Is Juicing the Best Way to Consume Fruit?


Oranges on Cutting Board

If you want a tasty, healthy drink, juicing can be a great way to get in those raw veggies and fruits. However, if you’re a healthy individual, it’s usually better to go with whole fruits and veggies. The whole fruit offers you the best nutrition and some great health benefits.

Filling Fiber

One of the reasons to eat whole fruits or veggies is because they contain fiber. Most people aren’t getting enough fiber in their diet, and fiber is important for making you feel full and keeping your digestive system functioning normally. When you juice fruits and veggies, the fiber is removed, so you don’t get all the great fiber found in whole fruits and veggies.

Essential Nutrients for the Skin

When you juice fruits and veggies, you don’t get all the nutrients found in the skin. The skin of many fruits contain important nutrients, such as flavonoids and carotenoids, that offer great health benefits.

Enjoy Greater Satisfaction

Sure, a nice drink is great, but you just don’t get quite the satisfaction when you drink your fruits and veggies. Whole fruits and veggies take some work to eat, so they become more filling and satisfying. Fruits and veggies are especially great when you’re craving a crispy, crunchy snack – you just can’t get that fruit a glass of fruit and veggie juice.

Sugar Absorption

When you drink fruit juices in particular, you absorb the sugars quickly. If you eat those fruits whole, your body won’t absorb the sugars as quickly. Sure, juice is still a better choice than sugared sodas, but it’s better to enjoy those fruits in whole form when possible. 

Overall, choosing to eat whole fruits and veggies is a healthier choice, particularly if you’re focusing on weight loss. Juicing still offers some benefits, but for the best results, enjoy eating those fruits and veggies.
