He admitted it; As we get older, we all look in the mirror one morning and think, Oh my God, I wish I could have taken better care of myself. Wrinkles begin to appear, blemishes and blemishes become more pronounced, skin becomes duller, and we look older.
But what if there was a way to go back in time and make better decisions? Could you look younger? Could you BE younger? Obviously, as you read this article, you hope the answer is, YES, it is possible.
As a nutritionist, after losing weight, the question I am asked most often is what should I do to look younger? Naturally, there are effective methods to improve and maintain overall health, which certainly affect the elasticity and vitality of your skin, with the litany of diets, supplements, and skin creams out there, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and discouraged by false promises. .
One of the main obstacles that most Americans and Europeans (especially those in the UK) face is that our diets have affected the body’s natural ability to heal itself. We eat so much lifeless, over-processed, and nutritionally empty foods that our digestive systems are overloaded. Therefore, when we finally eat dense, lively nutritious food, we cannot fully benefit from this nutrition.
Fortunately, there is an answer; two answers actually:
- Whole Food Juices
The benefits of juices
Here’s a great trick to determining if a food is healthy: Check the water content. If you cut or squeeze it, is there juice? Like the human body, all “live” foods have significant water content. This liquid contains the lion’s share of the nutrients found in food. According to a study conducted by the Department of Agriculture, 90% of the antioxidant activity found in the 12 fruits studied was found in the juice. Also, another study published in the International Journal of Food and Nutrition Sciences:
“Cancer and cardiovascular benefits may be attributed more to antioxidants than fiber” They concluded that “[the theory that] the pure juices of fruits and vegetables are nutritionally inferior to the fruits and vegetables, in relation to the reduction of chronic diseases, it is not justified ”
Finally, we’ve since learned that juicing doesn’t remove all fiber from fruits and vegetables, only insoluble fiber is removed.
So why is this beneficial? The answer is the absorption of nutrients. Like I said before, our diets are loaded with dead food. This means that the food we eat is missing the live enzymes that our bodies need to digest and absorb nutrients. The body must move away from other processes and stimulate the actions of organs such as the pancreas to create the necessary enzymes, which is not as efficient.
Juice, on the other hand, is loaded with enzymes and is very easy to digest and absorb. Remember in elementary school when you learned that digestion begins in the mouth? That’s because we chew food and it mixes with saliva in our mouth. The juices simply replicate this process, but on a much more efficient scale!
This means that even in an enzyme-deprived body, you are going to absorb and benefit from the plethora of nutrients found in the juice you drink!
