To Juice or Not To Juice?

Whole fruits and vegetables are great to eat because they have insoluble fibre that helps hugely with gut flora and digestion. As a complement to eating fresh fruits and vegetables, you can also consider drinking fresh juices to get your recommended 7 to 10 serves of vegetables a day.

 Raw Juices can help to eliminate toxins

  1. Juices combat free radicals. Juicing provides the body with a high concentration of living antioxidants which can fight free radicals.
  2. Juices help to fight disease. Juices contain phytochemicals which act as living antioxidants and protectors to prevent diseases like cancer, heart disease and autoimmune diseases.
  3. Juices broaden your exposure to different fruits and vegetables. It’s easy to add extra and new vegetables and fruits to your juice –  For example, toss kale or grapefruit into your morning concoction; each vegetable and fruit has unique healing ingredients
  4. Juices boost your energy. Raw fruits and vegetables provide quickly absorbed nutrients to help your adrenal glands
  5. Juices improve hydration. If you don’t like the taste of water, or drink too much soft drink, fresh juices are the best alternative.
  6. Juicing increases absorption of nutrients. Many people have difficulty digesting certain foods and as a result the body doesn’t absorb all of the nutrients. Juicing helps to “predigest” the food for you, making it easier for your body to absorb the vitamins, minerals and phyto-nutrients.
  7. Juices boost your metabolism. Fresh juice delivers beneficial enzymes found in the produce, which is important for metabolism.
  8. Juices never get boring! There are lots of options when it comes to juice, play with different combinations: Try adding ginger for energy, or beets for cleansing. Adding some fruit will help mask the taste of more overpowering ingredients such as kale or radish.

If you can’t get organic produce, make sure to wash the vegetables and fruit thoroughly with a vegetable wash and then peel it. Avoid anything known to be heavily sprayed (strawberries, blueberries, broccoli).

As for store-bought juices, these are often pasteurized, which increases the shelf life, but deactivates the beneficial enzymes. These bottled juices are often way too high in sugar, so are fattening. Plastic packaging used for juices is not desirable (think BPA etc.), which can be transferred to the juice, especially in hot environs. Consider making your own juice to eliminate these factors, and reduce the use of plastic.
