Does Shakeology Really Work?
December 12, at Hi Bella, stick w your gut and say NO to coaching. Where are all the Unbiased Shakeology Reviews? Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. Mark Sisson is the founder of Primal Kitchen, and I enjoy most of his products. Hi Jenny, Impossible to say without having more details.
What is a Detox Reaction
It is has been researched and published in over 30 medical journals around the world and has had no negative findings.
I believe this is why so many doctors and nurses as well as dentist are recommending this product to their patients. Reason why I decided to try the product. As far as price goes. So why care about the cost of keeping yourself and family healthy.
Just look at it as a really good health insurance rider!!!! The dental concerns well a lot of things we basically eat turn to sugar. My father has gum disease. Since taking JP his condition has improved. No I am not a distributor but maybe in the future when school is over. Yes I will recommend this product to all my pregnant clients.
If you need a distributor I can recommend mine. I also recommend you look at http: The package states that the adult dose is FOUR of each of the two types. I just read the label on my JP bottle. Is it better to take the fruits and veggies twice a day verses all at once? As an adult taking 8 chewables seems like a lot to digest.
You can split the dose in any way that you would like. I usually take half in the morning in my smoothie and the other half at lunchtime. I tend to get an energy boost shortly after eating the gummies. I would like to put my 12 year old son on the capsules but I am going to buy them from a friend who has unopened bottles left over.
Can anyone tell me how many he should take of each a day? He is starting to get really bad spots. Many thanks in advance. You need to give things at least that long to give them a chance to work.
As far as cost goes, you probably spend more on maintenance for your replaceable vehicle than you would maintaining your irreplacable body. I waited until I experienced so many positive changes in my own health before becoming a wellness educator, so I can tell you on a personal level it worked for me.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me through my website… http: I have also just started taking JP this week hoping it will help me as well with inflammation and OA.
Before this hit me I was very active with the farm, horses and grandkids. As well as changing lifestyle habits I am hoping this helps as well so I can get back to my old self or close. Also remember this product has NOT been shown to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent ANY disease no matter what any health professional involved with the marketing of this product may infer , but fruit and veggies will, make sure you clean them well.
Remember, if it looks like a duck, quacks likes a duck, and swims like a duck,…………, and I think this duck is about money. Wake up people to the marketing scams, you want to live healthy, eat a healthy diet. There is no substitute. Here is some food for thought. I completely disagree with all the negative comments about juice plus. I have been on the product for now for 10 weeks. My health has increased drastically. I have lost over 3 stone that was much needed. This has helped me get back to the gym recently too.
I agree they are costly when the whole household is taking them but the benefits have definitely outweighed the cost for me. Any form of food in capsules is not real food,only an industry product.
End of story with this Juice Plus. I eat real fruits and real vegetables on a daily basis and I feed them to my kids too. Whoever feeds whatever solo precious capsules,juices etc to his kids is plain irresponsible for me.
To the lovers good for you. To the haters, you are entitled to your opinion whether personal or professional. If this product changes only lifestyle, then what is wrong with that? If you see no difference, then stop using it.
If you had a reaction to it then again, discontinue use. No one is forcing anyone to use it product. Some of the comments on here are just a waste of a good tread.
Probably the most sensible comment on the page thus far. YMMV as they say. I am not too fond of swallowing pills, but I have been taking chewable vitamins for over a year now.
I have heard of Juice Plus before and thought the idea to be a good one, especially considering the contents and their synergistic properties.
Natalia, have you tried juice plus? Maybe you should learn to reconsider how you say thing! I have been taking Juice PLus for eleven years and became a distributor ten years ago. The first thing that thrilled me about Juice Plus was that my cravings for sugar greatly diminished and my son started craving carrots. All my blood work has improved through the years. I get compliments all the time about how young I look, love that!!
I appreciate the fact that Juice Plus offers educational seminars conducted by highly credentialed and successful health care professionals all over the world. As far as the cons go here, I am not aware of any comprehensive multivitamin that even exists that contains everything in one pill and that has any independent clinical research to back its safety or efficacy.
