Green Leaf Juice
The green leaf juice is extremely rich in iron and other minerals, and very high in chlorophyll. It is a substance similar to human hemoglobin, is the richest source of oxidizing enzymes.
It is recommended that juicers have two separate components, a grinder to grind the vegetables into pulp and a hydraulic press to extract the juice of the vegetable from the pulp by squeezing it under high pressure. We used masticating juicers as they are acceptable alternatives and extract sufficient amount of juice, preserving enzyme activity.

Relationship between the carrots and apples provides greater nutrient absorption when they are juiced together. It has a pleasant flavor and is easy on the digestive system. This juice is high in beta-carotene, calcium, minerals, vitamins, and phytochemicals.
