(Health Secrets) Juicing fresh vegetables and fruits can be one of the healthiest things you can do. When done properly, it can even help conquer serious illness such as cancer. However, unless you consume your juice quickly you may be wasting much of your money as well as most of the most important benefits juicing might provide. Whether it is juicing to maintain health or juicing for cancer, it cannot be stressed enough that enzymes are the key, and the juice must be consumed very quickly before the enzymes die off.

Enzymes and Other Living Phytonutrients Die Quickly Once They are Juiced
There is a very good reason that the famed Gerson clinics does juicing for cancer several times a day: enzymes and other phytonutrients which fight cancer and other disease begin to degrade and die off immediately. It is those phytonutrients, especially the enzymes, that are the primary items in vegetables and fruits that beat cancer and other illnesses. In juicing for cancer or other diseases, famed natural health figure Dr. Bernard Jensen found that juicing and super juices will NOT work without live enzymes.
If you use a centrifugal juicer, the enzymes die almost immediately. In great part this is because centrifugal juicers oxygenate the juice, and the resulting oxygen radicals destroy the enzymes and other living phytonutrients. The higher the RPM of centrifugal and other juicers, the more the juice is oxygenated and the faster the enzymes are destroyed. Thus any juice you make with a centrifugal or a high RPM juicer of any type must be consumed immediately.
Depending on what kind of juicer you use, the enzymes may be dead within as little as a few scant minutes to as much as one to three days. In fact, only the most expensive and highly regarded juicer – Norwalk juicer, which retails for a hefty $2500) – only preserves enzymes for one and one-half to two and possibly three days. Other highly regarded juicers, such as the best Omega and Green Star models, produce juice where the enzymes last for perhaps one day. However, such juicers normally cost only $250 to $350 dollars.
