Hello Everyone. Today’s article is a guest post from Tefal
Reasons Why You Should Be Juicing
Almost everyone is on the juicing wagon these days, with the vast majority of households in the UK drinking them on a weekly basis.
Research shows that the more fruits there are in juice, the more appealing it is to drink, and what better way to pack as much fruit flavour as possible into your juice than to get squeezing at home. What’s more is the higher number of fruits, the higher number of vitamins and the best way to get the maximum benefits out of your juice is to drink it within the first 15 minutes after juicing, so making it at home to drink straight away is the healthiest option too.
When it comes to juicing the majority of drinkers want maximum flavour and more juice! Some juicers are great for providing this. Take the Tefal Infiny Press for example, it gives you 30% more juice, 35% more vitamin C for fighting those common colds and 75% more antioxidants. Whether it’s a refreshing breakfast juice, a mid-morning fresh fruit drink or adding the finishing touches to that scrumptious dessert, juicing is truly revolutionary.
Juice cleanses have also become very popular and are typically recommended for people who need a bit of a kick-start when their diet or lifestyle has left them feeling sluggish and unhealthy. The over-processed, low-fibre, fat-heavy and sodium-laced diet that is pretty standard in the UK is a primary cause of digestive issues, poor immune system health, slow cognitive function, unhealthy weight gain, and poor energy levels as well as dull, grey, and unhealthy looking skin.
More Advantages Of Juicing
Juicing can provide the body with much needed nutrients like vitamin C, potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc, and plant-based antioxidants like anthocyanins.
By increasing fibre intake and reducing the consumption of unhealthy trans fats, sodium, and pro-inflammatory animal-derived foods, a healthy juice diet is often a great way to revitalise and reenergise the body and give the liver, kidneys and skin a chance to detoxify and expel toxins that have accumulated.
Would You Benefit From A Juice Cleanse?
Juice cleanses can be ideal for those who need to reassess their diet and alter how they approach food and nutrition in general. Following a juice cleanse, people often have an increased awareness of how their body reacts to certain foods, giving them the opportunity to make healthier choices long-term.
For some people a daily cleansing juice is all part of a healthy routine, with the juice acting as a powerful nutritional supplement to a well-balanced diet.
Adding Protein To Healthy Juices
For those who want, there are great protein options to add into juices include hemp protein, pea protein, soy and brown rice protein – these all offer easily assimilated amino acids to help build the specific proteins the body needs for strong and healthy muscles.
These plant-based proteins also avoid many of the undesirable pro-inflammatory effects of animal proteins and can have benefits for blood sugar regulation and control of undesirable cell proliferation. Adding in spirulina or another source of protein can turn a daily juice into a fantastic post-workout shake, or try mixing in some ginger and lemon for a great way to get the digestive system working first thing in the morning.
Juicing at home does require a pretty heavy-duty juicer, as a regular food processor cannot normally handle the fibre content of raw vegetables and fruits. For this we recommend the New Tefal Infiny Press juicer, which works a treat! You can read more about this juicer and what it has to offer here; http://bit.ly/1pABEte
