Celebrities Who Juice

Celebs Like Nicole Richie Go Raw For Pressed Juice

Juicing has officially taken Hollywood by storm. Nicole Richie, Whitney Port, and Tracy Anderson are regulars at Pressed Juicery, and stars like Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Szohr, and Olivia Wilde are all known for getting their green juice on. Even I'm a pressed juice convert; a few times a week I buy the "Veggie Five" from my local juicery — a blend of celery, beets, apples, carrots, and parsley. At home, I love making my own green juice with apples, carrots, and spinach. Juicing is an easy (and tasty!) way to supplement my diet with antioxidants, vitamins, and other needed nutrients.

Advocates of juicing say it's a great way to alkalize the body and take in a wider variety of fruits and veggies. And because you're getting the fruits and veggies in raw liquid form with the fiber removed, juicing fans claims that they'll be absorbed more quickly since less digestive work is needed. While no significant studies have been done to back up these claims (including the claim that raw juice has detox abilities), I always crave one on days I feel sluggish or haven't eaten enough veggies and find that I feel more alert and energized after drinking one. Keep in mind that depending on your ingredients, you might end up with more sugar than you bargained for — it takes a lot of produce to make a 12-ounce drink!

I always feel like juicing things is wasteful; so much nutrition gets thrown away! I'd also really like to see some science behind the statement "they'll be absorbed more quickly since less digestive work is needed". It seems far too simplistic to me.
