Many people discover juicing when they want an easy way to consume more fresh fruits and vegetables. It is hard to beat the large amount of fresh food that you can consume as a juice. Try eating what's in a glass of carrot juice (eight large carrots) and you will be chewing for quiet some time. Imagine all the nutrients you get in a big glass of vegetables juice...
How is juicing good for me?
Vegetables contain various vitamins, minerals, enzymes and nutrients vital to good health. Countless studies have found fruits and vegetables to be loaded with all sorts of disease preventing ingredients. They contain a lot of antioxidants which are disease fighting agents. The best place to get those nutrients is from fresh produce.
Some scientists even believe juicing to be an essential part of fighting diseases such as cancer, high blood pressure and other dangerous conditions.
As more and more people are becoming interested in staying healthy, juicing is becoming more and more popular. Personally, I have been juicing for many years and continue to do it on a regular basis. Juicing allows me consume a large amount of vegetables in one serving of juice which I could never eat and consume in a meal form. Drinking vegetable juice made from fresh produce makes me feel energized and healthy.
Since I started juicing 12 years ago I have noticed a lot of benefits to my oral health. My gums are much firmer and pinker than before I started.
But the benefits have not stopped at oral health, shortly after I started juicing I noticed my skin tone improving, my nails are stronger, and the list continues.
I would like to encourage anyone to start juicing, it is never too late. Juicing is a great opportunity to consume much more fresh fruits and vegetables than you would otherwise.
Juicing is also great for kids who don't eat much fruit and vegetable and tend to drink too much soda. A lot of the juices you can make taste amazing - even to kids!
Another big advantage to juicing is that fruit and vegetable juices are easier to digest when in a juice form rather than whole. Not to mention that eating the same amount of vegetables as contained in a juice would be a lengthy and boring process. Which would you prefer a big plate of cabbage, carrots or kale, or a nice glass of juice?
And since cooking can destroy important enzymes from vegetables, drinking a glass of raw vegetables beats the side of carrots that accompanies your meal.
