Good to Know Info
Studies suggest that men and women who consume eight or more servings of fruits and vegetables daily have a 20% lower risk of coronary heart disease than those who have less than 3 servings. Individuals who consume just one additional fruit or veggie serving per day reduce their total risk of heart disease by 4%.
Studies also suggest that consumption of cruciferous produce may reduce breast cancer risk by approx. 45 % in women.
Consuming 8 or more servings of fresh produce can be challenging for many people. However, once a juicer enters the equation; it then become very easy!

Another benefit to juicing: If you have children and are struggling to get them to eat more fruits and veggies, juicing is the answer!
If you use apples and carrots as a base, the juice will be sweet enough to disguise almost anything else, thus you can add broccoli, your children will not notice but will benefit from the added broccoli.
