Many of us have heard of juice fasts as a means of detoxifying the body. Proponents of a raw foods regimen also include juices as a part of their nutrition. Virtually anything can be juiced – fruit and veg, primarily. It’s a form of concentrated nutrition. Some raw foodists drink only fresh fruit juices.
In addition, fruit and plant juices are excellent sources of the standard nutriments. Citrus fruits (grapefruit, oranges, for example.) offer a healthy portion of vitamin C. Carrot juice contains large quantities of vitamin A, in the shape of beta carotene. Several green juices are an excellent source of vitamin E. Fruit juices are a good source of essential minerals like iron, copper, potassium, sodium, iodine, and magnesium, which are bound by the plant in a form that is most easily assimilated during digestion.
While fruit and plant juices are the most common form of juice, wheatgrass juice has been getting a large amount of attention recently due to the denseness of nutrient elements it contains.
The primary advantage of really fresh wheatgrass juice – juice made of raw, live, soil-grown wheat grass, is the obvious elevated level of life force energy that it contains. It’s one of the few actually fresh foods available (sprouts are another).
The grass is alive and growing right up to the time it is juiced, and hopefully you are drinking it within a few minutes or so of juicing. Most of us get our green vegetables from markets, and they were picked days back and chilled – losing dynamism all of the time. (It is an far worse situation for fruit, that might be picked weeks before you eat it, and in a few cases, held in cold storage for months – losing vigour the whole time.) Against this, one can grow wheatgrass indoors, and like it when it is truly fresh.
In conclusion, drinking lots of fresh fruit juices daily will cleanse your system, cause you to feel absolutely energized and last although not least, you’ll look beautiful. Folks will wonder what you’re doing differently!
