My name is Jenny Piazza. I am a wife, a mother of three beautiful children, and on a mission to provide parents with information and helpful tools to achieve maximum health for their families.
The one thing almost everyone agrees on is that eating more fruits and vegetables can improve our health and reduce the risk of cancer, stroke, and heart disease. Every fruit, veggie, nut, and grain has thousands of phytonutrients, which help our body ward off diseases. However, very few of us eat the frequently recommended 7 - 13 daily servings for various reasons, such as: 1) the increased price of fresh produce, 2) the lack of availability of seasonal produce, and 3) sometimes, children don't want to eat the veggies and other healthy foods we provide for them.
I would like to share with you a product my family uses to help bridge the gap between what we should eat and what we actually eat. It is called Juice Plus+. Juice Plus+ is an all-natural, whole food based nutritional product made by juicing a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, and then concentrating the juices into powders using a proprietary, low-temperature process. It comes in capsule or chewable form. Juice Plus+ is NOT a vitamin supplement. It provides WHOLE FOOD based nutrition.
Clinical research has found that Juice Plus+:
- Helps support healthy immune system
- Helps protect DNA
- Delivers key phytonutrients that are absorbed by the body
- Reduces oxidative stress
- positively impacts several key indicators of cardiovascular wellness
Additional health tips:
It is the perfect time of year to shop at your local Farmers' Markets. Local Farmers pick their produce right before bringing it to market, which allows it to fully ripen on the vine increasing the nutrient value. In addition, produce in-season not only tastes better it is also cheaper.
Eat all the colors of the rainbow!!! Make sure the colors are deep and vibrant. For example, pick the reddest strawberries or the darkest green broccoli. The deeper and darker the color, the more antioxidants and vitamins the fruit and veggie provides. You can turn this into a fun educational game while shopping with your children.
