Everyone has heard of juicing diets and cleanse fads, but what are the health benefits of freshly squeezed juice?
Fresh-Squeezed Juice Basics
The shelf life of natural juice varies between 2-3 days when refrigerated from the moment it is squeezed. However, the presence of citrus (orange or lime) will help keep it longer. Don’t be afraid of the sugar found in fruits and vegetables. Fructose is a natural sugar that provides energy and is more digestible than other processed sugars.
If juice isn’t your thing, smoothies are another flavorful option. When blending fruits and vegetables you retain all their fiber for healthy digestion. Some ingredients to consider are kale, apples, spinach, blueberries, celery, pears and oranges.
