Here is the seventh instalment in my series on common juicing mistakes:

Drinking Your Juice Too Quickly

Juices and smoothies are food and not meant to be poured straight down your throat. When you eat solid food the process of digestion starts in your mouth. As you chew, enzymes in your saliva get to work on the food to ensure nutrients are delivered to your cells. The same is true when juicing. I know this might sound a little strange but try to chew your juices before you swallow them. Moving the juice around your mouth will help it mix with your saliva and allow your digestive enzymes to start working so that your body can digest your juice faster.
