Juicing and Cleansing Your Body

Today I am going to talk about juicing and cleansing your body. It is very good to do a cleanse every several months or at least once per year and to be juicing vegetables on a regular basis. I am a huge fan of juicing because it can lead to great health benefits, including boosting energy, promoting detoxification of heavy metals, environmental pollutants, and bad bacteria. Juicing also promotes healing in the body and allows the digestive tract a chance to rest. In this video I walk you through the benefits of cleansing and detoxing your body by juicing.

Types of Juicers:
-A lot of people have asked what brand of juicer I recommend, and really I think you get what you pay for. You can expect to pay around $200 for a good juicer, and obviously you can spend a lot more than that, too.
-The juicer I use is a Breville, and it’s worked great for me and comes in just under $200 at Amazon: http://amzn.to/Kg9J0g

Vegetables to Juice:
-All vegetables are great for juicing. Here are my top favorite, nutrient-dense vegetables for juicing:
1. Carrots: packed with the antioxidant beta-carotene, very good for eye and skin health
2. Cucumbers: very high in silica, a nutrient that is very good for skin and eye health
3. Celery: hydrating, packed with electrolytes and organically-bound sodium
4. Bell Peppers: packed with antioxidants that are very good for skin, hair, nails, eyes. Colored bell peppers are best
5. Fruit: very high sugar content, limit fruits in juice, unless active
6. Lemon: low in sugar, packed with Vitamin C
7. Green Apples: gives juice sweetness, contains vitamins and minerals
8. Green Leafy Vegetables: packed with Vitamin K, Calcium, Magnesium. Kale is king!

Juicing Recommendations:
-I usually juice about 3-4 times per week to promote health, boost energy, and cleanse the body!
-The best way to cleanse and heal the body is by doing a juice fast for 1-14 days.
-Juice for health to lose weight, cleanse and detox the body, and get in the best shape of your life!

  • What do you recommend about cleansing the kidneys?

  • I don’t have a colon can I still have the same health incress

  • Dr. Axe, I’m in the military and don’t have the time to juice fresh vegetables like this, is V8 juice a good alternative? I’m trying to stay as healthy as I can while being in the field all day. Gotta work with what I got. What other things could we do to maintain the best health possible?

  • Beetroot: vhttps://t.co/JjfVlih8SQ A super food that should be included in any juicing recipe is known to elevate blood flows and nitric oxide levels and increase testosterone. A deficiency in nitric oxide leads to weaker erections and below par performance. Increased blood flow is also crucial in maintaining a healthy and lasting erection. Increased muscle oxygenation from beetroot intake also ensures a rise in tolerance levels in males aged 35+ an above. Apart from sexual healing beetroot juice also aids in maintaining blood pressure and fighting against various inflammations.

  • love watching your videos!!

  • Not a bad video for a fake doctor.

  • Hello I've been feeling horrible sick I went to the doctor and I'm fine but I feel sick I've been have acid reflex to

  • Can you make a video about chicken skin and how to cure it.

  • Not the most important questions after watching this, but two things: (1) is blending, vs. juicing, not superior in the sense that you aren't removing the fiber. Yes, there is some solidity so perhaps your digestive system is working a bit harder, but the fiber is very good for you – I would not want to lose that – I'm not losing any of those nutrients you note (2) where can I buy that shirt, or shirts like it?

  • Thanks DR Axe for your amazing videos full of so much useful info. I really appreciate the time you took to do this!

  • i will say carrots are full of frutose believe it or not. causes you to gain weight. along with most fruits aside from tomatos

  • Yum, that looks good! Is it a good idea to add a protein powder to a cleansing juice?

  • Thank you Dr. Axe. I guess I need to stop adding bananas into my juice smoothies. As usual you give such great advice. Bless.

  • Dr Axe, planning on doing a juice cleanse for 5 days but then I was reading about your bone broth information. Would you recommend a juice cleanse or bone broth cleanse for optimal digestion and clear skin?

  • Very informative video, thanks Dr. Axe. I recently start jucing, and I feel great. But I came across many info on medical websites that Too much vitamin A, D, or K can lead to increased levels that are unhealthy and can cause health consequences (example oxalate which later leads to kidney stones). If I always eat colourful veggies in my meals, how many green juice should I take daily ?I am in my late 30, fit, and I want to do juicing correctly to prevent aging diseases.

  • Dr. Axe can I drink a glass of Juiced vegetables while doing intermittent fasting?

  • Throw some ginger and turmeric in there

  • Great video. I eat alot of raw vegetables. I do a smoothie in the morning (spinach, parsley, cucumber, coconut oil, ginger). I steam veggies in the afternoon (Broccoli, potatoes, cauliflower). In the evening I will make a big salad (kale, romaine and other greens) with beans. I do eat fruit in between (bananas, apples) sometimes I'll make a health cookie.  I'm a fitness instructor and teach zumba almost 10 times a week. So I workout a lot. I've been getting pimples on my forehead and cheek. Am I lacking in something? I started to get them when I started on my raw quest. I'm adding in some steamed things, but still their staying on my face. I sometimes add in tuna or sardines.  Thanks in advance.

  • this video would be very funny if jucing meant jercking off

  • i found myself juicing several apples/pears/oranges per day to sweeten the other veggies like beets, kale and celery…hard to down veggies juices with no fruits 🙁
