Juice Plus+ is 17 raw fruits and vegetables with the water, sodium and sugar taken out and the remaining fruit and vegetable compound is placed into a capsule.

Studies have shown that whole food is the most effective way to prevent disease. New research has proven without a doubt that what is consumed in pregnancy has the ability to change the  genetic makeup of your unborn child. An extensive pregnancy research study showed that Juice Plus+ participants had no pre-eclampsia, no underweigh newborns, no hypertension and several other positive markers of pregnancy health.

Jharna and her husband are local distributors of the supplement JuicePlus+.
