Good for Footballers

Good for Footballers


Football’s on our minds these days, albeit a little less than usual with social distancing and empty or mostly empty stadiums, and the West Coast Pac 12 not committed to playing as of this weekend.
While retired NFL players have been waiting for football with many of us, they have been waiting in a different way in 2020 with access to free Bemer microcirculation devices for their health benefit, while they are in front of the tv on their couches or recliners, as a result of a partnership between Bemer and the NFL Alumni Association earlier this year.



Ed Beasley, CEO of the NFL Alumni Association (pictured above), offered his personal take on his new benefit: “My Bemer keeps me going. Without it the stiffness and old NFL injuries can make life difficult, but using the Bemer restores my mobility and keeps me on the golf course.”
You don’t need to be a footballer or golfer to see the benefits of microcirculation therapy. Better circulation through microcirculation therapy contributes to better health for all of us.


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.


We believe in education and encouraging nutritional wellness in our youth.
We believe nourishment, fitness and overall physical health make lives better.
We believe in making a lasting social impact through sustainability and community development.

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.


Good Advice!

These Are Not Normal Times

These truly are not normal times. We all feel it in semi-isolation.

We get plenty of news on what’s going on out there through the media, both traditional and social. But sometimes it’s a personal story that really drives home a particular dynamic.

Our good friend, Allan Gutierrez, long-time RN in our Mission Viejo community, volunteered to be a relief nurse in May and June at St. Joseph Hospital in Bethpage NY on Long Island. At the time, the virus was spreading out from the New York City into suburban communities, and Bethpage was a hot spot.

We gifted Allan with two months of Juice Plus+ nutritional products to help him with his immune system during his assignment before he flew to New York. Then we kept in touch with video calls.

Two observations from Allan added an exclamation point to what we had been hearing, but not experiencing.
First, when the illness progresses to the seriousness of needing hospital stays, the hospital experience is traumatic to both the caregivers and the patient. Allan commented regularly on how his work in Bethpage was gut-wrenching and without question the hardest job he had ever taken, including many years of emergency room assignments.
Second, of the many of his patients who did not survive their hospital stay, each one, to a person, without exception, regardless of age, had a least one underlying health condition.
It underscores the importance of building and maintaining a healthy lifestyle to forestall chronic health conditions and reduce your susceptibility to what might come your way in the future.





Did you know that mushrooms are an excellent source of vitamin D? And that worldwide mushroom consumption has increased markedly in the past four decades? Mushrooms have the potential to be the only non-animal, unfortified food source of vitamin D that can provide a substantial amount of vitamin D2 in a single serving.


Vitamin D has been studied by the National Institute of Health for its possible connections to several diseases and medical problems, including diabetes, hypertension, multiple sclerosis, bone disorders and some types of cancer. It also plays a role in the maintenance of healthy bones, teeth, and muscles.


JP+ Complete & ‘shrooms

WARNING – this may seriously impact how you make your morning coffee! Our protein powder, Juice Plus+ Complete, is a nutritious blend of plant-based ingredients like chickpea protein and quinoa that add extra fiber, protein, and prebiotics to smoothies, healthy snacks, baking recipes, and more. And you can use it in your morning coffee… are you excited yet?!?



Complete also contains juice powder from Agaricus bisporus, a.k.a. the Portabella mushroom. Mushrooms are the ONLY plant-based source of Vitamin D. One serving of Complete provides 40% of the U.S. Recommended Daily Intake (RDA) of Vitamin D. Now that’s exciting: something that is delish and good for you!




Is Foraging in Your Future?


If your answer is “yes”, take a moment and read this article: “Expert Tips on How to Forage for Mushrooms and Not Die.”

Sharon Palmer, RDN writes that “Nothing compares to the earthy fragrance and taste of mushrooms freshly sautéed in a bit of olive oil and garlic… they are classified in the kingdom of fungi and they are the complex fruiting body of the fungal organism. Just as a tree produces fruit to bear seeds to continue the species, so does a fungal organism produce mushrooms to carry spores to continue its own species. With thousands of mushroom species present in the world, most of these fungi remain mysterious, as only 10 percent of the species have been identified”. Read more…
