What are some reasons to juice? At PRIME Juicers we believe it’s good for your body. FRESH fruit and vegetable juice will give your body the antioxidants, enzymes, vitamins and minerals it needs to heal, be stronger and feel better. FRESH juice contains more available nutrients and enzymes than chewed raw food.
They are natural compounds found in fruits and vegetables and have been proven to be beneficial to human health and help the body fight disease. Some claim they can slow the aging process by reducing the negative effects of aging. Nothing will keep you from getting older, but FRESH fruit and vegetable juice makes it easier. Phytonutrients protect you from high blood pressure, heart disease, osteoporosis, many forms of cancer, and a whole host of other illnesses. Phytonutrients are also known to fight free radicals. Free radicals cause deterioration of our healthy cells. When we drink juices with phytonutrients they’ll activate a group of enzymes that will go around and clean up free radicals in the body before they can do any harm. Kind of like antioxidants. Actually, many phytonutrients are anti-oxidant.
Carotenoids also act like antioxidants in your body. Carotenoids provide the yellow, red and orange colors in fruits and vegetables. That’s why I always say make your meal colorful and when juicing do the same. That way you’re sure to get a balanced amount of these fabulous free radical fighters. There are many types of carotenoids: Alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, beta-cryptoxanthin, lycopene and lutein.
