Vegetables and Fruit Juicing Benefits*

Posted by Nabil D. Abdel-Rahman on September 28, 2014 at 3:27 AM

 

THE BENEFITS OF JUICING

If you’ve never considered juicing before, then I’m about to explain to you the reasons why you need to buy a juicer immediately. If you find yourself tired or fatigued throughout the day, have a specific health challenge, want to lose weight or have a better body, or simply want to live longer and have better health – then juicing absolutely needs to become apart of your lifestyle. Here’s why…

Juicing floods your body with vital nutrients, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants for your body to repair itself, strengthen the immune system and for cell growth and regeneration. Your body doesn’t have to spend time digesting the juice, which means you rapidly absorb all of the nutrients within minutes, giving you a unstoppable levels of energy that will stay with you throughout the day.

Many of the nutrients in vegetables and fruits are locked into the fiber of it, therefor much of the potential benefits of the fiber is lost due to the digestive system not being able to unlock it. The benefit of juicing is that it releases the fiber’s nutrition so that benefit may be realized. This is another reason why you also want to invest in a good quality juicer, like the Omega J8004.

Juicing extracts the vital nutrients from the peel, pit and seeds of the fruit or vegetable, which is usually parts of the fruit or vegetable that we do not eat. When you juice, you’re getting the benefit of all these extra nutrients that would otherwise be lost without a juicer.

When you cook or heat vegetables in any way, you’re killing the enzymes in them. By juicing fruits and vegetables and consuming them raw, you’re able to absorb the enzymes in the food, which is one of the most important processes of life and helps you to be able to digest food. Enzymes are involved in everything from thinking to blinking. Many cheap juicers (like the one I had before) actually heats the juice as it shreds it, which kills much of the enzymes. This is another reason why I love the Omega Juicer 8004, as it’s a slow-juicer and doesn’t heat them juice in any way.

By investing in a good quality juicer, you reduce the amount of foaming of the juice, which is indicates oxidation. The less foam that is created by a good quality juicer, the more antioxidants that you will benefit from.

Juicing is a great snack or meal replacement, as it can fill you up, give you the nutrients you need, and easily help you lose weight as you won’t be as hungry. It will also get rid of many cravings that you experience, whether it be for sugar or yeast.

Juicing helps detox and cleanse your body, helping it get rid of toxins, fats, preservatives, and chemicals. As your body becomes more detoxified and “cleaned out”, it will be able to better utilize and access restorative and sustaining nutrients, which will make you feel more naturally energetic and get rid of any health challenges or symptoms.

Juicing has been known to help the digestive system function more efficiently, helping to relieve constipation and reduce the risk of colon cancer. A better digestive tract will help you absorb nutrients from foods better and help you speed up digestion.

I’m not even beginning to scratch the surface of the benefits of juicing. Below, I’m going to share more specific benefits of juicing certain vegetables and fruits, which is important as juicing allows you to benefit from vegetables and fruits you wouldn’t normally be consuming.

JUICING VS. BLENDING

People ask me “Why not just blend the vegetables and fruits, rather than juice them?” and it’s a good question. While I love blending and making shakes, there are certain benefits from juicing that blending doesn’t provide. First, juicing gives our digestive tract a rest, instantly energizes our body, and immediately assimilates vitamins, minerals and enzymes into our bloodstream. On the other hand, when you blend, the fruits and vegetables still contain the pulp and fiber, which requires effort for our digestive tract to assimilate and takes longer to assimilate into our system. While fiber is good for us and helps us cleanse the intestines, the downside of it is that you aren’t able to consume as much as if you were to juice. Juicing allows you to consume a wider variety and more volume of fruits and vegetables at a time without being too full. This has a huge benefit of cleansing the body and providing incredible levels of energy that blending cannot.

I’ve done juicing and blending, and I personally use both. But I prefer juicing for the health benefits and for consuming vegetables. Usually when I blend shakes, I add in protein powder and other elements, along with some berries, a banana, and other pieces of fruit. Sometimes I’ll throw in some vegetables, but it can be too filling and I don’t experience anywhere near the same amount of energy that I get from juicing.



THE BENEFITS OF JUICING VEGETABLES

==================================

   I think it’s safe for us to admit that we ALL would like to get more vegetables in our diet. We know it’s important, but sometimes a salad isn’t that appetizing for us and it can feel like a chore to be consuming salads on a daily basis. Once I purchased my Omega Juicer 8004, consuming vegetables no longer became an issue. Owning a juicer immediately get rid of any procrastination I had towards consuming vegetables and it has now become an enjoyable part of my morning ritual.

One thing that has drastically helped me to WANT to juice and consume more vegetables was simply understanding the benefits I was getting from each vegetable. Below is a list of the benefits of specific vegetables while juicing.

THE BENEFITS OF JUICING FRUIT

============================

     Fruit is fantastic to juice, along with vegetables, but the primary reason why I prefer juicing vegetables over fruit is because fruit contains a sugar called fructose. Fruit is generally good for you, but when you consume large quantities of it you are consuming mass amounts of sugar which can be too much for your body.
