Fruit Juice... Healthy or Unhealthy?
Many people think that 'fruit juice' is good for you.
Store bought, bottled or carton juices are NOT good for you. Most packaged juices have been heated to a high temperature (pasteurized) destroying nearly all of the nutrients. They do this so the juice can sit on a supermarket shelf for as long as is needed without it going off. This high temperature process leaves you with a highly processed, acidic sugary liquid of next to no nutritional value. If you truly value your health do not drink this rubbish and do not let your children near it.
Here's the great news!
Drinking freshly squeezed, cold pressed juices is one of the greatest things you can do for your body. If you're a busy person on the run, you can use a powdered juice but beware... Most powered juices are not like my C.A.B.A.L.A which is 100% natural, and completely bioavailable when mixed with water.
What are the benefits of juicing?
1. Get more goodness (nutrients)
Many people today have a 'faulty' digestive system due to not making good choices with their diet.
When your digestive system is not working at 100% it limits your ability to absorb nutrients. By juicing your fruit and vegetables you have started the 'pre digestion' process - this means you will be absorbing a stack of nutrients rather than them going straight down the loo.
2. More fruit and vegetables in your body
I frequently hear that people find it difficult to eat enough fruit and vegetables. Juicing is the perfect way to get a super dose by simply drinking it - do it daily!
3. Variety is the spice of life
Many people eat the same fruit and veg day in, day out. The same salad, the same stir fry, the same fruit etc - By juicing you will be able to enjoy a wide variety of fruit and veg, even some that that you may not normally like. Beetroot, Carrot, Apple & Ginger is a great combo to try!
4. Heal your temple
Drinking different colours of living juices will help heal each physiological system.
When the body begins to consume the liquid light crystals in fresh fruit and vegetables juices and eliminates solid food, the crystals will help to cleanse your digestive system. The liquid crystals act as a strong solvent in the tubes of the body helping to dissolve the obstructions which interfere with smooth functioning.
A juice fast is a sensational way to finish off a Pulse cleanse or a water fast as it adds a high octane nutrient injection of fruits and vegetables.
Anyway folks, make sure you remember that all juices are not created equal!
