Drinking juices rich in fiber can ward off constipation. The juice of vegetables and fruits will also help cleanse your digestive system. It's hard to feel your best if you battle chronic constipation, which is just one more reason why juicing is amazing.

Do not delay in serving your juice, after it has been prepared. It has a much better taste the quicker it is served after making it.

If you have specific nutritional requirements, it is in your best interest to explore different varieties of fruit that you may not ordinarily eat. This will provide your body with nutrients that you might have been missing out on otherwise. You can cover up flavors that you may not really like with apple or lemon juices.

Let color guide you. As well as giving brilliant colors, the many varied vegetables, as well as fruits, are stocked with tons of vitamins and nutrients. Using a wide variety of colors will give you a full range of nutrients and many exciting tastes.

Juicing your fruits and vegetables will provide your body with enzymes that make digestion easier, meaning you're far less likely to face indigestion. If you get heartburn, or have stomach upset when you eat certain vegetables like broccoli, try juicing and you may find you no longer have any issues!

If you're juicing for reasons related to your health, try using dark green vegetables as the main ingredient for your juice. Try blending around 50-75% dark leafy greens like mustard greens or chard with something a little brighter in flavor. Fill the rest with your choice of fruits to give it a great taste.
