Juicing is the process of extracting the liquid from fruits and vegetables, while removing the solids. This can be done by hand or with a motor-driven juicer. The juice from fruits and vegetables doesn’t contain any skin, seeds or pulp. It does contain some nutrients and antioxidants, but without the beneficial fiber of whole fruits and vegetables.
Some people use juicing as a so-called “detox” method. However, there are no scientific studies showing that replacing solid food with juice will detoxify the body. Your body is able to get rid of toxins on its own through the liver and kidneys, so using juice as a detox treatment is completely unnecessary.
People also use juices as nutrition supplements and to lose weight. Neither of these uses is supported by research, but many people claim they work. There is not any formal research to support that juicing helps with weight loss.
