Juice Plus is a global biotech and pharmaceuticals organization founded by National Safety Associates, Inc. The company seeks to keep consumers healthy through its nutritional supplement line made from fruits and vegetables. The supplements have been distributed since 1970 via multi-level marketing efforts through independent distributors.
The company claims its products contain the nutritional essence of 17 various fruits, vegetables, and grains that support a healthy immune system and promotes cardiovascular wellness. The headquarters are located in Collierville, Tennessee.
The cost to join Juice Plus as an independent distributor is affordably priced at $50. Distributors earn income through retail sales. Commissions and bonuses begin once a distributor has at least 3 customers. Additional bonuses and commissions are added as a distributor moves up the ranks.
Many distributors enjoy life as a Juice Plus distributor because of the ease of selling the Juice Plus diet lifestyle. Juice Plus products are also easy to sell because of the benefits in creating healthier lifestyles for customers. Juice Plus claims that these are study-supported health benefits of Juice Plus supplements:
The company provides its distributors with sales support materials, business training tools, and marketing programs. Distributors also get access to an online virtual office for them to sign up new customers and edit their own personalized website. Distributors also receive updates on upcoming company events. New distributors are given instructions in a welcome email on how to log into the virtual office.
Juice Plus's products are made from quality ingredients, fresh fruits and vegetables, and packed with other antioxidant-rich ingredients. These farm-fresh foods are carefully tested to ensure no contaminants affect their purity. These fruits and vegetables are then juiced. The juices are concentrated into fruit and vegetable powders using a proprietary drying process that preserves nutrient quality as much as possible through temperature control.
Other naturally sourced ingredients such as proprietary fiber blend and a variety of phytonutrients are also added to the juice powder base to ensure consistent key nutrient levels during each season. All products are manufactured in certified facilities that are 100 percent compliant with food and supplement regulations.
These manufacturing processes are third-party verified by both the NSF International's Good Manufacturing Practices programs and Product and Ingredient Certification programs. The company's product line meets the following industry standard requirements:
The products are distributed in form of Juice Plus gummies, chewables, and capsules. Some of the company's most popular products include:
The Juice Plus Fruit, Vegetable, and Berry Blend products provide the added nutrition of 30 different grains, berries, fruit, and vegetables. The Berry Blend uses Concord Grapes, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, bilberries, and elderberries, among many others. Such antioxidant-rich fruits are extremely healthy.
When customers get on to browse Juice Plus products, they will also notice a case study video detailing the nutritional impact of the vitamin and mineral-rich supplements from Juice Plus. There are currently over 35 case studies which detail the health benefits of Juice Plus fruits and vegetable capsules.
The company works with mid-sized North American family farms. The company states that it personally inspects each farm operation, their hand-picking processes, and weed and insect control processes.
Scientific studies performed on the effects of Juice Plus products generated conflicting and controversial results.
Critics argue that the supplements provide no scientific proof of significant health benefits. They also accuse the company of using misleading claims in marketing materials.
Most of the published peer-reviewed studies on the company's products were funded or authored by the manufacturer or the company itself. The Center for Science in the Public Interest filed a complaint against NSA, Inc. with the FDA in 2007.
They sought to halt marketing of the Juice Plus+ Orchard Blend and Garden Blend capsules because the products appeared to be adulterated and misbranded. They also claimed the company did not properly disclose the right information on the product labeling.
The NSA was sanctioned to withdraw any representations that the products are equivalent to fruits and vegetables or that they meet the same dietary recommendations. Controversy swirled against the company in regards to the product testimonial given by former football athlete O.J. Simpson.
Before the infamous murders he was charged with, he was recorded by the company in March 1994. In the video, he claimed that Juice Plus+ cured his arthritis. However, his defense attorneys presented medical evidence during the trial that his crippling arthritis prevented him from committing the murders.
The NSA canceled his contract and stopped using the celebrity endorsement video.
We could not find a publicly available income disclosure statement for Juice Plus. About half of MLM companies provide one to allow potential representatives to assess earning opportunity. It's difficult to know how much reps can earn with Juice Plus without income disclosure.
I used to hate Juice Plus as a child because their chewable vitamins taste terrible. However, as I got older I came to appreciate the importance of their vitamin supplements! Definitely has helped improve my health!
