Hi there and welcome to the Forum

To answer your question simply, there are no trials which suggest that this product helps people with Lupus. Juice Plus is a multi level marketing product with many dubious claims. Just google it and there is plenty of info online. Here's just one link

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juice_Plus

Of the published peer-reviewed studies on Juice Plus products, seven were funded and/or authored by the manufacturer, Natural Alternatives International (NAI) six were funded by the main distributor, NSA and two were funded by individual Juice Plus distributors. Only one was conducted independently and that had nothing to do with the benefits to people with Lupus or indeed any other autoimmune disease.

I would suggest that you firmly tell your friend that before you part with your hard earned cash, you would like to see proper evidence of how it benefits people with Lupus. There are far too many claims out there for a variety of different products which are said to benefit this and that illness. Its the lowest of the low in my opinion - preying on vulnerable and unwell people who are desperate to feel better.

Save your money and eat well.

Take care
