    I hope it is, because I drink about half of a half-gallon bottle of low-sodium V8 a day

    V8 is better than no veggies, but terribly inadequate when compared to fresh fruit/vegetable juice. It will contain pesticides and whatnot from the conventional produce used to make it (which will be poor quality as well). It has added sodium, even if it is "low".

    Fibre is important, and juice is seriously lacking. The fibre in fruit and veggies keeps sugars from digesting too fast, controlling blood sugar. Juices that are sugary (more so fruit juices, but the V8 fusion as well) are lacking the fibre and cause a blood sugar spike.

    The worst part is that it has been pasteurized. If juice keeps for a few months, IT IS NOT NATURAL!

    V8, like all fruit/veggie juices are processed, people are mislead on this fact.

    Fruits and veggies exert their powerful nutrition through many ways. First is Minerals, the basis of health, these are not changed too much from pasteurization, but the next are. Some vitamins will be stable, but vitamins like C are destroyed.

    Veggies and fruits also contain hundreds of phytonutrients and antioxidants, many of which are also destroyed during pasturization.

    And the final reason is enzymes! Enzymes will help digest your food, by eating protein with veggies high in enzymes it relieves the work of your body a lot.

    Try just eating more whole fruits and veggies and move away from the processed food.

    I make my own veggie juice (I really like Apple, Carrot, Kale) and they are 100x better than V8, so fresh and rejuvenating, not dead and salty.

    The salt in V8 makes it actually harmful.

    Default Breville Juicers

    Breville juicers are top of the line if you want to invest in a juice machine. It extracts every last drop while giving you a great pulp to put in the compost pile!

    My wife and I love fresh cold veggie juices... especially after a hard workout. We try to keep the juice drinking to only after a workout so that the sugars are quickly processed from our elevated metabolism and not sent to the adipose tissue for later!!

    We belong to a farmers co-op and we get a new delivery of organic veggies every Monday. Whatever is left on Sunday gets juiced. Yesterday was beet/carrot/cabbage/apple. It was delicious and it gives quite a head rush when you down the glass! I don't know what that is from but it is not at all unpleasant.

    My advice is to consider juices as supplements only. They are not to replace eating veggies!

    I actually have an omega juicer. It's the same one that Dr. Mercola recommends as being the "last juicer" you'll ever need but the one I have is Chrome. The Chrome color just looks nicer in my kitchen and doesn't get as dirty as white. Here's a link to the article.

    Hi man ,

    I like this site. I know many think in this site.Everyday our body need some nutrition food. A healthy diet helps children grow and learn. It also helps prevent and weight-related diseases, such as diabetes. The following guidelines will help you give your child a nutritious diet:

    • Offer five servings of fruits and vegetables a day
    • Choose healthy sources of protein, such as lean meat, nuts and eggs
    • Serve whole-grain breads and cereals because they are high in fiber
    • Broil, grill or steam foods instead of frying them
    • Limit fast food and junk food
    • Offer water and milk instead of sugary fruit drinks and sodas

    Learn about your children's nutrient requirements. Some of them, such as the requirements for iron and calcium, change as your child ages. So thanks for hem who open this site.


    Thank you