Company has been notified that a rep by the name of Mark G in arizona has been stalking women under him. He has also been using personal information obtained by purchases for harrassment. Juice plus still employs this stalker, bottom line, a person like this is dangerous.

Concerning the JP+ products: I started from a very skeptical place given that JP+ is marketed in the “personal network” sphere rather than via commercials & on the shelf of my grocer or GNC. However, I started taking the Trio of capsules (sporadically) in the summer of 2013 as a response to a mini health crisis. And while I did not discern an effect on that, I DID note a substantial difference in my allergies...especially in peak season. Again, I was inconsistent (taking it about 5x/week on average) & yet JP+ had helped significantly! This note was a retrospective analysis around the 4th month mark...around the time of my first supply ending. In susbsequent months & yrs I’ve noted other health benefits: First allergies/asthma help -Less frequent bouts w/athlt foot -Long standing IBS issues significantly improved -Indiscernible, But blood test confirmed problems w/a lupus anti-coagulant issue normalized -minor hyperthyroidism normalize -less frequent illness in my kids -shorter bouts w/illness compared to peers when we DO get sick -symptoms of illnesses are less severe (ie vaccination fevers in my 1st child & 2nd child were several degrees different. My 2 y.o. has never seen 103, but my 1st would spike out around 106!) -Having a 2nd child was a surprise 8 yrs in the making...after yrs of miscarriage & yrs of utter silence, just a yr after my wife got on JP+ she was carrying our surprise baby #2! I was 43 & my wife was 38 at the time. We assumed we were out of lick in that dept, but JP+ seems to have been the long awaited answer to our prayer in that arena. I could go on & on, but long story short, I seem to be aging more gracefully than my younger brothers. I have less health issues, & last longer in athletic competition. Life is MUCH Improved w/JP+ in our systems. About the BIZ: I had a 2yr head start on my wife in eating the JP+ capsules. When I’d finally satisfied my curiosities about the veracity of the product & the business model...thanks in no small part to the medical community around me (I was paranoid about MLM’s to be quite blunt), I finally accepted the sporadic invitation of my fruit & veggie dealer to try the business...if for no other reason than to get a discount on my own supply. It was at this point that my wife relented & gave it a try...staying on ever since. I became a VF (2 promotions) in 1-month & abruptly stopped all activity. It was a bit emotionally exhausting & I wasn’t prepared for that. Rejection isn’t easy, & getting tongue-lashed by people who think they know better is downright burdensome. So I checked out for a while—doing a poor job following up w/my first batch of JP+ acolytes & customers—losing most of them. (A big part of the benefit of the JP+ biz is how well they seem to take care of the customer.) But even that first yr doing very little I managed a meager $1500 or so. The yr after I reported about $3k, followed by 5k+, & last yr nearly 7k. I would say my personal approach to the work of JP+ has been somewhere between enthusiastic hobby & part time job. Some weeks I do a lot & others I do nothing at all. However, as I’m faithful in doing the little things (like helping my customers discern the impact of JP+ in them by a simple Q & A process at the 1-month, 4mo & 1 yr mark...) it’s been a big help to both my customer retention & business success. I would gladly lend my name to this worthy product AND the business model. ANYone can do it, if they’ve got a little bit of stick-to-it in their blood. Even the faint of heart can make it w/a teachable heart. You don’t need big dreams (mine are modest). You don’t have to be a certain kind of person. Anyone can do it. And I discern I’m a better, more stout hearted individual for having taken on this work.
This product greatly reduced the pain I've had for over a decade due to a genetic spine disorder and early arthritis. I am celiac and the Complete healed my gut. With these products I regained vitality and am able to get out more and contribute to others. I love the community and the focus on giving back. It is amazing how micronutrients make such a difference. The integrity I experienced first-hand also I appreciate with a network marketing company
Wonderful product, works to help me get my vitamins I need for the day. I have been a customer for over 10 years. The customer services is terrible. They are hard to get a hold of if you have any problems. Delivery has been late. For some reason, they seemed to always ship too much product.
I was getting skeptical of the customer service from the company. A while ago I was sent a letter regarding some issues with my garden tower and I was to unplug it until the issue was resolved. This concerned me a bit. I waited for months and still no resolution. Customer service took longer than I'd hoped to respond to my emails. I voiced my concerns of some bad reviews I saw about their service on a website. And you know what... I received an email from them today offering them to go above and beyond to help me out. They even thanked me for the negative criticism saying it will only help them improve. They were very understanding. To me, i believe this company deserves a chance. Makes me want to see what other products they offer so I can continue to be a customer with them.
