We are often asked to name one thing that can be done right away to get healthier. With respect to food choices, the best suggestion I have is to begin drinking freshly pressed vegetable juices. Drinking just one freshly pressed juice each day is a reliable way of infusing your body with a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients that can protect your cells against premature aging and disease.
Almost everyone who has studied nutrition can agree that freshly pressed vegetable juices are highly beneficial to human health. Yet few people drink them regularly.
Why? Making the time to drink vegetable juices isn’t a problem for most people. It’s the time needed to wash fresh vegetables, feed them through a good juicer, and clean the juicer afterward that prevents most people from making fresh juices a regular part of their lives.
So the first step to incorporating juicing into your life is to fully understand how good it is for your health and why making time to do it daily is one of the best investments of your time - one that will be repaid many times over with rewards to your health!
