In terms of juicing and health, your best option is to do the juicing yourself using fresh ripe raw fruits and vegetables. When you hear the word juicing what comes to mind? Perhaps you think of juices in a small pouch, box, or can. Those aren't juices as Mother Nature intended them to be.
Many juices at your local supermarket are laden with artificial sweeteners, colors, preservatives, and they’re pasteurized which destroys nutrients and enzymes. Such Frankensteinian juices basically do more harm to your health than good.
5. Should I daily drink juice from the same fruits and veggies?
In short, the answer is a resounding, no. Your body needs nutrients and enzymes from a wide variety of vegetables. Try to juice with the seasons by juicing those fresh fruits and vegetables that are in season for your region, and change your juices as the produce changes. Yes, variety IS the spice of life! And of course sometimes depending where we are, we may not be able to follow this completely so we do the best we can where we are in the moment.
6. What if I don't like the taste of veggie juice?
While this isn't particularly an issue related to juicing and health, it's definitely an important issue. You can easily improve the flavor of veggie juice by adding cucumber, celery a few apples, or other fruit. Over time your taste buds will return to their natural state and you’ll gain a new appreciation for all types of veggie juice.
7. Can I use juicing as a method of fasting?
