The Health Benefits of Juicing

juiceFood fads come and go, but some things become popular because they actually are good for you. Juicing is one of those things. There are many health benefits, especially for vegetarians and vegans, that are reasons to inject some super juicing into your daily routine and diet. Here are just a few of the benefits!

Nutrients

Juicing is like bringing your favorite vegetarian or vegan food right into your own home – in juice form! As a vegetarian or vegan, you may be trying to remove toxins from your body and your diet, but even those who strive to be the healthiest they can be could use a little digestive boost. Juicing allows your body to absorb all of the nutrients from the fruits and veggies you are using. Juicing also packs a nutrient-dense punch! It’s health in a cup, concentrated!

Extra Protection

All of the vitamins and minerals juicing introduces to your body helps to protect against disease. Many people don’t realize that their bodies are in a constant state of inflammation due to their lifestyle choices. Vegans and vegetarians eat healthful and whole foods with few additives, but everyone can use a little help to help ward off inflammation and the havoc it can wreak on the body. Fruits and veggies are packed with nutrients that help protect your body from cell damage that is unavoidable from being in the environment.

Immunity Boost

Sustaining a healthy immune system means you need certain vitamins and minerals. Juicing introduces beta-carotene, Vitamin C and Vitamin E into your system in doses that help your body to resist invaders that can result in the flu, the common cold and a host of other illnesses. Food is medicine, and when you include juicing in your diet you are helping to make your body more impervious to illness.

Think About It

The antioxidants in juices have been found to boost your brain power! Brain boosting foods such as beets, blackberries and blueberries are easy to include in your juicing regimen and they help to increase blood flow to your brain. If you add in some items that are high in potassium such as bananas and coconut water you can take it to the next level.

Choosing to be a vegetarian or a vegan is a choice only you can make for yourself and your health. If you’ve chosen this path then you need to start making your own vegetarian and vegan superfood at home with juicing!
