My Juice Plus Story
I want to take some time to share my Juice Plus story. Yes, I am now a rep. But this is my unbiased review of the Juice Plus products in the form of my own personal story.
How I found Juice Plus
I had just been diagnosed with Celiac Disease and I was desperate to feel normal again. Having been sick for almost the entire year after the birth of my second son I was desperate. I saw a post about Shred10 on a friend’s timeline and immediately engaged. Once she convinced me that Juice Plus was indeed safe, and even beneficial, for Celiac Disease. I took the leap and I did my first shred and thought it was pretty good. I even was feeling a bit better! But I had committed to do a Whole30 to challenge soy in my diet. So I stopped Juice Plus in order to be 100% Whole30 compliant. Well, I immediately got sick again. I was solidly back on the struggle bus even though I was eating super clean. So I started back on my capsules, and I started feeling better within days. So I stuck with the capsules throughout the remainder of my Whole30. I have never stopped the capsules since. My initial results and improvements were so impressive simply because my gut was SO jacked up.
Why I stuck with Juice Plus
At the time, in 2016 I was working part-time and working hard to adjust to my new Gluten Free life. It wasn’t easy, but I wasn’t sick all the time. I have a history of chronic sinus issues, and I started to notice that clearing up. After a year of taking Juice Plus, my stomach was SO much better, my sinus issues had significantly improved, and I had some energy back. I stopped working in the Fall of 2016 in order to be home with the kids, and that’s when I decided to start them on it as well. After all, I knew it was safe for them so why not? I already had the chewables for my husband, so I started sharing them with the boys. My older son turned 4 in February 2017, so we started the family health study too, meaning we got MORE chewables for free.
This isn’t my children’s story, but I’d be silly not to share their success too. My older son had recurring ear infections and my younger son had pneumonia more than once as a baby. I started them on Juice Plus more to guarantee fruits and veggies in their diet, but I was pleasantly surprised to see both ear and lung issues completely clear up in both kids! Improvements in their allergies too! My husband has also been amazed at how he just doesn’t seem to get sick much anymore.
Add in the omegas, and we’re REALLY doing great!
The current chapter in my Juice Plus Story
My story isn’t over yet, but I have seen so many improvements in the past 3 years alone. My hair grows faster, my joints don’t ache anymore, my skin is clearer, I actually have fingernails, and we don’t get sick all the time! That alone is enough for me. But there are things that aren’t visible that have improved too. Lower blood pressure, higher energy, healthier food choices, and fitness goals.
Guys, I am planning on running my first half marathon next spring. That’s huge. 3 years ago I couldn’t walk up the stairs without taking a break. I was THAT sick and tired! I am 100% convinced I would not be where I am today fitness and health wise without the aid of Juice Plus. It’s that simple. For the first time in my adult life, I am EXCITED to see what I will be able to do next!
