Which Juice is Best for You?
TO JUICE OR NOT TO JUICE
Juicing vegetables provides nutrients that enable our body to function at its peak potential. It is recommended that adults consume between 7 to 10 servings of vegetables and fruits per day. This can be challenging and impractical for many individuals, even for those who consume vegetables with each meal. So, how can we overcome this challenge?
JUICING FOR YOUR GUT
In order to access the plethora of nutrients that whole vegetables and fruits have to offer, we need to ensure that we have optimal digestion. This is achieved through proper chewing and by maintaining adequate digestive enzymes to break down the food particles so that we can unlock the vital nutrients that live inside these superfoods. Many individuals suffer with impaired digestion, which may be caused by an inflamed gastrointestinal tract. An inflamed gastrointestinal tract can result from chronic toxin exposure, stress, food sensitivities, unwanted bacteria or viruses or medication over-use.
Juicing to the rescue!
Juicing helps break down cells walls where nutrients live, making them easier for our body to access. However, juicing vegetables and fruits removes the fiber from them. So make sure that you receive enough fiber elsewhere in your diet.
TIP: Cold-Pressed Juice ensures that you are getting 100% vegetables and fruits in your juice, with no hidden ingredients!
