Juicing v Smoothies – the pros and cons of each
Juicing is one of my absolute favourite ways to get the nutrients in and super charge my immune system and I totally advocate juicing. I love it so much that I have a workshop dedicated to showing and teaching folks what it’s all about including tips and trick to make it easier. One of the common questions I tend to get from people about it is:
What is the difference between blending and juicing?
Blenders retain everything from the food. They take the fibre and pulp and blend it all together.
Juicers separate the pulp from the juice and we drink the juice only. When you first start out, juicing is a lot easier and gentler on your body. Whether you are juicing to treat a health condition or just to stay healthy, you will experience a lot of detoxification. If you are not used to all that fibre, the juice will still give you loads of energy.
When you advance, and if you enjoy the texture, go ahead and make smoothies. When we juice green vegetables, we liberate the chlorophyll and our bodies immediately absorb it.
Chlorophyll is a detoxifier, deodorant and is an incredible healer of inner and topical inflammation and wounds. The chlorophyll remakes our blood. It is centered on magnesium and our blood is centered on iron.
You need to be careful to use simple juices if you are on a lot of medication. If you are very sick, you will probably release toxins very quickly. This will happen in the form of bowel movements. Sometimes your liver dumps a lot of toxins. Chlorophyll is a neutraliser of toxins and can deal with anything you have. It is good for kidney, heart and liver conditions. Green juice is an amazing detoxifier. Whichever method you decide to go with, you’re getting the nutrients in and rocking your way to a healthier, stronger immune system!
