Fresh fruit juices are known for their body-cleansing potential and their energy life force.
During the juicing process, the cell wall of fruits and vegetables is cut open, releasing an abundance of nutrients, such as amino acids, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and chlorophyll. As soon as you drink fresh juice, those nutrients are quickly absorbed by the body and create such an energizing effect.
There is no comparison to bottled juices, which have been pasteurized for shelf life, destroying the enzymes and many vitamins.

- Ideally it is best to consume juice within 20 minutes of making it. As a general rule, make only as much juice as you intend to consume in that time. If you need to store it in the fridge, use an airtight glass container for up to 48 hours — any longer and it will have virtually no nutritional benefits beyond calories and some mineral content.
Fruit juices contain high levels of natural sugar, so they’ll give you an immediate boost.
