Renewing the Mind, Body, and Spirit through juicing

Juicing and Illness

There is lots of research that shows the healing properties of juicing. Not only will juicing facilitate weight loss, increased energy levels, strengthened immunity, strong bones and a glowing complexion, it may also reduce chances of heart disease, cancer and strokes, three of the leading causes of death. A growing body of research suggests that most vitamin supplements don’t help prevent chronic disease. A synthetic vitamin or mineral is a laboratory simulation of the real thing. Natural, plant-based vitamins and minerals are more easily and completely absorbed by the body.

How to buy Limes

Select limes that are bright green in color and have a shine to their skin, realizing that sometimes they have been coated with wax, which will also give them a shine. They should feel firm and heavy for their size, because heavy limes will produce the most juice. Select limes with thin skins, avoiding the thicker skinned fruit, which is an indication of less flesh and juice. Avoid limes that are pale green and are showing signs of yellowing, which is an indication that the limes are getting close to being fully ripe. Fully ripe limes will have lost their acidity and will be bland in flavor compared to bright green tart limes. Select those that are fairly smooth skinned, free of blemishes and do not have soft or hard spots. Small brown spots on the limes does not indicate that there is a lose of juiciness or flavor, but if the limes are mostly brown in color, that may be an indication of scald, which will cause the fruit to have a moldy flavor. Avoid limes with shriveled skin or that feel spongy, which is a sign of old fruit that will have lost a lot of its juiciness.

Fresh vs Bottled

Fresh juice not only contains greater nutritional value, it contains life. Fresh pressed juice is like drinking a natural vitamin filled with living enzymes, essential minerals, antioxidants, and natural antibiotics, which are vital for optimal health. Bottled juices are pasteurized which means they are heated and processed, which can kill vitamins and minerals.

1 Apple
2 inch slice Onion
1 Carrot
1 Lemon
2 inch size Ginger
1 tablespoon Hemp seeds
