Garden of Eden - Natural Juices
Fresh fruit & vegetable juices have been shown
to possess remarkable health-promoting properties and have been used
for centuries to help treat a range of ailments.
|| Lime juice was, for example, found
to be an effective cure for scurvy in the sixteenth century
and this saved thousands of sailors' lives on their long voyages
around the world.
In more recent times, scientists have identified
the nutritional and biochemical properties of freshly-prepared fruit
and vegetable juices which account for their use in helping treat
so many health problems
Vegetable juices are lower in calories than fruit
juices, and almost all kinds of vegetables can be juiced. To start
out, here are some suggested vegetables that work well on a regular
leafy greens: parsley, lettuces and spinich.
The base vegetables: carrots,
cabbage, beets, celery, cucumbers, broccoli and pumpkin to name
but a few!
Carrots are well known as the universal vegetable
for juicing. Carrot juice has been well known as being a miracle
juice, or “the king of juices”. Many
people around the world have found that if they include carrot juice
in their daily diet, that their overall health improves enormously.
A common misconception is that carrot juice would be bitter or too
deep in flavor. In reality, when carrots are juiced, they are actually
very sweet tasting, and they mix great with other fruit juices,
especially apple juice. Carrot juice blends with practically all
other juices. It is a delicious nourishing beverage for all members
of the family at all times and it should be an important part of
the diet in cases of illness. You can also use carrot juice to lose
weight by adding celery while juicing. This will help decrease the
sweetness of the carrot juice. Carrot juice is best ingested in
the afternoon because of the burst of energy that always follows.
