To Juice or not to Juice

The Epigenetics Project Blog

Juicing is becoming more popular. Many people find it a way to eat vegetables they don’t like by adding sweet tasting fruits. It is better for you than eating fast foods or animal products. What we need to be aware of is it strips out natures fiber. Fruit has sugar, we have talked about this before but it packs the sugar in bundles of fiber. The fiber acts as time release capsules. The sugar is slowly released into our systems which is safer and healthier than an immediate sugar rush from candy bars or juices. Commercial juicing strips almost all fiber out. Home juicing leaves some but it’s not as much as eating a piece of raw fruit as nature intended it.

Juice if you must but eat some raw fruits and vegetables as well as some vegetables slightly cooked. DO NOT OVER COOKED YOUR VEGGIES!
