Juiceheads are everywhere and no, we aren’t talking about the GTL-loving Jersey Shore gang. Juice bars are popping up in cities across the U.S., offering customers fresh juice with a bevvy of benefits.

According to the Mayo Clinic, juicing isn’t any better for you than eating whole fruits and vegetables but if  you tend to shy away from fruits and veggies, it can be a great way to get the nutrients your diet might be missing. We partnered up with expert juicer, Akin Olokun at Earth’s Healing Cafe to find out how certain combinations of fruits and veggies can help with specific health issues.
