The general rule of thumb regarding MLM products is as follows:
- They're WAY overpriced;
- They're WAY overhyped; and
- The marketers/distributors tout them as something new and earthshattering; while identical products can be purchased in regular stores often at a fraction of the 'special' MLM price.
Here's one article regarding the product:
Juice Plus+® doesn't live up to claims
If that isn't authoritative enough for you, how about this summary from the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center of New York
Here's a small quote from the Sloan-Kettering site...
While it is true that nutritional supplementation is important in maintaining health in many segments of the population, particularly the elderly, none of the scientific studies undertaken have sought to prove that Juice Plus+® is more effective or more bioavailable than other supplements. In addition, no studies exist to compare the physiologic effects of supplementation with Juice Plus+® and eating whole fresh fruits and vegetables. Juice Plus+® is distributed through a multi-tiered marketing scheme with exaggerated value and cost.
Here's another article from Kansas State University's website
In other words...save your $$...Juice Plus is your classic overhyped, overpriced MLM product.
