JUICING FOR HEALTH
September 24, 2012 on 9:48 pm
You ever hear the saying one apple a day will keep the doctor away? Well organic apple cider vinegar is much like an apple on steroids. It has been used over the centuries for making pickles, killing weeds, polishing armor, skin toner, weight loss, salad dressing and more.
Apple cider vinegar is an ancient fold remedy, touted to relieve just about any ailment you can think of. I remember about 5 years ago I had an older lady tell me to start taking this stuff every day if I didn’t want cancer. After my first month of taking this stuff I knew it was the real deal and now it’s a staple in my daily routine.
What Is Apple Cider Vinegar?
Vinegar is a product of fermentation. This is a process in which sugars in a food are broken down by bacteria and yeast. In the first stage of fermentation, the sugars are turned into alcohol. Then, if the alcohol ferments further, you get vinegar. The word comes from the French, meaning “sour wine.” While vinegar can be made from all sorts of things — like many fruits, vegetables, and grains — apple cider vinegar comes from pulverized apples.
The main ingredient of apple cider vinegar, or any vinegar, is acetic acid. However, vinegars also have other acids, vitamins, mineral salts, and amino acids.
What Are The Benefits Of Apple Cider Vinegar?
My Personal Improvements When Taking It Three Times a Day
As you can see these benefits are pretty amazing. I usually just put a table spoon in the vegetable juice I make or mix it with a Gatorade. If you can tolerate the taste and then just doing a straight up table spoon is fine but I prefer to mix it.
My personal favorite and the most popular brand is Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar, for $5.59 a bottle it’s very affordable and should last you a month and a half or more. I listed the Amazon link below where you can purchase it and read what others are saying. Start taking this stuff as soon as possible, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Naturally Cure Your Skin Problems, Illness & Diseases With Manuka Honey
Our goal at Fresh Start Juicers is to educate our visitors on all the what we call “super products” in the health industry. I would have to rate Manuka honey as one of the top three health products I use every day. Manuka honey is healthy, safe and extremely useful for a wide range of conditions. It can be used effectively for both internal and topical skin applications.
The benefits of this medicinal honey have been known since the early days when Egyptians applied the honey on their wounds. In today’s world with growing concern over antibiotic resistant staph and bacteria, scientists are taking another look at honey and its extraordinary qualities, being specifically interested in Manuka Honey Benefits.
So What Makes Manuka Honey So Special?
Manuka Honey is produced by bees that collect nectar from the Manuka Bush which is also known as a special tea tree only found in New Zealand. In the hive, the bees add an enzyme called glucose oxidase to the nectar in order to preserve the honey. Unlike traditional store bought honey, when Manuka honey comes into contact with body fluids, the glucose oxidase enzyme slowly releases antibacterial hydrogen peroxide. The levels of hydrogen peroxide released are not high enough to damage the body tissue but sufficient enough to kill any and all bacteria. There have been studies that have showed Manuka Honey can kill any and all known bacteria that it comes into contact with.
The Healing Effects Of Manuka Honey
Heals Burns- If you were out in the sun too long or burned your hand on the oven, apply some Manuka Honey to the burned area for fast healing and pain relief.
Honey For Asthma- Right before going to bed, take a mixture of 1 tsp. honey with 1/2 tsp. cinnamon.
Afternoon Fatigue- Feeling down during the middle of the day? Drink 1/2 Tablespoon of honey in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder. Energy will increase within one week if taken daily.
Heals Skin Conditions- If your battling acne, eczema, dry skin, cuts, bruises or any other annoying skin condition Manuka Honey could be your natural cure. We will go more in depth in later posts.
Prevent Cancer- If you take a table spoon of Manuka Honey a day it’ll fight against cancer cells and help prevent them from developing in the first place.
Treating Gastrointestinal Problems- Taking Manuka honey everyday will help heal your gastrointestinal issues and improve digestion.
Treats Sore Throats- If you can’t stand sore throats make sure to have Manuka Honey on hand, it’ll help sooth the pain and assist your body in getting over the sickness quicker.

To make it easy for you to find the best Manuka Honey available we have partnered with Amazon and will list the Best Manuka Honey below for the lowest price.

I don’t know about you guys but the heat is getting old. Today in Arizona it’s like 110 degrees, which is cooler than it was the last two days! When I feel like by body needs a break from the heat I make this delicious drink. Below are the fruits you will need to get started.
Were you aware that Mangos were called the King Of Fruits in India? They don’t call them that for nothing. They are supercharged with Vitamins A and C. It’s been proven that Mango improves vision, complexion, takes away hunger, tones the heart and so many other things. They are also great for helping you feel cool and relaxed. To get these in juice form you will need to find a Quality Juicer if you don’t already own one.
This fruit is very popular during the summer months. It contains Vitamin A,B,C along with minerals like potassium, sodium and magnesium. This fruit is known for it’s great healing powers for skin diseases and when consumed regular it greatly reduces body heat.
Once you have those two fruits your ready to go. You can make as much juice as you want just cut them into slices and start juicing. If you would like to add to the flavor you can throw in an apple or two

