    Most of does fruit can’t be found in nigeria

    • admin May 6, 2014, 2:22 pm

      Hello, Esperanza!
      I’ve never been in Nigeria but what I checked there are a lot of fruits you can use for juices. Like pineapple, watermelon, apple, mango, banana, papaya, annona, orange, coconut, etc. Such delicious juices you can do with these! Remember, you can combine these with vegetables too. Maybe I didn’t give many recipes in my site yet but I’ll consider it. Meantime you can try different variations. Thanks.

    Are the vegetables cooked or raw, ie the beets, sweet potato erc. Thanks

    • admin June 30, 2014, 1:29 pm

      Hi, Carter!
      Thank you for your interest! You actually bring up a very valuable point. Yes, sure, all vegetables here (beets, sweet potatos, etc) are raw and not cooked in these specific recipes. Mostly we use raw vegetables in juicing because they have much more vitamins and minerals than after heat processing. But, of course, there are vegetables that should not be eaten raw like cruciferous vegetables (arugula, broccoli, kale, cauliflower, cabbage, turnip, collard greens, bok choy, brussels sprouts, radish, rutabaga, and watercress). These should be cooked or as minimum deeped into some hot water to blanch before eating or juicing. They contain chemicals that block the production of thyroid hormone in your body. As you may ask, many of these vegetables are commonly included in salads and juices in raw form. An occasional arugula salad or cup of coleslaw is not going to do harm to most folks, but it would be wise not to make a habit of eating or drinking any of these vegetables in raw form. Blanching won’t clean all the pecticides out because they go deep inside the vegetables but it will cleanse the surface along with cleaning inside the florets. For more information you can read here.

        How to drink them all (7 recipes)?are they should drink 1 by 1 each day ,week or what..thanks

        • Julia March 15, 2016, 3:54 pm

          Hi Siaoyang!

          We don’t recommend drinking all 7 drinks at once.

          We recommend spacing them one per day. This way, you won’t overwhelm your system.

          We also recommend rotating through the different drinks. Each of them contains many different nutrients and you want as many various nutrients as possible. The more varied the nutrition, the healthier the person.

          Also, rotating through will allow your body the chance to clear out any built up over abundance. For example, too much carrot will cause an orange tinge to the skin. By rotating through the drinks, your body has the chance to clear any excesses.

          Finally, we want you to take it slow while going through a detox. It can be dangerous to detox too fast. Going slow and using one drink per day allows you to clear out without becoming sick.

    Hi, you mean coconut water or coconut milk??

    • admin August 28, 2014, 10:10 am

      Hi Eunice!
      You are right, I have mistakenly mentioned coconut milk and coconut water in the same recipe referring to the same product. I initially had coconut water in mind. Coconut milk is actually a mix of coconut water with coconut meat. It is also reach in vitamins and minerals but has more calories in it. For the goal of detoxification I believe it is better to stick with coconut water. However this recipe with coconut milk can also produce a very tasty result.

    Hi there,
    For how many time I should drink the detox juice in a single day and how many days?

    • admin October 15, 2014, 3:23 pm

      Hi, ​Nawaf!
      If you decide to go on a juice detox fast, then it is important to make sure you drink enough liquids during the day. Approximately 1 to 3 liters of juice each day, that is besides other liquids ( like water or tea). You should not force it though, drink only as much juice as you feel your body needs. It is also important to drink different juices during the day to ensure you get all the required nutrients into your system. You can browse our website for different juice recipes.
      ​Some people go on short juice fasts, that last 1 to 4 days, every once in a while. Others however are able to fast for longer than a week. If it is your first attempt at juice fasting I would recommend to start with a 1 day juicing fast.
      ​For beginners, going straight to juicing fast might be too difficult. Incorporating detox juices with normal food might be a better idea. Drinking fresh detox juice for breakfast is a detox solution many individuals made part of their everyday diet.

    Are all these juices equipped for detoxing the body? This will be my first doing one of these and I am just wondering any tips or ideas you can give me!! Thanks so much 🙂

    • Dave October 15, 2014, 4:46 pm

      Terri Hi,

      Since it is your first try at juice fasting, I would recommend you start with a short fast period. I would start with 1 day juicing fast and see how it goes. If you feel well after it, then perhaps you can fast for one more day. Make sure you drink enough liquids during the fast. You should drink different fresh juices during your fast to make sure you get all the required vitamins and minerals. You can use the recipes on this post or browse our website for a bigger variety of juicing recipes.

