Juicing to Boost Your Health
by Piper Cox
today are not 100% juice, they have sugar and other additives, and they have been
processed to the point all the nutrients are gone. So basically you are just drinking a
fruit flavored beverage. This is not considered a serving of fruit or vegetables.
Drink Your Vegetables!
The best way to get the full benefits of juicing is to make your own. You will have
total control over what goes into it and what doesn't go into it! You can be creative
and mix different fruits and vegetables together for unique and delicious juices and
smoothies. Consider adding a handful of spinach leaves or other green vegetables to
a fruit juice for an extra nutritional boost. This is a good way to disguise vegetables
your kids won't eat otherwise. You cannot even taste the spinach in a fresh fruit
smoothie or juice.
By creating your own juice, you will actually start consuming more fruits and
vegetables than you did before. That is because it is so easy to drink your produce!
Not only does it taste good, but juice is easy to take with you on your drive to work.
The Health Benefits
The health benefits you will reap from making your own juice are numerous. A major
benefit being that you are getting all the nutrients found in the produce. Without
excessive processing you will get the full nutrient value of a food. This will be better
for you and your family. In fact, the nutrients you will get from juicing can boost your
overall health immensely. There will be no need to take a multivitamin if you include
more fruits and vegetables in your diet.
In addition to getting more nutrients from your produce, you will help to combat
cellular damage from free radicals. In the world we live in our bodies are continually
bombarded by pollution and toxins. These toxins build up in our cells and contribute
to illness, weight gains, and general sluggishness. Basically your cells are dirty.
Healthy, pure juices help to flush the toxins from your cells and your body. When you
are free of toxins you just feel healthy!
Juicing is Fun and Easy!
Juicing doesn't have to be hard. Most of the juicers on the market today are very
easy to use and all but fool proof! There are many different types of juicers so it is
best to determine what you will be using it for before you purchase. A masticating
juicer will extract the most juice from the produce. Many of these will extract the
juice through both crushing and pressing to get every drop of juice.
The most popular juicers for consumers are centrifugal juicers. These juicers use a
spinning action to pull the juice from the fruit. You will have more waste with these
juicers and they will not be able to extract juice from grasses. You can find juicers
that are made just for grasses, although most masticating juicers will take care of
grasses just fine.
Juicing is a great way to have a healthy diet and boost your overall health. Try it
yourself and begin enjoying the benefits of a diet rich in fruits and vegetables!
