It is a known fact that fresh juices are healthier than the pasteurized ones. Everyone knows that a glass of fresh cool juice for breakfast makes a person strong enough to fight the most dangerous and active viruses. Below are some tips on how to get the most out of your fresh juice.
Drink Juice or Have Fruits?
Fresh juices contain the same vitamins, minerals, and fructose found in fruits. The advantage of juices hides in the fact that they are easily and quickly digested, within 15 minutes, while fruit digestion takes roughly 5-6 hours. Therefore, juices are often recommended as part of many diet plans. They act quickly, fill up the stomach, improve digestion, and boost bowel peristalsis.
Health Benefits of Fruits
However, we should not forget about fruits, since unlike juices they contain cellulose. Cellulose is essential for good digestion, better functionality of the intestines, and removal of wastes from the body. In addition, eating fruits improves salvation, and thus reduces the harmful effect of acid on teeth.
Health Benefits of Juices and When Natural Juices Should be Avoided
Regular consumption of juices easily helps fix shortage of important vitamins and minerals, and therefore regulate the metabolism. Give preferences to fruit and vegetable juices made with products from your climate zone, as those types of fruits will be easily digested by your body.
Sour juices require snacks to go with them. Organic acids irritate gastric mucous membrane, therefore if the juice is too sour dilute it with water or have some of your favorite vegetable with it – a leaf of lettuce, cucumber, or tomato. Juices stimulate appetite by triggering enzyme production. Those of you who can not fight the temptation to open your fridge every time hunger comes by and have something tasty to make it go away should be aware of this. It is better to have some juice directly before a mealtime. Be careful with pomegranate, grapefruit, beet root, and carrot juices, as they are very active and not every organism can handle them.
