The fresh juice frenzy is taking over fridges – According to Google; interest about juicers reached an all-time high in January 2013. Millions have embraced this food-culture phenomenon, enjoying a multitude of health benefits.

However, as this trend evolves it is important to be aware of which types of juice yield the most nutritional value. Did you know that currently 98% of the juices sold in the U.S. are pasteurized? Pasteurization uses a cooking process that kills bacteria to increase shelf life, but also destroys the natural enzymes, minerals, and essential nutrients contained in fresh juice.

Reaping the benefits of juicing through the use of fresh fruits and vegetables is more important than ever and is a tasty, easy way to meet your fruit and vegetable requirement. To improve your health – research has found that drinking fresh pressed juices can improve sleep, increase energy, decrease stress, and even lead to a longer life.
