View Full Version : Absorption time

Yesterday, I had some peaches, a mango, and a pineapple that looked a little too mushy. So, I cut them up and put them in a bowl with some lemon juice to keep the fruit from browning. I juiced them today with celery, spinach, and radishes. Taking into account what the contents were and that it was juiced, not a smoothy, how much time elapses before it "hits" you. Are certain combos enough to bring on a run to the bathroom? Or could it have been just a coincidence?
I keep reading about 30 minutes with juice, but what is that 30 minute count that is talked about referring to?

The 30-min count to which people refer, is that you should drink it within 30 min of juicing to obtain the most nutrients.
But many feel that it is better to say, pack some juice or a smoothie for lunch (which would be longer than 30 min), then to go out and buy some junk for example.

yes juice can cause your bowels to move. apple does it for me!
next time, instead of precutting your fruit... wait until right before you juice it. the less time it spends cut before juicing is better. oxidation would begin as soon as it's cut.

A juice can mean an instant trip for me. Not always, but first thing in the morning it would be for certain.

All I know is once school starts up again, I better prepare for bathroom runs!
