Raw Juices and Their Healthy Benefits
There is an old Arab proverb which says “He who has health has hope; and he who has hope has everything.” Healthy living can open up many doors for us and let us enjoy all there is in life! One easy–and tasty–way of healthy living is in drinking raw juice. There are many benefits to drinking raw juices. Here are just a few of the highlights:
- Fresh vegetable juices are an excellent source of raw food nutrition. Most of us don’t eat enough fresh raw foods. Raw foods contain beneficial things like food enzymes, chlorophyl, oxygen, and vitamins. Drinking a fresh vegetable juice will infuse your body with the goodness of raw foods.
- Juicing is great for your digestive organs. Digestion is a big job…just notice how tired you feel after a large heavy meal. By drinking fresh vegetable juice you deliver pure nutrition to your body without putting it to work.
- Fruit and vegetable juices retain most of of the vitamins, minerals and plant chemicals (phytonutrients) that would be found in the whole versions of those foods. These nutrients can help protect against cardiovascular disease, cancer and various inflammatory diseases, like rheumatoid arthritis.
