Eating The Vegetables Raw May Be More Beneficial
Juicing could also be an easier way to make up for our 6 to 8 recommended daily intake of fruits or vegetables. Juice can on the other hand also be heathier to eating the fruits and vegetables as it will allow for all the nutrients in them to get absorbed in the body straight away. Eating them raw may restrict certain nutrients from finding their way into our bodies that easily. Juicing can allow us to mix a certain number of vegetables otherwise difficult when cooking. Therefore it can increase the amount of vegetables that we can consume as a whole.
There is no fat in the juice of these vegetables and fruits and protein is limited as well. Juicing can help preserve certain micronutrients that get destroyed when exposed to heat. Processing destroys them too by altering their chemical composition.
Fruit juices should however be approached with extra caution if you have high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes. Lemons and limes however can be an exception as they are amazing at eliminating the bitter taste that dark green and leafy vegetable juice possesses.
Cheap centrifugal juicers could be loud and thus cause hearing problems. It is advisable to get a mid range juicer that will produce a higher quality juice and that will also tend to last a bit more longer.
It should however be noted that despite all the nutrients it has to offer, juice alone cannot be classified as a complete meal. Unless some sort of dieting is in place or detoxification is the aim of the juice consumption then it should be taken as part of a healthy meal or taken in between meals as a snack.
Caution should be exercised in the knowledge that certain vegetable can be heavily loaded with pesticides. The worst in the categories are celery, spinach, kale, collard greens, lettuce and carrots. Peeling the skin of cucumbers could help reduce the amount of pesticides that will be consumed.
It is important to make sure that the first juicing experience with Genuine Juicer is highly enjoyable. This will ensure a happy stomach as well. Only fruits that are enjoyed raw should be used the first time round. Adding the other varieties of vegetables should then be practised slowly. It should be noted that large amounts of certain juices especially that of cabbage cannot be digested. It can cause the stomach to churn uncomfortably. This should not be the case. The stomach should not feel uncomfortable as this is not classified as one of the benefits. You should not feel nauseous either after having had your juice.
