Juices are made by centrifuging vegetables, which separate the solids from the liquids. Juicers tend to heat up the vegetables, thus leading to a loss of enzymes, which is why including fruit and vegetable skins can be beneficial. Juices are beneficial for a balanced and varied diet, above all in times of stress, or intense physical activity or work.
