Juicing has always been popular way of getting in those important nutrients and enzymes. It has however, come a long way since plain
orange juice. Today there are an array
of combinations and variations.
Depending on the combination and depending on the type of juicer,
juicing is a great way to saturate your body with important vitamins, minerals,
antioxidants and other nutrients.
Juicing can make you feel more energized and may be able to combat a cold more
Juicing is the process of squeezing or pressing out the
juice of the fruit or vegetable leaving behind the pulp. The juice enters your bloodstream more
quickly than eating a piece of fruit or vegetable. This is because it doesn’t have to go through
the digestion process therefore giving your organs a rest while at the same
time delivering all important nutrients that your body needs and craves daily, to your cells.
There are many combinations to those juicing recipes. It is important though to maximize the
vegetable load and minimize the fruit load.
However, if you would like a bit of sweetness to your
drink, fruit should be added. One apple or orange can add a
load of sweetness to your juice. It is
especially important if you have health issues like diabetes, overweight,
obesity, to limit the amount of fruit you add to your juicing.
It is important to recognize that juicing is not a complete
meal. Juicing should be used in addition
to your food, not in replacement of it.
Further to that, juicing does not contain any fibre as the fibre is
taken out during the juicing process. It
is therefore important to still consume enough fibre during the day.
