Starting your day off with a plethora of vitamins and minerals from your favorite vegetables and fruits can maximize your immune system, build stronger bones, increase metabolism, and lose weight and create better skin. You can increase your daily intake of vitamins and minerals with just one vegetable/ fruit juice a day and the results will quite literally blow your mind.

I believe from a promotional and industry point of view, to promote more people to consume more vegetables and fruits, is to show them how much healthier a person can be by eating cleaner and purer foods is by substituting a meal with a nutritious packed super juice.

So if you are looking to maximize your health, lose a little bit of weight and provide your body with all the essential nutrients and minerals, then give juicing a try.

Is juicing the answer for getting produce in the diet? It certainly is a big trend. As a source on this article from The Globe and Mail observes "even the most disciplined, health-conscious person has trouble eating the recommended five to ten servings a day.

Yes, the hyper competitive juicing scene in New York City is jaw-dropping for a Midwestern who is pleased enough with a banana-berry smoothie from McDonald's.

But I may just try, as Max suggests, to give juicing a try.

Well, I think will be applicable for kids. We know kids as groups of non-fruit and vegetable lovers. So, extracting juice can be a good idea.
