Having trouble getting your fruits and vegetables in? Try juicing! Juicing is an excellent form of extraction that helps you retain the vitamins and minerals contained therein without having to consume them whole.
Making an investment in a high-quality juicer is one of the best things you can do for yourself health-wise. Raw juice is teeming with micronutrients that many people are lacking in their diets.
Think of it almost like an intravenous infusion of vitamins, enzymes and minerals going straight into your system without going through the laborious process of having to be broken down. As a result of poor eating habits and malnutrition, some of us have impaired digestion, which limits the body’s ability to absorb nutrients from the fruits and vegetables that we eat. Juicing “pre-digests” them for you, so you receive most of the valuable nutrition right away.
