Following on from her first article on the topic, Nutritional Therapist Suzanne Garaty quickly explains the benefits of treating juice as intravenous nutrition. Juicing is a wonderful way to expedite the delivery of superfoods to your bloodstream – it’s a fact.
The process of juicing really is wonderful. It extracts the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, chlorophyll, enzymes and phytochemicals from fruits and vegetables and presents them in a liquid form.
By removing the soluble fibre, your body can absorb these nutrients almost instantly. And by removing the fibre, you’re outsourcing the job of digestion to your juicer and giving your overworked digestive system a break.
It really is an intravenous drip of nutrition straight to your cells.
When you drink a fresh juice, your body is able to assimilate the nutrients within 15 minutes, compared to a solid meal that may take over two hours to get to your cells. This gives your body an abundance of clean, green and nutrient-dense building blocks to a healthier version of you.
“It really is an intravenous drip of nutrition straight to your cells.”
The next question you might be asking is, when should I juice, and when should I cleanse?
In the final article in this series of three, Suzanne will explain when to juice and when to cleanse. Stay tuned!
