When juicing for health, it is very important that you use only organic grown fruits and vegetables. They contain much more healthy vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. In addition, you can use up organic vegetables and fruits completely; you do not have to peel them.

And last but not least … you should not forget how important role your juice machine plays. There are many different automatic and hand operated juicers available on the market and every single type has its pros and cons.

Some juice extractors provide the healthiest foamless juices, which freshness can be preserved even for a couple of days without losing much important nutritional values. With such a juicer you can prepare a larger amount of juice at once, and store it in a fridge for a few days. You do not have to juice every single day.

You can increase nutritional value of juice by adding good health supplements. You can add for instance one tsp of proteins, flakes, almonds, or cashew. You can add also wheatgrass, algae spirulina powder (or capsules) or barley grass powder, which helps stimulate digestion and liver and kidney cleansing.
