Juice Fasting vs Eating Raw Vegetables

Juice fastingWhy is juicing better than just eating vegetables?

Juice Fasting vs Eating Raw Vegetables

The big difference between juice and a whole vegetable is the fiber. Juice contains no fiber. Therefore it is much easier for your body to absorb the nutrients. Yes, most people need more fiber, but juicing is one way to bolster your enzymes and nutrition quickly. Just make sure to eat some whole vegetables too, so you get some fiber. The exception would be during a juice fast, but this is a temporary situation, not something you would do everyday.

Hippocrates center teaches juice fasting once per week.
