Reasons To Juice
What are some good reasons to juice? Without a doubt it’s good for your body.

FRESH juice contains more available nutrients and enzymes than chewed raw food.
Reasons To Juice
Here’s a reason to juice: Phytonutrients 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 also fight free radicals. Free radicals cause deterioration of our healthy cells. When we drink fresh juices with phytonutrients they will activate a group of enzymes that will go around and clean up free radicals in the body before they can do any harm. Just like antioxidants. Actually, many phytonutrients are anti-oxidant.
Here’s another good reason to juice: 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. They are good for your body!
