Juicing is one of the best things you can do for your body and your overall health. If you have never considered juicing, you should definitely think about it. If you have already been juicing, you may want to consider amping up your juicing. So why do I juice? I’ll give you four reasons.
1. Juicing provides low-calorie nutrition.
Vegetable and fruit juices (particularly vegetable juices) are very low in calories compared to other foods that contain the same minerals and vitamins. A cup of kale, for example, has 33 calories. So you can put four cups of kale into your juicer and that’s only 132 calories. Finding low-calorie nutritional foods really helps with losing weight or just being healthier in general.
2. Juicing gives you concentrated nutrients.
For most people, the fact that they should be eating a lot of fruits and vegetables throughout the day is well known. But most people really don’t want to spend the time that it takes to steam them or cook them. Or people don’t like the taste of veggies. Combining them with fruit is helpful. So when you juice, you are getting a dose of all of the micronutrients that veggies and fruits provide, but you don’t have to find ways to fit them into your busy life.
3. Juicing helps you to detoxify your body.
Vegetables and fruits are full of antioxidants and also anti-inflammatory compounds that support the natural detoxification processes in the body. The amount of toxins that a person has in his or her body can vary depending on the food he or she eats, how much exercise he or she gets, the quality of air in his or her environment, and the kinds of chemicals he or she is exposed to. When you juice, it helps you to get rid of the cumulative toxic substances that are stored in the body.
4. Juicing gives you more energy.
Most people feel a major difference in their energy levels when they juice. Juicing floods the body with the nutrients that are in an easily digestible form. They are quickly absorbed in the body, which gives you energy.
So what are you waiting for? Now is the time to try juicing.
