Vegetable juice comes in all different colours and sizes, and while you may not be as enthusiastic about vegetable juices as we are, we think you should be! Here’s why:
What are vegetable juices?
As the name suggests, vegetable juices consist of a lot of different vegetables, which are cold pressed, essentially separating the liquid from the fibre of the vegetables.
Our vegetable juices are made of many different vegetables, combined to create a delicious drink which packs a punch of nutrients! Each vegetable in our juices contains special substances which are healthy. We have chosen to include a variety of different vegetables for each drink to get as many different nutrients in one drink as possible.
Benefits of vegetables juices
Vegetable juice is packed with nutrients. This is not surprising, as there are a lot of servings of vegetables in a bottle. As a result, vegetable juice is not only tasty but also very healthy.
It’s common knowledge that fruits and vegetables are of the most abundant sources of health-promoting compounds such as vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fibre.
Being Vegan has incredible health benefits
Vegetables often contain a lot of vitamin C, E, K, iron, magnesium, potassium, folic acid, and electrolytes, and much much more. The amount of nutritional values depends on the vegetable that has been processed into the juice. Green vegetables in particular owe their colour to chlorophyll. Which is a substance that has detoxifying properties, which helps improve your immune system, cleanses your skin, kidneys and stimulates the production of red blood cells. An array of positive properties!
It has been recommended by health care professionals that we should be having between 375 and 500 grams of vegetables or fruits in our daily diets. However, this is simply not achievable for many people!
Drinking juices is an easy way to increase your daily nutritional intake. Without the added effort of digesting and breaking down fruits and vegetables when eaten whole, juicing allows your body to absorb nutrients more readily and more quickly resulting in a quick and easy dose of nutrition.
In particular, raw fruits and vegetables have shown the most health benefits. You’re giving your body easy-to-absorb nutrients without the calories, keeping you light yet properly nourished.
It is rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, helps your brain to function better and gives your beauty a boost. Drinking vegetable juice makes your skin shine, and helps hair growth.
Vegetable juicing benefits the skin by helping to maintain a healthy gut and giving the body skin-loving and beautifying antioxidants and vitamins. The state of one’s gut health can be reflected in their skin.
An individual with an inflamed gut will likely have skin inflammation such as acne and pimples whereas a healthy gut will likely have healthy skin. Juicing promotes a healthy gut, which in turn promotes healthy skin.
While you can drink vegetable juices at any time of the day to replace a snack, drinking vegetable juice in the morning leaves individuals feeling extra energized for the day because of the quick dose of nutrition they receive first thing in the morning.
Try making a habit of drinking fresh vegetable juice every morning. Compared to fruit juices, vegetable juices contain less natural sugars, so the number of calories is therefore lower in vegetable juice.
While a full juice fast is best recommended by a nutritionist and your healthcare provider for weight loss, swapping a meal or snack every now and then with a freshly pressed juice will help maintain a healthy weight.
