I took Juice PLus throughout both of my pregnancy because I am an older mommy - 1st pregnancy at 39 and second at 41 - and know the risks of Down Syndrome, etc. I also am very aware that nutrition is Key in preventing down syndrome and a whole bunch of other diseases. But, even with this knowledge, I found that while pregnant, I could only eat certain fruits and veggies, because a lot of stuff turned me off...
So, I decided to start taking Juice Plus because its a blend of 24 fruits and veggies in a capsule. It was easy, I did not have to taste anything that turned my stomach and it did not give me heartburn...
So, I took it double dose for both of my children.
I never once got sick (cold, flu etc) in my pregnancies and what surprised me the most was the down syndrome numbers that I got from my Dr.
So, at 39, my odds of having a down syndrome baby was 1/100 and at 41, the odds were 1/60... That was really scary to me.
When I got tested for down syndrome, my son (1st pregnancy) got odds of 1/17,000 and my 2nd pregnancy (my daughter) got odds of 1/471!!
That made me a believer in Juice Plus and I will take it for the rest of my life.
I have since decided to become a distributor for this product because of what has happened to me.
