to) swallow pills – even in capsule form. In this case, the Juice Plus Orchard and Garden Blend Chewables might be a viable option.
They’re 100% vegetarian, so they use pectin rather than gelatin to give them that “gummy” texture. They’re sweetened with evaporated organic cane syrup and tapioca syrup and contain over 20 different fruits and vegetables.
They do NOT have high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors or colors.
Both varieties have a sweet and chewy texture and I feel it’s a pleasant way to get some nutrition in through supplementation.
Complete Variety Drink Mix
I love anything vanilla, so I decided to try the French Vanilla Complete Variety Drink Mix (it also comes in Dutch Chocolate). In a blender, I added water, the powder, frozen bananas and mixed fruit and gave it a try.
I didn’t notice any grit (which was nice) and it gave my smoothie a nice, yet subtle vanilla flavor.
It contains 8 grams of soluble and insoluble fiber and 13 grams of (vegan) protein.
I like the fact that this company avoids using genetically modified ingredients. I also appreciate anything vegan/vegetarian.
Juice Plus has been around for over four decades and people have been experiencing the benefits of using their products throughout this time.
One Last Thing
I am a HUGE supporter of people finding whatever means works best for them when it comes to creating a life consisting of well-being and independence.
As I’d mentioned earlier, I’m not being compensated for this review, I’m doing this because I support individuals living on their own terms.
Find what makes you come alive and go with it!
Your enthusiasm will attract people into your life who will support you.
Have you ever heard of Juice Plus or used any of their products?
