Hi guys, is everyone enjoying the new year and accomplishing your 2017 goals? All I can say I’ve been super busy and believe it or not, this is my FIRST, yes, you heard that right, my FIRST post this year. I’m trying not to be so hard on myself and just keep doing the best I can. So, one thing I incorporated in my daily routine to get my energy boost and so many others benefits is Green Juice.
You’re probably aware of the green drink, green juicing trend that seems to have swept the globe. The power of green juicing is everywhere. Smoothie trucks and juice bars are popping up all over the place, but there is so much more to these green elixirs than just their fruit and vegetable content.
If you ever feel like it’s difficult to eat enough veggies, raw juice might be an option to keep up with the micronutrients that many people are lacking. When you drink fresh-made green juice, it is almost like receiving an intravenous infusion of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes because they go straight into your system without having to be broken down.
Drinking your juice first thing in the morning can give you a natural energy boost without resorting to stimulants like coffee. Since the juice is already in an easily digestible form, it can help revitalize your energy levels within as little as 20 minutes… and this is only the beginning of its benefits.
Green juices are packed with nutrition consisting of vitamins, minerals and enzymes that are absorbed immediately into the blood stream with a powerful array of fibre content. These are magic liquids which have ability to transform sunshine into the food that all creatures consume. Green juicing is excellent, as our bodies absorb the nutrients with maximum efficiency. That way the nutrients are assimilated in a matter of minutes rather than hours.
Juicing and blending your greens breaks down their cell walls. Greens are amazing in salads, but if you only eat them, your body lacks the enzymes necessary to break down the cell walls of the plant. When you take your greens in juice or blended form, those cell walls are removed and you can reap maximum benefit from all the amazing nutrients hidden within the cells.
Green juicing will clean out your digestive system. Components of green juice have medicinal qualities.
Parsley is a blood cleanser,Cilantro pulls heavy metals from the body.
Ginger is a carminative, which means that it cleanses the gut as well as healing it.
Citrus juice can help fight infection.
The more of these powerful foods you put into your body, the better!
In a nutshell, we can say green juicing gives a greater health, better digestion, more energy, slimmer look with better skin, hair and nails and last but not the least increased mental focus.
THE BEST TIME TO DRINK GREEN JUICES
Now that you know the positive effects of green juicing, you should also know when is the best time to consume this magic liquid.
We must take it as a rule that, juicing should always be done on empty stomach or at least two hours after a meal. When our stomach is null of food, it is able to absorb all the nutrients found in fresh green juices with little help from our digestive system. In a void position, our stomach will easily and readily absorb the first entry to which it comes in contact with. For a healthier body, its important to introduce healthy options to our diet overall.
Instead of making a routine time for green juice intake…I like to allow my body to ask for it. And this may be anytime. When I feel to have something more, this is probably correct time to have a glass full of this energy drink.
“When we eat well, we not only feed the body but we feed the mind and soul. We feel happier and our living on this beautiful Earth becomes more beautiful and a wonderful experience indeed!”
I hope I have stirred a fire in you to go out and give some green juice a try. I promise, your body will thank you!
The more things we can do to keep our systems clean the better.
