Fresh fruit and vegetable juices are the quickest most efficient way to pack a hefty dose of nutrients into our bodies. They require no digestive energy from us and can therefore be instantly absorbed into our bloodstream. It would be very taxing on the digestive system, not to mention time consuming, to try and eat our way through six to eight servings of fruits and vegetables!
Juicing allows us to ingest optimum levels of essential vitamins and minerals in a quick and convenient manner. A glass of fresh pressed juice can be sipped on your morning commute or stored in the office fridge and whipped out to combat the 3pm energy slump.
Including just one glass of fresh pressed juice into your daily diet can have amazing benefits on both your internal and external health. Many juice advocates report improved digestion, mental clarity, increased energy levels, clearer skin, and an improved overall sense of wellbeing!
They are rich in vitamin C, which contributes to a healthy immune system as well as boosting collagen production for a smoother and plumper complexion. The antioxidant vitamin A can help to improve skin tone and texture giving you a natural healthy glow.
The live enzymes which are present in fresh pressed juice can help to improve digestion and the iron rich, dark green leafy vegetables can increase energy levels and help regulate the body’s hormones. This in turn can improve sleeping patterns and boost mood. Minerals such as silica, which is present in cucumber, can help to hydrate and plump our skin’s top layer meaning that fine lines and wrinkles can appear reduced.
In this busy modern world our bodies are under constant stress from all sorts of environmental and external toxins. Working long hours, surviving on little sleep and not taking the time to properly digest our meals all contribute to internal inflammation. The result of adding fresh pressed juices is often effortless weight loss, a reduction in allergy symptoms, fewer colds, clearer skin, improved moods, and a renewed vitality!
