Results of independent clinical research studies published in peer-reviewed journals.

Clinical studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals have demonstrated that:

  • 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, in healthy adults at the University of South Carolina, 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, Italyalso 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-Herdeckefound 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.
