Health Benefits of Juicing #3

More Liquid Nutrition

#3 More Nutrition

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.

A Cold Press Juicer does the same thing! It slowly squeezes and presses the apple, which extracts the juice along with all the nutrition.

If we go a bit deeper, we will understand that it’s only the juice that feeds us – we don’t have little pieces of apple floating around in our blood, we have juice!!!

The juice contains all the antioxidants, phytonutrients, soluble fibres, vitamins and minerals that we need to feed our cells.

The rest of the apple is indigestible cellulose fibre which is eliminated (out our back door/ bowels) just like the pulp is eliminated by the juicer. The cellulose fibres main job is to store the juice which feeds us and promote regular and healthy bowel movements. That is why eating lots of fruits and vegetables is so healthy. It keeps you regular.

 

When you are juicing, however, you are not wanting more fibre you are wanting more liquid nutrition.

Think about how hard a carrot is, you can tap it onto your kitchen bench, and it will make a loud sound and yet it is 87% juice. The juice of the carrot is trapped in the cellulose fibre and is only extracted when we chew it up or juice it.

You can drink the juice of 1kg of carrots and get all the nutritional benefits of the carrot, the beta-carotene, soluble pectin fibres, vitamin K, potassium and other antioxidants because they are in the juice. You wouldn’t sit down and eat 1kg of carrots (unless you really, really love them or you are a rabbit 😊)

It’s amazing to think that it is just the juice which is feeding your body every time you eat.

Want more nutrition in your day, don’t reach for man-made pills and capsules, make yourself a healthy, cold pressed juice and drink it.

By getting more liquid nutrition into your diet everyday your body will be better able to prevent and fight diseases.

I love the saying... ‘Wisdom comes from using the knowledge you learn and passion comes from sharing that wisdom with others’. May the wisdom I am sharing here and my passion for juicing inspire you to drink more liquid nutrition and make juicing a regular part of your daily life!
