The human body needs live foods to maintain healthy body. Live food means uncooked fruits and vegetables. When we eat fresh fruits and vegetables, our bodies extract as liquid what they need from the fiber. This extracted liquid is juice which contains the same nutrient as the juice you make in your kitchen with the juicer. The good thing in drinking juice is you are eliminating a digestive process (extracting the liquid from the fiber) therefore the nutrients are release instantly in the body through the bloodstream.
By adding at least 2 glasses of fruit and vegetable juice in your diet you will surely feel great and look terrific.
Difference of Vegetable and Fruit Juice: Vegetables are the building blocks of life, responsible for strong, healthy muscles, tissues, glands, and organs.

How juicer works?The juicer separates the juice from the fiber so that what you drink is pulp-free and your body receives the maximum amount of nutrients in minutes.
What is the difference between the fresh bottled juice in the market and the juice you make using your own juicer? The juice from the juicer is different from bottled, canned, or concentrated juices sold in the supermarket.
First, it is absolutely fresh-which is important because nutrients lose a lot of value soon after juicing.
Second, juice from the juicer is not pasteurized, which means “cooked or heated” and so is bursting with the living cells which is important to good health.
Finally, fresh juice is absolutely pure, free of additives and preservatives.
