We all know that eating vegetables daily provides the body with the right nutrients that we require and hence makes us healthy. And given this, we think that perhaps eating vegetables is the only way to score great health, but that's not it. Eating vegetables is something that you should do to stay healthy but drinking vegetable juices is a far more effective way to do so. Vegetable juices are generally prepared with a mix of different vegetables and thus contain more vitamins and minerals.

Apart from that, it is believed that they are absorbed in the blood easily as compared to simply eating vegetables. Moreover, vegetable juices are also great for the summer season as they keep the body hydrated. Expert nutritionist Pooja Makhija shared some of the best vegetable juice recipes on her social media and here we are telling you all about them.
