Nutrients from juices

We all desire to live a long and healthy life. Our efforts are always directed towards that goal. When we get ill, we try to get a speedy recovery from the illness, mostly by using drugs prescribed by our doctors.

However, we can also easily eliminate such illness with success through the use of nutritious vegetable and fruit juices, free from the toxins contained in the drugs.

To benefit from the from the nutrients in the juices, they must always be fresh. Only live juices are effective for cure of disease. For example, carotene , (which is converted in to vitamin ‘A’) is very sensitive to oxygen in the air – if you shred or cut carrots in small pieces and keep it unused for, say 20 minutes, most of the vitamin ‘A’ it contains will be destroyed.

The sane goes for lemons, oranges and other citrus fruits, where most of the vitamin ‘C’ contained will be destroyed when these fruits are preserved for over one month. Even refrigerator cannot prevent this loss.

The most important point here is how to get all the nutrients that are contained in fruit and vegetable juices – because the recovery from the disease depends on the availability of all the nutrients contained in the fruit and vegetable juices.

Choice of the fruits and vegetables

On the first instance, the choice of the fruits and vegetables from which the juice is to be extracted is very important. The fruits and vegetables should be as fresh as possible.

How to extract the juice from fruits and vegetables

How you extract the juice from the fruits and vegetables is very important. Follow the steps below for better results:

.  Obtain fresh fruits or vegetables you want to extract juice from

.  Thoroughly wash the fruits or vegetables

.  Shred or cut them into small pieces

.  Immediately put the shredded fruits or vegetables into the juicer for extraction.

Note: Rinds and fibers of fruits and vegetables are rich sources of vitamins. They should be used together with the fruits or the vegetables but should be properly crushed.

Take care that the juice when ready for drinking does not contain fiber or rind.

To get the maximum benefits from the juices of fruits and vegetables, drink them fresh. Preserved juices lose their precious nutrients. Observe this rule – extract juice when you require to drink.

Every therapy that has no faith in the efficacy of medicine has conceded the importance of food for healthy life.Some of the eminent experts of modern medicine now lay emphasis on food therapy.

Medicine research has invariably established that the use of improper food is perhaps the root cause of many diseases. Therefore resorting to raw food, vegetables and fruits is seen as better way of improving health than cooked foods. Fruit juices are particularly more effective for health and nourishment.

Medical research has also proved that uncooked vegetable and juices of fruits can cure many diseases that cannot be cured by modern medicine.

However, we are also aware of the fact that there are yet many doctors and patients who are reluctant to use this alternative way of healing diseases. Do not be one of them!
