There are three categories of juices here: Fruit, Carrot and Green Juices. If you're unaccustomed to juicing, fruit juices may be your first choice. However, your goal should be to drink a variety of juices, (especially green juices), which are very healing to the body. Fruit juices are typically higher in sugar than vegetable juices. Some natural healthcare practitioners recommend "chewing" or swishing your fresh juice so as to have the sugars digest more slowly. Start with carrot juice combinations as a way to transition to green juices.

Chlorophyll-The Healer in Greens
Chlorophyll is the chemical formed by the chloroplast cells of green plants. It is at the beginning of the food chain-the plasma of green plants. Without chlorophyll all animal life on earth would become extinct. Amazingly, this 'blood of plants' is structurally similar to hemin, the protein portion of hemoglobin that carries oxygen. The main difference is that chlorophyl is bound by an atom of magnesium whereas hemin is bound by iron. Severely anemic rabbits made a rapid return to normal blood counts once chlorophyll was administered. Somehow the body is able to substitute iron and rebuild the blood. The chlorophyll in wheatgrass juice elevated blood platelet counts when it was fed to hospitalized patients.
Wheatgrass-The Queen of all Juices
Wheatgrass is a potent juice that is taken in one ounce doses. Although it is part of the 9,000 member family of grasses, which include the grasses on our lawns, wheatgrass and its cousin barley grass, are grown for nutritional purposes. These nutritional grasses are some of our finest sources of chlorophyll, but that's only the beginning. Grasses contain many other important pigments, too. There are carotenoids, betacarotene, etc. They are abundant in vitamin E and other important vitamins.
See my previous post on Chlorophyll and wheatgrass for more information.
