High vitamin C: Hi! Camu Camu has very high levels of vitamin C. We know that vitamin C is helpful, but 1) there is no evidence that vitamin C from Camu Camu would be any better for us than that from other supplements; 2) the amount of vitamin C in a given amount of Camu Camu is not reported or regulated, so there's going to be a lot of variation in your actual dose. I can't recommend it. ...Read more
Not realy: Vegetable juice can be an easy way to increase the amount of vegetables in your diet, but you shouldn't routinely use it to replace whole vegetables.

Fiber: Some juicing machines remove all the fiber from the veggies & fruit, and this is probably not as good for you as having some left in. This is because juice by itself can make your blood sugar rise rapidly, causing a spike in Insulin also. The fiber slows this sugar spike down. If Insulin resistance is a problem for you at all, you'd need to consider this in how you prepare your juice. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Losing weight: To lose weight, get ur resting metabolism rate done(weight loss centers do this). This determines the total number of calories you need to lose 1-2lbs/week.

Depends: I advocate for juicing to help patients with energy and getting their 7-9 servings of fruits/veggies. I don't think you necessarily have to go on a juice cleanse unless an integrative physician recommends it. I think its better to eat natural, try elimination of foods that don't agree with you and a green drink or two daily to replenish (kale, spinach, cucumbers, apple, banana, ginger/lemon). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
