Antioxidants deserve a specific mention when it comes to the benefits of juicing because antioxidants stop us from dying and aging! Read that again. They stop the process of aging. And guess what, you ONLY get antioxidants from fruits, herbs and vegetables. The more fruits and vegetables you consume the more antioxidants you get. And guess what? Juicing allows you to easily consume more fruits and veggies – far more than if you had to actually chew them.
It’s only the juice that feeds us! Yes, that’s right – you effectively ARE a juicer!!! Let’s think about this for a minute. When we chew an apple – we masticate (squeeze and press) the flesh with our teeth, which starts to extract the juice from the apple. As we swallow, the juice and the chewed-up apple enters our stomach. The stomach churns, squeezes and digests the apple extracting ONLY the juice into our blood stream with all its liquid nutrition.
We all know that fruits and vegetables are essential to life, but let’s explore this a bit further. Plants have the ability to harness the light from the sun and produce different coloured fruits and vegetables for humans to enjoy through a process known as photosynthesis.
The #1 health benefit of juicing is MORE RAW. Are you getting enough raw nutrients, raw enzymes and living water into your body?