Comparing Juice Plus to a multi is like comparing apples to oranges except the multivitamin has no apples or oranges that Juice Plus has including thousands of phyto-nutrients, live enzymes.
You can order the orchard or garden separately if you choose to do so. The sugars used are only naturally occurring sugars. Erika — college students can get on it for free. Or at least half off by splitting with another college students. Casey, here is some information about xylitol and how it is produced: Thanks for this honest review of Juice Plus. I have been approached by a friend of my fathers to get involved in selling the product via network marketing, but I need to investigate the claims further.
I am already very much into juicing fresh organic fruits and vegetables, I have seen the benefits for my health, especially my hair and skin.
These capsule seem like a good idea in theory only as a supplement , especially for those who are too busy and juicing can be messy — however until I review the reseach claims I will not by buying the product or getting involved in selling either. By the way the link in the article to Juice Plus research is broken not found — the correct link can be found here: You can order just the Garden Blend.
Contact your distributor or go directly to The Juice Plus Company. Let me know if you need help. Hi the pills are a little lrg…. Juice plus is not a meal replacement. There are pros and cons just like anything we actually eat.
I have found way more pros than cons…and its to fit each individuals. Overall, I have felt much more healthier since starting the regime. Kudos to Juice Plus and to each his own. I have a science background and my husband is an RN. We have 2 little kids and have incorporated Juice Plus into our daily lives. My daughter has sensory processing disorder a sensory seeker and puts her hands all over everything then into her mouth.
After a year on Juice Plus, she literally never gets sick. I think Juice Plus is amazing and for all the skeptics out there, please do your research on the hard data. Come on people, you cant improve what nature already provided I cant see how heating and concentrating to a powder fruits and veggies can bring you good health. Eat fresh fruits and veggies and then watch your health skyrocket..
There just big pharma profiting from sickness and now giving the magic pill to restore the health that they already stole. It is impossible to deliver the nutrients of five servings of fruits in several capsules weighing mg. As a Registered Holistic Nutritionist I believe we should be getting our nutrients from whole foods however in this fast paced world, we are not taking the time and effort to do so. I am on the road a week out of every month and find it hard to stick to a healthy dietary routine in certain parts of the country.
I take Juice Plus myself and think of it as an insurance policy. The biggest differences I have noticed is in my hair and nails and my quality of sleep. It has all improved immensely. I take a probiotic daily as well as a fish oil supplement and find that works well for me.
I have always been a strong believer in find what works for you and stick with it. If you like Juice Plus, fabulous! If you prefer to get your nutrients from your food, good for you! In terms of peer review those peers are usually on the JP payroll. I have been looking into this for months and have yet to see an independently funded, peer reviewed paper that shows any real benefits…..
I do not have a problem with adults taking in addition to a regular diet! However I do Not think kids should took take it until teenage years! Parents who chose to do it for them is fine. But also teach your kids to eat fruits and Vegs. I find it bezarre that your son now loves carrots after taking a pill. Each time I here somebody raving about this product they are always selling it.
My sister gave it to me. I should say that these products work for me. I have a good relaxing sleep and when I wake up ,I feel so fresh. I work at night and sleeps during day time. Juice plus really helps me a lot. I would like to buy these product but I am wondering where to buy here in Cebu Philippines. Anyone can recommend where I will order Juice Plus? My second issue was with the sugar substitute comment, but it was addressed in a previous post in that only naturally occurring sugars are used.
It is a bridge between what you should eat and what you are actually or not actually eating. If you consume enough raw fruits and vegetables to suffice a serving a day intake, then bravo. I know that I do not. This product simply lets me get a little closer to a fully balanced nutritional diet.
If anyone has any comments concerns or direct questions you can visit my webpage at http: Our family has been taking JP for almost 3 months. We noticed changes right away though we made minor changes to our diet as well. We usually ate well but did like to snack a lot and I was a fast food momma with three kids. After starting JP, all our tastes changed and we ate better.
