Our Daily routine of starting day with fresh juice

Starting your day with healthy choices can provide much needed energy and revitalise you. Not only it freshen you up but also helps increase your focus, productivity and keeps your weight in check. 

Fresh juice has the ability to deliver another important group of nutrients – enzymes. Enzymes are your body’s work force. Acting as catalysts in hundreds of thousands of chemical reactions that take place throughout the body, enzymes are essential for digestion and absorption of food, for conversion of digested food into body tissue, and for the production of energy at the cellular level. In fact, enzymes are critical for most of the metabolic activities taking place in your body every day. Adding freshly-squeezed fruit and vegetable juice or a smoothie is a great way to get more nutrients during the early part of your day when you truely need your body and mind to perform at its best. 

If you already have a set menu for breakfast that you like eating every day, just adding one glass of juice can add lot of goodness to your most important meal of the day. Other reason why people  like to juice is to be able to rapidly absorb an array of nutrients. This is great when you are detoxing, feeling under the weather or just need a nutritional energy boost. Juices don’t have fibre like smoothies and that is why they are good in moderation, depending on what you put into them.

  1. Lemon juice helps purify the blood and removes a whole lot of metabolic waste from the body.
  1. A great source of polyphenols, which are antioxidants known to reduce the risk of cancer and heart diseases, a glass of strawberry juice topped with fresh cream is great for health and also helps keep teeth milky white.
  1. A healthy dose of Vitamin K-rich spinach juice can help keep your bones strong, gross as it may sound. 
  1. Pomegranate helps in treating depression and maintaining bone mineral density? A mixture of carrot, beetroot and pomegranate is a healthy choice to kick-start your the day.
  1. Glass of garlic and carrot juice keeps your blood pressure in check. And if you don’t like the taste, don’t worry. Just add some oranges to bring in a tiny bit of flavour to the mix.

You are probably wondering, “Why not eat the whole vegetables and fruits instead of extracting the juice and discarding the fibre?” The answer is, solid foods require many hours of digestive activity before their nourishment is finally available to the cells and tissues of the body. However, the removal of the fibres in the extraction of the juices enables them to be quickly digested and assimilated with minimum of effort.
