Juicing: Boost your Immune System to Fight Off Disease

March 25, 2020

 

In light of the health concerns surrounding our community as of late, we feel a great responsibility in protecting those around us.


To all the members of our Juicing Family, we would like to stress the importance of keeping your immune system at its optimal state. Please take a minute and read our tips on staying as safe and healthy as you can be in these uncertain times.

As we are all aware, the Corona Virus is a test for all of us and we will prevail. Aside from washing our hands and keeping yourself from public places with large amounts of people, there are also very IMPORTANT IMMUNE system tips that we would like to suggest to you.

Turmeric & Ginger are one of the most powerful natural ingredients that can strengthen and build immune systems. Most internal diseases stem from inflammation in the body so Anti-Inflammatory properties strengthen us 🔥

Increase your intake of Organic Vegetables & Fruits. Drink plenty of water with lemonade to increase the pH balance. Cut down on smoking, exercise indoors, sleep well and reduce your intake of alcohol. 

Increase your intake of organic cold pressed juices, or juice at home when possible. Not only does juicing help to prevent and protect against disease, but it also empowers the body with energy and improves the functions of the immune system. “Juicing increases the amount of raw food we consume and supplies the body with more energy, which boosts the immune system and aids the body's cleansing process” (Lyons 2010). Murray (1992) adds that a diet in which an average of 60% of the calories ingested come from raw foods reduces the stress on the body. 

Consuming fruits and vegetables in a juice form makes it much easier on the digestive system, especially the small intestine, during the absorption process and results in increased energy levels.  The body can utilize nutrients quicker and more efficiently because juice is a liquid and travels through the body rapidly, as opposed to whole foods which take time to digest and breakdown.  Juice is a great source of water, easily absorbable protein, carbohydrates, and essential fatty acids. We have become too fond of the joyous taste of sugary, fatty foods and are blind to all the valuable assets that vegetables and fruits have to offer.

Take these simple but critical measures and you will allow your body to best handle any virus and give you the best chance for succession
