Juicing & Staying Healthy During Winter
As I was looking through some paperwork one Sunday it was quite timely that I stumbled across an oldie but a goodie. The “Why Juice” article. At this time of year it was a good reminder of why juicing fruit and vegetables is a great idea to stay well from the inside out.
Our body is made up of so many living cells and we need nutrients, vitamins and minerals from living foods to fuel it. This is naturally grown foods that havent been cooked. What you find in a packet just doesnt cut the apple! A simple way to gain these living enzymes is by juicing fruit & vegetables.
Juicing can help boost your immune system, get rid of the nasties in your body, help with digestion and increase your energy levels. The juicing recipes are endless, even without a recipe juicing what you have already got can produce some really tasty goodness! If a recipe is what you need check out our range of books for some inspiration. Give it a go today.
If you don’t have a juicer or lead a busy life then don’t forget BarleyMax! It is an exceptionally pure superfood, that has been created by using a patented drying process, finely strained juice from these grasses is gently dehydrated to lock in nutritional potency and retain the highest enzyme activity of any juice powder you can buy. Total Health even has BarleyMax casules for those that are regularly on the go – convenient!
Other important things to help you stay well during winter include staying hydrated, getting enough of those precious zzzz’s and don’t forget to move! Keeping physically fit is just as important no matter what age or stage in life you are and there is something for everyone to keep moving.
Nothing like a favourite juice recipe from Green Star to get you started:
