More absorption. When you drink your fruits and vegetables you absorb up to 80% more of the nutrients. That is a massive amount of minerals, vitamins, etc. that you would otherwise be missing out on.
More fruits and vegetables. People in today’s world are not eating anywhere near the required amount of fruits and vegetables. Jucing them allows you to pack more into your day thus helping your health.
Good for your organs. Juicing your fruit reduces the amount of work your digestive organs have to do and has been shown to increase the health of the liver, kidneys, etc. This kind of thing leads to better immunity and overall better long term health.
Weight loss. If you drink fresh juice you are likely to lose weight. The body loves natural foods like this and responds really well. You also don’t need any sugar and kick start your metabolism without the calories
I’ve started juicing at the start of the year and we’ve been enjoying fresh juice at home most days of the week. What I do is have a “juicing session” at least once or twice a week (usually on weekends) to save myself time and effort.
It takes time and effort to juice. I know other people who started juicing only to get tired of it. The thing with juicing is you still have to cut and peel your raw produce and then afterwards you need to clean up the juicer.
To make my juicing worthwhile, I do it all in one go. I cut and peel my raw produce, then juice them up. Right after juicing, the Husband and I will each have a tall glass of juice as I was told that fresh juice should be consumed within 15 minutes or else it will lose its nutrients.
The rest of the juice are kept in plastic bottles and goes straight into the freezer. So far the most number of bottles I’ve made from a juicing session are from two-three bottles. I drink a bottle of juiced fruits and vegetables during the week, usually from Monday to Wednesday. That’s becomes my dinner. If I drink a bottle of juice for dinner, I don’t eat anymore because it is filling. Other than cutting down on carbs and sweets, drinking juice for dinner twice/thrice a week is a way of giving my body a break from eating solids.
