As Seen in Local Life: The healthy benefits of drinking your fruits and vegetables

Juicing continues to be a way of life for many health conscious individuals, and for many good reasons. Juicing, which is the process of extracting the juice from fresh fruit or vegetables resulting in a nutrient-rich liquid, is a more effective way to absorb high concentrations of these nutrients into the body. With the same nutrients as the original whole fruit and vegetables, the juicing process removes fiber to make the juice more concentrated, making nutrients easier to digest. Often referred to as “vitamin and mineral infusions,” your body does little digestive work in order to extract the nutrients, allowing high concentrations of nutrients to be absorbed directly into your blood stream and cells.    

Not only is juicing a great way to get both kids and adults to benefit from nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables they might not eat on their own, but juicing also has a number of specific health benefits. In addition to being easy to digest, juices are the easiest way to get phytonutrients in their most absorbable form and provides juices that are extremely alkaline (important in overall health because cells in the body need to maintain their natural alkaline balance in order to stay healthy.). 

Juicing offers health benefits that most people say they feel immediately, providing far more energy than coffee, aiding in proper and healthy bowel movements and sometimes assisting in weight loss. In addition to being low in calories, juices curb your appetite and consumed on a regular basis, can lead to diminished cravings for sugar and refined carbs. Equally as important for those who may tend to shy away from eating their vegetables, you can consume an enormous amount of vegetables at one time, making “eating healthy” easier than ever.

“The juice from fruits and vegetables are pure gifts from the earth,” said Leslie Rohland, owner of The Juice Hive, a juice bar in Bluffton Village that offers a wide variety of organic cold-pressed juices and smoothies. “It is the most natural way to feed, nourish and heal our body.”
