Good morning! That’s a tower garden. That’s in front of my house and that’s where we pick our fresh fruits and vegetables. So in addition to healthy living from Juice Plus capsules, we also have healthy living. That’s what I pick and put in my shake in the morning, sometimes. That’s bok choy and that’s Swiss chard and parsley and things like that. There are some more pictures on there. But the tower garden is another way to eat healthy. That’s what I wanted you to see right there. That’s my tower garden. Let’s just keep that picture up.
We don’t have a health care system in this country. We have a disease management system. And the system will manage your disease when you get it. Your health depends on your nutrition. So therefore, your future depends on your nutrition. That was from Dr. Richard DuBois, infectious disease doctor from Atlanta, Georgia. I’d like to ask you a few questions on your health. It’s called the fess up questions. The F stands for fitness. Do you work out regularly? Are you 100% satisfied with your level of fitness? Or would you like to improve it?
Energy. Do you experience getting tired before you get to your to-do list for the day? Do you have constant energy throughout the day? What do you typically do to get an energy burst?
Participants: Drink coffee. Coffee.
Sally: Not good, not good. The first S is for sleep. Do you get seven to eight hours of good sleep per night? Would you consider yourself slightly sleep deprived?
The other S is for sugar and salt cravings. Do you consume processed foods, like soda, chips, crackers and candy, daily? Do you wish you could magically give up your favorite junk food or drink? Would you say you have a sweet tooth? OK. These four questions that I’ve asked you affect your health and your future. If you don’t have good health, you don’t have a future. What is the quality of your life worth to you? The time spent in the doctor’s office for you and your family? Not enough energy during the day? The expense and frustration of taking medication? Wouldn’t you rather spend your time with your family, your friends, your spouse, your grandchildren, doing other things besides going to the doctors and taking medicine?
Let’s talk about the nutritional value of the food that you get in the market. Did you know that 80% of the nutrition is lost in a few days after picking the food there? Most of the food that you get in the market is picked when it’s green. Because if it’s ripe, then it will rot and the markets will lose money on it. They don’t want to do that. Some of those foods even have chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, and some of them can even be contaminated with bacteria. We’ve all heard those horror stories. Penn State University researchers said that, “Time itself is your biggest nutritional enemy.” After eight days of storage at 40 degrees, spinach loses half of its folate, which is the natural B vitamin which helps in pregnancy and the growth of children and young adults.
Did you know that the apples that you pick in the market can be picked two years ago? They’re kept in cold storage. I have a friend up north in Manteca who has a storage like that. They keep apples stored for almost two years. When you cut an apple open and you open it and you see that there’s brown on the inside near the core there, that means that it’s been either frozen or it’s been in cold storage for a long time. So if you’re cutting an apple and it’s not pure color inside there and there are spots in it?
Sally: Now, let’s talk about the nutritional value of Juice Plus, the essence of 27 fruits, vegetables, and grains. They are the colors of the rainbow, Mother Nature’s glory, the brightness, the wonderful things. They are picked when they are vine ripened and then they’re juiced. They’re tested for pesticides and other contaminates that could compromise the quality of that fruit. Raw fruits and vegetables are full of enzymes. The proprietary low process that is used to make Juice Plus guarantees that the enzymes are alive. They are bio available in your body, and they help your body when you digest your food. Anyone can take Juice Plus, from the womb during pregnancy to the tomb at the very end. You can take it.
The October 20th, 2003 issue of TIME magazine says, “The news isn’t that fruits and vegetables are good for you, it’s that they are so good they could save your life.” That’s been proven now nine years later. The difference between Juice Plus and other supplements is that Juice Plus is the most researched whole food based nutritional product in the world. There is not another product out there that can say that and back it up with proof. We have over 28 published studies in medical centers and universities in the United States and around the world. People are more concerned about the poor quality of their food today than they were 20 years ago. There’s a project that’s going to be starting up in Los Angeles to help feed the homeless people. It will involve former President Bill Clinton, Kobe Bryant, and Tim Blank. So Tim was the one that developed that tower garden. The nutritional value of it is excellent. It only uses 10% of water and land space. That’s a lot different than the space you have for conventional gardening. The system recycles its nutrients and waters. And the vertical design reduces that need for land space. Is the value and the quality of your life, the balance of your immune system, and the nutritional value of the food that you buy in the store, worth $2.25 to you?
That’s the cost of Juice Plus, the capsules and the vineyard blend. $2.25 a day. It’s simple, it’s affordable, and it’s convenient. Why would you take a chance and not give you and your family the best nutritional value that’s available out there? Juice Plus has been around for over 20 years. We celebrate the 20th year this year. So NSA is the company with a heart. They are concerned about your health. It’s proven in what we’ve done. We have over 800,000 children on our Juice Plus health study for free. Why aren’t you taking advantage of this? That means 1.6 million people out there are taking Juice Plus, just on the children’s health study. NSA has now come out with a complete nutrition bar. We’re going to sample it today. One of them is Chocolate Mocha, and the other one is Carrot Cake. Sheila is going to pass those out. This is a trial study so I really would appreciate your feedback on that. NSA is asking for this so that we know what we have to do on it. Are there any questions?
Is there any dairy in it?
There is dairy in this, but they’re working on that. That’s why we’re doing it as a trial.
There’s only dairy in the Chocolate Mocha. Is there any soy?
It’s the same mix that’s with the complete so, yes, there is soy in it. There is soy. Any questions?
Is there wheat gluten in this?
No. Mark asked if there was wheat gluten in there. It’s made from amaranth, quinoa, millet, broccoli sprouts, alfalfa sprout powders, and radish sprout powders. Any other questions? I just wanted to let you know that NSA owns the largest organic kale and soy fields in the world. And the goal of NSA is that the ingredients be organic, but that’s not always possible. But the difference is that we are whole food. We are not a supplement. Please learn to read your labels. We are not a supplement.
What’s the price of the tower garden?
Tower garden runs around $600 and that includes the tomato cage. The base unit is with it and then the wheels.
Just the base without . . .?
About $500. And it’s got a motor in there that shoots the water from the inside. It shoots the water from down here all the way up to here. These are the pods. As the water comes down, it sprinkles onto the roots of the vegetables and the fruits, the nutrients that Tim Blank has developed.
So no soil is needed?
No soil is needed in this. This is no soil. This is where the nutrients are coming, and I’ve got it on the ground. So that’s what’s growing there. So all of those plants are being neutralized by that.
Can you make payments on it?
Oh yes, you can make payments on that. It’s about $45 a month for 12 months, interest free. Thank you.
