Juicing and the Health Benefits
by Brenda Williams
96 years old and still looks fantastic and as fit as ever. But why is this? It is simply
because he eats right and exercises. I find it both baffling and somewhat amusing
that most people have difficulty grasping this concept. Is it really this easy? Yes, it is.

The problem that goes beyond simply purchasing a juicing machine is that doing so
doesn't automatically give you a one way ticket to being able to say that you are
now officially with the healthy crowd. Instead, the health benefits of juicing come
from not only juicing fruits and vegetables but from also living the rest of your
personal life in a way that mimics that of someone who cares about their overall
health. If you do plan to juice, you should plan on purchasing only those fruits and
vegetables that are organically grown. The last thing that you want to be doing is
consuming produce that has been sprayed with pesticides, etc.

Another great thing about juicing is that you control what goes into it as well as how
much goes into it. For instance, I recently purchased a bottle of V8 vegetable juice
right before my boyfriend came home with our juicer. When I was in the store, I had
looked at the label to make sure that the sodium wasn't too high but was shocked
to find out exactly how high it was. I returned the first bottle of V8 vegetable juice o
the shelf and wound up finding a bottle that was low in sodium. However, when I
read the label on this one after getting home, I realized that it was still full of sodium.

I remember thinking to myself, "Why would they need to add salt to vegetable
juice?" Part of this has to do with the fact that any type of vegetable or fruit juice will
more than likely have a very short shelf life if it isn't treated with some sort of a
preservative. That's part of the beauty with juicing. Last night, I made my own
vegetable juice, and the only thing that was in the vegetable juice were the
vegetables. In addition to juicing, you should also make regular exercise a part of
your lifestyle. If you can, get up early in the morning and go for a brisk walk or a run
and then come back and make yourself some juice. You will feel fantastic in no time,
and your body will thank you!

Recently, my boyfriend and I
purchased a juicer. For a long time, I
had wanted to purchase a juicer
because I had heard about all of the
various health benefits that using one
could provide. But how true is it? Can
owning a juicer really be life changing?

Most people who know something
about health know exactly who Jack
LaLanne is. You see him all the time
on the infomercials late at night
promoting his juicer machine. The
story of his life is one that has been
inspiring people to live healthier lives.
