Over the last couple of years, juicing has become quite popular. In fact, people start juicing for one reason and continue for another. There are so many benefits to juicing; it’s a wonder that everyone isn’t doing it.
I know juicing got me crazy! I have tried several crazy combinations, some are tastier than others but what’s great is almost every vegetable and fruit that can be eaten raw can be juiced. So this allows you to experiment and come up with some very unique recipes. Also each glass packs a punch, you get an amazing boost of nutrients which are needed in your daily diet.
Although juicing has many benefits, I have a few that are on the top of my list.
Here are 5 Reasons Why You Should Be Juicing:
1. Weight Loss: replacing just one meal a day with an 8oz glass of vegetable/fruit juice gives you more valuable nutrients at a lower caloric intake.
2. Boosts your energy: because you are getting a high level of vitamins and nutrients you feel more energetic.
3. Skin Glows, hair and nails tend to grow faster: making you look younger and more vibrant.
4. Stronger Immune system: with increased vitamins and nutrients body is more equipped to fight off nasty colds and viruses.
5. Increased Sexual appetite: certain ingredients added to your juice act as aphrodisiacs and increase your libido.
Fat Burner Juice Recipe (drink twice a day as meal replacement)
Handful of Spinach or Kale
¼ cup of water
1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon of Agave
Libido Stimulator Juice Recipe (drink a couple of hours before sexual encounter)
2 Celery Sticks
1 cup Pineapple (without skin)
add in a couple of these ingredients which are sexual stimulants nutmeg, ginseng, figs, ginger, cloves, sweet basil, cayenne pepper
If you are struggling with weight loss, health issues or just want to feel more energetic, then juicing may be just the trick for you. The nutrients you get from freshly juiced vegetables and fruits aren’t just good for you they may help you enjoy life more too.

I have been wanting to get a juicer for a while now. Great article.
Great article! I started juicing just because I love apples but can’t eat the skin anymore. Experimenting with fruits and veggies is fun.

I have never tried juicing, but am on a journey to a healthier me and may try it. Anyone know of a greta juicer?
I have a juicer but haven’t used it yet. I am ready to get started and reap the benefits. I need to get started.
Our family has been juicing for approx 3 years now and really enjoy it. I also find its a great way to start your day. We use the nutribullet ourselves and have liked the results. Other people use straight juicing machines leaving the pulp behind and that’s ok too.
I will have to try adding Agave to the mix to see how it tastes.
