Growing numbers of adults and children are not eating even the minimum daily requirement of fruits and vegetables. Consequently obesity and many chronic illnesses that stem from an unhealthy diet are on the rise all over the world, even in Scandinavian countries where weight problems are historically rare.
As a result, more and more people are trying to compensate for their poor diets by consuming commercially made vegetable juice such as V8. It’s a step in the right direction, reflecting a growing recognition that we need more fruits and veggies in our diet, and it’s certainly convenient. But store-bought fruit or vegetable juice is not the best answer since it is neither fresh nor chemical-free. Let’s explore the amazing benefits of juicing fresh fruits and vegetables.
First of all, you can easily make nutritious fresh juice at home and even modify juicing recipes to meet your personal taste.
Perhaps most importantly, you can use special combinations of freshly juiced fruits and vegetables to prevent and even fight many medical conditions. Fruits and vegetables are filled with essential vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that are vital to fighting and even curing many common disorders. Here are just a few examples. Recent research indicates that cabbage juice helps to treat peptic ulcers. Another study shows that keracyanin, which is found in cherries, eases gout by increasing the movement in fingers and toes. We know that cranberry juice prevents kidney stones and urinary tract infections. Grapes contain a compound called trans-resveratol, and by drinking at least three glasses of grape juice a day, you can prevent heart attacks just as effectively as taking an aspirin on a daily basis. The pit of the grape contains powerful antioxidants called proanthocyanidins, which are considered even more potent antioxidants than vitamin C or vitamin E. Juicing grapes gives you all of these benefits because when you put them into the juicer you get all the nutrients including those found in the seeds.

Commercially bottled juices, even organic brands, simply do not provide as many healthy benefits that juicing fresh fruits and vegetables gives you. Most commercial juices are made from fruit concentrates and not whole fruit juices. Plus, commercial juice must by law be pasteurized before it can be sold. Part of the pasteurizing process includes boiling the juice to stop the growth of bacteria. However, the boiling process also destroys many natural vitamins and minerals. A huge benefit of juicing at home is avoiding the boiling process. Juicing at home enables you to ingest the total nutritional value of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Start with just one glass of fresh juice each morning to boost your health and energy – you’ll be surprised at how much better you’ll feel!
