One of our favorite blogs for juicing recipes, smoothies and health food comes from Elizabeth Rider. She has some really great insights into healthy living, and, as you’ll see below, the benefits of juicing.
Here are some of Elizabeth’s benefits of green juice:
Fresh green juice reduces inflammation in your body, and according to Christine Lydon, MD, of Yale Medical School “inflammatory processes lie at the root of virtually every chronic disease process known to modern man – from obesity and diabetes to heart disease and cancer.” Yuck! Inflammation = bad. Anti-inflammatory green juice = good.
The enzymes in fresh green juice improve your digestive heath, and most health experts believe at least 80% of your immune system lives in your digesting system. Again, drink up.
Green Juice drenches your body in plant nutrients and chlorophyll (aka liquid sunshine.) Chlorophyll strengthens your immune system, helps control inflammation, increases red blood cell production, and helps enhance your cells’ ability to carry oxygen.
In addition to her thoughts, we know that consuming leafy green veggies like kale or spinach can be a great base for any juicing recipes for weight loss.
