The Power of Fresh Juice and Live Food

Benefits Of Juice Extractor

A juice extractor works in very much the same way as the human digestive system. The second food enters your body the digestion process begins. Your mouth and stomach prepare it for your digestive tract and intestines that squeezes and extracts the JUICE out from the FIBER of the food. By the time it reaches the end of its journey all the nutritious components of the juice have been separated from the fiber and absorbed into your system, so only waste remains.

By putting fruit and vegetables through a juice extractor you take out the need for the above process and are able to get all the nourishment without the hard work.

You don’t have to be a nutritional expert to know that fruit and vegetables are good for you. Generally, from the time we are old enough to remember our mothers have been teaching us this. These days with our diet of cooked and processed food we need to redress this imbalance by eating more healthy vegetables. Imagine trying to eat a dozen raw carrots in a day. Sure, it wouldn’t be impossible, but who would really want to? It would take a tremendously long time and your jaw would get tired from all the chewing. It also takes a lot of effort for your stomach to digest this hard, raw food.

Carrots put through a juice extractor are transformed into a powerfully healing super food in an easy-to-drink and delicious liquid form. Now you have all the essential vitamins, minerals, nutrients and liver enzymes of the carrots in one extremely powerful and healthy glass that is an absolute pleasure to drink. All the healing benefits of this great tasting beverage are quickly and easily assimilated into your body and require virtually no energy to digest.

Now you may say, “I can easily buy some carrot juice or other fruit or vegetable juice from a store in a bottle or carton to get the same kind of nutrition.” Well! Firstly read the label of a store-bought, so-called ‘juice’ and you’ll see for yourself that these are a potent mixture of sugars, preservatives, emulsifiers, additives, chemicals, colorings, flavorings and pasteurized juice. Pasteurized is really a fancy word for ’cooked,’ and by law, the store-bought juice has to be cooked between 160° – 200° Fahrenheit / 71° – 93° Celsius which destroy the nutritional value and living enzymes. Fresh is best and closest to the vine is the most divine.

A healthy body needs live enzymes. When we don’t give our body live enzymes by eating live food, as in eating too much cooked or processed food (dead/ empty food), our pancreas kicks into action and will produce these live enzymes that our body needs. This, however, is not the main function of the pancreas, but it will do this because our body needs these enzymes for general daily functioning. The pancreas’s main purpose is to produce insulin for the body, but in performing this secondary function it becomes overworked and doesn’t perform as well as it should.

After eating of cooked food for years, the overburdened pancreas can swell to four times its size. The body starts to break down and disease can set in. Live food repairs and restores the cells that are damaged and also builds new cells. In order to let the pancreas do its main function, you need to be getting these living enzymes from your food.
