Hey, there. Our Covid-diminished summer’s here. Time to shake the cobwebs off your front door and get out.
Is It Legal?
Wonder no longer!
Can you name this drink?
Let this information be a reminder to you, just in case you’re tempted at a barbeque, a picnic, or at the beach this summer.
Guess what this drink is, a drink that was originally formulated as a mixer to pair with whiskey: carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), concentrated orange juice, citric acid, natural flavor, sodium benzoate, caffeine, sodium citrate, gum arabic, erythorbic acid, calcium disodium EDTA, yellow 5.
As we head into the heat of summer, we hope this information encourages you to drink more water! Scroll to the bottom of this newsletter for the name of this beverage.
There’s no tellin’, but Trigger might have lasted a lot longer with pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy.

The more we learn about what our bodies are doing 24/7, the more fascinating they are… read below for inspiration!
Not Suitable For Work
That title may be a bit dramatic because this function is a natural process for all of us. And getting rid of the distinctive scent is a $7,000,000,000 (that’s seven BILLION dollar) industry. We have emojis for it, we work to figure out what to do with it when we are camping, it is one of the daily discussion topics for moms and dads of young children, etc. What is it? Read the article for enlightenment and tips on best ways to get things moving.

It’s A Sign
The real sign is if you have no garden and there is little or no produce in your refrigerator crisper or on your kitchen counter. Help can be on the way!

Every season brings unique delights to savor and joys to discover.
For a myriad of reasons this year, including renewed hope, renewed strength, this spring season is especially welcome!
Donna and Ron’s Spring Tower
April Fool’s Day is annually also spring Tower Garden seedling planting day for us.
We plant on April 1 to harvest into the fall.
Here’s this year’s April 1 planting picture:
- Ron plants the seedlings in an arrangement for optimal growth
- Donna is adhesive label maker, so as the growing season progresses, we can tell the difference among 3 varieties of tomatoes, two varieties of cucumbers, and a host of other fruiting plants, lettuce and herbs.
Did you know growing aeroponically (without soil) gives you the same results as ground gardening without some of the challenges of wildlife and bugs?
But as with a traditional garden, you must grow smartly to achieve optimal results.
Click on the link below to request a beautifully illustrated free 141-page e-book offering specifics on growing (or not growing) 37 categories of plants aeroponically.
Even if you don’t currently grow aeroponically, it’s an interesting read.
We Need a Cure from Convenience
Have you been raiding your cupboards like a vending machine?
Big Food is feeding our snack addiction, says Michael Moss, a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist.
In the early days of COVID-19, manufacturers of cookies, crackers and chips saw sales jump nearly 30% as people loaded up on items they hadn’t had since childhood. And now, the companies aren’t about to let us go.

Hey, there. As we begin to break out from our year-long isolations and prepare to once again function beyond four walls, the internet and streaming, here’s to reconnecting with the rest of the world on health.
Be A [Healthy] Citizen of the World
In March many of us have tended to be a wee bit Irish, eating more “Irish-centric” foods (which may be different from our usual fare,). Let’s use that as a reason to travel around the world via other countries’ plant-based cuisine. There are so many options — this article will help you think about why it’s a good idea to try new foods. Perhaps your definition of what healthy eating is will be expanded.
Article excerpt: “Google the term “examples of healthy recipes” and you’ll notice there’s very little variety in what healthy eating looks like, and that the definition of “healthy” is pretty narrow.”
Speaking of the world: did you know that Juice Plus+ is now available in 23 countries? Including: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Middle East—Dubai, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Romania, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the UK.

Another Way to Be a (Healthy) Citizen of the World
The Bemer Pro-Set Go microcirculation device fits in a small backpack and travels anywhere: the beach, a mountain campsite, a youth hostel (sell sessions to fund your travel?), or think big, a 5-star international resort.
Juice Plus+ is available in 23 countries, Bemer in 42. We are healthily on the world stage with both.

Beme Me Up
FREE: Inspiration & Recipes
In this article, Dr. David Katz eloquently details why our diet is more vital than ever. The sobering statistics he cites include: heart disease alone kills 650,000 Americans every year. That’s 1800 of us, every day. Poor diet alone stands out among the behavioral, root causes of premature death as the now undisputed number one cause of death, killing 500,000 of us prematurely every year.
And the good news: recently a committee of the American Heart Association recognized the significance of diet as a veritable vital sign, calling for its assessment with every patient. Changing our focus from avoidance of chronic disease conditions to maintaining “chronic health” may be our solution.

