Raw juices can fall into six different categories:
- Sweet Juices from sweet fruits like prunes and grapes
- Sub-Acid Juices from fruits like apples, plum, pears, peaches, and cherries.
- Acidic Juices which come from high acid fruits such as strawberries, oranges, lemons and everyone else in the citrus family.
- Vegetables Juices from vegetable juice like the cucumber and tomato.
- Leafy Green-Vegetable Juices derived from leafy green vegetables like cabbage, celery, lettuce, spinach, and parsley.
- Root Vegetable Juices which are made from vegetables like carrots, onions, potatoes, and radishes.
Fruit juices are good for stimulating the eliminative process, stirring up all the toxins and acids in your body and pushing them out. Vegetable juices take a more relaxed approach to detoxifying the body, gently carrying away the toxins while helping soothe your jaded nerves. Since fruit and vegetable juices work so differently, it is better not to mix the two together or even use them at the same time. It is actually best to use each juice on a individual basis, and to never mix more than three together in one concoction.
