We recently welcomed Chris Hagel of Juice Plus to the Chamber with a Ribbon Cutting!
Juice Plus provides whole food based nutrition from 30 different fruits, vegetables, and grains, in capsule form. Of course, there is no substitute for eating a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. But because most people simply can’t, don’t, or won’t, Juice Plus helps bridge that nutritional gap between what you should eat and what you actually eat every day.
Hagel said she was introduced to Juice Plus years ago and as a busy mom, the product was a great fit for herself and her family.
“I was introduced to Juice Plus, and it just kind of made sense,” Hagel said. “Back then I was a mom with two little kids, I owned a hair salon at the time and had a really busy lifestyle. Sometimes dinner wasn’t as healthy as I’d like and if I got a fruit or vegetable on the plate and my kids actaully ate it, it was a huge bonus.”
Hagel said Juice Plus was a great way to bridge the gap and provide herself and her kids with the daily fruits and vegetables they need every day.
“You’re supposed to eat a lot of fruits and vegetables every day and we just weren’t doing that,” she said. “Juice Plus was kind of a life saver.”
Twelve years ago, Hagel decided she wanted to share the success she saw with Juice Plus, and began selling the product. Juice Plus offers capsules for adults, and chewable gummies for kids.
“We’re kid friendly and adult friendly, I always tell everybody we can meet your needs pretty much from the womb to the tomb,” Hagel said. “The products can compliment a good diet, and it can really supplement and take care of a poor diet. We’re definitely not an excuse not to eat vegetables, we’re just trying to bridge the gap for people who may not be eating enough fruits and vegetables every day.”
Hagel began working for Juice Plus because of the benefits she saw in her own family when taking the product, and also because of the integrity and values of the company itself.
“I’m really passionate about our mission statement, which is ‘Inspiring healthy living around the world.’,” Hagel said. “The company is always surprising me in awesome ways. They always have us at heart, and their customers at heart. They really want to do good customer care, which makes me really want to do good customer care. I’m just really grateful someone introduced me to Juice Plus, and I’m just paying it forward by sharing it.”
