Juicing vs. Blending


Is there a difference? Yes.

Juicing extracts the water and nutrients from the produce and discards the fiber. Blending simply mixes all ingredients together; including water, nutrients and fiber. Which is better for you? Both. They each have different benefits.



  • Makes nutrients more readily available to the body in larger quantities.
  • Nourishes and restores the body at a cellular level.
  • Gives the digestive system a break so cells can focus on rest and repair.
  • Makes it easier to consume an adequate amount of fruits and vegetables daily.


  • More filling than juice, so you are likely to stay satiated for a longer period of time.
  • Can often serve as a meal replacement.
  • The high fiber content helps balance blood sugar levels.
  • Helps to regulate and support digestion by pushing toxins out of the colon.

TIP: Swish your juice or smoothie in your mouth for 20-30 seconds before swallowing it to facilitate digestive enzymes in your mouth and prevent bloating and gas.
