Fruit Juice

Fruit and vegetable juices are good sources of the traditional nutrients.

Citrus fruits (grapefruit, oranges, etc.) provide healthy portions of vitamin C.

Carrot juice contains large quantities of vitamin A, in the form of beta carotene.

A number of green juices are a good source of vitamin E. Fruit juices are a good source of essential minerals like iron, copper, potassium, sodium, iodine, and magnesium, which are bound by the plant in a form that is most easily assimilated during digestion.

Cucumbers are high in silica, which is a mineral that strengthens your connective tissues and is good for tendons, muscles, cartilage, bones and ligaments. It is also good for skin elasticity, fingernails and complexion
