Busy people who also want to have a healthy diet and lifestyle find that the benefits of owning a juicer go beyond convenience and saving money.
The juice from fruits and vegetables contains vitamins and minerals the body needs to function properly and stay healthy. Enzymes found in raw juice help in the weight loss programs some people follow. Also, cancer experts have found that juicing is a very important element to prevent cancer thanks to the strengthening of the immune system.
Having a juicer in the kitchen makes it easier to stay healthy. Children, the elderly, and pregnant women have the most benefits since all the nutrients obtained from juicing help their bodies to absorb all the vitamins and minerals they need to avoid illnesses and health disorders easily avoidable with proper nutrition. Moms can be sure their children will have their vegetables because they do not have to eat them anymore: they can drink them!
But fruits and vegetables can be enjoyed in more ways than only juice. Smoothies are also a delicious way to stay healthy, especially during the summer when you can have more than one in a day. This also helps in keeping the body from gaining weight because when the stomach feels full, the mind does not bother to send a signal that food is needed because all nutritional needs are already satisfied. This helps in boosting the natural energy of the body and in the reduction of cravings for sweets.
There are several types of juicers to choose from:
1) Commercial. These are designed for restaurants or kitchens that will be making juices or smoothies very often. They can handle large pieces of fruits and vegetables on a continuous basis.
2) Citrus / Centrifugal. As their name indicates, they work with citrus fruits, which have a big amount of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that prevents colds and flu.
3) Wheatgrass. These juicers squeeze out all the nutrients from the wheatgrass, which does an excellent job acting as a body cleanser and neutralizing toxins. Many people also believe that it prevents cancer and increases the possibility of living longer. Wheatgrass juice is considered a natural healer that gives the body a boost in vitality while it neutralizes the toxins accumulated during a period of time.
4) Masticating. These juicers break up fruits and vegetables and the resulting drink is full of enzymes, fiber, and vitamins. They create a very nutritious blend of baby food, fruit sorbets, nut butter, ice creams, and shaved ice. They are heavy duty, but they also allow to make several types of juice, like grading, masticating, or liquid juice. They can handle a variety or recipes, all in one juicer.
Juicing brings many benefits to our overall health and well-being. Now fruits and vegetables can be enjoyed not only as a snack, but as a healthy drink that provides all our body needs to stay healthy, energized, and working properly. It allows us to have a life away from doctors, medicines and, in many cases, from beauty products too.
