It’s universal knowledge that by eating fruits and vegetables, your body will get plenty of health benefits. But not everyone is open to consuming these two nutritious foods, especially in their solid states. That is why some of them turn to juicers, as these machines effortlessly squeeze nutritious drinks out of their favourite fruits and vegetables. Let’s check out some of the health benefits of adding juices to your diet:
• Firstly, juicing allows the body to absorb nutrients more efficiently. The body does have a natural capability to absorb nutrients from fruits and vegetables into the body, but if a person has been living a life filled with unhealthy diets, the digestive system and its efficiency to digest and absorb nutrients can be impaired. That is why sometimes the body does not absorb nutrients from solid fruits and vegetables well. Juicing, on the other hand, turns solid ingredients into liquid form, making it easier for the digestive system to absorb most of their nutrients. This in turn also avoids most of the fruits and veggies from ending up in the toilet.
• Secondly, juicing helps you to consume the recommended amount of fresh fruits and vegetables daily. Not everyone is overly fond of eating raw fruits and especially vegetables as the taste in their solid forms can sometimes turn off their appetites. However, to maintain a healthy diet, a person needs to consume at least three servings of vegetables and two servings of fruits per day. If you find eating fruits and veggies in their solid and raw form to be a Hercules task, try juicing them instead as this will make consumption much easier and quicker. If the taste is still not to your liking, then you can add a small teaspoon of honey.
• Thirdly, juicing encourages you to add some variety into your intake of fruits and vegetables. Most people tend to stick only to one or two types of fruits and vegetables. But not just will this make your daily intake of fruits and veggies dull, but it will also limit the different kinds of nutrients your body will be able to get from other varieties. With juicing, it will encourage you to try other types of fruits and veggies because you will be able to consume them in their delicious liquid form. Juicers also allow you to mix the tastes of different fruits and veggies. For example, try mixing apple with mango.
