Vegetable Juicing: Building Excellent Health

Dr. Ben Kim urges one and all to experience vegetable juicing. He says it's a great way to nourish your body with the nutrients you need for excellent health.

Juice from green vegetables will not cause your blood sugar and insulin levels to spike as fruit or vegetables of other colors will. If you major on the green vegetables you can safely incorporate the fruit and other vegetables as well.

"Clearly, organic vegetables are better than non-organic vegetables. But my experiences have led me to believe that the health benefits of drinking juices made with well washed, non-organic vegetables far outweigh not juicing at all. If you are only able to juice non-organic vegetables due to financial or other life circumstances, it’s still well worth your while to do so."

If you're new to the art of juicing, don't be intimidated. Simply cut the vegetables into small enough pieces to go into the juicer, feed them in to the machine and watch the juice stream out. Then sit back and relax, and drink to your health.

I simply love juicing! Nothing makes me feel as good as knowing early on in the day that I have had all my green stuff, plus carrots, celery, cucumber, tomato, etc. in a glass! There simply isn't an easier, more convenient way of getting that major nutrient boost daily!
