One way to increase your intake of fruits and vegetables is through juicing. It is a great way to try a variety of items and obtain the nutrients from the types that you usually wouldn’t eat.
The health benefits that you get from juicing are similar to what you would get from the whole versions. The minerals, vitamins, and phytonutrients can help protect against:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Inflammatory diseases
Juicing can also help with digestion, act as a detoxifier, and even help with weight loss.
One downfall of drinking your nutrients is that you don’t get the fiber, which has many health benefits as well. To combat this, aim to eat two servings of whole vegetables/fruit a day.
