Talking Juice

As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Certified Diabetes Educator, clients often ask me about the health and effectiveness of the juicing trend.  While there are differing opinions in the scientific community about juicing as a healthy option, many consumers are trying it in an effort to improve their diet and adopt a healthier lifestyle.  Most people know that incorporating a variety of fruits and vegetables into their diet provides an abundance of vital nutrients, including antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. By juicing these fruits and vegetables, you allow your body to be flooded by these nutrients. An occasional juicing regimen can provide variety to a balanced diet and can also help consumers to move away from a lifestyle of highly processed foods, in a sustainable way.

About Red Mango Raw6

Too many juicing regimens on the market encourage consumers to fast for several days, often taking in far less calories than their bodies need for daily vital functions.  Often these regimens produce uncomfortable and sometimes dangerous side effects, such as headaches, light-headedness, dizzy spells and gastrointestinal discomfort.  Red Mango’s Raw6 one-day juice program, with the addition of snacks and/or a healthy meal, provides consumers with a more reasonable approach to juicing while allowing their bodies to receive the nutrients it needs.
