The Benefits of Juicing

November 24th, 2007 at 01:13pm Under Why Juice?

Juicing is a process that separates the juice from fruits and vegetables from the pulp.  The removal of fiber enables the body to absorb large amounts of vitamins, minerals, food enzymes, and antioxidants with minimal effort.  The energy and enzymes that are not needed for digestion and assimilation can then be used to cleanse, rebuild, and repair.  Enzymes are the life force of food, responsible for every chemical reaction that occurs in every cell of your body.  They are destroyed in foods that have been cooked or processed.  We have a finite amount of enzymes and when they begin to run out, we start to see the signs of aging and increase our chances for disease. Juices are best consumed upon rising when the body is in cleansing mode, but if this is not convenient for you find a time that works best for your lifestyle.  Start out with 6 ounces per day and gradually build up to 16 ounces.  In time, you will begin to experience the many benefits of juicing including, increased energy levels, weight loss, stronger immune system, and healthier skin, hair and nails.  

Please see my Juicing Recipes page for some of our favorite recipes.  FYI Fiber is essential for health and proper elimination, so continue to eat raw fruit, vegetables, and legumes in conjunction with your juices to keep your body in balance.
