How To Juice Cleanse: The Importance of Using Vegetables When Juicing

There are immense benefits from going on a juice cleanse, such as detoxing and hydrating the body, improving digestion, and reducing inflammation. With this being said, it is crucial to choose juice products that are high in the nutrients you need to receive these benefits. Here at Living Juice, we believe in incorporating vegetables into our juices. In this blog post, we will share with you the role vegetables play in an effective juice cleanse.

Vegetables Are Lower In Calories And Sugar Than Fruits

According to the U.S. Department Of Agriculture, the average eight-fluid-ounce vegetable juice contains 72 calories, whereas the average eight-fluid-ounce fruit juice contains 136 calories. Vegetable juices are lower in calories than fruit juices and, therefore, are beneficial for those looking to lose weight by going on a juice cleanse.

Additionally, many fruits have a high sugar content. Drinking fruit juices alone during a cleanse can lead to a spike in blood sugar. Adding vegetables can reduce the sugar content and help keep your body feeling good.

Combining Fruits And Vegetables Gives The Body Nutrients

Fruits and vegetables contain many vitamins and nutrients. However, each type of fruit and vegetable contains its own unique combination of nutrients and, therefore, performs different functions for the body. Consuming a variety of fruits and vegetables is the best way to give your body what it needs to be healthy and strong. 

While fruits are generally filled with antioxidants, working to cleanse the body and strengthen the immune system, vegetables are made up of many vitamins and minerals. Vegetables prevent many health conditions, lower blood pressure, and improve your gut health.
