Juicing has not been scientifically proven to be better for you than eating the entire fruit or vegetable itself, (without juicing), however how often do you truly eat about six different fruits and vegetables in one serving, or one day, for that matter? Not very often. Juicing is a great habit to incorporate to your everyday family life, and it can be really fun trying out different recipes. You may even surprise yourself at what vegetables you don't like eating normally, but truly enjoy inside your organic morning juice cocktail.
The nutrients your body absorbs from juicing gives you a large list of benefits, which may make you want to head out to the grocery store tonight...
*Your body can absorb nutrients in the juice easier than it can with solid food.
*Juicing reduces the risk of cancer.
*Juicing helps aide digestion.
*Juicing can help you to lose weight.
*Toxins are easily removed from your body through juicing.
*Juicing boosts your immune system
*You will gain an instant energy boost from juicing, which in turn makes you feel better throughout the day.
*Stronger hair and glowing skin is achieved through the nutrients of juicing
*Juicing slows the signs of aging.
Thinking of trying juicing? Here's a few popular recipes to get you started...
GREEN APPLE JUICE
1 handful parsley
3 spinach leaves
KALE GREEN JUICE
3 celery stalks
3 cups kale
VERY BLUEBERRY JUICE
1 cup blueberries
1 broccoli stalk
After all these benefits, who wouldn't want to try a green drink?! Just be sure that if you begin juicing you only prepare enough for what you and your family can digest at that meal. Fresh juice does not keep well and can breed harmful bacteria if left untouched.
