Fruits and vegetables are a wonderful source of countless vitamins, minerals, live enzymes and phytochemicals, which have been shown to fight cancer. Juicing is an excellent way to add fruits and vegetables to your diet. As juice contains the entire fruit or vegetable, with the exception of the fiber, it contains all the life-giving parts of the plant. Because you are juicing raw fruits and vegetables all the nutrients remain intact, and you are getting the full health benefits of the plants.
Another important health benefit of juicing is that it is in a form that is easy for the body to digest and absorb. This is important for two reasons: 1) it takes the workload off the body, so it doesn’t have to work so hard at digesting, and 2) you feel the results of the juicing almost immediately. People who juice nearly always report a boost of energy that lasts much longer than a cup of coffee, and is much healthier.
The health benefits of juicing are countless. Juices made from green vegetables, such as spinach, cabbage, broccoli, wheat grass and kale are rich in chlorophyll, which helps to build red blood cells, aid in purification of the blood, and to detoxify and heal the body.
The juice of cucumbers contains silica, which is essential for healthy skin and hair, and also strengthens connective tissue. It is important when juicing cucumbers to leave the peel intact, as the majority of silica is found in the peel. Be sure to wash thoroughly before juicing.
