Fruits and Vegetable Juices

Natural remedial juices from fruits and vegetables for detoxing, tiredness, digestive, skin, etc. are suggested. Mostly all disorders respond well to appropriate vegetable and fruit juices.

Freshly made juices are a very good source of vitamins and minerals. Vitamins activate enzymes which act as catalysts in hundreds of thousands of chemical reactions that take place throughout our body.

Enzymes produce energy and are essential for digesting, absorbing and converting food into body tissue. Without vitamins, enzymes could not carry out their work, and we could not live.

Our body can absorb more vitamins and minerals if we drink fresh juices than if we eat the fruits and vegetables whole. By blending fruits and vegetables to make juices and smoothies, we break down the fibers to release the trapped nutrients. Natural Healing Foods

Juicing Tips

  • Wash the fruits and vegetables thoroughly before juicing. Remove damaged portions, if any.
  • Use organic produce where possible.
  • Juice with stems and leaves. Remove the stems and leaves of carrots, as they are toxic. The leaves of celery are bitter so you may remove them.
  • You may use seeds of lemon, lime, oranges, etc. Do not use apple seeds, as they are toxic.
  • Do not use the skins of orange and grapefruits, as they are toxic. Do not throw away the white pithy part as they are a source of vitamin C and bioflvonoids.
  • You can garnish the juices with black pepper, salt, lemon juice, parsley, cilantro (coriander), cinnamon, etc.
