Note: You’ll notice that a majority of these recipes are vegetable-based. Since vegetables are low-calorie and have minimal amounts of sugar, they’re the perfect ingredient for any healthy juice recipe.

When talking about recipes for weight loss, we tend to stray away from those that are heavily fruit-based. Fruit has a natural form of sugar, which has the potential to slow down weight loss if consumed regularly.

This does not mean that you can’t eat fruit again. Fruit is often included in a diet that is healthy. It is important to keep in mind the amount of sugar that you are consuming on a daily basis.

Each of these recipes were made with the Goodnature M-1 juice press commercial juicer in the Goodnature Innovation Kitchen.

Can Juicing Help You Lose Weight?

The answer is yes! There are hundreds of different “juice diets” and juice detoxes on the market. The reason why these tend to work is that when you consume nothing but low-calorie foods, you decrease your caloric intake – helping you lose weight!

In order to lose weight, you must maintain a caloric deficit, which means you’re consuming fewer calories than you burn. In theory, juicing is great for decreasing your daily caloric intake while feeding your body the nutrients it needs.

This doesn’t necessarily mean that the only way to lose weight is to partake in an intense 10-day juice cleanse.

There are plenty of different ways to incorporate juice into your everyday life to help you lose weight. One example includes trading your morning brown sugar oatmeal for vegetable juice instead. Or replacing your high-calorie afternoon snack with a carrot juice. There’s plenty of different ways to experiment with juicing for weight loss!

If you happen to be more interested in a juice fast (or cleanse), that’s great! For tips on how to juice cleanse/fast safely, read our article here.

10 Serious Health Benefits of Juicing

Drinking fresh juice has a very long list of health benefits. It’s no wonder why nutritionists love to add juice to their clients’ diets. Here are a few of the most common juicing benefits:

1. Potential weight loss aid

You already know that juicing can help you lose weight, because you have gotten this far.

Depending on the fruits and vegetables you are consuming, it is possible that your morning, afternoon or evening juice is lower in calories than your normal snacks.

It is a great way to get your body into fat-burning/pound-shedding mode if you are deficient in calories. Juicing is a great supplement for fruits, vegetables, and superfoods that you may not be aware of.

2. Increased vitamins, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants in your diet

Juicing can provide the body with a healthy source of vitamins and minerals. These key nutrients help us grow, think, work and so much more. High levels of vitamin C, vitamin A, potassium and more (even calcium) are often found in our favorite juices.

The fresh juice recipes are rich in anti-oxidants. Red/orange-colored fruits and veggies have an abundant amount of the anti-oxidants alpha-carotene. The body converts Beta-carotene to vitamins A and C when it is consumed.

It’s worth noting that raw vegetable juice is also a good source of enzymes. That said, the enzymes from juice likely do not help your body digest food as you might expect (source).

3. Reduces inflammation

Are you experiencing pain or inflammation? Juicing can be a great supplement due to its anti- inflammatory properties.

There is a lot of processed foods in the American diet. Do you know what processed foods are great for? Causing inflammation in the body.

Thankfully, many of the ingredients that are included in fresh juice recipes have anti-inflammatory properties. Take apples, beets, carrots, ginger, and leafy greens, for example. These are all noted as “Anti-Inflammatory” in our juicing guide book, The Juicing Companion.

4. Boosts energy

One of the many ways we can increase our energy levels is through ingesting more foods that have B vitamins. This includes leafy greens, some citrus fruits, beets, ginger, and more. Juicing is a fast, healthy, and easy way to get these B vitamins into your system and boost your metabolism. No caffeine needed!

5. Great for detoxing the body

A diet that involves fasting is a typicaldetox diet. A diet consisting of fruit, vegetables, juices, and water is followed.

Unsurprisingly, making fresh juice at home is great for detoxing. We have a number of detox juice recipes here at Goodnature. Here’s one you might want to try: Lemon Strawberry Ginger Root Detox Juice Shot.

6. Can help lower cholesterol levels

Fruits and vegetables can help lower your cholesterol. There are many fruits and vegetables: carrots, kale, grapefruit, and apples. You can eat all of the fruits. A glass of fresh juice sounds more refreshing.

Suggested recipe: Carrot Apple Ginger Juice

7. Boosts immune system

When you want to avoid sickness, juice is the most effective natural remedy.

You can make juice with these ingredients if you want immune system support.

  • There are oranges, grapefruit, and other fruits and vegetables.
  • Green apple
  • Carrot
  • Beets
  • Turmeric
  • Ginger root
  • Tomato (homemade V8 juice, anyone?)
  • Mint leaves and other leafy greens are known as kaly.

This isn’t a complete list of fruits that are good for your immune system. It should be enough to get you started.

8. Can help lower blood pressure and blood sugar

Need to lower your blood pressure fast? Reaching for an apple isn’t your only option. Try a glass of beet juice, watermelon juice or berry juice!

The same goes for blood sugar. Blood sugar levels can be lowered by eating apples, broccoli, berries, and other fruits and vegetables.

Suggested recipe: Sweet Potato Pie Juice

9. Aids your digestive system

Juicing is a great way to get control over your gut health. Apples and celery are great for aiding the digestion. Mint leaves can help reduce gas consumption. Good digestion can be achieved with ginger. The list goes on and on.

10. Protects against disease

Juicing is a great way to get the vitamins and minerals you need from fruits and vegetables.

Equipment note: We used the M-1 commercial juice press to make these juice recipes, but you can use pretty much any type of juicer. Just keep in mind that the quality will always be higher when using a juice press.
