It was a wall-to-wall crowd, with folks standing in the back and along the walls on one side. The food was great; and there were (mostly healthy) drinks. But the main speaker was almost an hour late, so I left when he finished at 9 p.m. and didn’t listen to Dr. Mitra Ray.
For most part what John Blair had to say was all old news, or very predictable (JP+ is the best, and way out ahead of all of the rest of the supplements available – we already knew that.) There was some interesting information though, and I took notes. So here I will share with any who may be interested in learning a little more. (All, or most, of the blanks in my notes is filled in by dozens of Posts on the subject over the past ten years on this Blog, and by the JP+ website I get as a Representative: I keep the website so patients and others can access all they want to online, before contacting me to place an Order.)
So here are my notes:
JuicePlus+ John Blair Event
Lynnwood Convention Center
January 27, 2017
John Blair is the Sr. VP of JuicePlus+ – for 27 years
Research common threads… lifestyle diseases: chronic inflammation, immune dysfunction, oxidative stress, & obesity (obesity is going to pass heart disease as the #1 disease…causes of death)
Predation: death by predator (that used to be a big deal – ancestors – verses lifestyle now).
The JP+ study on smoking was done in Italy (big smoking problem there).
NIH, WHO, & NCI… the “5 a Day” push for fruits and vegetables in the daily diet was an effort to get the public to do something in the right direction, they knew it was actually 9-13 servings per day that is recommended in the research.
“Salt, Sugar, Fat” by Michael Moss – about how the food industry worked to find the ‘bliss point’ (brain chemistry) that would have humans keep eating more and more of their food.
San Bernardino, CA – first McDonald’s… Dire Straights song was about McDonald’s
SuperSize Me, the movie: what would happen in 30 days (gained over 24 pounds, etc.) and then how long it took to get back to normal (14 months)
“Younger Next Year” – a book – the over 50 crowd has to exercise 6 days a week (Chris Crowley)
ChooseMyPlate.gov – the government has figured it out (1/2 of the plate is fruits and vegetables!!), but no one is paying any attention!
70% of us are taking supplements regularly… isolated, fragmented, synthesized for the most part (COSTCO).
One study on supplements recently… higher risk of dying (all cause) for woman taking the supplements!
With the JP+ TRIO and the Complete you get over 40 fruits, vegetables, and berries (the TRIO alone has 30 whole foods)
The message of the RAINBOW DIET is (1) to get more colors, and (2) the more pigment the better (darker, e.g., the Vineyard Blend has lots of very dark berries!)
NSF – 3rd Party testing… all of their testing duplicates all the testing already done routinely by JP+
The most thoroughly researched name brand nutritional product on the market (JP+)
35 Medline published studies… compare to any other: none compare.
Over weight boys study… the researcher’s wife became a JP+ representative; the researcher went on to do the 35th JP+ study – he had the burning question (and the connections, resources, etc.)
Industry Conferences… as a Board member of the Council on Responsible Nutrition, and Past Chair, he attends many of these…. Where the talk is more and more about the microbiome… (turns our JP+ is way ahead of the curve and doing the research on how JP+ Trio + Complete affects the microbiome).
JP+ Children’s Health Study – there have now been 750,000 participants!
The CRN overlooks the quality control of the nutritional supplements industry. As past Chairman, Mr. Blair will share insights and trends affecting the industry and explain where JuicePlus+ sits in the bigger scheme of things nutritionally.
Join John Blair, Sr. Vice President of the Juice Plus Company, to get a real look inside the Nutritional Supplementation Industry and the Quality control and Research behind Juice Plus.
John is responsible for leading the Juice PLUS+ Company into the field of nutrition, and was the developer of the manufacturing team that has produced the entire Juice PLUS+ product line since 1993.
