Juicing fresh fruits and vegetables can be an easy way to receive the vitamins and minerals found in these foods. However, by juicing fruits and vegetables you are also missing out on the fiber in the fruit or vegetable. Fiber has many health benefits in the body including lowering cholesterol levels, maintaining a healthy digestive system as well as helping satisfy your appetite at a meal or snack.
As with all foods, moderation is key. Therefore, don't use the juicing method as a replacement to eating fruits and vegetables. Use it as an additional option to getting in that important nutrition.

Please don't hesitate to ask any additional questions or contacting your local Hy-Vee dietitian for personalized advice.

Gerson recommends a single auger slow speed juicer reather than the fast centrifical type and there patients respond better with the slow  speed juicers than the centrifigal. Of course if one can afford it the NORWALK is king of the hill but who wants to pay 2500 for that machine when they can get the omega 8004 for a couple hundred. Slow juicing retains more of the beneficial enzymes than fast speed such as the 13000 rpm Breville instead of the 80 rpm Omega, or Champion.

Juicing also gives the cells better nutrition allowing the cells to dump the toxic waste and poor nutrients already in the cells, thereby creating what is called a healing crisis as the body reacts to toxins being dumped into the lymphatic sytem and the blood. It is best to use bentonite to help move those toxins from the body before they are reabsorbed.

If one decides to do a juice fast for several days I would recommend pysllium and bentonite to add fiber to the body and move toxic waste from the colon. Otherwise juicing once a day or even every other day is a good idea along with the vegetaian or fruitarian life style. Always a good idea to add some psyllium once in a while since it feeds the good bacteria in the body making supplemention of probiotics unnecessary.

Right, if you compare eating fruits to juicing it, it is better to consume it freshly so you will not miss out the fibers from it. On the other hand, instead of buying and drinking ready-made and processed juice, it is best to take it juiced from fresh fruits.

I can testify personally to juicing that it is truly effective. I lost 40 lbs and got off 3 of my meds in 3 months of juicing and eating a week balanced plant based diet. I'm not sure if I could east the shear amount of fruits and vegetables that I juice in one days juicing. I like to enjoy juicing with a mixture of fresh fruits and vegetable's through out the day. I use the omega vrt 350 and I still get plenty of fiber in my diet with a masticating juice it retains more of the fiber than a high speed juicer and there is probably 25% less food loss. If anyone is considering supplementing there diet with juicing I first off highly stress consulting a doctor concerning your new diet plan and then slowly working into your new life style change. The second thing is don't waste your money on any high speed juicer they were very costly fruits and vegetables oxidise your food and they don't juice the leafy greens as well as a masticating juicer. Any masticating juicer will work great although I've used many of these juicers I still prefer the Omega VRT 350 comes with a10 yr replacement warranty.
