Did you know that when you make juice from raw vegetables, your
body absorbs the nutrients within 15 seconds?
Talk about an energy shot! No need to buy those sugary and chemical-ish concoctions from
your local drug-store or mini mart. Juicing is an all-natural way to boost
your energy and feel amazing. When you juice your fruits and veggies,
you end up extracting all the water and nutrients from them and leave
behind only the plant fibers. By separating the fruit or vegetable from
its fiber, we gain access to all of the amazing vitamins, minerals,
enzymes, and phytonutrients which are much more easily assimilated
by our body than if we were to eat them.
This allows your body to absorb the nutrients more quickly, without
having to digest the dense bulk of the plant. You can also fit an
amazing amount of veggies into a single glass of juice, making it a
great way to use up those extra veggies.
PLUS, you will end up with a glass of deliciousness that packs a
powerful nutritional punch. Although some would also say that the cost
of stocking enough fresh organic vegetables to make daily juices can
be somewhat expensive, my feeling is that if you stop buying all of the
pre-packaged foods/snacks you were buying, you will end up saving
money in the long run on your food AND your doctor bills.
One more thing before I go: while you can control the quality of
ingredients when you are making fresh juice at home, always read
your labels when it comes to buying store-bought juice. These juices
can be high in sugar and have a high glycemic load, which may cause
blood sugar imbalances.
