Juicing- is the Hype Real?

There’s nothing new about juicing. We’ve given it a snappy handle, but Juicing has been around for centuries. Drinking the juices of raw fruits and vegetables as a path to good health was even touted in the early nineteenth century.

Sweeter words have never been spoken. It would be like a dream come true. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be true. Good things really can be yours just from asking for them when you know how to ask. That’s the key. Knowing how to ask, and knowing what to ask for. You can ask for anything you want.
