No Time To Juice… Here’s What You Do

on April 15, 2014

Juicing is a great way to add raw greens and fruits to your food intake.  95% of the vitamins and enzymes our bodies need are found in the juice of raw fruits and vegetables. When you drink raw, organic juice; highly concentrated vitamins, minerals and enzymes rapidly enter the bloodstream absorbing all of the nutritional benefits of the fruits and vegetables and giving your digestive organs a rest.

Valuable compounds called flavonoids and anthocyanins are abundant in a variety of fruits and vegetables and guard against oxidative cellular damage, which comes from everyday cellular maintenance and by exposure to chemicals and pollution.

Research shows the healing properties of juicing will help weight loss, increase energy levels, strengthen immunity, strengthen bones and give you a glowing complexion.  Juicing may also reduce chances of heart disease, cancer and strokes, three of the leading causes of death.  Most vitamin supplements don’t help prevent chronic disease because they are made in a laboratory making them not the real thing.  Nature’s plant-based vitamins and minerals are more easily and completely absorbed by the body.

Nowadays, there’s really no excuse not to juice.   I normally get a fresh raw juice for myself and Luna everyday, but sometimes I use BluePrint and Rawpothacary because they are organic, have simple ingredients and are not pasteurized which damages the nutrients.  If you don’t feel like making your own or simply don’t have the time, go out and buy one!  Your best bet is a fresh made raw juice.  In NYC there’s plenty of options – Liqueteria, Organic Avenue, Juice Press, Magic Mix Juicery, just to name a few.  In Lower Westchester, there’s Mrs. Greens, WholeFoods, Pure, and Andy’s.  In Greenwich, CT there’s Elixir Juice Bar, Green and Tonic, and GrassRxoots (Old Greenwich).  If you don’t have access to that, then there’s plenty of organic bottled options.
