Does Juicing really work? At one time that was a question uttered
by yuppies and fringe groups considered “kooks” by the masses. Now
mainstream America is sitting down to unwind with a glass of wheat
grass, watermelon, and cranberry. For a few hundred dollars, and
some patience, anyone can have their own in house juice bar, and
the equipment is not collecting any dust on the shelves either.
Even the National Cancer Institute has weighed in on the question
“does juicing really work?”
Does juicing really work? The National Cancer Institute has been
pushing a campaign to get people to do one thing and one thing
only: consume more fruit and vegetables. These foods are best in
their natural, raw forms. Juicing is a simple, delicious way to
consume these foods without crunching on a carrot stick or a stalk
of celery. There is one reason behind this push by the National
Cancer Institute: a diet high in fruits and vegetables will help
to prevent a wide range of ailments, including some forms of
cancer. Most of these benefits are attributed to the high amounts
of vitamins, enzymes, and fiber in these healthy foods.
In addition to the phytochemicals and antioxidants that fruits and
vegetables provide, juicing helps break the raw foods down so that
the natural enzymes can be more readily used by your body. Enzymes
are your body’s workforce, acting as a catalyst in hundreds of
thousands of chemical reactions that take place in your body every
day. Enzymes are essential for digestion and absorption of
foods,20the conversion of food in the body, and the production of
energy on the cellular level.
Actually, enzymes are critical in most of the metabolic activity in
your body. Because enzymes breakdown when cooked, juicing is the
best source for them. That is one of the reasons that juicing
works. Another is the ease of drinking juice and the flavors that
different ingredients add. Eating celery is bland and boring, but
some wheat grass, kale, and strawberries can add a little zing into
your morning ritual.
Does juicing really work? Yes! It helps to provide the
recommended 3 servings of vegetables per day. If you add fresh
fruit to your juice cocktail, you can get the needed 5 servings of
fruit, also. The anti-cancer, high fiber aspects of a diet that is
high in fruit and vegetables are of great value to a nation that
has an overall unhealthy lifestyle of poor eating habits and a lack
of exercise. These benefits can be increased by adding an exercise
regimen to your daily routine. Something that involves 15-30
minutes a day will increase your health and vitality without
crunching the time in your day.
I highly recommend juicing to all my clients. It is quick and easy.
Use a variety of vegetables and fruits. The one I personally drink
the most is carrot, beets and parsley. It may not be your taste but
find a good one that fits you. I have many if you want to e mail me
personally. I also am looking to another product that blends 19
fruits, including açai berry from brazil being the main ingredient.
It is a super anti oxidant and more on this product in a future
