Eat more Vegetables
People tend to fall well below daily recommended amount of vegetables. Juicing is one way to get nutrients from vegetables. The average juice is likely to contain far more than the recommended daily allowance of veggies.
Most people tend to stick to the same vegetables with meals – potato, cauliflower, zucchini, squash, etc. More rare are vegetables like beet, kale, collard, chard, spinach, ginger, lemon or parsley. All of these have tremendous health benefits and they make great juice combinations.
Makes Body Alkaline to fight Disease
When you eat animal protein or processed foods, your body has to work extremely hard to digest these foods. It releases sodium bicarbonate to break down foods, which in turn creates hydrochloric acid. This builds up, causes heartburn, and even worse, creates an acidic environment in your body in which diseases such as cancer, etc flourish. Juicing gives your body a break from producing these chemicals making your body more alkaline. Diseases cannot thrive in an alkaline environment.
Digestive System Rest
Digesting food takes a lot of energy. By juicing your veggies, instead of eating them means you will get more of the valuable vitamins and nutrients in your body. With quicker absorption, it gives digestive system some rest. The concept of giving the digestive system rest with selective diets or liquid diets is not a new concept and is being followed through ages called intermittent fasting.
It stops diseased cells from replicating, it also makes the environment so unfriendly that anything living there that is unwelcome dies off.
Get Maximum Nutrients and Enzymes
The most important enzymes and micro-nutrients are in raw vegetables and get destroyed by heating and cooking them. So even pasteurized, HPP, canned and jarred vegetables are no match for raw juices that are full of nutrients and enzymes.
Additionally, Juicing helps in
* Healthy Weight Management
* Increased Energy and Vitality Clear
* Smooth and Hydrated Skin
* Strengthens your Immune System
* Regulates Blood Sugar Levels
* Regulates Blood Pressure
* Feeding your cells with vitamins, minerals and essential enzymes
Juices retain most of the vitamins, minerals, photonutrients that would be found in whole versions of those foods. These nutrients can help protect against cardiovascular disease, cancer, and various inflammatory diseases, like rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, crohns disease, pancreatitis, etc. Valuable compounds called flavanoids and anthocyanins are abundant in a variety of fruits and vegetables and guard against oxidative cellular damage, which comes from everyday cellular maintenance and is exacerbated by exposure to chemicals and pollutants.
