Here, a 70 year old woman claims that her raw vegan diet along with juicing has been her ‘fountain of youth’ and who can blame her, she looks fabulous! Her husband who eats a standard American diet on the other hand, well, just watch . . .
Your digestive system is a wonderful machine and and when it is working correctly, it extracts majority of the nutrition found in whatever you eat. Yes even a tub of Ben And Jerrys Chocolate Fudge Brownie has some nutritional value.
But more and more of us are eating less than optimal diets and combined with the increase in allergies, digestive troubles and conditions that cause leaky gut, it leads to less than optimal absorption of food.
Juicing has increased in popularity in the last few years with lots of proponents and books coming out on the subject. And with claims of curing conditions like psoriasis, hayfever, eczema and even assisting in weight loss, it’s little wonder that so many of us are sitting up and taking notice now.
What Does It Mean For Your Hair?

It really isn’t as hard as you think to replace your hair supplements* with freshly extracted, delicious vegetable and fruit juices. I will be writing further articles on the subject of juicing so that you can all have a better understanding of how to combine your fruits and vegetables to pack a nutritional punch.
As an insurance policy for a healthy body and healthy hair, juicing makes sense.
