Tired of being exhausted? Feeling sluggish at work? These are symptoms from the body telling you that your body is lacking important nutrients! In order to gain these nutrients and to know 100% you are getting all the right nutrients you need, a healthy diet must be part of your daily lifestyle.
We all know that it is very tempting to grab a high carb, fast and easy lunch but you can do this and still get the nutrients you need by up taking a daily habit of juicing! Throw out your food journal and your 2 hour-long recipe books and start filling your grocery carts with organic vegetables and fruits.
Juicing is the easiest way to get all the nutrients you need quick and easy, and the taste is better than any vegetable cooked. You can juice anything from carrots to butternut squash, zucchini to grapes and any other vegetables you love. Grab some fruits and mix them in too to get a great refreshing taste. Eating right could actually save your life!
Why juice is better than vitamins and cooked vegetables
The reason juicing does the body good is because it takes far less digestion than any other food item out there. By having a quick digestive meal, the nutrients will reach into your tissues and expand throughout your body in the matter of minutes. Wait 30 minutes after every juice before eating or drinking anything else besides water and you will feel a jolt of energy higher than any cup of coffee you drink.
Another great advantage of juicing is that it detoxifies your body. By drinking juice on an everyday level you are constantly releasing your body of any harmful toxins or chemicals that reach your body that shouldn’t be there. Detoxifying will pure your body and give you a great new look through your skin, eyes, hair, blood, energy, and mind.
This densely packed nutrient cup will also improve your cardiovascular system and heart, decrease your chances of disease (including many types of cancer), and keep your body looking lean and clean! So why not grab a cup now and start juicing!
