Beginner’s Guide to Juicing: Benefits of Fresh Juice

Fresh fruit and vegetable juicing is certainly not a new idea for the raw foods community, however it is growing in popularity as a mainstream method for weight loss and detoxification.

Unlike conventional juices that are often processed with a lot of added sugar, fresh juicing involves creating nutrient-rich juices out of your favorite fruits and vegetables.

“Before you begin any juice regiment, it’s important to understand why juice is  important for your health,” said Cherie Calbom, MS, author of The Juice Lady’s Turbo Diet and Juicing for Life.  “When you understand the many health benefits of fresh juice, you’ll be much more inclined to take the time to make fresh juice.”

Fruits and vegetables are loaded with healing properties, so juicing is a great way to get a boost of nutrition without using vitamins or other supplements.

While it is important to contact your doctor or nutrition counselor before making any major dietary changes, we tracked down some of the health benefits from fresh juice.

Concentrated nutrients. Fresh juice is like a vitamin-mineral cocktail,” said Calbom. “It’s loaded with vitamins, minerals, enzymes and nutrients.”  When you consume fresh juice, you only receive the “good stuff” and nutrients aren’t diluted by other ingredients. This lets the body absorb them quickly.

Fresh juice is energizing. “When we cook the plants, even lightly steaming vegetables, we lose nutrients,” said Calbon. “But we need plenty of them for good cellular health. They help the cells in our bodies communicate more effectively.”

Fresh juice is good for the digestive system. “Even people with digestive problems notice that their health greatly improves when they begin drinking fresh vegetable juices,” sais Calbom. “That’s because the juicer has done the work for you and your body can take up the nutrients quickly and easily.”

In reality it is better to eat a better piece of fruit so you get the fiber with it.
Juice is high in natural sugars, so you don't want to drink too much or you'll be taking in more calories than you realize.
Some vegetables NEED to be cooked for the human body to absorb the nutrients, ie. potatoes, carrots and broccoli.
