This classic saying actually has quite a bit of merit! Eating raw apples regularly is great for gout and rheumatism. 2 apples a day can actually reduce cholesterol levels by 10%. You can even apply raw grated apples as a poultice on sprains. Lets not forget that all this wonderful fiber is great for weight loss by increasing fullness and regulating blood sugars throughout the day!Read More
[gallery type="circle" ids="6086,6084,6083"] I could go on forever about the wonderful benefits of juicing and am so thankful that people like Jay Kordich have been promoting this way of life for decades! I am always on the go and love the fact that I can juice in the morning and bring it with me throughout the day.
Juicing is able to:
- Absorb more nutrients
- Increase your energy
- Have glowing skin
- Improve concentration
- Support your immune system
- Increase your antioxidants
- Consume larger amounts fruits and vegetables
I have been juicing religiously for over a decade and my juicer recently broke (but it lasted 10 years!) and I have noticed a clear difference in my energy, concentration, and skin since I have been without. If there is one simple thing to add to your diet to increase your nutrient intake, I would without a doubt recommend incorporating juicing.
Here is one of my favorite juicing recipes:
Burdock Root: for blood cleansing and overall detoxification.
Apples: for controlling blood sugar and immune boosting with quercetin.
Fennel: to aid in digestion
Kiwi: rich in vitamin C and has lots of enzymes that support digestion.
Pear: high in antioxidants and is a very cooling fruit.
Carrots: rich in vitamin A and beta-carotene which is great for eye health and increasing antioxidants in your body.
A quality juicer that is also inexpensive (juicers can range from $200 to $2,000) is the PowerGrind Pro
