Healthy Product? Or Clever Packaging?
‘Tis the season for pretty packages. But we don’t want those packages to deceive us. This article will educate you on the danger that may be lurking underneath all of that pretty food packaging. Food companies will use packaging to fool us into thinking an item is healthful. The article lists five ways products are packaged in a way that may deceive us if we’re not paying close attention.
Grow Gardens, Grow Men
A “feel good” story just in time for the holidays: the first commercial greenhouse Tower Garden farm run by foster care youth in America is up and working! In Huntington, W.V. a 1200 sq.ft. greenhouse will be staffed by the young men who live at Stepping Stones Boys Home. They’ll use the greenhouse to grow food for themselves and the tiny home village being built around it. Organizers say they hope as the vegetables grow, so will the young men’s confidence.

It’s been two years since the Bemer North American HQ opened in Carlsbad CA, ensuring pulsed electromagnetic (PEMF) therapy would be as available in the U.S. as it has been in Europe for over 20 years.
Bemer has been a leader in bioelectric therapy as an alternative or supplement to traditional medicine in a healthcare segment which is shining bright, as an article in Time Magazine this month suggests.
Introducing Tower Garden HOME
We’ve just made it easier than ever to grow greens in your home, office or school with Tower Garden HOME.
The Tower Garden HOME has a smaller footprint so you can grow a beautiful, bountiful garden in a variety of indoor locations. Included are LED lights; baby greens extensions; built-in wheels; water level monitor and much more.
The holidays will be here soon and a Tower Garden would be the perfect gift for someone special. Or perhaps you need to give yourself a spectacular gift this year?
Last month we featured four superstar athletes and this month we’d like to introduce you to one more: Jason Fowler, 6-time IRONMAN® champion. An accident left him paralyzed when he was 17yrs old. After that accident, he’s completed over 150 road races, 36 marathons, 37 triathlons, and 6 IRONMAN® championships. Jason talks about his fitness journey and how he prepares for his races on our recent JPTV episode. Watch and be inspired!
Nothing fishy about this
A question we frequently get when discussing our Omega blend is why we use algal oil rather than fish oil? Our Director of Product Innovation, Liza Pepple replies:
Many of us don’t realize that fish actually get their omega 3s from algae. By harvesting omegas from the original algae source instead of fish, Juice Plus+ has ensured the Omega Blend delivers a pure and sustainable source of omegas, including the all-important DHA and EPA omega fatty acids. We like to say that we’re just cutting out the middle fish and going to the original plant source. We are committed to whole-food nutrition and the Omegas contain 100% plant-based omega oils sourced from algae and fruit seed oils.

The Juice Plus+ community has a growing contingent of high achieving athletes who utilize our products to attain their peak fitness level. We’ll shine the spotlight on a few of those who have found that adding Juice Plus+ to their diet makes sense and helps them to realize their athletic goals.

Athletes turn to plant-based and vegan diets to gain edge in a growing sports world trend
Alex Morgan remembers athletes sporting milk mustaches in ads when she was a kid, reinforcing the idea that she needed protein from animal and dairy products to be strong.
“I never thought it was possible I could be playing at an elite level as a professional athlete with a plant-based diet,” the U.S. women’s soccer star told USA TODAY Sports. “Then I realized it wasn’t detrimental at all. What I learned growing up wasn’t all that true.”
FDA Embraces Microcirculation Therapy
Microcirculation Therapy, or Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) by its scientific name, was approved by the FDA for specific treatments as far back as the 1980’s. After a series of incremental approvals, the FDA today gives PEMF broad-based certification as a wellness device.

Heading into the Holiday Season can be a somewhat stressful time for most. An easy way to re-center is simply by breathing. You can be sitting anywhere with your feet flat on the floor and back up straight. Close your eyes and simply focus on your breath. Breathe in through your nose for a count of 5, then out through your mouth for a count of 5. Continue this for a few minutes. As you experience more relaxation, increase your counts to 10; breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth. In less than 5 minutes you’ll be re-centered and better relaxed.
For ongoing relaxation opportunities, please contact Gina Almgren at 619-988-2091 for the Orange County schedule of upcoming Guided Meditation evenings.

Summer and cycling. They go together. So do microcirculation and long-standing cycling records.
A team of eight riders using microcirculation therapy during their ride, set the race record for the Race Across America, run annually since 1982, Oceanside CA pier to Annapolis MD city dock….3,070 miles in 5 days, 3 hours and 43 minutes, an average speed of 24.91 miles per hour.
Record set last June, and team “retired”. This year’s participants, hours slower, didn’t come close.

How to get teens to give up junk food
Many times those “eat good food” lectures just don’t work with teens. Turn that story on its head and tell them they’re victims of corporate manipulation!
Giving kids a lesson in how the junk food industry engineers food to be addictive – and how it targets kids in ads – is more effective in improving eating habits than simple nutritional lessons.
Read this very interesting article on how to influence your teenager to make better food choices!
