Have you ever felt like there were a million tiny men blowing bubbles in your stomach causing a flux of unusual and never ending gas that comes out both ends? Probably the only free gas you don’t want in your life. Unfortunately, millions of people in the United States suffer from digestive issues; bloating, IBS, gastric reflux, constipation, & Crohn’s disease are a few of the more common ailments. Prescription medication is often given out, which lends temporary relief, however, the patient’s symptoms typically resurface & BOOM the cycle of gastric distress rages on!
Juicing is a process by which fluid is mechanically separated from plants’ intricate network of fiber. The resulting liquid contains water soluble vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals, many of which are easily assimilated by our cells, supporting a laundry list of metabolic processes. Nevertheless, consumption of fruits and vegetables are linked to a lower incidence of disease, as concluded by a 2015 study published in the Journal Epidemiology. While consuming 7-10 servings of veggies daily is advised, few Americans meet this criteria. However, since juicing condenses multiple cups of veggies into liquid form, when combined with regular consumption of whole veggies & fruit, consumers can significantly increase their dietary intake of natural foods, helping prevent & potentially reverse disease.
