I have been asked on so many occasions to share my story, specifically about Juice plus and pregnancy. Today I am writing my story for my readers.

I have been asked on so many occasions to share my story, specifically about Juice plus and pregnancy (2).  The main questions I am asked are: 

  • Can you take juice plus while pregnant?
  • Is juice plus good for fertility?
  • How do you use juice plus post pregnancy?
  • Can you share juice plus and pregnancy research?

I even get asked how to use juice plus to lose weight. 

I promise to answer all these questions today. 

It all started when I was creating my signature program, The Fit & Fab Pre-Pregnancy Program. I was trying for my second child and at the time I was working out a lot. I realised there was no program available for women who want to strengthen their body in readiness for a healthy pregnancy, and post pregnancy. 

During the time I was creating the program, we were trying to conceive. My diet was good, exceptional in fact. I was struggling with a long journey of unexplained hair loss, acne, extreme exhaustion, low sex drive, and depression. I had even seen some doctors and all of them just told me I was ok. Looking back at it, the signs were all there - but I was sure it was just something I had to live with. 

Then, whilst trying to conceive I realised that it was taking much longer than expected. After about one year of trying and 3 different doctors, I was diagnosed with PCOS. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. I didn’t know much about it. The doctor gave me no solutions. 

I walked away that day, happy that I finally had at least a reason for what I was going through. And I was labelled with secondary infertility (as I conceived naturally once before). 

It was time to start healing. I had already tried all the elimination diets and super strict guidelines to attempt to heal whatever was going on.  Nothing worked and I was looking into going on medication. 

A friend of mine in Australia, recommended a product called Juice Plus. I had never heard of it. I studied it. I was searching if it is good for infertility and perhaps it could help me on my journey. I was following an infertility specialist and saw she recommended it. So I said you know what, I will give it a go. I saw that it was also safe for pregnancy and I also saw the juice plus pregnancy study which said: 

Juice Plus and Pregnancy: Juice Plus pregnancy Study

*Dr. Odom compared pregnancy outcomes by reviewing the medical records of all 356 patients after delivery. “The results even surprised me,” he confides. He found that women who had added Juice Plus+® to their regimen had significantly fewer Caesarean deliveries (47% versus 66%), no premature deliveries before 37 weeks (compared to 35 women or 20% of the comparison group), and no diagnosed incidents of preeclampsia (versus 38 cases or 21% of the comparison group). The Juice Plus+® babies fared better as well. They weighed about a half-pound more at birth on average (7 pounds, 11 ounces versus 7 pounds, 3 ounces). None of the Juice Plus+® babies had to be admitted to neonatal intensive care (compared to 17 or almost 10% of the comparison group babies). Similarly, none of the Juice Plus+® babies studied were diagnosed with respiratory distress syndrome (versus 13 or 8% of the non-Juice Plus+® babies). Dr. Odom offers a simple explanation: “Healthier moms have healthier babies.” 1

Here is a picture of my skin, which really showed what was going on inside my body:   

This is after taking juice plus, now in my fourth year. 



I started taking the products and noticed my symptoms slowly improving. It wasn’t overnight. I was also going through infertility treatments. I had 4 failed IUI’s and it wasn’t until my second round of IVF that I was blessed with the pregnancy of my beautiful twin boys. My entire journey from trying to conceive till my pregnancy was about 3 years.  It wasn’t always an easy journey. But I had always trusted in the universe, I knew my journey would serve others and the product helped my symptoms so much so I was in a better place mentally and physically. 

During my IVF treatments my body was in wonderful shape. I thought the experience would take a greater toll on my body and always wondered if it was the wholefood capsules that helped this. I am sure it had a huge part. The journey led me to being able to help others, also trying to conceive, wanting a healthy as possible pregnancy, those struggling with PCOS - and I now share the same package I used. It was very simple for me. It even felt too simple.  If you’d like to use the same package you can personally message me on my whatsapp/ or email me at [email protected] with the subject ‘juice plus info’ and we can see how we can get you started or have more information for you to make the best decision for your journey. 

