The power of juicing

Did you know that 95% of the vitamins and enzymes our bodies need are found in the juice of raw fruits and vegetables? We would need to eat 2 lbs of carrots, 10-12 apples, or 8 lbs of spinach to get the same amount of nutrients you receive in one 16 oz juice. Drinking a juice allows vitamins and minerals to rapidly enter the body giving your digestive organs a rest. Here are 10 reasons to juice:

  1. It’s an easy way to meet your fruit and veggie quotient. Many Americans don’t consume enough produce
  2. It boosts your brain.  beetroot juice can increase blood flow to the brain, which can lead to better brain health and help ward off dementia and cognitive decline.
  3. It gives you energy. Because your body doesn’t have to do the work of breaking down solid food, you’re left with energy to spare.
  4. It reduces inflammation. Antioxidants and other nutrients in cold press juice help combat inflammation which are caused by a diet rich in acidic, high-fat, or processed foods. This will help protect your body from deadly diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
  5. It detoxifies your system. . Nutrients found in low-pulp juice help to keep environmental toxins out of your system, keeping you healthier.
  6. It hydrates your body.  It’s like nature’s first vitamin water.