I've been taking Juice Plus for 5 years! My allergies have gone away, I havent been sick within those 5 years. My daughter takes them and it has helped her focus and be more aware of eating her fruits and vegetables! As a former athlete and college football player I had a lot of aches and pains from previous of playing. Since Juice Plus was added to my life it's been a complete 180!! MORE ENERGY, NO ACHES, NO PAIN!!
Our experience with juice plus was a desperate decision for answers when our son wasn't responding well to prescription medication for IBS. He was losing a ton of weight, bleeding ulcers, and we were in and out of the hospital with our young son. We had to take him out of public school and have him join an online academy because he needed a restroom near him 24:7. This was heartbreaking to go through with our middle schooler. A friend told us about their friend who has Chrohn's disease and was taking a supplement called juice plus to help regulate her symptoms. We are skeptical of all the scams and on a tight budget. However; we were searching for answers and called her. She made no promises what so ever but told us how the product had helped her upset stomach due to food sensitivities. We signed up and put our son on the supplement. His symptoms began to clear up within the first couple weeks and almost completely within 1 month. He is no longer on medication and he is back in public school after a year of being on the product. His symptoms are not completely gone but usually it is a triggering food that causes it but he's improved by at least 80%. We take comfort in knowing that he's getting fruit and vegetable supplements since his body can't always handle the acids in raw foods. I wouldn't tell anyone this product is a cure for disease but I would say that it is a tool against it for sure!!

I have taken Juice Plus capsules (awesome plant powders) since 2016 and decided I need to sign up as a distributor 2 months ago. First, I have recognized a huge difference in my recovery time after endurance runs and workouts. Second, started taking the omegas when they were introduced this year—amazing for this gal’s “life change” (over 50). Third, my husband started taking the capsules and drinking the complete powder in a smoothie daily. Other co-workers (younger 20-40s) asked him where he gets all of his energy and fitness ( he’s 56). He credited Juice Plus because he has noticed the difference over 60+ days. He bacame my marketing rep without even realizing it. Haha! Finally, I ASKED my distributor to sign me up for the business so I could get a small discount on the product. I was completely surprised at how easy and low-cost it is to start. It’s not only the products, but a mission to help people live healthier and more fulfilling lives. Then there’s the fantastic Tower Garden—part of this business you have access to that is not mentioned in the bio or review. As part of this business, we have now started weekly “Wellness Walks” to get people together, explore our local parks and incorporate healthy habits into their lives. It’s way more than a business. It’s a mission to take healthy back!

Complete scam. Treats their employees like crap. Dont fall for it!!
I have been taking the Juice Plus capsules for about a year now. Since taking them I have rarely had a headache, my hair and nails grow so much better/faster, and I do not struggle with inflammatory joint problems like I used to. I am so thankful for this whole food in the form of capsules!
My kids have used the gummies. Cleared their facial eczema within weeks. My 16 year old son made the best grades ever after taking Juice Plus. Nothing but positive results.
I was introduced to Juiceplus in Feb 2010. I became a distributor in Oct 2010. Before starting JP my kids and i were always sick. Always at the Dr office, ER, clinic... it was just ridiculous. After being on JP, I noticed my kids and i were not as sick as we had been in the past. In Oct or Nov of 2015, due to finances, and the fact that I just forgot, we stopped taking JP. During that year my kids began to get sick again, a lot. Missing most of the school year due to constant dr visit, blood work, all kinds of tests. We spent more time at the Dr's and at home that year. In late Jan of 2017, my daughter was diagnosed with Hashimotos disease. My son just continually had virus and stomach issues. With him we could never get answers. I then realized we needed to get back on JP. In March of 2017, my daughters Dr reconfirmed to me that "YES" we should have never stopped. With that said, I will NEVER EVER stop giving my kids JuicePlus. Once we got back on by the next school year about Nov 2017, my daughter was off the inhalers and the medication. My son had stopped complaining about his stomach or getting fever anymore, I think by Sept 2017. This is my experience. And, from experience with how it has helped my friends and family who are on JP -- every body is different. Some people it takes a longer or shorter time to experience a difference. Food is medicine! And, this is all it is. Whole Food Plant based Nutrition. As for the customer service...No issues. Always kind and helpful
This is great company!! I love the natural products. They are helpfull, great taste and an easy going program with the products! I can reconment every one to use juice plus products or become a distributor.
