Our guest author today is writing about the supremely healthy practice of drinking fresh veggie and fruit juices. The super concentration of vitamins, minerals and liquid are a much better prescription for health than drugs can ever be.
Juicing is defined as the process of extracting juice from vegetables and fruits. While the process can be executed by hand, most people today opt to use juicers. This not only saves time but at least it takes all guesswork, deductive reasoning and effort of getting rid of the food pulp, and separating the seeds from the liquid.
It is a well known fact that most people today do not take the right amount of vegetables and fruits in their daily dietary plans. This is despite the high recommendations from doctors and nutritionists that 3-5 servings of fresh veggies and 2-4 servings of fruits taken on a daily basis can help with a myriad of health complications.
Not to be discouraged though, juicing has proven a very effective way of meeting you daily quota of the recommended servings. Following are some of the health benefits that different juices can have on your body when taken on a daily basis.
The first benefit of beet juice is to purify and cool the blood.
Prevents the formation of cancerous growths thanks to its detoxifying effects
Thanks to an active ingredient known as betacyanin, beet juice is also known to detoxify the body, thus help flush out harmful toxins, especially on the liver.
Helps reduce stress thanks to its powerful antioxidant properties
Improve stamina and enhance blood circulation
Not only water melon, but most fruits and vegetables are potent in water. This should come as good news for people who find it hard to take the recommended 8 glasses of water daily. Water also aids digestion, and so is the liquid form of these juices. What this therefore means is that nutrients will be absorbed and digested rapidly and more effectively than if you were to decide to eat the fruits and veggies whole.
Orange/Carrot/ Apple Juice
There is a reason why health conscious individuals today start their day with any of the abovementioned juices. For one, they increase energy. By supplying your body with enough nutrients in the most potent and concentrated form possible, you will highly likely become more productive throughout the day.
They also contain antioxidants and vitamins, and so are most other fresh fruits and vegetable juices. These properties are believed to help fight diseases in the body and boost immunity. If you drink orange juice on a regular basis, then you shouldn’t be surprised to say goodbye to such things as common cold and flu, malaria and other opportunistic infections. This is because of the presence of vital vitamins and nutrients namely Vitamin C, b1, Calcium, potassium, and dietary fiber
With that being said, there are so many health benefits of juicing for the body. Perhaps this is because juicing is easily absorbed in the body, unlike taking the fruits and vegetables raw. The nutritional benefits of juices can also be enhanced by mixing different fruits and vegetable juices together, and so can the taste. Do not be afraid to stretch your creativity and experimentation to the limits, just mix different juices together to gain the most out of juicing.
