Juicing and blending have many differences, yet many similarities since they both provide equally important purposes on the path to wellness.
So what’s the difference between them? Juicing offers you the possibility to create drinks that flood your bodies with nutrients which are incredibly easy to digest, both veggies and fruit are needed for juicing, therefore there is a higher dose of vitamins. The nutrients in juice are more highly concentrated than if you were to eat the fruits and vegetables by themselves and that’s a perfect and easy way to fill your body with all the nutrients it needs.

Meanwhile smoothies offer fiber, since the blending process breaks the fiber apart and makes it easier to digest, and is really important for regulating blood sugar, keeping bowels regular, aiding in hunger control, and it may help prevent certain types of cancers. Smoothies also are a good source of good fats and gives you the opportunity to add more protein into your diet and take longer to oxidize. It is a perfect opportunity to take advantage of all the benefits hidden in the skin of the fruits and vegetables.
They are both delicious and an excellent way to provide the body of all the nutrients it needs, so it is more like a matter of personal preference and it also depends on what your body needs the most! They are both energy boosters! Begin your day with a health packed smoothie or juice and you will feel the difference during the entire day!
