Benefits of juicing? Oh, yeah! There’s a reason you see juice bars popping up all over the place, right?
It’s because the benefits of drinking fresh juice are pretty much countless.
Juicing is a great way to give good wholesome nutrition to your cells fast, basically juicing is fresh liquid vitamins.
Juicing is an excellent source of fresh vitamins and minerals because the juicer separates the cells in the produce from the fibrous pulp – leaving the juice. Because juicing separates the fibrous pulp from the liquid it requires little digestion from the body (because it doesn’t have to digest the fiber)
When broken down into such a simple form the body can absorb and assimilate the juice’s vitamins, minerals and antioxidants or “live nutrients” more quickly and efficiently because little to no digestion is required – it’s just pre liquid vitamins!
Freshly juiced produce escapes the pasteurization part of production, yay! The FDA now requires all drinks to be pasteurized, meaning heated.
They do this o try to kill any and all bacteria that might be remaining in the drink, but what most people don’t know is that it also kills the good bacteria (along with the bad) ie: vitamins, mineral, enzymes, antioxidants etc…
When drink is heated at 118 degrees or above the enzymes in it become deactivated (or killed) most pasteurization processes use heat anywhere from 145 to 285 degrees – thus far exceeding 118 degrees.
Now, when juicing fresh juice you need to drink it within a responsible time frame such as a day to two; because, the longer it sits the more nutrients that escape from it. For optimal results drink your fresh juice within 2 to 3 hours of juicing.
Freshly juiced produce is just packed full of the vitamins and minerals necessary for detoxification, and naturally, when you give the body ample nutrients it will automatically dispose of the bad.
You know the saying: “in with the good and out with the bad” That’s pretty much the way it works.
Typically the Standard American Diet does not contain enough fruits and vegetables (mostly greens) So, if this is the diet you are on then naturally you will need a nutrient booster! Juicing can do just that!
Because juicing extracts the fibrous pulp it leaves behind an adulterated form of pure liquid vitamins that the body can easily absorb.
Juicing doesn’t have to be a chore, for those who love to cook juicing is not a far stretch. In fact it’s a great way for you to stretch your culinary skills by pairing different types of produce together to see what different flavors you can come up with.
Any time you feed the body wholesome nutrition it will absolutely help it to regulate everything better. Like smoothies, juicing can replace snacks and also helps eliminate craving because your body is getting the nutrients necessary to satisfy it.
