Health Benefits of Juicing

People are learning that the health benefits of juicing are incredible.

Foods that are cooked and processed lose their active, beneficial enzymes.

Enzymes are critical for thousands of chemical reactions in our bodies that take place every second of every day.

Some of these chemical reactions convert food to energy and tissue, help digestion and increase metabolism.

Juices are 'live' and 'raw', therefore the enzymes are intact and absorbable.

Juicing makes it easy to consume extremely large amounts of nutrients.

Phytochemicals / phytonutrients are substances in plants that are known for their disease-preventing abilities.

Juicing removes indigestible fiber, so then nutrients are available to the body in larger amounts, than eating a piece of fruit whole.

For example, 1% of beta carotene is assimilated into our systems from eating a raw carrot; whereas 100% of beta carotene is assimilated from juicing a carrot.
