Vegetable juicing is a great way to prevent disease or illness or can help as a natural remedy if trouble already exists.
Our bodies need vitamins, minerals, nutrients and enzymes to run efficiently and one of the best ways to nourish the body is buy consuming lots of fruits and vegetables.
It has become a reality that in this fast paced society it can be difficult to consume enough of the healthy foods that we need. After all, how often does your time schedule allow you to eat a crate full of vegetables throughout the day?
But juicing takes a lot of that pressure away because we can juice a healthy cocktail in a matter of minutes.
There is not much difference between vegetable juicing and fruit juicing as they both offer a similar abundance of needed nutrition but vegetable juices also provide your body with chlorophyll.
Chlorophyll is the pigments that make plants green because it absorbs the sun’s energy which help plants flourish. It is just as important in plants as the blood running through our veins.
For humans chlorophyll helps cleanse the blood of impurities and helps strengthen our blood. It also prevents cellular damage from things such as radiation.
Vegetables such as wheat grass and spinach are a great source of chlorophyll but anything green is a winner. You can enjoy green juices or mix a variety of vegetables for a less potent drink.
