Sure, if you have been around my blog and receiving my emails for a while, you’re becoming pretty familiar with the almost-immediate benefits of switching over to a living foods lifestyle, but what about long-term benefits? Turns out there are quite a few life-saving, life-changing, long-term benefits you’ll get from your green juicing!
The phytochemicals in live plants give our body a natural boost towards preventing or fighting off potential deadly diseases, such as many forms of cancer. Different fruits and vegetables have different phytochemicals, but so many of them have cancer-fighting, cancer-preventing and maybe even cancer-curing properties!
You totally deserve to stay healthy against these diseases! And you can start boosting your immune system starting TODAY!
Keep It Raw Baby!
Your body also receives way more valuable nutrients in fruits and vegetables that are in their raw or living form, rather than in a cooked (yep – boiled, broiled, grilled, or sauteed) form! The National Cancer Institute, along with several other organizations, recommends getting at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day – and that should be even more qualified to say raw/living for optimum benefits. Sadly, though, many people only get 1 ½ servings of any type of produce each day – eek!
Don’t let this be you! It’s just not worth it!
Get All You Need & More With Green Juicing!
This is another area juicing comes in handy. With juicing, you’re able to get way more produce – especially those luscious greens – into your gorgeous bod than by eating them alone.
For example, look at my “The Daily” Organifi Green Juice recipe. In this recipe alone, which makes two servings, there are cucumbers, kale leaves, celery, broccoli, garlic cloves and fresh ginger!
According to the USDA, one serving of vegetables is typically the size of a deck of cards or baseball. This includes ½ cup of cut vegetables or 1 cup of raw leafy vegetables. You pretty much have all of your recommended servings of vegetables right there in that one simple recipe, not to mention the health benefits of the variety of vegetables in there!
