Have you ever wondered where the MOST ABUNDANT vitamins and other vital nutrients are found?
It’s definitely NOT in the fast food restaurants.
It is in fruits and vegetables.
In fact, they are also the best source of living nutrients like organic minerals, vitamins, enzymes and fibre that your body needs.
And one of the best ways to get an abundance of phytonutrients is to juice fruits and vegetables.
A year after adopting Dr. Lynn Tan’s Healthy Lifestyle that includes drinking fresh juices regularly, I met a distant relative. And what she said surprised me …
“You look good! When I saw you last year, your complexion was dull. Now, it is glowing with health.”
I didn’t know I had an unhealthy-looking complexion. But I am glad it is no longer so.
I believe it was due to Dr. Lynn’s exceptional Healthy Lifestyle and the health benefits of juicing.
Here are some marvelous health benefits of juicing:
1. Juice is living food
Cooking destroys most of the nutrients and enzymes in vegetables and fruits.
But not everyone enjoys raw vegetables.
Therefore, drinking fresh vegetables and fruits juices is a great way to get living food for your body.
2. Easy digestion and assimilation of nutrients
Solid foods take 2 to 3 hours to digest before the nutrients can be made available. Juices, on the other hand, need just 15 minutes to be assimilated to feed your cells and tissues.
Datin Dr. Lynn Tan (N.D.) shares two other great health benefits of juicing …
3. For cleansing and repairing of your liver, kidneys, intestinal tracts and other vital organs
The healing properties of juices are well documented in many books and literature. For example, Dr. Norman Walker’s Fresh Vegetables & Fruit Juices, describes how papaya juice has helped correct intestinal disorder.
The health benefits of juicing carrots include the followings:
a) Carrot has the richest source of beta-carotene, which is an effective antioxidant to protect your body from free radical damage and premature aging.
b) Carrot juice causes your liver to release bile, and excessive accumulated cholesterol and toxins.
Cleansing of the liver may cause the effect of a slight yellowish color on your skin due to the large amount of waste matter being released. This discoloration is harmless.
c) Carrot juice also has an alkalizing effect on your blood, soothing the entire nervous system while toning your intestinal walls.
4. For toning your blood
Blood is the life stream of your body, affecting every cell and system you possess. For the complex working of the body, your blood needs a constant source of nutrients.
Millions of people suffer from a lack of iron (anaemia) without knowing it. If you still feel tired despite having enough sleep, you may have a form of anaemia.
Anaemia saps your energy by depriving your cells of oxygen. This happens when your blood has too few red blood cells or too little haemoglobin to transport oxygen through the bloodstream.
The health benefits of juicing green leafy vegetables is tremendous in fighting anaemia. This is because it is extremely rich in iron and other minerals. And it is very high in chlorophyll.
What exactly is chlorophyll?
Chlorophyll is a substance found EXCLUSIVELY in plants. It has a structure similar to human haemoglobin.
During the 1940s, researchers found that consuming chlorophyll enhances the body’s ability to produce haemoglobin, thus improving the efficiency of oxygen transport.
The above are just a few of the awesome health benefits of juicing.
