To learn more about the Juice Plus+ Omega Blend and why you should consider adding it to your Juice Plus+ routine, check out our Q&A with Liza Pepple, Director of Product Innovation, below!
Q: What is the Juice Plus+ Omegas Blend?
A: The Juice Plus+ Omega blend is a 100% plant-based omega capsule product made from a naturally balanced blend of omega 3, 5, 6, 7 and 9 fatty acids.The Omega Blend is the perfect complement to the Juice Plus+ Orchard, Garden, and Vineyard Blends, working together to bridge the nutritional gaps between what you should eat and what you actually eat while helping fuel a healthy lifestyle.
Q: Why Do You Use Algal Oil Rather than Fish Oil, Like Many Other Omega 3 Products?
A: Many people don’t know that fish actually get their omega 3’s from algae. By harvesting omegas from the original algae source instead of fish, we’ve ensured the Omega Blend delivers a pure and sustainable source of omegas, including the all-important DHA and EPA omega fatty acids. We like to say that we’re just cutting out the middle fish and going to the original plant source.
Q: Why Does the Omega Blend Contain Omegas 3, 5, 6, 7 and 9?
A: We believe in providing whole food nutrition, in nature’s proportions, and the Omega Blend is no exception. The omegas 6 and 9 come naturally from many of the plant-based oils in our Omega Blend, especially the raspberry and tomato seed oils. The omegas 5 and 7 are extracted from the pomegranate seeds and sea buckthorn berries. Since we aren’t changing the ratios of the omegas as they are found in fruits and algae, we are taking advantage of nature’s balance to ensure optimum benefits.
Q: How are the Oils in the Omega Blend Processed?
A: As with all Juice Plus+ products, we do our best to ensure minimal processing. For the Omega Blend, we start by cold-pressing the seed oils from pomegranate, raspberry, tomato and safflower. This process is similar to the way high-quality olive oil is made, and allows us to extract the oils without using harsh chemicals. The algal oil and sea buckthorn berry oils are processed differently because they aren’t seeds (so they can’t be pressed the same way), but those processes too are at low temperature to ensure that the nutrients remain and no contaminants are added.
Q: Why Does the Capsule Look Different Than Other Omega Oil Products?
A: We use a state-of-the-art process to fuse two hard shell vegetarian capsules made from tapioca together to form the Omega Blend. This process and the shell material itself provides unparalleled protection for the oils inside the capsule, ensuring a high-quality nutrient product.
Q: Is the Omega Blend Vegetarian?
A: Yes. All of the ingredients, including the new capsule shell, are vegetarian.
Q: Will the Omega Blend Fit Within My Dietary Guidelines?
A: The Omega Blend contains 100% non-GMO ingredients, no artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, is gluten-free and kosher certified, and will fit within most people’s dietary guidelines.
Q: How Should the Omega Blend Be Taken?
A: We recommend taking two capsules per day with a glass of water and/or a meal. Children under the age of 13 could take only one capsule per day.
So, what are you waiting for? Add the Juice Plus+ Omega Blend to your routine today!
