Your Body — A Natural Juicer
Your body is the world's best juicer...
... when working efficiently!
Your body is the world's best juicer when working efficiently. Unfortunately, many people have digestive problems, eat incorrectly, etc and therefore have a body which may not work as efficiently as it should.
While juicing should not replace eating whole meals, juicing is an excellent compliment to a healthy lifestyle and healthy living.
When you eat food, your teeth chew the food, saliva is mixed in with the food, you then swallow the food. The food then enters your digestive system and your saliva, which was mixed in with food, has enzymes which begin the digestion of the food eaten.
As your body digests the food you have eaten, the digestive juices begin to extract the juice from the food. The juice of the food you have eaten is where the source of the nutrition is. Your body essentially works to separate the bulk from the juice. The bulk then goes out as waste while the nutrition is utilized by the body and provides the body with nutrition.
When you juice, you mimic your body's own natural digestion by extracting the juice from the fruits and vegetables you are juicing.
Since it takes time for your body to digest food, sometimes hours, the body releases the nutrition from the food you have eaten slowly into your bloodstream.
When you juice the body no longer needs to digest or break down the food eaten. As a result, the nutrition from the juice is immediately and quickly released into the bloodstream.
Since the juice and nutrition is released quickly into the bloodstream, we as juicers, must be vitally aware of the amount of sugar there is the juice we are drinking. If the sugar amount of the juice we are drinking is high, we then increase our risk for getting problems such as diabetes or hypoglycemia.
A sugar is a sugar is a sugar. It does not matter what the form is, a sugar is a sugar.
When we elevate our blood sugar level, even from from drinking fresh juice, we increase our risk of sugar related health problems.
The benefit of juicing is that due to the extraction of the juice, it helps our body get more nutrition from valuable sources such as cabbage, broccoli, parsley, etc. Juicing helps our body get more nutrition more easily because even with a weakened digestive system, the body does not need to break down the juice.
Since drinking juice requires no chewing, no enzymes from your saliva are mixed in with the juice. As a result, if you swallow juice without chewing it first, you actually decrease the effectiveness of the juice you are drinking.
It's important to chew your juice as soon as it enters your mouth. The chewing action mixes saliva with the juice allowing your body to more easily utilize and absorb the nutrition of the fresh juice.
Juicing is not about pleasing your taste buds, but rather about providing your body with extra nutrition. Thus, even though the juice is a liquid you must chew your juice like a food to mix in the saliva.
Juicing mimics your body's own natural digestive process. Drinking fresh juice then makes the nutrition more readily available to your body by eliminating your body's need to break down the food that would have been eaten. While juicing is beneficial, one still needs to eat solid food to get the fiber the body needs and eating food helps keep the digestive system stimulated.
Juicing is complimentary to a healthy lifestyle and should not replace good, healthy eating habits.
Juicing is not an excuse to eat unhealthy foods.
Juicing is part of a healthy lifestyle and it will help your body get more nutrition since most of us, especially as we get older, have weakened digestive systems.
