Why should I juice?
Whether you’ve just heard about juicing or it’s been something you’ve been doing for a while, juicing is here to stay. It’s not a new idea, squeezing the fruit and vegetables to collect their tasty and nutritious juice rather than eating the whole item is something that has been going on for years. However research into the nutrition is quite new and the results are amazing.
When you juice the items, you are taking away the fibre and just leaving behind the vitamin and mineral laden juice. Drinking this means that your body hasn’t got to work to digest the apple to take away the nutrition, but is passed quickly to the stomach where all of the goodness goes straight into your blood. Latest studies have shown that within just 20 minutes of drinking a nutrient dense fresh juice, the vitamins and minerals are in your blood stream going to the vital organs! Taking away the fibre means that the process in your body is speeded up, but also that you have less to turn into fat. Fibre when not used (through exercise) like many things turns into fat and no one wants that!
Juicing is also a great way to get your body to start to ‘detox’ the chemicals that it may have built up. Many food and drinks contain items that your body becomes addicted to. Here is a list of just a few:
- Bread and Pasta
- And many more!
These items get stored in your body and continue to cause damage including weight gain as well as aches and pains like headaches, joint trouble and lethargy. When you give your body a juice cleanse, you aim to take the above listed things out of your diet and instead replace it with high levels of natural nutrition which the body can use to start to repair damage, as well as causing you to lose weight. This is why so many people finish a cleanse and have not only lost weight, but other aspects of their bodies are improved like better eyesight, less joint pain and shinier hair as the nutrition is in the right place.
