I recommend to start juicing by first acquiring a nice juicer ( I use a Breville ) Check online for a used on websites such as Craigslist. Once you have a juicer, it is just a matter of going to your local farmer’s market, health food store, grocery store or ideally, your own organic garden. Once you get started, get ready to experience radiant RAWsome results. One reason is based on the high levels of phytonutrients that are bioavailable through juicing.
With juicing you are dealing with the plant kingdom (flora) which provides a massive variety of fruits & vegetables with a multitude of health benefits. This means that since there is such a large variety of fruits & vegetables on this planet, your juicing adventures will be packed with lots of possibilities of an variety of combinations.
Juicing provides a nutrient-dense method of delivering phytonutrients to the human organism to allow for you to heal, cleanse & thrive. There is an array of benefits from the world of nutritional science based on the fact that juiced plants are quickly absorbed into the human body at the molecular level.
