No Matter How You Slice 'Em, Apples Are a Winner.

What's in an apple? Flavor, definitely. A satisfying crunch, for sure. But the nutritional component is what earns it top billing in Juice Plus+ Fruit Blend capsules and chewables.

 

When it comes to nutritional daily values, a medium-size apple contributes:[1/2]

  • 17% of your dietary fiber, which you need for digestion
  • 14% of your vitamin C, which supports your immune system
  • 6% of your potassium, which is necessary for heart health
  • 5% of your vitamin K, which helps you metabolize calcium

Did you know:

  • Apples are a member of the rose family. (So are pears and a few other fruits!) [3]
  • Apples rank as Americans' 2nd favorite fruit. (What comes in first? Bananas.) [4]
  • 2,500+ varieties of apples are grown in the United States. [3]
  • Six states list apples as their official fruit: Illinois, Minnesota, New York, Vermont, Washington, and West Virginia. [4]
