If you include juicing in your daily diet… GREAT. If not, keep reading because by the time you finish reading these shocking benefits of juicing, you may want to start.
You may be new to juicing and that is perfectly OK. I want to start by making a simple statement. Juice more vegetables than fruit. I have read so many people talking about how juicing isn’t beneficial because of all the sugar. Don’t get me wrong, fruit is healthy for you but like everything else… in moderation. Too much of anything is bad for you.
Fruit contains sugar. Natural sugar but its still sugar. So, if you eat too much fruit, you are also digesting way too much sugar. That is when juicing can prevent all these amazing health benefits. Again… juice more vegetables than you do fruit.
Now onto the benefits of what juicing can provide…
Easier and More Effective Absorption of Nutrients
Let me start by saying yes, fiber is also good to digest but the body can only eat so much. When you juice, you are packing as many healthy nutrients in a liquid form. It is much easier for your body to absorb a liquid than it is a solid. Not only are you absorbing nutrients easier but you are absorbing much more nutrients.
If you have never juiced before, you can juice your recommended daily intake (6-8 servings) of fruits and vegetables in about a cup of juice.
Its very hard to eat 6-8 servings of fruits and vegetables in any given day. Juicing not only takes care of that problem but allows you to digest and absorb them easier and much more effectively.
Yes! That’s right… juicing influences weight loss.
Juicing will INFLUENCE weight loss. Meaning you must also have a healthy diet, exercise, get your rest, etc. This simply influences weight loss and has the potential to speed up weight loss.
When you juice, you are absorbing the right nutrients and the right amount of nutrients. Your body is now able to “detox” and process how its meant to process.
Your metabolism will increase, meaning you are able to burnt more fat throughout your day.
Healthy Skin and Hair
This is HUGE!
I have personal experience with this.
When I started juicing I noticed my skin and hair was no longer oily and I had reduced the amount of breakouts, DRAMATICALLY.
I constantly had people telling me that my skin looked healthy.
Juicing provides your body with numerous nutrients that will aid your body.
You ever hear the phrase, “You are what you eat”?
Helps Fight Cancer
And if that doesn’t do it for you… juicing is a less expensive and less painful alternative than having to go through chemotherapy.
Juicing will not CURE cancer… but it will help prevent cancer. The daily recommended intake is about 6-8 servings of fruit and vegetables (80% vegetables, 20% fruit) a day! In order to consume all of these fruits and vegetables, juicing only makes it possible.
Mental Alertness and Happiness
Think of it this way, when you consume more fruits and vegetables, your body is able to function at an optimum level.
Consuming these healthy nutrients improve blood circulation. Transporting oxygen throughout your body and your brain.
Juicing influences you to be on your A game throughout your day and has the ability to provide you with just enough energy to stay alert.
Helps Lower Blood Sugar Levels and High Cholesterol
I will continue to mention the same thing, juicing allows you to consume the proper nutrients your body NEEDS. You are allowing your body to absorb a large amount of nutrients that is recommended in a single day.
Juicing dark, leafing greens are basically a super food. They aid in lowering blood sugar levels and high cholesterol.
To top it all off, by consuming a greater amount of fruits and vegetables, you will become full so the temptation to splurge and eat greasy or fat food is decrease dramatically.
If you are interested in implementing juicing into your daily diet, I want to give you a review on the best juicers out there.
This is BY FAR, the best juicer. I have been using this juicer for about 4 years and I have never had any problems with it. It’s very easy to use and very easy to clean. The Omega J8006 is one of the most expensive juicers on the market but the quality and life-time warranty put it above all the rest.
The Aicok is a nice alternative to the omega. Less expensive but will also allow you to get the job done, and very nicely if I must say. This juicer has a very quiet motor and is easy to clean. Overall… perfect spot at #2 on the list.
The Hamilton Beach 67601A is the least expensive juicer on this list. Very affordable but it also comes with a couple of red flags. I personally bought one of these when I first started juicing and I had problems with the blade getting very dull… meaning you had to go out and buy a new one. The motor was not too loud and it is indeed, very easy to clean. The question comes down to, how much are you willing to pay for the quality of your juicer?
The better the quality your juicer is, the better quality of juice you are consuming…

Wrapping it up!
I want to be very clear when talking about juicing… 80% vegetables and 20% fruit. You do not want to juice more fruit than you do vegetables because it could lead to diabetes and becoming overweight due to all the sugar you are consuming.
You must find a juice that you enjoy and play with it a bit. Add and remove. Remember when doing this… lemons or limes are GREAT if you are trying to enjoy the taste a little more.
Also,- if you just simply juice and nothing else, you will not see these results. You must incorporate an all-around healthy diet, exercise daily, and get your rest. Juicing is just another way to live a happier and healthier life!
