Juice Plus – What’s In It?

In case you ever wondered, this is what is in Juice Plus capsules. They use whole foods, so they contain all of the good stuff that’s really in the foods instead of isolated vitamins that may cause more harm than good if not combined with the other nutrients found naturally in the food. You would be amazed at how many phytonutrients are in just one apple! The best way to eat healthy is to eat the actual fruits and vegetables, but Juice Plus sure helps when you can’t or don’t get enough of them in your diet.
