It is recommended that we eat at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables daily. This task can be a chore to accomplish on a daily basis. It is always a good practice to do everything possible to get this recommendation from whole sources of fruits and vegetables especially because some important fibers are missing from drink sources. Since Juice Plus is made from dehydrated fruits and vegetables, it may be an alternative when one does not reach this recommended number of servings per day. Keep in mind that Juice Plus does not replace whole foods and also should not be taken in place of your daily multiple vitamin/mineral formula.
