To achieve better overall health here are 5 juicing benefits.
The body will experience greater amounts of energy in two ways. Firstly, through the increased intake of nutrient rich foods such as fresh fruit and vegetables. These are full of nutrients and when taken in juice form, the nutrients are preserved and not lost. Heating up the ingredients through processes such as cooking or pasteurizing will invariably lose over half the nutrients. Simply by adding a fresh juice to your daily diet, you will be adding to your nutrient levels and then greatly increasing your energy levels.
The second way that you will experience greater levels of energy is in the way that existing energy is NOT used. By making a juice, you are giving the body something that is very easy to digest because the foods are already broken down so the stomach acids do not need to do that. Also, by juicing, you are removing the fiber content of the food. Without the fiber, the food is much easier to digest as the body does not need to separate out the fiber from the rest of the nutrients. So this all result in less energy being used up in digestion (not breaking the food down and removing the fiber) which means that it can be put to other uses.
The juice is absorbed very quickly. Try drinking on an empty stomach and the digestion will happen very quickly. Also the juice has digestive enzymes built in that help in the absorption of the nutrients. Juice is a nutrient dence food without fiber (which will only slow down the digestion). If you are worried about getting enough fiber, there really is no need because you will get the fiber from other things in your diet. You do not have to worry that you will not be able to eliminate. Your intestine and colon will have its peristaltic motion and be not affected.
Freshly made juice really does quench your thirst. People are generally chronically dehydrated. Drinking more water is one thing, but there are not many vitamins or minerals in water. Drinking high water content juices such as cucumber or celery will be very hydrating and give you a greater amount of nutrients. Cucumber has plenty of Calcium, Iron and Magnesium and the majority of B vitamins. Celery is a good source of calcium and Vitamin C.
Better skin, nails and hair
Vitamins and minerals are the building blocks of life. To get better looking skin, stronger nails and vibrant hair you need to build them up. Nutrient dose juice like the freshly made variety are full of these vitamins and minerals.
Not strictly an appetite suppressant, but drinking juices will mean taking in less calories a day. If you take in less calories than you burn in a day, the simple equation is that you will lose weight. Many people are very successful in losing excess weight when they introduce freshly made juices into their daily diet. You can take it any level that you feel comfortable at such as one glass of freshly made juice a day, two glasses or even going on a complete fast from solid food and only having fruit and vegetable juices. There are certainly fast benefits, but often juicing will be more approachable at first.
I hope you enjoyed reading about these juicing benefits and feel inspired to include freshly made juice in your daily diet.
