Juicing



Benefits of Juicing (no pulp) 
Juicing is an easy way to provide yourself with a high level of quality nutrition.

Making fresh juices and drinking them every day is one of the best routines you can develop.
Juices are delicious, nourishing and super-healthy. When you juice, you use more fruits and vegetables than you could actually eat. As a result, you are drinking a densely packed amount of vitamins, minerals and other plant-based nutrients.


1.      Quick nutrition. The nutrients in freshly squeezed/pressed juice enter your bloodstream almost immediately after consumption since there is no fiber for your digestive organs to deal with.


2.      Easy digestion. Because of the lack of fiber the digestive organs do very little work. This is ideal for people with shifty digestive tracts and is great for those looking to cleanse and heal.


3.      Energy! Because of the quick nutrition absorption your body is instantly replenished and revitalized.  Great for Liver detoxification.


4.      No bloating. After chugging a tall glass of juice you still feel light and it will not ruin your appetite. You’ll still be hungry 30 minutes later.


5.      Variety. You can not blend everything. Ever try blending a carrot? It is rough.       

The body can quickly absorb larger amounts of nutrients from juices than from solid foods because the process of digestion that is necessary when you eat whole foods is bypassed.
Raw fruits and vegetables contain many substances that enhance health, and juicing benefits the body by providing the most concentrated and readily absorbed source of these substances.
Another one of the major health benefits of juicing is that it is an easy way to get beneficial enzymes, which are primarily found in raw foods, into the body. Enzymes in fresh fruits and vegetables have the vital role of converting food into body tissue and energy. Enzymes are also involved in metabolism, so one of the more valuable health benefits of juicing is that it can increase metabolic rate. Juicing also ensures that the body is getting sufficient amounts of phytochemicals, substances in plants that are considered among the most powerful ways to fight disease. While most people do not eat enough raw fruits and vegetables to obtain the amount of phytochemicals that would make a difference, it is relatively easy to drink enough juice to obtain sufficient amounts of these powerful nutrients. In addition, antioxidants and other immune enhancing properties are concentrated in juices.

Drink a whole spectrum of rainbow. This means you should consume as wide a spectrum of colors of fruits, vegetables and greens in your juice as possible. Mind you, you don’t have to follow this guideline for EACH and EVERY juice that you prepare, just make sure that you are making juices from produce in all colors over the period of week or month.

Each plant pigment is associated with some special nutritional values: chlorophyll, carotenes, flavonoids – by drinking a variety you ensure the most nutritional benefits.
