The best time to have juice

Experts recommend six to eight servings of vegetables and fruits per day. But most of us find it difficult to reach this target. Having cold pressed juices in the morning can guarantee the achievement of your goals. Also juicing helps you consume a variety of veggies.

Drinking nutritious juice early in the morning will fill you up and help you resist fatty foods for the later part of the day. Also, it will decrease your carb intake during the rest of the day. Juices increase your energy levels, which motivate you to exercise. Drink your juice as a morning ritual to stay healthy.

Finally, it is advisable to have less acidic fruits and vegetables in the beginning.  Also always drink juice either on an empty stomach or at least 2 hours after a meal.
