Green juice may sound like a weight loss trend and while some do testify it comes with weight loss powers, the essence of pure green juice is not designed to shed pounds alone. There are other benefits to gain besides a smaller jean size (which doesn’t equate to true health anyway).
We live in an acidic world. Processed food, cooked foods, and animal-based foods all leave an acidic ash in our bodies. It’s the one reason the raw food diet has become so popular: it promotes alkalinity, which means less inflammation for us so we’re feeling good and carrying loads of energy with us around the clock. An acid body leaves you tired, achy, depressed, and feeling like you need an extra pot of coffee to get you through the day. No fun, right?
THE BENEFITS OF ALKALINITY.
An alkaline body keeps you feeling flexible, energized, and balanced, with a striking sense of calm at the same time. While it’s normal to feel a little draggy and achy some days, it’s not normal on a day to day basis. Filling your body with fresh, live, raw green foods, is one of the best ways to promote an alkaline body. And while your diet can be too alkaline, generally, most people don’t have that problem. Even healthy raw foods like fruits and raw grains, nuts, and seeds have a bit of acid to them, so they naturally balance things out.
Green juice is beneficial for alkalizing your body and a little will go a long way. It cleanses the blood, liver, digestive tract, and kidneys. It also provides support for all major organs of the body.
Green juice also helps your body absorb nutrients from leafy greens and veggies easier than it does when you chew them. Your body has to break down food to obtain nutrients, but with green juice, all the nutrients are immediately absorbed into the bloodstream so you benefit right away. This is one reason some people say that green juice curbs cravings – because the body is getting the nutrients it craves right from the get go. Magnesium is one of the most important minerals when it comes to blood sugar, sugar cravings, general fatigue, and irregularity. Plant-based foods are PACKED with magnesium, so when you consume green juice, you’re getting in a large dose of magnesium right away, versus having to chew and process tons of food at one time to obtain it. Other minerals like calcium and potassium are also quickly absorbed through green juice rather than when chewed.
