Maybe it’s all about the juice? It is impossible to unambiguously answer this question. In order for the drink to bring benefits and good mood, you need to know when and how best to drink freshly squeezed juice.
Tough choice: juice, vegetable or fruit
Eat fruit or drink juice? It may give the illusion that they are one and the same. But when squeezing a fruit or vegetable, it is divided into two components: juice and cake, which consists of a peel and squeezed pulp. However, it is in the cake that useful fiber remains, which has a positive effect on digestion processes. Juice with pulp will be healthier than regular juice. A fruit or vegetable will be healthier than juice.
In addition, a freshly squeezed drink causes sharper fluctuations in blood glucose, because sugar gets into the open and is immediately absorbed into the blood. And this additionally loads the pancreas.
A fruit drink has more sugar and calories than a vegetable drink. Therefore, vegetable juices are preferable.
