I had a juicer back in the 80s, when I embarked on a health regimen. I don't do it any longer, as i realized that you need the fibrous part of the vegetable/fruits in order to maximize the health benefit. Juicing is fine, but eating the fruit/vegetable is better for you.
Think of it this way: Say you juiced five apples and drank the liquid. You now get most of all the sugar five apples contain without most of the fiber. No way you'd ever eat five apples at once. This is one of the reasons nutritionists don't recommend giving kids so much juice, as it contributes greatly to weight gain. It's even worse for adults.
Again, enjoy juicing. But do it in moderation.
Absolutely true. They are an anti inflammatory as well. This helps with blood pressure and flow. No ED issues and no freggin pill everyday. Most are also good slow burning carbs so no real glycemic effect. Just don't smother in butter and salt
