Fresh fruits and vegetables are an important part of a healthy diet, but they can even be more beneficial to our well being when their enzymes, vitamins, phytochemicals and minerals are in liquid form. Green juicing makes these essential nutrients more readily available for absorption into the bloodstream, thus giving our digestive system, a much-deserved rest. There are so many reasons why you should start drinking green juice, including, clearer skin, more energy, faster weight loss, improved immune system, and improved digestive health among others.

To get the most out of your vegetables it is important to have a rock solid juice extractor. Green vegetables are a challenge to juice for centrifugal machines. A masticating machine is going to be the best juicer for the job and will allow you to squeeze a greater amount of juice out of these kinds of foods. You will not waste as much and it will wind up saving you a great amount of effort and money over time. Now let’s get to some recipes that you can have fun experimenting with when you get that shiny new juicer for your kitchen.
