Juice Your Way To Health And Fitness

With the obesity rate up quite high and sickness and disease becoming more and more prevalent in the United States, the topic of juicing to become healthy and fit has become more and more popular in the last few years. If you happen to tune into television shows like Dr. Oz, you have probably heard a little bit about the raw food and juicing subjects and perhaps have been thinking about become a “juicer”. If so, I commend you because juicing is a great way to add nutritional value to your body and the act of juicing actually helps you mentally as well because you simply feel good about taking responsibility for what goes into your body.

Juicing involves taking fruits and vegetables and turning them into freshly squeezed juice through the use of a juicer. You can purchase a juicer online or at most department stores like Walmart, Target, or Kmart. Most people are aware that eating 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day is recommended for optimal health, but how many people actually consume that? Not that many. Juicing is a wonderful way to pack all the nutrients of your fruits and veggies in delicious juices that you can consume in minutes.
The beauty of antioxidants
Eating fresh fruits and vegetables is recommended, but would you rather eat 5 carrots and 5 pieces of celery or simply drink a glass of juice that has the same powerful nutrients, enzymes, and antioxidants? This is exactly what juicing can do for you. It might take you a few minutes to wash and put fruit and vegetables into the juicer, but you will have delicious juice within a minute or two and be on your way knowing that you just drank a super-duper antioxidant cocktail that is feeding your cells excellent nutrients as you go about your way.

Many juicers will put in their greens that they do not care to eat raw in the juicer and mix with fruits to offset the taste.
