The Benefits Of Juicing: Top Reasons Why Juicing is so Good For You!

There are so many health benefits to drinking fresh juice it would be impossible to list them all.

Juicing is a great habit to acquire. Raw, live, fresh fruit and vegetables have so many beneficial effects on the body.

Ideally, we should all drink at least one glass of freshly pressed green vegetable juice every day.

The top three main reasons why juicing is so beneficial, in my opinion, are:

(1) Highly concentrated nutrition


When you juice, you use more fruits and vegetables than you could actually eat.  So, when you drink the juice form of the fruit and vegetables you are receiving highly concentrated nutrition, which means the amount it would normally take to fill you up wouldn’t have anywhere near as much goodness.

As a result, you are drinking a densely packed amount of vitamins, minerals and other plant-based nutrients.

Using juices and other easy to digest foods as a way to intake vitamins and minerals has always been used, but never studied and utilized like it is today. Medical professionals like nurses who stay with their patients a majority of the time are using these methods more and more. RN to BSN Online programs are now covering this as a method that should be learned and utilized in their practices.

(2) Easy absorption

The juice requires hardly any digestion, so all its nutritional goodness gets quickly into your system without your body needing to do any work.

(3) Liver detoxification

One the critical functions of the liver is to clean the blood and remove toxins and metabolic waste.  With the amount of toxins we are dealing with everyday in modern life we need to be real diligent in helping to keep it “clean” so it can keep us clean!

Specific nutrients are required to allow the liver do its cleansing job. Antioxidants beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E, and N-acetyl cysteine are potent liver cleansers. In addition, B-vitamins riboflavin and niacin also aid liver cleansing.  Cabbage, Brussels sprouts and cauliflower have been found to be great for the liver.

Many people like drinking fruit and vegetable juice to detoxify their bodies for a few days every month or a day or two a week: this means they have nothing but fresh juices, fruit, fresh vegetables and water for the detoxification period.

Since the enzymes in the fruit and vegetables are still buzzing in their uncooked form, fresh juice is pure energy to support our natural life force.

Other benefits include:

(4) Increased energy levels

(5) Improved immune system

(6) Helping with healthy skin, hair, nails and eyes

(7) Rebuild blood cells

Benefits of juice that is freshly made far outweigh those offered by bottled juice, and are well worth the time and effort that is required.

A fresh juice is made using a juicing machine called an extractor or simply a juicer. A juicer is a blender-like processor that removes the pulp and filters about 90% of the liquid matter into a cup or jug.

The fact is almost all fruits and vegetables can be juiced. Fruits and vegetables that are most commonly used for fresh juice include: apples, oranges, lemons, watermelons, grapes; root vegetables, such as carrots, beets, burdock root, radishes; as well as green vegetables: celery, cucumbers, spinach, kale, and other.

Keep in mind that fruit juices and most root vegetables are very concentrate source of sugar, so make sure you include lots of green vegetables if you have blood sugar or weight control issues.

You may also like to include a small amount of fresh ginger or garlic for more spicy taste and an immune system boost.

Depending on your individual taste preferences, different combinations can be used for creating unique flavors. Some juicers will take a whole granny smith apple without requiring any coring, where others need fruit and vegetables to be chopped into smaller pieces so they can fit through.

Benefits of Juicing

While cooked and dried fruits and vegetables have nutritional value, it is small in comparison to fresh juice.

A good way to start with fresh juice is to do a a detoxification for a day or two initially to clean your system out and relax your digestion.

Then you can start your new routine of having one fresh juice first thing each morning or perhaps even one with breakfast and lunch , whichever you prefer.

Buying a Juicer

If you don’t own a juicer, it’s an investment in your health that you may want to consider. I use Breville juicer, but there are many inexpensive juicers available online.
