“Don't know it's value post-op but I have been taking juiceplus capsules for 15 yrs.I have only had the flu twice in all those years with no flu shots.10 years ago we put our son on chewable juice plus.He was always coming home with every cold or flu the children were passing around at school.Within a year he wasn't getting sick nearly as often maybe once or twice a year and getting over even a bad flu in 2-3 days. This is a fantastic supplement,it does take 4 to 5 months to build up in your system you have to give it time but it definitely improves your health.By the way the friend that talked me into trying juiceplus was taking multiple medications for hypertension and high cholesterol nothing was working for him.After taking juiceplus for 6 months his cholesterol and bloodpressure dropped significantly.It s the only thing that has helped him.I love this stuff! ”

“Phytonutrients from 17 fruits, vegetables and whole grains with the sugar and water removed. It is the only whole food product with published research studies showing it reduces inflammation, repairs DNA, reduces free radicals, improves periodontal and skin health, protects the heart against high fat meals,is bioavailable and absorbable which most multi-vitamins are not.”

“My sister's husband was on it to help boost his immune system pre-op. He stopped taking it because he said it didn't do much and it is expensive. My co-worker loves it and has tried to get me on it a few times, but that's just not my thing. There are two very conflicting sides to this product. People that love taking fruits and veggies on a pill and people who say it dont do nothing. I say, stick to the real thing and save yourself the monies. A'ight?”

“As I read comments on this product, I can't help but wonder if some of this "excellent" reviews have even been researched. I read that someone says Juice Plus gives you 17 "fresh" fruits and vegetables...well..I did not know that could be done...company states the components are dry. I tried the product myself. Sadly, I should have done research instead of trusting my friend who happens to sell the product. When I inquired about the number of servings of fruits and veggies JP provides, the company could not and did not give me a straight answer. They said they did not promote it like that so people would not rely on the product for their entire source of nutrition. More than that, I believe it is their fear of legal action, if they even attempted to do that. If they are unable to give you "servings" simply look at the back of the label...which by the way, you cannot find online. The product contains "0.1 g of dietary fiber", "2 g of sugars" and "0 PROTEIN". This is good for you? Well, how about this, only 60% of Vitamin A, and 220% of Vitamin C. Worth $44+ a month? I don't think so. It contains, 0 Iron, and only 40% of Vitamin E. It may be helpful for those of you who think this is actually as good as the real thing, to do a bit of research. You will be surprised that most of the company research is NOT done independently. Most important is the fact that the FDA has "inconclusive" research. If Juice Plus was such a great product, this would not be the case. It is better to just get vitamins at your local store.”

“I have several bariatric surgery patients taking Juice Plus+ and getting phenomenal results. Start taking the Juice Plus+ capsules 4 months BEFORE surgery to improve surgical outcomes and after surgery to maintain optimal health. The JP Complete powder meal replacement tastes great too and is the best product of its kind on the market with regards to density of nutrition. Try it in chocolate or vanilla.

“I started Juice Plus pre-op just over 1 month ago to boost my immune system, metabolism and promote healing after surgery. I love it and already have felt & see a noticable difference in my body, skin, hair & nails. My nails aren't brittle anymore, my hair is shiny, my skin looks better and I wake up feeling good. My bowels are regular and I haven't had a morning headache for 3 weeks now. I also caught a head cold a week ago and it only lasted 3 days instead of the normal 2 weeks I usually suffer. ”

“I use these supplements and the shake powder. I love them so much, I've become a distributor. As a post-op WLS'er, I don't know any other way to get the 5-9 servings of fresh, raw fruits and veg's we're all supposed to have, much less the 17 daily servings I'm getting with Juice Plus! My whole family is on it and the kids think their gummies are candy!”

“I bought some to take pre-op from a local Herbal Store. The stuff is pricey, but I have to say that I feel better since beginning the regimen. I know some folks that had the surgery and were plagued by nutritional issues for years afterward. So, I'm willing to pay a little extra for something that seems to be better than just a one a day vitamin. I'm going to try the chewable after surgery just because I don't really want to mess with opening the gelcaps and trying to get them to mix in water or broth.”
