Juicing is rapidly becoming all the rage. But do you know and understand the reasons behind this trend? Does this really benefit you and your health? Truly, without adequate knowledge just following various food trends and fads could put you at risk for health problems.
The practice of juicing is useful for many people because when you consume your food in liquid form your intestines don’t have to work so hard to digest the food. That means you can get your nutrients faster into your body and thereby increase your health.
Your internal organs or intestines actually are muscles that squeeze together to help mash up your food. You don’t feel this as you are going through your day to day activities. Eventually though you will need to rest these muscles in order to make them stronger. Juicing also feeds the helpful bacteria that live in your gut and help with your immune system. Many people say that you live and die by the health of your colon and by juicing you make your colon stronger.
While some may scoff at you for trying this out it is worth giving this a shot for 3 days to a week to see how you would get accustomed to just drinking your food on a periodic basis.
