If you are looking to take your health to the next level juicing is the way to go! There are endless benefits to juicing but the main advantage is how quickly the nutrients from the juice enter our blood stream. Smoothies are an excellent option as well but if you are looking for that quick delivery of a nutritional punch, juicing is the way to go.
