Why Juicing Is Great For The Body Jan 19, 2016 by Sarah (Day Styles)
Juicing started as just another health trend, but it’s been around for a while and still going strong today. It’s hard to buck a trend that uses extremely healthy ingredients and helps people live healthier lives. Juicing is something people use to obtain nutrients more efficiently, boost energy, and reduce stress, and there’s not really a downfall to that! There are many advantages to juicing that even the biggest skeptics can’t ignore.
When you juice fruits and vegetables, you’re getting all of the nutrients that they contain just in a liquid form. One of the biggest causes of indigestion is when we don’t chew our food enough, and juicing is a way of skipping the “chewing step” altogether. By skipping that step and using a juicer, the fruits and vegetables have been partially “digested” by the time it reaches your stomach, and so your body doesn’t have to work nearly as hard to pull out the nutrients it needs!\
Detoxify the Body
Juicing does a great job at providing the body with so many nutrients that it helps to flush the toxins out of your system. If you’re looking for a detox program, look for one that provides an excess of nutrients. This is key to a good detox program, and it’s why juicing has become so popular in the last few years. Juices including lemon, grapefruit, or garlic have been shown to help significantly clean the liver and get it functioning as properly as it should.
Juicing can be catered to a series of problems, depending on what you need help with or how you’re feeling. If you’re stressing over something in your life, you can make a juice that will help calm you down. If you’re feeling lethargic, you can find a juice that will help energize you! And if you’re stressed out by the thought of figuring out the proper juice, start by loading up on spinach juice. It’s extremely high in tryptophan and magnesium that both help relax the nervous system naturally.
