Hello Dr.Pivonka,I was wondering if you could give me your expert opinion on the benefits of fresh juiced vegetables and fruits. (Not bottled, but straight from a juicer.) Thank you so much for your time.-Maureen

Freshly made fruit and vegetable juice has the major benefit of providing most of the nutrients present in the fruit or vegetable. It can be a convenient way to increase the variety and amount of fruits and vegetables you consume. The fiber is removed during the juicing process however, and most people don’t get enough fiber, so while adding some juice can be beneficial, it is best to eat most of your fruits and vegetables in order to get all of their benefits.