That is a very brief summary. If it works for you, great. If not, to each his own. Please visit the website to get current information, as new studies come out regularly, showing benefits to the nutrients of Juice Plus. My husband and I have not missed a day in nearly 14 years, and we also grow organic foods, in soil and hydroponically. No one will tell you that this takes the place of a healthy diet, only that it fills the gaps between our best efforts and the servings currently recommended for daily optimal health.
I welcome any questions. You are entitled to your opinion. I appreciate the others who tried to offer objective feedback. Single Mom on Juice Plus for 10 yrs… started in during a sinus infection fever.
Started taking had no more sinus infections since … Juice Plus is all natural and its a Whole Food Nutrition that is why it has nutrition facts and not Supplement facts.
It is worth it to try. It takes 21 days for your blood to cycle through so the 4 month supply is a good test to see what it does. My siblings all have high Blood pressure, migraines, and both brothers have had strokes.. I have had none of this and I am at present lbs down from It is not a cure all that is true..
But for the benefits it does provide I love it. Hi, what i find most off putting about juice plus is the distributors hyping it up as some sort of miracle health giving food. I eat healthily most of the time and take a good but inexpensive all round multi vitamin and on average get probably 2 colds a year. A work colleague sold me juice plus complete about 5 months ago and I stopped taking my usual multivitamins and used this instead.
Just one juice a day to maintain my normal weight. Over priced over hyped in my opinion and only beneficial to people who were not eating as healthy as they should before using this product. Hi, while I wait for my first comment to be moderated I have read most of the comments. Firstly, in the UK where I live the recommendation is to consume at least 5 a day fruit and veg not the large amounts I am reading in the comments, maybe the fruit and veg here is more nutritious who knows.
I also see juice plus being promoted as more than a food supplement which it is not. When the only juice flavours are vanilla and chocolate, the most prevalent sweet flavours on the shelves I find that hard to understand.
If you are healthy and have a good diet its a waste of money and if you feel you need supplements on a regular basis then look at your overall diet. In the provided link, it clearly says those studies are funded by none other than Juice Plus! I agree that it is possible that funding can sway results of a study. What is the design? Was a placebo used?
Length of the study? I just read this entire thread of comments and needed to weigh in. My wife got me some and asked me to start taking it and so to keep peace in the house I agreed. I am not a health nut and pretty much each whatever I want as I travel a bit for work.
I have to say that after taking Juice Plus for 3 weeks I noticed a difference. The biggest things were I felt more rested in the mornings when I woke up. Had more energy right out of the gates which was a nice change. Also I use to get at least colds each winter and now when I feel like a cold might be coming on it just goes away. This stuff really works for me. I consistently take 2 per day first thing each morning and before I go to bed and that works for me.
My kids take it as well as my wife and our experience has been very good. We DO NOT sell this stuff as I do not get pulled into the marketing of it, but just have a unbiased and very skeptical experience. I do not take any other vitamins or supplements.
I think like anything else out there like Juice Plus you have to give it at lest 30 days of consistently taking it to really see and feel difference. Some folks I know see the difference right away within 1 week while others it takes longer weeks. Nothing replaces eating healthy but my life style makes that very difficult so JP is the answer for me. Oh yeah, I have to say that I listen to my wife more often now as its made me healthier!
It is a great way to bridge the gap! When you eat better you crave better foods its just a natural thing that occurs!
It is the fastest result you will see and that alone will make all other effects possible. If you consume more than the required amount of fruits and veggies and they are the remedy along with clear liquids for more ailments than you can see that the claims people are making are more than just talk. Try it for 4 months, drink a glass of water with the 2 capsules of red and 2 capsules of green for adults or 1 and 1 for children 12 and under open capsules and pour into yogurt, purees, etc.
