Dr. Baucom recently presented her seminar “Gluten, The Silent Enemy” at the KU Edwards Conference Center and in Lawrence. In her talk, she brings up the importance of eating fresh fruits, vegetables and berries and how they are anti-inflammatory to the body, vital for healing the gut and improving circulation. She mentions Juice Plus+, which is 26 fruits vegetables and berries concentrated in a capsule or soft chewable. She briefly goes over the more than 20 independent clinical studies that have been done using this product. One of the gold standard studies she expounded on was conducted at the University of Maryland.
The subjects of this double blind study ate a high fat breakfast at a popular fast food restaurant and then had their brachial artery measured.
They divided into 3 groups: a placebo group, a group on Juice Plus+ fruit and vegetables and a group that was on Juice Plus+ AND Vineyard Blend which is 9 different berries.
After 28 days they returned to the fast food restaurant for a repeat of the same meal and then to the lab to have the constriction measured again.
These are the results:
The Placebo group demonstrated the same 50% restriction which lasted anywhere from 2-6 hours!
The second group (JP+) measured 16% restriction. That was a 66% improvement and very significant.
The third group (JP+and VB) had NO constriction at all. This is significant!
This study was deemed so important that it was published in The Journal of the American College of Cardiology, 2003 issue, one of the most esteemed publications in the medical field.

The facts are hard to ignore. This is one study of many over the last 20 plus years Juice Plus has been providing nutrition.
