Why should we not have fruit juice during the fast?

We do not recommend fruit juices during the fast. Fruits are sweet in nature. When they are juiced, the fibre is removed and the natural sugar gets concentrated in the juice. Fibre allows for slow and controlled digestion of sugar. Without the fibre, the sugar will enter the bloodstream too quickly, putting undue pressure on the pancreas to release a lot of insulin to stabilize the high sugar levels. 

Only to make the juice fasting easier for you, we allow you to add 1/2 an apple to your green or ABC juice.

If you consume fruit juice during the fast, the pancreas will get overworked. You will receive the best benefit from the fast when you let your pancreas also rest. Vegetable juices are much better to be consumed during a fast than fruit juices, since they contain no or very little sugar.

In case of diabetes, strictly even adding fruits to your green juice and stick to only vegetable juices throughout the day.
