Guest Bio: Ray Doustdar
Ray Ray Doustdar is the CEO of BUICED Inc., and the creator of the all new BUICED Liquid Multivitamin, as well as the curator of Everyday Juicer, a website dedicated to helping people add fresh vegetable juicing to their daily lifestyle.

Through fresh vegetable juicing, Ray was able to bring down his cholesterol from 234 to 168 (down 28%) by incorporating juicing into his daily lifestyle.

During this time, he discovered that although the leafy greens are packed with phyto-nutrients, they lack many essential vitamins and minerals.

He tried taking vitamins in pill form after each juice, but they upset his stomach. Then Ray learned liquid vitamins are more readily available for easy absorption, so he decided to solve his own problem and created BUICED to "boost his juice."
6 Effective Steps for Juicing
Juicing has become more than just a trend. For some, juicing has become a lifestyle.

However, it isn't as easy as it may seem. The process is a lot more than just throwing whatever you have in your fridge into a juicer.

For instance, it is important to remember that some veggies and fruits taste different in a juice form than a blended form, like in your smoothie.

If there is someone who knows all the ins and outs about juicing, it's Ray Doustdar, the "Everyday Juicer," who dropped his cholesterol from 234 to 168 in just four months by following a specific juicing regimen. In this segment of Mindful Medicine, Ray shares his six powerful steps to help you begin, or continue through, your juicing experience.
