The Benefits of Juicing

Making fresh juice at home has many benefits (including health benefits) as it’s a great way – maybe even the easiest way – to add more nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables to your diet. Here are just some of them:

  • It helps you quickly and easily add plenty of nutrients and essential vitamins such as vitamin c, vitamin K, and b vitamins to your diet.
  • Since juicing removes the fiber from produce, it helps give your digestive system a break. (Note: to avoid food waste when making juice recipes, you can store the pulp in the freezer to make healthy savory muffins or other recipes).
  • Removing the fiber also allows you to consume a much higher quantity of vegetables than you’d normally consume.
  • Thanks to the powerful antioxidant properties of fresh fruits and vegetables, juicing helps boost your immune system, thereby contributing to a healthy lifestyle.
  • By combining vegetables with the sweetness of fruit, you can incorporate more healthy ingredients than you typically would.

Here are a few things to consider when deciding what kind of juicer to get:

  • The two most common types of juicers on the market are the centrifugal juicer and the slow juicer.
  • While centrifugal juicers are indeed a bit faster, that’s not necessarily a good thing as they process the produce in a way that yields less juice and conserves less nutrients when making juice recipes.
  • Slow juicers, also called cold press juicers, are only minimally slower than centrifugal juicers and use a much more gentle approach, resulting in a higher yield when making your homemade juice recipes.
  • The best juicer I’ve personally tried (and am currently using) is the Nama J2 Cold Press Juicer.
  • You can read my full review of the J2 juicer here.
  • To get 10% off all Nama juicers, use the discount code BOV10 at checkout.

As mentioned above, you can find more details in my in-depth review, but here’s why I recommend the Nama J2 Cold Press Juicer in a nutshell:

  • Thanks to its wide opening, you can add whole fruits and vegetables to it, thereby saving tons of time.
  • It’s easy to clean!
  • It can make juice in just a few minutes.
  • It can also make nut milks, sorbet, and fruit smoothies.
  • It’s yields more juice than many other fruit & vegetable juicers.

Juicing FAQ

Can you make a big batch of juice at once?

Technically, yes! But making too much juice at once isn’t always ideal. Fresh juice is best consumed directly after juicing. I’d recommend storing pre-made juice in an airtight container for no more than 1-3 days. You can, however, freeze juice using either large ice cube trays or BPA-free freezer safe bottles.

Should I worry about the sugar content in fruit?

It’s important to note that the sugar contained in fruit is not the same as refined white sugar and is not generally considered unhealthy. That said, juicing does remove the dietary fiber that typically allows fruit sugar to enter your blood stream more slowly.

It’s therefore important for people with blood sugar concerns and conditions like diabetes to be cautious and consult their doctor before adding a juicing routine to their lifestyle. Generally speaking, when it comes to juicing it’s always a good idea to combine your fruits with plenty of vegetables to avoid blood sugar spikes. That’s why all recipes in this article include both fruits and vegetables!

Can you make nut milks with a juicer?

You can with a cold press juicer, yes! To find out exactly how, read our article “How to Make Nut Milk with a Juicer”.

Can I just buy juice at the grocery store instead?

Most juice sold at the grocery store includes added sugar and other ingredients to extend its shelf life. That said, fresher alternatives are becoming more accessible.

If juicing at home is not an option for you, either support your local cold press juice bar for the freshest option, or make sure the juice you’re purchasing in stores is located in the refrigerated section, doesn’t include added sugar and mentions that it’s 100% juice and not made from concentrate.
