Summary
fig-juiceBefore fig season ends, do yourself a favor and get some fresh figs! If you’ve never tried fresh figs, this is one of those opportunities to taste “nature’s candy” that is brimming with health benefits. The super-sweet fig can be a delighful addition to any fruit juice and most veggie juices, but first be sure to just pop one in your mouth if you’ve never tried it! Fresh figs have very short shelf life, you will want to use them within two days of purchasing them, and juicing can be a good way to do so. The majority of figs are dried, and if you can’t get your hands on the fresh ones, these can be substituted in the juice. Figs are a good source of potassium, dietary fiber, calcium, manganese, and vitamin B6. Including figs and other fruits and vegetables with these healing nutrients will help to regulate blood sugar levels, cardiovascular health, digestive health, and can lower the risk of breast cancer and eye diseases. Natures candy juice is pure sweet goodness, and uses ingredients that are currently available across the country. This is a good juice to have first thing in the morning to kick start the body with some natural sugars and delicious flavor