Here is me pregnant and here are some happy snaps of the boys now. 

So let's get back to some of the questions

Juice plus and pregnancy: 

  • Can you take juice plus while pregnant?

I always advise you to have anything approved by your health professional. But for me, it was a no brainer. They were natural, I read the research, I had not had any success with anything else and it just made sense that taking something with so many types of fruit vegetables and berries could only improve my health. 

“The results even surprised me,” he confides. He found that women who had added Juice Plus+® to their regimen had significantly fewer Caesarean deliveries (47% versus 66%), no premature deliveries before 37 weeks (compared to 35 women or 20% of the comparison group), and no diagnosed incidents of preeclampsia (versus 38 cases or 21% of the comparison group).

  • Is juice plus good for fertility?

I won't say it’s a cure. Is there even a cure for infertility? I'd love to think so but I believe it's something that has so many elements and factors. I remember people just telling me if I relaxed more *By the way, the most annoying comment anyone can hear is that. So just never say that to someone going through infertility.  I would say it helped my journey, and anything that can give me something to make the journey easier - is a tick for me.  Remember that diet is super important for fertility, and this is another way we can impact our health.  If you haven’t already, sign up to my newsletter and I have an amazing plant based recipe book to start seeing some delicious ways you can get more fruit and veg into your diet.



  • How do you use juice plus post pregnancy?

I have been taking it daily for 4 years. Now that I have 3 kids I basically survive on the plant based smoothies too and I run monthly health programs which are free to help support people to feel the best they can! When I was breastfeeding the twins, I relied on the smoothies for a plant based nutritious snack as I had no time at all. I even gave the boys juice plus from when they were 6 months old. That is how much I believe in these products. All my kids take them and the boys have been making their own smoothies since they were 2.5. It gets messy. But they love it and go get the frozen fruit from the freezer, pour in the milk, put in the capsules and it literally makes my day knowing that they start the day with so many vitamins and minerals. It has made me so much more aware that both myself and my family can't get enough nutrition ourselves every day - firstly - I don't have access to 30 varieties of fruit, vegetables and berries.

I am also not a big fan of a lot of sugar so i love that the products are sugar and gluten free. All the products are without any herbicides or pesticides so it's just the only thing that is a must daily for me and my family. The rest is a bonus. 

I did the programs I run for people and I was able to feel super healthy and in good shape very quickly after birth. But ladies, our bodies have performed miracles. I believe in nurturing and a healthy post pregnancy journey. We adapt the program to what phase you are in. Pre pregnancy all the way to post pregnancy. 

Can you share juice plus and pregnancy research?

I have already shared some but here is a great graphic for you to check out about juice plus and pregnancy research - i live visuals so thought you might too. 



How to use juice plus to lose weight? 

I'm not a big fan of diets but what I have found for myself and 100s of clients is that once we focus on giving our body good nutrition, and balancing our bodies - or using a healthy plant based meal replacement with all the micro and macro nutrients - the byproduct can definitely be weightloss. Weight Loss in my view should be changes to our daily lives that still enables us to enjoy life and a plan that is a lifestyle change that can be done forever. I don’t believe that being on a constant diet is the way to go. I am all about 80/20/ I used to be a total crazy health freak - I wouldn't go near certain foods, I'd scan the menu for the healthiest thing, no dressing, hold the bread please, no no no - and I can’t lie. I love eating healthy but I also love a lot of other foods that I restricted myself from. Now I eat what I want, but I keep a healthy balance. I am in the best shape of my life even though I exercise less, I eat what I want, I enjoy life and I have 3 kids and went through a twin pregnancy. I even gave birth vaginally, had the most amazing pregnancy and recovered very well. My delivery doctors literally asked what I was taking as they had never seen such an easy birth and healthy mother.
