The Benefits of Organic Juicing and Smoothies by John Barlow

Organic smoothies and Juicing - John Barlow - MinneapolisIf you’ve decided to make some changes in the way you eat, consider the new trend of juicing. But “Why Juice?”, you may be asking yourself.

Valuable micronutrients are destroyed when heating food, which is why an uncooked juice made with organic/fresh fruits and vegetables is the best way to ensure you receive proper nutrients. With a properly balanced juice, you can easily receive the required daily serving goal for fruits and vegetables with minimal effort and maximum taste.

Why does this matter so much, what are the actual benefits of receiving fruits and vegetables in the natural juice state? Reality is, our bodies digestive systems are literally impaired from years of eating processed food. This means our bodies take in less of the nutrients that fruits and vegetables naturally offer. Juicing refreshes your bodies way of digesting and allows you the maximum intake of the nutrients almost instantly.

We all know that fruits and vegetables are important, but eating them in high quantities daily isn’t always easy, or fun. Juicing makes taking in a wide variety of fruits and vegetables easy, fun AND delicious!

There are several local businesses that have taken this healthy kick to a whole new level and have made a thriving business out of it. Truce Juice Bar in Uptown and the Wedge Co-op are two local businesses that offer fresh organic juices made from a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. These juices are delicious and made to order for your specific requirements. Visit either one for a taste of what a real serving (or 5) of fruits and vegetables can be like. Do your body a favor and get those essential nutrients the right way.
