Here in Long Branch, we are fortunate enough to have a cold pressed juice and fresh bar right in the neighbourhood at The Fix & Co. They’ve given us the lowdown on the benefits of juicing and how our bodies benefit from it.
“Summer is here, and if you’re like most of us, you’re probably looking for ways to reboot, re-energize and even shed a few pounds. Rest assured, there’s many ways to get your Fix even after the long winter months and weekend indulgences after all.
If you’ve asked yourself what’s the raw juicing hype all about at least once, then you’ve come to the right place. At the Fix & co, we not only offer organic, freshly cold pressed juices and homemade foods, we offer these with the up most nutrition and functionality in mind.
So what’s so the deal with juicing and who would benefit from it?
While there are copious amounts of therapeutic benefit to this fast acting, nutrient dense liquid gold; here are the top three you may want to consider.
- It’s a great tasting convenient and a supercharged way of getting dense nutrition in the cells. It’s like taking a supplement but better and with more assimilation and less work for the digestive system. Think of how much raw vegetables you would have to chew and digest when you can sip nutrients that can ultimately improve a poor appetite, nutrient deficiency’s, digestive issues and an inflamed stomach. To give you an idea, a medium glass of carrot juice (250mls) is approximately equivalent to eating a pound of carrots.
- Juices are packed with active enzymes to assist in the digestive process. Giving your liver, gut and pancreas a break from their overburdening jobs.
- Juices being alkaline can reduce the level of acidity in the blood and body which has been linked to promoting cancerous cells and tumor growth along with osteoporosis and many more ailments. A juice a day is the good way to keep the doctor away by combating the not so good habits of eating highly processed foods, caffeine, alcohol which have been known to cause inflammation.
