Vegetable Juicing - Your Secret Weapon Against Aging and
Disease by Sandy Halliday
has the most enormous impact on your health.
How do fresh vegetable juices work?
Although juicing is no substitute for eating the whole vegetable it can work wonders
for your health. They are great for alkalizing the body and have a great health
building effect. Organic vegetables are loaded with chlorophyll, minerals, vitamins and
amino acids. It's a great way to pack tremendous amounts of nutrients into your
body that are free of pesticides, preservatives and other toxins.
With years of less than healthy eating many people have compromised digestion.
Vegetable juices need very little digestion and are are rapidly taken up by the blood
which carries the nutrients around the body nourishing and revitalizing your cells.
Naturopaths and other healers have been using various form of juicing as the basis of
healing regimes for many hundreds of years. Their patients recovered from all
manner of diseases including cancer when they were put on a diet that consisted
largely of fresh juices.
What's wrong with carton or bottled juice?
There is such a huge selection of juices in the supermarkets you might wonder why
you should go to the bother of making your own. Ready made juices are probably
better than no juices at all but you won't get the benefits of all the enzymes and
nutrients that are in fresh juices.
If you don't drink juices within a couple of hours of making they start to lose vitality
and nutrients. Enzyme activity starts to reduce the longer the juice is left to stand.
Many commercially made juices are pasteurised or sterilized to give them a longer
shelf life. Fresh food has a "life force" that is not present in processed or stored food.
Chlorophyll magic of Green Juices
Chlorophyll is the magic substance in green vegetables. It is very similar to the
"heme" of hemoglobin in human blood and is said to be the "blood" of plants. It
carries oxygen around the body which helps cleanse it. Chlorophyll helps to
strengthen cells and removes toxic, synthetic chemicals and heavy metals.
How to get started
Green juices have a certain flavor that might take a bit of getting used to but it is
easy enough to remedy. Adding an organic apple or a few organic seedless grapes
will transform the taste. Children love them made with enough strawberries or
raspberries to make the drink red. Add some stevia, a natural sweetener, if
Use the milder tasting green leaves like red leaf lettuce, green leaf lettuce, Romaine
lettuce, Lamb's quarters or Escarole to begin with. Try juicing celery and cucumber
too. Add watercress or arugula (rocket) to give it a bit of pep.
Then experiment with green cabbage leaves, Chinese cabbage, Bok choy, spinach,
parsley or cilantro (fresh coriander). Once you get used to the flavor you can try
more bitter leaves like Collard greens, Kale, Mustard and turnip greens Give them a
zing with freshly grated root ginger, garlic and radish.
Carrot and beet juice
Carrot juice and beet juice have become favorites because of their sweetness but
they can raise blood sugar quickly enough to trigger an insulin response. This can lead
to health problems so it's best to avoid these on a regular basis.
Health isn't something that can be turned on or off over night. It's what you
consume every day that counts. Get vegetable juicing and feel the difference.