Great products, great system, just love the company!
juice plus is fantastic, super company for working. best support for home base business
I love the Juice Plus Capsules ! I've been taking Juice Plus and my eczema has cleared up and I have lots of energy. I became a distributer and love being part this great company.
Juice plus has changed my families health tremendously kids had exzema clear up after about a month on the capsules my husbands gums stopped bleeding and no longer requires deep cleanings at the dentist, as far as the research being not significant there arre over 30 of the satudies published in peer reviewed medical journals that are availble to read online. All the studies are done by major universities yes they pay to get studies started but have no control over the outcomes of the studies goods or bad.
I LOVE JUICE PLUS! With it's help I've recovered from RA, my daughter from fainting and my son from eczema! I've seen countless of my friends have amazing results!!!
Love this company! I began taking this product in 2009 and have been a distributor since 2010 following great improvements in my digestive health attributed to this product alone. World class customer service that stands behind their product. Will take it the rest of my life based solely on the health benefits I have personally experienced in addition to close friends and families improvements I have witnessed myself first hand.

By far the best company to work with, deal with, and best health/wellness product on the market.
Best company in Customer Service.Great Products!
This product is a complete nutritional program which has helped me get chronic illnesses under control, making a huge change in my life. I would recommend this product to anyone wanting to provide nutritional support so their body will get healthier and stronger. It is my understanding that the only involvement in the research from Juice Plus is by supplying the product that is being tested, and that they are not directly involved in any other way.
I began taking Juice Plus+ in 2009 and became a distributor in 2011. In that time, I have lived a healthier lifestyle and helped others to do the same. We make no claims that our product cures or heals any one person but do stand behind our research. It is the most thoroughly researched nutraceutical. And keep in mind, any company with a product to sell pays for the research.
When looking through companies to consider I found this company to have more quality research to back their products and several physicians in the area recommending it to their own patients. My personal physician recommended it to me. i did view their compensation plan and must say no one has a plan like it in your listed businesses. As an outsider, you might want to reconsider where you have them listed in your numbers. i had ordered and consider them to have some of the most excellent customer service i have ever encountered. i have visited their head quarters and found that i have never seen anyone value their employees more highly than this company. I also researched and found out how much this company gives back to their community and thinks of others. I believe that they are a company who invests in others. Still researching and I have been impressed with who is a part of their company. you may want to investigate a little further as i do not see references to their giving, and the actual research behind it. Very interested in where your information comes from if not internet based. i have been to the companies and communities around them. This company seems much higher in recommendation than you give it.
I experience a very fair commission plan. I enjoy the fact that I have no obligations whatsoever, zero investment except for the fee (for the back office etc.) I especially like the scientific background. This puts me into the position to recruit even health experts. Altogether it is a 100% safe product without flaws and a fair commission/bonus plan. But it is still work and no self propelling business.
The product works as advertised... It fills the gap between you let veggies and fruit intake... I have a hard time keeping fruit and vegetables fresh and find I throw them away or don't buy and eat as much as I should. Kids take it and have not been sick the past year.
I've been taking Juice Plus since I was six years old and I've been extremely impacted by the nutrition I put in my body. The people working with Juice Plus are so kind and not pushy at all! They WANT what's best for you, not for them. It's a great company with a great purpose.
I highly recommend Juice Plus as a product and company. There are so many amazing stories of how this has changed people's lives for the better. I'm an Australian franchisee and our products are limited to the capsules, chews and balanced shakes which makes it a simple product to market. The support within the business is second to none and it's certainly the kind of workplace that I would recommend to anyone!
I started using the products about a year and a half ago after seeing and feeling the benefits I soon got my husband and two children using it, we love the products for what they have done for us that my husband and I both joined as distributors.
Fantastic company to work for, after working for other MLMs ranked higher I'm baffled. Juice Plus have a fantastic commision scheme, great incentives, fantastic morals & ethics. I would 100% reccomend this business over any other!
