Absorb More Nutrients Juicing

Juicing helps the body absorb all the nutrients from the fruits and vegetables. This is one of my main reasons for juicing.  You’ll be able to absorb more nutrients from your fruits and vegetables than if you were eating them raw or cooked.

Juicing breaks down the fruits and vegetables, removes the fiber, thus making it easier for your body to absorb more nutrients.

This is important because according to experts, many of us have an impaired digestive system as a result of making poor food choices over the years. This limits your body’s ability to absorb all the nutrients from fruits and vegetables when eating them.

absorb more nutrientsBreak It Down: Absorb More Nutrients

Juicers break down the fiber’s cell wall and release the nutrients, allowing your body to absorb more nutrients found in fresh fruits and vegetables. Juicers expel the indigestible fiber.

This isn’t to say that you should gulp your juice down. No, slowly drink your juice, almost chewing it and allow your saliva time to start the digestive process. Sipping or chewing your juice also sends a message to your brain that you’re eating, filling yourself.

Besides vitamins and minerals, fresh juice contains enzymes. Live enzymes! This is good for the body and it’s important to drink your fresh juice as soon as you can. Otherwise you’ll loose some of the living enzymes. I recommend drinking fresh juice within 20 minutes of juicing. Of course, if you’re like me, you’re going to make some extra for later. So store your juice in tightly sealed containers and keep it refrigerated.

You can add a wider variety of vegetables in your diet. Many people eat the same vegetable salads every day. This violates the principle of regular food rotation and increases your chance of developing an allergy to a certain food. But with juicing, you can juice a wide variety of vegetables that you may not normally enjoy eating whole. – Mercola

  34. Kerry says:

    Love hearing your thoughts on juicing. I love a good juice and the idea that the nutrients are more readily absorbed is interesting. Is there much of a concern though that by removing the fibre, the GI goes up and the natural sugars are also more rapidly absorbed? Personally, I prefer to go for smoothies to retain the fibre and keep the absorption rate more natural. Just my two cents.

    It is good to know the importance of juicing. Actually, I have tried juicing Malunggay leaves (Moringa Olifera) with powdered milk one time and after a sip I vowed to never drink it again. It was awful tasting and tasted like medicine. I was discouraged with the taste of my juice but not with the juicing regime. I did not know what I was doing. After the failed attempt,I did not bother to find other resources about juicing until now. I am thankful to have found your blog.

    Juicing allows pre-digestion, or the immediate absorption of all of the nutrients from produce. Plus, juicing provides versatility in vegetables because it helps people to enjoy more veggies they may not typically like to eat whole.

  44. I love juicing! I really got stated in daily juicing a couple of summers ago when we bought our summer cottage in Finland and spent the long days berry picking in our local forest. We get blueberries, wild strawberries, lingonberries and raspberries and on a good days we will forage several kilos. Some goes to jams and tarts but a lot goes into our juicer to provide amazingly fresh and healthy summer fruits. We do add the odd mango (not local of course) but mainly stick to what we can pick.

  46. Starting slowly is a great idea, and can really help you stay committed to juicing. Your brain receiving the signals that it you are being fed is key to feeling full. It’s also true that juicing does release quite a few of the vitamins and minerals in some fruits and vegetables, making it easily digestible and easy to absorb. Often, cooking, freezing, frying, etc. will decrease how many nutrients there actually are in your food, so juicing is a great way to go.
