Health Benefits of Juicing
Juicing – extracting fruit and vegetable juices bursting with pure nutrients that bypass your digestive organs and go right to your bloodstream and your cells where the juice then starts repairing and healing. Sounds like a great thing right?
Extracted juices are high in antioxidants that find and destroy free radicals. In other words, those destructive molecules (free radicals) that weaken your immune system and set you up for disease. In fact, juices can do so much for our bodies.
But it has to be freshly extracted juice. You can’t juice in the morning and let it sit to be finished in the evening. You must drink the freshly juiced fruits and veggies to get the best health benefits!
Here are just some health benefits juicing provides:
Reduce the risk of modern diseases such as cancer, obesity, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, asthma, macular degeneration, and diverticulosis: Antioxidants found mostly in vibrantly colored red, purple, and orange fruits and vegetables. These reduce cell damage and, thus, prevent aging and disease.
Build a stronger immune system by protecting the cells and helping to build white blood cells.
Improve memory: A general decline in mental performance is caused most often by free radical damage. Juicing with fruits and vegetables that are high in antioxidants (such as pomegranates, black plums, blueberries, cabbage, and cauliflower) protects all the body’s cells. For instance, extracted juices keeps the brain from the ravishing effects of unstable oxidizing free radicals.
Increase energy: When you drink pure raw fruit or vegetable juice, no digestive process has to take place because the nutrients and water have already been extracted from the fiber. So, the energy that would have gone into breaking down the food goes to repairing and protecting cells.
Improve sex drive: Raw foods, especially vegetables, contribute to hormone health and a healthy libido.
Cleanse and detox: Fruit juice for cleansing and vegetable juice for fueling and restoring are the best possible drinks for flushing and repairing cells, organs, and systems.
Lose weight: Fruit and vegetable juices are virtually fat free, and juice from vegetables is low in sugar. Drink them on a regular basis and two things happen: You start to lose your appetite for high-fat, high-calorie junk foods, and you start to feel better, with more energy to get up and get active.
