One day you hear a spokesperson of a company telling you that juicing is horrible for your health and that blending is better. The next day you hear the complete opposite.
Is there any truth in what these advertisements are claiming?
Guess what? Juicing or blending does not have to be an either/or situation. In fact, you should utilize both.
Juicing turns your raw veggies and fruits into a liquid. When you juice your veggies, you get the most important and most restorative parts of the veggie you're using (nutrients, phytochemicals, vitamins, minerals).
The difference between juicing and blending your veggies and fruits is that when you blend them, you are retaining the fiber. With both juicing and blending, the nutrients are absorbed much faster into your body as opposed to your body slowly digesting that food.
