Q: Whats the best time of the day to have juice? Early morning on an empty stomach or anytime during the day? Is drinking juice in the evening beneficial or not recommended?
A: Most studies show that drinking juice in the morning (on an empty stomach and alone) is the most beneficial time of day to have fresh juice.
The nutrients will be absorbed more easily and it doesn't have other food to interfere with your body's cleansing. Juice is mostly for cleansing.
Fruit juice is the best in the morning hours.
As a general rule, it's always best the morning to have something light (bowl of fruit, smoothie or juice). Heavy foods in the morning slow our digestive systems down and make us sluggish.
Drinking juice in the evening or anytime is still beneficial. The benefits of juicing still remain no matter what time of day you drink it. But the morning is the best.
Follow these two general rules when drinking juice:
1) Juice is best drunk alone in fruit only combinations in the morning hours. Wait at least 10 minutes before having food.
2) If drinking juice with a meal later on in the day, be sure to drink slowly and swich it around your mouth to get the digestive enzymes going.
I personally do not like to have juice with a meal. It's too much for my stomach and doesn't help my digestion. I always drink it alone. If I have it in the evening it's usually an hour or two before bed or it's after an evening workout and contains celery to rehydrate my body.
