juices to your diet can be one of the best
everyday things you can do for your health.
This is the case because with juicing you
can take in far more nutrients from fresh
fruits and vegetables than you ever could
just by eating them straight. And these
nutrients both protect us from disease and
boost our health and vitality.
For example, it's easy to consume the
nutrients of a couple of pounds of carrots
in a day if you juice them. And while
carrots are well known to be rich in vitamin
A and help with our night vision, carrot
juice is also a great juice to detoxify the
liver. Vitamin A is also a key nutrient for
your liver then means that your body can
process out more of the chemicals that most
people are regularly exposed to - because
the liver's detoxification capacity then
becomes available. Because your liver is
also your prime fat burning organ,
detoxifying your liver will also mean it's
easier to lose excess weight.
If you add some beets to your carrot juice,
you can also take in hearty doses of
betalains, which raises your body's
detoxification enzymes. This helps your body
process out even more manmade chemicals
which -without detoxification methods -can
be hard to remove. Beet juice in large
quantities has also been known to break down
cancers and tumors.
Cabbage is another vegetable you can pack in
with carrot juice - and it's been found that
folks consuming regular cabbage have far
less cancer than folks who don't. Cabbage
also boosts our body's detoxification
enzymes and helps us remove environmental
estrogens. Environmental estrogens are
chemicals which are often found in plastics.
They fill up the estrogen sites in both male
and female bodies and then our natural
estrogen isn't used, which creates an
abundance of estrogen in the body and
subsequently causes a variety of hormonal
problems. Excess estrogen is also connected
to stubborn belly fat.
Greens of any sort are another favorite
for juicing. Greens are powerful because
they add lots of chlorophyll to the body, a
powerful blood cleanser and blood builder.
Actually, chlorophyll is very similar in
structure to our own red blood cells and
adding lots of uncooked greens in your diet
means your body has the building materials
to produce lots of fresh blood - and it
This is actually one of the best things
about juicing --you can add in lots of
fabulously healthy vegetables that you might
not otherwise include much of in your diet.
And these juices are delicious too. In fact,
if you give them a try for a while, you
might find that they are easy replacements
for soft drinks or other processed
beverages. If you think about it, why would
you choose drinks that are known to create
disease (like soft drinks) over drinks that
are known to eliminate and prevent it?
