Juicing is one of the easiest ways to get the necessary doses of fruits and vegetables in an efficient and enjoyable way. Juicing has become very popular and there are people across the globe juicing their way to health, but are they really getting everything they need? There is a raging debate around the question – Is Juicing Healthy or Harmful?
As always we believe in moderation when it comes to all things, except the amount of bikini’s you have in your cupboard… and as a rule you need to remember that juicing is not by any means a substitute for a healthy diet.
A two to three-day cleanse won’t send your body into a total shock, but be sure not to push yourself too hard or too fast, especially if this is your first time trying a juice cleanse.
Here are some of the health benefits of juicing:
- Aids in digestion.
- Improves cardiovascular health.
- Detoxifies the liver.
- Promotes healthy skin, strong hair and nails.
You need to balance the ingredients of your juicing ritual, you can’t have just fruits or just veg – In the beginning one often doesn’t realize how much “food” you are actually consuming in a single each glass. When you remove the fibrous exterior of fruits, you reduce some of the health benefits and end up consuming more sugar than you bargained for – Make sure to create the necessary balance.
