ADAPTOGENS & JUICE
(w/ Matt Shook owner of Juiceland)
Today's Podcast is on the benefits of juicing fresh vegetables and fruits. We'll also explore other adaptogens and extracts that work really well with raw juices.
Today’s show is about the benefits of juicing fresh vegetables and fruits. When you juice vegetables and fruits you access digestive enzymes that are normally locked away in the fiber. Most commercial juices are processed and lacking in nutrition, while freshly juiced veggies and fruits are loaded with vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.
Our guest today is Matt Shook, Matt is the owner of Juiceland here in Austin, TX.
