One of the greatest gifts you can give your kids is the gift of health. Spend time teaching them while they are young about what fuels their body the best.
I fuel my kids with real food such as fruits, vegetables, nuts/seeds, whole grains and protein.
They also take Juice Plus+ chewable vitamins. My kids are so excited to get this gift of health everyday! They love them and are constantly reminding me to take them.
I got hooked on Juice Plus is because it is made of 18 different non-gmo fruits and vegetables (carrots, parsley, beet, garlic, broccoli, tomato, spinach, cabbage, kale, apple, peach, cranberry, orange, papaya, pineapple, date, cherry and prune) and 2 grains (rice bran and oat bran). Although my kids get a lot of healthy foods, they do not get this variety and each color of the rainbow daily and each color offers different nutrients to our bodies.
It doesn’t contain high fructose corn syrup or any artificial preservatives colors or flavors like many other childrens vitamins. They taste delicious and are gluten free.
There is tons of clinical data at top research facilities supporting Juice Plus+. The most impressive one to me is markers of systemic inflammation improve (inflammation is the cause of some many diseases/ailments). See the research!
It is made from real fruits and vegetables picked vine-ripened at their peak time, juiced, dried and blended to make these tasty vitamins.
The cost is reasonable at $25/month, less than $1 a day. The company also has a great program to give free product for your child when an adult orders the product. This includes parents and grandparents! Inquire if you are interested!
Some of the Impressive results parents reported about their children after taking Juice Plus:
- Less Doctors Visits
- Eating More Fruits & Vegetables
- Less Prescription and Over the Counter Medication
Set your kids up with a strong foundation everyday!
I am a believer in trying to get as much from food as possible, but also take the following supplements for “added insurance”.
Juice Plus Capsules: 2 orchard, 2 garden/day
I have been taking Juice Plus+ capsules for 15 years! I like the research data in clinical trials showing it reduces markers of systemic inflammation in the body. I also like that it is made from 18 different fruits and vegetables…you know what the ingredients are its not mega-doses of isolated vitamins that your body doesn’t know what to do with. I eat fruits and vegetables as much as possible but I like the variety that Juice Plus+ provides. We tend to buy the same types of produce or we buy what is in season. Juice Plus+ has a variety of fruit and vegetables from the rainbow, each offering different nutrients to our body.

My kids (& hubby) take the Juice Plus Fruit & Vegetable Chewables
They love them…the vegetable ones are even good! I like it because there is no artificial preservatives, colors or flavors (believe it or not, but this is very unusual for kids vitamins). The clinical data shows it reduces the number of visits to the pediatrician. I would much rather spend my money preventing illness than a co-pay to the doc’s office. Best part is there is a program to get FREE chewables for kids! Ask me how! http://inspirewellnessstl.com/contact/
Omega-3 Fatty Acid: 2 1000mg capsules per day
There are so many compelling reasons to take an omega-3 fatty acid supplement…helps with reducing inflammation in the body, heart health, joint pain, auto immune diseases & mental illnesses. We get so many omega-6s in our diets. The ratios of omega-6s to omega-3s is suppose to be 2:1 and it is typical for an american to have a ratio of 20:1. Taking an omega-3 supplement helps even out the ratio.
I like Ultimate Omega because of the high content of EPA/DHA per capsule. It can be found at Whole Foods or ordered online at http://www.allstarhealth.com.
Probiotics: 1 capsule per day
They help fill your gut with the healthy bacteria that sometimes is over populated by the bad bacteria. It can help with diarrhea, constipation, bloating, abdominal cramping, allergies, urinary tract infections and/or yeast infections. I like 365 High Potency Probiotic which can found at Whole Foods.
Brazil Nuts: Eat 2 per day
Eating just 2 per day will give you the recommended amount of selenium you need a day. Selenium can be helpful for your metabolism, Also those with thyroid disorders, auto immune diseases and reproductive issues. Selenium has been proven to be a powerful carcinogenic supplement, inhibiting cancer cells and reducing the risk of several cancers including prostate, breast and uterine. I eat two every morning with breakfast.
