Putting the right foods into our bodies is a daily struggle. Fast food drive-thrus and all-you-can-eat buffets lurk on every corner. Fat, salt, and sugar have been added to almost every package on the shelf at the grocery store. Grabbing a bag of chips or a can of soda at the convenience store is certainly a lot easier than peeling an orange or tossing a salad.
You’ve heard it all your life: “Eat more fruits and vegetables.” Now, medical science is telling you, too. But knowing is easy. It’s doing it that’s hard. People often turn to vitamins and other nutritional supplements to improve their diets. Unfortunately, vitamins alone can’t begin to replicate the thousands of different nutrients found in fresh fruits and vegetables.
You see, Americans don’t suffer from a vitamin deficiency; we suffer from a whole food deficiency. And this deficiency affects the young and old alike. Click here to learn more about the Juice Plus+ Children’s Health Study.