Or if you opt for the gummies my favorite as they are my sweet treat for the day 4 red and 4 green for adults and 2 red and 2 green for kids. These ingredients are rife with contamination of heavy metals, industrial building chemicals, and carcinogens. A recent study reported that those taking supplements have a higher incidence of cancer. I feel this could well be from all the crap in our supplements from the Chinese and Mexican sources. My neighbor noticed the difference in my energy levels when I was on the capsules.
She asked what was going on I had been out working in the yard more. The only difference in my life was the JP. I have to admit I am no longer on the product but not because of any reason other than the cost. I am retired and can no longer afford it. I did start on the Complete recently. I am Type 2 diabetic and trying to do better with my diet. After 4 months and 20 lb weight loss I am sick of eggs..
At my last visit he recommended a protein shake. I put 3 frozen strawberries and 3 frozen slices of banana with filtered water and use a Nutri Blast blender. This is like having ice cream for breakfast. Of course you can vary the fruit you use—blueberries blackberries peaches mangos etc. I buy the frozen berries in various mixes. It may not be the best product on the market but if you get the best, it tastes horrible and you quit using it what was the point?
At least I can drink this. As for the health I have noticed no adverse effects. My sugar is down and that was the goal. It is available on Amazon if you cannot find a distributor. Do the math and figure out how much a serving will be. But beware of the scammers selling it for 50 bucks a pouch it should be no more than just a little over My wife and I along with 3 grandkids have been taking Juice plus for 2 years now, My wife takes the capsules and our grandkids and I take the gummies.
We love the gummies. No one has had a cold in 2 years except for maybe feeling like we were coming down with one, when that happens we double up. The 2 older grandkids have not missed a day from school since starting. We all feel great, lots of energy, but we eat fairly well to begin with… As for cavities, our grandkids take the gummies before bed followed by brushing their teeth. Common sense, any gummies will cause cavities.
So make sure they brush their teeth after consuming. They would after eating candies, would they not. You can open the capsules and mix them into anything that is not heated. I usually add mine to my morning smoothie. I have not tried adding them to plain water though. With great skepticism I started taking the juice plus capsules. I have had type 2 diabetes for more than ten years, and was suffering several deteriorating conditions, including numbness of the feet and serious problems with my vision, such as severe sensitivity to light.
Within a few short weeks I have seen a remarkable improvement in many areas — the sensitivity to light is mostly gone, the numbness in my feet has diminished, I wake up in the morning awake and alert instead of being dog tired even after several cups of coffee, more energy generally and less desire for sweet foods. These capsules may or may not help everybody, but I can definitely say that they are worth trying, despite the high cost. Juice Plus Posted at Juice Plus , supplements.

Instead the nutrition facts below is a summary of what can be found in Vega One Chocolate and Chocolate Vegan Shakeology. Vitamins and minerals are not stated because it can vary from sourcing and no vitamin and minerals isolates are used to guarantee a certain amount. Flax seed and chia seeds are used in Shakeology but there is no guarantee of Omega 3. Shakeology only beats out Vega One by providing several Super Food ingredients that are not offered anywhere else.
In fact, Discovery News wrote about Darin Olien, creator of Shakeology, and how he interacts with several different medicine man and other ancient civilizations in order to find the ingredients that are in Shakeology. While Vega One covers a few of the everyday ingredients you can find at your local supermarket, Shakeology took it on itself to find whole-food, superfoods from around the world to benefit your health.
The same superfoods that ancient civilizations have been using in order to maintain their health. There you have it, after comparing Shakeology vs Vega One , we find that both are pretty pricey but Shakeology offers the most nutrition groups of the two. Additionally, Shakeology includes super foods that have been used by ancient civilizations that helps promote health and overall well-being.

To be fair, the only flavors that compare to Vega One are the tropical strawberry and chocolate. As the other flavors for Shakeology are not vegan, they should not be used in the comparison. Hi Jennifer… Yes, under the Nutritional Facts, only the Chocolate Vegan Shakeology was compared to Vega One so that only the same flavor and the vegan options were compared. The other flavors were not really used as a comparison but it was stated that there are other Shakeology flavors that are not Vegan because of the whey protein.
