As a working professional, it is not always easy to stay healthy. You are always on the go, your co-workers want to do Friday lunches out and weekly happy hours, and you just HAVE to eat that chocolate bar you found in your desk drawer.
We can all relate to this, but we can all also relate to that guilty feeling afterwards, when you know you should’ve gotten salad instead of chicken fingers. Sometimes, you think it may even be impossible to change your eating habits. However, there can be one very simple solution- juice!
So many people are apprehensive about starting a juice cleanse, as they think they will be starving and just want to stuff their faces by the time it’s over. The truth is, it’s a lot easier than you may think and there are tons of benefits!
Here are three reasons why now is the perfect time to bring juice into your life.
Nutrients, Nutrients, Nutrients
According to the food pyramid, we are supposed to be eating 3-4 servings of fruit and vegetables everyday. Sometimes, it can be difficult for everyone to consume this many servings. However, juice can make this goal a lot easier and more reachable.
Our personal favorite juice brand, Gundalow Juice, explains that juicing allows our bodies to absorb all the same nutrients as eating raw fruits and vegetables would, but without the fibers.
By removing the fibers, your cells can absorb the nutrients faster, giving you the boost of energy you need to get through the day. Rather than crunching on the apple all day, you are able to get the same amount of servings in, and it helps you out a lot quicker than just plain fruits and vegetables would!
Juicing can be a life-changing, and life-elongating thing! Dr. Oz explains that the nutrients you consume from juicing helps protect against cancer, cardiovascular disease, various inflammatory diseases, and protects against oxidative cellular damage.
Remember while juicing does help these health concerns, it is also part of a healthy and rich diet. Eating other healthy foods like lean meats and nuts while on a juice cleanse will keep your body at its best.
A Brand New You
Along with providing your body with more nutrients, juicing helps to rid your body of toxins. According to Bembu, juicing detoxes your body, which helps important and vital organs, such as the liver, function more properly. You will hear many people say juicing helped them get rid of that sluggish feeling, or even that their skin has a glow to it.
Your body is kind to you, so take these tips and treat your body to a refreshing juice today!
