Click here to enter our fabulous competition. So, why should we get juicing this year and what benefits will it bring us in 2015?
Whole Fruit Or Just The Juice?
Did you know that 95% of the vitamins and enzymes our bodies need are found in the juice of raw fruits and vegetables? When you drink juice, highly concentrated vitamins, minerals and enzymes rapidly enter the bloodstream absorbing all of the nutritional benefits of the fruits and vegetables and giving your digestive organs a much-needed rest.
Can I Juice In Advance?
It’s best to drink juices the same day they are pressed. As soon as any juice meets the air it begins to oxidize, compromising its nutritional value. The best time to drink juice is on an empty stomach or at least an hour before eating a meal. This maximizes the amount of nutrients absorbed into the body.
The Healing Power Of Juicing…
There is lots of research that shows the healing properties of juicing. Not only will juicing facilitate weight loss, increased energy levels, strengthened immunity, strong bones and a glowing complexion, it may also reduce chances of heart disease, cancer and strokes, three of the leading causes of death. Natural, plant-based vitamins and minerals are more easily and completely absorbed by the body.
Absorb Your Maximum Veggie Intake
Juicing helps you absorb all the nutrients from the vegetables. This is important because most of us have impaired digestion as a result of making less-than-optimal food choices over many years. This limits your body’s ability to absorb all the nutrients from the vegetables.
