Crohns and fruit/veg juice

can any of you drink veg juice (carrot juice, beet juice etc)? I'm relatively new to Crohn's and trying to work out what I can and can't have.

I can drink store bought juice usually with no problems. We bought a juicer thinking it would help me be able to get more fruits and veggies into my system. Well the first glass I drank gave me stomach pains and diarrhea within minutes. I think it was a case of too much too soon. I haven't got the courage to try again, but when I do, I will be watering it down or drinking a smaller amount.

I have made fresh juices in the past. Usually fairly small glasses though. I think that really big glasses might give diarrhea to someone without Crohn's. You also might want to limit the fresh "green" juices as well as beets since these tend to stimulate the colon.

Yes, I drink juice cleanse to stay fit and healthy. In starting it was quite difficult, but day by day I used to it. SInce Juice cleanses enriches with different kind of Superfoods and it has many health benefits such as helping to detoxify our overall body, purify the mind, improve the digestion system, helps to lose weight, gives a unique profile of nourishment and more.

Carrot juice is one of the best things for Crohn's, it has a ton of vitamins, especially vitamin A. If you are not sure, then it's always best to just try a little and see how you tolerate it. But, I have read in several different places that carrots are specifically good for people with Crohn's disease, and juices or smoothies make it easier to absorb necessary nutrients.

I have also tried beet juice and just eating cooked beets, I personally tolerate them well and they are packed with nutrients, but again it's something you have to test on yourself.
