Juicing Facts

Packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, juices are renowned as health-boosting beverages. Along with providing a concentrated source of nutrition, juicing is a convenient way to infuse your diet with healthy plant foods.

Be mindful however that raw fruit juice has a high glycemic index, which means the body processes the carbohydrates quickly. Because of the absence of fiber, the body absorbs the sugar faster than when you eat vegetables or fruits whole. This can lead to a rapid spike in blood sugar, which could result in complications particularly for patients suffering from diabetes and other blood glucose disorders.

You Still Need Fat and Protein. This is not a knock on juicing, unless you’re using it to replace meals. Vegetables are high in some nutrients, but you still need to eat sufficient fat and protein, as well as the vitamins and minerals that are usually found with fat and protein.
