Jumpstart Your Health Journey with This Green Juice

Posted By ,January 16, 2018

Juicing has become widely popular over the past few years and the health trend continues to grow. Not only does juicing fresh fruits and vegetables provide your body with vitamins and nutrients, but it’s also a great way to jumpstart your wellness journey to better health.

So what is juicing? Juicing is the process of extracting the juice from whole fruits and vegetables using any number of juicers on the market. Benefits of juicing include, better digestion, glowing skin, increase in energy, reduce inflammation, better sleep, mental clarity, and weight loss. Although juicing helps with weight loss it should never be your sole regimen for losing weight.

What type of juicer do I use? There are two main juicers on the market; the centrifugal and the masticating juicer, also known as a slow juicer. Many start out with centrifugal juicers like the Breville because it is less expensive than slow juicers like the Hurom that can start at $300.

In my own experience with juicing, I started with a Jack LaLanne, and gradually transitioned from two Breville series juicers to now using a Hurom HH Elite Slow Juicer. I highly recommend using a Breville until you become a more experienced juicer to get more familiar how to juice, what to juice, and the overall patience of juicing.

What is this green juice? Although there are many variations of juice, the Mean Green has been the go-to for many who are beginners to the juicing lifestyle, as well as those who are more advanced. The Mean Green was made popular by Joe Cross from Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, and has simple ingredients that provide the body with great benefits.
