If an apple a day keeps the doctor away…
Then juicing every day will definitely keep your doctor far, far away!
Read on to find out the incredible benefits of juicing for natural health!
What Is Juicing?
Juicing is the act of extracting the natural juice from vegetables and fruits using a juicing machine. This process makes a health-giving elixir that is instant nutrition for your body and mind.
Juicing removes any solid parts of the vegetables and fruits so that you are left with a nutrient dense liquid that has many incredible health benefits.
10 Benefits of Juicing for Natural Health
1. Gives Your Immune System A Super Boost
-Fresh juice made from vegetables and fruits is loaded with nutrients that nourish you from the inside out.
-These nutrients flood your body with “good” bacteria that help suppress the “bad” bacteria that cause disease and illness.
2. Makes Getting Your Daily Dose of Fruits and Veggies EASY
-Studies show that less than 20% of people are eating at least 5 servings of fruits and veggies on a daily basis. Juicing is a simple and EASY way to increase your daily plant consumption!
-Making and drinking juice (often referred to as green juice when made with primarily veggies) ensures that your body is getting it’s daily vegetable and fruit intake.
3. Vitamins, Phytochemicals, and Enzymes - OH MY!
-Fresh veggie and fruit juice is chock full of them - all of which get absorbed into your body with each and every sip.
-Consider drinking a glass of juice like taking the highest quality multivitamin on the planet!
4. Enhances Your Energy
-Juicing allows your body to rapidly absorb nutrients, which gives you an instant energy boost within moments of drinking it.
-Juice is not only nature’s candy… but also nature’s all natural energy drink!
5. Restores Your Body’s pH Balance
-Your body is meant to be slightly alkaline. However, poor lifestyle and food choices can make your body become acidic:
*MANY diseases thrive in an acidic environment (such as cancer)
*Acidic = Poor health
*Alkaline = Good health
-Green juice helps optimize your body’s pH level and restore a health pH balance
6. Improves Digestion
-Mostly by giving your digestion a well needed rest!
-Your body is hard at work every day breaking down the food you eat. Juicing gives your digestion a break, but still provides it with endless vitamins and minerals.
7. Reduces Inflammation In Your Body
-Juicing helps naturally remove waste and toxins from your body.
-As a result you may lose any water retention and excess weight.
8. Supercharges Your Brain
-As the juice is absorbed into your bloodstream it floods your body with superfood brain-protecting nutrients such as vitamin K, potassium, lycopene, and vitamin C
-These nutrients keep your nervous system and brain functioning at its best.
9. Works As A Stress Buster
-Do you know vegetables have the power to enhance your mood and help you sleep better? THEY DO!
*This effect is compliments of tryptophan, which is found in high levels in spinach.
-Vitamin C in fruits and veggies also helps to fight against stress’ negative effects.
10. Gives You Glowing Skin

-Drinking juice helps prevent the formation of wrinkles and acne and the vitamin C content in fresh juices rejuvenates your skin cells.
