Course overview

Juicing – extracting the juice from fruits and vegetables – not only retains, but concentrates all the vitamins, minerals and enzymes that are naturally present. It provides them in their living, organic, balanced form. Juiced foods require little or no digestion, so the nutrients are absorbed quickly into the bloodstream, with no work of digestion. Little energy is needed for waste processing, so the body is able to divert energy into tissue repair and renewal. This is why juiced foods help in the fight against a wide range of ailments and diseases. Juices could be described as the perfect ‘fast food’ for today’s lifestyle.
