Even though summer has come to an end, consuming vegetable and fruit juices is still a great way to heal the body and ensure that you are getting many of the nutrients your body needs every day. One of the most important benefits of juicing is that it provides a quick way to feed your body in an easily digestible way. Often times we don’t chew our food long enough to break down the cell walls that contain many of the key vitamins and minerals our bodies need. Drinking fruits and vegetables as a liquid gives the body a chance to absorb all of the nutritional elements of these foods. Juicing also aids your body in cleansing by giving your digestive system a much-needed break to restore itself and other organs in your body.
Besides the nutritional benefits of juicing, juicing is also a great way to heal your body from imbalance and aide in the treatment and prevention of health-related problems. For example, cabbage, celery, and lettuce have the ability to stabilize blood sugar.
Berries are good for treating kidney and blood pressure related problems. And bok choy, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, mustard greens, red beets, peppers, garlic, onions, leeks, and chives are just a few of the vegetables that appear to have cancer-preventing phytochemicals. The therapeutic key is in the combination of foods and not in the single entities themselves. A good quality juice that is packed with nutrients has the ability to satisfy hunger cravings and even act as an occasional meal replacement for those on the run.
At this point you may be convinced about the health reasons for consuming juices, but are still curious as to whether juices that aren't fruit-based taste good. The good news is that juices can be made using any combination of fruits, vegetables, nuts, yogurt, and superfoods (maca, spirulina, cacao, goji berries, etc.), guaranteeing that everyone will find a juice that they love. And best of all, the health benefits will make you more beautiful, radiant, and vibrant then ever!
