Juice Sensibility

Apart from eating many of the wonderful vegetables and fruits that inhabit our planet, drinking them is equally nourishing and satisfying. Juicing vegetables and fruits can also create a dynamic taste treat, causing your taste buds to dance with undiscovered delight. If you're new to juicing, I recommend only juicing vegetables and fruits that you enjoy eating. As time goes on, you can try out other foods as well as increased amounts of those foods.

Concentrated Nutrients

As a dedicated vegetarian, you are well aware of the benefits of eating fruits and vegetables daily. What you may not have known, is that by actually juicing these delicious foods, you are consuming the maximum concentrated benefits of their nutrients. How? Simple, when you cook food, you loose up to 97% of their nutrients. That's quite a loss huh? There are certain precautions and methods towards picking, storing and cooking food, that will minimize the loss of nutrients, but that's another article. Suffice to say, juicing your foods will retain almost a 100% if not all depending on certain circumstances. When you juice, you take raw vegetables and fruits to do the job. Because juicing produces no heat or any other method that causes nutritional loss, you consume high levels of nutrients.

Vital Nutrients

There are some nutrients like certain antioxidants that do an outstanding job fighting lung cancer, stroke and heart disease. By cooking away anywhere from 74% to 97% of these nutrients, you are actually doing yourself a disservice and a potentially lethal one at that. There are other numerous nutrients that also fight disease on our behalf. To consume the entire village, start juicing and drinking them on a regular basis. Nutrients like beta carotene and other carotenoids do great things such as boosting your immunity system.

No Pulp Fiction

It's a known fact that when you juice, pulp remains in the juicer. Over the years there have been many views on what do with that pulp and why. From just discarding it to employing other culinary uses for it. In essence, that pulp contains high levels of fiber and truly should not be thrown out. Fiber has too many benefits to simply dismiss it so easily. Some experts recommend using the pulp in food and others suggest putting some of the pulp back into the juice for greater health rewards. What I can tell you is that the pulp acts as a fertilizer for the good bacteria in the colon and that's a definite plus.

Cheers To Juicing

Well! There are many different views on juicing by many different experts, but no matter the differences, they can all agree on one thing, juicing, whatever the method use, contain far more positives than the many differences and opinionated views varying experts concede to have. Not juicing is a none option in today's world of undernourished bodies and minds. Start juicing and gain the many nutrients that your body craves. A nutrient fortified body is able to prevent and fight off various diseases and ailments that come under attack on a daily basis.