Thanksgiving. Crunchy leaves. Crispy apples.
This month, take comfort in the familiar traditions, fragrant scents, and delicious tastes that we enjoy during the fall. Here’s to a November full of gratitude for you and your continued appreciation of living a healthy lifestyle!
Thanksgiving may be more physically intimate this year, but with Zoom, Facetime and Skype, we can still be together.
What’s Orange and Good for You?
Like many of us, you probably immediately thought of the delicious oranges, carrots, and squash we eat, but did you know that our Omega Blend capsules are also orange? Their color comes from sea buckthorn berries, a plant full of antioxidants and other beneficial compounds.
Learn more by watching this 3min. video with Manfred Lamprecht, Director of Clinical Research for Juice Plus+, as he discusses the importance of omega fatty acids and the role omegas play in our heart, brain, and eye health. He also reviews our newest research study – the 41st research study done on Juice Plus+.
Butternut Squash Soup
This month many of us love getting more veggies in our diet by making soups chock-full of autumn flavors. Enjoy this very orange and very tasty soup recipe!
Thankful for Microcirculation Therapy
5 Gratitude Prompts for November
Added to our gratitude list this year is a frequently overlooked group: farmers. Farmers that grow the fresh produce we buy in our markets, and especially the farmers that grow the veggies, fruit and berries that help keep us well.
Happy Thanksgiving to You!

The Fall season brings falling leaves, shorter days, cooler weather, pumpkins, and garlic.
Garlic? Yes, garlic – a.k.a. the stinking rose. We celebrate Halloween on October 31st and those scary vampires are repelled by garlic. Hmmm… how in the world was that connection made? Let’s talk garlic, shall we?
Garlic fact check (because scaring non-existent vampires is not a fact!): garlic contains allicin, a potent antibiotic and anti-fungal agent, and has been proven to kill mosquitos—i.e., real-world vampiric insects. It’s also used extensively in pickling produce and, much like salt, the compounds in garlic can ward off decay. It’s a natural antibiotic and if used properly, it can kill most infections. Before the invention of modern antibiotics, garlic reigned supreme as a way to cure infections.
Back to vampires: centuries ago, various European cultures believed garlic would ward off everything from the black plague to evil spirits to blood sucking mosquitoes and fleas. Since a vampire’s bite initially has the same effect on humans as a malaria-infected mosquito—exhaustion, fever and anemia—a natural connection between the two was made.
Finally, garlic has always been in the Juice Plus+ Garden Blend. By taking these JP+ Greenies you get all the benefits of garlic in your system with none of that fragrant garlic breath!
Tomatoes & Garlic
From our Tower to Table Cookbook. A delicious way to close out the summer growing season, using your tomatoes and garlic… yum!
History of PEMF
We’ve shared often about pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF) and the health benefits it can provide.
The Bemer delivery system for PEMF we represent was first available in Europe 21 years ago and through North American distribution just three years ago. So you might think PEMF is a brand new therapy.
Actually PEMF therapy has a history extending back to the 1700’s, including early on by Nicola Tesla up through the 21st century with current applications for our NASA space program.
Take a brief video journey through the evolution of PEMF technology for health and wellness.
Looking for an encore career?
Do you have dreams for the next phase of your life? You’ll get inspiration from this story of James Garrett, who fell in love with growing food after being a life-long city slicker. “I got one of these towers and we started growing food, and I couldn’t believe it. I fell in love with it and started doing research, formulated a dream, which eventually became a plan… ”

Good for Footballers
Good for our Communities
As a mission-minded organization, we not only want to inspire healthy living, but also contribute to life-changing, not-for-profit programs and initiatives that help support a well-balanced lifestyle.
This is why the Juice Plus+ Foundation is committed to charitable giving that impacts the lives of children and families across the globe. With this in mind, our philanthropic efforts rest on three pillars that focus on cultivating the mind, body and spirit: feeding minds, fueling bodies and fostering communities.
Good for our Bodies
Back to our bodies: if you’ve ever wondered what is in Juice Plus+, there’s a simple answer. What’s on the label is what’s in the bottle. Juice Plus+ takes pride in the NSF-Certification label on all our products.
NSF is an independent organization that has developed an independent testing standard and product certification program just for dietary supplements. NSF-certified supplements have been through a rigorous facility inspection process and laboratory testing to make sure they contain everything they should (i.e. the ingredients on the label) and nothing they shouldn’t (i.e. harmful levels of contaminants.) Each Juice Plus+ product has been certified for safety and quality by the NSF. Learn more about this important seal you’ll find on all our product labels.
