Despite the potential risks associated with unpasteurized juice, there are many who still believe that juicing is the key to good health. In Reddit’s /Juicing community, proponents of the practice say that it’s cleared up everything from their skin troubles to persistent brain fog. Some choose to go on “juice fasts” or cleanses, while others simply add juice to their daily intake. “My cystic acne that wasn’t improved much by Accutane is now almost gone,” writes one Redditor. Beyond anecdotal evidence, research published in Scientific Reports suggests that juice fasting can promote weight loss and increase good bacteria in the gut.
Although talk of celebrities following juice trends has faded somewhat in recent years, there’s no shortage of A-listers who diligently sip their fruits and veggies. In star-studded locales like Hollywood and New York, you can take your pick from several juice bars frequented by famous faces. “In the last year, I’ve been doing celery juice first thing in the morning,” Jennifer Aniston told Allure during a 2019 interview. Aniston isn’t alone in her love of celery juice, either — fans of the green drink include Pharrell Williams, Jasmine Tookes, and Kim Kardashian, per Us Weekly.
