Scrambled Legs. Kids on the Run.

Kids were born to run, but whether they’re joining you on a run or participating in a sports program, they require guidance to ensure  they remain lifelong runners. These simple steps can help kids go the distance.

  • Yoga! It improves strength, flexibility, breathing capacity, and balance.
  • Make it Fun!  Sign up for races that glow, use color, or require a costume.  Running doesn’t have to all blood, sweat, and tears.
  • Juice Plus. Little bodies need nutrients to power through those agonizing miles.  These nutrients come from the food you eat.  Juice Plus contains 20 different fruits, vegetables, and grains.  Call me for more information.
  • Model it.   Parent’s actions have a profound effect on their children’s behavior.  Children who see their parents exercising will be more apt to engage in the same behaviors. So get moving!
  • Hydrate.  Skip the colored or sugared drinks.  Water is all you need to power through a run.  Make water fun with lemons, limes, or cucumbers.
  • Healthy Habits for Life. Track your progress and set healthy goals for everyday of the week.  The more you engage in an activity the easier it gets…

Juice Plus+ For Improved Health

Fruits market

WHAT IS JUICE PLUS+?

Juice Plus+ is whole food based nutrition, including all the amazing antioxidants in 30 fruits, vegetables, and grains just minus the water. Juice Plus is available in chewable and capsule form. Both forms deliver the same healthful benefits.

 HOW DOES IT IMPACT HEALTH?

Juice Plus+ contains multiple antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, and folate, which strengthen cells involved in immune functioning. This is important because antioxidants do exactly what the name implies; they prevent oxidation reactions in the body. Oxidation causes “free radicals” which damage cells and cause aging. It’s okay to have oxidative reactions in the body, but we don’t want the by-products, free radicals, wreaking havoc and making us sick. Oxidative stress has been associated with many diseases including, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, and Parkinson’s disease.

WHAT DOES THE RESEARCH SAY?

  • Researchers conducted a 6-month study on Juice Plus+ to determine the preventive effects on common cold symptoms (Roll, Nocon, & Willich 2011). Juice Plus+ led to a 20% reduction in common cold symptom days in healthcare workers exposed to patient contact.
  • A Florida study found significantly increased antioxidant plasma levels in a group of stressed out law students who took Juice Plus+ for 77-days (Nantz, Rowe, Nieves, & Percival, 2008). This means that despite their stress the law students had increased antioxidants in their bloodstream.
  • Research demonstrated increased immune functioning and improved inflammatory markers in a 28-week period in police special forces trained men (Lamprecht, Oettl, Schwaberger, Hofmann, & Greilberger, 2007). Thus, men who are physically fit and active have reduced inflammation and higher antioxidants in their bloodstream.

Juice Plus+ has been researched by leading hospitals and universities. There are over 30 research studies that validate the benefits of Juice Plus+.   Therefore, it is a great way to enhance health and prevent disease in children and adults. Order yours today by clicking on  this link.
