Reasons To Juice

reasons to juiceWhat are some good reasons to juice? Without a doubt it’s good for your body. FRESH fruit and vegetable juice will give your body the antioxidants, enzymes, vitamins and minerals it needs to heal, be stronger and feel better. FRESH juice contains more available nutrients and enzymes than chewed raw food.

Reasons To Juice


Here’s a reason to juice: Phytonutrients are natural compounds found in fruits and vegetables and have been proven to be beneficial to human health and help the body fight disease. Some claim they can slow the aging process by reducing the negative effects of aging. Nothing will keep you from getting older, but FRESH fruit and vegetable juice makes it easier. Phytonutrients protect you from high blood pressure, heart disease, osteoporosis, many forms of cancer, and a whole host of other illnesses. Phytonutrients also fight free radicals. Free radicals cause deterioration of our healthy cells. When we drink fresh juices with phytonutrients they will activate a group of enzymes that will go around and clean up free radicals in the body before they can do any harm. Just like antioxidants. Actually, many phytonutrients are anti-oxidant.

Here’s another good reason to juice: Carotenoids also act like antioxidants in your body. Carotenoids provide the yellow, red and orange colors in fruits and vegetables. That’s why I always say make your meal colorful and when juicing do the same. That way you’re sure to get a balanced amount of these fabulous free radical fighters. There are many types of carotenoids: Alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, beta-cryptoxanthin, lycopene and lutein. They are good for your body!

People have lots of reasons to juice and new discoveries are being made constantly on the benefits of juicing and eating raw food. I would like to share them with you.

    Hi Rich, Great article. You’ve forgot the main reason many of us use our juicers though is because of how tasty fresh and healthy food tastes any time of day! It also makes getting these nutrients that are so good for us really easy.

  2. Jamie says:

    So many people focus on green juice when juicing and they forget that they really should be looking at juicing something from every color. Yes green vegetables are extremely healthy but so are more colorful foods such as carrots and beets.

  3. Excellent stuff – loving your blog! Juicing is also a great way for people who normally struggle to get fruit and vegetables into their diet. Looking forward to testing a couple of your recipes out – they look delicious!

    It took me a long time to consider juicing. I thought I was getting enough by just eating a salad here and there as well as having fruit. Now that I juice I can really understand the difference between thinking I’m getting enough micronutrients to knowing I’m getting enough! Not to mention it’s so much healthier than going to a smoothie place and paying up to $10. No thanks! 🙂

    Can you tell me what you feel are the absolute best fruit and vegetables are for carotenoids?

    My plan is to try to combine the two into one drink.

      Hi Cheryl,

      That’s a very good question. I have read a lot of Dr. Weil’s books and find them very useful. Carrots are one of my favorites. Carrots are a very good source of beta-carotene and so are cantaloupe (I’ve juiced cantaloupe once or twice). Once ingested, beta-carotene is either converted into vitamin A (retinol), which the body can use in a variety of ways, or it acts as an antioxidant to help protect cells from the damaging effects of harmful free radicals.

      I would do a little research and look for more fruits and vegetables that contain a combination of beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, lycopene, and lutein. I’m sure you’ll find some that appeal to you for juicing. For me I think some of the best for juicing are tomatoes, spinach, kale, watermelon, apples and broccoli.There are many recipes that include them. If you get the free juice suggestion software you can use it to find some good recipes.

      Here’s one of my favorite recipes – Sweet Watermelon, Apple & Carrot.

      Thanks for the question. I hope this helps and happy juicing!

    I’m thinking of trying juicing out. I work out a lot but don’t really diet as well as I should. I’ve been meaning to do a healthy cleansing diet and given the nutrition content of vegies and fruits, I might go for a juice diet.

    I’ll try it for 3 days first and see if I can hold out for a week.

    Thanks for the nice post.

      Hey, thanks for your comment. Juicing is a great way to get those fantastic nutrients and enzymes from fruit and vegetables. A juice fast (cleanse) might sound like you’re starving yourself, but in reality the opposite is true. You consume a lot of nutrients, calories and fresh food! You don’t go hungry. If you feel hungry, have some more.

      One of my favorite recipes to get me going in the morning is 6 carrots and a handful of parsley. It’s called “Rocket Fuel”.

      Thanks again and best of luck to you. Juice on!
