Is juicing everyday good for you ?

Is juicing everyday good for you ?

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 more

Is camu camu juice good for me?

Is camu camu juice good for me?

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

When can babies start on juices?

When can babies start on juices?

Why give it at all: I'm not a big supporter of juices. The kids get more nutrition from the orange wedges than they get from juice. The same goes for grape, apple etc. I'm afraid many of the adult obesity problems we see are related to a preoccupation with sweet things we train babies to want in infancy. Water is a great drink, fruits are a part of a great diet. Juices are basically baby colas. ...Read more

Is juice fasting safe for one month?

Is juice fasting safe for one month?

See below: Normally, juice fasting is not for this length of time. Longer periods of fresh, organic juicing detoxification should be combined with appropriate supplements and sources of protein (such as easily digested rice protein).

How do you count sugar when juicing?

Don't understand: What are you counting? Sugar or glucose is easily measured in the blood with a meter, or are you referring to the sugar content in your food? Either way, why are you juicing?
