For additional information  Click Here



What is Juicing?

Juicing is the process where nutrients such as minerals, vitamins and natural liquids, are extracted from raw veggies and fruits. Through the process of juicing any solid matter from the veggies and fruits is stripped away, leaving behind only a liquid full of nutrients. This juice is not only hydrating, but it is loaded with phytonutrients, anti-inflammatory compounds, antioxidants, minerals and vitamins. Consuming this juice can provide quick and long lasting energy from all natural raw vegetables and fruits.

You can juice fast for detox, cleansing and weight loss or you can just incorporate into your daily diet. Juicing has become very popular among health conscious people in the last few years. All you need in order to start this trendy lifestyle is to choose a good appliance from the various juicers on the market. You can also get a juicing cookbook with various juicing recipes or just look for recipes online.

There are more juicing methods, varying from using motor-driven juicers to simply squeezing fruit by hand. The most used juicer types are:

  • Cold-press juicers: they press and crush veggies and fruits slowly in order to produce more juice. In order to avoid breakdown of beneficial nutrients and enzymes, they do not produce heat.
  • Centrifugal juicers: through a high-speed spinning movement they grind veggies and fruits into pulp.

Is Juicing Good or Bad for You?

Raw, fresh fruit and vegetables are great for your health. Juicing fresh raw veggies and fruits allows you to consume a larger quantity of all natural nutrients coming from vegetables and fruits. However, as everything in life, juicing has also its own downsides.

By juicing the fruits and veggies, the fiber is left out. Fresh juice’s lack of fiber can make it easy for someone to consume too much sugar. Juicing also removes some of the fruit’s skin that contains helpful nutrients and antioxidants such as flavonoids and carotenoids.

In general, there are two main purposes of juicing:

  • To supplement a normal diet
