food enzymes it will contain. This means that you either find a store that prepares it
right before you drink it or you use a juicer yourself.
Be sure to get a really good juicer. Good juicers make tastier juices, faster and do a
better job in the extraction process. Good juicers also clean up more easily than
There are in fact, many ways to go about juice fasting. The best is to consult your