When you first start learning to juice it may feel like you will never have time to do anything else in your life.
You have to make the juice fresh daily or at least every other day and depending on the type of juicer you have, it could take some time to prep all of your fruits and vegetables to get the job done.
Perhaps the issue of time is what has held you back from starting a juicing regime or maybe you used to love juicing buy lifestyle changes make it more difficult these days. This is completely understandable, but you don’t have to let juicing take over your world. You can incorporate it into your life without give up all of your free time.
First, get your thinking about juicing straight. Many people do think of juicing as lifestyle and they are willing to work their schedule around their juicing activities, but you don’t have to do that. If your life is more complicated and time is short, think of juicing as a healthy part of your life. This is something you are adding into your schedule, rather than something that will dictate your schedule.
Take the time to think about the main benefits you want to get from juicing. If you are trying to lose weight you probably want to use homemade juice to deliver nutrient-packed drinks that will give you the energy to get through tough workouts. If you are trying to live a healthy diet to preserve your health and youthfulness, then you probably want to use your fresh juice to deliver antioxidants and powerful phyto-nutrients to your body in large concentrations.
Once you know your main goal with juicing, think of simple ways to incorporate juicing either on a daily or weekly basis. If you are trying to lose weight and need your juices for energy, then whipping up fresh juice a few hours before a workout could be all you need. If you are trying to increase the antioxidants and nutrients you take in daily, then starting your day out with a fresh smoothie made with homemade juice could be the perfect routine.
Juicing can be a lot of fun if you have the time to stock the kitchen with every fruit and vegetable under the sun, prep them all, and play around with unique combinations and recipes found online. Yet, if you don’t have time for all that you don’t have to do all that to get the benefits you really want.
It is enough for many people to just find a few good Juice Recipes that they enjoy and which meet their most basic needs and goals. That cuts down on the amount of fresh produce you have to keep stocked (which cuts expenses) as well as the amount of time you have to invest in the juicing process.
One last tip that will really cut down on the amount of time you spend juicing: invest in a really good Vegetable Juicer that works fast. One that is good is the Breville Juice Fountain Elite. Many of the cheaper juicers take awhile to process and that is what makes the process a bit more costly in terms of time. Invest a bit more of your money for a very fast and highly efficient machine and you will have to invest a lot less time in the process.

Continuing on, so if you’re not a Centrifugal or Masticating juicer personality maybe some of the ones below fit you better. So to continue with the quiz…
Are You A Twin Gear Juicer
Hello good lookin’ are you ready to start cookin’? I’m the Twin Gear Juicer and I am the cream of the crop. Juicing fanatics who will settle for only the best pay top dollar for me because they know I will outperform all the rest.
I have two gears that turn around one another to twist, press, and rip apart fresh produce in a more efficient manner than all other juicer types. I am worth more than other juicers because I break apart even the tiniest veins to release more nutrients for your body.
I work twice as hard so you can benefit twice as much!
My delicious juice is far more nutrient-packed than the juices you get from other juicers, but I also make more juice. I give you dryer pulp and about 25% more juice so your money stretches further with me on your counter. I can sometimes be made from bio-ceramics like the Green Star Juicers, and that makes me even better because it helps me pull out even more nutrients.
Unlike the other types of juicers, I love chewing through green leafy vegetables, including wheatgrass! I can actually turn them into chlorophyll drinks if you want…that’s how good I am!
I’m not going to be a good fit if you are on a tight budget unless you really shop for a great deal, but I promise I am worth every dollar on my price tag. I am the best juicer if you are serious about making juicing your way of life or if you just want really delicious, nutritious juice and will only settle for the best of the best.
I’m the Wheat Grass Juicer and obviously I’m just good for taking fresh wheat grass and turning it into healthy chlorophyll juice to nourish, heal and energize your body. I am very popular today because more people realize that chlorophyll can do wonders for the body and natural wheat grass juice is more beneficial than supplements. This was all started by Charles F. Schnabel back in the 1940s, but millions of people are benefiting from the knowledge today.
If you want to juice up a variety of veggies and fruits in addition to wheat grass you should look at the powerful masticating juicers or those elitist twin gear juicers, but if you just want a simple manual wheatgrass juicer to use on a casual basis, I’m your girl. I’m also very affordable, especially if I’m manual.
The Citrus Juicer
Half up those oranges, grapefruit, and tangerines because I’m ready to start squeezing them! I am the simple yet deliciously sweet citrus juicer and I can take any type of citrus fruit from large oranges to small limes and turn them into fresh juice in just minutes. You cut your fruits in half and press me down over them and I squeeze out juice rich in vitamin C. If you use oranges, I can also give you tons of potassium, thiamine and folate.
Sure, you could use those other juicer types to get juice from citrus juices, but there are two reasons to save your citrus just for me: I use much less oxygen and heat so your juices will last longer in the fridge and my juices are much higher quality than what you can achieve with any other type of juicer.
Which juicer personality makes you smile the most? Which one reminds you of yourself? Which one might be the best fit for your expectations, standards and budget?
Anyway you go you will have the ability to improve your health and general well being by drinking pure juices with no additives, colorings or preservatives and all their natural nutrients left intact.
Now that you have an idea what type of juicers are on the market and what their differences are, it’s time to start learning how these juicers can bring you greater health. It’s time to stock up on knowledge so you can hit the store and stock up on healthful, delicious fruits and vegetables!
