Are the Nutrients in Your Juice Enough?

One of the best things that you can do for your health is to juice fresh vegetables. Drinking your veggies helps detoxify your body, cleanse and nourish your cells, and provide you with energy.

When Everyday Juicer, Ray Doustdar, felt continually nauseated from his pill-form vitamins, he decided to take matters into his own hands and see if the juices he was drinking daily contained all his daily vitamin needs.

The answer, surprisingly, came back that they did not. It turns out leafy green vegetables, which are 90% of what you should be juicing, lack the complete spectrum of daily vitamin needs from A-K.

It's true that they are very rich in plant-based nutrients, called phytonutrients, as well as many minerals. But juicing leafy green vegetables does not provide your daily value needs of many vitamins, including vitamin C, D, E and the B-complex vitamins.

This led Ray on a 15-month journey to take the absorption benefits and principles that he had learned (and believes in) when it comes to juicing, and apply that same concept to vitamins and literally create a "boost" for his juices, called BUICED! (spelled like "juiced" pronounced like "boost").
