Juicing-for-Health.com features this highly interesting article about juicing vegetables and the benefits. Find out more…

Ultimately, you want to aim to drink more vegetable juices for its highly cleansing and healing properties that are effective for reversing many ailments and … melting away toxic fats.

If you have clicked on this section first, I suggest you also read the fruit juicing section later, about why you should juice. The reasons for vegetable juicing and fruit juicing are the same, but vegetables have something much more important that fruits have less of — chlorophyll.

What Is Chlorophyll?

When you hear the word “chlorophyll“, you may vaguely remember this word from Biology in school. To some of you, the word may mean almost nothing, other than the green thing in plants.

Yes, it is “the green thing” in plants, the phytochemical that makes plants green. But, it is also a very important proteinous compound that acts as our internal healer, cleanser, antiseptic, cell stimulator, rejuvenator and red blood cell builder, just as it is the “lifeblood” of the plant.

Blender binge: Are blender nutrition claims true?

This article on nutrition and health written by Ben Popken first appeared at today.com

A nation of time-starved consumers looking for a health edge has embraced the blades of a blender.

Americans trying to cram more fruits and vegetables into their diet have gone on a smoothie and juicing binge. There’s even a new product category, the “personal blender,” which has seen a 17 percent growth in the past year alone. It has a smaller counter footprint than a traditional KitchenAid-style model and sports a smaller container, 3.5 oz or less container, that often doubles as a to-go cup.

And why not? After you’ve blitzed your beets, clobbered your kale and rendered your peanuts to powder, a liquid meal can be convenient. Instead of cooking, cutting and chomping, just gulp and go.

But some mixer makers also believe their products unlock nutrients that your body wouldn’t be able to get to otherwise.

One of them, the popular “NutriBullet,” made by Capital Brands, says it turns ordinary foods into “Super Foods.” By pulverizing ingredients “at a cellular level,” the product claims it “releases vital nutrients that would have otherwise remained locked inside un-chewed bits of food.”

Fruit and vegetable juicing may be key to helping people with addictions

(NaturalNews) Could juicing be instrumental in overcoming addictions ranging from nicotine to misuse of medications? For many people, the answer is a resounding, “yes.”

Keri Kenseth, an avid juicer, says that eating fresh fruits and vegetables in this manner is the ideal way for people to maintain good health, or in the case of people with addictions, to nurture their bodies back to health.

How juicing helps people with addictions restore their health

Bodies that have faced years of addictions are riddled with toxins that wreak havoc on overall functioning. From clarity, mood, circulation, to digestion, virtually every aspect of a properly-running system is jeopardized when addictions enter the picture.

That’s where juicing comes in.

Kenseth explains that juicing allows people to consume only the essential nutrients from fruits and vegetables, which work to flush out the toxins that have been accumulated from addictive behaviors. Good thing, because over time, all that tobacco, alcohol or other harmful substances can take a toll on our mental and physical health.

Because the fresh fruits and vegetables used for juicing are void of animal products and refined sugars, the body regains energy and its immune system becomes stronger, helping to give those addictions a proper send-off as they leave our body. In other words, adding known harms like processed foods or ones that are not whole to our diets only add fuel to the fire for a body that’s already struggling with toxins.

Personal stories of those who credit juicing for turning their life around

One incredible story comes from Quentin Vennie. He was a heavy smoker, overdosed on Vicodin and struggled with addictions to other medications. Flash forward to a life of juicing and yoga, he’s free of his addictions and now a Certified Personal Trainer in New York City. He says he looks to foods, not medications, to heal himself.

 

There’s also Tom Coghill, who admits to facing muscle spasms and short-term memory loss after abusing alcohol, painkillers and tranquilizers. When he decided to make a change in his life, he started juicing foods like carrots, cantaloupe, cucumber and watermelon. He says he experienced increased energy and more importantly, turned his life from one of life-threatening addictions to one of health and newfound spirituality.

While juicing clearly has many benefits, it should be noted that it may not be for everyone. It may sometimes cause diarrhea, hyperglycemia symptoms due to consumption of high concentrations of natural sugars, or lead to infections in instances where individuals do not properly clean their juicers.

 

What you should know about the juicing craze

Juicing has become extremely popular. Juice bars that serve up fresh and colorful liquid concoctions are popping up everywhere, and home juicing of fruits and vegetables is on the rise.

Green juice, often made with kale, spinach, fruits and other vegetables, is becoming a household name. Fresh-squeezed or pressed juice has become a diet drink obsession alongside smoothies and herbal teas. If you plan to join the masses, or maybe you already have, there are some things you should know about juicing to make sure it’s right for you.

Juicing is now a multibillion-dollar business. Juice diets or juice fasts have been used for years as an extreme approach to weight loss, but the newer juicing movement has roots in a growing emphasis on raw and plant-based eating.

There are many philosophies when it comes to juicing meal plans. Juices are often consumed in place of meals, but also can be enjoyed as a snack or refreshment.

While many juicing companies and juice enthusiasts tout fresh juice as an anti-cancer antidote that boosts the immune system and is beneficial for digestion, there is limited evidence that there are health benefits beyond those provided by simply consuming the fruits and vegetables whole.

Because the juicing machine extracts the juice from the produce, the nutrient- and fiber-rich pulp and skin is left behind. Because of this, juices should not be relied upon as a sole dietary source of fruits or vegetables.

To avoid wasting the fruit and veggie pulp, repurpose it by adding it to baked goods like muffins or breads for an extra fiber boost.

Since juices do contain the full calorie and sugar content of the fruit, it is important to consider how fresh juices may be contributing to overall daily calories consumed. One medium piece of fruit contains about 60 calories. This amount of fruit yields about 4 ounces of juice, so a 16-ounce serving of fruit juice contains about 240 calories. For some drinking juice multiple times daily, these calories can really add up.

Since a serving of non-starchy vegetables like cucumber, kale, spinach and parsley contains about 25 calories or less, consuming juices that contain veggies with fruits can help reduce the overall caloric content.

There are some safety concerns when it comes to following a juice-only diet. First, because fruits and veggies don’t have significant amounts of protein, juice diets can result in muscle loss, which often leads to a slowed metabolism and weight gain once a regular eating pattern is resumed.

Also, because the fiber is removed during juicing, the final product is low in fiber and may not be adequately filling. High-protein foods like Greek yogurt, almond milk, nut butters, flaxseeds and chia seeds can be added to juices to make them more nutritionally balanced.

Food safety precautions should be followed when juicing at home. Be sure to wash your hands before getting started. All produce should be cleaned thoroughly. When you are finished juicing be sure to clean and dry the juicer and all parts thoroughly to prevent bacterial growth. Since fresh juices are not pasteurized, they should be consumed as soon as possible to prevent food-borne illness. Ideally, drink fresh juice the same day it is made or at least within two to three days.

Fresh fruit and vegetable juices can fit into a balanced meal plan and help improve the overall quality of one’s diet. However, consumption of a juice-only diet is nutritionally inadequate, lacking in protein, fiber and many other nutrients. If you are interested in drinking more fresh juices, consider vegetable-based juices, which are lower in calories and still full of flavor.
