Pros & Cons of Juicing

Learn the pros and cons of juicing from nutrition expert Alex Jamieson in this Howcast video.


There are some pros and cons to juicing. Some of the pros are that juicing floods your body with great nutrition in a really easy way. You are drinking your nutrients. Your body doesn't have to work hard to get the nutrients out of the fruits and vegetables. So you can actually consume the benefits of more vegetables throughout the day, without having to sit, and eat, and chew, and digest. So people use juicing as a way to fast.

They'll just consume vegetable and fruit juices for several days, up to a couple of weeks, as a way to clean their body, and as a way to get tons of nutrients into their body at the same time. So one of the benefits of juicing is also one of the cons of juicing. One of the benefits of juicing is that you're taking in a lot of nutrients at once, without your digestive system having to do a lot work. But at the same time, you're missing out on all the fiber that's contained in all those fruits and vegetables.

So if you want the benefits from the fiber in the vegetables, as well as the nutrients in the vegetables, try adding some green smoothies to your diet, in addition to the fresh juices. So use a nice green smoothie in the morning that has fruits, as well as some green, leafy vegetables like kale, or collards, or bok choy. Some of the cons of juicing are that it can be very expensive to do this on your own, or to go to a juice bar on a regular basis.

And it's really important to remember when you're juicing fruits and vegetables that you are using organic produce. You want to avoid the highly concentrated pesticides that might be present on the produce if you're not using organics.
