We've all been duped into thinking that pasteurized juice like Tropicana's "not from concentrate orange juice" is better for us than "from concentrate" juice. Not so, unfortunately it's no better. Pasteurization means boiling the juice for a length of time at 145 degrees or above. All raw foods and juices contain living enzymes that are killed with any heat above 118 degrees. It is dead food. A good thing to remember is this:
if it's too hot to put your finger in the food you are preparing, then you are killing the enzymes and destroying a lot of the vitamins. If you put your hand in boiling water you will burn yourself and skin cells will start to die off, and if you kept your hand in that boiling water for some time you would have to have it amputated, because it would literally 'kill' all the cells in your hand- (gross, but it's the same idea).
I know that I put up cooked food recipes on the site, and they taste great, but the raw food recipes give me the most energy, radiance and happiness. I know from my own experience that raw food makes me feel and look the best, and it's a direction I have been heading in for years. It's a little difficult to do 100% raw (in my opinion), while living in a country that gets very cold in the winter months, but I eat mostly raw food now anyway.
The photo above, below and beside it REAL JUICE!
It's RAW and freshly made, not boiled :) But you will have a hard time finding it in a store, so you either have to invest in a juicer (what I suggest), or go to a place that specializes in fresh juices!

I am also adding a 12 minute video by Peter Daniel, who wrote the book Rawlicious explaining what superfoods are and why they are so incredible for the body:
