Which Juice Should You Pick?
With so many great options, its hard to pick just one. Drinking the same one everyday will do no harm, but the body works best off of a variety of nutrients. Therefore, a GREEN juice one day, ORANGE the next, RED the day after that, and then two HYDRATORS would do you well.
When picking a juice Doc Bakers suggests focusing on the first two ingredients (the most abundent) and what their function is in the body. So let's take a look at some of the juices sitting in our refrigerator right now.
