Are you a juicer or a blender type of person? I am a blender type of person. This means that I blend more than I juice. I am realizing that I may need to juice more.
As a matter of fact, I plan to do more juicing and to possibly do a juice fast in the future. But for now, I am reading information about juicing, so that I can do things the right way.
While thumbing through Dr. Jensen’s Juicing Therapy book, I came across some interesting information about green juices/green drinks. Reading this information has motivated me to take a closer look into juicing regularly.
It does not make any sense for me to have a Tribest Green Star 3000 Deluxe Juicer and let it collect dust. Mr. Green Star, your gears are about to get a good work out.
Why Green Juices?
Green juices have chlorophyll, essential trace minerals, vitamins and other nutrients that are beneficial for the body. Chlorophyll is the “lifeblood” of plants and the chlorophyll molecule is almost identical to the hemoglobin molecule of blood.
Juices rich in chlorophyll has a cleansing effect on the bowels and elimination systems. This results in the cleansing of the blood, lymph, and intercellular fluid. A clean body is a well oiled body, meaning that it works well and is efficient, assimilates nutrients well, and is full of energy.
