Health Advice: “Scientific studies involving isolated, high-dose, and often synthetic vitamin and mineral supplements have shown conflicting and sometimes even harmful results. One study shows that 2,000 mg a day of vitamin E may delay the progression of Alzheimer’s disease; another suggests that 800 mg is bad for the immune system. 50 mg of beta-carotene decreased the risk of cancer in one group of doctors but actually increased the risk in another.”
Why he recommends Juice Plus+: “Studies have proven that whole foods are the best source of micronutrients, in part because antioxidants and other micronutrients work together in ways we’ve just begun to understand. Whole foods also have thousands of yet-to-be identified phytochemicals that will prove beneficial for human nutrition. I tell my patients: Eat whole foods and take Juice Plus+.”
