Hydration Through Fresh Juice
Fresh juices contain a high fluid content, so when you are thirsty, instead of reaching for a can of soda why not prepare a fresh glass of fruit or vegetable juice? Sixty-five percent of the human body is composed of water, and water is the major ingredient in blood. Healthy blood feeds our cells and transports metabolic waste from our system. Fresh fruit juices aid this process by cleansing the blood and improving its important chemical and electromagnetic qualities.
Popular beverages such as: coffee, tea, soft drinks, alcohol and tap water all contain additives, preservatives, chlorine, fluoride, caffeine and numerous other ingredients that tax our kidney and liver as these organs work to eliminate the non-nutritive substances in these beverages from our system. By contrast the fluid in fresh juices is naturally pure as it contains no harmful substances; it cannot tax the kidney and liver.
