Fresh fruit and vegetable juice provide minerals, vitamins, essential fatty acids, carbohydrates, proteins and much more.
Normally fibre from fruit and vegetables passes through our system without fully releasing the nutrients to our bodies. Juicing enables us to receive the nutrients directly and in a highly concentrated form.
Thumbs down to shop bought juices
Whilst it may be convenient to pick up a cartoon of your favourite juice along with your weekly shop, pre-packaged juices are not comparable to freshly pressed juices.
The manufacturing process involved in shop bought juices reduces the amount of nutrients and thus reduces the benefits of drinking juice. More fibre is removed from commercial juices and they are pasteurized and are often blended with a number of preservatives and additives to improve shelf life.
