Total Juicer Pro: The Benefits of Juicing

There's no denying that America is on a serious health kick. Whether its logging hours on the treadmill or filling grocery carts with leafy greens or vegetables, it appears that everyone is taking a stance on achieving optimal health by eating clean or juicing. Popular slogans such as "Eat Clean, Live Clean" are no longer personal mantras for the health savvy and conscious but the average Joe trying to lose the last ten pounds. And why not? The health benefits associated with eating clean and juicing are tremendous.

With that being said here are 5 things you need to know about juicing:

1. Aim to drink two glasses a day. Most people find that eating large quantities of vegetables is, at best, a bit of a chore and, at worst, screamingly boring, but the full, health-giving benefits can be easily accomplished by a quick glass of vegetable juice, aim to drink at least two.

2. Juice is not a smoothie! A juice is a drink made using a juice extractor which provides all the liquid without any of the fiber. A smoothie is made by mixing whole ingredients into a pulp into a blender. For a pint of juice, you'll use three times more vegetable than you would for smoothie, which means you're receiving three times more of the good stuff--the life-giving vitamins and minerals.

3. Juice your vegetables. Eat and/or blend your fruit. Fruit is sweet and if you remove the fiber, it becomes even more highly glycemic. Not good! You may find yourself suffering from mood-swings and increased cravings for sweet food like sugar and carbohydrates--those chocolate bars again!) Also it's already easy to eat 3-4 fruit a day-and delicious as well. So why bother? Its the juice of green vegetables from which you will benefit the most.

4. Why Greens? Chlorophyll is the magic ingredient. It's the pigment responsible for green color in plants. It enables them to "trap" energy from sunlight. Chlorophyll assists in red blood cell regeneration, enhancing the oxygenation process. It cleanses the digestive system, assists in purifying the blood, eliminates bacteria, disinfecting and detoxifying as it goes about its work. Oh, and it balances the body's acid-alkali levels. Chlorophyll is rich in zinc, selenium, vitamins E, C, and A, biotin, pantothenic and folic acids, calcium, chromium, phosphorus, potassium and magnesium. Not to mention iron.

5. What about protein? Your juice will provide some of the protein complex, but take a few nuts or seeds with your juice. They'll help you absorb it better, as well as making it a more complete food.

So how do you get started? 
Purchase a juicer!
