These fresh juices are loaded with healthy nutrients and they can provide many health benefits. Take this for example: cucumber is a powerful cleanser, while parsley is extremely effective and beneficial as a mild diuretic, while watermelon’s alkaline fluid neutralizes acids and removes toxins from the kidneys. So, if you want to make the most powerful cleanser, you should make yourself a juice that contains cucumber, watermelon, parsley and ginger.
Why fresh fruit juice?
Drinking fruit and veggie drinks will avail your body with the opportunity of the feeling of satiety and by so doing your body and mind will tend to want to eat less food than usual and in the process you will have fewer calories in your system.
This is great if you intend losing weight, however if you prefer off the shelf bottled juices then you are less likely to get the nutrients you need as these commercial juices are pasteurized to ensure that they have longer shelf life and in the process they lose their nutrients and all you have is flavoring and sugar.
By preparing your veggie and fruit drinks yourself with fresh organic fruits and vegetables you ensure that you get all the nutrients and fiber your body needs and once you boost your metabolism your body will absorb food better and you will not store up fat.
