Guest Bio: Ray Doustdar
Ray Ray Doustdar is the CEO of BUICED Inc., and the creator of the all new BUICED Liquid Multivitamin, as well as the curator of Everyday Juicer, a website dedicated to helping people add fresh vegetable juicing to their daily lifestyle.

Through fresh vegetable juicing, Ray was able to bring down his cholesterol from 234 to 168 (down 28%) by incorporating juicing into his daily lifestyle.

During this time, he discovered that although the leafy greens are packed with phyto-nutrients, they lack many essential vitamins and minerals.

He tried taking vitamins in pill form after each juice, but they upset his stomach. Then Ray learned liquid vitamins are more readily available for easy absorption, so he decided to solve his own problem and created BUICED to "boost his juice."
Can Juicing Keep You Off Medications?
After being a huge fan of a purely animal-based lifestyle for many years, Ray Doustdar got a huge wake-up call. A trip to his primary care doctor revealed some elevated lab results, and a prescription for the cholesterol-lowering drug, Lipitor, followed.

It was a moment Ray would not soon forget. He had a feeling of desperation, yet also a feeling of inspiration. Eventually he changed his life for the better.

And you can too.

Join Ray and Dr. Holly in this segment of The Dr. Holly Lucille Show, as he shares his journey through both of these paradigms and how he became an "Every Day Juicer."
