"Star Slims Down with Healthy Juice Cleanse."

It's the kind of headline you're no doubt used to seeing splashed across weeklies, tabloids, and celebrity gossip sites. (And why not? You figure, if there's anything a Hollywood actress should know about, it's healthy eating.) Last year, it was reported that Mad Men's January Jones allegedly dropped two dress sizes after following a strict juice diet, and A-lister Salma Hayek is such a fan of juicing that she was inspired to launch her own line of products. But in all seriousness, this is one headline you shouldn't be so quick to write off as attention-grabbing gossip.

Could it be? A popular Hollywood diet trend that's actually legitimate? Proponents of juicing and juice cleanses are quick to point out that they are great ways to get your daily dose of fruit and vegetables — and all the health-promoting vitamins, nutrients (antioxidants in particular) they contain. Says Kelly Aronica, MS, "To be honest, it's much easier to drink a glass of juice than it is to eat several pounds of vegetables. It's also easier to get variety in a juice. You can add a bit of a bunch of things, which probably isn't the way most people cook."

Ashley Koff, R.D., a celebrity dietitian, agrees — juicing is one way to try new foods and get essential nutrients. "What's so wonderful about juicing is that it gives you the opportunity to introduce foods into your diet you wouldn't normally eat, " she says.

OK, so how does one get started on the juicing trend? We asked nutritionists their opinion on some of the best and most popular fruits and vegetables for juicing. Leafy greens, cranberries, pomegranates, and parsnips all made the list. However, the most important quality to look for in your veggies: whether or not it's organic. Koff notes that if you're juicing one of the "dirty dozen" fruits or veggies, you're likely getting a mouthful of pesticides. "If you're juicing for nutritional values, you have to make sure you're getting organic produce, " she says. "If you get a kale smoothie at a store and find out the kale isn't organic, you're basically drinking a concentrated amount of pesticides."

Aronica also notes that in addition to fruits and vegetables, healthy fats are also great to include in juices. "Freshly ground flax seeds, avocado, almond milk, coconut milk, tahini, or walnut oil could be tasty ways to add a little healthy fat to your juice, " she says. Koff makes note that many of the phytonutrients in plants are fat-soluble, meaning they are best absorped with a little fat in the diet.

However, not all juices are equal: the newest research shows that how you make your juice could affect its nutritional content. Says Koff, blenders can heat up your juice, causing the fruits and veggies to lose some of their key nutrients. "Even with the best blender, you're getting your fruits and veggies at a higher temperature, " she says. Cherie Calbom, M.S., C.N., author of The Juice Lady's Turbo Diet and The Juice Lady's Living Food Revolution, says it's because of the friction of the blades. Blenders and juicers can also strip away fiber from certain veggies. And, Calbom notes, a blender is not the same as a juicer: "You're really getting a blended concoction, instead of a juice, " she says. To make her juices creamy, she usually makes her juices in a juicer, than pour its contents into the blender and adds spinach, avocado, or parsley.

Fruit juice & milk can be part of a healthy diet

For one many fruit juices contain potassium, which helps balance sodium in the diet and lowers blood pressure. Vitamin C in some fruit juices helps heal cuts and bruises, prevents infection, and aids in the absorption of iron (helping our bodies use the iron we get from foods), and vitamin A benefits eye and skin health. Carbohydrates from natural sugars in 100 percent juice provide energy, and the water content in juice helps meet fluid requirements. Fruits and vegetables have beneficial antioxidants (nutrients such as polyphenols, quercetin, anthocyanins) -- thousands have been identified so far -- and 100 percent juices contain an array of these compounds, which aren't listed in the Nutrition Facts panel of the product

I think we're deficient in fruit and vegetables

Even a diet that is heavy on fruits and veggies by american standards is very low compared to other cultures' cuisines.
for example, living in various asian and south american countries, it is a normal everyday thing to eat 3, 5 or more fruits especially citrus fruits per day in addition to drinking a few glasses of freshly squeezed fruit juice. most people i know here do not eat a fruit per day if they even eat a fruit per week.
also i think we're low in vitamin D because of lifestyle. but the solution to that is not pills. it is sunshine.
