What are the Best Fruits and Vegetables for Juicing

Most all fruits and vegetables are great for juicing and will provide different health benefits. Typically you want to use more vegetables in your juicing efforts and only use enough fruit to make your juice palatable. Fruits typically contain a lot of sugar which is why we want to control our intake of fruit juices.

If you are juicing to prevent or help with any specific illness or disease then it is best to get a good understanding of what fruits and vegetables will be the most beneficial for your particular issue. Some fruits and vegetables will help more with high blood pressure while others may be better for controlling diabetes. It is up to you to do a little research and understand your juicing goals.
