Juicing and the Health Benefits

Juicing and the Health Benefits

 Why is drinking fresh pressed juice so much more popular now than the bottled variety from the supermarket? Well, there is in fact a HUGE difference, and it may be time to break out of an old habit and try something new that is not only good for you but delicious as well!

Juicing has become more and more popular because we are realizing that we are not getting the nutrients we need from the foods we eat in today’s world, and freshly squeezed juices bring a huge kick of easily absorbable vitamins and nutrients.

  For example, The National Cancer Institute recommends eating five servings of vegetables and three of fruits each day. However, the average person eats only 1 1/2 servings of vegetables and less than one serving of fruit per day. Juicing is an excellent way to incorporate more raw fruit and vegetables into the diet easily and quickly. 

Raw juice, and consuming the recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables is the best way to fight and prevent cancerheart disease and many other threats to health.

To start with, it is an amazing way to detoxify and cleanse your body. Your body works hard every day, digesting and processing all the food you consume, plus all the other stresses you put on yourself that your body has to deal with.  Since fresh juices have already been pre-digested (the fibre has been removed), drinking fresh juice regularly can give your body the break it needs to focus on healing other parts of you that it otherwise doesn’t have the time or energy to address.

Juicing also gives you a mega-concentrated hit of vitamins and antioxidants that are immediately absorbed by your body – giving you instant benefits!

With very little effort, you can drink the juice of far more vegetables than you could ever manage to eat at one time. You can even sneak in vegetables that you don’t really like, as it is very easy to cover them up with stronger-flavoured fruits or vegetables. Over time, drinking fresh juices actually re-formats your taste buds, and you start to naturally feel attracted to eating a wider variety of fruits and vegetables – even the ones you previously disliked!

Juicing can also help you lose weight. This happens not because you are eating less solid food, but because once your body gets the extra nutrients it has been waiting for, your cravings for the unhealthy options naturally begin to fall away.  You are effortlessly drawn to foods that are good for you, and in the right quantities. It helps to change your eating habits in an easy and tasty way!

Benefits:

  • Give you a mega-shot of vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants.
  • Reduce Inflammation.
  • Aid in weight loss.
  • Clear up your skin.
  • Detoxify.
  • Cleanse your colon and other major organs.
  • Give you energy!

Most juice you buy in the supermarket is made from concentrate, and has added sugar and countless other chemicals, preservatives and colours. If you do manage to get a 100% juice drink, it has most likely been pasteurised – a process that kills most of the vitamins and nutrients, and delivers high sugar content from the fruit itself. It may taste great, but it does not contribute to your health.

If you feel put off by the financial investment, consider this: You don’t hesitate to buy an expensive pair of running shoes, and maybe the appropriate clothing .

Why not invest the same (or less) amount of money in your body that will give you as much, or maybe even more benefits to your health?
