Juicing for beauty

The juice craze has been a well-known fad for the past few years. Unlike most fads that come and go, the extreme health benefits of this lifestyle have caused many people to add fresh juice into their daily routine, not just as a short-term diet. The Standard American Diet (S.A.D.) is sorely lacking in fruits and vegetables, the building blocks to health, beauty, and longevity. When one juices, they take the most nutrient dense foods on the planet, discard the fiber, and absorb more healing nutritional properties than previously possible. Sure, juicing will make you feel more energized after the initial detox process, but will it help one to look more attractive?

The answer is yes! Do you notice those obnoxious little pimples, dry skin, and cellulite bumps that appear after a night of less-than-stellar eating or going out on the town? They are actually your body’s way of storing toxins that were consumed the night before. When one juices, the rich nutrients in foods such as cucumbers, bell peppers, beets, apples, broccoli, and spinach act as microbial size Janitors for the body, getting rid of the trash and fixing things that are broken. This helps your body to run more efficiently, and more easily flush those unsightly little toxins.

Here is a tasty juice recipe from The Complete Book of Juicing, a wonderful guide for anyone new to the world of juice, to help you get started:

Cleansing Cocktail

4 carrots
1 apple
2 celery ribs
1 beet (with roots and tip)
½ cup of wheat grass or parsley
Juice all ingredients and enjoy!
