The Benefits of Juicing
Juicing has many benefits including digestion, immunity boosting and helps with nutrient absorption. Juice has to be fresh in order to optimize the nutritional value. Optimum Nutrition = Optimum Health. Also, fresh pressed juice is made in a “juicer” not a blender. When selecting a juicer choose a model that is easy to clean, has a quality motor that extracts juice from fruits, vegetables, leafy greens and wheatgrass. The one I recommend is the Omega J800C. I have had a few other juicers and this one I feel is the best and their customer service is amazing.
The advantage of juicing is you can consume large quantities of nutrient-rich juice without taxing your digestive systems with all of that fiber. Once consumed, the juice is absorbed into your system in about 15 minutes.
Pressed juice is rich in nutrients, phytochemicals (naturally occurring compounds that have disease-fighting and cell-protective properties) and enzymes.
Unless it is freshly made, most store bought juice is likely to have been depleted of many of its nutrients and lacking in enzymes as a result of storage. Even the organic versions may have been pasteurized to preserve their shelf-life, resulting in the destruction of much of their nutritional value.
Although all juices have many benefits, in my opinion the ‘green’ juices are the best as their high chlorophyll content helps to oxygenate the blood. Green leafy vegetables are also high in minerals such as magnesium, iron and calcium, which are great for ones health. Click here to see other juicers and books on juicing recipes in our Guru Store.
