Dental Health and Juice Plus+
more than 30 published clinical studies, researchers tell
us what Juice Plus+ does inside and outside your body.
Here is an
overview of the Juice Plus+ research published,
completed and still underway.
How Juice Plus+ contributes to a healthier smile
Frank Eggleston, DDS
In the first clinical study of Juice Plus+ from a dental perspective, researchers at the
University of Birmingham, United Kingdom
(full article) recently completed the clinical phase of their analysis of the impact of Juice Plus+ on measures of gum health in 60 adults.
“Everyone knows about brushing and flossing,” explains Frank Eggleston, D.D.S. and
President of the American Academy of Restorative Dentistry.
“But good nutrition is just as critical to dental health. It helps you build a healthier mouth from the inside out –
healthier bone, healthier nerves, and healthier gum tissue.”
Dr. Eggleston has been eagerly anticipating the Birmingham results. “They analyzed two things that are
very important to us dentists – pocket depth and gingival attachment.”
Dr. Eggleston explains each term. “There is a pocket around every tooth, like a moat around a castle. If
that pocket gets too deep, then we get into dental problems. But if that pocket is shallow, then we can actually get to
that area through flossing and brushing and keep it clean. The second term – gingival attachment – is like a belt around
the tooth that keeps it planted rock solid in the bone.
“Improved gingival attachment leads to improved bone attachment underneath.” Dr. Eggleston continues.
“Improving both pocket depth and gingival attachment means that the tooth is planted more firmly in the bone and
supported by strong, pink tissue that can be kept healthy and clean.”
“If Juice Plus+ is shown to improve either
of these factors, it would be impressive,” Dr. Eggleston suggests. “But
if it improves both – as I expect – it simply corroborates what I’ve experienced in my own practice. I’ve put so many patients with
unhealthy, bleeding gums on Juice Plus+ – and then they come back a few months later either not bleeding at all or
bleeding very little. Their gum tissue is no longer red and beefy, but pink and beautiful.
“To a dentist, it’s the look of health,” Dr. Eggleston concludes. “And healthier gums lead to healthier
teeth and a more beautiful smile.”
second study took place in Würzburg Germany, where they studied the effects of Juice Plus+
on the outcome of established periodontal treatment in patients with poor gum health.
third study, now completed and awaiting publication, answered the question
"Can Juice Plus+ improve post-operative Quality of Life after wisdom tooth
extraction?" This was a gold standard, randomized, placebo-controlled, 11
week study with 183 patients. Quality of Life and pain levels were significantly
better in the Juice Plus+ group compared to placebo even in the week after
surgery. The study abstract was presented at a Dental Conference in Boston,
Thousands of dentists have seen the benefits of Juice Plus+ in the mouths of their patients. As a result many of them
began taking Juice Plus+ themselves and providing it to their families.
Now hundreds of dentists around the world are recommending Juice Plus+ and seeing even greater benefits in their
patients and in their practices, where whole food nutrition is a perfect fit with preventative dentistry. Please watch
Dr. Eggleston's short video below.
Dr. Eggleston can also be heard on this recorded conference call,
discussing with UK dentists and researchers his experience and the ongoing Juice
Plus+ research on periodontal disease.
