Raw Juice vs. Pasteurized Juice
Freshly squeezed juice tastes so much better than store-bought, doesn't it? There's a reason. When you drink the juice of a raw fruits or vegetables - right after it's been extracted, you're filling your body with living enzymes, vitamins, and nutrients. Our bodies are alive. They can tell the difference between a living juice and one that has been sitting on a shelf containing preservatives and additives. It tastes different because it is different. ALL store-bought juices (Yes, even the green, healthy looking ones) are pasteurized, which kills all the nutrients and enzymes. Raw juice is so beneficial to you, because like a sponge, your body happily absorbs all of the above goodies when you include them in your diet. Your digestion will improve, you'll rest better at night, have a healthier bowel, think more clearly; some even insist their eyesight is enhanced. Without these living nutrients in your juice, you're just drinking a flavor.
