The Truth About Juicing And Your Health

Juicing:

Juicing is a method of extracting juice from plant tissues like organic vegetables and fruits. There are many techniques of juicing. Fruit Juicing is the most popular technique used by people and is usually done with an appliance referred as a “juicer”.

Health Benefits of Juicing:

Fruit juicing is a very good approach if you are not interested in eating whole fruits and vegetables in a preferable portion. It can be a part of your healthy diet and can help you in meeting daily requirement of nutrients in just a single drink. Liquid food can digest more easily and requires less energy. It gives rest to your digestive system by less working on solids because it is easier for your body to absorb nutrients than fibers. It improves your digestion and immune system, eliminate toxins, reduce risk of cancer and help in losing weight. Juicers are expensive especially those which remove seeds and skin. You can also use blenders instead of juicers.

BUT!

To live on juices alone is not a good approach. According to many nutritionists, it is not as healthy as eating whole vegetables and fruits. Juices contain minerals, vitamins and other chemicals but we also lose healthy fiber during this process. Vegetable juicing is healthier than fruit juicing. Solid food needs many hours for digestion before it nourishes the tissues and cells of our body. By extracted juices from vegetables we can nourish our body with all nutrients we need. We destroy some essential minerals by cooking vegetables. You should make as much quantity of fresh juice which you can drink immediately because harmful bacteria can develop quickly in it. When juicing, do not throw the pulp and try to keep some portion of it in your juice. If you are buying from a shop then buy pasteurized juices.