  • azzurra November 9, 2014, 4:10 am

    Is it necessary for you to fast for the drinks to have effect?

    • Dave November 9, 2014, 8:58 am

      Azzurra Hi,
      Juice fast is a method of cleaning your body from toxins. Drinking fresh juices while fasting helps supplying healthy nutrients to your body. By drinking fresh juices you provide your body with the vitamins and minerals in the amounts it is hard to get any other way. Juice fast is not the only way to enjoy the benefits of juicing. Drinking fresh juice every morning also does great to your health and helps with the detox process.

    My combination of apples ,berry ,pineapple ,orange ,peach ,grape and mix with milk
    and same with water is this a good combination or what is good for me I mention
    that I’m in a good health . Thank you Alex

    • Dave July 22, 2015, 5:26 pm

      Alex Hi,

      Thank you for your question. I am happy to hear you are in good shape. Juicing on daily basis will only contribute to your overall health. I would recommend mixing the fruits with vegetables to lower the sugar levels and get more health benefits out of your juice. I also believe that drinking the juice as is, without mixing it with milk is the best way to go.

      As far for the fruits you are using I believe those offer tremendous health benefits and are great for juicing. Grapes are great antioxidants – help protecting the brain from aging and lower the risks of developing heart problems. Apples are great for heart health, brain health and digestion. Pineapples strengthen the bones; reduce the risks of high blood pressure, great for digestion, great for the skin and our immune system. Oranges are flooded with vitamin C which works as an antioxidant. Oranges protect our body from diseases, inflammation and early aging. There are researches showing that orange juice can improve memory as well. Peach juice is good for kidneys, eyes, digestion and cardiovascular health. Berries have enormous amount of health benefits. Those might prevent Parkinson’s disease, help with diabetes and more. What type of berries you are using? Blackberry juice can reduce goat problems. Cranberries fight urine infections. Maintaining mental sharpness is only one of the many benefits of blueberries.

      Good and simple to juice veggies I would suggest you incorporate into your juices are:

      Beets – are good for digestion, reduce blood pressure, good for the skin, cure inflammation , help with constipation and have many more health benefits you can read about here.

      Celery is probably one of the most nutritious vegetables. It has lots of anti cancer properties, lowers bad cholesterol, helps digestion and more ( all about the benefits of juicing celery here)

      Off course there are many other veggies that are great and healthy: carrots, broccoli, kale and more.
      Her are some combinations using the ingredients above I would suggest you try:

      Recipe 1:
      1 cup of water, strawberries and blueberries (1/2 cup each), 1/2 beet and one leaf of kale.

      Recipe 2:
      2 apples and 8 celery stalks + a little bit of cinnamon

      If you for some reason prefer to stick with fruits only then proven combinations are:

      Recipe 1:
      2 apples + 2 cups of blueberries

      Recipe 2:
      1 pear, 1 cup of blackberries, 1/4 pineapple + peppermint leaves.

      Hopefully, this answer helped you in some way. Wishing you good health and delicious juicing.

    Willa kale , spinach,mango and pineapple juice help me finish the “love handles” and flatten my tummy? 2 are the kales to be raw or cooked?

    • Julia February 10, 2016, 2:38 pm

      Hi Lucy.

      I’m glad you asked.

      Many people are looking for that 1 or 2 foods or supplements that will magically take away the fat. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work like that.

      This juice is healthy, and will provide you with many nutrients. It can replace unhealthy snacks. As part of a diet that focuses on vegetables and healthy meats, eliminating junk food and processed foods, you will see a reduction in your love handles.

      You also have to balance the sugars. Mango and pineapple are packed with nutrition, but also with sugar. You should have no more than 8oz of the juice per day. Otherwise, you’ll be taking in too many carbs, which could cause you to gain weight. This is especially true if you are eating breads and pastas, both of which are very unhealthy foods.

      We recommend sticking to 1 serving of this juice for a snack. Then, make the rest of your meals 100% vegetables and meats. Add in some exercise and you’ll see your tummy flatten quite quickly and beautiful muscle starts to form up.

      As for the raw vs cooked, in these types of juices, raw is better for taste. There isn’t much of a difference nutritionally, but cooked spinach and kale tend to give a rotten, sulfur taste when cooked, then added to a juice.

      Hope this helps.
