The benefits of juicing

Bunmi George Juicing seems to be one of the newer health crazes in Nigeria, with juice bars popping up in almost every city these days, people are trying out juice-cleanses to shed pounds, detox, or just add a nutrient-packed snack to their diets. Health practitioners are encouraging people to do one simple thing – eat more fruits and vegetables because the thought that we can obtain all of our nutritional needs from our diets alone is now somewhat of a long lost dream. The recommendation is to eat five servings of fruit and three servings of vegetables a day; in reality most people only eat three and one in five people eats barely any fruit at all.

This trend couldn’t have come a…
