Chock-full of vitamins and minerals, juices make a great supplement to your recommended 5 to 13 daily servings of vegetables and fruits. Juicing is also a smart way to get kids to eat their greens, when camouflaged by fruit. Compared to pasteurized juices, freshly made juice has all of the living enzymes, vitamins, and minerals intact.

Another benefit? Juicing your own organically grown vegetables will save money. Instead of buying a bottle of cold-pressed juice for $8 a pop, you can just go to your garden and pick and make your own. Two to four glasses of fresh-pressed juice a day will help you get the full benefit of juicing, and supplement your diet.
