Is Green Juice Good For You? Experts Weigh In

Everyone knows they need to get their greens but not everyone wants to eat them.

In the video above, Time tries to get the skinny on green juice by talking to medical experts on the trend. Balancing the benefits of going green and comparing the vegetable blend to fruity concoctions, Time's health editor captures the pros and cons of juicing your greens.

If you prefer to gulp your greens instead of chewing them, Dr. Jennifer K. Nelson of the Mayo Clinic says you should add a little pulp to your blend since it is packed with healthy and filling fibre.

Of course, making your own juice is better than buying bottles loaded with carbs and sugar than you could ever eat in one sitting. And juicing doesn't come cheap either, ABC News reports. Whether you buy a $10 bottle of juice from the health food store or pick up a high powered blender for $400, juicing just costs so much more than fresh produce.

Watch the video above to find out what the experts had to say.
