Getting nutrition from a balanced diet is essential for our body. Fruit juice contains only vitamins, minerals, and fiber. They are not a source of your balanced meal. Using raw juices instead of a well-balanced meal every day can be harmful to your body.

Raw juice aggravates Vata Dosha

As per Ayurveda, raw food can be cold, dry, light, rough by nature. These properties aggravate the Vata dosha inside our bodies. As a result, a person can get constipation, dry skin, bloating, etc.

Who should avoid drinking raw juice every day?

A person who has weak digestion will get affected the most. Raw food is hard to digest as compared to cooked form and puts a strain on digestion. Above all, it is basically how good your digestion is! It is not suitable for a person who often suffers from constipation, gas, or bloating.

Mainly, a person with Vata & Kapha Prakriti (body type) cannot easily digest raw and cold food items and may have harmful effects like constipation, indigestion, bloating, etc. 

On the other hand, a person with Pitta Prakriti can digest raw food (if taken in moderation) better than the Vata or Kapha person.

Weight Loss & Juice Fast:

  • Depending only on raw fruit juice for weight loss or any other reason can lead to hair loss, raised blood sugar levels, weakness, joint pain, constipation, bloating, gas, etc.
  • Also, drinking only raw juice in a day can spike blood sugar levels, causing hyperglycemia (too much blood sugar levels).

Can I never drink raw juice?

You can drink raw fruit juice (preferable with fiber) once in a while during hot weather if your digestion is strong.
