Why Drink Green Juice?
The USDA found that most Americans eat less than half of the recommended amount of vegetables a day. And of this, only 10% is the dark green veggies you need to maintain optimal health. Green juices can give you a whole days worth of vegetables in one serving.
Green juices are full of nutrition. They are filled with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytochemical. Although juicing fresh is best, even some bottled, store bought, green juices were high in nutrients. A popular brand with mostly vegetables contained around 36% of your daily dose of potassium and 20% of vitamin A, with only 12 grams of sugar, and 4 grams of protein.
Juicing helps you to absorb more of the nutrients in the vegetables you drink. Many of us suffer from digestive issues. Juicing helps you “pre-digest” your veggies, so you get most of the nutrition, rather than it going down the toilet.
Drinking green juices increases your energy. You’ll notice after you drink a glass of green juice you get a serge of energy. This is because your body has an abundance of the nutrients that it needs to operate at optimal levels. Juicing also balances your pH and this makes you feel energized.
Studies show that drinking green juices can prevent and even cure a whole host of diseases.
Drinking green leafy juices prevents type 2 diabetes. Juicing has even been shown to alleviate the symptoms of type 2 diabetes and in some cases cure it altogether. But be careful… if you drink sugary fruit juices it can have the opposite effect.
In other research, green juicing has been shown to reduced cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure, and even reverse the symptoms of heart disease. It was found that in as little as 3 months just drinking one cup of kale juice a day improved cholesterol ratios and selenium levels went up.
In studies, juicing has been shown to boost your immunity.
Especially when you use green leafy veggies and cruciferous vegetables such as bok choy, cabbage, and broccoli. These vegetables contain compounds that boosts immunity but also provide an extra layer of protection to the cells in your body.
Research shows that juicing can promote weight loss. This is because it increases the amount of nutrients absorbed by your body. Vegetable juice drinkers significantly increase the vitamin C and potassium in their system, while decreasing their overall carbohydrate intake.
It was found that participants drinking 8 ounces of vegetable juice a day lost 4 times as much weight as those who skipped the glass of juice!
Studies show that drinking green juice promotes brain health. Those who juiced 3 times a week were 76% less likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease. Juicing can preserve and even improve your memory and other mental functions. Drinking juices made with greens, beets, carrots, and celery were shown to increase scores on cognitive tests.
So drinking green juices increases the nutrients you absorb and prevents disease. You not only get your daily serving of vegetables but also get a wider variety of them. This leads to drinking veggies you normally wouldn’t eat. Often you get into the pattern of eating the same vegetables or side dishes every day. This increases your chance of developing a food sensitivity or allergy. So juicing gives you the wide variety of nutrients you need to maintain a healthier body and a healthier mind.
