In case you're not convinced and really need some incentive to start green juicing, here are some additional points on the health benefits of green juice.
Green juices are filled with chlorophyll - a miraculous, life-enhancing substance identical to hemoglobin (except for the center atom). It is believed that this similarity means that chlorophyll, when consumed, can easily be converted to hemoglobin, which will increase the quality and quantity of red blood cells, boosting energy and increasing well-being!
Moreover, there is proof that chlorophyll regenerates the body at a molecular and cellular level. That is, it cleanses the body, fights infection, heals wounds and aids detoxification. When you factor in the fact that cooking breaks down chlorophyll, that is even more incentive to get started on a raw food program.
In addition, fresh green vegetables and leafy greens are loaded with antioxidants, which have been proven to prevent cell damage. Cell damage leads to genetic mutation resulting in cancer. So, the more antioxidants you consume, the stronger your defense against cancer.
One of the easiest ways to consume more chlorophyll and antioxidants is with juicing, as piles and piles of vegetables go into one cup of juice!
Finally, by fuelling your body with massive amounts of important vitamins, minerals and nutrients on a daily basis, your immune system will grow stronger and sickness will be less and less a factor in your life. Nowadays, many of us feel that we are at the mercy of disease, whether it’s something trivial like the flu, or something serious like cancer or diabetes. However, by drinking green juice and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, a person can really take control of their health and spend less time sick in bed.
