Liquids, such as purified water, herbal teas and fresh squeezed juices, move through the stomach in 10 minutes and are eliminated through the kidneys in about 2-3 hours. Fresh squeezed juices have no fiber but are loaded with enzymes, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids and phyto-nutrients. Solid foods will take around 30 minutes to 4 hours to digest and needs 8-24 hours to be eliminated through a bowel movement. Juice is best as in-between-meals beverage to give extra nutrition we need to boost our immune systems!
