Do you ever feel like you want to eat more vegetables, but don’t know how to incorporate them in your diet? Well, juicing is the answer, people. Juicing is a great way to add a boatload of nutrients to your diet in a quick and efficient way. Drinking freshly made raw juice can help give your body extra fuel and a healthy boost.
Making the jump to juicing is an investment. We are going to let you in a secret, though. If you don’t want to buy a juicer, you can make fresh smoothies and get the same benefits (plus a bunch of dietary fiber) by blending all of the ingredients. But if you’re the kind of person that likes a smooth and light juice, go ahead and get a juicer.
Let’s be clear: juicing is not the only way to stay healthy. It also doesn’t balance out the junk food or processed foods you eat. Juicing is just a great way to channel your life in a healthy direction. Considering that most health officials say that it is good to get about 6-8 servings of fruits and vegetables every day, juicing can almost guarantee you those servings.
There are some awesome benefits of juicing, the number one being that it can help to nourish and heal your organs. Different vegetables contain vitamins and minerals that can be beneficial for your heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, and your skin. These organs are vital in carrying out your body’s primary functions. If one or more of your organs is functioning improperly, your body will suffer. This is where juicing or cleansing can come to save the day.
Not everyone is aware of all the benefits of every fruit and vegetable. It’s pretty hard to retain all that info. So we’ve decided to give you a few juice recipes that’ll help out your major organs, because they deserve all the help they can get. All you have to do is process the ingredients in a juicer and drink the juice. It’s that easy.
