I introduce a lot of clients to juicing and smoothie making as a fun way to ensure their diet is rich in what is loosely called macro nutrients. Delving into the science world we find a lot of naturally occurring substances are named and labelled with their resulting effects documented. But like the sea and the surface of the moon, there is plenty to be explored yet!
What I feel exists in living natural foods is an abundance of living nutrients yet to be fully explained, but I am sure these are active compounds with significant healing capabilities and are essential to beaming good health. Most clients that start juicing on a regular basis instantly notice a change for the better, stronger nails, whiter teeth, weight loss and more energy. All positive results I am sure you would agree and results that no vitamin pill or other health improving product will achieve. Why? Well although when you look on the side of a pill or potion the list of ingredients will look impressive, but its debateable if the nutrients are bio available, that is useable by your body and more to the point a processed, man made substance will not contain the life force of living fresh fruits and vegetables!
So in conclusion dont look for a product to improve your health levels, look to nature and in particular quality fruits and vegetables. Also be aware that cooking will lessen the levels of life force or macro nutrition in your fruits and vegetables so try juicing and smoothie making as a way of introducing raw nutrition into your diet. If you do I am sure the benefits will be instant and hopefully the habit will be lasting.
For more reading research the Gerson therapy technique of treating cellular disease with raw living juices, the very success of this therapy relies on the active life force of vegetables in quantity to arrest and reverse cellular disease.
For this treatment a slow speed juicer is used to deliver the vital macro nutrients in an easy to digest format, juice!
