Juicing your fruits and vegetables has many advantages. It fuels your body with natural foods in the raw form and you get to receive the proper vitamins and nutrients you need to thrive. Juicing simply means blending your fruits or vegetables to liquid form so no chewing is involved. The best way to enjoy these foods is actually by juicing, this method allows the extraction of nutrients that the vegetables contain before you consume them, therefore maximizing their overall benefit to your body.
When you drink fresh-made green juice, it is almost like receiving an intravenous infusion of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes because they go straight into your system without having to be broken down. Here are three reasons why we suggest you should start juicing today:
1. Your body will receive more nutrients: Consuming raw vegetables in their whole form will only give you about 30 percent of the nutrients – and that’s if your immune system is working properly. Since most people don’t chew between 30 and 50 times per bite before swallowing – the suggested amount to completely break down the food – you won’t release the entire amount of nutrients that are locked in the foods you’re consuming. However, by choosing to juice, you can completely break down the cell structure of the raw foods, releasing the nutrients and allow up to 90+ percent to reach the cells in your body.
2. You consume a greater amount of vegetable: Juicing makes receiving the proper nutrients much easier plus there’s a variety of juices you can make! Blending carrots and leafy greens with certain fruits makes a delicious beverage.
3. Your cells will receive nutrients almost instantly: When you choose to eat raw vegetables in their whole form, your body needs time to digest them. However, choosing juice instead basically reduces the work your mouth does, the blending process breaks down the vegetables which in a sense pre-digests them before they even reach your mouth. So instead of waiting hours for the body to absorb the nutrients, it’ll only take minutes.
