7 Healthy Juice Recipes That Are Downright Delicious

Juicing is all the rage these days, and for good reason.

For those of us that would rather not eat 3 – 4 servings of fruits and veggies every day, juicing is a great way to provide our bodies with the vitamins and minerals needed to maintain optimal health and performance. You can spend money on a multivitamin or you can spend money juicing, and many people prefer the all-natural choice.

That said, I don’t recommend a 100% juice diet for weight loss or “cleansing” purposes (in my experience, 99% of the time someone says they’re “cleansing,” they’re just trying to lose weight). Severe calorie restriction is not only unsustainable, it’s quite unhealthy.

Instead, you can make juicing as part of a healthy weight loss diet by keeping track of the calories and going easy on the fruit, as it contains quite a bit of carbohydrates (which aren’t a problem in and of themselves, but if you drink too many calories, you’re going to find it very hard to lose weight).

That’s why you’ll find the nutrition facts for the healthy juice recipes in this article, and if you want to try your own concoctions, use this online juice nutrition calculator to determine the calories.

While we’re talking fruit, it’s also worth discussing the fructose issue, as many “experts” claim that it makes fruit consumption unhealthy.  The reality is while eating too much fructose is harmful to your health, the small amounts found in fruit as well as the fiber, which changes how your body absorbs the sugars, makes it quite hard to eat enough to be an issue.

If you eat 30 bananas a day, your fructose intake is too high and you should cut back. But if you’re a normal person and you eat a few pieces of fruit every day, you’re totally fine. And that applies to juicing as well: juicing 20 apples per day is a bad idea, but juicing a couple is totally fine. Juicing also removes the fiber from the fruit, so you lose the absorption benefits (and the many other benefits of dietary fiber).

And last but not least, if you’re new to juicing and wondering which juicer to buy, I highly recommend the Breville JE98XL. I’ve tried several other juicers 2 to 3 times as expensive and don’t see any reason to choose them over the Breville JE98XL:

  • It’s powerful, which means you don’t have to wrestle your material into it and it spits out a lot of juice.
  • It’s fast, which means no waiting 15 to 20 minutes for your cheaper juicer to chew through everything. This thing rips through anything you throw at it in a minute or two.
  • It’s easy to set up, operate, and break down and clean.

Clinically Effective Doses

Great ingredients aren't enough to make a great product—you also need correct doses.

That’s why we use the exact doses of every ingredient that have safely produced the desired benefits in peer-reviewed studies.

Where your supplements are made matters, because rules and regulations regarding quality and purity differ from country to country.

And if you want to ensure the supplements you’re swallowing every day are safe and effective, you want products produced in the USA.

Did you know that studies have shown that many supplements contain dangerously high levels of toxins like lead, arsenic, and cadmium?

Not ours.

Every ingredient of every supplement we produce is tested for heavy metals, microbes, allergens, and other contaminants to ensure they meet the strict purity standards set by the FDA.

Naturally Sweetened & Flavored

While artificial sweeteners may not be as dangerous as some people claim, studies suggest that regular consumption of these chemicals may indeed be harmful to our health and that more research is needed.

That’s why all of our supplements are naturally sweetened and flavored and contain no artificial food dyes, fillers, or other unnecessary junk.

Science-Backed Ingredients & Doses

Unlike some supplement companies, we don’t sell dubious white labeled or off-the-shelf formulations.
