Juicing for Better Living

Juicing For Better Living

Why Juice?

Fresh juice provides us with many essentials: minerals, vitamins, essential fatty acids, proteins and much more. All of these factors are vital to maintaining good health. You will find that when you make fresh juice a daily part of your diet, you will have increased energy, a glowing complexion, strengthened immune system, stronger bones and a reduced risk of disease. Isn’t that amazing!  It is recommended that you drink at least 16 ounces of freshly squeezed juice each day.  I wonder how many people actually do this.  Did you realize the benefits of juicing?

Although eating fruits and vegetables in their natural state does provide us with a substantial amount of vitamins and minerals, we only obtain the maximum benefits from them when they are juiced. Much of their goodness is locked in the fiber which is expelled from the body. When we juice the fruits and vegetables, their goodness is released from the fiber and we are able to drink their highly concentrated nutrients.  Juicing enables the nutrients to enter our bloodstream very quickly.  

Benefits of Juicing

  • Juices can flush toxins from your body, are good for your weight, heart, circulation and overall well being
  • Digesting the juice is rapid as compared to your stomach having to break down the foods
  • Juicing fruits and vegetables causes you to consume more than you would if you had to actually eat them
  • vegetables are alkaline and fruits are acidic– our bodies need to be more alkaline to prevent illness and disease

How do I get started?  What do I juice?

*While it can be ‘expensive’ to juice,and use Young Living Essential Oils, yet how ‘expensive’ is your health?

**Please not that you need to hand wash and scrub your fruits and vegetables prior to juicing.  Some fruits and vegetables need to be skinned/peeled, some seeds need to be removed, and organic is always better!
