*Note: I am sure I am missing so much information. I got these from the loads of health books I have and just outlined a few things. Imagine how one juice can be packed with so many good nutrients. Your body only takes in a certain amount and the rest it disposes of, but it doesn’t hurt to drink a juice daily. Do not give up on food though. This should not replace your food intake. You still need to get your metabolism working. I am not a doctor nor a licensed nutritionist.

Let me know what you think. . .don't be shy.
