Benefits of Juicing
Juicing, in one form or another, has been around for centuries and while mechanical and electrical developments have made it easier for us to juice, the benefits remain the same!
It’s ironic that today’s population eats more than we ever have before but the fact is, we’re all seriously overfed and undernourished. Juicing is the simplest way to furnish your body with fruit and vegetables while retaining 95% of the finest nutrients – vitamins, minerals, amino acids, carbohydrates, anti-oxidants and enzymes are just a handful.
Even if every meal were to be made up of solely plant-based food, there is still no way that you would get the same amount of nutrients that you get from juicing. This is because the vast majority of our digestive systems are so sluggish and overburdened with toxicity that we cannot fully extract and utilise all the goodness from the food we eat.
And while the modern perception is that juicing mainly aids weight loss, that is not the case. Of course, the flushing out of your system and lack of edible and processed food certainly sheds the pounds (which alone leads to a healthier and more active life), but there are many other and well-documented benefits that can improve your overall health for the long-term.
Here are just 9 benefits of juicing…
- Detoxifies the body
- Builds a stronger immune system
- Improves sleep
- Increases energy levels
- Strengthens joints
- Clearer skin
- Improves digestive system
- Lowers high cholesterol
- Lowers blood sugar levels
So it’s no surprise that natural juice therapy is often used for the treatment and prevention of virtually all common ailments, from high blood pressure and arthritis to more serious health conditions such as heart conditions and even cancer.
Yes, you’ll feel lighter, but you’ll also feel leaner and cleaner!
