Rhubarb looks a bit like red celery, but it’s actually a member of the fruit family. Juicing is a great way to take in valuable nutrients without having your body word hard to break down the fibers. It’s high in many vitamins such as calcium, vitamin K and Lutein, a natural antioxidant that’s great for healthy eyes and skin. When you “juice” fruits and vegetables, the food value is readily available to your body in larger quantities than when you eat the fruit whole. The benefits of consuming juiced fruits and veggies include keeping your heart, liver and kidneys strong and healthy.
