The benefits of fruit juice is not a new concept for us. Yet, even if we've certainly tasted a fresh orange juice, for instance, there are much more recipes, richer in vitamins, which anyone can try at home, like, for instance, a papaya juice, with mango, and carrots.
Apart from its nutritive qualities, the fruit juice mixes are also delicious, and anyone can come up with a brand new recipe.

How Do Juices Help Us?

When we cook our food, the micro-nutrients found in the fresh products are being destroyed. If our diet is rich in organic fruits and vegetables, and we consume daily the right quantity of micro-nutrients, we will have a healthier, happier and more productive life. And we'll reduce the risk of having all sorts of illnesses.
The human body ideally needs no less than 1 kilogram of fruit/vegetables for each 50 weight kilos. The problem is, it is very difficult to eat so much fruit and many fresh veggies. Also, if we eat out of the same fruit/veggie, we won't get the necessary mix of vitamins and nutrients, and we'll also increase the risk of becoming allergic to that very product.
Another benefit of fresh juices it is that they make food easier to digest, so as the nutrients can be better and easier assimilated and used by the organism.
The juices are to be drunk in their fresh state, so they should be prepared only in moderate quantities. If you keep them in the fridge, they are most likely to lose their healthy properties.
At the same time, the fruit and vegetable juices should be consumed at the room's temperature. And we should under no circumstance drink any juice older than 24 hours, because in that case its nutritive value is certainly lost.

Let's see some of the juices and their benefits to our health.
● Beet juice for instance contains a lot of sugar, and plenty of vitamins: С, Р, В1, В2, РР. It also has a lot of potassium, iron, and manganese salts. It is great for reducing stress, overweight, and insomnia.
Unfortunately, fresh beet juice also contains harmful compounds, which are destroyed in contact with air. So before drinking you need to keep it in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours in an open dish. Also, some people cannot tolerate beet juice, and have bad reactions to it, like vomiting, dizziness, heartthrobs, or states of general weakness.
