A JUICER- duh! :-)…. and no… a blender will not get you the same results. Juicing first thing in the morning detoxes your body unlike anything else. Because your are eliminating the pulp (which is all of the fiber) from the fruits and vegetables- your body skips the digestion process and all these powerful nutrients go straight to the blood stream. The longer you can keep your body in the “Fasting” state- the more detoxifying it is. This is also the same reason why you should not eat past 8:00 pm. You need to allow your body a minimum of 12 hours of fasting each day. 8:00 pm to 8:00 am. –> Juicing in the morning is not considered a meal replacement. This is simply a boost to helping your body continue to eliminate the toxins out. Blending is great, however you are consuming all of the fiber and pulp. You will not get the same detoxifying results as you will with juicing. The second you take a sip of your greens SMOOTHIE, you are awakening the digestive system, which makes the fasting process stop. This is the reason why I try to juice every morning instead of blending my fruits and veggies.
In order to receive the full benefits of your juice- you need to drink it within 15 minutes of juicing. As your sipping it- swish the juice in your mouth a little- to help the acids in your mouth break it down even further- before swallowing.
